PAT ROBERTSON BELIEVES VOODOOism is the Root Cause of HAITI’s Problems; Rush Limbaugh is just as bad; What do you Say?

By Kevin Stoda


PAT ROBERTSON said on a Christian News Station last week after one of the most horrific Earthquake in modern history: “And. . . .something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and the 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. Desperately poor. That island of Hispaniola is one island. It’s cut down the middle. On the one side is Haiti; on the other side is the Dominican Republic. Dominican Republic is prosperous, healthy, full of resorts, etc. Haiti is in desperate poverty. Same island. They need to have, and we need to pray for them, a great turning to God. And out of this tragedy, I’m optimistic something good may come.”

In turn, RUSH LIMBAUGH in one of his radio shows added this racism to the story of the Haitians. Of the Haitian, expert Limbaugh claimed namely that: “This is what he [a Haitian] 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? So the country that he runs around the world apologizing for, the country that he has a chip on his shoulder about, he now turns to as its president and asks people who have lost their jobs because of his policies to donate to whitehouse.gov to the people of Haiti. And we will do it. We are the most charitable and the most generous people on the face of the earth. Each and every time a natural disaster like this happens, we step up, we are there. That place, Haiti has been run by dictators and Communists. And how long is it going to be? How long is it going to 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?”

Admittedly, both Rush Limbaugh and Pat Robertson stated similar things about Americans living in New Orleans back when Hurricane Katherine struck five years ago.
I’d like readers of this very blog to comment on these comments by people abusing American free speech rights and encourage you all to get to know the true story of Haiti. Take care of these fun-loving and generous peoples as best we can. Helping only comes back to you.


Here are some agencies to offer to help to Haiti with your support, your volunteerism or through your (donations):
