The BBC’s still at it, attacking Trump for his ‘failure’ to help Puerto Rico. No doubt the BBC sending a Muslim reporter there adds to the mix…Aleem Maqbool.
Not a single word in praise of the effort to help Puerto Rico from the BBC on FOOC…the entire piece was one long negative protrayal of events….apparently Trump has forgotten Puerto Rico, well not quite… only enough to treat them as second class citizens. You’d have no idea that 10,000 personnel were sent from the mainland and that enormous amounts of aid have come in as well as a huge effort to get the infrastructure back on track…no idea that it was difficult to get aid in initially as the island was completely destroyed with no roads, bridges, airports or power…kind of makes it difficult to move around the island and to fly in immediate aid if there were no landing strips.
Maqbool told us that there was no planning for the hurricane by Trump and Co….er….the reality is a completely different picture….
Rossello and other officials praised the federal government for planning its response before the storm hit, a contrast with what Puerto Rico has long seen as the neglect of 3.4 million Americans in a territory without a vote in Congress or the electoral college.
Large amounts of federal aid began moving into Puerto Rico on Saturday, as the island tried to recover from a battering by hurricane Maria. Local officials praised the Trump administration’s response.
The aid effort quickened with the opening of the island’s main port in the capital, San Juan, allowing 11 ships to bring in 1.6 million gallons of water, 23,000 cots, dozens of generators and food. Dozens more shipments are expected in upcoming days.
The federal aid effort is racing to stem a growing crisis in towns left without water, fuel, electricity or phone service. Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) said they would take satellite phones to all of Puerto Rico’s towns and cities, more than half of which were cut off.
The island’s infrastructure was in sorry shape long before Maria struck.
And here is the official FEMA explanation of its preparations….
Maqbool does what all of Trump’s devoted enemies do and twists his words as he attacked him for saying Katrina was a ‘real’ catastrophe….they then go on to claim he meant hurricane Maria was nothing to worry about. But that’s a complete lie and misrepresentation of what he said and meant. The word ‘real’ was not meant to mean genuine or authentically substantial, he used the word as any normal person would to emphasise how bad Katrina was…’real bad’, its colloquial, he did not mean to diminish the severity of Puerto Rico’s disaster and indeed went on in the next sentence to make that clear. He then went on to further explain by praising Puerto Rico for saving lives….Katrina had killed hundreds if not thousands whilst only 16 [not exactly the genocide that the hard-left mayor of San Juan dramatically claimed Trump was inflicting upon Puerto Rico] or so at the time were killed in Puerto Rico…Trump put that down to good reactions by Puerto Rico. Not that he got any praise in return from the likes of the BBC. Here’s his words….
“Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here, with really a storm that was just totally overpowering, nobody’s ever seen anything like this. What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud. Everybody around this table and everybody watching can really be very proud of what’s taken place in Puerto Rico.”
Why send a prejudiced reporter all the way around the world to bring us a report that he could have cut and pasted [maybe he did] from CNN or one of those other fake news outlets.
The BBC’s News Quiz joined in of course…they never let the facts get in the way of a good bit of bigotry. Apparently Trump didn’t help because he is a ‘slow-witted racist’.
The News Quiz…lol…what a joke…a bunch of leftwing racist half-wits who just regurgitate their bar room student witticisms about May needing a p45. V.funny.
Jeremy Hardy told us that Boris’ reference to the ‘roaring British lion’ was all nonsense….. isn’t it the ‘Right’ that has taken up using the image he tells us [he wraps up the whole spectrum in that…Right, Far Right, Nazis…of course if you’re to the right of Jeremy you’re probably still a Stalinist]. So that’ll be the Engand rugby team, the football team, the cricket team…
and oh yes the passport….along with the unicorn.
Of course Jeremy may not believe in the British Lion but he probably believes in the unicorn, a mystical beast of fantasy….just as he believes in Jeremy Corbyn. Dickhead.s
The funniest thing is that the BBC and the likes of Hardy sneer at Britishness and tell us there is no such thing, that we are a nation of immigrants with no national identity or loyalty…and yet they quickly tell us Muslims are definitely ‘British’, in fact Muslims are more proud of being British than the British…which kind of makes you ask does the BBC not then think of these proud Muslim ‘Brits’ as British?
Who knew Lefty Frank Skinner and the Jewish David Baddiel were in fact raging Nazis…..
