Robertson attacks Pihlaja

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested on-air that American operatives assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop his country from becoming "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism."

Robertson has made controversial statements in the past. In October 2003, he suggested that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device. He has also said that feminism encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

In response, liberal activist, Stephen Pihlaja, called the comments "outrageous and... ignorant and... ah! I mean, seriously, you know? Do people really listen to this asshole?" Additionally, Mr. Pihlaja called for the asassination of Mr. Roberts: "We don't need MoveOn.org to spend another $200 billion on a publicity war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

But I gotta say, since becoming a Feminist I have eaten several of my children and practiced some witchcraft and become a lesbian. I think it's well known that I support Socialism. Shit, Roberts nailed it.
