The Right Wing’s Haiti Politics

The Right Wing’s Haiti Politics

Ari Melber discusses the political implications of Pat Robertson’s statement about Haiti’s curse.


Nation columnist Ari Melber joins Arianna Huffington and Frank
Schaeffer on The Joy Behar Show to discuss Pat Robertson’s
statement that Haiti’s earthquake is a result of the country’s “pact
with the devil.” The panelists discuss the ties between the religious
right and the Republican Party, which Melber says has many political
implications. “What you’re seeing is the really ugly side of this right
wing movement,” Melber points out.
