Stupidity rules, ok?

Euphemisms and double standards

Picture this: The police break up a black market "business", confiscate the contraband present there and arrest the people running the market. It’s not exactly sci-fi, it happens from time to time. The government is cracking down on crime, making the streets safe and all that. This criminal regime has destroyed and stolen the properties of people who are trying to make an honest living through informal trading, describing the events in this manner would probably brand you as somewhat bias (if not a complete loon). Well, not if it all took place in a place like Zimbabwe. Because in Zimbabwe the government is BAD and there are no real criminals, only political opposition. Ok, ok, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that the press thrives on putting up double standards; differentiating between the foreign and the domestic, between them and us. But come on, how liberal can you get? Even the journalists turned campaigners must know a bottom low!

Yet again, stupidity rules the liberals, ok?
