MyDD on Jefferson and “The problem is New Orleans/LA”

Filed under: Civic Blogging,New Orleans — Tags: , — Morwen Madrigal @ 3:00 am

This is my response to those who blame us for the reelection of Dollar Bill and the trashing of our culture.

I do stand for New Orleans, and that will never change.

(MyDD will blank this as soon as one of the asshole donkey-elephant hybrids read it. My Blog will keep the post alive.)


The prob lies within the Party itself: lobbyists, professional “polyticians” and an ignorant populace. (oh! and you Race fetishists.)

There is no “quality” amongst the people that vote. They are clueless as to the wheres and whys of things. They do not think critically. They can’t really understand anything outside of their yuppie toys and whether Jill needs to be driven to ballet practice or if Trent has to go to ball practice. (Oh yes… what is the wine for the meeting this week?)

The 200,000, those of us who returned to rebuild this city, do not care for armchair political crap about “who we reelected.” We didn’t vote for Jefferson. Those who did were bussed in by the Jackson crowd. (By one of those you have a fetish for.)

Anyone who is not from New Orleans needs to have a major Reality check. You aren’t here, and you have no freakin’ idea of the Truth about this place. Too many of you live an artificial life that bears no resemblance to the world the Founders foresaw.

I’m a Jeffersonian Democrat. I have always been registered that way, even when I was lumped into the Peace and Freedom Party. I AM a Progressive. I have studied the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers. I have read all of the works of the Founders in my time.

How many of you “blame New Orleanians” Democrats out there can state the same? Do you even understand the fact that this city and it’s cultures are closer to T.J.’s ideals then the poop you are living?

When was the last time you walked your neighborhood and talked with the folks on the porches? Have you made a huge bunch of food and handed it out to those around you? In what fashion have you interfaced with those around you?

And in what ways have you helped your fellow citizens? Have you given service to the country?

The answers to those questions are most probably “Nadda, zilch, and huh?”.

If you see yourself on the negative in these questions, then you know what you are in the American system… THE ENEMY.

We here in New Orleans are fighting for our lives and culture. (Do you even have a culture in your homeplace?)

Ben Franklin told us we had A Republic “If we can keep it.”. How have you defended the Republic lately?

When you have to go through what we’ve existed under for the last 21 months, then you will have some validity. Experience the trashing of your folks by a Nation only intent upon SUVs and their porfolios… only concerned about their lonely selves and not the web of community we live in…

Welcome to Demo-Publican America.

We, the 200,000 in New Orleans who are rebuilding and getting things going, don’t need your selfish, Demo-Publican crap. We will rebuild, but you folks can only replace the garbage you have lost. We can create, but you can only copy failed things since you are intellectually challenged.

In other words, we are keeping something vital alive. We ARE THE AMERICAN DREAM. We LIVE… What’s your modern American life like?

Here in New Orleans, we do live Jefferson’s dream.
Our lives are about community and continuity. We live our lives and try not to destroy others’.

Can you understand what I’m trying to express? Are you that so far out from the real Human experience that you have no reality when it comes to community?

So children, attack the folks of New Orleans, and understand that I will be there protecting our Sacred place. Most of you aren’t worth the dirt to cover your carcasses.

I’m Morwen Madrigal, and New Orleans and Her people are mine to protect. Trash us, and get ready to reap the whirlwind.


  1. Bravo! This is an excellent response to those “would-be allies” who are so completely ignorant of what has happened in the region, and the unbelievable efforts of folks like you and so many other NOLA activists to change things for the better, with love and compassion and understanding.

    I am always both enraged and filled with sorrow when our supposed “allies” come out with such ignorant and downright hurtful language against a city and a region that I love (I am from NYC but have been drawn, over and over again, to NOLA).

    Good for you, gentilly girl. You have hit the nail on the head.

  4. GG, you get a hearty WOOT WOOT! from me! Granted, I am not (yet) a New Orleanian, but may be soon – if I will hurry up and send my info back to the folks I interviewed w/on Friday in the CBD.
    Sock it to ‘em Gal!!! :)
    Hugs and Blessings!!!

  5. Excellent.

  6. Thank you Darlin’s… My curtsey to you all.

    This is not over. The rebirth of the Progressive Party starts in New Orleans, and that means we have much work to do, and many folks to help get back into place.

    It’s far past time for America to remember Her roots. We here are just the proving ground.

    Her Blessings!

  7. Thanks for your spirited defense, MM. The trashing of Katrina/ACOE victims continues unabated, and we all occasionally need a brash retort that lays waste to the ignorance that afflicts the uncaring critics and judgmental “mavens”.
