This guy has forfieted his right to stay live in my country a long time ago.
"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it," Robertson told viewers on his "The 700 Club" show Monday. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war." Watch video of Robertson's comments

Robertson, a contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 1988, called Chavez "a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us badly."

"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said. "We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one 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."

Robertson accused Chavez, a left-wing populist with close ties to Cuban President Fidel Castro, of trying to make Venezuela "a launching pad for Communist infiltration and Muslim extremism all over the continent."

"This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen," he said.

Chavez has said he believes the United States is trying to assassinate him, vowing that Venezuela, which accounts for more than 10 percent of U.S. oil imports, would shut off the flow of oil if that happens.

The Unites States has denied such allegations in the past.

Executive orders issued by Presidents Ford and Reagan banned political assassinations.

Robertson's comments Monday were the latest in a string of controversial remarks in recent years by the religious broadcaster and founder of the Christian Coalition.

Last October, during the heat of the presidential race, Robertson told CNN that during a meeting with President Bush before the invasion of Iraq, the president told him he did not believe there would be casualties. The White House strongly denied the claim.

In May, during an ABC interview, Robertson ignited a firestorm with his response to a question about whether activist judges were more of a threat to America than terrorists.

"If they look over the course of 100 years, I think the gradual erosion of the consensus that's held our country together is probably more serious than a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings," he said.

Defending his remarks in a letter to Sen. Frank Lautenberg, Robertson insisted he was not being cavalier about the 9/11 attacks. But he also refused to apologize, saying Supreme Court rulings on abortion, religious expression in the public square, pornography and same-sex marriage "are all of themselves graver dangers in the decades to come than the terrorists which our great nation has defeated in Afghanistan and Iraq."

A 'nuke' for Foggy Bottom

In October 2003, Robertson, criticizing the State Department during an interview on "The 700 Club," said "maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up," referring to the nickname for the department's headquarters in Washington.

State Department spokesman Richard Boucher called the remark "despicable."

In July 2003, Robertson asked his audience to pray for three justices to retire from the Supreme Court so they could be replaced with more conservative jurists. "One justice is 83 years old, another has cancer and another has a heart condition," he said.

Robertson insisted he was only calling for prayers for the justices to retire and was not asking his followers to pray for their demise.

In November 2002, Robertson charged that the Muslim holy book, the Quran, incites followers to kill people of other faiths and disputed Bush's characterization of Islam as a religion of peace.

"It's clear from the teachings of the Quran and also from the history of Islam that it's anything but peaceful," Robertson said in a subsequent interview with CNN. "Of course there are peace-loving Muslims. But at the same time, at the core of this religion ... is jihad, and it is to subject the unbelievers either to forced conversion or death. That's what it teaches."

I'm not saying I want him to die, but he's just too much of an asshole to let live.

Wow, I've never heard of him before now, but it does seem already that the world would be a better place without him.

Ha! Looks like we've flipped from "Party of Life" to "Death Cult".

It's Bush, he's a bad influence on Pat Robertson...

There has already been one US coup attempt against Chavez, last time, a popular uprising returned him to power. Even the religious right should realize him and his ideas aren't going away anytime soon. Besides, whatever happened to "thou shalt not kill"?

Dumbass motherfucker.

Hmm....celebrity death match...Falwell and Robertson, I like it.

Can't we just urge the U.S. to assassinate Pat Robertson? Funny thing is that this is probably the only time we'll hear about it since the religious right can do no wrong.

Did Robertson do anything illegal?

Let me see, NO.

But all if you think he did, right?
You fucking retard, we all fucking know it isn't illegal to voice opinions. The point is that his comments were fucking stupid and (IMO) reflective of the religious as a whole, arrogant as fuck and wholly unapolagetic.
Now get off this site, you fucking troll.

How about this? All the comments here that embrace violence? I think it is pretty obvious what those comments about killing a forgein head of state are (stupid/smart/whatever). I got a question for everyone here. All those posts that embrace violence, are they progressive and civilized things to be thinking about?

Wow...you certainly a piece of work. Always looking to take the moral high road, eh? Doesn't matter the topic, you gotta be right, or at least go out of your way to show everyone else how incorrect or inferior they are. Man...

And...I think it's safe for me to say that you don't know nearly as much as you think you do about killing and violence. Shut the fuck up. I know I can't be the only one that's tired of seeing your fucking name show up.

Can we vote on a motion to lock Kilo in B&T rather than the Cock Farm?...

Don't you see the hypocracy here? I do. Here is a man who wants to kill someone else. Then everyone else posting here wants to kill him too.

there's no reasoning with kilo here... you can make all the points you want to em and it wont matter... at a certain level kilo is even right that we hate pat robertson because of unpopular speech and we ourselves pose unpopular speech to hurt pat robertson..

on another level... robertson is much like jerry fallwell who makes braindead comments over shit they have no knowledge of.. such as aids and 9/11 is punishment from god for our sins... or the leader of a country should be assasinated because he doesnt follow your rules... Given if we were planning on invading it would certainly save lives, but shit... i dont think that iraq was even worth it...

now on should patty have his nutsack slit open and fire ants embedded under the skin? probably but thats cause I have no tolerance for people like him and fallwell who try to twist everything to thier own whims..

Yes you did.

Conspiracy to commit murder.

If you said something like "I should die." "I am worthy of death." "I wish you would die." that is a different story. When you said 'we', you are now planning to commit a felony with other people on this board, which is conspiracy to commit murder.

Don't you think foul language is the sign of a simple mind trying to express itself in way too complex for it to understand? I do.

You can do anything you want to. I don't care, but when you plan to violate my rights then you are not only breaking the law and commiting a felony, you are also violating my civil rights. It is called the first amendment. I have unlimited 1st Amendment rights, which is the right to communicate politically, economically, and artistically. "We should kill you" is not any of those and is illegal.

Guess what buddy, I can almost guarantee that I and several other members of this site that already don't like you are in fact, quite a bit smarter than you. I can tell because you are trying a bit too hard to appear intelligent.

Look man, until you realize how to bite the bullet and say sorry, i was wrong, you are going to have a bumpy and short ride here.

What is wrong with I just posted?

Now I'm I right? People getting together to plan a killing is illegal? While voicing an opinion someone worth killing is AOK given the principles of democracy we live by? So something like "This person is worthy to die" "I wish the government killed this person" is AOK and is only an opinion? While "We (should plan together) to kill him" and "I'm going to kill you" is highly illegal?

BTW you are soooooo PC. "Wrong and right" if I understand you correctly has more to do with PC than any kind or ethical code or legal code. If I understand you correctly you want me to appologize for presenting the distasteful truth.

Now am I right about people who use foul language? I think you know I'm right again.

NO listen motherfucker. The principles of democracy are exactly what we are taking adavantage of when we say "Man, we should kill you...". You are annoying as fuck, because all you can apparently do is hold your breath and maintain your adamant refusal to open your eyes!

And I am intelligent and love to cuss. So do most of the other smart people here. I believe that it adds flavor and zest to our language.

Taking advantage of democracy? Who is the one here who wants me to shut up?

Maybe I'm just doing what democracy allows me to do and you have a problem with it. BTW that is texbood PC.

Plus '"Man, we should kill you" is not democracy. It is you and others planning to violate my civil rights which is no where near even being democratic.
