Pat Robertson bears false witness.

The Reverend Pat Robertson, decided that he needed to lie his way out of his calls to kill the President of Venezuela. The Reverend is following the Right Wing Handbook of blaming the messenger and claiming his words were "taken out of context."

"I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces should '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 [Associated Press], but that happens all the time," Robertson said on "The 700 Club" program.

Just a refresher for those who missed what the "good" Reverend really said:

"If he (President Chavez) thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it," said Robertson on Monday's program. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war."

Hard to see how this is "taken out of context." Pat, not only are you a disgusting human being who cloaks himself in religion and then calls for the death of unbelievers a la the Taliban, you are a fucking liar.

After this was posted: "Is it right to call for assassination? No, and I apologize for that statement," Rev. Pat Robertson said in a written statement. So Pat, first you say it, then you say you didn't say it, then you apologize for saying it. So I guess I was right about you, you are a fucking liar. But I give you props for admitting you are a liar, too bad your buddies in the White House, on Limbaugh, and Faux News don't have your balls.
