GRAND MULLAH PAT ROBERTSON just called for the assassination of Venezuela's President

Not even joking here. click the link above. He is talking about how it likely wouldn't even mess up our oil supply and we shouldn't waste time with wars down there. He repeats the danger of their control over Venezuelan oil says we should just kill him.

I'm shocked beyond words. At what point did any of you think we'd here a national religious leader to millions call for immediate assassinations of world leaders? This man is a leader of millions of Christians and he's calling for a killing. a partial transcript is below. you need to watch the video.

You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war.

...

And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, 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.

here's a good update...

The article notes that the President of Venezuela was popularly elected, and not a dictator as Robertson assumes.

This is serious stuff here. Robertson must be made to take responsibility for his words.
