Racism in Iowa

How else can you explain this?

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?

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

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a "vanilla" Iowa, because that's the way God wants it?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

C'mon, the last one is easy! You'll never hear about it again because pallid Midwesterners suffering from a natural disaster is nowhere near as important as minorities who are hit with a catastrophe; after all, Dick Cheny would never turn his weather-making machine against his own people, right? When minorities are struck with a natural event, it is preventable, and an impeachable offense.

"Remember New Orleans!!"

But when the gates of hell open up upon Iowa? Well, whether they are Boy Scouts slaughtered by a twister, or townfolks threatened by a flood, one can almost see the smirk of the mainstream media as they think to themselves, "Where's their precious Jesus now?"
When it comes to middle-class Midlle-Americans, well, we've got it coming - actually, we all deserve it it a kind of way, right? (Unless it is something the media can spin against Republicans, like, say, the housing "crisis". Then middle-class Americans who used their homes as an ATM machine are to be pitied, of course).

The obligitory minimal reporting is provided, and the press hustles its rumpled self off, looking for something more likely to fit their PC narrative, as the citizens of Iowa are once again left to fend for themselves....

and where is their retraction over the Haditha story, anyway? Same place as the stories about suffering Iowans, I'd guess.

Jay Leno is doing a benefit in Las Vegas this weekend for flood relief, Good for him.
