Great… Just great. Pat Robertson’s on TV talking about our need to assassinate Venezuela’s president. What an idiot.
On Monday, Robertson said on the Christian Broadcast Network’s "The
700 Club": "We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time
has come that we exercise that ability."
"We don’t need another
$200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator," he
continued. "It’s a whole lot easier to have some of the covert
operatives do the job and then get it over with."
Their VP even went so far to say that "religious fundamentalism is one of the great problems facing humanity in these times" and that Robertson’s remarks were "very Christian."
I’d say he’s right on, given the filter he’s viewing this through. Why wouldn’t he think Christians are kooks when Robertson is apparently our spokesperson?
