The lefty counter-real headline gimmick is getting tiresome. But you can't turn the world upside down... without turning common sense upside down.
Oxfam, a lefty social justice charity, got caught doing the same thing in Haiti that the UN was doing.
The charities watchdog has demanded an urgent clarification from Oxfam after allegations that the charity covered up an inquiry into whether its staff used sex workers in Haiti during a 2011 post-earthquake relief effort.
One of the men allowed to resign without disciplinary action was Oxfam’s country director in Haiti, Roland van Hauwermeiren, who, according to the report, admitted using prostitutes at the villa rented for him by Oxfam with charitable funds.
Time for a scorching hot take from the Independent, a British lefty paper that once encountered Reason and Common Sense, and quickly, No Platformed it before running screaming in the other direction.
We need to increase the foreign aid budget following the Oxfam Haiti scandal
As the charity sex scandal deepens following new allegations of abuse, the Government needs to urgently review its foreign aid budget.
Specifically, it must increase its funding to Oxfam and other charities, which are rightly under scrutiny for employees’ bad behaviour and their own efforts to cover them up.
Yes, you read that rightly.
The UK should give more money so that Oxfam leaders can pay for more prostitutes in the areas they're claiming to help.
In the dismal reality, the response to the revelations about Oxfam staff enjoying “Caligula-style” orgies with prostitutes in the earthquake-ravaged Haiti of 2011, and similarly revolting claims about abusers and paedophiles employed by other charities, is the traditional jerking of the knee.
The current International Development Secretary, Penny Mordaunt, threatens to withdraw Oxfam funding. Her predecessor, Priti Patel, shrilly demands it.
Yes, pulling funding from a charity that spent money on prostitutes, some possibly underage, is one of those knee jerk reactions.
You can almost feel the warmth radiating from the middle-class, middle-aged snug bars of the Home Counties, where the thought of a rich country sending 0.7 per cent of its GDP to needy foreigners curdles the tonic in the G&Ts.
It's not needy foreigners, but wealthy leftists who get the money.
Such characters lead deliberately sheltered lives, so we probably ought not be too hard on them for being shocked – shocked! – by the exposes about Oxfam, Save the Children and the rest.
If you're shocked that lefty charities spend the money on hiring prostitutes in Haiti, you're a naive prude. And a racist.
Yet beyond those all-white enclaves of the 1950s where they shiver in fear of being “swamped” by the dark skinned,
... there you go. Ignore racially exploitative misbehavior by the left or you're a racist.
