Is the Left to Blame for the New Orleans Disaster?

Is the Left to Blame for the New Orleans Disaster?

On September 8, the Christian Wire Service reported that Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, author of How The Black Leadership Exploits Black America, said:

"If Black folks want to blame someone for this tragedy they only need to look in the mirror. Mayor Nagin has blamed everyone else except himself. The Mayor failed in his duty to evacuate and protect the people of New Orleans. Our prayers go out to the families of the deceased. Hopefully this will help Black people realize the folly of depending on the government or leaders and serve as a notice to avert future tragedies in other cities."

There was a four-day warning of a category five hurricane and that levees could only withstand category three hurricanes yet Mayor Ray Nagin didn’t evacuate everyone out of the city. Then he let 800 school and city busses become waterlogged that could have helped transport thousands out of the city.

Now that thousands are dead, columnist Debra Saunders says Mayor Nagins announced a second "pending mandatory" evacuation where he now seems serious about evacuating everyone.

It appears that New Orleans and Louisiana Democrat government leaders are also to blame for the levee failure.

According to a September 7 report by Jeff Johnson, Senior Staff Writer:

"[R]esearch into more than ten years of reporting on hurricane and flood damage mitigation efforts in and around New Orleans indicates that local and state officials did not use federal money that was available for levee improvements or coastal reinforcement and often did not secure local matching funds that would have generated even more federal funding."
