Today on “The 700 Club,” televangelist Pat Robertson reacted to the massacre at an Orlando gay club by making the absurd claim that liberal LGBT rights advocates have aligned themselves with radical Islamists and are now reaping what they have sowed. Robertson said that liberals are facing a “dilemma” because they love both LGBT equality and Islamic extremism, and that it is better for conservatives like himself not to get involved but to instead just watch the two groups kill each other.
“I’ve tried getting myself involved in this war once before, and I barely got out with my health intact,” Robertson argued. “The LGBT lobby has become so powerful that it rivals traditional American values, and I’m sad to say that Islamic extremism is on the rise as well. It is appalling what is happening to our country, and this is proof of what I’ve been saying for a long time – the Devil is coming and he’s not going to be using the backdoor to crash the party.”
The televangelist is never without creative and conservative ideas, which he demonstrated yet again on his show. “As for solutions, we’re looking at quite a troublesome situation. The main problem here is the fact that the liberals have mixed up their priorities and have mistaken the LGBT community for a means to keep the presidency. Hell, just look at what Bernie Sanders is on about – his life seems to revolve around taxes, climate change and gay rights,” Robertson said.
He added, “That’s why I believe that in this particular situation, we need to be smart and think outside the box. And by that, I mean we need to let two of these burning problems in American society sort of cancel each other out. For example, we’re all witnessing the escalation of Islamic extremism these past few weeks throughout the country. Why don’t we simply reform our gun laws so that the Muslims and the gays have plenty of free guns to kill each other with? Like I said, it’s best for us conservatives to stand back, set ‘em up and watch ‘em fall.”
The 700 Club host also argued that “considering how many foreign militant forces and insurgents the CIA has trained, I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem to hook up the Muslims and gays with some target practice or something.” “I mean, it would be cruel to just give them free guns and ammunition and then let them waste it. If they’re going to use it, and we all know they will, we might as well show them how to do it properly. After all, this is a win-win situation for all parties involved.”
“It’s the perfect solution,” the conservative televangelist said. “The Muslims hate the gays, the gays despise the Muslims, and we can’t live with either group, not on American soil at least. And in order to make it work, I’m even willing to go against my better judgment and set up a one-time, special “Pat Robertson’s School of Get ‘Em While They’re Bent Over” target practice seminar for Muslims across America. I mean, I’m not a fan of either group, but If I had to choose, I’d rather listen to the Muslim call to prayer five times a day then electronic dance music and loud male moans.”
