    Hurricane Telethon Gets Political Right At The Start [VIDEO]

    Hurricane Telethon Gets Political Right At The Start [VIDEO]



    Singer Stevie Wonder kicked off Tuesday’s star studded Hand In Hand telethon to raise money for hurricane recovery by getting political. Wonder started the show by saying, “Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.”

    The Hand In Hand telethon was run on every broadcast network to benefit victims of hurricanes Harvey, which devastated the Houston area, and Irma, which slammed Florida over the weekend. The event mirrors past telethons for natural disasters.

    UPDATE:

    Wonder wasn’t the only participant who got political during the telethon. Singer Beyoncé contributed a video that started, “During a time when it’s impossible to watch the news without seeing violence or racism in this country. Just when you think it couldn’t possibly be worse, natural disasters take precious life, do massive damage, and forever change lives.”

    Continuing, Beyoncé said, “The effects of climate change are playing out around the world everyday.” She then implied that climate change was behind the hurricanes, a monsoon in India and the recent earthquake in Mexico.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Beyoncé is disgusting, and gets too much hype. And, yeah, climate change has been on Earth since the beginning of time. Poor dinosaurs. I hope Beyoncé goes with them. She needs to be petrified, so she will shut up. And, who really cares what she says; anyway?

    It is people like her that have made millions living in a capitalist country that have no basis to be criticizing it. She is disgusting; not to mention being a hypocrite. Hypocrites seem to be the current people of the day. God bless hard working Americans, and those that struggle to survive on their own merit.

    The thing is that entertainers did not have to worry about education. The thing WE need to be worried about is what our children are being taught when we can't be there, unless you homeschool, but, I don't know if that really makes a difference.

    I don't have a problem with accepting Climate Change. I don't have a problem with Global warming.

    My problem comes when they try to blame it on human beings.

    That is how you know our World has gone insane. There are no words to describe what is being said anymore...whether it be climate change, racism, nationalism, getting a coffee at Starbucks, worrying about terrorists amongst us, whether our prez is worthy of the office, watching Hillary make a fool of herself, wondering about the integrity of our FBI, hoping no more patriots die in the ME. I know I left a lot out. I would appreciate if anyone else can fill in my blanks.

    I don't have a problem with climate change - it's a fact that the climate changes.

    I don't have a problem with global warming - the climate changes and has done so since the beginning of time.

    My problem is when they try to pretend they can "fix" it. Do something about it. Really, Beyonce? You think you're so powerful and all that that you can change the freaking climate??? You think that if everyone recycled and drove a Prius you can change the freaking Earth???

    I can;t decide whether these people are stupid or just massive egomaniacs.
