President Bush doesn’t care about white people

Standard

I’m sure you remember when Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans and thousands of homes were destroyed, and activists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were all over the TV news saying it’s President Bush’s fault, that he didn’t do enough about the insufficient levees and that he didn’t visit there quick enough and he didn’t get all the people out of the flooded areas.  Bush took a lot of blame for that situation, and some of the activists were saying he didn’t care about black people.

Well, now the Midwest has flooded, including almost all of Iowa.  Thousands of homes and businesses have been destroyed because of torrential rains plus broken levees, and it continues to get worse.  Also, thousands of acres of food crops were destroyed.  Was George W. Bush there the next day to visit?  No.  (He was in Europe, but maybe he should’ve got over here right away.)  Did he fix the levees before the storms to protect all those white people and their crops?  Nope.  Has he sent money to the people who didn’t buy insurance to protect their property?  No.  So what’s the deal?  Obviously, President Bush doesn’t care about white people.  It’s so clear now.  He is prejudiced against Caucasian-Americans and European-Americans.

But where is the outrage?  Millions of people have been affected by this flood in the U.S. Midwest, and where are the white activists?  Who will stand up for these people?  Doesn’t anyone care?  Who will hold Bush and the government accountable?

So by now you might have guessed that this is satire.  Although, the facts are based on actual news, and there is a parallel between Hurricane Katrina and the flooding in the Midwest.  But there was advance warning and predictions about what happened in New Orleans, Louisiana.  So why is one a greater outrage than the other among the political and racial activists?

You can draw your own conclusions…

  1. ummm…maybe bush is just a [jerk] counting down the days…

  2. Great post. Great writing style. What I’ve found and what I am truly beginning to believe is that we, americans, are all in a lot of trouble regardless of race, religion, etc. Sure, Bush has dropped the ball a couple of times and his administration has made some mistakes but I don’t think he is as bad as the left wing media and liberal politicians would have us think. He has kept us safe since september 11, 2001. We have not had any other domestic attacks since then. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a job well done. We are in a time where when the two parties, democrat and republican, will not come together for the better of the country. Each believes that their way is the right way and that there is no compromise. Both sides are so intent on defaming the other that they don’t look at this issues, such as the ones mentioned above, and find a solution or provide help. Instead, they wait for the opportune moment to point out how the other side failed to act. We can’t continue this way for very long. Liberals and conservatives, alike, are going to find themselves in a country that barely resembles, in all aspects, the country they grew up in and grew to love since the day they were born or the day they moved here.

  3. I agree that America is in a lot of trouble, and that very few people even realize how bad it is. And contrary to popular belief, it’s not all Bush’s fault. The economy is a big concern, and most politicians act like it’s not a big deal. Like I wrote on my other blog recently, if our government paid $1 million a day toward our national debt, it would take 26,000 years to pay it off, and that’s not counting the future interest. Try to convince me that’s not a big problem.

    Regardless of what you feel about the Iraq war, there are groups of people intent on destroying America, and we need to fight for our freedom. (I’m not saying we’re doing it the best way.) Politicians need to get beyond what party they’re in, and get focused on what’s best for our country! These political games are causing major damage to our country, and some really serious issues are being neglected while people argue over whose fault it is.

    Onyx, thanks for the compliment! It’s good to see you here again. I didn’t know if you still came here regularly or not, because it’s been a while since I saw a comment from you.
