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: â€œWhen we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what Iâ€™m sayinâ€™?â€
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.
