Proles to the rescue

with 21 comments

Recreational vehicles — airboats, Jet Skis, motorized fishing boats — have rushed to the aid of people trapped in their homes, steered by welders, roofers, mechanics and fishermen wearing shorts, headlamps and ponchos. The working class, in large part, is being saved by the working class.

If you want to be rescued from a flood, it’s a lot better to have prole Texans for neighbors than lesbian college professors from San Francisco.

I am pretty sure that the volunteer rescuers are primarily Trump voters.

Before the storm made landfall I made the following prediction:

I predict that the mainstream media will use Hurricane Harvey as an excuse to lecture us about “climate change.”

That prediction turned out to be 100% true.

  1. Proles tend to live in areas that are prone to natural disasters and SWPLs usually do not.

    Name one city where SWPLs congregate in large numbers that takes a constant brunt from mother nature.

    You have a few SWPL outliers in reddy type states like Austin, Ann Arbor and Chapel Hill, but these towns rank bottom where SWPLs want to call home. Furthermore, they aren’t hurricane prone or tornadoville.

    • Geographically speaking, SWPLs live in large numbers almost nowhere. Clinton won 57 counties to Trump’s 3,084, and many of those Clinton counties were full of NAMs. So if a disaster hits a random place on the map, that place will probably not contain many SWPLs.

      As it happens, you’re mostly alluding to the Gulf Coast. And like most places, it has few SWPLs.

      In any case, CA gets more than its share, and we can surely expect a massive earthquake near a population center sometime this century.

      • Outside of California on the Left Coast, Portland and Seattle are very SWPL cities.

      • And JS: regarding Seattle and Portland: in July 2015 the New Yorker published a piece titled “The Really Big One.” It’s about the Cascadia subduction zone. The piece won a Pulitzer. I recommend reading it.

      • Looking at the map of Meriprolestan when it comes to wealth concentration, there are a few scant regions of the country of such nature. You know where the money is really found, only in the Northeast and parts of the Left Coast. The rest of the nation is just a wasteland of paupers — given how value transference and rent seeking capitalism has sucked the soul out of the nation.

    • JS, yes, you’re right. San Francisco is in no danger from natural disasters.

      None whatsoever.

  2. The dirty literal secrets about liberals. . .they are sneering selfish hypocrites and elitists and bloodthirsty fascists (for real) at heart. Never doubt it.

    • I agree. When liberals do volunteer work, it’s about what they think will look good. For liberals, it’s all about virtue-signalling.

  3. I think Houston voted Democrat. Seem to be a lot of blacks and Hispanics being rescued by white proles who have come in from further afield. The “Cajun Navy”. Maybe this will tone down all the racist stuff.

      Never.

    • Some cruel jesters who support the alt-right and Trump’s deportation of migrants, made online comments about the hurricane being divine providence for ICE agents to grab anyone deemed illegal ripe for deportation.

  4. What do people here think about the decision not to evacuate? The alt-right sites are all blaming it on the fact that the mayor is black, but I think that’s unfair. He reasonably pointed out that dozens of deaths occurred during H. Rita because of the evacuations.

    Evacuating a huge area is very difficult, esp. with hysterical civilians, pets, babies, etc. So I don’t know. I do think the take away from this is make your own evaluations. I would have left.

    (I’m reminded of the 2nd guessing people did of Bloomberg, who went in the opposite direction during Irene, and closed the subways, and got slammed for it. The idiots who slammed him have zero idea what a cut and cover subway is, and how the subway system pumps water out 24/7, with over 700 diesel pumps. If Irene had been different, and one of those pumps failed, we’d have been inundated and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people would have been killed. So I don’t know what Sylvester should have done, but Bloomie did the right thing.)

    • Ideally, you should know if your house is in a flood area and evacuate if the forecast calls for 40 inches of rain.

      • Right. You don’t necessarily even need to leave the area. Maybe you can stay with friends or family whose houses are located in a less precarious position.

        On a personal level, it’s certainly good advice to get the hell out, but an exodus from one of the largest cities in America isn’t really practical. It’s another argument for distancing yourself from large concentrations of humanity, if you can help it.

      • I have to admit that I don’t know if my residence is in a flood area but LOL, I am a lowly tenant. I suppose that a home-owner would have to know that for insurance purposes.

        Anyway that only half answers my question. Yes, if you are in a flood plain & 40 inches fall, get the hell out of Dodge. But should the authorities have evacuated? A woman was interviewed and said she “couldn’t afford” to evacuate.

      • I wonder if they knew there would be looting because of all the NAMs there.

      • Since I was in the target range for Hurricane Matthew last year I evacuated, but you have to have a place to go. You can’t just hop on the road with your family and pets and just drive without a plan.

  5. Do SWPLs have such good survival skills? I guess proles are good for something other than overeating, getting addicted to drugs, watching mindless TV, and shopping at the mall.

    • “Do SWPLs have such good survival skills?”

      SWPLs have virtually no survival skills. The only activities they participate in that could help them in a survival situation are camping and backpacking. They could gather wood, start a fire and filter their water, and maybe forage a bit, But once their freeze-dried meals are gone, they’ll be in a lot of trouble. They can also kayak but that has limited utility.

      Proles can hunt, fish, and trap. They own handguns, rifles, shotguns, air guns, and bows. Proles have many kinds of boats as well as pickups, RVs, and four-wheel drive vehicles. They own a lot of tools and can build and repair numerous items that are necessary in a survival situation. Many proles work in fields that help prepare them for emergency situations. In short, proles are far more prepared for a SHTF situation than any other group.

  6. This Hurricane Harvey event was mostly about NAMs according to the MSM. One does not find many Whites among the displaced.

    Does the Alt-Right have anything to fear?
