What seems to be lost in all of the hubbub is that Roberston pretty much acknowledges that the war in Iraq is over oil and nothing else. His comment?
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 I don't think any oil shipments will stop.
He is worried about oil shipments? WTF?!?!? Apparently the taking of a man's life is of little importance because we need oil to keep those God-fearing companies like Shell and Exxon in business so they can do the Lord's work. I seem to have forgotten that Jesus was out trying to start wars over oil and in the interests of only his small corner of the Earty, pitting the Galileans against Bethlehemians. How could I have forgotten the God of trickle down economics when we have such great men of God like Robertson?
Where is the Conservative outrage that this man is somehow implying that the Iraq war is over oil? Oh I forgot, it's okay for him. Obviously, there are 2 sets of standards at work here: Those for Bush and Those Against Bush.
This is also the guy who commented that a small nuke should be used on Foggy Bottom, VA where the State department is set up. Or follow this moron's logical progression. He goes from this:
A Supreme Court ruling is not the Law of the United States. The law of the United Sates is the Constitution, treaties made in accordance with the Constitution, and laws duly enacted by the Congress and signed by the president. And any of those things I would uphold totally with all of my strength, whether I agreed with them or not.... I am bound by the laws of the United States and all 50 states ... [but] I am not bound by any case or any court to which I myself am not a party.... I don't think the Congress of the United States is subservient to the courts.... They can ignore a Supreme Court ruling if they so choose.
-- Pat Robertson, speaking to a group of Washington Post writers, as reported in the Washington Post, June 27,1986
Supreme Court decisions are binding in the court systems ... but in terms of general law, which binds every citizen, why should you and I be bound because of the ineptitude, if you will, or the skill of one or more defense lawyers, or the plaintiffs in any particular lawsuit?
-- Pat Robertson, The 700 Club television program, October 23, 1987. No wonder he couldn't pass the Bar Exam: any decision by a court at the federal level becomes law, binding upon all citizens.
Wow, I wish I had learned this brilliant piece during law school. I could've just said, "I"m sorry but you have to give me an A+ because the law doesn't apply to me." What a fucktard this guy is......
