What Is Being Left - Hideous Desperation...


"You heard that the flooding in New Orleans is Bush's fault, right? Yeah, the governmnet earmarked the money two years ago to repair the levess, and Bush took the money and spent it on his war in Iraq."
-Portland Trimet Commuter, Thursday September 1, 2005

"Is it true that the government designed a damn to hold back flood water and Bush spent 80% of the funding on the Iraq War?"
-Coworker, Thursday September 1, 2005

Where might you ask, does inanity like this originate? From Sydney Blumenthal for starters. In a recent article for the German Magazine Spiegel entitled, "No One Can Say they Didn't See it Coming," He expands on the Left's comprehensive meme, "Its Bush's Fault!"

A year ago the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed to study how New Orleans could be protected from a catastrophic hurricane, but the Bush administration ordered that the research not be undertaken. After a flood killed six people in 1995,Congress created the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project, in which the Corps of Engineers strengthened and renovated levees and pumping stations. In early 2001, the Federal Emergency Management Agency issued a reportstating that a hurricane striking New Orleans was one of the three most likely disasters in the U.S., including a terrorist attack on New York City. But by 2003 the federal funding for the flood control project essentially dried up as it was drained into the Iraq war.
In the midst of this tragedy, it would be equally as senseless as Blumenthal himself ,to refute his simplistic and erroneous charges with the facts. But if we must, then look here, here, and here. Sufficed to say that the geographic flaws of the city of New Orleans have been recognized and discussed for the better part of two centuries. The levees themselves as one solution, have become the primary problem. The final solution has evaded everyone, both in terms of method and motivation. The issue at hand today revolves around national unity. In a functional civilization, cultural unity is a prerequisite. In times of crisis, civic unity is an imperative. And Blumenthal further demonstrates that what is being Left has no interest in solutions nor solidarity. For them, tragedy is opportunity... for a hideous form of profiteering.

Blumenthal is not unique with his unconscionable persuasions. It is fermented by Will Bunch at
Philadelphia Editor & Publisher, who runs further with Sydney's notions. Even Cindy Sheehan spreads herself again with a post entitled, "It Was the Oil, Stupid" (HT. Hugh Hewitt)

George is finished playing golf and telling his fables in San Diego , so he will be heading to Louisiana to see the devastation that his environmental policies and his killing policies have caused. Recovery would be easier and much quicker if almost ½ of the three states involved National Guard were not in Iraq. All of the National Guard's equipment is in Iraq also. Plus, with the 2 billion dollars a week that theprivate contractors are siphoning from our treasury, how are we going to pay for helping our own citizens in Louisiana , Mississippi, and Alabama? And, should I dare say "global warming?" and be branded as a "conspiracy theorist" on top of everything else the reich-wingers say about me. (emphasis mine)
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. takes a sidetrack and declares
“For They That Sow the Wind Shall Reap the Whirlwind” to deounce the Republican's environmental policy as he blames the President for unleashing Katrina himself.

As Hurricane Katrina dismantles Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, it’s worth recalling the central role that Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour played in derailing the Kyoto Protocol and kiboshing President Bush’s iron-clad campaign promise to regulate CO2. ..... Well, the science is clear. This month, a study published in the journal Nature by a renowned MIT climatologist linked the increasing prevalence of destructive hurricanes to human-induced global warming. Now we are all learning what it’s like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which Barbour and his cronies have encouraged. Our destructive addiction has given us a catastrophic war in the Middle East and--now--Katrina is giving our nation a glimpse of the climate chaos we are bequeathing our children.

Jack Cafferty of CNN, for the second time this week, again dons his half of a mule costume today and launches on another on-air anti-Bush tirade. Ted Koppel joins in on Nightline last night. The cacophony continues to eminate from the black heart of the fetid core of what is being Left. Michelle Malkin logs some of the most notable examples this morning.

Jessie Jackson is losing what little of his malicious mind remains. But his son takes the fruit cake with this Soliloquy. Charges of racism and genocide, and overt condemnations of Capitalism and American Democracy are today's matras for what is being Left... and it gets worse every moment. There can be no further talk from the Left about the President being a great divider, when the truth is that what is being Left is solely responsible for ripping this nation to shreds in time of war, crisis, and now even disaster.

When I began this illustration, I submitted this:

"Take a political movement that was developed via modern sensibilities and enlightened ideological exploration, that flourished during a cultural orgy of unbounded depravity and ultimately - due to a natural shifting of cultural sensibilities - lost touch with mainstream ideas and was in the process of being discarded. What would happen to that movement? Pardon the apparent hyberbole for a moment and recall what happens to sewerage. Once the water is filtered from the solid waste, that sludge is deposited in ponds where it evaporates to a superconcentrated paste of septic waste. America is well into the turning of the Cultural Revolution resulting in a maturation of sensibilities, and a renewed appreciation of ethics, morals, values, and integrity. As more and more 'good' citizens evaporate from Liberalism and the Democrat party, all that will be left is the filth...

That which is untreatable, not compatible, will go nowhere else...

and stinks unbearably of rot and decomposition.What is being Left is a toxic poison that is attempting to feed itself to humanity...

... by force!

Indeed it has come to pass. At this moment, when the people of the nation (and especially the victims along the Gulf Coast) desperately desire - indeed need - the empowerment of unity, what is being Left sees opportunity in disunity in the midst of tragedy. It is disgusting. They see the halo of two election results superimposed over everything that happens in this nation

What America sees is the hideous visage of malevolent ruin in the desperation of what is being Left. And it stinks unbearably.
