A sad comparison, and a republican that republicans can be proud of.

Some of us black folks are upset at the GOP and their lemmings for comparing the failed roll out of Obamacare to Hurricane Katrina.

It's appalling that they would do such a thing, but it's understandable.

Katrina was a poor and brown people tragedy; the suffering that those people went through was not viewed as real suffering by some folks in the majority. Rather, it was a political problem for George Bush.

It's easy to trivialize the suffering of those people down in New Orleans. It might as well have been a typhoon in the Philippines. Most Americans just didn't relate.

So now, here we are years later, comparing glitches in a computer software to one of the greatest natural disasters in our nation's history.

"Just like Katrina, when the big problem President Bush had was diminishing the significance of what was happening, saying ‘Hey, way to go, Brownie,’—you had the president yesterday talking about glitches and kinks. This is bigger than glitches and kinks,” Fournier said.

“The one difference was Katrina was a storm, the health care law was Obama’s creation,” Wallace demurred. “I’m not defending my White House’s handling of Katrina, but it was a natural disaster. This was a disaster of Obama’s creation and imagination.”

Here is a shocker, I agree with Ed Shultz.

“Comparing the law that will save millions of lives in this country to these two dark events is absolutely despicable,” Schultz continued. “George W. Bush’s negligence in the handling of Katrina cost American lives. The botched war of choice, may I remind all Americans, in Iraq resulted in over 4,000 Americans being killed, for what?”

“Comparing these two horrible chapters in American history to a law that will save lives is truly unbelievable,” he concluded. [Source]

Nope, it's truly believable if you understand how the the mind of a wingnut works.

So anyway, I am glad to see that there was an arrest in that case where the Detroit homeowner shot and killed that young lady after she was trying to get help.

Dude is being charged with second- degree murder and manslaughter. He claims it was all just a tragic accident and he thought that she was breaking into his home, but, sadly for him, some things just weren't adding up.

Sorry Mr. Wafer, back in the day you would have probably gotten away with this, but not now. Not after Trayvon Martin and the national attention that his tragic killing received. Prosecutors nationwide are going to have to do due diligence from here on out.

Finally, speaking of prosecutors, I was speaking to a friend of mine today who ran against our DA here in Philly and got crushed. His name is Danny Alvarez, and he is a Latino republican in a town where republicans are down three to one in voter registration.

I met Danny a few years back when he worked as an ADA in my particular division of the courts. We would see each other from time to time and every now and then he would try a case in front of me.

He always struck me as good guy who really cared about the job that he was doing, and he did a good job doing it.

Danny only got 18 percent of the vote, but he had no money and he was outgunned from all sides. He never had a shot, but he gave it the old college try.

I respect him for that.

With what little resources he had he campaigned for every vote and wasn't afraid to go into housing projects and look people in the eye and tell them that he wanted their vote.

Other republicans need to take a page out of his book. If you want to reach black and Latino people and change the perception of your party you have to recruit candidates like Danny Alvarez.

"Wayne, A lot of these people didn't vote for me because they didn't know that they could vote for a republican candidate. I just hope I made them realize that there are other options out there."

Danny, I think you did.

Ignoring the warnings about New York City being attacked = 3,000 deaths so far. Lying about going to a war in Iraq which had nothing to do with the attack = 5,000 deaths so far. Ignoring the Hurricane Katrina warnings = 2,000 deaths. This doesn't count the wounded and non americans in the wars.
So the wingnuts want to scream every day that 4 deaths in Benghazi and the fact that The Health Care Law which is saving people is worst then the time when they couldn't govern. Bottom line is they talk a good game but they suck at governing.

“The one difference was Katrina was a storm, the health care law was Obama’s creation,”

Yes, exactly. Katrina was a natural disaster, Obamacare was planned.

The "Katrina Narrative" was 100% fraudulent from the moment it appeared, and remains 100% to this day.

And yet the Dems REFUSE to let it go. They went ALL IN with the Katrina Narrative.

Number of normal Americans who accept that narrartive or care about it?

Zero.

Hurricane Katrina was really a local/State issue, utterly un-handled by NO and LA ... we saw how Nagin fell apart on national TV.

