Robertson: Why Is it Bigoted To Speak Out Against Muslims? [VIDEO]

Oh, Pat Robertson, so old, so rabid, so crazy.  It’s been a long time since there have been any natural disasters that he can blame on the country’s acceptance of homosexuality, so it’s time to turn to another boogeyman — Muslims. 

Robertson calls on his followers to renounce them as people renounced the Nazis.

Via Mother Jones:

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?

Robertson then concludes that Muslims, like facists and communists, are “slowly and surely trying to exercise domination over the world.”

Watch Roberston’s video below, courtesty of Right Wing Watch.

So now we are being told that there is no command in Islam to rule over EVERYBODY ? Over every land and country ?

Fai'zah J..... You lying ?? Why ? Islam takes the rights away from Non-Muslims. What YOU think means nothing. The point is islam treats the Non-Muslims as inferiors ! LEGALLY

Your a bigot if you speak out against Muslim's as a whole. You can not compare that to speaking out against Hitler. Hitler and the Nazis were not the entire German population. I don't understand why these fanatics can't grasp this concept.

Sorry, the "same" brush.

Robertson, as is his wont, is painting all Muslims with the brush. There is a spectrum of belief amongst those of the Islamic faith, as as there is for Christians and other religions. Some are intolerant and bigoted. Others tolerant, thoughtful and kind. I have worked for and with people of Islamic faith whose values more closely matched mine and the preachings of Christ than Robertson's hate mongering drivel.

Everyone always assumes that Muslims want to impose Sharia on all others, but they have no qualms about so-called Christian values and Christian laws being imposed on everyone.

According to all historical accounts Muslims, Christians and Jews interacted harmoniously with one another. It wasn't until one group (and not the Muslims) grew arrogant and wanted more and more even at the expense of everyone else, that the rift grew. All three groups came from a common patriarch - Abraham, but I guess people forget that or rather reject that too..

It is not hate propaganda Marg!
Try going to websites about the terrible persecution and slaughter going on all over the world by muslims ethnically cleansing their countries of christians, also jews in some areas!
Try; Barnabus Fund, Release International, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Open Doors etc.
They have done this for centuries because they want a worldwide caliphate of only muslims and ruled by Sharia law, which is so barbaric!
You need to investigate online and you will soon find out what the false religion of islam is all about!

@Ron G, you are believing the media spin on things. Most citizens of Iran do not have anything against Americans, but they do have something against American leaders invading their country. You are citing extremists and not the general populace. The government often does not represent the feelings of a people as a whole. Stop buying into all the spin that justifies sending more troops here and more troops there. Do some investigating yourself of things, not what the media is spoon feeding you. Same goes for Arabs, the people are people just like you and me, with feelings and dreams and love and compassion. It's so easy to dehumanize a whole group of people and make them into faceless enemy robots all fighting for the same cause of world domination when in fact it just is not so.

Pat Robertson needs to actually read the Quran for himself. Most supposed "violence supporting" scriptures from the Quran are taken out of context. I have many Muslim friends and believe me, none have taking over the world on their agenda, and are the sweetest, most caring and respectful people I know. All religions have their fringe extremists, how else do you explain the KKK ? but would you say they speak for all Christianity ? What about all the murders committed in the name of Christianity throughout history ? should we all be judged by these people? To compare Islam to Nazis is extreme and ignorant. But I am questioning the health of Pat Robertson's mind lately, RE: the video on divorcing someone with Alzheimers, though a spin was put on his comments, he wasn't quite saying it the way Care2 spinned on it. But none the less he was condoning baling on a sick spouse.

It is one thing to criticize Nazis or the KKK etc. But it is not Ok to blame all German people for what the Nazi's did. All Muslims are not terrorists. Just a all whites are not KKK or racists! The key word is All. Pat Roberts and many others don't know the difference! The key word is Bigot!
