“Shames The West”

That’s right. The “correct,” woke German take. Not “shames the individual responsible,” Joe Biden.

The “West” may be clinically dead, but it’s reassuring to know that the reflex of our collective, knee-jerk obsession with guilt still works.

Afghan turmoil ‘shames’ the West, says German president – Images of throngs trying to flee Kabul are shameful for Western nations, Germany’s president said on Tuesday, as desperate people clamoured at the airport after the Taliban takeover.

“We are experiencing a human tragedy for which we share responsibility.”

German Of The Day: Schwarzfahren

That means “riding black.” That is, using public transportation without having a ticket.

Or at least that’s what it used to mean before the Woke Folk took control of Berlin’s public transport operator. There are no racial connotations with this word unless you want there to be so now there are and that’s why its use has been verboten.

Berlin public transport operator BVG will stop using the German term “schwarzfahren” (or “blackriding”) to describe travelling without a valid ticket, it said on Friday.

The decision to discontinue using the expression, which is common in colloquial speech, implements a recommendation from the Berlin Senate’s diversity programme, a spokesperson told broadcaster rbb.

German Of The Day: Erhöhtes Bewusstsein

That means having a higher level of consciousness. You know, like being woke, as in wokeness or wokery?

Wokery

Here’s an example: The very divisive president: Joe Biden has unleashed a wave of wokery in his first ten days that will enrage millions – as his supporters in Silicon Valley shut down dissent. Hmmm. Wasn’t Biden the one always proclaiming the need for unity and healing? Maybe I misunderstood what he was getting at.

Biden announced the purchase of an extra 200 million vaccinations. But those were already on the way as part of the contracts negotiated by Trump.

Similarly, the new administration let it be known that the President was planning to invoke a wartime measure – the Defense Production Act – to force companies to increase vaccine supply.

But again, Trump had already done that and industry sources told the New York Times that there was no scope to go any further.

There is a clear pattern that’s already emerging: a massive gulf between President Biden’s words and his actions…

In his first two days in office, Biden issued 17 executive orders, compared to Trump’s one and Obama’s two in the same timeframe.

Biden’s tally is now higher than any President in history at this point in their tenure. Moreover, his orders represent dramatic moves to the Left in major and controversial policy areas such as immigration, the environment and crime.
