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.
