Don't Discriminate

That's the message Obama's Justice Department sent to Louisiana yesterday.  Yeah, Really.  In a memo detailing relief efforts, we get a caution.
In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”
Oh, that pisses me off.  If this disaster has shown us anything, it has shown that when times are bad and people are in danger, it's the neighbors near you who will show up to help, before the national agencies are on the ground.  It's your neighbors and family who launch boats to come get you.  It's local officials who open shelters, and it's local folks who help feed you.

Donald Trump made an appearance yesterday.  Not a photo op, but I'm sure that a lot of folks took photos.  He also brought relief supplies and handed them out.

In the recent history of natural disasters, for the first two days, you are on your own.   With the Obama administration, when they finally arrive, it's only to insult you.

Tell you what, Mr. President.  How about you keep your lame-duck, golf playing, always vacationing, skinny ass back in Washington.  Louisiana doesn't need you.  Matter of fact, you need to start packing.  The most disastrous presidential term in history is just about over (thank God) and Louisiana doesn't need you here.  Just carry your dope-smoking ass back to wherever you came from.

I abhor everything about that man.

.....the administration guidance cited instances of discrimination in Gulf Coast states after Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in 2005, such as “numerous media reports [that] showed images of African Americans stranded on roofs in New Orleans.”

“These images exposed significant inequalities in access to emergency response and recovery efforts,” said the guidance....

That is such BS, and demonstrates that BHO and Company were/are totally clueless how the Katrina rescue plan unfolded. People were rescued as the rescuers could get to them.

However, there were numerous instances of African-Americans who refused to to get in a helicopter lift chair to be winched up to the hovering helicopter, so those folks had to wait on the roofs until a boat could get there. But that was their personal choice.
