I heard Franklin Graham declare that if every church in America would take six families, we could care for all the Hurricane Evacuees. I didn’t hear or see any action by the ACLU, the Senate Democrats, nor did I see any other militant group offer to help. I found that interesting.
In our small town with a population of around 2000, we took in families from BOTH Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. Last Friday night our church fed some 60+ people the evening meal and housed the newest evacuees in our small Civic Center. That is who we are in America. We didn’t ask any details of these folks, we just brought food, clothing, games to entertain the children, and rolled up our sleeves and helped.
Let the ACLU and the liberal press keep chattering like inane fools. That is why there is a divide with normal RED STATE folks on one side who help, and fools that chatter wildly from BLUE STATES on the other.p>Most of America is seeing this and the true colors of the liberal press as all the stories they reported proved to be lies. I love seeing the self-destruction of the liberal press. We have been shaken in the South by two disasters. We are growing stronger as a result of adversity and learning new lessons on what counts in life. br> — Beverly Gunn br> East Texas Rancher /p>
Ben Stein, in “A Big Lie Put to Rest,” gets pretty down deep and dirty, comparing the “media” to Goebbels in propagating the lie that race had anything to do with the feckless government response to Katrina.
Usually, when you level that heavy a charge, it pays to cite examples of such allegedly Goebbels-like propaganda. Stein cites not a single example. Rather, he vehemently protests that race had nothing to do with the outcome, citing that although the victims were overwhelmingly nonwhite and of less than median income, the response was as bad for whites as it was for blacks.
Assuming his conclusion were solidly true, he assumes further that no one could believe that racism was at issue in good faith — despite the fact that polls show a significant percentage of whites and a strong majority of blacks so believe. But they are presumably all dupes.p>Here’s a question — if NOLA was a predominantly white city, and the areas flooded predominantly white, would you have the Wall Street Journal and other Republicans insisting on not rebuilding much of the flooded areas, after, as one resident was quoted as noting in the New York Times
