Zombies are comin!! revisited

Now that I have the evidence to properly defend my post pertaining to zombies in Haiti I'l do so.

Below are links to some articles that are starting to float around. You don't have to read the article because I think the headlines speak for themselves.(HAARP stands for High Frequency Active Aural Research Program and is considered by some to be a potential weapon.)

UFO Or HAARP Over Haiti Night Before Quake
 'Haiti Full Of Oil' (1-28-08) - US HAARPs Quake & Grabs Oil?
US Army Takes Haiti - US Blocks Some Aid Flights
Why Is The US Military Occupying Four Airports In Haiti?
UN Said Haiti Is Full Of Gold Back In The 1970s!
Clincher! - US Says Will Stay In Haiti 'For Long Term'
Chavez Say US 'Weapon' Caused Haiti Quake
So. Command Just Happened To Be Doing Haiti Drill... 
Eurasian Minerals May Of Their Holdings In Haiti
Eurasian Minerals 5 Main Projects - Haiti, Etc
The U.S. Created the Earthquake in Haiti?

There is the intended butt of my joke. Here is a list of others that I made fun of in the post:
1. Those that debate fast zombies vs. slow zombies or brain eaters vs. flesh eaters without acknowledging the fact that the first Hollywood zombies were Voodoo type zombies.
2. Those that think Voodoo type zombies are the original walking dead.
3. Journalist that make leaps of logic without knowing much about anything. Explanation: The article I linked to with the headline Head Voodoo Priest Protests Haiti’s Mass Burials, Fear of Zombies. The article seems to be legit. It has shown up at various news sites but this version has one, very slight difference which is the erroneous statement "Many Haitians believe that the desecration of their loves ones could lead to the dead roaming the earth again as Zombies." So the head Voodoo priest does not mention zombies in the article. Nobody brings this up. And the fact that Haitian zombies don't come back for revenge but rather as cheap labor isn't mentioned either.
4. People who think there's a time limit before you can make fun of something. Because as we know time heals all wounds and makes shit funny as hell!
5. Pat Robertson and evangelicals that think the earthquake was because Haitians sold their souls 200 years ago. If souls were sold isn't an eternity in Hell proper punishment?
6. The French.
7. Screenwriters and authors. How long before zombie themed screenplays and stories start showing up using the quake as a backdrop if not a cause for the apocalypse? 6 months? A year?

I was taken to task because I was using the pain and suffering of thousands to make a joke. I was using the pain and suffering of thousands to make a point: American society is full of people who are sensationalist-loving, unobservant, media-consuming, gullible retards.

Was I really making fun of people or just holding up a mirror?

The quake in Haiti was terrible. My condolences goes out to those that have lost loved ones. But as an honest American my life is not affected. No one I know was affected. 13 days after the quake a Facebook status re-post thingy started making the rounds questioning why we as a country are so focused on Haiti when we still have victims from Katrina trying to put their lives back in order and homeless people dying on our streets everyday yet there is no outcry. I'm beginning to wonder why I didn't wait 13 days before making my post as well.
