Voice of the White House: top-level racism

Voice of the White House September 1, 2005 
TBR News.org - September 2, 2005 

"The terrible disaster in New Orleans was not unforeseen. In
spite of his too-little too-late bleatings, Bush personally
scrapped a multi-million dollar program to strengthen the
dikes around that flooded mass of tragedy but took the money
for his criminal war in Iraq.

We now see a genuine phenomenon with dozens of American
television reporters, on the ground and on the scene in New
Orleans and southern Mississippi, turning against both the
Administration and the governments of both Louisiana and
Mississippi for their utter failure to relieve the terrible
suffering of hundreds of thousands of trapped, starving and
sick citizens.

I would like to add something to the bubbling pot that might
cast a light on the disgusting official breakdown of rescue
and support. This afternoon, I was having lunch at the Cosmos
Club out on Massachusetts Avenue. A good friend is a member of
the posh club (that once was the elegant town home of Sumner
Welles), and while at lunch, I was privy to a very vocal
conversation at one of the big round center tables in the club
dining room.

One man was giving an overview of the situation to a group of
his friends. The speaker was an undersecretary of an important
department, well-liked by Bush and often in the White House to
consult. The others ranged from an academic economist whose
writings can be seen in a right wing paper and a number of
Washington-based businessmen, all of whom are active and heavy
contributors to the Bush White House.

The loud one had obviously had a few drinks at the bar and
this is probably why he was not more discreet. The gist of his
comments was horrible to contemplate and it sounded like a top
Nazi discussing Jews.

It is well known here that the Bush family and many of the top
advisers at the White House are racists but instead of
detesting Jews, in this case, they all detest blacks. Their
rationale, aside from their view of racial superiority, is
that blacks are all "welfare queens, unwed mothers and drug
dealers." It was the very firmly stated view of the host that
it was better for everyone that New Orleans was under water
for the time being.

In that way, we were told (and I was not the only person in
the dining room who heard all this), this served to "chase out
the niggers" and permit Bush-supporting businessmen from
buying up the soon-to-be condemned sodden houses for five
cents on the dollar from friendly insurance companies (which
one of them was a CEO of) and put up an enlarged and very
profitable combination of industrial park and office building
section. The money for this would, naturally, come from
government grants which a terrified Congress (Mid Term
elections are coming) had just voted for and the contracts to
demolish the wrecked low-income slums would go, as a no-bid
contract, to another stellar Bush supporter.

As for the refugees, our table of proto-fascists all commented
on the fact that most of them were on welfare and probably all
voted Democratic so they could all be shipped to California or
Chicago at the public expense and allowed to occupy less
valuable public housing there.

This conversation went on in a similar vein for some time and
it was difficult for both myself and my host to refrain from
making nasty comments or, for that matter, to enjoy our meal.
These people are greedy and purely evil and I am <>positive<>
from the overall conversations that Bush is conversant with
this attitude and has no intentions of interfering with it.

He had an unparalleled opportunity to revive his sagging
opinion polls and make an appearance in New Orleans, naturally
with an army of sycophants and eager media, and be seen (in a
safe placeŠprobably in Baton RougeŠbecause the desperate black
citizens of New Orleans have taken to shooting at people and
Bush is scared to death of violence) holding a small and
photogenic black child whilst comforting its mother. Instead,
Bush, typically, opted to sail overhead in his luxury Air
Force One and having seen the inundated city below, retired to
his small but elegant dining room for a nice lunch with some
of his top aides.

I should also note here that Bush now has added the Mayor of
New Orleans and a half a dozen irate and very articulate news
reporters to his hate list because they have <>dared<> to
criticize him to a very large audience.

Maybe this time, the Democrats will organize and nail him and
his friends to a wall somewhere and then open the flood gates
and watch them drown like the rats that they are."
