Pat Robertson: Muslims are the New Nazis

 By Tim Murphy*

Televangelist Pat Robertson isn’t the powerful political force he once was, but as the founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network, he’s still an influential voice on the Christian Right. Yesterday, on his television show, The 700 Club, Robertson delivered a warning to a weary nation: Muslims are the new Nazis:

Robertson: I was thinking, you know, if you oppose Muslims, what is said? Well, you’re a bigot, right? Terrible bigotry. I wonder what were people who opposed the Nazis. Were they bigots?  

Co-host: Well, in that day I think they were looked down upon and frowned upon.

Robertson: Why can’t we speak out against an institution that is intent on dominating us and imposing Sharia law and making us all part of a universal caliphate? That’s the goal of some of these people. Why is that bigoted? Why is it bigoted to resist Adolf Hitler and the Nazis and to say we don’t want to live under Nazi Germany?

Not to nitpick here, but people who opposed the Nazis were not “looked down upon and frowned upon” as bigots. This was a few decades ago, so it’s understandably a little obscure, but the United States actually went to war with Nazi Germany. There was a movie about it and everything. 

As you’d probably guess, this is hardly the first time Robertson has compared a large and diverse group of people to Nazis:

Watch the following compliments of Sabbah’s Report

Here’s Robertson in 1995:

“Since the advent of the head of the Justice Department, Janet Reno, things have gotten out of control. Something is going on that is just very unwholesome in this nation….this is a shocking abuse of federal power. It is reminiscent of the Nazis. Something has got to be done.”

And in 1993:

“Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It’s no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians.”

Also in 1993:

“When lawlessness is abroad in the land, the same thing will happen here that happened in Nazi Germany. Many of those people involved in Adolph Hitler were Satanists. Many of them were homosexuals. The two things seem to go together.”

And in 1990:

“[T]he liberal media and the screenwriters…are the spiritual descendants of Goebbels and the Nazis. They’re not just talking about kikes and Jews; they’re not talking about, quote, ‘n—–s.’ They’re talking about Christians now.”

And in 1984:

“The state is steadily attempting to do something that a few states other than the Soviets and the Nazis have attempted to do, namely, to take the children away from the parents and educate them in a philosophy that is amoral, anti-Christian and humanistic and to show them a collectivist philosophy that will ultimately lead to Marxism, socialism, and a communistic type of ideology.”

So as you can see, Muslims are the new gays are the new Clinton Justice Department are the new gays (again) are the new screenwriters are the new public schools are the new Nazis; it’s worse than we thought.

    Well maybe this might inspire Alex Jones to stop blaming everything on the Nazis now. Because from what I have heard he has not stooped to blaming the Muslims for everything yet and Pat (The Rat) Robertson using that tired implication. Well you all are smart enough to know where I’m going with that.
    How old is Pat now 70? 80? You know after all these years of sighting the Bible. You would think that he would calm him down in his old age? That he would be worried about his eternal soul! I’m not Bible scholar. But is there a verse or two about false witness. Or is the man so far gone mentally that he actually believes his own lies now. Can God forgive someone if they don’t know they are lying? I don’t think so. Because if he never started lying in the first place. He would not be so deluded and crazy now. Well Pat I tried to defend you! You old Cook! Hey when you go down there? Ask Jerry how it feels to get that Jet from Israel now!

    “Muslims are the new Nazis.” Blah blah blah. That has about the same resonance as “you’re an antiSemite.” Both invectives are used daily, both invectives are used by groupings of various shadings of political idiocy, and the constant usage has rendered both invectives meaningless.
    However and not to overlook the obvious, Robertson is out of his freaking mind. Hateful old demagogue. Passed his prime and he seems to be about mid-way through middle stage dementia and/or Alzheimer’s. Robertson seems at least three quarts low in the ‘love of Christ’ department.

    So what if you say hating Episcopalians is bigotry. They’re the new Democrats!

    It almost seems to make sense, that’s why it works.

    Pat Robinson is a high ranking Free Mason, he once used the hidden hand sign on the cover of TIme Mag.

    If he is saying that Muslims are the new Nazi’s he is part of operation mocking bird, google it!.

    WW3 is coming real close, they need a bad guy everyone can agree on, and in this case its the Muslims.

    I have known Muslims all my life most and I mean 98% are as devout as your average Christian, by this I mean that they are milquetoast in their beliefs.

    Reject the hate, because without hate there are no wars.

    I come from a Evangelical Christian family and I have not attended church in about 30 years.

    Listening to what they have to say for the last 20 years makes me think the churches of America are the last place in the world to find Jesus Christ.

    Robertson is not out of line with the conventional wisdom in corporate christianity in amerika.

    Well what do you expect? He’s one of God’s little sheep dogs. Just doing what he was bred to do. They have to round up all the Jews and herd them all into Palestine. So when Jesus returns he won’t have to run all over the world chasing them down to give them their spanking and offer them their one last chance to fall down at his feet and say they are sorry for being so stubborn and convert to Evangelicalism and become perfected.
    Muslim people are in the sheep dog’s way. Sheep dogs like Pat don’t like that very much. So that’s why we are forced to have to listen to them howl at the moon a lot.

    The most decadent thing I saw of them lately is their campaign were it is written “This is Zionism” and you see Zionist how they do good deeds ( )

    But a state founded on a lie cannot be justified by doing some good deeds out of guilty conscience. It is like Bill Gates donating money. Like Slavoj Zizek said: It is like chocolate, first i gives congestion, then diarrhea.

    No matter how much they try to dissimulate and camouflage, it is important think back what Zionism really is (And also that it is not same like Jewism). I did a chapter of my film “WELTSCHMERZ” about Zionism:

    This old man needs to go to bed with his pee-pot near his bed and a big napking or a sheet to clean all the shit that comes out of his mouth. He is very soon going to the grave and he is making money with all the crap he talks and the idiots still believe this insane senile old fart. Go to bed Mr. Robertson, you are getting cold feet.
