Yes, I’m going to talk about Haiti again, and no I don’t care how tired you are hearing me rant about what’s happening there [read it here]. As long as there are people suffering and idiots like Bill O’Reilly feel the need to wax philoasstical about the country, I’ll be here to open my mouth. Speaking recently on his “Bold and Fresh Tour” which also features another well known conservative knuckle-dragger – Glenn Beck – O’Reilly made the argument that president Barack Obama in no way shape or form could possibly help Haiti.
Yep, according to O’Reilly, Obama couldn’t possibly help Haiti because, well, the south side of Chicago is no different than Haiti and obviously he couldn’t change things in his adopted hometown:
”If you’ve ever been to the South Side of Chicago, I mean, it’s a disaster. Alright? It’s like Haiti. It’s like — I’ve been to Haiti a couple times, and I support some charities there, but Haiti just never gets better no matter how much money you put in there because they don’t have a system.” (Source)
I haven’t been to the City of Chicago in ten years and yes I do have relatives there. But, er, um, I had no idea that it was that bad in Chi-town? The south side of Chicago like Haiti where before the earthquake a can of rice cost $8? And it’s that way because Barack Obama was a failed politician from that very city?
Well now I’m confused. I’m confused because last week the director of the anti-immigration org Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), said in arguing about refugees being brought to the U.S. said that Haiti was a “screwed up” country. But checkout his reasoning as to why Haiti is as “screwed up” as he says it is:
“My guess is that Haiti’s so screwed up because it wasn’t colonized long enough…But, unlike Jamaicans and Bajans and Guadeloupeans, et al., after experiencing the worst of tropical colonial slavery, the Haitians didn’t stick around long enough to benefit from it. (Haiti became independent in 1804.). And by benefit I mean develop a local culture significantly shaped by the more-advanced civilization of the colonizers.” (Source)
Uh-huh, Haiti is a jacked up country because they basically fucked themselves by kicking the French out by fighting for their freedom from slavery. They would have been better off, or would have become better cultured if only they were more patient and endured as did the other “good negroes” who came from Africa in other Caribbean countries.
So why are you confused RiPPa?
Well, is the south side of Chicago “just like Haiti,” and or just as “screwed up” because those Negro residents weren’t colonized enough? Even after 400yrs? I mean, is it that, or the fact that Barack Obama wasn’t a good enough slave owner in Chicago? Aww to hell with trying to find out or answer those questions. The truth is: these comments and thoughts are just more of the same from a couple of racist bastards who just so happen to be the descendants of European colonizers who refuse to acknowledge their part in history. Here’s to hoping that somehow his tour bus mysteriously breaks down on Chicago’s south side this year and he gets…
