Col. West often talks about his simple southern upbringing, and the values instilled in him by his father Buck, and his mother “Snooks.” In his book, Guardian of the Republic, Col. West talks about the lessons he learned about responsibility from his grandfather and other elderly aunts.
Well, 72-year-old grandmother, Mother Agnus, is clearly cut from the same cloth! Her video lecture on the problems of modern women, lazy men and people living off welfare is going viral. As well it should!
As The Federalist Papers Project says:
The woman, who is called Mother Agnus by the man filming the rant, is full of opinion. While some would call her notions old-fashioned, the quick tongued, feisty woman with traditional values is resonating with internet users.
She also chastises lazy men and people who live off of entitlements. “I’m 72 years old and I still don’t mind working! I ain’t scared of work. [Welfare recipients] stay in the system and use up the elderly’s money.”
Is she “old-fashioned?” Are values and principles obsolete? We sure as heck hope not. Or else we’re doomed.
