To follow-up on Zach’s posting about Pat Robertson’s commentary about Haiti, Keith Olberman takes Robertson and Limbaugh on for their idiotic, racist statements about Haiti. As he bitingly says “You Serve No Good, You Serve No God”. Here’s his special commentary:
Update: For those who seem to think that what Limbaugh had to say was totally appropriate, I doubt that you have seen or heard his quote. Here is what Rush Limbaugh had to say:
“Yes, I think in the Haiti earthquake, ladies and gentlemen — in the words of Rahm Emanuel — we have another crisis simply too good to waste. This will play right into Obama’s hands. He’s humanitarian, compassionate. They’ll use this to burnish their, shall we say, ‘credibility’ with the black community — in the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It’s made-to-order for them. That’s why he couldn’t wait to get out there, could not wait to get out there.”
As US News & World Report blogger John A Farrell stated about Limbaugh:
What kind of world does this nincompoop live in, that this nonsensical musing pops out of his mouth? What makes him see things through such an ugly prism, at a time when the bodies are still being dug from the wreckage?
And then this oaf went on to discourage Americans from making contributions to the Red Cross because, via foreign aid, “we’ve already donated to Haiti–it’s called the U.S. income tax.”
What a Christian.
