Fire Fighters Arrive, FEMA Says: “Hand Out Fliers”

fireman picture at KatrinaWords… cannot convey just how upsetting this is. Are we to believe that FEMA is really this stupid. Fire fighters coming from all parts of the USA to help stop the suffering are put into 8 hour training seminars, which includes topics such as “sexual harassment”? HELLLLLOOOO. There. are. people. DYING. Right now, in the streets. Everyone is bitching in moaning how there are not enough troops, not enough supplies, and basically how they need more of everything, yet it is all right there! FEMA just wont’ let it in.

FEMA. You suck. You have been given every chance to save the people in this city. You are failing.

Private charities have offered you money. You’ve turned them away.

Private citizens have showed up with food. You’ve turned them away.

Private companies, like Walmart, have offered supplies like water and fuel. You’ve turned them away.

Citizens have tried to leave the FEMA concentration camps. You’ve turned them back… sometimes at gun point.

FEMA. You have failed. You have failed your mission. You have failed the American people who actually thought you might do something. YOU HAVE FAILED AT LIFE.

And now. Fireman show up at your door to save the few people that might be left alive and trapped in their houses, and you train them as PR agents to hand out fliers?

This is intolerable. I wouldn’t care so much if FEMA was just stupid. Private companies, organizations, and citizens have been outpouring support to make up the difference. So why is FEMA sabotaging everything? I refuse to believe that all of this is just incompetence. Cutting emergency phone lines is not an “accident” folks.

I will say this again, and will not take it back. FEMA. You have not only failed, but your actions demonstrate clear criminal intent. This is not an accusation I make lightly. Every upper level manager in your organization should be tried for treason.

Please spread the word people. This needs to end.

Update: Still not convinced? How about a quote from this article.

WASHINGTON (Sept. 7) – The government’s disaster chief waited until hours after Hurricane Katrina had already struck the Gulf Coast before asking his boss to dispatch 1,000 Homeland Security workers to support rescuers in the region – and gave them two days to arrive, according to internal documents.

Michael Brown, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, sought the approval from Homeland Security Secretary Mike Chertoff roughly five hours after Katrina made landfall on Aug. 29. Brown said that among duties of these employees was to “convey a positive image” about the government’s response for victims.

Well sir. You have a 10,000+ death toll coming your way. I’d like to see how “positive” you’ll feel after that.

  1. You can tack this onto this post as well…

    FEMA Blocks Photos of New Orleans Dead

    Excerpt:
    “We have requested that no photographs of the deceased be made by the media,” the spokeswoman said in an e-mailed response to a Reuters inquiry.

    The Bush administration also has prevented the news media from photographing flag-draped caskets of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq, which has sparked criticism that the government is trying to block images that put the war in a bad light.

  2. Excellent post. Unfortunately there are more and more rant posts due to this disaster. That is truly an indicator that the government has failed miserably in its primary task – protecting its citizens. Had this administration reacted properly, worked within the parameters of what they had PRACTICED for two years, we would not be having these discussions. But, they didn’t, so we are. Keep up the good work.

  3. Thanks Alan. I appreciate the kind words. Trust me, my blood pressure would be FAR lower and more healthy if I didn’t have to rant. But, to stay silent on this issue would be immoral. We are essentially watching murder of our own citizens, right in front of us, and people are too busy following their favorite baseball team.

    It’s the Roman Disease. Give them bread and circus, and they’ll care not that their own countrymen are being killed.

    cheers

  4. The politicians are all talking about not pointing fingers, but PRAY TELL, AM I THE ONLY ONE THAT SEES THE RESEMBLANCE BETWEEN THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT AND THE MIDDLE FINGER THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS GIVING THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY………..?????????????????????????

  5. Leigh,
    As I say time and time again… the government is not your friend.
    There are many that see the Cabal that our government has become. I suggest watching wingtv.net as your news (independent, holds no punches, well aware of how the world really works).

    later

  6. Rick, Many thanks for turning me on to Wingtv.net. In turn, I have gotten many people tuned onto the site and their reactions are all positive. I myself am astounded, enlightened, FRIGHTENED and ANGRY. Hopefully, the more people that know about the site, the more people will stop behaving like ostrichs and/or a flock of sheep being led to the slaughter…..Thanks again…Leigh

  7. What are you guys talking about? WingTV never covers news, they mostly attack other researchers, just watch their show and see. Now that I think of it, it’s probably the people from WingTv that posted the comments above! If you want better news than you’ll see on TV, listen to Air America; if you want the REAL news, listen to Alex Jones and check out PrisonPlanet.com and PropagandaMatrix.com.
