Democrats Politicizing Tragedy – Again

leave a comment »

First, all of us at The Rabid Conservative, writers and readers alike would like to express our deepest prayers and expressions of concern to the folks in Oklahoma City that have been affected by the tornadoes this week.  May God bless and comfort you during this time as our country stands up to help wherever it can.

That being said, I would like to take this time to deal out some castigation for Senator Sheldon Whitehouse D-RI, who decided to use this tragedy as a platform to rail against the GOP regarding so-called global warming.  Instead of just simply offering his sympathy and support, this Democrat decided to rant:

“You drag America with you to your fate. So, I want this future: I want a Republican Party that has returned to its senses and is strong and a worthy adversary in a strong America that has done right by its people and the world. That’s what I want. I don’t want this future. I don’t want a Republican Party disgraced, that let its extremists run off the cliff, and an America suffering from grave economic and environmental and diplomatic damage because we failed, because we didn’t wake up and do our duty to our people, and because we didn’t lead the world. I do not want that future. But that’s where we’re headed. So I will keep reaching out and calling out, ever hopeful that you will wake up before it is too late.”

You unbelievable scumbag.  While we all have our differences regarding things like the economy. diplomacy abroad as well as domestic matters, talking about the so-called ‘fiscal cliff’, and the like, this is not the time to attack the GOP.  Seriously?  How dare you dishonor those who died with your political diatribe?

And this thing may not yet be over.  This area may still have more of these to deal with, and rather than sounding calls to help those people, you sit in your nice Washington office and gripe at your political opponents while people are asking for aid – saying we’re ‘in this together’:

“So, you may have a question for me. Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas. It hits Rhode Island with floods and storms. It hits Oregon with acidified seas, it hits Montana with dying forests. So, like it or not, we’re in this together.”

You offend me, sir.  These folks don’t need your rants – they need prayers and support.  If we are so much “in it together”, then when can we expect that you will arrive in Oklahoma to help the people there?

Yeah, we didn’t think so either.
