...an attack against the poors?!?

I was surfing ravelry, because i'm avoiding work and decided to check out their their thread on the guy who was questioned by police for knitting in Starbucks. Cute story, right? And BOOM in the middle of the thread someone posts this:

I read this fellows blog all the time. Mad Man Knitting. He has also written some short books that are fab. His life has been difficult but rather than whine or take welfare like so many able bodied folk he makes teddy bears and lives simple. He is great. It breaks my heart to think he has been made to move by uppity people.

What??? How did his being poor and making stuffed bears turn into a swipe at those lazy welfare bums? How?? I'm gonna need a drink and some good tea to finish my paper now...
