Apparently Obama’s completely failed response to Hurricane Sandy, accompanied sweaty hugs from Bruce Springsteen’s biggest Republican fanboy, in more ways than one, won over some voters. Which just goes to show you the impact of media coverage.
The media painted Hurricane Katrina as a disaster by making up horror stories, while minimizing the damage of Hurricane Sandy by refusing to report what was going on, especially the utterly botched response by Bloomberg and Obama.
So here’s Item 401 in “Obama Don’t Care About White People: FEMA Edition.”
They fly into disaster areas, but flee from raindrops.
FEMA disaster recovery centers in Hurricane Sandy-ravaged sections of the city that were supposed to provide shelter, food and assistance to hurricane victims went MIA Wednesday morning, posting signs saying that they were closed due to the approaching Nor’easter.
The shuttering of the assistance centers, as well as city food distribution centers come even as many of those still reeling from the monster storm were not told that they had to leave the battered areas.
In Staten Island, a printed paper sign taped to the front door of on the center at 6581 Hylan Blvd. at 10:30 a.m. read “FEMA Center Closed Due to Weather.”
The demographics of Staten Island trends white, especially in coastal areas, so I’m guessing the people there don’t “Look like America” enough to get assistance. Especially since McCain won Staten Island.
