This time KOS claimed that Homeland Security refused to allow BC's Urban Search and Rescue Team into LaFayette, Louisianna to help, claiming that information came from "a canadian source."
Wanna know what THIS canadian has to say:
This was yet another bogus attempt at KOS' favorite pastime: Bush Bashing. The Canadian team left Wednesday without delay, and have been working with Louisiana State Troopers, as well as the National Guard.
British Columbia's Heavy Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) left for Lafayette, La. Wednesday night after being asked by state officials for assistance.On Thursday, the team was in Kenner, La. -- a small city of about 75,000 on the Mississippi River's East Bank -- where police described the violence and looting as "out of control".
Here is the complete article disproving the bullshit that KOS attempted to perpetuate. Lets see if KOS will actually offer an apology and retraction! Doubtful since the whole post was set up to allow Bush Bashing terrorist loving jerks to continue to spew their vitrolic crap about the President and the Administration
Imagine Daily Kos taking advantage of a horrific catastrophe to further their Bush Bashing agenda.
And speaking of DISFUCKINGUSTING - Kanye West
He managed to RUIN a moving event meant to raise money to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Instead of calls offering up donations, NBC received calls from ANGRY mortified Americans!
What really annoys me is that this asshat was considered by TIME to be "the smartest man in pop music". As compared to WHO? Michael Jackson?
Kanye has his own clothing line so instead of spewing off his inflamatory lies, why didn't he offer up his entire clothing line for free to those he calls " my people".
KUDOS to NBC for releasing this statement that exemplifies the spirit of this event:
"Tonight's telecast was a live television event wrought with emotion. Kanye West departed from the scripted comments that were prepared for him, and his opinions in no way represent the views of the networks. It would be most unfortunate if the efforts of the artists who participated tonight and the generosity of millions of Americans who are helping those in need are overshadowed by one person's opinion.
And KUDOS to The Red Cross for issuing this statement:
The American Red Cross is incredibly grateful for the support we’re receiving in the wake of the catastrophic events caused by Hurricane Katrina. We want to acknowledge the ongoing support of NBC-Universal, which aired a telethon tonight on behalf of the victims of this tragedy.
During the telecast, a controversial comment was made by one of the celebrities. We would like the American public to know that our support is unwavering, regardless of political circumstances. We are a neutral and impartial organization, and support disaster victims across the country regardless of race, class, color or creed. We cannot, and we do not endorse any comments of a political nature.
