Garbage Wars - The Shape Of Things To Come

Greece, according to Standard & Poors, is now in selective default. That is, it's bankrupt. Like any good statist country where the government is responsible for almost everything and politics rules over all, government budget cuts are leading to lots of protests. Citizens are fighting with each other like starving dogs over an ever-shrinking government food dish. Dig this.
The most striking example of this absurdity is the situation at the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, where garbage has been piling up all over the campus for the past 10 weeks. Only Aristophanes could have come up with such a great metaphor for Greek exceptionalism. A labor dispute between workers and the company with the contract for cleaning the university resulted in workers taking over the administration building, garbage piling up out of control, volunteers who tried to clean up being attacked by students supporting the strikers (and the dumping on campus of whatever garbage had been collected), the principal first being with the strikers then calling in police, police raiding the university, clearing the administration building, the workers returning and blocking entrance to the building, and so on.
This is what it looks like.


Here in the US, we've got the same cauldron brewing, but ours is larded up with racial poisons not available to the monocultural Greeks. Dig this.


Given the Democrats' and MSM's fixation on race, just what is the garbage strike (or equivalent fight for declining funds) going to look like when it comes here?

"Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president."

To quote one of the sing-song bystanders in that video, "Mmm-hmm!"

Remember, you can't have an us without a them.
