“If I had to guess, I’d say it must have to do with Chile’s persecution and attempted prosecution of their great former leader, and a personal hero of mine, Augusto Pinochet – who, it should be noted, had never been convicted of a crime when the Lord called him home three years ago.” The popular host of ‘The 700 Club’ and longtime bingo circuit icon also added, “General Pinochet not only assisted the CIA in the overthrow of Chile’s Marxist government, but is widely credited with personally arranging the meetings of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of his countrymen with Jesus.”
I hope this fucking charlatan receives a one-way ticket to hell, the scumbag.
Late Edit from RalphyFan:
I also missed it at first read, Jonathan, but it looks like that post may not be for real. The topic tags include "political humor," "satire" and "snark," and if you do a quick search on Pat Robertson and Chile you find many similar efforts, including one blaming the earthquake on a pact between Chileans and Chupacabra. So, much as it annoys me to have to say so, I think we may have to give Robertson a pass on this. (That said, the "scumbag" label stays.)
