The fifth column at work

Remember the noise the LSM made after Katrina about the inefficiency of the Boosh era FEMA? How incompetent these fools where, not because they were an unaccountable government behemoth, but because of Boosh being in charge and wanting to kill black people. Every LSM outlet was covering the disaster, and instead of blaming the leadership of LA for not prepping for the coming onslaught, they did their due diligence to help demonize the guy they hated. Fast forward a few years, and we have Sally smacking an unprepared east coast. The damage was huge. Obama went there to score the usual political pictures and pretend to care, but FEMA is still incompetent and at it. Only now, I have to go to Fox News to find out NYC was unprepared, FEMA sucks, and the people are pissed. In the LSM, they have moved past this story, because it will hurt their guy.

Obama, whom only really cared about the photo-op, gets a pass, Boosh however, was an evil hater tha wanted to kill colored people. And we are told there isn’t a bias in the LSM. If it was not for a double standard, the left would not have any.

    1800 people died in Katrina. This was not a comprable event, mainly because of better competence by local officials (the storm itself was as bad). But I don’t it is LSM fifth columnism to see one event as far worse than the other.

    1800 people died in Katrina.

    In LA? New Orleans specifically? Because that number likely includes all casualties, including the majority of deaths, which was in the Caribbean Islands. If I recall correctly the majority of deaths in the US where in NO, where it was the levees breaking that caused them. And I also recall the neighboring states getting hammered just as hard as NO, where the levee breaks did most of the damage, and they did not have even a fraction of the problems they had in NO.

    Like with Sally, Katrina caused havoc in LA, and specifically NO, because they did not take it seriously, either before it hit or even after it hit. Self inflicted pain, caused by the “chocolate city” mayor Naggins. Nobody in LA called and asked to be on the Federal Emergency assist list, because doing so would have made Boosh look good, and donkeys wanted none of that.

    The point is FEMA sucked then, and FEMA sucks now, but then they could make Boosh look bad, and now it is their boy. So, zero coverage. The deaths excuse sounds just like that: an excuse.
