Liberals Cheer Southern Tornado Destruction
Last week I was reading a news article on Yahoo about the horrific loss of life and property in the wake of dozens of Tornadoes which plagued the Mid-west and southern states in these last few days. I saw folks standing in front of their demolished homes, their shoulders slumped in sad resignation.
I saw rescuers pulling old people out from the rubble of the only homes they ever knew. I saw people salvaging family photos from the heaps of destruction.
I saw a 20-month old girl plucked from the middle of a cow pasture; she had been plucked from the arms of her mother, violently lifted up and slammed down in a field a mile away.
I saw the folks at storm shelters, tagging the backs of old people's jackets with a note "watch closely, do not allow to exit shelter", lest these old folks, their minds clouded by age and shock, attempt to return to homes that are no longer there.
As most of you who have read Yahoo news articles, at the bottom of the article are message boards which allow readers to comment on the particular bit of news.
So, imagine my shock when I began to read the comments attached to the storm stories, the vast majority were hateful liberal spews denigrating the victims of these storms. Here's just a sampling:
"All right you Southern crackers! Where's your God now! If everything is God's will just shut up and take it!"
"Cheers to the tornadoes! Now you Tea-baggers are getting what you deserve!"
"Hey Bible Thumpers!" "How's Your Bible and Your Guns Working For You About Now!"
"Hey Right Wing Mid-West Trailer Trash!" "You want government to do less...so we'll just leave you to rot in your own rubble!"
"Glad to Read This!"...Tea Baggers finally getting what they deserve!"
The hate speech went on and on for days.
So what are we to make of this? Liberals profess to have greater sympathy for those who are downtrodden. If so, how does one explain the outpouring of hate toward the storm victims?
Could it be that most liberals only care about those whom they can cast as "victims", when those victims can advance their political objectives? Is their any better evidence that the liberal socialists care only about the "victims" when they can be used as tools to advance their socialist agenda?
Finally, what can we say about the state of the "liberal soul" when such spewing of hate erupts amidst such tragic human misery.
