CRAZY IS HERE TO STAY

Pat Robertson Tried To Have “Gay AIDS Ring” Video Removed From Internet, YouTube Sides With Humanity

pat-robertsonIt’s not easy to rewrite history in the internet age, folks. Just ask Pat Robertson. When America’s most revered Jurassic televangelist tried and failed to backpedal on his claim that gays in San Francisco have magical rings they use to transmit the AIDS virus to innocent straight people, he tried to get the embarrassing video pulled from the internet, but guess what? It’s out there for all eternity

According to Gawker, the bigwigs at Christian Broadcast Network, which airs Robertson’s pulpit on 700 Club, tried to get the video of what is perhaps Robertson’s most ridiculous, riotous theory yet permanently removed. CBN initially claimed copyright infringement and got it temporarily pulled from Youtube and Dailymotion, and they edited it out of its own rebroadcasts. Bt you can keep a good dinosaur down for long.

Our good pals at RightWingWatch, where the video was originally posted, filed a counterclaim with YouTube that stated the clip was protected by fair use. And guess who won? Watch Robertson practice his learned wisdom timeless comedy routine below.

    What a fucking buffoon.
    It’s actually laughable.

    First fall from “grace” was the PTL club. Next might be the 700 club. both being clubs and not churches.

  • Taliaferro

    Excellent. It is past time that bigoted right wing cretins became aware that while they may hold whatever views they like in public, once they air them in the Internet age, they are there forever. Robinson is one of the worst of the lot. There is nothing Christian about this charlatan and his empire serves only to gull people out of their money. The sooner he falls or dies that better.

    Straight to hell. That is where is this douchebag belongs.

  • Joetx

    The sad part is, there are MANY people who believe in Robertson & his teachings.

    The PTL club fell because of big-time scandals.

    The 700 club could meet that end, but they seem to be above scandals for now.

    However, their mean-spirited and hateful commentary about the LGBT community is really a scandal itself.

    This group is unworthy to represent the sacred.

    And gay people are going to burn in hell? What an ahole.

  • SICK OF THEM

    I want this s h i t stain and every bisexual in the world to commit suicide. I would enjoy watching! :)

  • 1EqualityUSA

    The harm this man does with his mouth is immense.

  • Taliaferro

    @SICK OF THEM: Have you ever actually seen anyone die? It can be a truly horrible experience. I think you would NOT enjoy watching it.

  • Ron Jackson

    Actually his nuttiness is probably does the gay community more help than harm. The more stupidity he gets caught at the lower his credibility with the average person.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Most of his followers have two brain cells held together by a spirochete. Somebody, give them penicillin!

    @Taliaferro: I watched a multiple time r@pist bleed to death after they fell down the stairs in a bar and broke their back, it was surprisingly cathartic.

    I also knew the person who pushed them. *cough*

    Sadly, his initial answer, before he went off the rails, was actually exactly the response required. “If you’re transporting an elderly man with AIDS, don’t have sex with him.”

    It wasn’t a theory according to him. He stated it as factual. So he just flat out lied, and got caught. Which should make his followers wonder, if he can just toss off such a stupid lie so easily, how much else has he lied about….

  • 2eo

    @Cam: His whole life is a sham, there is no god, afterlife, satan or anything else.

    Sadly, these lies still get a free pass in society, fortunately people are waking up every day to the real world.

    I judge christians and preachers of religion by their reactions and actions related to people like Robertson.

  • jwrappaport

    To invoke the greatest anti-theist of them all, it’s a pity there isn’t a hell for this Chaucerian fraud to go to. These people are truly monsters. They make a living preaching contempt and hatred of people whose lives they know nothing about.

    You are quite correct. Yet with his intense fixation on homosexuality a scandal could happen. But then again maybe not as so many “righteous” have fallen this way before him.

    Terry Meeuwsen is the lady who sits with Pat Robertson during these Q&A sessions.

    How does she have any dignity or self respect when she supports and enables this scapegoating of gays and lesbians.

    She apparently has 7 children, several who are adopted. She founded some kind of adoption orphanage. Surely she must love all of her children, well maybe not her gay children.

    Oh she probably tells them she loves them, but just doesn’t love their sin.

    That is why I think religious people are sick.
