Spike Lee has apparently decided to hitch a ride on the same crazy train Louis Farrakhan has been riding over the levees in New Orleans:
“Declaring “it’s not far-fetched,” movie director Spike Lee affirmed on Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, that he believes Louis Farakhan’s allegation that a levee was destroyed in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina in order to flood the nearly all-black ninth ward. Lee contended that “a choice had to be made, one neighborhood got to save another neighborhood and flood another ‘hood, flood another neighborhood.” ABC News reporter Michel Martin chimed in with how “anybody with any knowledge of history can understand why a lot of people can feel this way, that that’s a reasonable theory.” But she went on to dismiss the theory, prompting Lee to demand: “Presidents have been assassinated. So why is that so far-fetched?” To hearty applause from the Los Angeles audience, Lee asked: “Do you think that election in 2000 was fair? You don’t think that was rigged?” Lee argued: “If they can rig an election, they can do anything!”

You know what kills me about this? It’s not that Spike Lee buys into this conspiracy theory, because let’s face it, Spike Lee is a complete chucklehead. What kills me is that you have a reporter from ABC, who knows better, saying that Lee is espousing a “reasonable theory.”
That’s just it, it’s not a “reasonable theory,” it’s a wacky conspiracy theory and educated people should be laughing at dopes like Louis Farrakhan and Spike Lee for believing in it. Instead, we have a moron like Spike Lee claiming that the government deliberately drowned black people in New Orleans, based on the word of a crackpot who has visions about space ships, and he’s being taken seriously.
That’s one of the worst things about modern politics. Because of political correctness, politeness, and fear of offending political allies, people are far too accepting of ridiculous conspiracy theories. The country deserves better than that…
