The great irony of the Flint water crisis is that liberals have seized upon it as their issue.Some of them have even gone a bit more extreme and made it a racial issue, arguing it never would have happened if the city wasn’t predominantly black.
I guess they’re implicating their fellow liberals as racist, as the city’s government is predominately Democrat.In a brief 140 characters of sanity, Michael Moore appears to have realized this:
Flint has voted for Dems for 84 straight yrs. What did it get us? For 18 months Dems remained silent &ignored pleas while Flint was poisoned

I wonder if he’ll connect the dots here and realize they didn’t LET it get that way, they MADE it that way.
