Tornadoes in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Tennessee, and, especially, Kentucky caused massive damage and over 100 deaths. In Kentucky, more than 100 are feared dead in the collapse of a single candle factory where rescue operations continue around the clock.
Yet America’s leftists welcome this news with glee. Why? Two reasons:
Leftists are evil.
Ignorant leftists think deadly tornadoes are a result of climate change.
Remember, leftists believe all events, good or bad, are the result of their favorite bogeyman of the moment. They lack critical thinking skills, bigly. Here are some examples of their stupidity and malice:
Senator Rand Paul @RandPaulOur hearts are broken for all those suffering from last night’s terrible storms . I and my team will do all we can to assist local and state officials as they lead the immediate response, and will aggressively help families, businesses, and officials access recovery resources.
Raw Story @RawStoryRand Paul begs Biden for federal aid to Kentucky tornado victims -- after a career of voting 'no' when others needed the same https://t.co/kvmA5TOmhB
And, no disaster would be complete without Hollywood’s lowest-IQ weighing in to prove his imbicility:
Now that you know how evil leftists are (and assume all leftists are this ignorant), let’s look at the reality of tornado deaths in the United States.
According the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), deaths by tornado per million people have dropped dramatically over the years.
The latest data available are from 2013, but here’s the chart:
Look at the green line, which tracks mean deaths per year. It was steady from 1875 to 1925. Then it descends steadily to 2013.
Leftists will say that’s become of early warning which allows people to seek cover, and they’d be partly right. But they’re not considering the fact that, throughout this period, populations have become more concentrated. And one F5 tornado in a densely populated area will cause more fatalities than the same tornado in a sparsely populated area.
