I have been reading on the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, and of course, soon enough one finds stupidity strewn along the path.
First Danny Glover, who believes the earthquake was caused by global warming and climate change:
Says Glover: “When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?”
Tim Blair correctly points out,
Tim Blair refers to another idiot, Pat Robertson.
While we watch that YouTube, it may be worth asking if Danny’s donating for earthquake relief any of the $18 million bucks Hugo Chavez gave him a few years ago for making that movie about Toussaint D’Overture, the Haitian slave that led the revolt against the French and declared himself emperor.
We’re still waiting for the movie.
Menwhile at the HuffPo, Bill Quigley opines, Part of the suffering of Haiti is indeed “Made in the USA.” because in the last decade the US cut foreing aid to Haiti. Of course, the fact that Haiti has, of its own making, three centuries’ worth of disastrous history have nothing to do with Quigley’s opinion.
