Malaka Of The Week: Pat Robertson

There was a lot of egregious malakatude this week but in the end I had to pick the evil, senile and faux avuncular Pat Robertson. I hesitated to do so because my colleagues have done such a good job hitting the Bad Reverend upside the headhere, here andhere. Jude’s comments on the first post, in particular, are *impossible* to top.

But even if predictable coming from this well seasoned douchebag, claiming that Haiti was hit by a record setting earthquake was because of a pact with the devil hits 100 on the malakatude scale. Why would a deal with Satan be necessary for SLAVES to gain their freedom, Pat? Your version of God is pro-slavery? I know you should be placed on an ice flow and put out to sea in your underwear but I figured you thought slavery wasn’t a good thing, Pat. Toussaint L’Overture was a freedom fighter claiming the rights that he mistakenly thought were granted by the French Revolution.

The good news is that the Bad Reverend hasn’t got long to live so these periodic eruptions of imbecility from him will cease. I’m sure there are many others who’ll fill the gap and pronounce natural disasters as punishment for sins, deals with the devil orSouthern Decadence.Pat Robertson will leave the scene fairly soon but his sort of malakatude is eternal.

I’ll let Jon Stewart have the last word on Pat and his colleagues in malakatude:

  1. Indeed, malakatude was on high this week… as it seems it is every week lately(!). But good ol boy, millionaire son of the Senator, founder of right-wing law school and former whiskey officer Robertson no doubt takes the bitter cake!
    I can’t wait for the day when he joins his buddy Jerry on the other side of the River Styx. And discovers it is Hades itself to which his eternal soul is landed.

  2. If God is willing to withhold punishment for several generations, what does that mean for those of us who are either direct descendants of slave owners, or all of us who profited in some way, directly or indirectly, from “the peculiar institution,” “separate but equal,” etc.?
