Finally, the Rabid Right Wing Shows Up in White Sheets

A collection of reactions from the far right on Katrina...

Rick Scarborough, Vision America

So what were Scarborough's examples of "how we are bringing disaster on ourselves?" First, he cited California's AB 849, a bill changing the definition of marriage in that state from "a man and a woman" to "two persons." Scarborough's second example was even weirder, and more reflective of the Christian right's curious focus on, shall we say, unorthodox sex acts. Check out what he wrote:

In Washington State, a man recently died from internal injuries sustained from committing bestiality with a horse. The incident led police to raid a farm where people were going to have sex with animals.

Though they discovered hundreds of explicit videotapes, apparently, nothing can be done about it. Washington is one of only a handful of states that does not have a law against bestiality....

Is Scarborough suggesting something even more sinister than we know about FEMA head Michael Brown's days at the International Arabian Horse Association? Could Brown have somehow planned Katrina to distract from possible future revelations of horse buggering? And will Katrina now head north and east, towards Russia, where God will exact revenge for the death of Catherine the Great? Or could Scarborough be deadly serious in blaming a bunch of stallion shaggers in rural Washington for flooding New Orleans? Sometime a horse is just a horse, of course.

UPDATE: Jesus' General Responds!

American Spectator

Like riotous Los Angeles since the 1960s, New Orleans has been a wasteland of politically correct dysfunction for decades -- public schools so obviously decimated vouchers were proposed this year (and torpedoed by the left), barbaric gangster rap culture no one will confront lest they offend liberal pieties, multiculturalist frauds who empower no one but themselves, and cops neutered by the NAACP and ACLU.

Kyl Blames New Orleans Residents

During a radio interview last week, Arizona talk show host Barry Young spoke out in favor of a strong national response to Hurricane Katrina. Arizona's Republican Senator Jon Kyl, on the other hand, was not so supportive, instead suggesting that the victims are to blame for lacking insurance and living in a city below sea level! Senator Kyl owes the victims an immediate apology for such callous, disrespectful statements.
Kyl Suggests Uninsured Hurricane Victims Shouldn’t Receive Federal Relief Funds. Speaking about Hurricane Katrina on KFYI-FM last week, Kyl said, “the question is if people know year after year after year a natural disaster occurs in a particular place and people continue to build there and want to live there, should they bear the responsibility of buying insurance or should everyone else bear the responsibility?” [Arizona Republic, 9/4/05]

- Before Katrina, 28% of City of New Orleans Lived in Poverty. In 1999, 28% of New Orleans residents were living in poverty. Before Hurricane Katrina hit, 125,000 people in New Orleans lived below the federal poverty level. [US Census Bureau, Louisiana Quick Facts; Knight Ridder, 9/5/05]

- 20% of Victims Had No Cars to Evacuate. According to the Associated Press, “Two in 10 households in the disaster area had no car, compared with 1 in 10 in nationwide.” [AP, 9/4/05]

That's a senator talking, folks. For more, how about Rick Santorum? From Daily Kos

" have people who don't heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving."

These folks are sicKKK...

....but it only gets worse....

Tom Tancredo Congresscritter from Colorado, has asked Dennis Hastert to withhold assistance to New Orleans.
