McQuaig Hails Chavez Legacy: Opossum Infestation Kills 17 Babies in Venezuelan Birth Ward #elxn42

Newly-minted parents at Venezuela’s Dr. Luis Razetti Hospital in Anzoátegui are denouncing its maternity ward for killing 17 babies in a week, the victims of sanitation so poor the ward is overtly inhabited by a swarm of opossums.

Parents say that ten babies were found dead between Saturday and Sunday morning, with another seven dying between Monday and Friday of the week before. All the parents were told their children died from a “bacterial infection”; most of the victims were premature, having been on average seven months into their gestation.

    Should have left the Opossums in the ground.

    I wonder what she thinks about Mulcair’s admiration of Margaret Thatcher. Which only goes to prove that Mulcair will say anything depending where he is.

    • He is an opportunist, just another careerist hack.

    She writes antiamerican books.

    • She hates the west.

        She seems as both the NDP daring of the hour and a full on whackjob.
        She must be bad news, as the CBC is running interference for her.

        This is like the Washington Post writing a piece about Hillary Clinton wiping her server hard drive “clean” and then the writer going on about how many lives “hygiene” saves every year.

          All the media long ago sold out for 20 pieces of silver.

            I don’t think they held out for anything close to that much.
            I say they did it for fee and are just backing their ideological pals.
            Truth is their enemy.

  • She loves trannies as well (not sure if Chavez would approve that).

  • David Murrell

    The idea of an opossum infection is the stuff of nightnares.

    So did the babies die because the opossums killed them or because the opossums spread disease? Or because the opossums chewed through critical equipment?

      I have some experience with this being from NZ and a R.N. Opossums carry a host of really bad viruses. However, having preems in proximity is truly tragic. Those poor children and parents.

      Maybe they learned from the opossums more than they could ever learn from socialists,and are only playing dead until sanity returns to their land.
