Sorry about the late news, but the MSM weren’t exactly all over this one, since it involves their favorite race-baiting scumbag mayor.

Looks like he wasn’t content to declare that Nawlins should be a “Rassenrein” “chocolate city” (honkies need not apply), now he’s promoting the “go to Nawlins and get murdered” brand as well. No, we shit you not:

Mayor Ray Nagin said he worries that slayings in the city make it seem dangerous, but news of such crimes “keeps the New Orleans brand out there.”

In a city where the tourism industry is the lifeblood of a fragile economy, the wave of violence threatens to derail efforts to bring visitors — and former residents — back. Yet Nagin, at a bricklaying ceremony Thursday, told reporters it’s a “two-edged sword.”

“It’s not good for us, but it also keeps the New Orleans brand out there, and it keeps people thinking about our needs and what we need to bring this community back,” he said. “Sure it hurts, but we have to keep working every day to make the city better.”

We’re not sure if we should recommend this shitbag for the Annual To Every Cloud, There Is A Silver Lining Award™, or if we should just recommend that he be involuntarily committed to a home for the terminally stupid and deranged.

So yep, according to Raycist Nagin, people getting brutally murdered is actually a Good Thing™, since it “keeps the brand name out there” and keeps people “thinking about what we need to bring our community back.”

Makes you wonder: If killings drop, will Raycist Nagin start roaming the streets gunning down random strangers to keep things on the right track?

Congrats, Nawlins residents, you’ve managed to re-elect a smear upon the stained sheets of humanity that is actually stupider than you are. Who’d have thunk?

Obligatory Disclaimer for our Nawlins LCs: Yes, we know that you didn’t elect him. If the shoe don’t fit, don’t wear it. Better still, use it to clobber the living snot out of the race baiters, welfare sows and assorted other criminals in and out of office that fuck up your fair city.

Also, we find it deeply disturbing that Nawlins has this reputation, because we’d dearly love to visit one day. It’s an historic city well worth a visit. If you have received your Interceptor Body Armor in the mail, of course ;-) Finally, don’t anybody get the idea that Nawlins is the most dangerous city to visit in the Empire. Washington DC still claims that “honor” and, not only is the likelihood that you’ll get mugged, mutilated, raped, murdered or all of the above much higher in DC, you’ll also get to enjoy the fact that the Nazi City Gummint of DC won’t let you defend yourself. At least Nawlins gives you permission to do THAT.

    Let the cesspool sink. The city, I mean.

    What once might have been a vibrant, fun city is no more.

    Just let it go, people. Pull the plug.

    I would almost wish for “global warming” to be real, just so the rest of that place could get inundated.

    Maybe San Francisco could go, too, and make it a “twofer.” :em02:

    There’s really nothing provocative or disturbing about this.

    The only victims are the poor schlubs who don’t believe in a “chocolate city” but who went back to NO anyway because it’s the only home they ever knew. They need to read the writing on the wall and get out before it’s too late.

    Really, besides them, the only victims in this unfolding sad-sack tale are us, for having to hear about some “progress” or “tragedy” in New Orleans every news hour.

    I was kind of inclined to give the guy a pass when he made the “chocolate city” remark. I thought he might have been making some metaphorical reference to the positive effect of blacks and whites coexisting in the city without regard to color. You know, not black, not white, but a happy mix of the two colors to produce “chocolate”.

    I was wrong. Nagin’s a certified idiot.

    Pass revoked.

    “Sure it hurts, but we have to keep working every day to make the city better.”

    “Every day and every way we’re getting better and better”

    Choco-City Nagin’s 12-step program. It’s been two years and upteen billion dollars poured into NOL already since the Hurricane and still complaints of it not being enough. Other cities that were devastated and did not receive as much in Fed. money have managed to recover. Nothing about them in the news. Wonder why.

    I have been following the events concerning the “revival/reconstruction” of N.O., and I share the same feelings. Now, I do realize the city did suffer a major catastrophy, but after the billions being poured into it, there seems to be very little progress made… After comments like those of Mr Nagin, one wonders as to whom actually benefits from all that “aid” money?

