As Hurricane Harvey Reaches Early Recovery Phase, Liberals Seek to Push Climate Change and Chivalry Initiative
Houston Texans Defensive End and 3 time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, JJ Watt never expected he could raise $15 million for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts directed to Houston. The city of Houston holds the pass rusher in high respects and mainstream circuits quickly took noticed as he ended up receiving major donations from stars such as Ellen Degeneres.
Watt said he already has a plan of action to begin using the money to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
“My first phase is what I’m doing is this weekend, my teammates and I have semi-trucks rolling in from out of town that we filled up,” Watt told Anderson Cooper. “We have about nine semi-trucks that are going to come to town. And we have those all filled with stocks, supplies, water, food, clothing, everything. So, we’re going to give that out this weekend.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones donated $1 million during a 90-minute telethon to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The telethon ended up raising over $2 million.
On Friday, Arnold Schwarzenegger said he contributed $100,000 to the effort in a video post.
“You can set new goals because you are the champion and I admire you. … You are the best.”
Though receiving an amounted level of criticism from the press as being ‘disheartening’ ‘non-compassionate’, President Trump donated $1 million of his own money to help the Harvey relief effort as he and Melania, who is still devastated by the attacks on her Stiletto walk to the helicopter to which she may never recover from, continually monitored the situation handing food and supplies to flood victims in Corpus Christi.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders announced the news at a briefing to reporters Thursday, days after record flooding from the storm in Houston killed at least 35 people and drove tens of thousands out of their homes.
“I am happy to tell you that [Trump] would like to join in the efforts that a lot of the people that we have seen across this country do. He’s pledging $1 million of personal money to the fund,” Sarah Sanders spoke with White House reporters.
“Thank you to all of the brave first responders and volunteers from around the United States helping with the ongoing rescue and relief efforts in Texas,” the president tweeted Thursday.
Celebrities that have helped the effort to support efforts of the Hurricane include the Kardashian family, who pledged $500,000, country singer Chris Young, who pledged $100,000, Kevin Hart, who challenged other celebrities to donate, contributed $50,000 and Chris Brown then gave $100,000. Beyonce, a Houston native, announced on Tuesday she will be working with her charity to assist those affected by the flooding in her hometown.
Additional high profile names that donated to the efforts include The Rock, DJ Khaled, Ellen Degeneres, Demi Lovato, Stephen Curry, Chelsea Handler, Cher, Hilary Duff, Sean Combs and Rob Lowe.
Unsurprisingly, some in the liberal media found it opportunist to use the devastation to resort to political gains.
First, came the undercoverage of a University of Tampa professor tweeting about Karma for the State of Texas in supporting President Trump and GOP in the 2016 election. The professor was rightly fired from UT.
Then there were the Climate Change activists using Harvey as an example to justify their notion that Conservatives reject the blatant science behind sea level rising.
Here is a Chris Cuomo spar with Kellyanne Conway in which CNN turned Harvey into a political jauntlet.
Cuomo pressed Conway if the administration had considered the Climate Crisis disaster and if they could use it to help prevent future disasters.
“You play amateur climatologist tonight and I will play professional helper to those in need” Conway responded to Chris Cuomo’s.
Not only was Cuomo the engineer of a Climate narrative coming out of Harvey but also Chivalrous disdain from the image coming out of the disaster. Liberals and Feminists voiced their displeasures at the images of men carrying women and children to safety wishing that the roles had been reversed somehow.
“The reality is that our culture is hungry for chivalry. But chivalry demands as a starting point an understanding that women are deserving of it. And that requires acknowledging that women are different. It requires a celebration of their differences, particularly those that enable them to bring the next generation of life into the world.”
The writer seemed to end the piece suggesting that it was fine Men can seek the heroic vitriolic roles but that woman were also heroic on equal proportions. No One is disagreeing woman are heroic, but let’s not change history this time.
Unfortunately if it weren’t for the brass Hollywood culture and Left-wing publications (Slate, Salon, Huffington Post, TYT), men wouldn’t think they were the problem for wars, the faux rape-culture, and misogynistic microaggressions.
And it doesn’t stop there. Vice Impact, the publication for the radicalized HBO Vice News, decided to use the Hurricane Harvey epidemic to promote Organizations that push left wing political agendas such as The Black Women’s Defense League and the Houston Undocumented Communities Flood Relief Fund devoted to social justice, Undocumented Immigrant Safety, Racism and Misogyny.
Vice might bring to the forefront causes that are helping with disaster relief, but why have a focus on helping undocumented communities rather than just regular underprivileged ones with American citizens? Are there lives more important than others?
So I ask, if you are passionate about helping the lives of flood victims, why push a political initiative? Isn’t it a time to come together as human beings and help each other regardless of color, creed, religion, or political affiliation?
Fortunately, the State of Texas did just that proving to be resilient in the face of danger and show it’s true tolerance as a red state.
