More “Nuanced” European Morality

Ah, Europe! That shining lamp of purity, pinnacle of human justice and source of inspiration to freedom loving people the world over

More damning details are emerging from the East German STASI records documenting the deals made between Swedish furniture giant IKEA and the Castro dictatorship in Cuba. Apparently, in addition to contracting with the dictatorship for slave labor, IKEA was also looking to cash in on Cuba’s historical patrimony, which the Cuban regime stole from private citizens after taking power in 1959.

    I never did shop at IKEA. And now I never will.

    Maybe IKEA didn’t want to pay its fair share of Swedish taxes. Filthy elitists.

    Hm. That explains the horrible meatballs and shoddy workmanship. They got socialism all over everything. Has Ozzie Guillen been told?

    And quipping aside, what a horrible thing to do – farm your personal enemies as slave labor to a foreign power. Hell, even criminals on chain gangs have more dignity than that. They were held accountable for actual crimes against others and make retribution in part by paving and cleaning their own state’s highways. They’re actually doing time they earned, not just being punished for being a librarian or a poet.

    The more I see what socialists enjoy doing, and the more the rank and file apologize for such things, the more my dismay at all these wannabe apparatchiks installed as fuedal lords over us.
