Its Official: Pat Robertson is Batshit Insane

U.S. evangelist calls for assassination of Chavez, note, that's Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez he's recommending be assassinated, the head of a foreign country this hypocritical asshat Christian Coalition is advocating the murder of.

Let's see aside his blatantly hypocritical religious views (you, turn the other cheek, thou shalt not kill, those little things). Let's just focus on a spokesman for a large group of religious people advocating the assassination of a foreign leader. Has that sunk in yet? That Pat Robertson is around the bend, batshit insane and off his fucking rocker? Are you there yet? I'll wait.

Here, here's a quote from the linked article,
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said during Monday broadcast of his religious "The 700 Club" program.

"We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator," he continued. "It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

From later in the article, it appears Pat missed his window since "Political assassination as U.S. policy has been prohibited since 1976." Damn, time to get that time machine project underway again, isn't it, nutjob?

Yep, that's how we deal with people we don't like, Pat, we murder them! Yeah, Christianity. Yeah! By the way, Christianity rhymes quite well with Insanity, I wonder why that is?
[Update: Guess who's trying to retract his moronic statements? Hmm, not hard to figure out that he's attempting to spin his statements to mean something else. So now he's saying he didn't intend on calling for an assassination of a foreign leader, just a kidnapping, which is still illegal, still ridiculous for him to say and still grounds for his public derision, shunning and pointing-at-him-and-laughing. But its kind of hard to spin garbage like this:
"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it."
How is that discussing taking him out, this is very clearly talking about assassination.]
