“It’s not a question of asking other people for help or being rescued or anything like that,” he added. “I think there’s only so many people that can take care of themselves, and can take care of other people. And the rest of the people … they’re useful in terms of compost for the whole planet, you know.”
Murray’s message of personal responsibility “seemed to play into the message of Republicans,” The Hill reported in an article on the “Squawk Box” appearance. The conservative-leaning Drudge Report linked it.”* Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) and Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks) discuss Murray’s comment and why it shows that he’s out of touch with middle class people.
