Professor Says Harvey Storm is Payback Because Texas Voted for Trump
Rarely do we find that when liberals say stupid things that they have to pay for their actions. But in the case of Kenneth L. Storey, stupid is as stupid does, and the University of Tampa got rid of stupid. John Lennon said it best, “Instant Karma’s gonna get you,” although Storey says he doesn’t believe in karma. I wonder if he does now:
The University of Tampa has fired a visiting assistant professor who suggested in a tweet that Hurricane Harvey‘s destruction is “instant karma” for Texas because it voted Republican.
Sociology professor Kenneth L. Storey posted the tweet and two responses on Sunday before removing the entire thread and his profile photo, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The original post, captured by conservative websites before it was removed, read, “I dont believe in instant karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesnt care about them.”
I realize that some conservatives have said some equally stupid things when it comes to natural disasters, but it’s refreshing to read a story where a liberal actually gets canned.
No one can hide from the internet.
What would Mr. Storey have said after Hurricane Sandy devastated New York? It’s one of the most liberal states in the union. It’s given us the Cuomos, Schumer, and Hillary. Was Sandy a warning for New Yorkers not to vote for Hillary if she ran for President?
What about California’s droughts, wild fires, and earthquakes? Is it because California went all in for Hillary in 2016?
Two can play the Karma game: Houston had a two-term lesbian mayor, pro-homosexual legislation, and a transgender bathroom policy that is still in effect. Or it could be that weather is a factor in places that are close to hurricane-prone areas.
Let’s not forget that the Global Warming crazies have come out of the woodwork blaming a weather system in a region where there have been similar weather systems since 1900. They’re justs as stupid, but today, it’s “science” to spout such nonsense. Real climate change would be a Hurricane Osama dump 50 inches of rain in the Sahara Desert.
After Katrina in 2005, we were told that there would be these types of storms every year. Harvey is the first in 12 years.
Here’s some Texas weather system history:
- The Great Galveston Hurricane was a Category 4 storm, with winds of up to 145 mph that made landfall on September 8, 1900, in Galveston, Texas, in the United States, leaving about 6,000 to 12,000 dead. It remains to the present day the deadliest natural disaster in US history.
- Hurricane Carla ranks as the most intense U.S. tropical cyclone landfall on the Hurricane Severity Index that affected Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Illinois, and other parts of the United States in September 1961.
- Hurricane Celia in July and August of 1970 was the costliest tropical cyclone in Texas history until Hurricane Alicia in 1983. The third named storm, second hurricane, and first major hurricane of the 1970 Atlantic hurricane season.
- Hurricane Alicia was the costliest tropical cyclone in the Atlantic since Hurricane Agnes in 1972. Alicia was the third depression, the first tropical storm, and the only major hurricane of the 1983 Atlantic hurricane season. It struck Galveston and Houston, Texas directly.
What’s changed since the Great Galveston Hurricane:
Stupid stuff abounds on Facebook and other media outlets. some people are praising the welfare state. If we didn’t have the government, who would take care of all the displaced people and wrecked businesses?
It’s one thing to debate how a natural disaster like the effects of Hurricane Harvey should be paid for; it’s another thing to argue for an every-growing wealth transfer system called the Welfare State that turns people into slaves and political zombies.
