A great storm is not evil any more than is disease. It is bad, yes. But it is a simple manifestation of natural law. Get used to it, get through it, get over it. And we will. In the current Gulf Coast catastrophe, however, we do see evil. Not in every case of the despicable rape, looting and parasitism that has risen in the area. Many of those acts are the product of weak, aimless minds without a basis in rational life. Just shoot them and move on. Real evil is the result of intent and design. Real evil is encouraging and excusing the perpetrators of these acts.
Where we see true evil is in the forces that feed upon and nurture the fear and misery of the storm victims. The parasites of the media who seek out and encourage every available victim with a grudge that can be directed against the President and by extension, the United States and the American People. These are the sycophants wearing out their knees worshipping the monstrous idols of hatred in our time - Stalin, Mao, Castro and Hussein - and their would-be successors, the Kennedys, Clintons, Kleagles and Kerrys.
because of the perverse, hostile, and malignent state of the opposition, with their facility, of imposing on the public mind, & producing excitements, every measure originating with the executive will be attacked with a virulence. - Attorney General Levi Lincoln to President Jefferson on the establishment of the Corps of Discovery, 1803.
These are the minions of the Collectivist Nuts Network - like Wolfie and the Weasels (an insult to the Mustilidae), and the unspeakably oily Ball-less Matthews and Brain-dead Williams of Misery Sellers Needing Bad Cess still mooning over his spineless coup of 09/11/01, pining for another "underground bunker" meme. These are the persons who can label the President cynical (a lie) for showing up immediately and callous (a lie) if he does not. Now, who is cynical? Who is callous? Who lies while people die?
These are the persons who spread the impression that "global warming" (caused by Bush) is increasing tropical cyclone frequency (a lie). These are the feeders on human life that will do everything in their power to retard and prevent a mighty nation from healing and repairing itself and attempt to assign guilt to every effort to create life from the ruins. And life is what they truly hate. Make no mistake; this is not just another passing political contretemps in the normal, messy course of the life of the nation. This is war against not only a man and a party; it is war against life.
These are the vampires of the soul and the eaters of conciousness. They wish for death, for us and for themselves. Without the productive individuals who feed them they would not exist. Get a clue folks. It is not they who are ultimately guilty, since none of them have ability to sustain their own lives without our support. They are irremedial parasites - from choice - and they must not be fed any longer.
Update As I close this, 15:00 PDT, CNN's Lou "Clueless" Dobbs, introducing the President's remarks, is attempting to foment racial discord by suggesting that more of New Orleans' black population is suffering because they are being deliberately neglected.
Note There are no links in this post. You know how to find the President already and I will not link to the other persons and cells mentioned.
ps The sorry bastards at MSNBC actually have a fucking clock measuring the time elapsed since the administration began ignoring the storm victims!!!
