Diary Of A Hollywood Refugee

KOS, known for attracting the "I Hate Bush" Moonbats to his Daily Kos blog, has once again printed yet another lie.

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.

    Kaye West is entitled to express his opinion in a democratic society. Many artists and politicians have expressed dismay with this administration's coordination of the rescue of the people of the Gulf Coast. Last night in his speech, President Bush said:

    "Four years after the frightening experience of September the 11th, Americans have every right to expect a more effective response in a time of emergency. When the federal government fails to meet such an obligation, I, as President, am responsible for the problem, and for the solution."

    Of all the entertainers to which Kanye could be compared, why Michael Jackson? Oh I see. It's the color of his skin.

    Let's start with your stupid inane attempt at turning this into a race issue especially since you have NO idea what colour MY skin is!

    You also have no idea about the AGREEMENT EVERY artist who appeared on that telethon SIGNED...including Kanye.

    It stated CLEARLY that all POLITICAL baggage was to be left at the door...and that ALL ARTISTS were to STICK TO THE SCRIPT. THIS was not a political fundraising event.

    Also, it's one thing to critise slow action on the part of the gov't...its another to call our President a racist.

    It would seem that EVERY other artist had NO problem honoring that agreement EXCEPT Mr. West -was considered by TIME to be one of the smartest music artists- now that's a joke!Kanye is SO SMART that he apparently can't understand and HONOR an agreement that EVERYONE ELSE was able to.

    NO ONE is denying that Kanye has the constitutional right to voice any critism at the gov't IN THE RIGHT venue. THIS was NOT THE RIGHT VENUE.
    Kanye- like all artists- is free to speak his mind ANY OTHER TIME..but was bound by a signed agreement not to do so at this particular event.

    Kanye could have called a press conference the next day and made his inane comments at that time.

    Or better yet..he could have gone to New Orleans and DONE something instead of point fingers, laying blame, and accusing our Pres.of being a racist..which is a blantant lie. To defame someone personally is grounds for a legal action. .

    Its one thing to critise slow action on the part of the gov't...its another to call our President a racist!! Inadequate action has nothing to do with race!

    The focus of the telethon was on raising money to help victims regardless of your political alignment. NBC IS NO FAN OF THE BUSH ADMINSTRATION..yet they felt it was MORE important to focus on fundraisisng then finger pointing.

    AND thats why the RED CROSS agreed to participate.THEY ARE A NON PARTISON AGENCY!

    And one quick review of their website will verify that Gov. Blanco REFUSED to allow them into the DOME prior to Katrina striking New Orleans.

    Im sorry...is Blanco considered a racist..does SHE hate blacks ...her actions seem questionable. Why didnt Kanye include her in his OUT OF LINE diatribe??

    NBC willingly issued an apology for Kanye's UNWARRANTED rambling and false accusations...are they racists too? I mean after all he was the ONLY artist that made those comments. Should we spew out nonsense about NBC turning this into a "race" issue??

    Only a fool( and there have been many) would turn any of this into a RACE issue.

    And why is it that the BLACK MAYOR of New Orleans isnt being targeted for HIS FAILURES...of which there were many? Is it cause he's black? SHould we claim that reverse racism is happening???

    He failed at protecting the poor blacks who couldn't evacuate. Why doesnt that fall into your myopic race issue? How about a WHITE democratic Gov. who FINALLY ADMITS that she fucked up BIG time. Is she a racist also? She refused to allow the RED CROSS into the DOME before the Hurrican struck because she didnt want people to stay at the dome rather than evacuate.
    Well, what about the 25ooo predominantly black evacuues in the dome, shouldn't they have been able to get Red Cross assistance WHILE in the DOME before the Hurricane struck ..because getting to them afterwards was going to be damn near impossible. Apparently she didnt' think that situation through very clearly .....hmmm..she's a democrat and white and female...so of course YOU won't hold HER accountable. Why isn't she a "racist" why didn't Kanye accuse HER of hating black people!! Why hasn't anyone, including yourself OR Kanye even MENTIONED that she FINALLY accepted responsibility for HER failures. Oh yeah..She's a democrat and heaven forbid that you all admit DEMS FUCKED UP!

    SHe FINALLY admits her failures AFTER Pres Bush stepped up and accept responsibility for the Fed screw ups!

    Seems the ONLY man who hasn't accepted responsibility for HIS fuck ups is the BLACK Mayor of New Orleans!

    As for this being a "black "issue...
    what people fail to admit..is that over 80% of those living in NOLA evacuated safely...out of the 80% - the majority were black americans.

    It would appear to me that the problem is one of "CLASS" not "COLOR".

    You're blog is called Left and Right Side of the Brain...I suggest you try using both before making stupid comments and assinine false assumptions ...esp. about Kanye! He acted like an ass...he broke a written agreement and he had the audacity to admit while the Hurricane was DECIMATING New Orleans he was out shopping. I guess he didnt' give a rats ass about "poor blacks" in New Orleans..UNTIL it was TOO late.
    Another example of how CLASS NOT COLOR was and remains the real issue!

    Failures occurred at ALL THREE LEVELS...it's about time everyone acknowledged that fact instead of completely blaming Pres Bush and the Fed Gov't.

    I suggest you read the article that appeared on Sept 11th in FortWayne.com. It offers up a clear timeline of the events..and paints a clear picture of the failures at every turn of all three levels of gov't..local, state and national.

