The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Rayn: believes that “a nation of SHEEP shall be ruled by PIGS.”

Kenny C.: Haiti?

Kenny C.: or the PIGS that force the sheep to pay for the White-Devil haters?

Rayn: I’m sorry, Kenny, but I was talking about the country I live in.
But, what exactly are you referring to? I’m stumped.

Kenny C.: The Pigs are forcing the sheep to pay for the white-devil haters? its just a scam, people benefiting off a tragedy. an island does NOT need money they need supplies!

Sara: Who are the white-devil haters?

Kenny C.: oh come on… my thoughts and prayers go out to those victims and family’s of the victims of the Earthquake in Haiti.
HOWEVER, I feel that this “relief” effort is too familiar.
Hatian government=white devil haters.
and they are going to steal our money, and put it in their pockets!
and the victims and people that r suffering will continue to suffer. because hatian government is more corrupt then ours! and u know what happens when people see $$?

Kenny C.: we wanna send supplies, but bush says NO SUPPLIES SEND US CASH…Why? bush didn’t get enough cash from everything he did while he was president?
guess not…

Kenny C.: It is people like Bush that are the reason why Hatians call us White Devil.

Katherine C.: I know you meant that in a political sense but for a second I imagined actual sheep being led by pigs, lol

Rayn:  “White devil haters”? The Haitian government? And, the Haitians? I’ve never heard of such a thing before, Kenny.

He claimed that, for this reason, “ever since, [the Haitian people] have been cursed by one thing after the other,” implying that the Haitian people deserved to suffer from this month’s devastating earthquake.
