Not only is Pat Robertson crazy, he is now certifiably senile.
In the aftermath of the storm of criticism he started over his comments about
assassinating Venezuelan President Chavez, the great preacher Pat
Robertson decides to go on the news and say everyone is misinterpreting
him. Robertson told the
Wait a minute, I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces
should, quote, "take him out," and "take him out" can be a number of things
including kidnapping. There are a number of ways to take out a dictator from
power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted by the AP, but that happens
all the time.
Now let's reflect back on his actual comments that started this nightmare:
"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."
Now either he is crazy or we are. In his first statement (the second one
listed), he clearly says we should assassinate Chavez, but then denies ever
saying it today (the first quote). I thought we might be crazy, after all he is
a man of God, but then I found two clips from Media Matter's that clears it up.
Here is the link to the
first clip where he makes the assassination comment, and here is the
link to the second clip
where he denies the comment.
Now that we have video proof that Robertson did say it, is he lying now or is
he in a state of denial. No matter what, he is now lying to the American people,
his followers and more importantly before God.
