Two of my favorite iconic American clowns have once again opened their pie holes to reveal their true nature.  This time around robertson-limbaughthe two men both demonstrated a tremendous lack of empathy for the horrible tragedy unfolding in the nation of Haiti.  Let’s start with Pat Robertson, the last remaining televangelist of the old guard.  Mr. Robertson apparently believes that Haiti’s woes,  past and present,  are related to the nation’s pact with Beelzebub (Satan).  Because the island nation has a a cultural history of practicing voodoo, God (remember that cartoon superhero?) has deemed this as an alliance with the devil (Arch-Enemy to cartoon superhero) and thus warrants his wrath and vengeance (Old Testament superhero).  Get a load of that crap.  Referring to a Haitian legend about Haitian independence, Robertson said the following.

"And so the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal.  The Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other."

Just for the record these are Pat’s other comments on modern tragedies:

9/11 was God’s punishment on this country for harboring abortionists and tolerating feminism and the homosexual agenda?

Hurricane Katrina – The destruction of huge swaths of New Orleans was a manifestation of God’s wrath?

Now onto my favorite bag-of-wind, Rush Limbaugh.  Rush showing that he is a crazed ideologue and incapable for one second of putting aside his political agenda, saw the Haitian disaster as one more opportunity to push his wing nut agenda on his “ditto head” zombies.  So what was it this time that is getting the hyper-arrogant Limbaugh so much attention?  Here’s Rush in his own words:

This will play right into Obama‘s hands. He’s 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 them. That’s why he couldn’t wait to get out there, could not wait to get out there.


I wish he  had stopped at that ridiculous statement but it didn’t.  The real damage (and like it or not this fathead has the power to inflict damage) was by these comments:

"We’ve already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax"

Although this is not a flat out command to NOT send relief aid to the tiny nation, you can be certainly sure that the fervent followers of Limbaugh will read this statement to mean just that.  “Taxes” is the magic word to his drone army.  Whenever Limbaugh wants to work them up into rabid foaming mess all he needs to do is drop the word “taxes” and  “government” and the ditto-heads line up for their marching orders.

It’s about time that rational people abandon these two hateful and divisive characters once and for all.  How many times are they going to get a pass on outrageous comments and not suffer for it professional and financially?  Their is some hope that Robertson may be wounded by his comments but as for Limbaugh, I don’t hold out much hope.
