Haiti, Limbaugh, Robertson, Olbermann

As I'm hearing in now the death toll in Haiti is estmated at 100,000.  I'm absolutey gobsmacked by that number.  It's just... insane.  In a country of just under 10 Million, this is the equivalent of New Your City expericing THRITY 9/11's in a single day.  At least 30,000 MORE than were killed by the Atomic Bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. I can only hope that these estimates are wildly exagerated.  I'm just... stunned by this.  Humbled by the awesome power of the earth we live on, and by such a massive loss of life in a single event, on a scale that no American can even wrap their heads around.

Showing their usually lack of tact, and in this case BASIC HUMANITY, Rush Limbaugh and the "Reverend" Pat Robertson were quick to add their usual verbal incontinence to the otherwise common-sense mix of charity and sympathy being expressed throughout the country...

Robertson:

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 III and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, "We will serve you if you will get us free from the French." True story. And so, the devil said, "OK, it's a deal."

And they kicked the French out. You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other.

Limbaugh:

I want you to remember it took [Obama] three days -- three days -- to respond to the Christmas Day Fruit of Kaboom bomber. Three days. (NOTE: What he doesn't want you to remember is that it took Bush SIX days to respond to Richard Reid. Six days.)  And when he came out after those three days, he was clearly irritated that he had to do it. He didn't want to do it. He comes out here in less than 24 hours to speak about Haiti.

Oh, this is what he lives for. He lives for serving those in misery. Now don't misunderstand here, folks. See, this is -- I wonder -- I don't have the whole press conference, but I wonder: Did he apologize for America before acknowledging we are the only people on Earth that can possibly help them out down there in any significant way?

That place, Haiti, has been run by dictators and communists. And how long is it gonna be, how long is it gonna be before we hear Obama and the left in this country say that what we really need to do is reinstate the communist Aristide to the leadership position down there to coordinate putting the country back together? The Haitian economy is entirely dependent on foreign aid. They produce nothing -- zilch, zero, nada.

Yes, I think in the Haiti earthquake, ladies and gentlemen -- in the words of Rahm Emanuel, we have another crisis simply too good to waste. This will play right into Obama's hands -- humanitarian, compassionate. They'll use this to burnish their -- shall we say -- credibility with the black community, in the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community, in this country. It's made-to-order for 'em. That's why he couldn't wait to get out there. Could not wait to get out there.

Reverend Robertson? Mister Limbaugh?

FUCK YOU.  GO TO HELL, YOU INHUMAN SCUMBAGS.

I'd like to say it a bit more eloquently, but I'm afraid that between the shock I'm feeling over such a huge loss of life, and my anger as these two shining examples of conservative excrement, that I'm just not even capable of saying any more.

I will say this however... Keith Olbermann had some pretty choice words for these two just now on MSNBC...

To "Mister" Robertson (of whom he said, "it is laughable now to try to call him reverend."):

"Sir, because of your tone-deafness and your delight in human misery and your dripping, self-satisfied, holier-than-thou senile crap, I'm likelier to believe now that you are the devil."

He went on, ending with:

"Mr. Robertson, Mr. Limbaugh, your lives are not worth those of the lowest, meanest, poorest of those victims still lying under that rubble in Haiti tonight. You serve no good, you serve no God. You inspire only stupidity and hatred, and I would wish you to hell. But knowing how empty your souls must be for you to be able to say such things in a time of such pain, I suspect the vacant, purposeless lives you both live now are hell enough already."

I don't know Keith.  All the Hell's I've ever read about seem too good for these fiends.

  2. Hey Eduardo, I was reading your posts over at MMFA on the Steele "Honest Injun" remark. I'm in the same "camp" with you on that one. I know I wasn't offended and I'm Seminole-African. The intent of Steele's remark wasn't to denigrate Native Americans, or "Indians"(my grandmother hated the term Indian)She prefered Seminole

  3. Greg,

    If one is able to identify a tribe or nation that they descend from, I would imagine that designation would generally be preferable to an umbrella term, whether that term was cosidered offensive or not. That's the downside of a term like "African-American" because it lumps ALL of the varied cultures of Africa into on terms, and most can not trace their lineage back farther than the Confederacy. Hey: you'll never hear an Irish- or Italian-American describe themselves as "European." LOL. So yeah - I say that one SHOULD be pround of their heritage. And umbrella terms like Indian, Native American-African, European, etc... are dismisive of that heritage, at best.

    As for Steele (and Reid?) As neither man has a history of racism, I see it as no more than both sides trying to score cheap points. After all, if either man DID have a history of racism, THAT HISTORY would be a problem in and of itself, and would consist of much more than the occasionaly outdated coloquialism. (Take someone like David Duke. Non-PC language is really the LEAST of people's complaints about HIM. LOL)

    Thanks for your comment.

  4. I couldn't agree with you more when it comes to those two (and people who agree with them). My eloquence goes straight out the window when I speak about them as well, you aren't the only one. They deserve no respect, as well as everything Olbermann said about them.

    Makes me sick.

  5. By the way, I'd like to add that I'm a first-time commenter on your blog, but I've been a lurker for a few months now. I really enjoy what you say, and agree with most or all of it... I only wish I could put my feelings into words as well as you do!

    Cheers,

    Matt

  6. I could not believe it when I read the Limbaugh and Robertson comments. Later on, when I went to work and talked about it with my coworkers, someone actually defended Limbaugh to say that he heard the quote and it was taken out of context...

    I don't know what context he was referring to, but I went back to see if I missed something. There is no other way to interpret that...

  7. Metal Matt,

    Welcome! Thanks for your comment and for coming by! Glad you like my blog, and if you do see something you disagree with me on, please feel free to let me know. As fun as it is to preach to the choir, the best part for me is still a hearty debate! Thanks again, glad you like it.

  8. Kevin Kelley,

    Yeah... there's really no context in which Limbaugh's words are defensible. 100,000 people might be dead and his biggest concern is that Obama might benefit. (Um, YEAH... Because he's not an idiotic scumbag who would, for example, watch an entire US city flood and drown and do NOTHING for over a week, when doing pretty much ANYTHING would be the right choice!) Seriously, after Bush's EPIC FAIL with Katrina, you'd think these guys would drink a nice steaming cup of STFU every once in a while!

    But they LOVE the "out of context" defense. And it's just more of their classic projecting. THEY take quotes out of context all the time. They think nothing of it. So... go figure that their opponents are ALWAYS making this defense... I mean: THEY'RE ALWAYS BEING TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT! And these RW'ers assume that everybody else is as sorely lacking in principlas as they are, so everyone else must make a regular practice of this as well. Also, they know that their own sheep will always give them the benfit of the doubt: The Con NEVER takes ayone out of context, but those evil Lib's? Oh man, watch what you say, becasue they'll take you right out of context! As soon as the have everyone convinced that THE OTHER GUY is doing what THEY'RE in fact doing...? Well, they'll always get a pass on it from that point forward!

    That's why they keep driving home the "liberal media" myth: It's shields them from any objective criticism without them actually having to address it!