GWB had to step in and handle things ... but there was "posse comitatus" standing in his way.

ObamaCare was never necessary and in fact was completely avoidable: do not propose the law.

ObamaCare could have been reviewed by the D's ... they apparently chose not to do so ... and they had a year or two ... more if they needed the time.

ObamaCare is stunning incompetence.

Such bullshit.

This country's primary purpose is to alleviate the suffering of poor brown people. The outpouring of assistance after Katrina was phenomenal.

Hundreds of white folks died in Mississippi and other parts of Louisiana; no one cared.

Instead, the fact that a storm affected black people, who were completely incapable of helping themselves or in acting with any kind of dignity or bravery in the face of adversity, was used as a political cudgel against a President whose reputation for protecting the American people had to be destroyed.

Never mind the fact the city and state were primarily responsible for disaster management, and had refused federal government involvement.

Natural disasters usually bring out the best in people, who help neighbors and strangers alike. For the black citizens of New Orleans — disaster was an excuse to loot, rob, rape and kill.

“I never thought that as a National Guardsman I would be shot at by other Americans,” said Spc. Philip Baccus of the 527th Engineer Battalion. “And I never thought I’d have to carry a rifle when on a hurricane relief mission. This is a disgrace.”

It was a disgrace, not the federal government's, but the black population of New Orleans.

The lesson of Katrina for white America was not George Bush's incompetence, but how black America responds to a crisis. It will not be soon forgotten.

"It's easy to trivialize the suffering of those people down in New Orleans. It might as well have been a typhoon in the Philippines. Most Americans just didn't relate."

Or Haiti for that matter. What's the common denominator? Dysfunctional people.

When disaster hits civilized people, like the tsunami in Japan, the earthquake in San Francisco, or the floods in Nashville, people come together and persevere. No looting or reversion to total mayhem.

When disaster strikes places like New Orleans or Haiti, the only real change is in the amount of outside aid that gets through. These places are permanent disasters.

Now the nations of the world are sending mega-tons of supplies to the ravaged people of the Philippines. One wonders how a nation of over 105 million people could remain so weak, disorganized, chaotic, divided, and completely dependent for so long? It seems a permanent condition.

Ask any servicemen (particularly in the U.S. Navy) about the culture. Ask anyone who has been to the Philippines, lived there, and knows anything about the society. It is quite tribal, for starters. It also tends to be without morals, and without the most basic concepts of family discipline. The children are not “raised,” but raise themselves. They are often abandoned, as “street children.” (But the style of child care in an actual “family” is often similar to abandonment. There is little or no discipline practiced. It’s simply not in the culture.) It’s all about gangs. Hordes of child gangs, youth gangs, child trafficking sex gangs, and more recently jihadist gangs, all seek order and power. There is no real central command. Never has been. A godless dictator shows up now and then, like Ferdinand Marcos, or his wife, but even they have never succeeded in unifying the Philippine people, or establishing any reliable order...

Assessing the Philippine society, one has to wander how much different the aftermath of Haiyan is from the normal life on innumerable hordes of homeless who live off city garbage dumps anyway. This is an outrage. The Philippines is an outrage. Pouring in multimillion dollar aid packages has to be some sort of staged act, some kind of world theatrics. Who is trying to impress whom? and why? None of this has any effect on the nature and condition of Philippine society. We should start with building codes, perhaps. Mass destruction and loss of life usually happen to areas of highly concentrated population in profoundly substandard living conditions. Yet no one seems to learn any lessons, no matter how many times repeated in the world.

There are a number of these post-Colonial, pseudo-nations out there that are perennially in the thrall of some disaster, requiring endless public and private aid. Why do we keep shoveling aid into these countries for absolutely no positive effect? Why should they even have independent governments? It's frankly criminal to tax such impoverished people to support whatever group of bandits call themselves their government at a given time. Anybody with enough intelligence and foresight that we'd actually want in charge is doubtless spending his time and energies trying to get the hell out.

It's not trivial, it's tragic.

Police arrested several people on looting charges in Nashville.

