"Bush administration officials Tuesday dismissed Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson's call for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez as the remarks of a private citizen, but Venezuela accused Robertson of promoting terrorism."
I can't even tell you how giddy this type of shit makes me.
It makes me happy because it reveals precisely how meaningless the term "terrorist" is.
"Terrorist" is just another way of saying "not us, and not taking our shit."
This is what Robertson said, in part:
"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."
Do I have any Red State readers? I sure as shit hope so. Listen up, knuckleknuts.
Gentle reader, imagine if you will, what might happen if an Arab network aired video of the most well-known Islamic imam in the Arab world suggesting that Bush should just be assassinated, it's better than a war and it should just be done and gotten over with?
And you know Robertson is going to chalk this up to some anti-Christian undercurrent.
