Hurricane Katrina: Grand Old Plot by the Grand Old Party...

Like it wasn’t bad enough that Spike Lee interjected the idea that Ninja-Bush crept into the 9th Ward and planted bombs on the levees in The Big Easy...and worse that people in that community seemed to take his lunacy to heart... (If the government would go far enough to destroy infrastructure to wipe out a certain race or low socio-economic population...would they have any trouble picking Spike off for exposing it?)

Now, delinquent (yet somehow re-elected), Mayor Ray Nagin has decided to expand the aberration and suggest this wasn't just a plan to rid New Orleans of poor people, but a long term blue-print to take so long in the rebuilding that Black people wouldn't come back and the voter base would change...

"...New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin has suggested that the slow recovery and rebuilding of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina -- which has prevented many black former residents from returning -- is part of a plan to change the racial makeup and political leadership of his and other cities.

"Ladies and gentlemen, what happened in New Orleans could happen anywhere," Nagin said at a dinner sponsored by the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a trade group for newspapers that target black readers. "They are studying this model of natural disasters, dispersing the community and changing the electoral process in that community..." (source)
