Pat Robertson has proven that idiotarianism isn’t confined just to the left when he called for somone to nuke the US State Department.
Statements like that only give ammunition to people who want to paint conservatives as a bunch of wacko extremists. There is no excuse for calling for anyone to engage in acts of terrorism against the United States, no matter who the hell is in charge. In this country, we don’t solve our problems with nuclear weapons. We solve them by going to the ballot box. If that isn’t clear for Rev. Robertson, there are plenty of places where violence is routinely used to solve political problems. I would suggest North Korea or Iran as places where such an ideology would be perfectly acceptable.
Quite frankly, I think it would be great if the Justice Department prosecuted Robertson for inciting terrorism under the PATRIOT Act and sent his ass to Gitmo. After all, I’m sure he’d love being in the company of more violence-loving religious fanatics.
