Robertson: “God Even Angrier with Chile than Haiti" at The Desperate Blogger.com , Feb. 27, 2010
Citing what he described as the “the persecution of a great hero who rid their land of Godless communists” as a possible cause, prominent TV evangelist and amateur seismologist Pat Robertson today argued that the 8.8 magnitude of the earthquake that struck Chile early this morning should serve as a warning to the population that “God is even angrier with them than he is with the people of Haiti.”
“If I had to guess, I’d say it must have to do with Chile’s persecution and attempted prosecution of their great former leader, and a personal hero of mine, Augusto Pinochet – who, it should be noted, had never been convicted of a crime when the Lord called him home three years ago.” The popular host of ‘The 700 Club’ and longtime bingo circuit icon also added, “General Pinochet not only assisted the CIA in the overthrow of Chile’s Marxist government, but is widely credited with personally arranging the meetings of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of his countrymen with Jesus.”
General Pinochet, who spent the last eight years of his life fighting prosecution on human rights and other charges before succumbing to congestive heart failure in December 2006, could not be reached for comment, even by Robertson. The General–turned-Dictator has long been considered a transformative figure in the field of Crimes Against Humanity as a result of his landmark policy of ‘Forced Disappearance’, and was even honored in 1998 with the first-ever arrest warrant for a former head of state under the principle of ‘universal jurisdiction’ by Spanish Judge Baltasar Garzon, who is currently investigating former Bush Administration officials for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.
For his part, Robertson, who reportedly lobbied then-President George W. Bush on behalf of former Liberian Dictator and accused Human Rights criminal Charles Taylor in exchange for lucrative gold mining contracts, says that he is “praying that the people of Chile will heed this warning, and never again blaspheme against God and international free-market commerce by nationalizing their most precious natural resources.”

and Roger Fallihee in a satirical article argues God is punishing Chile because Obam met with atheist and agnostics on that very day-OMG?
God Triggers Quake As Obama Officials Meet With Atheists by Roger Fallihee atThe World According to Roger, Feb. 27, 2010
Members of the Obama administration held a White House meeting with representatives of the Secular Coalition for America, triggering a swift and angry reaction from God (the real, Jesus one, not Allah or James Cameron).
God, already pissed at President Obama because he's a Marxist Muslim, hit Chile with a massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake in retaliation for the ill-advised gathering. God didn't directly explain (so when does He?) why the Catholic residents of Chile were punished for Obama's transgressions but the most likely explanation is revealed with the decoding of the acronym, C.H.I.L.E. Communist Health care Ideology Liberal Extreme
God simply doesn't want the Communist Barack Obama's health care reform and other socialist ideas and liberal, extreme policies to be enacted.
How much more proof do you libtard sheeple need?
The only way to reverse the wrath of God is to impeach the liberal, Godless Democrats and replace them with real Americans like Sarah Palin.

"She's (White) One Of Us and She Worships the Real God"
Mike Lux in a recent article at Huffington Post is surprised by how popular Ayn Rand is now among US Conservatives . He is surprised because Rand was an elitist and anti-Democracy and was dismissive of all religious beliefs. But she does fit in with Glenn Beck's recent statements that the founding fathers were believers in individualism and not such bogus notions as community. This is odd because Beck is always waxing nostalgic about traditional family values and the values of traditional small town America. So Beck and other conservatives are against giving aid to the poor the lame, the sick the disenfranchised and believes the wealthy should keep all their wealth no matter how they got it even if in doing so they acted immorally or unethically since the non-wealthy have no right to judge the wealthy. Their Jesus worships materialism, wealth , power and money and would prefer a Christian quasi fascist group such as "The Family" as opposed to some liberal wishy-washy Christian Church that preaches love and tolerance and acceptance which according to Beck & Pat Robertson etc. they know Jesus is against.
Like the Tiban or other Islamic extremist who use the Qur'an to support their bizarre belief and ideology the Evangelical Christians & the Conservative Movement misuse the Bible to defend rapacious unfettered 19th century style capitalism and a fierce belief in self-reliance by which one can conclude that each of us is on our own and no one should be helped by the government or the community or anyone else. Their view of the world is that life is nasty, brutish and short and that's the way it is. Do all Christians believe this or just some ?
