The Maduro diet: How most Venezuelans lost an average of 43 pounds in two years

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

July 15, 2020

In May 2017, the Washington Post reported:

In a recent survey of 6,500 Venezuelan families by the country’s leading universities, three-quarters of adults said they lost weight in 2016 — an average of 19 pounds… a level of hunger almost unheard-of outside war zones or areas ravaged by hurricane, drought or plague.

In February 2018, Reuters reported:

Venezuelans reported losing on average 11 kilograms (24 lbs) in body weight last year… according to a new university study…

That’s 43 pounds in two years.

Before I explain how this came to happen, I want to start out by explaining what did not cause this to happen.

Comedy writer permanently banned from Twitter for saying “men aren’t women”

By Adam Ford

June 28, 2020

Irish comedy writer Graham Linehan has been permanently banned from Twitter after he tweeted “men aren’t women tho” in response to a tweet by a women’s group wishing men who identify as women a happy Pride Month.

Lineman, who had hundreds of thousands of followers on the social network, is the creator or co-creator of the sitcoms Father Ted, Black Books, and The IT Crowd.

Twitter said Linehan “has been permanently suspended after repeated violations of our rules against hateful conduct and platform manipulation.”

Former ESPN NBA reporter Chris Palmer praised protesters for burning down 189 units of affordable housing. But later, when protestors came to his own neighborhood, he got really scared.

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

Chris Palmer is a former ESPN NBA reporter.

He praised protesters for burning down 189 units of affordable housing.

But later, when protestors came to his own neighborhood, he got really scared.

Here’s a screenshot of his hypocritical tweets. You can see a bigger version of the image at this link: https://i.redd.it/szbv1kn485251.jpg

In the first tweet, Palmer shows a photograph of 189 units of affordable housing that was burned down by protestors. Palmer praised the protestors with the following words:

“Burn that shit down. Burn it all down.”

However, very soon afterwards, Palmer made two tweets where he complained about protestors coming to his own neighborhood.

In the first of those two tweets, he said:

“They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and are now in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live.”

In the second of those two tweets, he said:

“Welp. They’re gone. Security called the cops and they swarmed. Some scattered, others were arrested. (You hate to see it.) Tense moments. There’s graffiti everywhere. We live in a beautiful, safe community and have pride. These people had no pride and weren’t protestors.”

Palmer’s hypocrisy is some of the worst that I have ever seen.

Hypocrite New York Times writer Taylor Lorenz wants to shut down other people’s jobs, but not her own.

Taylor Lorenz is a writer for the New York Times.

On May 2, 2020, she made the following tweet, but deleted it soon afterward, because she could not handle the fact that other people disagreed with her. Fortunately, the Internet Archive saved a copy of her tweet before she deleted it.

This is the original link to her (deleted) tweet: https://twitter.com/taylorlorenz/status/1256761280150593537

And this is the link to the archived version of her tweet: https://web.archive.org/web/20200503014927/https:/twitter.com/taylorlorenz/status/1256761280150593537

This is the text of her tweet:

The “open up the economy” people are truly the dumbest ppl on here. How do they think the economy will look when millions are dead and our hospitals are overwhelmed? If u want to “save the economy” then u need to keep everyone *alive.*

Here is a screenshot of her tweet:

Taylor Lorenz has a job.

She gets a paycheck.

She uses that paycheck to pay for food, housing, etc.

But she is against other people having a job.

She is against other people getting a paycheck.

She is against other people using a paycheck to pay for food, housing, etc.

What a hypocrite!

Here is a screenshot of the tweet, taken from that archive:



On April 22, 2010, Johnson tweeted:

Imagine if a white person who worked as a CBS producer had said the same thing about blacks. There’s no way they’d still have their job.

Trying to figure out the real reason Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bans reporters from her town hall events

The New York Times reports that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has banned the media from two of her town hall meetings.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted the following explanation for the ban:

“Our community is 50% immigrant. Folks are victims of DV, trafficking, + have personal medical issues.”

“This town hall was designed for residents to feel safe discussing sensitive issues in a threatening political time.”

“We indicated previously that it would be closed to press.”

Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian, responded with the following tweet:

“And how does the presence of reporters make people feel unsafe?”

I think Jacob’s question is an excellent one.

I’d also like to point out that all of the other Congressional districts also have constituents who are “victims of domestic violence” and who have “personal medical issues,” but that the Congressional representatives and candidates of those other districts haven’t banned the media from their town hall events.

