Pastor Hagee: Der Fuhrer Was Fufulling God's Will

First, Bush claimed that God told him to bomb the shit our of a sovereign nation.
Now John Hagee is claiming that the 20th century's greatest mass-murder was directed by the Almighty himself to exterminate the Jews.

Going in and out of biblical verse, Hagee preached: "'And they the hunters should hunt them,' that will be the Jews. 'From every mountain and from every hill and from out of the holes of the rocks.' If that doesn't describe what Hitler did in the holocaust you can't see that."

He goes on: "Theodore Hertzel is the father of Zionism. He was a Jew who at the turn of the 19th century said, this land is our land, God wants us to live there. So he went to the Jews of Europe and said 'I want you to come and join me in the land of Israel.' So few went that Hertzel went into depression. Those who came founded Israel; those who did not went through the hell of the holocaust.

"Then god sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says -- Jeremiah writing -- 'They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,' meaning there's no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don't let your heart be offended. I didn't write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel."

Either God is a real sick and twisted asshole, or this Hagee fellow is a top-of-the-line lunatic.
And yet, Obama had to denounce and renounce Jeremiah Wright for his comments. Will John McCain do the same with Hagee? I'm not gonna hold my breath. Here's the audio:

Don't. McCain's "base" won't question him one bit. Of course 60% of Kentuckians hold Nazi Hagge's views as their own.

Hagee is a lunatic, and McCain is a doddering fool for not distancing himself from him while he has this (second) chance to do so and to do so decisively.

Much hay can be made of this in the general election, and will be. He'll lose an independent for every Rapture-ready voter he gains by clinging to this nutbag.

I actually heard someone on Hardball claim that McCain was showing excellent judgment by distancing himself from Hagee before the relationship could become an issue.

And then she said, "Of course, this could never be as big an issue as Reverend Wright was for Obama."

Of course.
