For decades conservative Christian yapping head Pat Robertson has made a living by saying really crazy shit. He says it on TV, he writes it in books, he’s on the Internet. So this crazy shit gets a lot of attention. And the shit just gets weirder and weirder.
Take the time when he blamed 9/11 on “pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the American Civil Liberties Union and the People For the American Way.” Or when he made fun of people who have plastic surgery saying they’ve “got the eyes like they’re Oriental” and then pulled his eyelids to either side and squinted. Or when he asked if mac and cheese was a “black thing.” Or when he compared homosexuality to demon possession.
But the man was not content to stop there. He had not reached the apex of his insanity. And while some people said it couldn’t be done, the man may have finally maxed out his crazy card.
On the Aug. 27 episode of The 700 Club, while discussing AIDS with co-host Terry Meeuwsen, Robertson said, “There are laws now, I think the homosexual community has put these draconian laws on the books that prohibit people from discussing this particular affliction, you can tell somebody they had a heart attack, you can tell that they’ve got high blood pressure, but you can’t tell anybody they’ve got AIDS,” he continued.
