Haiti: Our Fault!

, , , , , ,

Bill Quigley, at Huffington Post, says US actions “magnified the harm” caused by the earthquake in Haiti.

How’d we do that?

Well, as a rebellion was advancing on Haiti’s capital in 2004, the United States evacuated Jean-Bertrand Aristide to safety. (He later accused the United States of kidnapping him.) Relations between Aristide, the US, Canada, and Europe had been frosty since he gained power for the second time in 2000 via flagrant election fraud. Mr. Quigley obviously takes the view that stealing elections makes the winner “democratically elected.” (Hey! It works in Chicago.)

And he proceeds to attribute responsibility to the US for Haiti’s current woes, because the failure of the International Community and the Bush Administration to deliver financial support to a hostile socialist kleptocracy is obviously to blame for a shrunken public sector in Haiti.

Danny Glover reaches even further: “When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?”

Hat tip to Tim Blair.

No money for socialist regimes, no money for Gaia, you get earthquakes. Stands to reason, if you’re a leftist.

It gets worse than poisoned words blaming the US (as usual): http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE60D6F920100114 (via Dewey http://www.deweyfromdetroit.com/)

As D notes in his post, clearing the roads might do more good than building barricades with corpses and compaining…

World Vision had gloomy tidings about the airports. I think it is going to fall to the usual vilified baby killers, our military. The only ones brave and equipped enough to do the necessary work. But then they will be accused of wickedness extraordinaire…

Sorry to sound so negative. Prayers may work where good intentions cannot…

That magical thinking again. Don’t bother us with cause and effect. If you even try to mention post hoc ergo propter hoc, we’re going to stick pins in your voodoo doll.
