VOICE OF THE LEFT
Want to know just how hateful the Left really are? Well, here's two great examples. The first is from Randi Rhodes from DeadAir America. Talking about the victims of hurricane Katrina.
"This President is never gonna do the right thing. I think somewhere
deep down inside him he takes a lot of joy about losing people, if he
thinks they vote Democrat or if he thinks they're poor, or if he thinks
they're in a blue state, whatever his reasons are not to rescue those
people who are planning for their safety."
Then we have this from popular Left-wing blog called Bradblog.
"I'm not going to post the piece I started to write.

My original reaction to the Katrina catastrophe was going to be: "NOT
ONE DIME."

For an hour or so, I contemplated the idea of turning it into a
crusade: No-one in the blue states (where the money is) should give one
dime of aid to the victims of this hurricane, which devastated
Bush-friendly regions.

Why did I flirt with such a callous attitude?

Because it should be obvious to all that this tragedy was not just an
act of God. Dubya and his diety conspired to transform mere disaster
into an unprecedented mega-catastrophe. ...

So why was I thinking of starting a movement against giving aid to the
stricken areas?

Because these are red states. They voted for Bush. These ninnies
obviously wanted these policies, and they deserve to live with the
consequences of their votes.

A large part of me still believes that many of these W-worshipping
numbskulls deserve to suffer and to die. They brought it on themselves.
Let them look to Jayzuss for aid: It's time they stopped leeching off
the more productive blue staters.

(Californians stupidly give much more to the federal government than we
receive from it; the money flows in a very different direction in the
red states.)

So, at least, I started to write. But then (to paraphrase the old song)
I thought I'd better think it out again.

Many of the victims, the ones who have suffered the most, are poor. The
hardest hit were the blue state folk living among the red state maniacs.
New Orleans, we should note, went heavily for Kerry.

And that's why we must help. Although it was very tempting to say
otherwise.

But let us make one thing clear: We WILL politicize this issue."
I think Randi Rhodes got the target wrong. It seems it's the Left who want people to suffer and die.
Thanks John.

*GASP!*

Imagine my shock and horror that someone like John (or in this case LGF) would completely cut and paste to take things out of context!

:O

For crying out loud - the hurricane should have NOTHING to do with politics, but people lending a hand to others in need!

Well; then Jake; what is the context we are missing?? Since I do not listen to that radio show; maybe you can tell us what she really meant; because those are quotes.

Greta, you're right. Politics shouldn't factor into a natural disaster.

Unfortunately there's also the problem that people who make bad decisions shouldn't always have someone to dive in and save them from themselves.
Obviously not everyone in New Orleans voted for Bush, but it was their collective decisions that brought stupid internal policies into play.

However, I'm of the opinion that having a piece of the 3rd world in the 1st world is more than enough of a wakeup call.