In the video below, YouTuber Styxhexenhammer666 says that one possible reason for Ocasio-Cortez’s media ban is that any illegal aliens in attendance would – justifiably – worry about being filmed by the media. However, he then goes on to say that Ocasio-Cortez could ask the media to keep their cameras focused on her and not the audience, and that they would likely comply.

Styxhexenhammer666 then goes on to say that he thinks her real reason for banning the media is that there might be a constituent in attendance who asks her a tough question about economics that she can’t answer. Specifically, he says that she doesn’t seem to understand that the only reason that democratic socialism in countries like Norway works is because there is a strong, healthy private sector to pay the taxes to fund it. Take away that strong, healthy private sector, and your country ends up like Venezuela.

I agree with him on both of these points.

U.K. man arrested for making a tweet that some poeple say is offensive

My concern here is not about whether or not the tweet is offensive, as that is a matter of opinion.

My concern is that he was arrested even though the tweet did not contain any threats of violence. The fact that someone could be arrested for this non-violent tweet is absolutely horrible.

The Guy Behind the Viral ‘Mealy Mouthed’ Tweet Has Been Arrested in London

The allegedly anti-Muslim tweet spawned a wave of parodies

March 25, 2016

A British man who posted an allegedly anti-Muslim message on Twitter following Tuesday’s terror attacks in Brussels has been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.

Matthew Doyle was apprehended by police on Wednesday in the south London suburb of Croydon, the BBC reported. He subsequently “expressed concerns for his health” and was taken to a nearby hospital, according to authorities.

Doyle’s tweet, which has since been deleted, read: “I confronted a Muslim woman yesterday in Croydon. I asked her to explain Brussels. She said ‘Nothing to do with me’. A mealy mouthed reply.”

Tuesday’s attacks, which targeted Brussels Airport and a major subway station, claimed at least 31 lives and injured more than 100 others.

The tweet went viral and prompted several parodies on a variety of topics, ranging from Bono to muesli.

I confronted an Irish women yesterday in Camden. I asked her to explain Bono. She said “Nothing to do with me”. A mealy mouthed reply.

— Rob Manuel (@robmanuel) March 23, 2016

I confronted a man who was eating a bowl of muesli yesterday in Croydon. He said “mmfflfffmufflrgh”. A mealy mouthed reply.

— Robbie Collin (@robbiereviews) March 23, 2016

I confronted Shaggy yesterday in Croydon. Asked him to explain creeping with the girl next door. He said “wasn’t me”. A mealy mouthed reply.

— Zan Phee (@zanPHEE) March 23, 2016

@MatthewDoyle31 I confronted Pingu yesterday in Croydon. I asked him to explain climate change. He said “MEEP MEEP”. A mealy mouthed reply.

— Joe Slack (@WhyHeeeyImJoe) March 23, 2016

I confronted a dog today & asked him about that time when I was 4 and a dog bit me. “woof” he said. A mealy mouthed reply.

— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) March 23, 2016

Doyle’s account, meanwhile, continued to tweet apparently racist messages and even retweeted a lot of the parodies insulting him.

Who cares if I insulted some towelhead ?? Really.

— Matthew P Doyle (@MatthewDoyle31) March 23, 2016

Holy Fuck ! The Towel head in my local kebab shop speaks no English? Has no NI number and was on his mobile to Syria #help

— Matthew P Doyle (@MatthewDoyle31) March 23, 2016

The 46-year-old public relations executive told the Telegraph on Wednesday that Twitter’s 140-character limit made the encounter sound far more confrontational than it was. He also said his controversial tweets were meant as a joke.

“That’s absolutely not who I am,” he said. “I’m not some far-right merchant, I’m not a mouthpiece for any kind of racism or radicalism.”

However, he did add that he feels Muslims are not being vocal enough in denouncing terrorism.

“The horror that happened in Brussels could happen here,” he added, “and you’re naive if you think London isn’t on some terror shortlist.”

Venezuelan military tells supermarket customers not to take pictures of empty shelves

The Venezuelan military has troops stationed in supermarkets, and they are telling customers not to take pictures of empty shelves. But that hasn’t stopped people from doing it. During the first week of 2015, the Twitter hashtag #AnaquelesVaciosEnVenezuela (“Empty shelves in Venezuela”) listed more than 200,000 tweets.

For example: (posted here under fair use from https://twitter.com/Indiferencia/status/551547489565016064/photo/1 )
