Haiti a year after earthquake, but why so few stories on the flooding in Queensland?

Haiti a year after earthquake, but why so few stories on the flooding in Queensland?


Why does nobody care about the Biblical flood in Australia?

You’ll hear a lot about Haiti and the solemn one year anniversary of the earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince in that already devastated country.

The entire western world will cry crocodile tears over the status of Haiti, where uncleared debris, cholera outbreaks, witchcraft and lynchings are a way of life.

The Dominican Republic lacks the capacity for sharing in those tears and empathy for the Haitians, deporting illegal immigrants from there at an incredible rate:

Dominican Republic – The Dominican Republic’s top immigration official said Monday the nation will keep deporting Haitian migrants despite criticism by human rights groups of stepped up efforts to catch illegal border crossers.

The government sent roughly 1,000 Haitians back to their earthquake-shattered homeland last week, deploying soldiers and immigration officials to set up border patrols and surprise checkpoints last week along highways, asking people aboard public buses and vans for their papers.

Dominican immigration director Sigfrido Pared said Monday that the government is compelled to resume immigration enforcement to prevent the flow of illegal Haitian migrants since last January’s earthquake and to stop the spread of cholera, which has killed more than 3,000 people in Haiti and sickened about 150 in the neighboring Dominican Republic.

He also said the crackdown is urgent “because a massive entry of Haitians always occurs in January.”

The state of Haiti in 2011 is incredibly sad, just as it was in 2001, 1991, 1981, 1881, and 1801. Earthquake or not, Haiti will always be a nation without hope.

But why are so few people talking about the Biblical flood the size of California in Australia? Perhaps the horrific natural disaster is happening to the wrong kind of people, one that Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) garner no points from helping with aid or telethons.

Just like the Nashville flood of 2010, the incredible flood in the Queensland state hasn’t sparked anarchy or chaos, nor an outpouring of tears from DWLs.

What is the difference between Nashville and New Orleans, Haiti and Australia again?
