More Robertson - Professors are killers

H

hipsterdufus

Former GOP presidential candidate Pat Robertson is on a freakin roll baby!
What a year for him. Now he's calling liberal professors killers! Right on you mad man - perhaps we should assasinate them too. :roll:

ROBERTSON: Ladies and gentleman this is a fascinating book. If you want to, you'd better take your blood pressure medicine before you read it, but it's "The Professors: The 101 most dangerous academics in America" and that's just a short list of the 30-40,000 of them, they're like termites that have worked into the woodwork of our academic society and it's appalling. This is available at CBN.com and book stores everywhere, and you really ought to read it and be informed.

TERRI: It’s interesting that so many conservatives haven't seen this because decades ago we were told that infiltrating education was the way to take over the country, we should have been on alert.

ROBERTSON: They gamed it, these guys are out and out communists, they are radicals, you know some of them killers, and they are propagandists of the first order and they don't want anybody else except them. That's why Regent University for example is so terrifically important and why we're setting up an undergraduate program that hopefully will see shortly 10,000 students, and then from there 250,000 because you don't want your child to be brainwashed by these radicals, you just don't want it to happen. Not only brainwashed but beat up, they beat these people up, cower them into submission. Ahhh! "The Professors", read it.

Because most of the Christain, right-wing nuts need to hear him to combat our "overexceedingly liberal media". I mean everyone needs a source of information no matter who it is. Or how dumb it is.

He wouldn't have been shut down in Colombia.

I am willing to go out on a limb here, but I'm fairly certain that most people who are religious, conservative or both, believe that Robertson is nothing more than a crack pot demagogue.

Agreed...From a previous post...

cnredd said:
Some members here are more than happy to report on the tactics of the religious fringe in an attempt to smear the whole religious community or Republican Party...

I'll use the biggie as an example...Pat Robertson...

Here's an old thread that was a combo of threads with the same premise...

"Hey everybody!...Look what Pat Robertson said today!!!!!"

If you check it out, you'll see the responses, especially from the Conservative contingency, were in agreement that good 'ol Robbie is a complete jackass and doesn't represent anyone with a clue...

But what do we have on this forum?...People who still want to portray him as some sort of leader for the intelligent masses...Take a look...

Robertson: Sharon Stroke is Rebuke From God

How About Calling for Assassination of Robertson?

Holy Land Theme Park? Tacky, Tacky, Mr. Robertson, and Quite Unchristian Too.

Venezuela Seeks Extradition of Pat Robertson for Terrorism

A three strike law for TV preachers?

Pat Robertson to Town: "God Hates You"

Pat Robertson Says people in Dover PA. Are doomed

I could go to posts, too, but as you can imagine, I'd be here all day...But here's something intersting to point out...

EVERYONE of these posts?..Not ONE started by someone who doesn't hate Bush...They want to equate Robertson with the party, which is something the Conservative members themselves don't even do...

Don't believe me?...Do a search...Find me a thread started by a REPUBLICAN saying anything Robertson has done or said is good...

You won't find one...

Because the Conservative contingency on this forum doesn't think that way...the same way the starters of these threads are trying to imply...

Go through those threads...You find overwhelming majority, if not unanimous thoughts on how everyone AGREES that Robertson is a turd...Doesn't that kinda make him an irrelevant debate topic?...You know...When everyone AGREES????...

But the thread starters don't WANT that...They are under the implication that they ATTACKED, so someone must come on and DEFEND...

Ain't gonna happen...

I just got done reading David Horowitz's book..."The Professors". Pat Robertson is right on. These liberal/Marxist professors are teaching our youth how to be a traitor, a pacifist, or un-American enemy loving bystanders. You people need to concentrate on the content of the book, rather than spew your hysterical rants against a great Christian man like Pat. Bunch of Communist atheists; the whole lot of you.

I never read the book. It does seem odd to attack Pat Robertson for his take on a book if you've never read the book.

