Just when you thought that Joe Biden’s contempt for flyover states couldn’t be more obvious, he’s started setting up drug gear vending machines in rural Appalachian areas with taxpayer money. The vending machines have heroin syringes and other handy aids for destroying your life with opioids.
Earlier this year, Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services was caught distributing free crack pipes to crack addicts in urban areas. That’s a euphemism for “giving crack pipes to black people and maybe Hunter Biden, too.” Moving on from the cities, Biden now seems determined to hammer more nails into the coffin of middle America with this new drug paraphernalia giveaway.
During President Donald Trump’s last year in office – 2020, when COVID was first active by the way – there were 75,673 drug overdose deaths according to the CDC. Those 75,673 deaths are horrifying, especially when you consider that America had 58,220 casualties during the entire Vietnam War. During Joe Biden’s first year in office – 2021 – there were 100,306 drug overdose deaths, primarily from heroin, synthetic opioids like fentanyl, and methamphetamines.
In other words, drug ODs skyrocketed by 28.5% the first year that Joe Biden was in office. In case you’ve stopped keeping score, that was the year that Biden first forced the Border Patrol to stop enforcing our southern border entirely. Under new instructions, the Border Patrol was suddenly allowing in tens of thousands of illegals who were (and are) in fact drug mules. The fentanyl and other drugs that are murdering Americans, with the tacit permission of Joe Biden, are being carried in by the illegal alien hordes that Biden refuses to arrest.
Biden is allowing the National Institutes of Health to spend $3.8 million of your taxpayer dollars to deploy drug gear vending machines in rural parts of Kentucky. This is the literal heart of the opioid epidemic in America. If there’s one place in America where you would want to go out of your way to NOT encourage more drug use, it would be rural Kentucky. Followed by rural Tennessee, rural Virginia, and other rural parts of other red states, which are all being devastated by opioids.
The NIH says that the Joe Biden Drug Paraphernalia Vending Machines™ for rural Kentucky are designed to “reduce stigmas” that drug addicts might feel if they have to go get their drug paraphernalia from an in-person clinic. Yeah. Because that’s the priority.
More than 100,000 people are dying from ODs annually, and we have fentanyl zombies pooping on the sidewalks of every American city with a population of over 35,000. So, the feelings of drug addicts is the important thing. We wouldn’t want to stigmatize these people!
So, exactly what sorts of supplies has Joe Biden spent your tax dollars on in order to stock these hobo vending machines? Well, let’s see.
Heroin needles. Lots of heroin needles. Because you need lots of those to help heroin users avoid the stigma of being heroin users.
Naloxone. That’s a drug that blocks opiate receptors in the nervous system. It’s a drug that you give to a fentanyl zombie, when said fentanyl zombie is dying from an overdose of fentanyl. You wouldn’t want doctors and nurses to have the naloxone that’s needed to prevent overdoses. Instead, you want that drug in the hands of drug addicts, so they won’t feel stigmatized or embarrassed by their shabby, filthy lifestyles.
The vending machines also contain fentanyl test strips, which are used as a test to determine whether you have fentanyl in your system. I’m not sure how giving drug testing kits to fentanyl addicts makes them feel less stigmatized, so I guess we’ll just have to take Joe Biden’s word for that.
In the meantime, what’s wrong with stigmatizing people for their bad behavior? When did public shaming go out the window? Wouldn’t you much rather live in a country where Americans can tell fentanyl hoboes just how shameful and embarrassing they are? And in turn, maybe some of those hobo fentanyl junkies would stop being users. Well, we can’t do that. We’re too busy handing out crack pipes and heroin needles to junkies on Joe Biden’s watch.
