    In a perfect world, a reasonable person could safely assume that a disaster on the scale of what's going on in Haiti would preclude repugnant bipeds from seizing on the opportunity to spray their bile. Well, it's obviously not a perfect world.

    We have Pat Robertson, using, literally, his bully pulpit to spread hate, ignorance, and religious insanity. There's Rush Limbaugh who used the disaster, and the backs of Haitians and blacks, to spray his thinly veiled racist views, hate, and fear mongering.

    Lest we worry that such putrescent attitudes and behavior haven't permeated the entire societal fabric, we have purulent turds, here, at Cycling Forums, who use the opportunity to sling their corrosive spray.

    Such folks are the lowest of the low. While the rest of the world shows it's concern for the people of Haiti, these scumbags use the opportunity to prove that they are spineless enough and small minded enough to use the moment to spread their ignorance.

    I don't know what all credit card companies are doing, but a report from some news agency said some cc companies were suspending transaction fees re: Haiti.

    Robertson is a turd.

    I would prefer cretins like Robertson and others to focus their attention on their own country's interferring with
    Haiti and the fact that the USA (along with France) have conspired to make Haiti the country that it is.
    Haiti, under french colonialism and US interference, has been made in to a very ppor country.

    In late 18th century Haiti had a thriving economy.

    Today it is a basket case - and that's without the attendent hurricanes/earth quakes.

    I'm new to this board and one thing I surely don't expect to find here is another Craigslist Rant and Rave arena where racists can post their views leaving the rest of us on the board to take time away from what we enjoy--talking about cycling issues and topics. If you want to be a racist on this board, I don't believe that this should be the place to do it. I would also hope that the administrative staff of this board not allow topics that are racially incendiary. I really appreciate the fact that there are some of us on the board who have taken the step to shame the poster who decided to make such a statement about the people of Haiti. I'm really hoping that I have not jumped onto a board that caters to cyber racism.

    No Pat, it's not Hugo.

    Don't worry, I will continue to monitor BlueTrain and his xenophobic/racist views.

    Here's a few more of Pat's gems :


    "Lord, give us righteous judges who will not try to legislate and dominate this society. Take control, Lord! We ask for additional vacancies on the court." –Pat Robertson

    "Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history." –Pat Robertson

    "I would warn Orlando that you're right in the way of some serious hurricanes, and I don't think I'd be waving those flags in God's face if I were you, This is not a message of hate -- this is a message of redemption. But a condition like this will bring about the destruction of your nation. It'll bring about terrorist bombs; it'll bring earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor." –Pat Robertson, on "gay days" at Disneyworld

    "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." –Pat Robertson

    "I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period." –Pat Robertson

    "I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected him from your city. And don't wonder why he hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for his help because he might not be there." --Pat Robertson, after the city of Dover, Pennsylvania voted to boot the current school board, which instituted an intelligent design policy that led to a federal trial

    "God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.' ... He was dividing God's land. And I would say, 'Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the E.U., the United Nations, or the United States of America.' God says, 'This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone.'" --Pat Robertson, on why Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a massive stroke

    "Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up" –Pat Robertson, on nuking the State Department

    "You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with." –Pat Robertson, calling for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez

    "It may be a blessing in disguise. ... Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. Haitians were originally under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or 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, okay it's a deal. Ever since they have been cursed by one thing after the other."

    i'm not sure what you meant or whom you meant that may be a racist but there are none on this board and i've only found that this board allows all to have an equal say in just about any and all arena of topics so take from it what you will and do with it the same.

    It's crazy stuff : Haiti has the misfortune of being located on a
    tectonic faultline on the earths surface.
    That's the reaon for the quake.

    Using Robertsons logic, California would also be condemned.....hey wait a second, i can see a pattern developing:)

    Robertson is and always has been an a$$hat. He and Jerry Falwell got together and made the same sorts of wacko religious right comments after 9/11. Even scarier than Robertson are all of the folks stepping up to defend the "man."

    They say mass religion is the narcotic of the masses, but in Robertson's case, it's more like the Peyote or Windowpane of the masses.

    Yeah, it is bizzare stuff.
    Nominally these people were in Haiti to help the people of Haiti.

    Now it would appear that some of them were using this disaster, to engage in something unlawful.
    Dreadful actions, if proven.

    Why worry about this at all. Pat Robertson has no credibility at all among the intelligent. He is ignorant and caters to the ignorant. bk

    Unfortunately the "intelligent" are only part of the electorate. Evangelicals have been able to influence, or at least make themselves heard, on Capital Hill and in the White House. The numbers of evangelicals and their followers are not insignificant.

    I'd also be careful about labeling his followers "ignorant." That's a broad brush stroke.

    Been away from the site for a while, as evidenced by not having seen this thread before.

    OMFG, Robertson is worse than I thought!! Evangelicals are more mistreated than any racial minority?!? Uh, excuse me... Balloon Head... are Evangelicals living on reservations with running water and indoor plumbing still a luxury in 2010?

    Limbaugh is an obvious hatemonger; if Hitler had sounded like Limbaugh, WWII never would have happened, the majority of Germany would have laughed him out of the country (and I know how humorless the Germans can BE!) But Robertson has this little following....

    It's about time more people realized that Limbaugh is an inflamed hemorrhoid on the backside of America, and Robertson the crusty dingleberry that got him that way.
