Cat 4 Hurricane Ida Barrels Towards Gulf Coast

Residents of the Gulf Coast begun evacuating as Category 4 Hurricane Ida is set to hit land Sunday evening. Left-wing outlets are complaining about the hurricane’s effects on inequality and climate change.


Hurricane Ida has strengthened into a Category 4 storm while barreling toward the Gulf Coast.

  • Vox connected the potential damage of Ida to the struggles of Gulf states in containing the coronavirus, suggesting the hospital systems are already strained. They took the opportunity to rail about America’s “unequal access to health care” in a report about a hurricane. 
  • Slate compared Ida to Katrina more favorably, quoting a New Orleans official saying the city’s storm infrastructure has “greatly improved” since 2005. 
  • You can’t talk about hurricanes without at least one left-wing outlet bringing up the boogeyman of climate change. Mother Jones argued weather is getting more extreme because of global warming and to expect more “disasters that our existing infrastructure” cannot withstand.



Author’s Take

One does not need a crystal ball to know that some faculty lounge blog like Mother Jones or Vox would write about social inequality or climate change. The sun rises in the east, sets in the west, and liberals will blame everything on inequality and climate change.
