Yesterday night, televangelist Pat Robertson suggested that the United States assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Begin with the fact that Mr. Chavez is not some dictator who took power in a coup-- he was elected in a democracy by the majority of voters in Venezuela, and then, despite the best efforts of his opponents to force a mid-term referendum on his administration, won a smashing victory again-- from the people of Venezuela.
But that apparently doesn't matter to this 'man of God.' He is willing to murder a man because he doesn't agree with him politically.
That is everything there is to say. Pat Robertson believes that he can play God and ask for the government to murder a man he doesn't like.
Robertson on Monday: "If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it,...it's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war" (watch Robertson say it)
Robertson on Wednesday: 'I didn't say, 'assassination,'
Does he think people are stupid, or what?
