The insanity that is now riding high among the Democrats tops anything that even the most outrageous satire could have predicted.
About a million years ago (when it was still mildly funny), SNL’s take on the Dukakis defeat included Joan Baez singing what was supposed to be an over-the-top version of insane lefty policies that the country had rejected. “Unilateral disarmament, abortion on demand, take everybody’s guns away, and toss them in the sand. Free needles for the addicts, free condoms for the kids. We’ll not blame the criminal for anything he did.”
Those have since become just the default Democrat positions. Free crack pipes for the gay community would have been seen as too ridiculously over the top in the 80s and 90s.
Now it’s just the new abnormal normal.
The Biden administration is set to fund the distribution of crack pipes to drug addicts as part of its plan to advance “racial equity.”
The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant, which is overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services, are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any illicit substance.”
HHS said the kits aim to reduce the risk of infection when smoking substances with glass pipes, which can lead to infections through cuts and sores. Applicants for the grants are prioritized if they treat a majority of “underserved communities,” including African Americans and “LGBTQ+ persons,” as established under President Joe Biden’s executive order on “advancing racial equity.”
What could help black gay people more than free crack pipes for “underserved communities”? When I think of equity, I think that black gay people should have the same access to crack pipes as rich straight white men like Bill Gates or Warren Buffett. Or Joe Biden.
