The Post-Katrina “Foot-In-Mouth-Award” Goes To…
Since Katrina hit, there have been a lot of people who’ve managed to end up with a foot in their mouth. But, there has been one man, one anti-semitic, loony man who has stood out above all others: Louis Farrakhan.
Yes, Mr. million man march’s mouth has been a regular fountain of stupidity that has spewed idiocy both near and far across the land.
First, there was this:
“New Orleans is the first of the cities going to tumble down… unless America changes its course. It is the wickedness of the people of America and the government of America that is bringing the wrath of God down.”
Granted, that’s a dumb quote, but it’s by no means unique. Unfortunately, there have been people claiming that God nailed New Orleans in retribution for everything from the Gaza withdrawl to abortion, so that quotation in and of itself isn’t as remarkable as it would seem at first.
But from there, Farrakhan took it up to the next level:
“FEMA is too white to represent us and so is the Red Cross, so we’re going to demand our place at the table.”
So now, FEMA and the Red Cross are just “too white” to give aid to black people? Great, then maybe they can go home and the Nation of Islam can take it from here. I’m sure that in about 15 years, at a cost of 350 billion dollars or so, Calypso Louis would have about half of the city of
New Orleans Farrakhanastan pumped dry.
What a moron.
In any case, had Farrakhan stopped there, he would have still had a decent shot of winning of taking the foot-in-mouth crown. But Farrakhan — being Farrakhan — just couldn’t settle down. No, he had to clinch it by repeating this nutso conspiracy theory:
“I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry.”
You may think that theory sounds crazy, but that’s exactly what the white devil wants you think — no, wait, it is crazy — and it also sealed the deal for Louis Farrakhan, winner of the Post-Katrina “Foot-In-Mouth-Award”!
