Fake Christian Conservatives Expose Themselves As Neocon Shills Once More

Robertson and Hagee willing servants of those engendering a clash of civilizations

Fake Christian conservative Pat Robertson has hit the headlines again by throwing his hat in with Rudy Giuliani, a man who supports the continued war in Iraq, supports the preemptive bombing of Iran, is pro-abortion and is an adulterer who has been married on three different occasions.

Also noteworthy is that fact that Giuliani is supportive of gay rights, an issue, along with abortion, that Robertson has for years made the crux of his programming.

Regardless of where you stand on these issues, for Robertson to turn around and say they no longer matter, and what is more important is the battle against "Islamofascism", highlights just how much of a total and complete hypocrite the man is and how he has long been willing to be used as a political tool for the neoconservative movement.

Jerry Mazza over at Online Journal, has an excellent critique which gives further insight into the use of evangelism for political gain. Describing Robertson's Dominionist movement, he comments:

“From 1982 through ‘86, Robertson, plus other radio and TV evangelists, rallied Christian soldiers to this new political faith. It turned them literally into an army of political ops. Most of us didn’t have a clue that this ‘militant agenda’ dressed up as Christianity’s lamb was licking its chops with a scheme for a government coup that would turn the U.S. into a wolf (or Wolfowitz), seeking a world empire for the 21st Century. Yet as early as 1994, lone journalist Frederick Clarkson warned that Dominionism ‘seeks to replace democracy with a theocratic elite that would govern by imposing their interpretation of ‘Biblical Law.’’ And this to eliminate" . . . labor unions, civil rights laws and public schools.’"

Last year Robertson hit headlines for telling his viewers that Islam wants to take over the world and is not a religion of peace, and that radical Muslims are "satanic." "The goal of Islam, ladies and gentlemen whether you like it or not, is world domination," said Robertson.

Robertson's past comments also underscore the fact that nobody other than Robertson himself has done more to desert so-called Christian principles.

No matter how idiotic, Robertson has a right to say whatever he likes under the 1st Amendment. This isn't a 'hate speech' issue. The issue is that Robertson is a complete hypocrite and he is aiding the downfall of Christianity in America by defaming every major tenet of the Bible.

In April 2001 Robertson supported China's brutal policy of forced abortion and said that the Communist country was "doing what they have to do" in keeping population numbers down. It is not Christian to advocate even voluntary abortion on the part of the mother, never mind such a tyrannical model of forced abortion as part of a wider eugenics agenda as is the case in China.

Whenever the subject of implantable chips has been raised on the 700 Club, Robertson has whitewashed the issue, saying that it doesn't represent the mark of the beast and that Christians should not be concerned about it. This directly contradicts the Bible and Revelation.

Last year Robertson caused waves when he advocated the assassination of Venezuelan populist president Hugo Chavez. In doing so Robertson is nailing his colors to the wall as a firm minion of the New World Order. Chavez has rallied against the Globalists at every turn, including his recent spat with Vincente Fox and his rejection of the FTAA.

Robertson has been caught on numerous occasions flashing El Diablo Satanic hand signals on his show (pictured above) and soft-peddling for the beast system by telling Christians not to worry about Big Brother surveillance and biometric scanning.

Robertson is pro Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove Bush, pro war, and pro big government. He is a modern day Judas Iscariot. How does this help an image of Christianity that has already been hijacked and soiled by evil men who veil themselves in religion to obscure mass criminality?

Atheists channel surfing reach the God Channel, CBN and Trinity Broadcasting Network and are confronted by maniacal drooling televangelists who bark like dogs and claim to have the power to save someone's life by touching them on the head. They see the ravings of these demented lunatics and immediately say to themselves, "if that's God I want nothing to do with it."

If we do a little channel surfing ourselves we come to Pastor John Hagee, the founder of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational evangelical church with more than 19,000 active members, making him one of the nation's most influential evangelists.

No surprise then that Hagee is also doing his best to undermine the tenets of Christianity and push the neocon agenda.

In his latest book, entitled In defense of Israel ,he promises to "expose the vicious abuse of the Jewish people" and "shake Christian theology", he does this by denying the very cornerstone of Christianity itself, that Jesus was the messiah, was rejected and will come again. "how can the Jews be blamed for rejecting what was never offered?" Hagee states in the following infomercial:



Hagee preaches that Romans 9, 10 and 11 teach that Jews continue to have favor with God by the election of grace without necessarily believing in Jesus. Hagee believes that the Bible commands Christians to be supportive of Israel and the Jewish people.

In the face of commonly accepted teachings, he often makes the claim that the land of Israel has never belonged to the Palestinian people. He claims that the land was first called Palestine by the Romans, that there is no Palestinian language and that most Palestinians immigrated from Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Syria, and other Arab nations shortly before 1948.

