Pat Robertson is a Terrorist

He's just not the stereotypical version. You know, he's not brown. Or Muslim. So most of the American public will shake their weary litlle heads when I say "Pat Robertson is a terrorist".

On Monday, Robertson called for American agents to "take out" President Hugo Chavez, the democrtically elected leader of Venezuela, so that he could not become a "launching pad for communist influence and Muslim extremism".

In his Fatwa Robertson said we don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one strong arm dictator:

It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.

You know who calls for the assasination of world leaders because they don't like them? Osama bin Laden. Mainstream Christians typically do not issue fatwas against other countries, though this is apparently exactly what Roberton has done.

Robertson is fond of the term Islamo-Fascist, but then there are quotes like these:

We at the Christian Coalition are raising an army who cares. We are training people to be effective -- to be elected to school boards, to city councils, to state legislatures, and to key positions in political parties.... By the end of this decade, if we work and give and organize and train, THE CHRISTIAN COALITION WILL BE THE MOST POWERFUL POLITICAL ORGANIZATION IN AMERICA.
Fundraising letter, April 1991

An army who cares.... where have I heard that? What's amazing is how prophetic that quote actually was, as Mr Robertson's Christian Coalition is one of the most powerful political entities in America now, fourteen years later.

The Constitution of the United States, for instance, is a marvelous document for self-government by the Christian people. But the minute you turn the document into the hands of non-Christian people and atheistic people they can use it to destroy the very foundation of our society. And that's what's been happening.

So the pattern here is that it is ok to have a Christian theocracy in power in the US, but no theocracies anywhere else in the world? Or is it that theocracies are fine, as long as they are Christian theocracies, and no other type?

And of course, this is not the first time Robertson has advocated assassinations abroad, just the first time someone has called him on it.
I know it sounds somewhat Machiavellian and evil, to think that you could send a squad in to take out somebody like Osama bin Laden, or to take out the head of North Korea, but isn't it better to do something like that, to take out Milosevic, to take out Saddam Hussein, rather than to spend billions of dollars on a war that harms innocent civilians and destroys the infrastructure of a country?

Is Pat Robertson, the militant extremist Christiano-fascist, a terrorist? He issues fatwas against world leaders, wants the whole world to be a theocracy, and expects the whole world to cleanse the infidels that challenge his religious rule.

Pat Robertson is our Osama bin Laden, he just found a less violent way to sway his sheep.
