I figure republicans would be largely in support of the tsunami.
Johnny Carson observed that Americans have treated the Japs very badly.
We dropped 2 nuclear bombs on them,
and then President Bush went over there and threw up on them.
Naaahh, its too late to be thinking about supplementing our attacks on them.
The war is over.

Why would Republicans support a tsunami? I can't see any connection.

Yes, and will Christians blame atheists for the earthquake in Christchurch?
I find what I said and what you said about the republicans blaming Obama are both deeply tactless.
Making a joke on top of 10 000 dead, a melting nuclear powerplant, millions of suffering goes under freedom of speach. Even though we have freedom of speach we also have something called being tactful.
It was right wing racist rednecks I had in mind really, and those who rate Christians or Americans or white people of greater value than other humans, but even then I imagine almost all are sympathetic to the plight of the Japanese right now, and therefore it was a very low thing to say.
In my defence, inappropriate humour is often my way of dealing with appalling horror such as this.
