Here is the nineteenth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is infamous Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian, Pat Robertson, for accusing Obama of making a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

21RobertsonHatPat Robertson kicked off today’s edition of the 700 Club [pseudo-Christians delinked] by interviewing Christian Broadcasting Network contributor Raymond Ibrahim, who spent most of the time rehashing a claim he said he heard from the Egyptian press that “Obama is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.”…

…Robertson said that it’s “appalling” and “shocking to think Obama may have made a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Robertson, who has previously warned that Obama has a Muslim “inclination” and might be a “crypto-Muslim,” lamented that “we’ve got a president, you wonder about where he is coming from.” He also warned the Obama administration is trying to aid the Muslim Brotherhood’s drive “to establish an Islamic super-state.” [emphasis added]

I trust you need no convincing that Robertson is a Republican.  Many highly partisan Republican incompetents, who who were political appointees under Texas Torquemada, burrowed-in. They were transferred to non-partisan permanent posts.  Hundreds of these are Roberts’ Regents University graduates.

My favorite Robertson story is how he “prophesied” that a hurricane would hit Disney World to punish them for adopting a policy of non-discrimination against LGBT employees.  The next hurricane that hit the US did considerable damage to Robertson’s Virginia Beach HQ instead. :-)

  1. I remember distinctly Pat Robertson 'prophesying' (oh dear!) that Rmoney would win the election – because the Lord had told him so!  I checked and here's a link to some others who remembered  it too http://www.alternet.org/pat-robertson-who-prophesied-romney-will-win-urges-viewers-beware-false-prophets

    As usual in the article Robertson is ignoring every mistake he has ever made and telling everyone to beware false prophets – which caused the authors of the article to look up tape of Robertson doing his own false prophecy in the second clip!  Oh MY!!!

    Thanks for reminding me about this one TC "My favorite Robertson story is how he “prophesied” that a hurricane would hit Disney World to punish them for adopting a policy of non-discrimination against LGBT employees.  The next hurricane that hit the US did considerable damage to Robertson’s Virginia Beach HQ instead. " – I do love that one too – God sometimes makes evident his sense of humour!

    I wouldn't trust Pat Robertson to tell me what the weather was doing, never mind anything else – I'd check!

     

     

     

     

  2. Good pick! He's always on the top of my list of crazies.

  3. Good picture of Robertson — photoshopped of course because I don't think he would give anyone the finger, even if he wanted to.  That would be 'un Christian'.

    Pat Robertson is the perfect example of a fanatical right wing nutjob evangelical psuedo Christian Republicanus/Teabagger!

    It isn't just this crap about Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood, nor his erroneous prophecies of hurricanes and election victories.  Look at his pronouncements on the role of a good wife (submit to your husbands; look good; women are responsible for their husbands turning to other women, etc), on abortion and a woman's right to choose; and the LGBT community.  Here's a link to Robertson on the LGBT community http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/robertson-fears-christians-will-go-jail-saving-gays-hell-stopping-them-destroying-country .

    "…If you see somebody who's not going to heaven and you really love him, you want to do what it takes to get him into heaven.  And if you don't care about him then you let him go to hell.  We are people who love …"

    Robertson and his ilk make a mockery of love, Christian love.  Their psuedo Christian "love" is analogous to hatred.

    God must be having a damn good laugh at Robertson's supposed piety!

    .

    • Believe it or not, the finger in the picture is authentic.  Altghough I doubt he intended it as such, it was part of his gestoculations diring a sermon at Regents.  The kid who put the clip whence it came on YouTube was kicked out of his college.

      I dare say, God is having a good cry over it.

  4. Well, I for one, say "BLESS YOU, BROTHER ROBERTSON!" – because if it weren't for you I would have NO idea how many Satanic Demons there are out there looking to do us harm.  Fortunately Pat has given us guidelines:

    Yoga

    Adopted Children from Foreign Countries (Not always, though)

    Paintings of Buddha

    Martial Arts Practitioners (They INHALE Demon Spirits … well, of course they do)

    Horoscopes

    Feng Shui

    Twilight – the Books & Movies

    Girls Levitating Friends at Sleepovers (HUH?!? Then again, it's Pat Robertson talking)

    Ghost Hunters

    Halloween

    I'm sure I missed a coupe – but you get the idea.

    • I have a collection of Buddha statues, from 1 inch to three feet tall, bet that would drive him crazy and he would send me straight to hell.

    • The only demon I saw was Pat Robertson himself!  He is an unintelligent pseudo Christian who knows everything about fear and intimidation, and nothing about the love, compassion and mercy that Jesus demonstrated.

    • RepubliSpeak DictionaryDemon: the source of whatever we feel like condemning at the moment.

  5. As I recall, he was constantly coming up with reasons Bill Clinton should go to hell,too.  Guess you have to be a war mongering Republican before Pat likes you.

    • Some might think that if Pat Robertson likes you, you are truly blessed.  Personally, I think you'd be cursed.  He is the demon in demonic!

    • …war mongering, gay hating, racist Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian, befre Pat likes you.

  6. …Robertson said that it’s “appalling” and “shocking to think Obama may have made a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

    I always refer to my favorite, George Carlin… :smile:
