Rev. Pat Robertson & Rush Limbaugh are worthless.
"And you know, Kristi, something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French, you know, Napoleon the Third and whatever, and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you'll get us free from the French.' True story. And so the devil said, 'O.K., it's a deal.' "
The brilliant Robertson was referring to the theory that Haiti is a nation built on a pact with the devil. It’s a tale of “Haitian voodoo priests sacrificing a pig and drinking its blood in 1791 in order to secure Satan's aid in expelling the French occupation.” In turn, the priests promised Haiti to Satan for the next 200 years. So, this little pact with the devil caused the horrible earthquake in Haiti, right? It has punished the Haitians and is believed to have killed thousands. Give. Me. A. Break. Side note, this pact would have expired years ago (in 1991), so what the hell is Robertson talking about? Nothing. His words carry no weight and instead of showing some type of compassion for this tragedy he makes a mockery of it.
Of course, Limbaugh can never keep his mouth shut. “This will play right into Obama’s hands — humanitarian, compassionate,” Limbaugh argued. “They’ll use this to burnish their, shall we say, credibility with the black community — the both the light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It’s made to order for them.”
If it’s not one thing it’s another. Forget light-skinned, dark-skinned…focus on the actual situation at hand; a country that is now destroyed by a terrible earthquake. I guess being sensible in a time of need is out of the question for these two men. So while they chit chat on the comfort of their talk and radio shows, thousands will attempt to aide the devastated country. Well, maybe Robertson can donate some of his own money and Limbaugh can donate some of his pain pills to help out the citizens of Haiti.
TIME piece on Robertson.
Think Progress on Limbaugh.
