Haiti - People who hate Americans

The Haitians have long hated America and Americans. Perhaps it has to do with envy?

Haiti's regional, historical, and ethnolinguistic position is unique for several reasons. It was the first independent nation in Latin America, the first post-colonial independent black-led nation in the world, and the only nation whose independence was gained as part of a successful slave rebellion. 

Despite having common cultural links with its Hispano-Caribbean neighbors, Haiti is the only predominantly Francophone independent nation in the Americas. It is one of only two independent nations in the Western Hemisphere (along with Canada) that designates French as an official language

Haiti is THE most screwed up place on the planet - before the earthquake. And that's quite a statement when you consider the cesspools on this planet: Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, etc. Hatians HATE Americans as a rule, preferring to believe that they have some connection to France, which ruled them when they were a "sugar island" a hundred years ago. 

If you throw seeds onto the ground, they'll sprout in the lush soil, blessed by equatorial warmth and rain. But people in Haiti starve in normal times. 


I don't think we should deny aid, but I don't think we should send any until FRANCE does. And then we should match the French contribution...

The photo (left) if of Haiti before the earthquake leveled the shanty towns that house the inhabitants of that island of industrious people.

I wonder if Barack Hussein Obama might not want to go to Haiti and be THEIR leader when his term of office in the US has passed in 2012?

  3. Question: How does the Red Cross etc figure out what was damaged by the quake, and what was crap before?

    So many countries hate us, but when asked:"Where would you like to live?" They've always told me "America"
    they want our money and they want to live here on the dough, but they can't pour piss out of a boot with the instructions written on the bottom of the boot.

  4. I suggest anyone with the interest, get their hands on old copies of the now defunct "The Resister: The Political Warfare Journal of the Special Forces Underground," that dealt with Haiti.

    The editor was somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun, but a super smart man and a splendid soldier.

  5. Papa Obama... and he can wear a military uniform and a big hat. Maybe he'll put his hand over his heart for THEIR national anthem.

  6. Wo: Steve Barry had his eccentric moments, but he was dead on when it came to Haiti. Reading what THE RESISTER had to say about Haiti is a primer for anyone who wants to know what a toilet the place is.

    CI Roller Dude: The place is a roach infested sewer. I'm sure they'll want us to borrow money we don't have from the Chinese so we can turn the place into a splendid location to live - so they can reduce it to an open cesspool again.

    Nickie: PapaBama could make up some awards and wear them on his chest in much the same way as Dr. General King President-for-Life Edi Amin Dada did in Uganda. He's the perfect fit for Haiti.

  7. Nickie, LL, you guys have me LOL about the chest awards! PapaBama!

  8. Opus #6: I'm not trying to compare Obama's hollow chest with Dr. General President-for-Life Edi Amin Dada's robust portly build. Which is to say, I don't think Obama could pin as many medals on as Edi Amin was able to do.

    However, I'm sure Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama would do the best he could.

  9. LL your idea about how to assist Haiti is well taken. Since we knee-jerked in our response, probably most of the first wave of assistance we provide will be plifered.

    OTOH, our willingness to respond to any people in need (even though they hate us) is the perfect example of American exceptionalism. It's also the first thing the lib'rals wanna claim for themselves. Phony oblama photo-ops and hyped "pledges" ... the bozo wants to plaster his name all over the relief efforts. He has absolutely nothing to do with them. What a lib'ral, opportunist wipe!

  13. I spent my summer of 2010 working in Haiti. I'm a 19 year old blonde cute American girl. After being with the Haitian people, seeing how they live from day to day, and coming to love them as friends, I don't understand how anyone could speak badly of them. Sure, sometimes they get angry. Sometimes, they seem to hate Americans. But if you lived in a country where you ate one meal every three days or so like most of the people of the village I was in, or if the water you drank was also the water you bathed in, or if you had to watch the white people come into your country with there cell phones, ipods, computers, tons of snacks and meals to eat, lots of things to drink- not just water, but sodas, and they constantly showed their wealth... would you not become angered with the American people? But if you spend time with them, and get to know them, hear their stories and allow them to know your own story, you will never have a better friend. I loved more then I ever have before my going to Haiti. I made better friends then I ever have before my going to Haiti. My life was forever changed. And I know that forever, I will think of Haiti and wish that I could be as happy and as loving and as good a friend as some of those people. So before you go on talking about how we shouldn't help them when we are a country blessed beyond measure and even our homeless people get to eat everyday, consider what it would be like to be them. Think before you speak. Provide heat for your cold heart.

    1. Here is something I find funny, Americans pride themselves on helping refugees escape communism dictatorships and a Cuban who gets his foot on American soil is immediately allowed into America,
      A haitian Refugee gets on American shores he is held in custody put on a coast guard cutter and retuirned to Haiti, and you call that fair? seems its discrimination again by US against a former nation of slaves who won their own independence why isnt a haitian as valuable as a Cuban? just asking why must be a answer somewhere!

    2. Most all the Haitians I have met in the US are kind and gentle and only one of them doesn't like the US.
