The U.S. economy is approaching recession levels.
Many Americans aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from.
But Joe Biden is spending millions of taxpayer dollars on a fight club for hamsters.
Wasteful government spending on ridiculous programs is nothing new.
Rand Paul highlights some of the worst every year.
Shrimp on treadmills, cocaine for squirrels, paying farmers not to grow crops while millions starve.
It’s government business as usual.
And Joe Biden is no different. In fact, he’s worse.
Because while Americans are trying to figure out how they’re going to pay for a gallon of gas, or buy formula for their babies, Joe Biden is using taxpayer dollars to pay for hamster fight clubs.
You read that right.
Now, no one in the government talks about this because -the first rule of Hamster Fight Club is – you don’t talk about Hamster Fight Club! (Hey, you knew that was coming.).
But seriously, this speaks directly to the overwhelming attitude of leftists and government bureaucrats who like wasting taxpayer money while hard-working lower and middle-class families struggle to put food on the table and keep the lights on in their homes.
Nonprofit watchdog group “White Coat Waste” reports that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) spent over $1.5 million in tax dollars on this hamster program.
And while $1.5 million seems like a small amount for government spending, when you start counting every one of these kinds of programs, the price tag and inflationary impact adds up quickly.
Now, the idea of a hamster fight club sounds ridiculous and something you’d expect to see on TikTok, but the reality of this program is much darker and crueler.
“White Coat Waste” reports the following:
“First, they genetically engineered hamsters, then they drilled into their skulls, and finally, they pitted the hamsters against one another in staged, scored fights.”
These hamsters exhibited aggressive behaviors against the other non-engineered hamsters such as chasing, biting, and pinning.
Justin Goodman, senior vice president of White Coat Waste, further described the depraved nature of the hamster fight club experiment:
“Hacking hamsters’ brains to turn them into hyper-aggressive bullies and watching them violently beat up docile hamsters in scored cage matches is deeply disturbing, irrelevant to human health, and a complete waste of taxpayer dollars.”
Following these so-called “matches,” the injured hamsters were not given any pain management because researchers believed doing so would “defeat the purpose of the research.”
Make no mistake about it, this is taxpayer-funded animal abuse, plain and simple.
So where are all the animal rights’ activists at?
Apparently they’re off celebrating ‘Pride Month’ and plotting to kill another Supreme Court Justice all in the name of green, transgender, no-more-wire-hangers something or another.