    And I suggest strongly that YOU learn to UNDERSTAND what I wrote. My comparison to Michael had nothing to do with color...Michael considers himself more WHITE than BLACK.

    My comparison had to do with Time thinking that Kanye is the smartest man in POP music...when you consider that Jackson is the "Prince of Pop"...that comment is self explanatory...at least to anyone that actually uses his/her left and right brain

    My left and right brain agree that Michael Jackson has never been referred to as the Prince of Pop. He called himself the King of Pop.

  • At 2:15 PM, September 17, 2005, Blogger Huntress said…

    In 2003 Rolling Stone Magazine annoited Justin Timberlake as the KING OF POP.

    Michael was dethroned..and relagated to the lowly designation of Prince.

    The comparison still stands.

    So they did but the name never stuck. Michael continued to be refered to as the King of Pop. I am not sure Justin cared. After the success of his album Justified, he was more interested in rap music. Whether it is King of Pop or Godfather of Soul. All of these title are dreamed up by publicists.

    Michael Jackson was never political. The only picket line I ever saw him lead was some dustup he had with Sony Records. As for Kaye West, it would have been more appropriate to compare him to other artist who have made political statements at public gatherings to the consternations of pundits . . . Marlon Brando or Michael Moore. Artists are by nature risk takers who often push at the limits.

    If your referring to the Oscars...or People Choice awards...both Michael Moore and Marlon Brando( who rarely made any appearances anywhere) can use that platform to say what they will. Everyone in Hollywood has NO issue about using those platforms in that way. They only ask you keep the speeches to under 3 minutes!

    Once again....your right brain and left brain fail to comprehend something so simple as a SIGNED AGREEMENT and the difference between what Kanye did in this fundraising venue and what Michael MOOREON and most of the Hollywood fuckwits have done at other times.

    Not a difficult concept for the man alleged to be the smartest man in pop music to understand.

    I 've worked with actors and artists for the better of 18 yrs..so please don't even begin to walk down that path in an attempt to make yet another innane point.

    You started off with the bogus premise that it was a "black " issue..and you can't make that stick..so now you've moved onto the even more inane premise that "artists push the limits".

    Really SO when Janet Jackson pushed the limits and BARED her breast during the Superbowl...was it a "black" issue that resulted in her being vilified by EVERYONE including the NETWORKS who were forced to pay a HUGE fine for allowing that to happen..even though they allegedly had no idea of her intentions. Is it a "black" thing that Justin ( a white guy ) was FORCED to apologize on the show or not be allowed to take part in the Grammy's?

    Is it a "black" thing that NBC - a predominately WHITE network - was furious with Kanye for doing what he did..and ruining the event and for making that event about himself instead of about the victims. Is the entire network racist??

    The fact that you are incapable of understanding that what Kanye did was inappropriate, irresponsible, selfish, stupid, totally out of line, and in violation of an agreement made BY ALL those who participated, ALL OF WHOM WERE ARTISTS leaves me to conclude that you are as stupid as he is.

    And thats not a black thing...thats a "brain" thing.

    By the way...Michael Moore is NO artist..a liar yes,..but certainly no artist. Marlon Brando never took risks..he allowed others to speak for himself.

    And being a risk taker as an artist is one thing: it means taking a risk with YOUR art...NOT an event meant to raise funds to help those very people Kanye claims are "his" people - by that I assume he means "black" because he sure as hell as NOTHING else in common with them other than skin color- he wasn't being a risk taker with his music he instead became a risk taker at the expense of the "his " people. Selfish and stupid. ANd once again..I have no problem with Kanye calling a press conference and voiccing his opinion..preferably from New Orleans where it seems all other celebs manage to make their way to help out...however the moment ANYONE claims the President to be a racist...then he/she is a lying fool..and their true prejudices are coming through. I'd like Kanye to take a LONG HARD look at the BLACK Mayor Nagin's ineptitude and leadership failures..and call him a man who hates black people! Lets see if Kanye is truly as smart as Time magazine claims he is! Lets see if he has the balls to face the truth about an inept BLACK mayor and call him on it. I doubt it..because Kanye is a racist...he'd rather hold a white man accountable then hold a black man accountable for hiw failures. Racism comes in many forms. You want to play the race card..fine..I'll play it too.ANY black artist, politician, or man on the street that REFUSES to hold a Black Mayor accountable for HIS Failures hates white people. There...are you happy at having your inane thought process shoved back at ya. Im always amazed at people who always use the race card when it suits them..but fail to recognize the same arguement can be made when but in reverse.

    Your argument is senseless pointless and baseless..and your failing miserably at whatever point you are trying to make.

    When Kanye chooses to take a risk musically, I'll be there supporting him.

    When he chooses to risk an event meant to aid the very people he claims to care about then he deserves exactly what he got.

    Had any other artist regardless of skin colour pulled that same shit in that same manner they would also be at the receiving end of the same vitriol that Kanye got and deserved to get from the network, the Red Cross, and those watching the telethon, the media in general, and me!

    Then what bullshit would you be spewing out...I mean you sure as hell couldn't be using the bogus "its a black thing" excuse, now could you!

    Oh wait..I can just hear it now:
    You'd pull out the "right wing "card in lieu of the "race" card.
