    Uncalled for and tasteless. Turning tragedy into a reason to attack conservatives (or anyone).

    ^ Oh, come on. Turn tragedy into a weapon, indeed. Robertson’s and Rush’s remarks were FAR more abusive and uncalled-for than this ‘toon, so It’s definitely appropriate to called them on it in any forum of debate by any reasonable thinking person. Quit looking at everything as political “us vs. them” labeling or you’ll be stuck in the whirlpool of their imaginations.

    I agree with you zrogers. You can’t use a natural disaster that killed thousands as an reason to blame others. Hope Haiti recovers soon.

    talbert11, that’s the point of the freaking cartoon!! Because that’s what Rush and Robertson did! For those who don’t know, Robertson was echoing statements made, interestingly, by the slaveholding aristocrats who felt threatened by black people starting their own republic by throwing out the aristocrats! And that included Southern slave-holding Americans.

    Classic Pat “the boogyman” Robertson.

    More of his ‘christlike’ messages:

    “Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up” -Pat Robertson, Suggesting the US State Dept. in DC should be nuked

    “I have known few homosexuals who did not practice their tendencies. Such people are sinning against God and will lead to the ultimate destruction of the family and our nation. I am unalterably opposed to such things, and will do everything I can to restrict the freedom of these people to spread their contagious infection to the youth of this nation.” -Pat Robertson

    If Christian people work together, they can succeed during this decade in winning back control of the institutions that have been taken from them over the past 70 years. Expect confrontations that will be not only unpleasant but at times physically bloody…. This decade will not be for the faint of heart, but the resolute. Institutions will be plunged into wrenching change. We will be living through one of the most tumultuous periods of human history. When it is over, I am convinced God’s people will emerge victorious. -Pat Robertson, Pat Robertson’s Perspective, Suggesting Christians should attempt a coup, Oct-Nov 1992

    (a)”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

    (b)”Wait a minute, I didn’t say ‘assassination.’ I said our special forces should ‘take him out,’ and ‘take him out’ can be a number of things, including kidnapping.” -Pat Robertson, clarifying his call to assassinate Hugo Chavez several days later

    “(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

    There are other posts on these pages showing Robertson’s supporters are here, and as vile as he is. Pat (Oliphant) understates the slime of his messages over the years.

    Robertson may have a point, according to the Bible he reads God created Heaven and Earth, then, several thousand years later, he approached a small tribe of people living in the Middle East and informed them that they were his chosen people, and if they worshipped him they would be saved, and all of those who didn ‘t worshipped him were doomed.

    This meant that the millions of people living at that time in China, India, Europe, North and South American, and the rest of the world were doomed – even though they had never heard of him.

    It seems to me that that sort of God would have no trouble offing a bunch of people living on a island.

    I almost hate to ask, and refuse to do a search, exactly what did Rush the dumbo say this time?

    Oliphant skewers those who most assuredly earned it.

    ahab, My God, that is one of the sickest, most vile comments I’ve ever heard! I think Rushbo is mentally ill. How could anyone want to listen to this falsely sanctimonious jerk. He should be condemned for these remarks by anyone who has an ounce of humanity in their soul.

    ”The disaster enables Mr. Obama to highlight his “compassionate” and “humanitarian” credentials and to “boost his credibility with the black community,” Limbaugh said. He also decried the White House’s promotion of charitable organizations through which people can contribute to the disaster relief. “We’ve already donated to Haiti,” he said. “It’s called the U.S. income tax.”

    Rush isn’t mentally ill, he just has no morals. He makes his ratings and money by spewing the vile hatred his listeners want to hear. He doesn’t really care about who it hurts or how false it is. I thought you’d have figured that out by now, BCS.

    I don’t know who’s a more disgusting pos: Robertson or Limbaugh.


    BOB HASTY GoComics PRO Member said, almost 7 years ago

    Robertson parlayed his non-profit corp. into diamond mines and a law school for his weak-of-faith. Limbaugh parlays his $30 Million contract into drugs and other self indulgences.

    Surely Robertson takes the cake!

    I’ll vote for Rush. He spits this scheit for money. With Pat, it is a faith based illness.
