GOP Rep: Let Wolves Loose On The Homeless. Problem solved!


Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young came up with a totally sane tactic in handling the homeless: Sic wolves on ’em.  On Thursday, he said that in some congressional districts, they “wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore,” if wolves were let loose upon the homeless population.


The Washington Post reports:

Young, who supports taking gray wolves off the endangered species list, mocked a letter 79 members of Congress sent urging Jewell to protect the gray wolf population. (In Alaska, for what it’s worth, you can hunt wolves.)

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

“They haven’t got a damn wolf in their whole district,” Young continued. “I’d like to introduce them in your district. If I introduced them in your district, you wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

We sought clarification to ensure we heard correctly. A spokesman for Young said the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Of course it was. Next he’ll say his comment which was quoted verbatim, was taken out of context.

Watch courtesy of the Washington Post:

Karoli on Crooks and Liars notes,”Substitute the word “homeless” with any other one, like say, “Republican lawmakers” and there would be an outcry. Amirite?”

Or bankstas. Or feed right wing Christians to the lions. That went over so well back in the day.
