Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson has called for the United States to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, calling him "a terrific danger" bent on exporting Communism and Islamic extremism across the Americas.
"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson told viewers on his "The 700 Club" show Monday. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war."
I am not sure how encouraging murder became acceptable in what is promoted as a 'Christian' TV show, but Pat again makes it clear he needs to spend a little more time studying Jesus.
Stageleft has this to say on Pat, and the media's notice of his action.
Christian extremist Pat Robertson recently called for the assassination of a foreign leader from the pulpit - you can bet your hindmost parts that if it had been a Muslim cleric advocating that sort of policy the media would be all over it… as it is, the sheeple shrug because (wait for it) “it’s not the same thing”.
