Robertson's Fatwa on Hugo Chavez

Televangelist calls for Chavez' death- I know this is just crazy old Pat Robertson calling for the US to assassinate Chavez, but you have to wonder about a rightwing that continually harps on the violence of Islam, while one of its top religious and media leaders says things like this. It's a gift to every terrorist in the world that extra-judicial violence is being endorsed on US television.

Even some Freepers think this is idiotic:

Never nod when you can wink. Never say something that stupid on tape.
I mean, really Pat, how gauche not to promote US assassination outside the tried and true manner of Allende, where we lie about our subversion of Latin America countries.
