Simon Black’s weekly chronicle of the absurd. From Black at sovereignman.com:
Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
California Public Health Department: “Stay Away from your Loved Ones”
“Love means staying away,” according to the California Department of Public Health.
The agency is using taxpayer funds to run ads with the tagline “Mom’s advice: Send flowers. Write a card. Stay away and protect your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.”
They even coined a new hashtag: #LoveMeansStayingAway.
And the ad campaign wouldn’t be complete without pictures of mom’s sharing photos of themselves with the hashtag written on their masks.
Abandoning your loved ones is heroic.
Shame. Guilt. Obey.
White People Not Qualified to be Foster Parents
A Montreal foster agency has told a white couple that they were not eligible to foster a child because the office is ‘saturated with Caucasian families.’
The Canadian couple applied and were accepted by their local foster agency. But when their file was transferred to another region with more children who needed homes, they were told:
‘[W]e are so saturated with Caucasian families that we have no need to look further for them in other boroughs. What we really need are black families and hispanic families. We don’t need Caucasian families.’
