VIDEOS: Reaction to Pat Robertson comments from Haiti's people

It comes as no surprise that there are people who are very unhappy with Pat Robertson's inflammatory comments about the Haitian people. I have picked up a few good videos from YouTube with some reaction.

First, here's a video which starts with Robertson's comments, along with a young Haitian man's response to Pat's accusation that the people of Haiti swore a pact with the devil (courtesy of The Miami Herald.)

Ambassador Raymond Joseph, Haitian Ambassador to the United States, appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show and spoke to Pat Robertson's comments on Haiti. Take a look:

As always, I look forward to reading your comments. Please post them here.


  1. Rachel Maddow always clarifies the air concerning stupid things people say (Robertson this time)

  2. I am very sorry to hear that there is a belief that Pat Robertson represents the USA to others... Mr. Robertson's views are not indicative of anyone but his own very small circle. He doesn't even represent Jesus' teachings... he really needs to spend some quality time reading the bible before he sits before a camera again. Shame on you, Pat Robertson.

  3. Pat Robertson's flavor of Christianity is one that frightens me. He and his views are not dissimilar to the extremist views of other religions. Take the Muslim faith, for example. Look at what extremist views of that wonderful religion spawns. It's those views, like Pat Robertson's, that breed hatred and terror and division among us. Pat is a wolf in sheep's clothing, and he proves it over and over.

  4. It's not just Pat Robertson that is quilty of this. The entire right wing in the US has jumped on board with stupid allegations. Rush Limbagh said the earthquake was a "scheme" to make Obama look good. The sad truth is a lot of people believe the bullsh*t that they spew. America needs to wake up and realize what kind of power these people possess...has everyone forgotten Bush and his republican croonies??? The religious right has no place in the governing of a country, there is a separation of church and state for a damn good reason!

  5. We were told, "There will be many 'False Prophets'.
    The Blind leading the Blind inciting, racism, division, hate, war, theft, ....
    What was that woman thinking as Pat spewed such lie and nodded for her to go along with him?
    Dollars for false prophets, so many many many will and do follow.

    Sad for them, but I have no tears enough left.

  6. I've read the bible from cover to cover, twice- Have you? Such prevision cruelty and despair. I dare not expose my children to its pornographic horrors. Christianity is a great source of evil in our country.
    I say ban it from the face of the Earth. It has become a pox upon Mother Earth and her children.. If you must have imaginary friend to worship why not try Hathor the goddess of love, Athena, Aphrodite or Cronos, divine descendants of Gaia, the earth, and Uranus, the sky.

  7. It is unnerving to think that Pat Robertson is looked at by other countries as a voice America agrees with. I am embarrassed to have to listen to people lecture Americans because they think Pat Robertson says what we think.
    What on Earth would make that ignorant, God humping Jesus slurping Earth pig say such a thing about Haiti? Either he should be made to apologize to Haiti and clarify that his obscene comments are his alone or that mental equivalent of a road kill be made to seriously kept from any audio shot of any broadcast station. The United States allows free speech however when you cross a line and say things that are offensive to the point other entire countries look at us in a way that Haiti now apparently does you have become an enemy of the country. Pat Robertson you either apologize to those people and then us or go hang yourself. Punk.
