Comedienne, Dem Use OK Tornado For Agenda

“Daily Show” Creator Lizz Winstead: Oklahoma Tornado Meant for Conservatives

by Steven Ertelt | May 20, 2013

Moore, OK — As families and schoolchildren hunkered down in storm shelters to avoid a massive tornado today near Oklahoma City, a liberal “comedian” found time to use the disaster to attack conservatives.

Lizz Winstead (@lizzwinstead): "This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives." …

This is knee-jerk reaction of a liberal jerk.

This is the same Winstead who attacked Michele Bachmann on abortion and raises funds for Planned Parenthood.

Winstead tweeted an apology at approximately 7:00 p.m. ET.

Lizz Winstead @lizzwinstead: "Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained. Beyond sorry. #LetMeHaveIt"

Meanwhile, Ms. Winstead wasn’t the only political hack trying to make political hay out of the devastation.

Democratic Senator uses Okla. tornado for anti-GOP rant over global warming

Jeff Poor | May 20, 2013

While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming.

Whitehouse spent 15 minutes chastising GOP senators and justified his remarks by alluding to states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters.

“So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas. It hits Rhode Island with floods and storms. It hits Oregon with acidified seas, it hits Montana with dying forests. So, like it or not, we’re in this together.”

And never mind that according to the NOAA the 12 month period April 2012 to May 1 2013 had the least number of tornadoes on record.

Whitehouse went on to condemn the current Republican position on global warming, citing economic, environmental and diplomatic damages.

“You drag America with you to your fate,” he continued. “So, I want this future: I want a Republican Party that has returned to its senses and is strong and a worthy adversary in a strong America that has done right by its people and the world. That’s what I want. I don’t want this future. I don’t want a Republican Party disgraced, that let its extremists run off the cliff, and an America suffering from grave economic and environmental and diplomatic damage because we failed, because we didn’t wake up and do our duty to our people, and because we didn’t lead the world. I do not want that future. But that’s where we’re headed. So I will keep reaching out and calling out, ever hopeful that you will wake up before it is too late.”

But he’s not an hysterical alarmist, or anything. Still, we wonder if Senator Whitehouse was in 1975, when other doomsayers were claiming ‘global cooling’ was causing a record numbers of tornadoes?

From the Newsweek archives (a pdf file):

The Cooling World

By Peter Gwynne | 28 April 1975

… Last April, in the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded, 148 twisters killed more than 300 people and caused half a billion dollars’ worth of damage in 13 U.S. states.

To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather…

By the way, notice that they were also calling this also called ‘climate change.’

    I used to have a copy of the National Geographic from this same era that proclaimed on it’s front cover: “The Coming Ice Age”. I gifted the mag to my nephew to remind him that “true” science has nothing to do with opinion or concensus.

    As for these hacks, I hope a hundred pound hailstone falls on their heads.

    You can only wish she’d travel to OKC and crack jokes with parents whose children were crushed to death by their school being ripped apart, crying out for Mommy or Jesus as they died.

    I think Moore, OK police would stand by and watch approvingly at what followed.

    Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (Communist, RI): “So, like it or not, we’re in this together.”

    Then maybe it’s time we went our separate ways.