"The Philosophy of Me (First and Only)" by Mike Lux at Huffington Post Feb. 26
The other reason that I discounted her was, well -- how do I put this diplomatically? She was such a freak. Her twisted novels extolling selfishness and cruelty -- apparently based in part on her admiration of a kidnapper and murderer who dismembered his twelve-year-old victim and threw her head and torso at the girl's father as he sped away in a car -- are so twisted and nasty that I had trouble believing she really merited note in a discussion of influential conservatives.
But the victory of libertarian Ayn Rand disciple Ron Paul at the CPAC straw poll, the strong influences of her thinking on such CPAC heroes as Michele Bachmann and Glenn Beck, and the increasingly strident me-first-and-only-me rhetoric of a Republican party utterly captured by Tea Partiers have made me realize just how big Rand's influence is. Rand's philosophical magnum opus was a book she entitled "The Virtue of Selfishness." In it she argues not only that selfishness is moral and good, but that altruism, charity, and even kindness are evils - a "moral cannibalism" is what she called it. Like Glenn Beck, who glorified (to the laughter and cheers of the CPAC audience) the "lion eating the weak," people who are poor or weakened or in trouble for any reason are just parasites, nothing more.
Rand went even further, writing that people who place even their families and friends above their own work and desires are immoral. Rand and Beck's philosophy that selfishness is the ultimate virtue, and that any kindness or generosity or compassion toward others - even your own family and friends -- is so the opposite of what all the world's great religions and moral traditions teach us that you would think Bible toting conservatives would run from these beliefs. You'd think that the contradictions would be too great, and there are certainly rifts at times between the true libertarians and the Christian conservatives. But for political reasons conservatives try hard to keep a combination of these two philosophical strains in place at the same time, a sort of hybrid conservative that scours the Bible for quotes that can be somehow interpreted as pro-free market and against taxing the rich. My personal favorites in this genre include a Christian Coalition issues guide which argues against labor unions by quoting a verse about how slaves should obey their masters, and a guy named David Barton who argues that the Parable of the Talents (which some Bible readers might have thought was an analogy about spiritual matters) means that there should be no Capital Gains tax.
It appears that the Bush Regime and the Obama regime believe there are "Good Terrorists" those on America's side and there are bad terrorists or America's enemies. So the United States is fuding and arming and training the "Good Terrorists " in Iran who attack people who support the current Iranian Regime. Even if that means murdering, or disappearing & torturing non-combatants such as lawyers, social workers, professors etc. who defend the current Regime or who are critical of the United States.
Ray McGovern,"Iran Captures a "Good" Terrorist" by Ray McGovern at Truthout, Feb. 27
The Iranian government is celebrating the capture of Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of a violent group called Jundallah (Arabic for Soldiers of God), which Tehran says is a terrorist organization supported by the United States, Great Britain and Israel.
Jundallah is one of several groups that have been conducting bombings and other violent attacks against Iran’s Islamic regime with the aim of knocking it off balance.
In a July 7, 2008, article for The New Yorker magazine, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh quoted Robert Baer, a former CIA clandestine officer who worked in South Asia and the Middle East for nearly two decades, as saying that Jundallah was one of the militant groups in Iran benefiting from U.S. support.
Harvard Professor (Martin Kramer) Shocking Proposal: Starve the Palestinians in Gaza into Having Fewer Babies via AlterNet.org, Feb. 26, 2010
At a recent conference, Prof. Martin Kramer called for population growth in the Muslim world to be restrained and made a series of other outrageous claims.
February 26, 2010 |
Martin Kramer revealed his true colors at the Herzliya Conference, wherein he blamed political violence in the Muslim world on population growth, called for that growth to be restrained, and praised the illegal and unconscionable Israeli blockade of civilian Gazans for its effect on reducing the number of Gazans.
It is shocking that Kramer, who has made a decade-long career of attacking social science understanding of the Middle East and demonizing anyone who departs even slightly from his rightwing Israeli-nationalist political line, should be given a cushy office at Harvard as a 'fellow' while spewing the most vile justifications for war crimes like the collective punishment of Gazan children.
Kramer is after all not nobody. He was an adviser to the Giuliani presidential campaign. He is listed as an associate of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, the influential think tank in Washington of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. He is associated with Daniel Pipe's 'Middle East Forum,' a neo-McCarthyite organization dedicated to harassing American academics who do not toe the political line of Israel's ruling Likud Party.
and so it goes,
