I love crazy people. They say funny things. They’re unpredictable. They always make me ponder weird shit like “hey, maybe they’re the ones living in the real world!” Why, I have a homeless guy that lives in my very neighborhood who walks around all day, entrenched in a heated argument with his imaginary friend. My gf and I will wake up at two in the morning to hear on the city street below, “I cannot believe you just said that!! How dare you! I oughta leave your ass here on the street right now, mutha f*ka!” We just smile and give each other a “That’s our crazy guy!”-type look and go back to sleep.
I digress. You want to know when crazy people aren’t cool? When they have power. And Pat Robertson is one powerful, bat-shit crazy bastard. Why, just yesterday he called on our govt. to assassinate Hugo Chavez.
I was going to just put that over in the quicklinks, but then thought to myself, “I bet Pat Robertson has said all kinds of crazy-ass things!” I was not disappointed (scroll down a bit).
“oooooh! Did I just say that?”
Here are a couple of my favorites:
- “With all due respect to those dear people, my friend, God Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew.”
- “You say you’re supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don’t have to be nice to them”
- “(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
- “The strategy against the American radical left should be the same as General Douglas MacArthur employed against the Japanese in the Pacific . . . bypass their strongholds, then surround them, isolate them bombard them, then blast the individuals out of their power bunkers with hand-to-hand combat. The battle for Iwo Jima was not pleasant, but our troops won it. The battle to regain the soul of America won’t be pleasant either, but we will win it.”
That’s our Pat!
