Progressives Blame Capitalism and the GOP for Hurricane Harvey, Not Weather

Instead of spreading the message of unity as the state of Texas recovers from historic flooding, members of the left continue to take jabs at the notoriously conservative state of Texas.

Kenneth Storey, now a former visiting sociology professor at the University of Tampa, tweeted: “I don’t [sic] believe in Karma but this kinda [sic] feels like if for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them.

According to Fox News, when someone replied to Storey’s tweet, Storey suggested “… good people there need to do more to stop the evil their state pushes,” he wrote. “I’m only blaming those who support the GOP there.” When asked if Trump supporters in Florida deserve what Texans are experiencing, he replied, “Yep, those who voted for him here deserve it as well.”

The university quickly fired Storey, condemned his comments, and issued a statement that said: “We condemn the comments and the sentiment behind them, and understand the pain this irresponsible act has caused. As Floridians, we are well aware of the destruction and suffering associated with tropical weather. Our thoughts and prayers are with all impacted by Hurricane Harvey.”

Storey apologized Monday and immediately deleted his Twitter account following the backlash.

Another radical member of the left, Kate Aronoff, who writes for In These Times magazine, blamed Hurricane Harvey on capitalism, tweeting:

Luckily, members on Twitter were there to counter her nonsensical claims. It didn’t take long for CNN to blame the storm on climate change, or for the Young Turks to begin a petition calling for federal funds to be withheld from major oil companies in the region.

Today on Think Tank the panel discussed why progressives feel the need to politicize every natural disaster.

“Well, It’s funny because you know when she wrote that tweet — or story, she thought she was making an intelligent point,” added Caleb Parker.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
