I cannot begin to imagine the horror the people in Moore, Oklahoma felt yesterday, and will feel for some time to come.
I cannot imagine being the parent of a child in that class of third graders who didn’t make it out of School alive.
I cannot imagine being one of the first responders who had to dig their poor little bodies out of the rubble, or being one of the surviving teachers who tried so valiantly but in the end could not save those children.
CAN NOT IMAGINE.
Don’t WANT to imagine.
It hurts to much.
What I also cannot imagine is being the kind of soulless, insensitive politically charged douchebag who would use this tragedy as a chance to pounce on my political opposites, or to grandstand for cuts to social programs. Erick Erickson. Liz Winstead, and Oklahoma’s own Senator Tom Coburn are all colossal douchehats who need a swift kick in the reproductive bits and a time-out from Twitter and their jobs.
Because his party of favor is getting nowhere with BENGHAAAAAAZI! (and has been revealed to have sat on the IRS “scandal” since last summer because they really have nada since the IRS is known to have targeted liberal groups, too), Erickson thought a devastating natural disaster was a GREAT time to take potshots at the President : When called on it , Erickson’s first response was this, but when even conservatives began to pile on him he deleted the Tweet.
(Guess Erickson forgot about that neat little invention called the screenshot)
His Facebook page is a stream of outraged comments that echo the sentiment Steve Marmel expressed so well:
Liz Winstead, creator of The Daily Show, had a moment of stupidTweety, too…….
Bombarded by pissed off libs and conservatives alike, Winsted weakly apologized but excuse me if I say “fuck off, Winstead” . It’s a goddamn TORNADO. Devastation is almost always part and parcel of a tornado touch-down, much less on that is classed at F-5.
I expect that kind of “those people were asking for it/ God hates group X” dumbassery from Pat Robertson or Bryan Fischer.
Yeah, we’ll let you have it, all right, Liz.
And last but not least, Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn has looked at the devastation to his constituents, heard the lamenting of anguished parents whose children were buried beneath their school, seen the teary faces of rescue workers who were pulling bodies out of rubble, seen the entire subdivisions flattened to their foundations, and has stated that “federal aid to victims should be offset with cuts elsewhere in the budget because fuck sick, poor, hungry, illiterate people……….multi-national corporations and rich people with Cayman bank accounts need tax cuts, bitchez!”
Seriously……what the FUCK is wrong with people?????
