No good deed goes unpunished if you’re a Republican
Red Cross Doesn’t Want or Need Your Non-Monetary Donations, claims MSNBC’s anchor Andrea Mitchell
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday questioned the sincerity of a “storm relief” event organized by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Ohio, arguing that the Red Cross apparently has no need for donated clothes or canned goods.
“You’ve got the image of Mitt Romney doing what, they say, is not a campaign event in the same space they were going to hold a campaign event. They say they’re making collections for hurricane and storm relief,” the MSNBC anchor said during a Tuesday broadcast of “Mitchell Reports.”
“We checked with the Red Cross. The Red Cross said, while they’re always grateful for donations, that this is not what they need or want. They always tell people, ‘please donate money, because we have our own packagers, wholesalers’ — they have their own distribution system,” she continued.
Yes, in major weather events like Sandy, the Red Cross does put an emphasis on monetary donations. That’s probably why, along with tables “piled high with flashlights, batteries, diapers, toothbrushes, mini-deodorants, fleece blankets, cereal, toilet paper and canned goods,” the Romney event also featured two large TV screens encouraging supporters to text “REDCROSS” to 90999 and “make a $10 donation.”
“And to now get these canned goods from the Romney event in Ohio, and have to first package it — used clothes, they have to clean, they can’t go directly to victims. So, what they need are donations of blood and donations of money,” said Mitchell. “It does seem like a thinly veiled, uh, why Ohio? Why choose Ohio for –”
“You, know, right, because the storm is kinda’” the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza chimed in.
“Not in Ohio?” she said, finishing his sentence for him.
Well, actually, if you want to get technical about it:
Yes, the effects of Superstorm Sandy have been felt in Ohio:
Hundreds of thousands of homes across Northeast Ohio were still without power this morning as high winds and rain from tropical rainstorm Sandy lashed a wide swath of the country, from Florida to Canada and as far west as Chicago.
And just for good measure: “The state of Ohio is opening its emergency operations center after Superstorm Sandy left more than 250,000 people without power.”
Representatives from the Red Cross have not yet responded to TheBlaze’s request for comment regarding Mitchell’s remarks, which you can see below:
FYI: I can personally attest to the fact that Sandy did damage in Ohio. Most of Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Lake and Geauga Co. was without power yesterday and much of Ohio was too! My daughter was one of those without power. Not ONE of the local stations, including the biggest were able to broadcast, not ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, but, if you listened to Andrea Mitchell, Ohio wasn’t even harmed by Sandy. The biggest harm is the biased media. They will all one day burn in hell for their crooked ways! There is just about nothing that tops the list of why there is so much corruption. The media does NOT do its job because it always lets the Democrats off easy and hates the Republicans. They are responsible for their own demise and why no one believes the liberal media anymore. It’s little wonder they are going out of business, because they have no business reporting their bias instead of the news! We have a bumper sticker that says, “Don’t believe the liberal media.” Everyone should put them on too, their front doors, their bumpers, and pins on their chests! If you listen and believe the liberal news media, you’re a deceived Democrat who has no idea what the real truth is! You haven’t heard it for years upon years! — Donna Calvin
