“They (Haitians) were under the heel of the French…and they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said ‘We will serve you’…and so, the devil said ‘Okay, it’s a deal’ and kicked the French out”, “They need to have…a great turning to God,”
I just want to turn this on its head a bit. Lets look at liberals and conservatives as two families. Pat Robertson is that crazy old uncle that spouts off all manner of nonsense but most of us in his family either humor him or just roll our eyes and ignore him. He doesn't shock the rest of us in the family any more as we've come to expect his kookiness. Some of us even understand his kooky logic (but keep in mind "understanding" and "agreeing with" are two VERY different creatures entirely-- as in "Uncle Pat, I understand where you're coming from but I still consider what you're saying to be bat guano craziness!")
On the other hand, those outside the family, those Liberals over on the left side of the street aren't used to Crazy Old Uncle Pat like those of us in his family are. And because he's in such a high profile position some of our neighbors over on the left side of the street might get the idea that crazy old Uncle Pat is speaking for the whole family when he utters his nonsense.
The moral of the story is... consider the source.