Where does all this lead? Of course, much like Robertson, Hagee has publicly stated that he sees Iran as a threat to Western civilization and does not believe that the "Islamofascist" mentality will ever respond favorably to diplomacy. He supports an American-Israeli pre-emptive strike on Iran to take out its nuclear capability.

Hagee has received numerous honors and accolades from national Jewish organizations for his support of Israel.

These evangelical leaders are often laughed off as ridiculous figures by non Christians, the reality whether you like it or not however is that they command great influence in America, and as the neocons know, where there is influence, there is power to be had and money to be made.

Robertson and Hagee are not alone of course, there are thousands of different sects nitpicking about whose bizarre interpretations of Biblical minutia is correct while ignoring the crystal clear fundamental basics of how to successfully live your life using the example of Jesus Christ.

Meanwhile the clash of civilizations is being deliberately engendered, via the fabricated war on terror, so the elite can swoop in and pick up the pieces after civil society and the economy go down in flames.

Pat Robertson, John Hagee and their ilk are willing servants of the globalists. Their controversial comments only serve to enhance the agenda of bringing true Christianity to its knees and forcibly replacing it with a Godless one world government where the only allegiance permitted is to the state itself.

When scumbags unite
Commentary
by Larry Simons

The levels of hypocrisy to gain political power do not get any higher or more corrupt than this ladies and gentlemen. The union of crazed, sycophant Pat Robertson and the ever-corrupt, lying, boot-licking fraud Rudy Giuliani is just the most recent in the long list of right-wing openly admitted displays of hypocrisy and soul-selling to get more power, attention, press or whatever else motivates these two globalist scumbags.

I, for one, am not surprised. This is what hypocritical scumbags do: They are hypocrites and they are scum. So, actually, the endorsement makes perfect sense. But just for fun, let me give you a visual at just how sinister and mind-numbingly hypocritical this is.

For years and years, Pat Robertson has not made secret the fact that he despises things like abortion, homosexuals and more recently, terror. Although there is a plethora of issues that I could give you links, quotes, video clips or photos of that Robertson despises (all in the name of the Lord, of course), for the sake of time, and the fact that your attention span will not permit you to read an article six feet long, I will focus only on the aforementioned three issues.

HOMOSEXUALITY:

On the June 8, 1998 telecast of the 700 Club, Robertson warned that acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombs and "possibly a meteor."

Robertson also said stated that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were caused by "pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the American Civil Liberties Union and the People For the American Way."

While discussing the Mark Foley scandal on the October 5, 2006 broadcast of his show, Robertson condemned Foley saying he "does what gay people do".

Robertson clearly hates homosexuals, as seen in this clip from Larry King Live where he is overheard during a commercial break labeling callers as “homos”



and this clip:



The sheer hypocrisy here is that Giuliani is very pro-gay. And being gay is not even enough for Rudy Giuliani. Either is just being friends with him. You can also be a pedophile. Apparently, that not only gets you friendship with Giuliani, but also a job. Monsignor Alan Placa is a childhood friend of Giuliani (and known pedophile) and also an employee with Giuliani partners, a management consulting and security consulting business founded in 2002 by Giuliani.

Eric Boehlert, of Media Matters of America said that “In 1998, Giuliani codified local law by granting all city employees equal benefits for their domestic partners. Giuliani also had gays and lesbians serve openly in his administration, and when he divorced from his wife in 2000, he moved temporarily into the apartment of a wealthy gay couple.”

Here is a clip of Giuliani saying that he would march in a gay parade:



TERROR:

In 2003, Roberston did an interview with Joel Mowbray, who wrote a book criticizing the State Department, in which Robertson made the comment, “If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom (where the State Department is located), I think that's the answer”.

Read the article:
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=35036

During a September 13, 2001, appearance on The 700 Club, Falwell reportedly said of the 9-11 attacks: "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the A.C.L.U., People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America, I point the finger in their face and say, 'You helped this happen.' '' Robertson, as reported by The New York Times, replied: ''Well, I totally concur, and the problem is we have adopted that agenda at the highest levels of our government.'' Robertson later called Falwell's comments "[t]otally inappropriate."

According to CNN, later on that September 13, 2001, program, Robertson offered the following prayer: "We have sinned against Almighty God, at the highest level of our government, we've stuck our finger in your eye ... The Supreme Court has insulted you over and over again, Lord. They've taken your Bible away from the schools. They've forbidden little children to pray. They've taken the knowledge of God as best they can, and organizations have come into court to take the knowledge of God out of the public square of America."

On the August 22, 2005, 700 Club, Robertson called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, saying: "You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. ... We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, 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." Robertson later claimed, falsely, that he "didn't say 'assassinate,' " and then apologized, claiming he "spoke in frustration."