I don't think that people are attacking him for his take on the book. I think they are attacking him for the language he was using to describe the teachers of our society and trying to criminalize them by equating them to murderers. That goes way beyond the review of a book and moves into the realm of slander.

Well if Pat exclaims...."some of them are killers"....is he just making it up or does the book actually say that and make some attempt to back it up with facts?

I was not trying to "flame". OR "flame-bait", whatever that is. I was just using logic on that one, who else would wacth or even further, take, Robertson seriously. Only the ones that already agree with him. Christains, who are also right-winged fanatics. Because Robertson employs religion and his right-winged dogma in every situation.

Talk about generalizing.

I'm not even religious but come one, you know what happens when you assume right?

He is a nut case, but to the crowd in the "700 Club" he is a prophet. That's how loony that crowd is.

I think you misunderstood, I was saying the Christains that are also right-winged nuts. I was not talking about Christains in general, nor do I think even a majority of Christains are right-winged nuts.

***Your premise that there are right wing nuts is total nonsense. If the majority of God-loving Christians are conservatives (which they are), then it just goes to follow that they are on the 'right' political track. Everyone on the political left side (anti-Americans) are not only politically wrong--they tend to be atheists or agnostics so as to give their socialistic/marxist ideology, a meaning. What you have against Christianity is your business, but calling true conservative Americans a right wing nut doesn't pass the test as being a legitimate comment. These right wing nuts are keeping you and your family safe from further terrorist attacks. You need to get on your knees and thank our president for having the resolve to protect the pansy left.

cnredd, when you have people in DP like ptskid saying that Pat is right on, and calling this loon a good christian, I think it's a topic worthy of continued debate.

When Pat decides that it's best to kill someone next week, or that a town will burn in hell for voting out ID in schools, I'll be there with the theocracy watch to post his latest insane rant.

You can't just dismiss Robertson. He has a huge following, he ran for president and he represents a major wing of the GOP. I sense it's a wing that you would like to go away, but you can't deny the power that the Fristians have in your party.

The reason he is being attacked...and repeatedly gets attacked on this forum...is because certain people still want to associate him with the Conservative Party...no other reason...

The fact that the overwhelming majority of Conservatives on this forum ALSO believe that Robertson is a waste is not relevant to them...

It's the same thing when certain people believe Ward Churchill or that Colorado high school teacher(Bennish?) is representative of the whole Liberal establishment...

They grab the fringe and mold it as if they're somehow mainstream...

"See?...A person on YOUR side of the aisle said something whacky, so you're ALL whacky!"...

It's alot easier than dealing with reality when you can just make up whatever you want to believe...:shrug:

Out of all the posters in this topic I have seen one person who buys into Robertson's tripe.

That represents a majority?

If you're referring to my post, I'm saying the opposite...

The majority think Robertson should be on the receiving end of a whack-a-mole game...

But the ones who start threads like these want everyone to believe that he is representative of the Conservative establishment...

It just ain't so...:shrug:

Wow, that is a pretty humble opinion you have of yourself. So basically, if you are liberal then you owe your life to conservatives and the president. If you are conservative, you are immediately considered a better person.

You're right. I bet you couldn't find a singer person on this forum or anywhere else for that matter that believes that you can go TOO far conservative. After all, killing abortion doctors is definitely the way to go and it shows a complete understanding of the scriptures that Jesus Christ himself was trying to spread. In fact, I'll go one farther, I bet that Jesus would be poppin those evil doctors off left and right if he was here today! Oh yeah, and that pesky 50% of america that considers themselves as liberals or democrats should also be wiped out as well. Since they are "pansy's" and "anti-american" they don't deserve to be here either.

Why is it that 1/2 of americans get to tell the other 1/2 what it means to be american? I would think that both opinions would have equal say. Thanks for straightening me out on that PTSKID. You are a true patriot!

No, a lot of people associate him with a radical wing of Christianity, for example the fanatics who want ID taught in schools like he does. He needs to be discussed because we need to constantly expose him for what he is. I'm sure most of his followers are conservatives, but the important thing is to keep his type out of any political office.
