FNC’s Shep Smith Blasts Pat Robertson’s Claim that Haiti Has a Pact with the Devil

Last updated on August 10th, 2014 at 05:04 pm

In response to Pat Robertson’s claims today that Haiti has made a pact with the devil, Fox News’ Shepard Smith said, “700 miles east of Miami hundreds of thousands of desperate human beings need our help, our support, our money, and our love, and they don’t need that.”

Earlier today on his program The 700 Club, Pat Robertson said, “And, you know, Kristi, something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III and 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, “OK, it’s a deal.”

Here is Shep Smith’s reply on Fox News courtesy of Media Matters:

Smith said, “They turned to the devil. The people of Haiti have been used and abused by their governments over the years. They have dealt with unthinkable tragedy day in and day out, and we’re in the middle of a crisis that the Western Hemisphere has not seen in my lifetime, and 700 miles east of Miami hundreds of thousands of desperate human beings need our help, our support, our money, and our love, and they don’t need that.”

Pat Robertson’s comments were so classless and inappropriate that they should be condemned by every media outlet. What has happened in Haiti is not just a natural disaster. It is a historic catastrophe. There is no place for Pat Robertson’s self serving nonsense.

Haiti is not a devil worshiping nation, and it is safe to say that the earthquake was not caused by the devil. How can a self proclaimed man of God like Pat Robertson be so callous in the face of such human suffering? Shepard Smith’s contempt for Robertson’s comments should be shared by everyone who hears them.
