You wait to see if he gets it by the end of his first term, then you realize you are the idiot, because you didn’t get it. The first “post racial” President sees only through a color prism.
In Louisiana the place is flooded out. People are ruined. Houses destroyed. Citizens are helping citizens of all colors. Donald Trump goes down there and I think maybe for the first time realizes what it is like to be devastated. He sees it on TV, but not like what he saw in person. Good for him.
However, Obama is golfing. I kid you not. And his vacation comes first. He doesn’t care about the people of Louisiana because he can’t care- he’s a narcissist in the greatest order. His excuse is he would screw up the rescue efforts if he showed up. In truth, showing up would screw up his dinner and golf plans. Yet, he does manage to do something. He reminds the people of Louisiana that they had better not be racist, like the assumption is they would be. “Y’know those southern crackers…”
President Obama has refused so far to survey the Louisiana flood disaster, but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.
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).”
The guidance’s frameworks “highlight the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts.”
Needless to say, some Louisiana residents were offended, including the American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, who took umbrage at receiving an anti-discrimination lecture from Washington, D.C., as locals struggle to rescue, house and feed their neighbors.
“[E]verywhere you look you can find black folks and white folks loving on each other, helping each other through this crisis,” Mr. Dreher said in a Thursday post.
He referred to the guidance as a “long bureaucratic memo” issued by the “Department of Justice and many other agencies of the executive branch overseen by He Who Cannot Be Troubled to Leave Martha’s Vineyard.”
Natural disasters do not discriminate. As a Southerner, I can tell you we don’t care about race like Obama sees it. If you are drowning, I’m going to get you regardless of your color or race or gender or orientation. That’s because you are a drowning human, and Southerners don’t let that happen. I can’t speak for the people in the Hamptons, they may very well let the “lesser” people drown. But not here. Below is a video capture of men saving a woman and her dog. You can tell the men are white, the woman is maybe Asian, the dog is a dog. The men risked their lives getting her and the dog to safety.
Here’s the actual video. It ends with stills of the devastation.
Back when New Orleans flooded Obama complained about Bush’s response. Now Obama literally emailing and phoning it in from a golf course? The balls on the guy, and not just the dimpled ones in his golf pants either.
You can tell he’s done with the aggravation of being President. If he were a regular government employee, you know he would add up his vacation time and leave early- if HRC was replacing him…and he had any vacation time built up. But that guy is ALWAYS on vacation.
