Republican Wingnut Pat Robertson Claims that 'Haiti is Cursed' (video)

Soulclap to Media Matters for pointing us to this story. Republican wingnut Pat Robertson's unique brand of race-baiting flared up again today.




PAT ROBERTSON: 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. 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, et cetera. 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. But right now, we're helping the suffering people, and the suffering is unimaginable.

KRISTI WATTS (co-host): Absolutely, Pat.
Where does the Republican Party find these fools?

In the meantime, I encourage all villagers to provide your prayers and other tangible ways to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

CCGroovy - I'm not sure. However, I figure that the next generation of wingnuts is coming out of the so-called Tea Party movement...