    If you knew something about Louisiana politics, that would be a rhetorical question. Here’s a hint: Louisiana is the only State in the Union that has been able to make Chicago look like a model of transparent, honest, uncorrupt government.

    I work for a charity funded by a federal grant in New Orleans. If people knew the level of fraud in these things, there’d be an outcry that would shake the halls of the Capitol Building. I mainly deal with the data collection and recordkeeping of this charity, but fraud prevention is a major part of my job.

    50% of our clients are on SSI disability, but I’ve never seen a client in a wheelchair or crutches. Perhaps a third of them are employed in a city where the wage for unskilled labor has doubled since the storm. The popular “tricks” are these: inverted Socials, using different spellings of last names, using adult children to claim multiple benefits for one household, and on like that. The Red Cross database used by most charities is fatally flawed: it doesn’t allow searches by social or by street address.

    The most popular type of fraud is “duplication of benefits,” which means they come back to the same charity under another name, social, or address to try and get additional hand-outs. I recently caught a woman who had cheated Red Cross out of $5500.00, and was attempting to make a run at my agency. Another one I caught actually got by me, and got away with $550.00, but I caught her when she tried to make a third pass at the agency.

    The best part of New Orleans people is how charming they are. The comments like “I’m going to come back and kill ya’ll if you don’t give me anything,” makes me question the judgement of my boss, who won’t let my carry on the premesis, even considering my CCW license. I’m quite happy that my father convinced me to pay the money and get a 4-year carry license before I moved here.

    Sire,

    You are entirely right. People should remember that Louisiana is only technically a state. In fact it is merely the northern-most banana republic. America did not colonize, conquer, or settle Louisiana (at least the part that became the state) but bought it from Fwance, already inhabited by people of the Fwench persuasion. And a few stray hispanicos mixed in. You ought to be surprised and grateful the place turned out no worse.

    Oh Emperor

    If you knew something about Louisiana politics, that would be a rhetorical question.

    From reading this, and listening to other comments, I really do not want to know more, I like to keep my food down after I eat it, but thank you for the insight just the same.

    And they keep re-electing this guy!?!? :em98: The “beneficiaries” of your government largesse are probably very happy to have him as mayor for another term euh? Amazing how the unsuspecting taxpayers can be generous to a selected few…

    Thanks for the “if the shoe don’t fit, don’t wear it” disclaimer, Your Rottieness. Those of us who’re down here working hard fixin’ up this soiled corner of heaven appreciate the consideration and the recognition that even in the midst of our gummint’s dysfunction, we do have some of the most liberal (in the good sense) gun and self-defense laws in the nation. You don’t need body armor to visit–you do need a clue about navigating in urban centers–same common sense applies in NOLA as in NY, SF, LA, Big D, Houston, Chicago etc. If anyone wants a map and some recommendations, I and most N’awleanians love to help our guests.

    Re: murder stats, there’s lies, damn lies, and statistics–the murder stats don’t reflect the truth of what’s going on here. There have been maybe a half-dozen real victim deaths this year. That’s too many–every innocent victim is a tragedy. But the big picture is that the other 165 killins have been in drug and apparently most recently prostitution turf battles. In that context, the murder rate isn’t high enough–get going you knuckleheads! There is no place you or I want or need to go that is in the immediate vicinity of those turf wars.

    Transparent gummint? We’ve got that–we’ve known they’re corrupt, but so long as they produced decent results and left us mostly alone, we could nudge and wink and be amused by pols’ ape-like antics–kinda like real-life Brer Fox and Brer Rabbit stories. It’s been my experience that most of America is shocked, shocked, I say, to find out that their pols are crooks, too–no Duh, sheeple! We got a little complacent and the pols got a little too lazy and greedy–now we’ve gotta clean house and that’s happening. We just elected, with an overwhelming majority, a new governor, Piyush “Bobby” Jindal, who has demonstrated levels of honesty, intelligence, and competence unmatched anywhere. As one ex-pat commenter elsewhere said, imagine Reagan’s election after 200 years of Carter–that’s how we feel, except Jindal is a whole lot smarter, younger, and more energetic than Reagan. Hope we don’t lose Jindal to the national scene too soon. We’re clearing a lot of other dead wood in this election cycle, too.

