Media Myths On Katrina

Wed,31 May, 2006

I find it interesting that libs demand apologies from Republicans for "lying", but they have ZERO interest in demanding the same from themselves or their media lap dogs when they lie. Cases in point: Dan Rather's so-called "documents" which supposedly proved Bush was AWOL and worse than that, any and all coverage of hurricane Katrina by their bitches in the media. It goes to show that libs don't give a damn about the truth and if they're proven to be liars, they ignore it and go about their business of smearing anybody in their path.

Check this out:

Media Myths On Katrina includes an article by Popular Mechanics dispelling the liberal media lies. Here's my favorite:

GOVERNMENT RESPONDED RAPIDLY MYTH:

"The aftermath of Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history."–Aaron Broussard, president, Jefferson Parish, La., Meet the Press, NBC, Sept. 4, 2005

REALITY: Bumbling by top disaster-management officials fueled a perception of general inaction, one that was compounded by impassioned news anchors. In fact, the response to Hurricane Katrina was by far the largest–and fastest-rescue effort in U.S. history, with nearly 100,000 emergency personnel arriving on the scene within three days of the storm's landfall.

Dozens of National Guard and Coast Guard helicopters flew rescue operations that first day–some just 2 hours after Katrina hit the coast. Hoistless Army helicopters improvised rescues, carefully hovering on rooftops to pick up survivors. On the ground, "guardsmen had to chop their way through, moving trees and recreating roadways," says Jack Harrison of the National Guard. By the end of the week, 50,000 National Guard troops in the Gulf Coast region had saved 17,000 people; 4000 Coast Guard personnel saved more than 33,000.

These units had help from local, state and national responders, including five helicopters from the Navy ship Bataan and choppers from the Air Force and police. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries dispatched 250 agents in boats. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), state police and sheriffs' departments launched rescue flotillas. By Wednesday morning, volunteers and national teams joined the effort, including eight units from California's Swift Water Rescue. By Sept. 8, the waterborne operation had rescued 20,000.

While the press focused on FEMA's shortcomings, this broad array of local, state and national responders pulled off an extraordinary success–especially given the huge area devastated by the storm. Computer simulations of a Katrina-strength hurricane had estimated a worst-case-scenario death toll of more than 60,000 people in Louisiana. The actual number was 1077 in that state.

 NEXT TIME: Any fatalities are too many. Improvements hinge on building more robust communications networks and stepping up predisaster planning to better coordinate local and national resources.

PM PRESCRIPTION Improving Response

 ONE OF THE BIGGEST reminders from Katrina is that FEMA is not a first responder. It was local and state agencies that got there first and saved lives. Where the feds can contribute is in planning and helping to pay for a coordinated response. Here are a few concrete steps.

My point has been that there were rescue efforts in effect even before the storm had passed. There was an article in Firehouse Magazine which mentioned that while Mississippi was still being hammered, FEMA USAR teams were already moving into south Louisiana and beginning rescue operations. Heckuva job, Brownie! Meanwhile, where were the liberal douchebag Katrina Chickens??? Nowhere.

Considering how their bitches in the media reported on the storm's aftermath and the posing and race baiting from the left, I can say without a doubt that the liberals can shove it sideways on the Katrina issue.

Additionally, the libs got all wrapped up in politicizing the issue wound up shitting all over the rescuers in the process. Way to go, FAGS! They were too busy pissing themselves for not being able to photograph dead bodies in the water to give a damn about those who were rescued and the rescuers. They were too busy spooging themselves because Sean Penn (F.A.G.) did what to help out?

Oh To Be a Minority In Congress

Fri,26 May, 2006

It amazes me how a "Democrat" can be videotaped accepting bribe money and nobody gives a good damn. Worse than that, the Republican leadership goes to bat for him. Nobody seems to give a damn about the fact that he commandeered rescue vehicles after hurricane Katrina to get his cash out of his house. If it had been a Republican who had done that, his career would have been over last September.  Looks like you can commit any crime and hide the evidence in your office and nobody will care.

"Democrats" say Well he's innocent until proven guilty. Right. Just like DeLay, Rove, Libby, Cheney, Bush etc.

Along the same lines, Hillary wants the federal government to pay for the education and healthcare of ILLEGAL immigrants. Pardon me, Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton, but I was under the impression that the taxpayers were already doing just that.

If only I were an ILLEGAL immigrant. I could get deals on education, housing, healthcare etc. and I wouldn't have to worry about it. I wouldn't have to contribute much either. Hell, if I were a liberal, I wouldn't have to even work. You don't need to work or even think for yourself. You can be the biggest pussy and gutless wonder and be elevated to high stature. You would take precedent over Americans. Hell, you could become president! The more of a gutless failure you are, the higher you'll go. Just look at the Clintons.

Also, it's not fair for those who were born with fair skin and a dick to get jobs and an education. If you're a black or Hispanic woman, you've got the most opportunities in America. You don't even have to show any appreciation for it. Just claim sexual harrassment and shit all over anybody who gets in your way. They deserve it, afterall.

But TGC, that's racist to believe that.

You're right. It is racist to promote one person over another on the baisis of skin color. It's also sexist discrimination that women are given positions in order to fill quotas. No matter how liberals spin it, they're the ones who are the racists & sexists.

And that's another reason I believe that libs can drop down, fifth ring, cook.

To the question on ProgressiveU:

Is the Bush Adminstration Deliberately Trying to Thrawt the Reconstruction New Orleans? (How Policies are Murdering New Orleans)

Isn't that the same ACORN

Isn't that the same ACORN that was caught registering voters 2 and 3 times? I'm sure they found plenty of folks who want to return.

So what's your answer? Sounds like you want the federal government to throw a couple of billion down there and let the people have at it. I'll remind you that throwing money to the neosocialist government was part of the problem to begin with. Oooh! I know, Bush could cut a check to Landrieu for the (what was it, $250 million?) pork?

BTW, there's also little known stories like how Blanco spent over $500,000 to refurbish government offices, offices the public won't ever see, even after ordering a freeze on such work. Imagine that.

Also, I noticed that you didn't mention the little known fact that illegal immigrants are working in New Orleans. Apparently, they're doing jobs that New Orleans refuse to do.
