There being a massive natural disaster killing or hurting thousands or millions of poor people yesterday, Pat Robertson responded naturally this morning, by blaming it on those specific poor people and their worship of Satan — all under the guise of a Disaster Relief Fundraiser.

What happened was that back in the 1790s, after witnessing the French Revolution, Toussaint L’ouverture led a successful slave rebellion against the French in the Haitian Revolution, word of which spread and inspired networks of American slaves to consider their own rebellions right up and through the Civil War. Some consider this strain of history “organized political action that helped end slavery in the West.” Pat Robertson considers it a Satanic Pact.

Hundreds of years of propaganda, right here!

“Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it,” he said. “They were under the heel of the French … and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, ‘We will serve you if you’ll get us free from the French.’

“True story. And the devil said, ‘OK, it’s a deal,'” Robertson said. “Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another.”

Time to send in Rick Warren’s missionaries, to give all of the survivors AIDS.

    Well to be fair to Robertson, in his world leading a successful slave rebellion against your white slave owning overlords is the equivalent of having a “pact with the devil”.

  • jodyleek

    Robertson should ask god why he comdemned him to be such a Jeebus slobbering, fear mongering, “moral majority” pandering, money grubbing, hypocritical bigot and all around lying sack of shit?

    And the Haitian slaves answered, The Aristocrats!

  • JMP

    Nice of Pat to show his racism; the only way those black folks could beat their white persecutors was through a deal with the devil. Or maybe they “worship Satan” because many follow the Vodou religion, which is somewhat Christian-influenced, but not traditionally Christian.

  • Prommie

    Whats all ironical and stuff is that Pat is actually proving right there, as he speaks, he is proving, providing absolute objective proof, that there is no God. Or at least one who gives a shit. Becuase if there were a God who actually like is concerned with us morons here, Pat would have been struck by about 50 bolts of lightning simultaneously right then, and then God would have appeared to state, lest there be any confusion: “Hey, you, you christian fucktards listening to this asshole, you’re doing it wrong.” And he would have miracled some brains into Robertson’s viewers skulls, too, just so they’d fucking understand him, for fucking once.

    But thats not what happened, so, obviously, there is no God.

  • Asa Hawks

    Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

    In other words, fuck you Pat Robertson.

    P.S Sorry about the long post.

  • AlexisHidell

    Pat, if this earthquake is proof to you that poor Black folks are in cahoots with the debbil, then the very fact that you continue to live and breathe is proof to me that there is no god.

  • Aurelio

    Nice of Pat to show his racism; the only way those black folks could beat their white persecutors was through a deal with the devil.
    Pat also thinks that 9-11 was punishment for gay epidemic in America.

    Note: this is not a Christian view. In fact, no one in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the book of Job has believed that God punishes people in this life. Christians believe that God waits until the afterlife to fuck you in the ass in hell (or have his sidekick, the devil, do it for him).

    Therefore, Pat Robertson is not a Christian, which should not be a surprise to anyone.

    “Even the religious toleration which Theodoric had the glory of introducing into the Christian world, was painful and offensive to the orthodox zeal of the Italians. They respected the armed heresy of the Goths; but their pious rage was safely pointed against the rich and defenceless Jews, who had formed their establishments at Naples, Rome, Ravenna, Milan, and Genoa, for the benefit of trade, and under the sanction of the laws.” Gibbon

    Ok, so Pat Robertson says that those who rebel for their independence have made a pact with the devil? Isn’t that just a little like saying “God damn America”, Pat?

    I think I can clear up some confusion here. If you listen closely to Pat you’ll realize that he’s not praying to the Christian “God”. He is praying to GAWD.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Of course Pat would like everyone to believe it was Toussaint l’Overture’s rebellion that caused horrible things to happen to Haiti — because if he were honest about it (no worry about that happening anytime soon) he’d have to admit that its poverty has been due to economic exploitation over the last century — which has included massive deforestation, which has contributed to heavy erosion, which multiplies deaths in a natural disaster. This raping of Haiti’s environment has been facilitated by the Duvalier family, with lots of support from the US. Though Baby Doc was booted out twenty years ago, the country has yet to have a stable or effective government.

    Of course Pat might want to forget that — because his own history of involvement with dictators to exploit their countries’ natural resources is pretty extensive. Yeah Pat, you pious, judgmental, racist, opportunist Pharisee — those three fingers are pointing back at you.

