#MAGA: South Carolina Hosts Latest Amtrak Disaster, At Least 2 Dead, 115 Injured

While our leaders, including the GOD EMPEROR Himself, busy themselves with prostration to Israel, warmongering against Syria and Russia, and slashing the health benefits of poor Whites in Appalachia, our infrastructure continues to fall apart.

Through a combination of employed diversities, selfish ideas of “fiscal conservatism,” and just plain neglect, we now rank as a nation that is nothing more than a laughing stock for the rest of the world – including the typically-rigid East Asians.

At least they don’t currently suffer from massive train crashes on a now-monthly basis.

ABC News:

At least 2 people are dead and at least another 70 injured after an Amtrak passenger train collided with a freight train in South Carolina early Sunday morning, officials said.

The two deaths occurred in the Amtrak train, not the freight train, Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher confirmed.

Injuries ranged from minor cuts to broken bones, a spokesman for the South Carolina Emergency Management Division told CNN.

People going to visit their relatives via an overpriced and antiquated train end up with slashed faces and broken bones – somewhere a very Happy Merchant is rubbing his clawed hands in glee.

Amtrak initially said in a statement, “Amtrak Train 91, operating between New York and Miami, came in contact with a CSX freight train at around 2:35 am in Cayce, South Carolina.”

The statement continued, “The lead engine derailed, as well as some passenger cars. There were 8 crew members and approximately 139 passengers, with injuries reported. Local authorities are on the scene responding. More information will be provided as available.”

My guess (note that I’m just going on past incidents here) is that somebody was either under the influence of drink/drugs, or under the influence of inferior genetics.

I suppose we could be dealing with tracks that were falling apart as well – a combination of the two factors is probably the safest bet here.

And don’t think that anything is actually going to get done following this third disaster in fifty days – the GOP is too focused on prison reform and entitlement cuts to dare to spend the shekels needed to bring this country back from the brink of Third-World status.

  1. I’d be surprised if Asians even recognize an Amtrak train, it might as well be a horse and buggy, they have ultra modern maglev trains that go 200mph+ which don’t even touch the track

    • Most of the trains in China are coal burning steam engines. The modern stuff is strictly limited, as usual.

      We don’t need passenger trains in the south, although Southern Railroad ran profit making passenger service until forced, by the US government, to become part of Amtrak. The government hated them making a profit when the rest of Amtrak couldn’t.

      Most of the passenger service is used by the Yankee, that is, those who hate us. Why would we want to subsidize them?

      Frankly, I haven’t ridden on a train as a paying passenger since 1967, nor an airliner since 2005. I have no plans to do either again as long as TSA (Thousands Standing Around) is in airports and taxes subsidize rail passenger service.

  2. I’ve only taken AMTRAK twice since its inception back in 1971. Both times, to put it bluntly, sucked. I remember the passenger train trips I took back in the late 1950’s & there was is no comparison. It was a better era for just about everything.

  3. “they have ultra modern maglev trains that go 200mph+ which don’t even touch the track”

    Developed and designed by Siemans of Germany. ( the Chinese jewed the Germans and didn’t pay for it).

  4. Anyone remember the 1993 Big Bayou Canot train disaster?
    Affirmative action at work.
    Over 50 died an inferno death and 100 seriously injured, thanks to an orc too stupid to see the radar display in front of his face.

  5. Amtrak is a huge, gaping money pit with little to show for it. Amtrak should be abolished and never replaced. It’s another example of government boondoggle for which no method of determining value exists because it’s run by government.

    Goods and services MUST be determined by the market. No market for a product, it goes away, as it should.

    As a health care provider I charge $5x.xx per hour for my services. Take it or leave it. The same must apply across the board.

  6. The identities of the engineers of the trains that crashed in Virginia and Washington state have still not been identified.

  7. These are the kind of railroad accidents that used to happen in the 1830s and 40s, before the invention of the telegraph and the air-brake. There is no excuse for such accidents now.
