The fallout of the train derailment continues to rock the city of East Palestine, OH. Fearing an explosion, officials decided to release toxic chemicals into the environment. This put countless American lives at risk, as many fear what these toxins might do.
How bad is this? Well, it makes Flint look like Disneyland. The city is literally being called “nuked.”
The affiliate’s reporting quoted Sil Caggiano, a hazardous materials specialist, saying officials “basically nuked a town with chemicals so we could get a railroad open.”
This is pretty bad. People are accusing officials of dooming an entire city, just to reopen the rail line. Residents are understandably upset, but they don’t seem to be getting any facts from officials.
Following the derailment, “federal and local officials repeatedly told residents that the air quality was safe and that the water supply was untainted,” The Washington Post noted.
Uh… are you going to believe them? This is the same federal government that has failed to get ships docked. The same federal government that overlooked a glitch that shut down our airlines over Christmas.
And this is the same federal government that adds regulations and spends trillions for their green agenda to keep the world’s temperature from rising one degree in the next hundred years. But they completely ignore a man-made disaster they are literally responsible for.
This is perhaps one of the worst environmental disasters to ever hit the continental United States. Yet where is the man who should be leading the relief work? Where is Joe Biden? Where is the man in charge of preventing train derailments?
Oh, he’s complaining about white construction workers.
From The Washington Free Beacon:
In one of his first public appearances since a massive train derailment released poisonous chemicals in eastern Ohio, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg avoided discussing the disaster—instead criticizing construction workers for being too white…
The transportation secretary made no mention of the Feb. 3 derailment of a Norfolk Southern train in East Palestine, Ohio, which has forced authorities to release toxic chemicals such as phosgene and vinyl chloride to avoid an explosion and get the tracks operable.
Unbelievable. The first time this moron appears after this disaster and he’s pushing the administration’s empty woke talking points. According to some reports, Buttigieg waited ten days before responding to this disaster.
He should have been moving the moment he heard about it, one minute one. But, yet again, this man was out to lunch. What is this man doing, anyway? Every time something comes up that he should be addressing, he’s literally on vacation.
Don’t be surprised to find out he was on vacation when this train derailed. If he was a Trump official, he would have been fired by now. But this is the level of corruption being allowed under Joe Biden.
Thousands of Americans might die of cancer, thanks to this derailment. Lives are on the line. And Joe and his goons do nothing.
- Officials urge locals to return home, despite a devastating train derailment.
- One expert said they “nuked” the town to reopen the trail line.
- Buttigieg has ignored the crisis, instead complaining about white workers.
