Iowa Versus Louisiana: Racist Propaganda or a Disruptive Truth?

Cross posted from WVW

Iowa Versus Louisiana

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a 'vanilla' Iowa , because that's the way God wants it?

Just a personal I watched the news coverage of the massive flooding in the Midwest with over 100 blocks of the city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa under water, levees breaking, and the attention now turned downstream for when this massive amount of water hits the Mississippi, what amazed me is not what we saw, but what we didn't see...

1. We don't see looting.
2. We don't see street violence.
3. We don't see people sitting on their rooftops waiting for the government to come and save them.
4. We don't see people waiting on the government to do anything.
5. We don't see Hollywood organizing benefits to raise money for people to rebuild.
6. We don't see people blaming President Bush.
7. We don't see people ignoring evacuation orders.
8. We don't see people blaming a government conspiracy to blow up the levees as the reason some have not held.
9. We don't see the US Senators or the Governor of Iowa crying on TV.
10. We don't see the Mayors of any of these cities complaining about the lack of state or federal response.
11. We don't see or hear reports of the police going around confiscating personal firearms so only the criminal will be armed.
12. We don't see gangs of people going around and randomly shooting at the rescue workers.
13. You don't see some leaders in this country blaming the bad behavior of the Iowa flood victims on 'society' (of course there is no wide spread reports of lawlessness to require excuses).

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago ?

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines ?

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a 'vanilla' Iowa , because that's the way God wants it?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

A note from Radarsite: This is probably the most racist article that Radarsite has ever published. The disturbing conclusions reached in this article are undeniably shocking and inflammatory. In some countries this essay would have automatically been banned as constituting Hate Speech. Even here in the USA statements such as these can -- and indeed have been -- considered grounds for legal action. These volatile words are justly considered dangerous and potentially lethal, likened to that old "Shouting 'Fire' in a crowded theater" analogy.

But are they true?

And, even if these statements are proven to be true, is it irresponsible journalism to report them? Does merely reporting the statistical evidence become in and of itself an incendiary act of racism? When do naked facts become racist propaganda? When does reporting the truth become a criminal act of disturbing the peace? Are we even interested in the truth, or merely interested in not making waves? Where are the lines drawn? And who draws these lines?

To call this subject explosive is a gross understatement. It is all but untouchable.

Some time ago Radarsite wrote about a series of articles that had appeared on the web purporting to be an examination of the out-of-control crime rates in Philadelphia. Not once in this entire series was the subject of race brought up. The biggest single societal upheaval in that city's three hundred year history was simply ignored. Instead the author referred to "these people" and their drug problems. And this, my friends, passes for investigative journalism.

Whether we are attempting to address the huge inner city black crime problem, or the pervasive black multi-generational welfare ethos, or the startling differences between the social effects of the floods in Louisiana or Iowa, or the undeniable rise in Houston's crime rate [see below] after warmly welcoming those black Katrina victims into their fair city, we have learned to think and to write in an ingenious new form of Doublespeak. In short, we have succumbed to fear -- especially fear of the truth. Anything, but the truth.

Sorry, but all cultures are not the same.

Like it or not, there are vast historical differences between, say, the Chinese culture and the African-American culture. Differences that go back thousands of years. Major differences between their attitudes towards family, education, work ethos, etc. To attempt to ignore these obvious facts is worse than delusional; it is cowardly and ultimately self-destructive.

Talking about these things only adds fuel to the fire --

This is the screen the PC activists hide behind. By openly discussing these controversial racial issues, they tell us, we are not helping to solve them, we are merely widening the gap. In other words, by speaking the truth we are only making matters worse. What is needed here is tolerance and understanding. An open mind and an open heart.

Tell that to the good folks in Houston.

How the hell can we ever be expected to deal with these enormous societal problems if we are forbidden to even discuss them, if we have to talk to each other in code, if we have to delete our thoughts before we have even thought them?

The issue of race and race relations has become one of the most important issues of our day. Because of the Democratic Presidential candidate, race has been pushed to the forefront of this campaign -- not, as we have seen, just here in America, but all over the world people are watching this drama unfold. Whether we refuse to acknowledge it or not, Barrack Obama has become a symbol for innumerable colored peoples around the world. A symbol of a black man rising up against that traditional post-colonial white oppression.

Today more than ever, we must be able to talk about race openly and without fear. The percentage of blacks who have already committed their votes to Barrack Obama have proven to the world that race matters; to try to continue to deny this obvious truth only worsens our chances to come together. But we can never come together so long as the black community -- and their PC, multiculturalist liberal enablers continue to avoid the harsh truths of the black predicament.

The degenerative state of the inner city black community is a black problem, and can only be solved by blacks. No amount of egocentric white guilt, or liberal white intervention, no amount of tricky euphemisms or outright denials will solve their problems for them.

