Nagin on the couch: PTSD in wake of Katrina conspiracies
Let's get real here for a minute. Nagin's remarks were coming from a place much more real than that allowed for by the screaming faces on television. It was Nagin, after all, who tipped off Rev. Louis Farrakhan to the evidence that New Orleans' levees were intentionally sabotaged. It was Nagin who hinted four times in the days following storm that he had to watch his words concerning the federal government lest he be dispatched with by vengeful black-ops hitmen.
So, Nagin knows the levees were sabotaged, and knows the federal government abandoned New Orleans to watch it rot. And he's now had more than five months to figure out the degree to which both Katrina and Rita themselves were manipulated and steered by black-ops technology.
Considering all of this, Nagin's comments about "God" should probably be taken largely metaphorically. America as a nation is now so self-absorbed and slothful that it has permitted an insane criminal cabal to seize almost complete control of the reigns of government. So what has been happening as of late to America at the hands of that same criminal cabal can be seen as divine retribution in a certain sense. As the poet said, "karma's gonna get you / Gonna look you right in the face."
Nagin is also taking flack for saying that New Orleans will be a majority-black city again, that "God wanted it that way." This can be seen as a statement in opposition to the plans of everyone from the UNESCO biosphere goons to local real estate landsharks who want to remake New Orleans into a boutique theme park for adults surrounded by swamps built over the homes bulldozed at gunpoint. Nagin has been working with some of these "visionaries" to some degree, but his MLK-Day statements indicated the reservations he has.
Nagin's remarks have been seized upon political opponents nationwide. Also critical: other local leaders afraid that so baldly criticizing the Iraq war will undermine the Bush-bootlicking necessary to ensure a sufficient flow of federal dollars. In the wake of the federal levees exploding, most New Orleanians see little hope for rebuilding without a massive influx of federal dollars -- despite the fact that most of the federal dollars spent so far have gone into the black hole of FEMA or the coffers of crony corporations like Halliburton.

The levees WERE sabotaged. There were a lot of witnesses here in Louisiana who saw strange things happening around them. As usual, their accounts are called into question because they are black. And mostly white people scoff at it because they think it somehow implicates THEM anytime black people bring up racism. Moreover, Mayor Nagin didn't just mispeak. He needed a way to get New Orleans back into the center of media discussion. Which he did. As for Min. Farrakhan, why are whites so afraid of a man who doesn't even carry a gun, neither does his guards, and who has never threatened them? To be pro-black is not anti-white. He's for black self-empowerment and always has been. Why do white people have a problem with that? The same reason they have a problem with any nation of color who holds these views it seems. Did Iraq threaten America? Has Iran? Did the Indians prior to invasion? The Africans? The Australian Aborigines? The Pacific Islanders? The Caribbean Tribes? I rest my case.
I was born and raised in New Orleans by my grandmother who had lived in the Orleans Parish house since 1955. She always told me that if a storm hit New Orleans in just the right way, we would all be drowning like rats on a sinking ship. She also told me that in the mid 60s they were strengthening the levees by pushing the beams that supported the levee 20ft into the ground. Maybe even further, Im not sure. During the process, the frames of alot of the houses that immediatly surrounded the levees were cracking from the force of the beams. The residents began suing the union for the damage. They laid out so much money that the project funds were lost. Mind you, this happened in the middle of the project. The beams had not been pushed in all the way, so they were sticking out of the ground. So what did they do? They cut the beams level to the levee and left it alone ever since! This just so happened to be the areas where the levee's breached. So no I don't think that anyone sabatoged the levees. This did't just happen to black neighborhoods. One of the levees that broke was about 100 ft behind my grandmothers house, a very white neighborhood.
As for Mayor Nagan, to say that New Orleans will be a "Chocalate City" again is outragous. If it was a white mayor in a city that lost a majority of white citizens who said that it would be a "vannila city" once again, it would be ablsolute hell fire. We all need to put segregation behind us. We are all human. Rascism in 2006 and even the idea of segregation is just ridiculous. To call Washington racist because there wasn't fast enough action is also ridiculous. They are too preoccupied with war and oil and themselves to be thinking of anything else. Over $234,000,000,000.00 has been spent on the war in Iraq. Thats a $234,000,000,000.00 dollar investment for the bloodshed of innocent people. Im sure there are for constructive, and not destuctive things you can do with that money. Do you think for a second that the kind of people who could do something like that care about the city of New Orleans, I don't think so. Racism in the White house is not the problem. We could only wish the answer to all of this was that simple.
from page 211 of Jim Goads REDNECK MANIFESTO: (Louis Farrakhan)is absolutely right when he asserts that blacks should act in collective economic self-interests.He's also right when he says the federal government still systematically antagonizes blacks. It'a the stuff about blue eyed white devils being created six thousand years ago by an evil scientists named Yakub that concerns me. And it's the doctrine about a huge Negro-operated flying saucer named the Mother Wheel which is poised to annihilate all whites that makes me a little skittish. Farrakhans a nut about some things and he's right about others. But he's no more a messenger of God than Rochester the Butler was.
