Liberalism explained: Dementor Wasps

I have said repeatedly that Liberals are cockroaches.

Nasty beings that do most of their devilishment in the cloak of darkness, then scurrying when the light is shined on them.

Well, part of my theory may have been validated, as there is a wasp that makes “passive zombies” of cockroaches.

According to the Washington Post,

Dementor wasps inject venom into cockroach prey, right in the belly, rendering it a “passive zombie,” according to a new report from the World Wildlife Fund. The report details 139 new species discovered in the Greater Mekong region during 2014.

“Cockroach wasp venom blocks receptors of the neurotransmitter octopamine, which is involved in the initiation of spontaneous movement,” according to the report. “With this blocked, the cockroach is still capable of movement, but is unable to direct its own body. Once the cockroach has lost control, the wasp drags its stupefied prey by the antennae to a safe shelter to devour it.”

In the case of the human cockroaches, there is no need to eat them, as they devour themselves.
