Why Haiti is a Hellhole
Posted by Gregory of Yardale at January 15, 2010 7:56 AM
Angry Haitians set up roadblocks with corpses in Port-au-Prince to protest at the delay in emergency aid reaching them after a devastating earthquake, an eyewitness said.
So, in these people's minds, it makes sense to protest that you aren't getting aid fast enough... by blocking the people from getting aid to you.... with corpses!
But this is what the moonbat left has indoctrinated into them. "Don't help yourselves. The way to get anything is demand that others take care of you, and then bitch and complain about the quality of the help you receive."
This is the same mindset that had people in New Orleans who could have walked an hour to higher ground complaining about getting flooded out after Katrina. This is the same mindset that produces near-riot conditions when people queue up from handouts in Detroit.
And it's all aided and abetted by the moonbat mindset of parochialism; that it's compassionate to keep the poor of Detroit and New Orleans and the impoverished of Haiti dependent on handouts and foreign aid; and that because of some imagined grievance, that they are not only entitled to endless welfare, but have a right to be indignant if it is not delivered at a level or in a manner that is satisfactory.
In short, this is what happens when people are taught to protest in order to get what they want, instead of taught to work for it. And that's what makes people so stupid they actually block the roads when people are trying to help them in the aftermath of a disaster.
