Political Hyenas of Haiti Earthquake


Hyenas are hunters and scavengers. Many cultures regard hyenas negatively because they are known to scavenge graves for food. The hyena digestive system is so highly acidic that it digests not just flesh, but teeth, horns, and bones.
There is a breed of political hyenas. Human in appearance, they are vile predators who scavenge human deaths and tragedies for political gain. In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, political hyenas have crawled out of the woodwork, making political hay out of Haiti’s human miseries. Below are three political hyenas. No doubt, there are and will be more.
The first is Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla), who was on MSNBC Live yesterday morning, and essentially says that Haiti and its current plight is America’s fault. She was asked about the poor infrastructure in Haiti which makes rescue and relief difficult. This is Schultz’s response: 

“You should think of the most primitive environments, the most primitive living conditions that you can imagine. It is wrong, especially in a region as prosperous as this one, for us to continue to allow the desperate situation that exists in Haiti to continue.”

Ummm, so it is now our fault that 80% of the population of Haiti live in poverty, that 1 in 10 Haitians below the age of 40 are HIV-infected, that new graves must be guarded to prevent bodies from being stolen for voodoo rituals, that the political leaders of this former French colony that has been independent for 200 years were/are brutal corrupt dictators who stole, raped, murdered, and even reputedly eaten their enemies? [Source] What is Schultz suggesting? That the United States should take over this hell hole and make it our 51st state welfare case?

Then there is TV evangelist Pat Robertson who said that “something happened a long time ago” which people “don’t want to talk about.” Robertson claimed that Haitians (who? how many? when?) “made a pact with the Devil” to free themselves from France’s colonial rule. “Ever since then, they’ve been cursed by one thing or another. They’re desperately poor” in contrast to prosperous Dominican Republic, which occupies the Eastern half of the very same island of Hispaniola in which Haiti is. [Dominican Republic’s per capita GDP is $4,952, four times that of Haiti’s. – Ed.]

I love what Frank J. of IMAO said about Robertson: “God makes Pat Robertson say stupid things because of his pact with the devil” and “Bad things only happen to sinners, i.e., everyone.”
Lastly, there is Barack Obama. Unlike his dawdling response to jihadist Abdulmuttalab’s failed attempt to blow up Northwest flight 253 on Christmas Day, Obama responded to the Haiti earthquake within 24 hours. As reported by FOXNews, Obama said the following:

This morning I want to extend to the people of Haiti the deep condolences and unwavering support of the American people following yesterday’s terrible earthquake. We are just now beginning to learn the extent of the devastation, but the reports and images that we’ve seen of collapsed hospitals, crumbled homes, and men and women carrying their injured neighbors through the streets are truly heart-wrenching. Indeed, for a country and a people who are no strangers to hardship and suffering, this tragedy seems especially cruel and incomprehensible.

In an e-mail to me, FellowshipOfTheMinds member Tom in NC noted how unusual it is that a President of the United States refers to a natural disaster as “cruel.”
To be cruel is to lack compassion for and derive pleasure from another’s suffering. To be cruel is also a deliberate intentional act. Impersonal Nature can’t be cruel; only thinking sentient beings can be cruel. I agree with Tom in NC: Obama is saying God is cruel to have “inflicted” this earthquake on Haiti.
Gosh, I don’t remember Obama calling Fort Hood jihadist murderer Nidal Hassan “cruel,” do you? Nor do I recall Obama calling the 9-11 terrorists “cruel,” do you?

How did Rep. Schultz ever get elected? It couldn’t have been because she such an eloquent speaker. Did I hear her say “a 7.3 hurricane”?I feel we should give the Haitians some aid, but not support them.

Eowyn, thanks for posting my thoughts here, this administration and it’s minions are always looking for someone or something to pin the blame on. Saw this little nugget on Drudge:

I knew a recent graduate from a well known seminary. He had all the religious symboling down pat. As he cradled his Bible under his right arm, his right thumb pointed to “HOLY”. When he informed me that he was going to Haiti and really straighten that mess out, I told him and his partner “You are not equipped to handle that situation. You are going to come up against powers FAR beyond your comprehension”. . . “You will be fortunate to get out of there alive”.He scoffed and raised his nose and marched off. I never did see him… Read more »

You know I disagree with your assessment of Obama…well, I won’t get into THAT right now! One can’t look at the photos of the victims of this tragedy without wanting to do something. And sadly, there are people out there who exploit the misery of others just to line their own pockets. GuideStar is a great source of info regarding charities. You can find out what a charity spends on administrative costs, how much its top executives earn, etc. Registration is free. https://www2.guidestar.org/Home.aspx For John: It may sound cliche, but one person CAN make a difference, and a group of… Read more »

Montelimar, I Totally agree with you> If that were not true, then we would not be working in the areas we do work, however, you had better go there with the proper intent, and stay out of things you should not mess with directly. We were told by one of the natives “those people will never change”, but a few years later he stated “I sure don’t know what you people are doing, but your people do their jobs well, and I don’t have to keep things locked up all the time and watch their every move”. By all means,… Read more »
