The panty-wastes at the U.N. and in the Old Media have managed to turn the deaths of more than 60,000 people into yet another tool for attacking America and President Junior.
I suppose this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Throughout 2004, the Old Media has taken even the most trivial news story and found a way to use it to prove that Bush is Hitler, Republicans are Fascists and America is an evil imperialist empire. I should have predicted that the biggest news story of the year (not the election, the tsunamis) would be used in the same fashion.
First, it was the U.N.’s Jan Egeland, who referred to Americans as “stingy” in reference to our government’s aid pledge to the tsunami victims. His (and I use the masculine pronoun loosely, as he appears to be of ambiguous gender) true gripe is that he has been unable to impose his global income tax and much like the class warriors in the U.S. wants evil America to pay “its fair share”.
This shows the disconnect between how socialists view the world and how America operates. Despite the fact that the U.S. has already contributed more than any other country in the hastily-thrown-together relief efforts, this only applies to government pledges of aid. When contributions are tallied from real Americans (i.e. you and me via private organizations), we will once again be proven to be the most generous, caring country in the history of earth.
To socialists, all that matters is what government does – the rest of us don’t wait for government. Redstate America prefers to do it ourselves.
FYI, Kerry Haters have posted Egeland’s phone and fax numbers on their blog, if you would like to contact Egeland and tell him to shove it in his ass. (Thanks, Beth)
The U.N. is unqualified to tie its own shoes, much less lead peacekeeping or relief efforts – direct your money to charities that are not U.N.-related.
Here in the states, the Old Media madness continues as President Junior is being raked over the coals for continuing his vacation this week, despite the tragedy in Southeast Asia.
Bush’s deepened public involvement puts him more in line with other world figures. In Germany, Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder cut short his vacation and returned to work in Berlin because of the Indian Ocean crisis, which began with a gigantic underwater earthquake. In Britain, the predominant U.S. voice speaking about the disaster was not Bush but former president Bill Clinton, who in an interview with the BBC said the suffering was like something in a “horror movie,” and urged a coordinated international response.
This another example of why journalists are moronic, idiot bastards. At least 99.7% of them. WaPo has now used this tragedy to show how superior socialist Eurabia is to the U.S., and to prop up their lord and savior, President Clifford. Thank goodness he showed back up to make us all feel better about all this.
What the hell is Junior supposed to do? Cancel his vacation and head over there to dig through rubble for corpses? This is the same bullshit that Michael “I Once Ate an Entire Horse” Moore vomited forth with his premise that Bush continued reading to children instead of putting on his Superman™ cape and flying around the earth reversing the attacks on the World Trade Center. We all see through this garbage, so find another angle, journalists.
Just in case you thought that was it, there’s more. Seems the whole earthquake/tsunami thing was our fault to begin with because of global warming. At least that’s what Al Reuters thinks. Unsurprisingly, this is pretty much what the DU’ers and socialist blogosphere is parroting as well. What a bunch of pants-shitting mental midgets.
- The tsunami is America’s fault because we created global warming
- America is not paying enough in relief efforts
- This is why we need a global tax
- Bush is Hitler
- President Clifford is the world’s messiah – why can’t you right-wing hatemongers see that?
- Michael Moore is hungry
- I need some more coffee
