The Televangelist and The Talking Head

With the devastation massive and the body count yet to be determined, the poor nation of Haiti in ruin. Out of their expensive and expansive holes crawl the Televangelist and the Talking Head.

Within hours of this natural disaster we were on the road to moral salvation and had been informed that the cause of this natural disaster were both Haiti’s pact with the devil as well as a ploy by the Obama administration to cement the black vote, as well as siphon off relief donations in to the bureaucratic black hole that is the government of the United States humanitarian efforts. Everyone should feel great relief we have these moral voices watching out for our souls and our charitable donations.

The Haitians “were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III and whatever,” Robertson said on his broadcast Wednesday. “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.’ ”

I myself have felt the strong desire to make a deal with the devil to escape the oppressive rule of the French in both the wine and cheese section of the supermarket. Yes all you folks in both California and Wisconsin should pay special attention to Pat’s warning!
And to my dear friends and family in California, I pray for your souls and salvation in both the wine industry as well as the aftermath of any future earthquake. God and Pat only know what he shall blame that on.
Perhaps his human compassion for the victims in Haiti should be viewed as a precursor of his Christian compassion in your time of need?

The words and actions of Pat Robertson and his organization should frighten everyone with common sense and the belief in human rights and humanitarian thought.
He walks the ever so fine line between tax exempt religious zealot and radical extremist.
In my opinion the only discernable difference between Mr. Robertson and Jim Jones and the People’s Temple is one’s headquarters is in Virginia Beach Virginia. Well that and one has a Satellite network broadcasting his extremist views. Well that and one destroyed his followers with posioned koolaid. In fairness Mr. Robertson has yet to unveil his plan in that regard.

Fortunately we have the voice of reason in Rush Limbaugh to point out what’s important for us to focus on in this time of great need for the Haitian people.

In the wake of the Haitian earthquake, Rush Limbaugh has created a tremor of his own.
The ever-controversial radio talk host is taking fire for advising people not to donate to Haitian relief through the fund set up by the White House.
If you do that, said Limbaugh, you’ll probably just end up on an Obama campaign mailing list – and a big chunk of your donation will get siphoned off by government bureaucrats.
In an effort to defend Robertson’s comments, conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh made controversial comments of his own.

Limbaugh said on his radio show that “this will play right into Obama’s hands, [casting him as] humanitarian, compassionate. They’ll use this to burnish their, shall we say, credibility with the black community, in both the light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It’s made to order for him.”
Yes thankfully we have the talking Head of Rush Limbaugh to put things in perspective for the American People.
The continuing sniping of the right wing media and moral majority of the Republican Party is causing damage to America in ways that are inconceivable. Not only is it divisive in making real progress in the recovery of our country in the current economic climate, but humanitarian efforts both domestic and abroad are compromised. There is a great deal to be said for financial conservatives. And the country benefits greatly from opposing viewpoints on issues. However the response given by these two, simply highlight the growing move of many Americans to an Independent party and an independent view of government and what is just, and in this instance Humane. Perhaps we should thank them both?
