Culture in Decline

I've been doing some changes to our Czech subtitles of Culture in Decline and in fifth episode, there's a thing i just have no idea how to translate.

"These neo-cons are suckling the buzzard. That ain't your mama!"

I've been searching and haven't found anything.

Big thanx in advance to anybody who offers helping hand.

I cannot help you. I do not fully understand it and don't want to guess what could be meant. There is a native speaker needed I would say.

Please, whenever asking a question like this, could you provide the information for others to find the video? This way we are able to help you much faster. However, I will do it for you now.

Hey, Emes. By a quick online search I found the definitions of these terms but this phrase seems like an idiom, so it may have a different meaning all together. However, if it was an idiom we could probably find it online. So, maybe it isn't? Not sure.
