The SIX dumbest and most absurd stories of 2018
The SIX dumbest and most absurd stories of 2018 by Simon Black – Sovereign Man
Every week we send out an alert to our premium subscribers highlighting important news that often goes overlooked…
We scour through recent court cases, laws moving through congress, whispers in the government and various, international news sites to find the latest things happening that could infringe upon your freedom… or that just make us laugh and cringe due to the never-ending stupidity of governments around the world.
If we had to pick one, dominant trend for 2018, it would be the rise of the “snowflake.”
It seems last year, everyone was a victim… and if you had an opinion on anything, you risked “triggering” huge amounts of people who would then retaliate your horrible offense with a social-media lambast.
We’ve compiled six of the most ridiculous stories we encountered in 2018.
Ironically, while humor seems to be dead in greater society, these stories are damn hilarious, and some are outright absurd.
Let’s get started…
1. Is Vegan a religion?
A British vegan man expressed concerns that the company he worked for invested money from its pension funds in non-vegan companies.
Then he was fired.
He sued, and now, a British court will decide if vegans should have protection, just like religions, for their beliefs.
If the court rules in his favor, British vegans will be protected by law against workplace discrimination based on their “beliefs.”
The further we go on with this whiny, victim mentality trend, the more claims anyone could have to consider themselves discriminated against.
Fired for being too short, old, fat, bald or sexy.
The company said they didn’t fire him because he’s a vegan…
You know, there’s always the chance he’s just an incompetent dolt.
2. Climate Activists did only what was necessary to save us all
If you broke into a home to save a child from a raging fire, you probably wouldn’t face any criminal charges.
But if you did, you could use the “necessity defense.” It was necessary to break the law to save the child. The emergency made the law unnecessary under the circumstances.
Climate activists tried to use that same defense.
They trespassed on private property and tampered with an oil pipeline. The emergency they say is global warming.
Using the emergency shut off valve on the pipeline was necessary to stop climate change, they argued.
An appeals court agreed and said the activists could use the “necessity” defense.
But the tactic never got tested in court.
In October, charges were suddenly dropped against the activists. This actually upset some activists who hoped that the case would set a precedent for future “necessity defenses.”
Just cutting the carbon footprint. It’s an emergency.
So luckily they haven’t yet legalized destroying cars, raising cattle, cutting power lines, and murdering countless people in the name of stopping climate change.
3. Scotland Cracks Down on the Right to Peel Potatoes
Things might be different if William Wallace had prevailed…
Scottish Police arrested a man for possession of a dangerous weapon in public. He was carrying a potato peeler.
