Atrios on the latest “it just looks worse and worse” report:
On Monday, the Tribune says, some firefighters began to take off their FEMA-issued T-shirts in protest. A FEMA spokesman responded by questioning the firefighters’ willingness to help in a time of need. “I would go back and ask the firefighter to revisit his commitment to FEMA, to firefighting and to the citizens of this country,” FEMA spokeswoman Mary Hudak told the Tribune.
So, if you object to having yourself be flown across the country so you can be a human prop for the president instead of actually using your skills to help the citizens of this country then you need to revisit your commitment to “the citizens of this country.”
Can we agree that this report is appalling, but that this isn’t an example of fascism?
