That “crazy uncle” Pat Robertson lies is a well known fact. And, for those “true believers” and others that may doubt that, a quick google will bring up lots of examples. I’d chalk it up to senility, but that gives senility a bad name, and it’s already bad enough.
However, after spending 8 years spinning lies about Obama, Pat thinks the real liars are the mainstream media, particularly the “the garbage that gets written” about Trump.
The journalists are not careful. They don’t do their research, they don’t have a background, and they don’t try to get the facts. They pick up something and they run with it. I’ve seen it over and over and over again and it’s sloppy journalism.
As someone who has spent his entire career in and around mainstream media, I can truthfully say that’s a crock! Granted, there are many problems with mainstream media, but intentionally lying is not one of them. He must be thinking of Fox! (aka “Bullshit Mtn)
However, we’re talking about the methane filled bubble that Pat resides in. According to him, Trump’s comment about immigrants being “animals” was really just about the MS-13 gang.
Back to Pat and his lies,
There wasn’t any question, Trump said, quote, ‘MS-13 are animals!’
Here’s the actual quote from Hair Fuhrer, himself:
We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’re stopping a lot of them — but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.
Now, I’m up there in years, and admittedly my eyesight ain’t what she used to be, but I’ll be damned if I can see “MS-13” anywhere in that quote. He’s talking about immigrants, PERIOD!
Remember this is the same individual who referred to Mexican immigrants as…well, here’s a couple of quotes:
When Mexico sends it people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people who have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. – presidential announcement speech, June 16, 2015
What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican Government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc. – statement about his June 16 comments, July 6, 2015
Now, in fairness, MS-13 was discussed in the conversation, however, despite right-wing claims, Trump’s comment was about immigrants in general, not MS-13. If they were about MS-13, why didn’t he say MS-13 instead of talking about immigrants as a group?
Then, Pat compared Trump to Jesus. (Of course he did!)
Jesus had his words distorted. It’s the same sort of thing that has been going on for 2,000 years.
And, “false prophets” have been around for a hell of a lot longer.
Now, what was that good book quote about motes? Oh yeah, Matthew 7:3-5
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
p.s.: If my ramblings don’t revolt you, check out my FaceBook page (“Grouchy’s Grumbles”) you might just enjoy it. Better yet, you might “like” it. I’d love it if you did. It’s free (and worth every cent) and almost completely painless (other than the usual bad jokes).
