A tale of two disasters: some pertinent questions

Remember the hysteria the greeted Hurricane Katrina? The denunciations of George Bush and the Army Corps of Engineers?  The round-the-clock charges of racism?The unremitting media consternation about government  “failure”?


Compare all that with the formerly mainstream media’s response to the devastation wrought by tornadoes these last few weeks in the Midwest. In order to help you with the exercise, I pass along a few photographs from that unfolding horror, with accompanying questions that a friend sent me. [UPDATE: some of these photographs come from previous natural disasters in the Midwest: the response, however was always the same.]


Why is the MSM not demanding to know where are the FEMA trucks and trailers and food services?


Why isn't the Federal government moving Iowa people into free hotels in Chicago and Minneapolis?


When will Spike Lee say that the Federal government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines ?


Where are Sean Penn, Bono, and the Dixie Chicks? Where are Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Oprah, and the rest of Hollywood’s left-wing elite?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes, cases of beer and television sets?


When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a 'vanilla' Iowa - because that's what God wants?


Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of shootings at rescuers, of rapes and murder?


Why is no one screaming that Barack Obama hates white, rural people?


Where are the government bail out vouchers? The government debit cards?
