I read 3 posts last night where the tornadoes were discussed, and in each more than one DU member made comments to the effect that the victims of the storms did not deserve to ask for help, because some, but not all, Republicans voted against Federal aid for Sandy Hook.

The gross cruelty of southern bashing is almost as great as the ignorance displayed of how many Dems live down here.

These comments were being made at the same time that a tornado hit 40 miles from where I was watching the storm, here in Ala.
ready to flee for my life for the safety of a neighbor's basement if needed.
One of the neighbors is a Republican, the other is a Dem.
the Dem neighbor was gone last evening.
Which of you Southern bashers would tell me to NOT seek shelter in the Republican homeowner's basement?


Hattisburg got hit last night.
The mayor is a Democrat and was the first African American Dem nominee for governor in Mississippi since the Reconstruction era.
In the 2008 election, 555,000 people of Mississippi voted for Pres. Obama.
Over half a million people.
Which of those do not deserve to get aid ????

In Alabama, 795,696, Dems or 38.36% of the population voted for Pres. Obama.
43% of people in my county voted for Obama.
Of the 46 homes which were destroyed last night in Alabama, close to where I live,
Which of those would you deny aid ????


I have been asked by more than one member to repost the links...
after some consideration, including the thought of not wanting to perpetuate the vile remarks,
I have decided to go ahead and link to the threads involved, by their comments, you will know who they are.
