Pat Robertson’s Thoughts on Haiti Shocking, Even For Him

“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti,” Pat Robertson said Wednesday on the Christian Broadcasting Network, “and people might not want to talk about it.” What is it??? In order to win their freedom from the French, they made a deal with the devil. “They said, ‘we will serve you, if you’ll get us free from the French.” Accordingly, all of their problems since have been a result of that poorly considered pact. (“It’s a true story,” Robertson added. Huh!?!)

Of course, we were all just waiting for Robertson to say something crazy, after he blamed Hurricane Katrina on legalized abortion and agreed with Jerry Falwell that “the ACLU has got to take a lot of blame for [9/11].”

Anyway, to win their own freedom, Americans made no pact with the devil. (Just the French, which is close.) Obviously, that’s because they were overwhelmingly white. If you think about it, what Robertson said starts to make sense. How else could dark-skinned peoples have defeated a white-European army, if not with the aide of Satan himself?

Oh, sorry. Living in a post-race society means we can’t say that racism is racist anymore, right?

Anyway, isn’t it a lot easier to blame the Haitians’ crisis on themselves? Especially because if you’ve been listening to Democracy Now! all week, you know that Haiti’s poverty is totally our fault.

  • Yes, when white people battle the dark man, then “God is on our side.” But when dark people have the temerity to battle white people, especially for the right to be free, to control their own destiny, and to rid their country of white colonizers who enslave and rob the country of its natural resources, then pacts have been made with the devil. Poor Pat Robertson. He is still a captive of Kipling’s “White Man’s Burden.”

    But lots of white people listen to him and believe him as he spouts incorrect history and his myopic religious perspective. Well, Jesus, we still have a lot of work to do down here on Earth before your message about love is truly received.

  • Pat Robertson has convicted himself by means of his own words and deeds. He is, by definition–according to the Bible–an anti-Christ. Jesus specifically warned against the Pat Robertsons who were surely to follow:

    Matthew 7: 15-19

    15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
