That was my reply to the moonbat on line at the Hitchens Galloway debate when she ranted on about how KKKatrina was Bush's fault.
Maggies's Farm has a searing portrayal of what really happened.
In my opinion, nothing did more damage to American poor, including the black poor, than the 1970s "War on Poverty," and we continue to reap what was sown then - seeds of helplessness, dependency, excuse, grievance, and entitlement - the worst possible lessons for proud, free people in America. Far more lives down the drain than a thousand hurricanes. Let's hope this older generation of black "leaders" will be ignored. And let's begin hearing voices from black leaders who have faith in their people and who respect their intelligence and abilities and pride.

Louis Farrakhan became the latest civil-rights demagogue to accuse government officials in charge of Katrina relief of saving whites at the expense of blacks. In a speech last weekend in Charlotte, NC, to promote his "Millions More March," Mr. Farrakhan said one of the New Orleans levees was intentionally "blown up" to divert flood waters from white to black neighborhoods. "I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach," he said.
Sounds like the minister's friend is Mr. Magoo. It's takes a lot of explosive power to make a crater that big, and the explosion would have knocked the levee and surrounding buildings sky-high. Timothy McVeigh's Oklahoma City bomb left a crater 28 feet in diameter. He used the equivalent of 4,000 pounds of TNT. Blowing a 25-foot deep crater in solid earth would take a whopping 200,000 pounds of TNT, according to University of Washington explosive simulations. An IED that size gets noticed in an urban neighborhood, as does the caravan of trucks needed to haul it in.
Mr. Farrakhan spreads rumor in fertile ground.
