Fox News, Republican Candidates, could not care less about the Flint water crisis

Like us on Facebook:

Despite the fact that last night’s GOP debate took place in Detroit, Michigan, nominees spent mere moments discussing the Flint water crisis and what is means for the children and families of Flint, Michigan. The only question about Flint was directed to Marco Rubio, where he stumbled through a non-answer answer. “The politicizing of it I think is unfair, because I don’t think that someone woke up one morning and said, ‘Let’s figure out how to poison the water system to hurt someone,’ Rubio said. “All of us are outraged by what happened. And we should work together to solve it.” Indeed, Marco, think of the poor government that poisoned the water supply, not the children dealing with lead poisoning!

He was the only candidate to be asked a question in regards to Flint. ThinkProgress reported that the entire discussion, including the time spent asking the question, lasted only two minutes. It’s obvious now that this is an issue that the right wing simply does not care about, and that they have easily accepted the reality of poisoned children, especially after repeated calls to disband the Environmental Protection Agency.

On the Detroit front, Ted Cruz wasted no time blaming the downfall of the city and its school system on liberal leadership. That’s certainly politicizing an issue, is it not?

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
