The Bible Thumper and the Junkie Take Heat for Remarks

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh are taking heat from the left and the right for making appalling remarks about Haiti within hours of a massive 7.0 earthquake striking the capital of Port-au-Prince. Much of the city was destroyed leaving thousands of people injured and killing as many as 100,000. The actual death toll won’t be known for weeks.

In an attempt to score political points, dope addict Rush Limbaugh claimed the earthquake played into President Obama’s hands, allowing him to appear both “compassionate” and “humanitarian” while at the same time bolstering his standing in both the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. We’ve already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax.”

Conservative commentator Pat Buchanan on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” denounced  Limbaugh’s remarks saying, “They are deeply insensitive. The president speaks for the country when he says we’re going to go in there. You want your whole nation, and it’s very positive. And I think Rush’s comments were cynical.” Host Joe Scarborough called Limbaugh’s comments “deplorable.”  “The insensitivity is stunning,” said the former Republican congressman.

Not to be outdone in the asshole department, Bible thumper Pat Robertson speaking about the disaster during his program, “The 700 Club” on the Christian Broadcasting Network, said that when Haiti was still a French colony its leaders “swore a pact to the devil” to get out from “under the heel of the French. 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,’”

Speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” White House adviser Valerie Jarrett said Thursday morning she was left “speechless” by Robertson’s remarks. “That’s not the attitude that expresses the spirit of the president or the American people, so I thought it was a pretty stunning comment to make,” she said.

Haiti, with a population of nine million, is located on the western half of the island of Hispaniola, is dissected by an active earthquake fault similar to the San Andreas fault in California. The poorest country in the western hemisphere, Haitians survive on less than $1 dollar a day. One-in-three Haitians were effected by Monday’s earthquake.

    Robertson and Limbaugh are world-class assholes who deserve to be fed alive to hungry Komodo dragons. The event filmed and shown to cable viewers on Christmas day.

    Things we will never see: Rush Limbaugh apologizing for something insensitive he has said.

    Rather, Boss Vicodin will wiggle his jowls and rant about how what he said was taken completely out of context by the Libruhl Meeeediah.

    And Robertson…well, I’m surprised he didn’t blame the Haiti earthquake on the gays and the feminists. They’re his usual target of choice for God’s retributions.

    Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh.

    Maybe they suffer a slow death from a thousand dull and rusty knives. Even this is too good for them.

    I wish those two had died instead of the Earthquake victims, and I’m not ashamed to say it.

  6. I have to disagree with libhomo. Death is far too generous for such pustules on the ass of humanity.

  7. Not only am I outraged over these remarks, but the lack of compassion from the Tea Baggers is astounding.

    I too am speechless …. I can only hope people will see these two men for who they really are with these comments and begin to reject them.
