Pat Robertson bears false witness.
"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.
