Hurricane Relief Gets Political

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 14, 2017

         WHY MUST EVERYTHING BE POLITICAL? WHY CAN’T HURRICANE RELIEF BE NONPARTISAN?

         LAST NIGHT THERE WAS A TELETHON TO RAISE MONEY FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THE RECENT HURRICANCES. STEVIE WONDER SET THE TONE WHEN HE SAID, “ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THAT THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS GLOBAL WARMING MUST BE BLIND OR UNINTELLIGENT.” WONDER IS BLIND PHYSICALLY AND IS NOT A NOTED CLIMATOLOGIST.

         WONDER WASN’T THE ONLY CELEBRITY WHO TURNED COMPASSION INTO LIBERAL DOGMA. BEYONCE CONTRIBUTED A VIDEO. SHE SAID: “DURING A TIME WHEN IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO WATCH THE NEWS WITHOUT SEEING VIOLENCE OR RACISM IN THIS COUNTRY. JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT COULDN’T POSSIBLY BE WORSE, NATURAL DISASTERS TAKE PRECIOUS LIFE, DO MASSIVE DAMAGE, AND FOREVER CHANGE LIVES.”

         “THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ARE PLAYING OUT AROUND THE WORLD.” SHE THEN IMPLIED CLIMATE CHANGE WAS BEHIND THE HURRICANCES, A MONSOON IN INDIA AND THE RECENT MEXICO EARTHQUAKE.

         IN 2005, KANYE WEST SAID DURING ANOTHER DISASTER RELIEF TELETHON THAT GEORGE W. BUSH DIDN’T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE. IF YOU’RE GOING TO CONTRIBUTE TO RELIEF EFFORTS, GIVE THROUGH YOUR CHURCH, OR TRUSTED CHARITY, AND IGNORE THESE RICH AND SPOLIED CELEBRITIES. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
