Ever wonder why 21st century socialism is winning so many hearts and minds in Latrine America?

Here is a piece of the puzzle.

Barbarians.

Chances are that all of these ignoble savages voted for Dilma Rouseff and Luiz Lula da Silva.  And they would most probably vote for the Castro brothers and Vlad the Impaler too, if given the chance.

Beheaded and dismembered soccer referee

Beheaded and dismembered soccer referee

Fom the Daily Mail (UK), genius purveyor of the lowest of the low:

Brazilian soccer referee beheaded by angry fans who put his head on a stake after he stabbed player

A soccer referee in Brazil was gruesomely quartered and beheaded after he fatally stabbed a player on the field during a match.

The match took place June 30 at Pius XII stadium in Maranhao, northeastern Brazil.

According to Correio24horas, 30-year-old player Josenir dos Santos Abreu approached the 20-year-old referee, Octavio da Silva Catanhede Jordan, to argue a call.The two couldn't come to terms so Catanhede Jordan told the player to leave the field.

Santos Abreu refused and the argument turned heated when the referee allegedly pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed Santos Abreu multiple times.

The player died en route to the hospital. Fans outraged by the stabbing - believed to be the player's friends and family - stormed the pitch and cornered Catanhede Jordan.

The mob showed no mercy as they quartered and decapitated the referee and then placed his head on a stake.

A video shows the damage the mob did to Catanhede Jordan, but it is exceptionally graphic.

So far police in Santa Ines, Maranhao have arrested one man, 27-year-old Luis Moraes Souza, in relation to the gruesome crime - but may be looking for two other men named 'Chiquinho' and 'Pirolo' according to a few other Brazilian blogs.

Valter Costa, police chief of Santa Ines, released a statement about the investigation.

'Reports of witnesses have indicated some people that were in place at the time of the fact,' he said. 'We will identify and hold accountable all those involved. A crime will never justify another. Actions like this do not collaborate with the legality of a state law.'