Finally, I believe that almost everything in the above article is true. I believe that everything I have stated is true. If that makes me a racist, then so be it. I would rather be called a racist than a liar. -rg

Note: "Houston police say evacuees have been victims or suspects in about 20 percent of the city's homicides, more than double their percentage in the population."


  1. Well said Roger. But now the PC police will call you a racist and force your employer to fire you.

    America doesn't have a race problem. Blacks have a race problem. Everything that happens in the Black community is blamed on Race. It can't be their own fault. It can't be because they worship the pimp, drug dealer and gangster and not the doctor, preacher and teacher. It is the fault of the white establishment that Blacks have the highest unemployment rate, illiteracy rate and teen pregnancy rate. And the white establishment is suppose to pay them for it.

    I'm tired of paying for their mistakes. They don't get an education and they blame me for it. I'm not the one who didn't force them to learn. Their parents are. My children are literate and educated. I forced them to learn. They can't work. If they had an education they would be working. I didn't force them to drop out of school. They did that themselves.

    To correct one thing Roger. I have seen the Governor of Iowa break down when discussing the tragedy of the current floods in his state. It is only human nature to break down into tears for one's fellow man. I too cried. For the men and women who have lost their homes and businesses. For those few who have lost their lives and for a state that has suffered.

  2. Good stuff Findalis.
    I'm glad to hear that the Governor of Iowa broke down; it shows that he really cares.
    As for my being fired, I don't have to worry very much about that; I've been retired now for eight years. lol

  3. I thought I'd add this to the conversation.

    Black National Anthem sung at Denver Mayor's speech.

    The singer Rene Marie decided that the Star Spangled Banner wasn't good enough and changed it.

    Guess which candidate will probably make it official?

  4. Roger
    Great Expose of the two mind sets:
    The Whiny Big Nanny State of the generational expected "hand out" while doing nothing for themselves..
    And the Old Fashioned American Mind set of " I Take care of Myself..."
    No racist.. FACT!

    Regarding the Sicko in Denver...Is this what we can Expect in terms of " change" ? SCARY THOUGHT but well deserved by Denver Liberal pOLITICS.. Taste the Future..
    again No racism .. FACTS and screw PC!

  5. Fantastic post Roger! We who survived Hurricane Katrina here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast have known the truth since day one.

    My town Biloxi, only an hour and a half drive from NO was destroyed. If you haven't heard of Biloxi I'm not surprised, we weren't a high priority here in a Red state/ mostly white area such as this to the media and DemoRats.

    We didn't fit the victimhood model just as Iowans don't. I have friends who live in NO and it's amazing the difference in their survival compared to the black community. They didn't wait for the Gov't to come and get them and they didn't loot either, Hmmmm.

    I'm a former USAF Special Operator, and in the aftermath of the storm I saw USAF Spec Ops helicopters flying along the coastline towards NO. I had noticed that not much later the helos were flying back towards the base at Hurlburt Field,FL.

    A few days later when my cell phone was working again, I called my old unit and talked to one of my buddies. He said they had flown over with Pararescuemen and supplies, but had to turn around about an hour later to go back and put their guns back on the helos(50 cals and mini guns)because they were being shot at.

    That should tell everyone everything they need to know.

    Everyone saw black NO cops looting in stores in uniform! What does that tell you?

    New Orleans was a 3rd world city before Katrina ever came along, and the majority of it's inhabitants behaved accordingly.

    Two months ago our Gov. Haley Barbour (R) addressed all of FEMA and MEMA here in Biloxi. He gave a great speech with the media present as well as black employees of course.

    Toward the end of his speech he said, "Mississippi isn't into whining and victimhood" didn't make the national media. It was electric in there when he said that. (I love that guy.)

    And Roger, since I've become a blogger I've been called a fascist, a nazi, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, bigot and intolerant. I've long ago decided that considering the sources, I will wear those names like a badge of honor because I must be doing something right.

    The era of 'white guilt' is coming to an end.

  6. Most fascinating.

    We concur with Findalis: "America doesn't have a race problem. Blacks have a race problem."

    The poisonous fiction of "scientific racism" - the notion that sects of humaity are qualitatively different from one another - was abandoned by nearly all by 1965 thanks largely to one Martin Luther King.(The content of our character.)

    The tragic legacy of "racism" mainfests itself today not so much in the occassional ignoramous bigot, but in the anti-culture that pervades the "black community." Convinced by the liberal plantation that they have no chance at empowerment through legitimate means, "black leaders" have propagated the notion that people of color are helpless victims intrinsically, who will "get paid" only by illigitimate means.

    This is slavery of the soul. White liberals who support this mindset are complicit in its advance.

    Identifying when and where an individual or a culture is going wrong is not racism. In fact, it is love. Love and respect for the dignity of one's fellow man. If and when we lose sight of this entirely, we are through.
