Video of the Week – November 28, 2020

There’s something about the dignity and formality of elected officials disintegrating when tensions explode into chaos and madness.  Such was the scene on Friday, November 27, when lawmakers in Taiwan got into fist fights and threw pig entrails at each other over a soon-to-be enacted policy that would allow imports of U.S. pork and beef.  Premier Su Tseng-Chang was due to give a regularly scheduled policy report to lawmakers on Friday morning about the pork policy when opposition party lawmakers from the Nationalist party, also known as the KMT, blocked his attempt to speak by dumping bags of pig organs.  Legislators from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party attempted to stop them, resulting in the brawl.

This may be a Y chromosome thing, Dear Readers, but I’d almost like to see something similar in either chamber of the U.S. Congress.  Minus the pig parts, of course.  I mean, what a waste!
