The Houston Chronicle reports how the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo uses callous ‘humor’ to depict the recent disaster in Houston as God’s punishment on the ‘nazis’ of Texas.
It’s interesting to note that not so long ago, in 2015, Charlie Hebdo’s offices were the scene of a gruesome terror attack by Moslems, angry about Charlie Hebdo’s affront to their Prophet. A dozen people there ended up dead.
Despite that massacre, the people who work for Charlie Hebdo persist in their reality-deficient leftist worldview, in which the only villains are ‘right-wing extremists’, and imaginary ‘neo-nazis.’
Charlie Hebdo’s ”satirists” have obviously never been to Houston (probably never even to the United States, except perhaps New York or L.A. — but those places are not American) because if they had been to Houston they might observe that the majority of Houston residents are not White, but represent just about every kind of ‘diversity’ imaginable. Blacks, including a large contingent of Katrina ‘refugees’ strategically relocated by a helpful government to Houston), many Mexicans and Central Americans (legal and illegal), Vietnamese, Chinese, and on it goes. Whites make up at most around one quarter of Houston’s population, at least Houston proper. And ‘neo-nazis’ are few and far between.
But reality and facts are of no interest to leftists, who live in a universe of their own imaginings, one created specifically to rationalize their political agenda, and their cult of diversity and “equality.”
The casualties of Harvey were demographically likely to have been people of color, not Whites, especially not the apocryphal neo-nazis dreamt up by Charlie Hebdo’s ethnomasochist, dhimmi satirists.
This attempt at satire is insulting to the people who have been killed or displaced or who are otherwise suffering because of hurricane Harvey. It’s cynical and insulting to the people of Houston, presuming to frame their misfortunes as some kind of ‘karma’, as leftist new-agers conceive it.