Three Hispanics and two white men were arrested in one neighborhood in one day.

But that aside

 comparing flooding in Nashville to Katrina is like comparing a barbecue fire to the San Francisco earthquake. You could "evacuate" in Nashville by walking less than a kilometer. Basic services were not interrupted. There were not large numbers of people cut off from the world for a week in apocalyptic conditions.

Second, the news media invented most of the stories about violence in New Orleans. For example, there were NO murders, NO rapes, and NO gun battles in the Super Dome. No rescue helicopters were shot at.

Sioux said...

"There you go folks, the fascist mindset in its entirety."---
--

Fascist? How about practical. If you are going to be paternalistic, you may as well do it in a way that actually benefits the objects of your paternalism.

There are areas of the world that cannot effectively manage a modern nation-state, to the great detriment of the inhabitants.

Haiti, the Phillipines, numerous other countries are all r-selected social and cultural disasters that are barely capable of self-governance and unable to sustain a decent life for their citizens. They should frankly be re-colonized, and they probably will be.

One place bucking this awful trend appears to be Rwanda, under the intelligent, forward-thinking and occasionally ruthless hand of Paul Kagame.

Absent a Kagame, enabling dysfunction through the intermittent application of aid alternating with the occasional bombing is just plane cruel. It's what Mencius has termed "callous altruism":

Another source of venal satisfaction is that when you help people, or appear to help them, you become a patron. You gain ownership over them. When you help overthrow the dictator of Egypt, for example, you become in a sense the new government of Egypt. The old dictator was a strongman - the new dictator is a weakman, because he owes his job to someone else. That someone is you - the collective you, but you nonetheless. If you decide you don't like your weakman, it's easy to find another weakman.

The fear that someone, somewhere, is exercising power over someone else, is one of the most basic cues of the callous-altruist mentality. Let me kill the master and free the slave. Out of altruism! Not sadism or ambition, of course. My hands are pure.

But slavery is simply dependence, and the default state of the newly "freed" slave is to be dependent on his new master - you, because you killed the old master. So your sadism itch is scratched, because you get to kill; and your ambition itch is scratched, because you become a slavemaster.

(A slavemaster? You may not tell your dependent what to do all day. But if you pay him to do nothing, he is still your slave - you may not ask him to work today, but you could tomorrow. He would have to obey your commands or starve. In other words, he's a slave. And of course, there's one thing you've surely bought - his vote.)


It is estimated that up to a quarter of the freed slaves died from disease within 10 years of being granted their freedom. But it sure felt good.

Handing billions of dollars to the criminals who run places like Haiti only means the losses are bigger at the next earthquake, but it sure feels good.

Blaming the problems of the inner cities on the bogeyman of white racism while showering trillions on criminally incompetent administrators and politicians has made things exponentially worse, but sure makes liberals feel they are better than 'conservatives'.

That's the problem with Puritanical Liberalism: It really doesn't matter how things turn out for the objects of your beneficence in the long run, it's really about you feeling good about yourself.

Well aren't you special.

"It's easy to trivialize the suffering of those people down in New Orleans. It might as well have been a typhoon in the Philippines. Most Americans just didn't relate."

Sad..but all too true. Here is something else most Americans don't relate to or care about..the 30,000 Libyans dead as a result of NATO with the help of Obama's use of US taxpayers $$$$ invasion of that country. The Black "misleadership" class also ignored the illegal execution of Black Libyans and African immigrants by the "rebels" that were supported by NATO and Obama....and they also ignored the burning of Christian churches and the Christian neighborhoods and the flight of hundreds of thousands of Christians from that unfortunate country.

From BlackAgendaReport.com

Nearly eight months of incessant bombing by the air forces of nations that account for 70 percent of the world’s weapons spending, all culminating in the gang-bang slaughter of Moammar Gaddafi, his son Mutassim and his military chief of staff, outside Sirte. The NATO-armed bands then displayed the battered corpses for days in Misurata – the city that had earlier made good on its vow to “purge Black skin” through the massacre and dispersal of 30,000 darker residents of nearby Tawurgha – before disposing of the bodies in an unknown location.
