The Left Wing Politics of Hurricanes Gustav and Katrina

September 1, 2008

Do hurricanes have political affiliations?  Is Hurricane Gustav a Democrat?

Some liberals clearly think so.

Take Michael Moore (PLEASE!!!):

“I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven,” Moore said. “To just have it planned at the same time, that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for Day One of the Republican convention, up in the Twin Cities, at the top of the Mississippi River.”

Michael Moore isn’t just some far-left loon celebrity like Barbara Streisand; liberals and Democrats throw good money away to hear what Moore says about the issues.

And it’s not just left-wing nutjob idiot propagandists.  Former Democratic National Committee Chairman (I think of current DNC chair Howard Dean and ask myself, ‘what do they put in these guys’ Kool-Aid?‘) Don Fowler thought he was ever so witty when he said:

The timing, at least as it appears now, is that it’ll be there on Monday. That just demonstrates God is on our side.”

He’s right that Hurricane Gustav will reach landfall Monday.  He’s probably wrong about every other thought he ever had in his life, but he’s right about that one.

Hurricane Katrina killed 1600 people.  Ha ha ha.  Pretty damn funny, guys.  You want another massive death toll just to put a damper on the Republican Convention, do you?

Both men apologized when they realized how evil they sounded, saying they sincerely hoped nobody got hurt.  They both failed to make note of the little detail of the $43.625 billion in damage Hurricane Katrina caused in 2005 – and the billions of dollars the storm cost taxpayers since.

Damn.  I hope the joke doesn’t sound so funny now.

You want to know the really despicable thing?  Throughout the Democratic National Convention (you know, that pile of hot air in Denver last week?), Hurricane Katrina was mentioned over and over and over again.

Natural disasters used to be viewed as, well, natural disasters.  But since the Democratic Party warped into the Demagogue Party, they have become political fodder for the herds of liberal swine to gluttonously gulp down.  The shrill, hysterical narrative: It was all Bush – and his terrible failure of leadership – that caused all this.

As usual, Democrats are either wrong, or lying, or wrong and lying.

First of all, as a Wall Street Journal article pointed out: (more…)
