How am I sticking up for him? I just posted an aritcle that relates to what is being talked to to. He recanted and said take him out could also mean kidnapping which is pretty fucking stupid as everyone knows what he meant.

The sad part is millions of people don't even let the thought of disagreeing with this man cross their weak minds. That they donate millions upon millions of dollars to this manipulative, mean son of a bitch without question.

 

 

If there is a hell, Pat Robertson will spend all of eternity burning in it.

"Islam" comes from "salaam," which means "peace?" Huh. I thought that "Islam" came from the ancient Farsi word for "car bomb." I guess you learn something new every day.

 

Good ole Pat Robertson, you can always count on him to say something unbelieveably offensive to everybody else except right-wing Christian zealots. Next thing you know, he'll be trying to canonize Eric Rudolph as the patron saint of abortion clinic bombers. You just gotta love a guy that can carry out a bombing campaign against the Olympics, gay bars, abortion clinics and porno shops and then outrun the FBI for five years while dumpster-diving and living in an underground hidey-hole in North Carolina. I think he turned himself in because he missed hot showers and cable TV.

 

After we assassinate Chavez and seize Venezuela, we can re-name it "Exxonzuela." It will be a nice match for Bananama, oops---I mean Panama, then we'll have a set of Latin American dictatorships run by puppet governments that totally serve North American economic interests. Anybody heard from Manuel "Pretty Boy" Noriega lately? I hear he gives blow jobs for cigarettes in Marion.

One thing is sure about Noriega, he isn't going to be on any "proactiv" commercials anytime soon.

Venezuela to seek legal action against Robertson

29 Aug 2005 02:34:50 GMT

Source: Reuters

CARACAS, Venezuela, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Sunday his government would take legal action against Pat Robertson and potentially seek his extradition after the U.S. evangelist called for Washington to assassinate the South American leader.

 

Robertson, who later apologized for the remark, said he was expressing his frustration with Chavez's constant accusations against the administration of President George W. Bush.

 

"I announce that my government is going to take legal action in the United States ... to call for the assassination of a head of state is an act of terrorism." Chavez said in a televised speech.

 

The fiery left-wing critic of Bush's foreign policy who frequently charges the U.S. government is plotting to kill him, called Robertson "crazy" and a "public menace."

 

He said Venezuela could seek Robertson's extradition under international treaties and take its claim to the United Nations if the Bush administration did not act.

 

Robertson, the founder of the Christian Coalition and a leader of the Christian right that has backed Bush, said on Monday that if Chavez "thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it."

 

U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said political assassination was against the law and was not U.S. policy.

 

Relations between Chavez and the United States, the top buyer of the OPEC nation's oil, have deteriorated since Chavez survived a brief 2002 coup he says was backed by U.S. authorities. Washington says it is not plotting to kill Chavez and denies involvement in the coup.

 

Chavez said on Friday Bush would be to blame if anything happened to him. In the past, he has said Venezuela, the world's fifth-largest oil exporter, would cut sales to the United States if he was assassinated.

 

A close ally of communist Cuba, Chavez presents his self-proclaimed revolution as an alternative to U.S. policies in the region.

 

Washington says Chavez is a negative influence who uses oil profits to fund anti-democratic groups in South America while becoming more authoritarian at home.

 

U.S. civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, visiting Venezuela on Sunday, called Robertson's remarks "immoral" and rejected U.S. government claims against Chavez.

The devil made him say it

Published August 28, 2005

 

Televangelist Pat Robertson's flip-flop on his fantasy moment as an international assassin reminds me of a famous, if possibly apocryphal, story about David Niven as told by Christopher Buckley.

 

Niven is standing with another gentleman at the base of a staircase as two ladies in evening gowns descend.

 

Niven says: "That's the ugliest woman I've ever seen."

 

Other man replies: "That's my wife."

 

Niven: "I meant the other one."

 

Other man: "That's my daughter."

 

Niven: "I didn't say it."

 

Like Niven, Robertson backed off his now famous -- would that it were apocryphal -- remark that the U.S. should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. His exact quote from his Christian Broadcasting Network program was:

 

"You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he (Chavez) thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it."

 

Seems clear enough. That is one ugly woman. But, no, on Wednesday Robertson said he didn't say it. He said he was "misinterpreted":

 

"I said our special forces should, quote, 'take him out,' and 'take him out' can be a number of things, including kidnapping," said Robertson.

 

But then Robertson apparently reconsidered -- or re-remembered -- and apologized for what he didn't say: "Is it right to call for assassination? No, and I apologize for that statement. I spoke in frustration that we should accommodate the man who thinks the U.S. is out to kill him."

 

Well, we've all had days like that. You think it might be a good idea to "take someone out" when they're giving your country a hard time . . . and then you recall that it's illegal, against U.S. policy and, well, a tad un-Christian.

 

Robertson, of course, is well known for his spontaneous foot tastings. This is the same Pat Robertson who has urged his flock to pray for a U.S. Supreme Court vacancy "one way or the other."

 

The same Pat Robertson who in 2003 responded to a book criticizing the State Department by saying, "If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer. I mean, you get through this (book), and you say, 'We've got to blow that thing up.' "

 

And the same Pat Robertson who agreed (by nodding his head) with fellow televangelist Jerry Falwell when the latter said that the Sept. 11 attacks were the consequence of "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America."

 

The White House quickly distanced itself from Robertson's latest, pointing out that private citizens have a right to speak their minds, but that their remarks shouldn't be construed as representing U.S. policy. Noted. Americans know this without being told and, besides, are used to televangelists saying ridiculous things. It is factually true that televangelism is the reason God invented the mute button.

 

But Robertson is a problem on the world's stage where some audiences may be less sophisticated and where politicians (or dictators) are happy to embrace useful idiots.

 

"See?" they say, pausing between beheadings and stonings. "President George W. Bush and his imperialistic, oil-grubbing Christian constituency want to assassinate foreign leaders who disagree with them. Allahu Akbar!"

 

In an act of inadvertent Christian charity, Robertson has performed a great service for the world of Islam -- not so much by lending credibility to those who insist the United States is conducting a religious crusade against the Muslim world, but by making vivid the necessary distinction between radicals who exploit religion to advance a political agenda and those who practice their religious beliefs in less dramatic, more peaceful ways.

 

When Robertson says something outrageous, we recognize that he speaks for himself and not for all the Christians. We wouldn't condemn Christianity, in other words, just because one man said something extreme, irrational and murderous.

 

Which should remind us that when Osama bin Laden or other radical extremists gripping Qurans invoke Allah while murdering innocents, they are neither speaking nor acting for all followers of the Muslim faith. And though Americans know that Robertson and bin Laden are clearly not of the same school, the rest of the world -- and especially our enemies -- either does not know or is cunning enough to exploit Robertson's words to further fuel the machinery of jihadist hatred.

 

In Robertson's case, unlike Niven's, "I didn't say it," or even "I didn't mean it," is of little help when so much is at stake.

it's good this matter is getting coverage, but i also think that any press is good press.....it's good to know someone from florida is on the same page, though.
