Rednecks die, no one cries

Theological question: Would Jesus host a party for the Romans and serve them gourmet food, while the population of Nazareth languished and died under the weight of an almost unprecedented natural disaster?

In the wake of the news slowly filtering out of Kentucky and the Appalachian/Ozark region of our nation that is suffering from the worst ice storm in memory, perhaps it's appropriate to ask the whereabouts of our own Savior. Turns out he's in Washington DC, basking in a toasty-warm Oval Office, serving the finest in gourmet food to the Democrat leadership, and preparing a deluxe Superbowl party for tonight.

In other words, he's not moving mountains to alleviate the suffering of those who are freezing and dying in Kentucky. Neither, apparently, is FEMA. The MSM is also largely a no-show. And Hollywood? Fuggetaboutit. Why?

I'm going to offer an explanation -- it's just a theory but it's pretty easy to follow.

This map shows the net gains picked up during the 2008 Presidential election, Democrats in blue and Republicans in red. Notice where the red areas are located?

ElectionDiff2008.jpg

Now should we conclude that Democrats hate McCain voters and have no remorse over seeing them freeze and die? If the sides were switched, you can bet your bippy that Hollywood liberals, the mainstream media, and Congressional Democrats would be showing the same map and going berserk ... just like they did 3 1/2 years ago an a city called New Orleans.

Rick Moran doesn't mince words: "It's got to be that Obama hates white people and wants them to die!"

The Anchoress says, "Heck of a job, Barry." She also has the go-to roundup of news links and conservative blogger reactions, as well as (always) an even-handed set of observations.

The MSM's response to all this so far reminds me of Ollie's weather forecast on Family Guy: "It's cold!"

Adrian Browne:

Obama has actually talked quite a bit about the need for infrastructure improvement and creating a better electrical grid so that situations like this can be avoided. It's long term planning AND SPENDING that everyone should support.

This global cooling is certainly a problem. Maybe the Dimicrats can pass a law ordering Mr. Sun to increase its output to where it was in 1982-1998 during "Global Warming."

Tpypical right-wing hate drival and typically inaccurate.

Beshear declared State of Emergency Tuesday afternoon. Obama on Friday. There are currently both FEMA and National Guard personnel providing disaster assistance on the ground. Futher power is being steadily, if not rapidly, restored. There are no bodies decaying in the streets. There are no people crowded in unsanitary shelters, littered with corpses. Your comparison is apples to oranges - invalid.

Moreover, if indeed you are truly concerned about the people suffering in Kentucky, why are you using their plight to perpetuate false racism and divisiness. Nobody ever tell you a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link? We're all in this together. Like it not, if Obama fail, America fails. We don't have time for petty politicized battles. Our failure now could lead our grandchildren to grow up in a virtual 3rd world country.

MPR:

If Obamalala loses, America wins. I am seeing signs that Republicans are beginning to realize that. If you're waiting for the MSM to criticize Obamalala it will be a long wait.

April McCabe:

The AP article linked to in the blog says FEMA is a no-show, Michelle Roberts.

Just another typical black ilLiberal racist, and just like your ilLiberal white counterparts, you're either illiterate or dishonest. Or a combination of both.

By the way, if Obamao succeeds, America fails. If you want a socialist country that provides you with a Nanny Government and a welfare check every month, move to one.

America, love it or leave, Michelle.

Second of all, the conditions during Katrina were the fault of the people who sat around unable to get off their black butts without some kind of assistance from the government, and the fault of the quota politicians they elected. They had ample warning, and didn't prepare. If you want a black politician, wonderful. You get what you vote for.

You just voted for a Marxist black president, one in a long line of the likes of Ray "This is sure Flub'Rd" Nagin, Marion "Crack Smokin" Berry, Cynthia "I'm Gonna Throw Something If I Show Up" McKinney, Cold Cash Jefferson, Detroit's own Kwame "too many scandals for a nickname" Kllpatrick..actually this would be easier if I were listing good black politicians...

Um, hmmm..can't think of any off the top of my head.

While I'm certainly not a fan of Obama, I've got to raise the BS flag.

One of the FEMA staging areas that has sprouted up is right on the southern edge of Fort Campbell, KY. Even at 0100 this morning, there was a significant amount of traffic in and out of the area, including industrial-sized generators and heavy equipment.

kevino:

Team Obama doesn't get high marks for the responsiveness, and the hypocrisy on display is breathtaking. While the country is suffering and people in Appalachia are dying, the White House is eating yagyu steak and the Democrats are gorging themselves on pork.