    Willy Ray Wonkanagin is on his way out. He kept some power by promising endorsements and plum positions to a number of people he then shat on. They are now rallying support for the City Council to take over, which our charter allows on a majority vote. The deciding vote in that may be determined in the run-off election upcoming, though it may happen sooner.

    In the meantime, oysters are in season, fat and salty. Shrimp are plentiful and big. There’s fine music all over the place. A good bit of the streetcar line is back up and more coming on line soon. The port is busy, we’re back up to about 80% of air traffic compared to this time in ‘04 and my house is 8′ higher than it was on 8/29/05. Btw, thanks, America–I did finally get a little something back from all the decades of flood insurance premiums I’ve been paying mostly to Floridians and all the other folks around the nation who’ve gotten gummint help with some disaster or another. In spite of many folks’ peculiarly short memories and selfish attitudes, you’re welcome, too.

    Yeah, NOLA’s pretty rough around the edges–always has been. That’s how port cities are supposed to be–the rough edges are the dynamic, exciting, spicy parts. Damn, this town is fun.

    kfosterm, from your avatar I think I can change your opinion of NOLA with one visit to Elizabeth’s in the Bywater neighborhood (just downriver a little way from the French Quarter)–pecan praline bacon. Come and get it, with shrimp and grits, a crab-cake-eggs-benedict-sorta thing or a few other amazing, reasonably priced and voluminous comestibles. Nice pool table upstairs in the bar, too, in case you have to wait or just wanna hang there. Look ‘em up on the web, check the menu, see you there for brunch.

    I heard your governor-elect on Laura Ingraham this morning. I was impressed, to put it mildly. For a “kid,” (relatively), he’s smart. What’s more, he’s a Reagan conservative. I hope he manages to pull your state out of the gutter.

    Said the dolt who’s never been there!

    I would almost wish for “global warming” to be real, just so the rest of that place could get inundated. Maybe San Francisco could go, too, and make it a “twofer.” :em02:

    Ditto my first response, plus…gobull warming is real, but we didn’t cause it! Bush didn’t send in Katrina, mother Giah did…that BITCH!!

    I agree with the San Fransicko part kinda. I’ve been to both cities many times. SF could sink into the pacific right now and I’d morn a little (crab on the warf..mmmmm). If N.O sank, on the other hand, that would really break my heart. If you’ve never been to the Funky Pirate and seen Big Al Carson, or Check Point Charlie’s, or DBA, or Coops on Decatur and had the rabbit and sausage jambalaya (and hundreds of other great places now thriving) you have no fucking idea what your talking about!!! :em12: Folks here on the Rott usually don’t make that mistake for fear of getting their asses handed to them by the boss….but in this case I had to intervene. I’ve staggered around downtown many times and had no problems at all. The cops are all over the place keeping visiting drunks, and college volunteers, and business people, and others safe. I’ve never had a problem over the last 6 months even though I’ve broken a few rules. Yes there are alot of problems, Choco Ray is a corrupt asshole, there is a lot of devastation that still needs to be cleaned up outside of the city, crime is high….but it’s well worth fixing. The culture, food, music, history, and good people of New Orleans are rebuilding and preserving what has been and will be an awesome city again!!! Don’t write this place off, it’s worth saving! And I can’t wait to get back. :em93: If you’ve never been there….go, be smart and enjoy!!

    By the way, I said “dolt” instead of “Jackass” or “asshole” or “dumbfuck” because the fact your here means your on the right track! I’m just a little defensive about N.O….It’s a great city, more devastated by commie(democrap)corruption than Katrina.
