Here's Pat Robertson equating an attempt by slaves to claim their freedom with "a pact with the devil:"
"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," he said on Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club." "They were under the
heal[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."
The next time your wondering why there are so few black Republicans, consider the fact this unreconstructed Confederate was not long ago one of their greatest crusaders. Consider that he is equating the resistance of slavery, with a rejection of Christ. And there's an African-American right next to him, nodding in agreement.
Fuck Pat Robertson. Fuck the "Christian" Broadcasting Network. And fuck any black person who'd nod reverently while a white supremacist slanders our founding fathers. She should be ashamed of herself.
