The man who called for the assassination of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who concurred with scumbag Jerry Falwell that 9/11 was his monstrous god’s retribution for the actions of the ACLU, feminists, pagans, gays and lesbians, abortionists and secularists, who gave credit to Ariel Sharon’s stroke to his monstrous despot of a god, who consorted with former presidents Charles Taylor of Liberia and Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire (both internationally denounced for human rights violations), who lied about sending relief aid to Liberia (for which he was given mining rights by Taylor) but instead was smuggling diamond mining equipment in Operation Blessings aircraft, is at it again.
Pat Roberson weighs in on why he thinks Haitians deserve the tragedy that is unfolding in Port-au-Prince:
And you know, Christy [the nodding yes-woman talking head to his right whose sole purpose it seems is to make Pat look intelligent – and fails], something happened in Haiti a long time ago, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French – uh, you know, Napoleon the third – and they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, “We will serve you if you get us free from the French.” True story [This story isn’t in any book on the histiory of the Carribean I’ve ever read…]. And so, the Devil said, “Okay. It’s a deal.” And, uh, they kicked the French out of – you know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free [And I thought it was the Devil, Pat!].
But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other – desperately poor. The island of Hispanola is one island [Hence the singular “island”. Duh!], cut down the middle. On the one side is Haiti and on the other side is the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resources [But, lucky for them, no diamonds…]. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island!
They need to have – and we need to pray for them – a great turning to God. And out of this tragedy, I’m optimistic something good may come. But right now we’re helping the suffering people and is unimaginable.
The histories of Haiti and the DR rapidly diverged following French withdrawl, which is the real source of difference between the two and not the Devil, Pat. Having been to the DR, I would say that it is definitely better off than what I know of Haiti, but I wouldn’t call it affluent. But, two countries having different histories – must be the Devil! Or some such illogic… And what of all the believers who are as equally affected by the earthquake as the non-believers (very few of those in that part of the world, actually…)? Pat, your murdering god isn’t all that discriminating. Funny, that. You view world events through a warped lens, where everything is interpreted in terms of how events affect people. Good outcomes mean your god is happy, bad means your god is pissed, so you make up crap to rationalize it. Very convenient, postdictive and self-fulfilling. And you’re a putz, Pat. And speaking of the history of Haiti, Napolean III hadn’t been born before the slave revolt of 1803…
I will be blunt. Pat Robertson, you are a son-of-a-bitch. As with the demise of Jerry Falwell, I will feel no remorse when you are gone and the world will be better off without you. That is a terrible thing to have to say about a fellow human, but I question whether there is an ounce of humanity left in you, Pat. Like Falwell, there must be someone who loves you and will miss you, and to those people I will give my sympathy. But you are the worst kind of opportunist, using tragedy as a prop to spread your hate-filled beliefs rather than trying to promote them via their merits. Oh, right. They have no merit. You need human tragedy as a backdrop to make your god look good, which is why ‘witnesses’ just love people in personal crisis.
But nothing good comes of human tragedy born of natural disasters, or any disaster, Pat. (Unless one subscribes to redemptive suffering, and those people can just sod off…) Your first thought is “How can I take advantage of this?” To you, providing real aid (you know, medical aid, food, water and shelter – definitely NOT prayer) is a nuisance, just getting in the way of your prosthyletization schemes. How annoyed you sound! And to those who listen to this degenerate asshat, you should feel shame knowing no bounds!
(And Pat has the gall to mention despots as a consequence making a pact with the Devil when he himself was in collusion with despots in Afric- wait a minute… Could there be a connection? Could Robertson be… SATAN? If I was remotely religious I might think so…)
Am I angry? Damn straight! And so should any thinking and feeling human being. Evil! Thy name is Pat Robertson!
