"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," Robertson said. "It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop."You read that right. A preacher is openly advising the government to murder the legitimately elected president of Venezuela. But then, he's been openly asking God to kill Supreme Court justices, so his fixation on murder may just be a symptom of a broader pathology.
Robertson has made controversial statements in the past. In October 2003, he suggested that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device. He has also said that feminism encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."Now imagine if anyone not on the right had ever suggested blowing up the State department. They'd be getting raped in Gitmo with a broom handle right now.
