The new favorite GQP pastime is whining about how mean and unfair President Biden is being by implementing a plan to forgive student loan debt, wiping out some or even all of it for many of our fellow Americans.
That includes former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling, who whined about how forgiveness was benefitting “a generation of lazy unaccountable uneducated children.” This is the same Curt Schilling who defaulted on a $75 million loan from Rhode Island for his company back in 2012. He left Rhode Island’s taxpayers on the hook for what he failed to pay back. Schilling’s behavior is just so typical. Those complaining the loudest tend to have government loans they didn’t pay back either by defaulting or having the loans forgiven.
Once the news reached Twitter, users responded by handing Schilling his ass and calling him out for his hypocrisy. This tweet is probably my favorite so far on this subject:
This fraudulent fuckmuppet is a perfect representative of hypocrisy of the student loan debt relief opponents. He cost the taxpayers of Rhode Island tens of millions of dollars, repaid his own loans from taxpayer money. https://t.co/JGKk3wXF6e

Here’s a quick tip for Republicans. Before you criticize how the President forgives government loans first make sure you don’t have any government loan financial skeletons in your own closet. And perhaps refrain from commenting on the subject at all. For one thing, you won’t look like a complete sanctimonious clod who’s spouting off that things are “fine for me but not for thee.” And for another, you’ll look like more of a human being who has empathy for others.
And finally, for those Republicans who claim to be Christian, as many have pointed out, their entire faith is based on a guy paying off a debt for humanity we could not possibly pay on our own. Maybe they should try reading their bibles instead of thumping them. Or sticking them where the sun doesn’t shine.
