Haiti, Limbaugh, Robertson, Olbermann
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...
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.
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.
