In the event you’ve been sitting around wondering what people like Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh had to say about the Haiti earthquake, you’re in luck, as they have spoken! Robertson blames the whole thing on a deal Haiti made with the devil, and Limbaugh is accusing Obama of using the earthquake to suck up to black people. Yeehaw!
Here’s a sampling of the “pact with the devil” nonsense from Robertson that aired on the 700 Club or whatever it’s called earlier today, which is kinda funny in a way seeing that 90-95 of the population of Haiti is Catholic or Protestant, but hey, WHATEVER:
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 … 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 the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal.’ Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another.
Watch the full segment here…
And here’s Limbaugh just plain being Limbaugh, finding fault with Obama for speaking about Haiti faster than he spoke about the underpants bomber, and then accusing the president of using the event to score point with “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country.”
As pointed out by Bucky, Brit Hume will likely have something to say about all this before the end of the day. Damn Haitians need to embrace MORE Jesus Christ, obviously.