But the real story hrer is the MSM. Americans are dying, and the story is not being widely reported. I won't say that the MSM doesn't care what happens to fly-over country. The fact is that they probably hope more rednecks die. As an Obama voter told me this fall, "I hate the South". The other MSM motive at work is that the lack of concern expressed by the Obama administration is an embarrassment, therefore the MSM has little interest is doing stories about it.

The MSM has become one of the Democratic Party's most important constituents, and this doesn't serve the Republic at all.

Mac Lorry:

The real reason the MSM is not covering this disaster is because it undermines the AGW scam. You know, the one the stimulus bill earmarks millions to for those doing "correct" science.

In the war against progress and freedom those in Kentucky are just collateral damage.

I am going to hazard a guess - no link, just personal opinion: Red State voters on the whole tend to be more self-reliant than Blue State voters. No screaming/whining, no story.

Palinsevil,

I think the real comparison is those working their way out of a problem versus the poor disenfranchised who sit on their lazy fat asses whining about no one coming to their rescue.

Baron Von Ottomatic:

I got an e-mail this week that went something like this:

How is it that two million people can make it in and out of Washington DC in a day for Obama's inauguraton; but 200,000 people couldn't make it out of New Orleans before Katrina with four days notice?

Funny.

One story I heard was that some sort of welfare checks always come on the first of the month and lots of folks didn't leave because they were waiting for their monthly "stimulus" to arrive...

Oh look... a shiney bright object!

That aside nitwit, Barack Hussein Obama's spending targeted for elec grid improvement has little to nothing to do with those strange little wires leading to your and everyone elses homes.

You know those things that tumble to the ground, along with power poles, during massive ice storms.

Not only that, Marc, but a better electrical grid is not going to help people who need help NOW. Imagine the additional grief George W. Bush would have received if his response to Katrina was to to say, "don't worry, we're working on better levees for future storms."

sarahconnor2:

So, Michelle Roberts,

You stated, "Nobody ever tell you a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link? We're all in this together. Like it not, if Obama fail, America fails. We don't have time for petty politicized battles."

Based on this philosophy, I'm assuming you exhibited this same stance towards President Bush so as to avoid "petty politicized battles"?

BeenThere:

Palin-hater, have you ever been in an ice storm? I didn't think so. There's the same lack of necessitities such as drinking water, food, waste facilities plus the danger of hypothermia, or to spell it out for you, loss of life or limb.

You should be ashamed to be flaunting your hypocristy, ignorance and callousness.

Scarecrow Person:

#15 (DaveD) Actually, Red states are more reliant on the government than their Blue counterparts. (http://www.taxfoundation.org/research/show/22685.html, http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2004/09/red_states_feed.html) But don't let facts get in the way.
#16 Because Biloxi and Gulfport, while devastated more immediately by the storm, did not have floodwaters in about a 400 sq mile area for over a week like the New Orleans metro area had, and people weren't stranded with no way to get out afterwards.
#18 (Baron Von Ottomatic) I got the same email, except mine said 2 million niggers. And of course, they always get the number of days wrong, as Katrina was not forecast to hit New Orleans directly until 2 days prior, and they ignore that it was the largest and most successful large scale evacuation in the history of the US with almost 90% of the people leaving the metro New Orleans area.

It is kind of sad that people would rather compare the suffering of people in catastrophes and decide who was worse or who "deserved it" more rather than buck up and help the people affected or stay the F out of the way of the people who are trying to help.

Marc:

palinisevil - "So let me get my head around this logic. You're comparing a type 5 hurricane to an icestorm for political reasons? I mean i know some can make anything fit where their political agenda is concerned, but this is really grasping for straws."

Cute moniker BTW. If by "cute" you mean partisan hack.

First of all use the correct terminology, hurricanes are classified by category, not "type."

Secondly Katrina wasn't anything close to a cat 5 as it was first widely reported to be a cat 4 but later analysis placed it at cat 3 and very possibly a cat 1 storm.

Facts be damned right, or were you just "grasping at straws?"

And finally, if you fail to grasp the idea an ice storm can't be devastating, well... get a clue.