As Robertson gave his endorsement to Giuliani the other day, why wasn’t Giuliani saying, “hey, what about when you wanted to nuke the State Department?”, “what about when you blamed the United States government for 9-11?” (funny, when Ron Paul says that the United States foreign policies and bombing Iraq for 10 years caused that hatred toward the U.S., Giuliani immediately rebuked Paul and asked him to apologize, although the 9-11 Commission Report mentioned this, as well as the CIA even admitting that blowback was a major cause of 9-11) But when it comes to getting endorsed by a deranged lunatic like Robertson because it could mean votes, then Giuliani has no problems with someone blaming the U.S. government for 9-11.

Here’s a clip from Bill Maher in which Maher and actor Richard Belzer brilliantly point out how amazing it is that people look to Giuliani as this grand protector from terror when it was on HIS watch and a REPUBLICAN President’s watch when 9-11 occurred:



ABORTION:

On the September 12, 2005, 700 Club, Robertson linked legalized abortion to Hurricane Katrina, which had made landfall just two weeks earlier, saying: "But have we found we are unable somehow to defend ourselves against some of the attacks that are coming against us, either by terrorists or now by natural disaster? Could they be connected in some way?"

From his own website, Robertson said this, “In my opinion, abortion is murder. Once you begin to understand that the taking of an innocent life is murder, then that raises the bar from a 'constitutional right' to something that needs to be stopped. Abortion is murder. Now, beyond that we're looking at euthanasia. We want to begin to terminate the lives of the elderly or those who are 'terminally ill.' We have moved from a culture honoring life to a culture that begins to exalt death.”

Here is Giuliani endorsing Federal funding for abortion for poor women



Before you say, "yes, but it's abortions ONLY for poor women", keep in mind that Christians are against abortion PERIOD. Some Christians will favor abortion ONLY in cases where childbirth threatens the life of the mother, but even in those cases they are STILL against abortion, they are simply choosing whose life should be saved.

Here is Giuliani on Hannity & Colmes admitting that although he “hates abortion” that he believes in the woman’s right to choose. This makes him PRO-choice…….in other words PRO-ABORTION



Both of these scumbags are selling out their own stances on issues in order to endorse and be endorsed. Either both of these assholes are suffering from the worst brain damage one can suffer, or something very sinister is present here (or both). Robertson has continually threatened individual people, organizations and entire cities with God’s divine retribution on those entities who ignore the Bible and who do not agree with his political stances. Now Robertson stands beside and endorses someone who (at least on these 3 major issues) who completely disagrees with him. Where are the threats now?

Here is Robertson endorsing a man who committed adultery and has been married 3 times, supports attacking Iran as soon as possible, who has continually lied about his Mayoral record, ignored getting better radios for firefighters between 1994-2001, thus responsible for the deaths of 343 firefighters which has caused the entire firefighters union to hate him, scooped and dumped body parts from Ground Zero into NJ landfills and some additional remains have been used to fill potholes in NYC and has done nothing for the 9-11 first responders.

On the other hand, Robertson does not endorse other candidates who are men of faith like Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee. Huckabee, although some of his views are the same as Giuliani’s, is a minister. Ron Paul, on the other hand, would be a shoe-in for highest endorsed among Christian leaders. He wants the war over. He wants us to talk and trade with other countries and not attack them pre-emptively. He has been married to one woman for 50 years. He is anti-abortion and has delivered over 4,000 babies himself. He is a strict upholder of the Constitution and is against any law that violates the civil liberties of Americans. He is against RFID chips and National ID cards which, among many who believe in the Bible, could very well be interpreted as the "mark" many will receive mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

I am actually happy that Robertson does not endorse Ron Paul. Given the despicable statements Robertson has made over the years and the fact that he obviously has ZERO understanding of what the Constitution says, it would only hurt Ron Paul’s campaign. The fact that Robertson distances himself from Ron Paul couldn't make me happier than if I was Osama bin Laden in a room full of Neo-cons. Plus, Robertson believes in “Islamofascism” and believes Giuliani will save us from this or any other type of terroristic ideology (look how well he protected NYC on 9-11!). Islamofascism, of course doesn't exist, it is a term created by the Neo-cons to get people to stop thinking about Bin Laden.

Bin Laden is too specifically linked to 9-11, and of course, the Bush administration can’t have Americans thinking about the supposed mastermind of 9-11 now can he? So, the Neo-cons added Islamofascism to the “List of reasons to forget about Bin Laden”, along with WMD’s, liberating Iraqis and Iran.

But it doesn’t matter. Little things like facts have never mattered to people like Robertson and his ilk. He’s in the business of deceiving people. He’s a televangelist. Corruption, greed and deception are already in his job description. Hey, wait a minute. Robertson and Giulaini are a perfect match after all!
