Info Meme of the Week: Brotherhood of Evil Mutants Pt Two – Betsy DeVos

Editor’s note: yesterday, we began an Info Meme series designed to expose the utterly fucking repugnant human beings Donald Trump is bringing into the US government as members of his cabinet; a group I like to call “the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.” Although he has only just begun to form his official government, it’s fair to say that President-elect is thus far packing his staff with bigots, racists, Islamophobes and fundamentalist nutjobs; apparently Trump is determined to leave no white nationalist or radical “libertarian” behind in his quest to make America a fucking Ayn Rand novel again!

Of course the complacent corporate media is largely disinterested in telling you precisely who these fundie fascist freaks are; preferring instead to focus on the “bold new conservative provocateurs on the right” who are otherwise known as “actual fucking neo-Nazis” to anyone with a brain. As regular readers of this website know, this appalling lack of courage by at least the more mainstream aspects of corporate media is regarded as a personal insult around here; thus, in the interests of public knowledge and our never-ending quest to expose government fuckery, we’re memeing the shit out of each of Trump’s confirmed cabinet hires as he makes them – to help expose what kind of god fucking awful pieces of human refuse the President-elect is now turning the country over to between business meetings that represent a clear conflict of interest in their own right.

For those unfamiliar with the format; the Info Meme of the Week is a semi-regular feature where we a look at one issue, scandal or even person largely being misreported in the media in the form of a single, easy-to-share meme that’s backed up by a few verifiable sources underneath the photo. No rants, speeches or explanations required – just the gory, cursed facts, in one quick snapshot you can show moronic, bougie liberals who’re still avoiding personal responsibility for handing the country over to a pack of psychopaths by insisting you “give Trump a chance.”

Yesterday, we started off our carnival of carnivores by looking at unhinged Islamophobe National Security Advisor Michael Flynn; today we’ll be looking at Trump’s newly minted Secretary of Education and low-key fundie far-right freakjob, Betsy DeVos – a woman who clearly has never met a broke student she didn’t want to fleece out of his or her government guaranteed education funding:

Clearly, the female of the “Evil Mutant” species can be deadlier than the male; Betsy is precisely the kind of greedy, anti-regulation and pro-privatization nightmare freak that has turned states like Michigan into the post-apocalyptic hellhole know derisively as Zombieland – and now, she’s been tapped by swine emperor Trump to run the entire federal education system; which seems more than a little bit like hiring a half-starved fucking dingo to babysit your toddler.

Note: Please be reminded that if you’re having trouble reading this Info Meme, you can simply right click on the picture and select “view this image” to pop out a larger version. Additionally, please feel free to post this meme anywhere you like and please remember that you can provide sources for skeptical observers and willfully obtuse liberals who insist we aren’t about to go right over the goddamn cliff as a nation, by linking them back to this post.

Despite all of the media whitewashing, it has now become objectively clear that Donald Trump’s government will be a stupefying, nightmare-fueled bled of corruption, hatred and greed that may well represent an existential threat to not only the United States, but indeed the entire world. This is no longer about the election and for better or for worse, it is now absolutely vital that people know who these monsters are and what they plan to do – if we are to have any hope of stopping them.

Stay strong, fight nationalism and Swing Heil baby.
