From “FLOTUS” footwear to foot-in-mouth: Hurricane Harvey unleashes leftist lunacy

David MenziesMission Specialist

As Hurricane Harvey ravages Texas, the politicization of this natural disaster has also gained momentum, starting with critiques of Melania Trump’s shoes.

One of the worst examples of this loony left behaviour was a tweet from (now former) University of Tampa professor Kenneth Story.

Story expressed glee that Hurricane Harvey was causing carnage in Houston, musing that it was “karma” due to Texas voting Republican in the presidential election.

But not only did his tweet lack empathy, the very premise was wrong:

Harris County, which includes the City of Houston, actually went for Hillary, not Trump.

Alas, the tweet resulted in the professor losing his job, and while I’m not in favour of seeing someone fired for expressing their lunacy in the Twitterverse, unfortunately his apology was too little, too late.

In this day and age of the Internet and instant acts of stupidity, many disasters are man-made.

Al Peterson good point.
I wonder how much BLM and Antifa have given to the people affected? Zero would be my guess.

leftist insanity will reduce r the Dems to an irrelevant coastal rump party and their media wing to a red ink wasteland.

The lefties going nuts on this disaster just underlines to even more people that they are radically and vindictively out of touch. It’s the best way to get people thinking more conservatively.

Funny how the left despises God and those who believe in anything spiritual but then they quickly resort to that same realm to dump on other people who don’t see things their way. I guess 9-11 was God’s judgement on New York for being so liberal???

Was his firing also instant Karma? Just wondering.

Yea, the MSM, they’re all about the shoes and socks.

People from the Left are entitled to have their opinion, but are they qualified to give one.

One only has to look at Justin Trudeau for a good example of the Left Wing Mind Set.

It is the same as the regressive left, like Naomi Klein and some New Demoncrat MLA’s, stating Ft. Mac had received its due punishment last year. I think they were very disappointed that no one died in those fires, because the regressive left is the ultimate ambulance chaser when it comes to natural disasters. The left loves to see others suffer, hence their policies that promote human suffering.

Amazing to see all the lefties heads explode from Melania’s shoes to calling karma over most of Texas voting Republican to political cartoons mocking Southerners for believing in God – and all because of a hurricane.

Normal hardworking people are beginning to see the left for what it is as it goes into meltdown.