  • JMP

    [re=494030]WIDTAP[/re]: No, it’s only non-white people who rebel against biblicly-ordained white masters for independence that must be on the side of the devil.

  • doxastic

    Honest question: Is there some sort of fundamentalist back-story to this? Like, have they always thought this about Haitians, or is this part of their fear of witchcraft stuff…? Because Pat seems to have serious confidence in his Devil-Pact “facts,” and it’s just too weird to have been thought up on the spot. I’m sort of surprised that he didn’t go with a more established cross-Caribbean slur, like the Puerto Rican belief that all Haitians have AIDS…

    Oh yes, Kristi… not everybody knows… not everybody knows the secret of Haiti. A long… a long time ago, they were under the boot heel of the French, and this was God’s will. God wants us, Kristi, he wants us to be under that boot heel, to enjoy the feel of the weight of our masters pressing down on us. And we, as good, God-fearing Christians, Kristi, we should appreciate and kiss that boot heel, to suck on it lovingly, full of the love that our savior Jesus Christ has for us! Do you know what it’s like, Kristi, to feel that love, the love of being prostrate before Lord, to feel His love rain down on your fine, mocha skin?

    Mmmm, I could teach you, my child, show you what it means…

    Uh… yes, Haiti. The island of Hispaniola is split right down the middle. The Dominican Republic, it’s peaceful and prosperous and fairer-skinned… these are truly God’s children! They have these resorts, Kristi, these resorts in the prosperous and blessed Dominican Republic, where the people know God’s love and will share it with us, Kristi, share it for only the slightest remuneration! And there, down there, so close to the sinful, lustful people of Dark Haiti, where you can just feel the sin oozing over and washing over your body, consuming you! Such desires… We can go down on a relief mission to help… to help these poor children!

    And I can show you these resorts, Kristi, that truly bask in the glory of Jesus’ name! We can truly live under God’s plan! I can show you, Kristi, the proper way to for a true servant of God to pray, to fast, to meditate, the deep breathing… to prostrate yourself before the Lord, and the flagellation…

    Yes, Kristi, I think you’d… you’d do well with the flagellation…

    RUSH: … . Look, there are people that do charitable work every day in Haiti. It’s not as though — like [Florida Democrat] Debbie Wasserman Schultz [claims], it’s our fault. Reverend Wright [says] it’s our fault [and] there’s no excuse for such poverty when there’s a nation as rich as we are so close. There are people that have been trying to save Haiti just as we’re trying to save Africa.
    You just can’t keep throwing money at it because the dictatorships there just take it all. They don’t spread it around, and even if they did they’re not creating a permanent system where people can provide for themselves.
    IT’S A SIMPLE MATTER OF SELF-RELIANCE. Nobody takes that approach down there because this has always been a country run by dictators and incompetent ones at that.

    [re=494009]Hart88[/re]: This cannot be because Patso’s Christian Broadcasting Network operates out of Virginia Beach.
    Must be another reason.
    E.g., Mikey Steele performs there each weekend in a starw boater and plaid.

    Hey now, take it easy on poor old Pat!

    He’s still sulking like an emo/goth kid at an Up With People concert over not getting his Gog Versus Magog nuclear apocalypse “Second Coming: Quick, Grab A Bucket” wargasm back in the 1980s … kinda funny how none of the flock seemed to much mind that “TEH VOICE OF GOD” chumped the call on that play so hilariously badly … come on, where’s the sympathy for ultra-right-wing self-righteous sick fucks with their own TeeVee shows & tax-exempt snake-oil franchises?

    Wow, so the Haitian devil held off god for that long?
    Looks like our devil is about running out of steam too.

    Robertson didn’t seem to mind pacts with the devil when it came to mining diamonds and gold with liberian warlord-turned-president-turned war crimes arrestee Charles Taylor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Taylor_(Liberia) . If I recall he was close to Mobutu, who at least reportedly got into some pretty weird, not-christian, religious stuff towards the end of his plunderous reign

    Bumbacloth! The true face of evil. Robertson and that supine subservient bitch nodding approvingly will share the same space in hell and will spend eternity being buggered nightly by a big fat juicy Haitian named Joseph-Desire
