Talmudic Scholar Pat Robertson: It’s Not Their Fault The ‘Poor Jews’ Are So Stupid (VIDEO!)

When you're a Jew/You're a Jew all the wayThe fine fellows at RightWingWatch have once again brought the most delightful of horrorshows to our attention. (How do they do it every day?) Below, you will find Pat Robertson explaining that anti-Semitism is the Devil’s Work (yes?), and the Devil hates Israel because Israel is evidence of the existence of God (oookay?) because the Messiah came from there (maybe???) and “the poor Jews don’t understand that, it’s too cosmic for most of them to grasp, especially because they don’t believe Jesus is the Messiah.” (AWESOME!) But you know, not believing Jesus is the Messiah (that and med school) is kind of their thing? Robertson joins such totally sane luminaries as Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, and war criminal congressman Allen “Well Looks Like I Will Have to Save These People From Themselves” West in thinking they know what is better for Jews than the Jews do.

Welcome to the club, Pat Robertson! It is surely a club that would have you, and that you would want to join.

      The first time I saw the somewhat iconic; 'Jesus is coming and he's going to be pissed.' was when I was in San Francisco (1974-5) and I walked down Montgomery Street to look in on Melvin Belli's office. Much to my surprise he was in and waved me in when I was standing at the window trying to look inconspicuous. I was dating a girl from his LA office and somehow he knew, and knew me. Just that your comment reminded me of that. Thanks.

      1. Jus_Wonderin

        Melvin Belli was also in a Star Trek episode.

        "In perhaps his best-known role, other than as himself, Belli appeared in a 1968 Star Trek episode, "And the Children Shall Lead." In it he appeared as Gorgan, an evil being who corrupted a group of children, one of whom was played by his son Caesar."

        1. James Michael Curley

          The robe from that part mounted on some kind of dummy was one of the many artifacts he used to have in the amazingly cluttered office.

    they know what is better for Jews than the Jews do

    And obvs, anything the Fundaments can do to bring about Armageddon sooner is good.

    ♪♫ You do that Jewdoo voodoo that you do so well ♫♪

  2. Beowoof

    Well I am sure they could be properly educated at a fine University such as Pat Robertson's Regent University, there they could learn all the latest creationism and other such horse shit.

      1. Dudleydidwrong

        OMG! What a jolt from the past! Some of their stuff got played in church one Sunday morning (back when I was sort-of a believer in something) and the mass exodus would have pleased Moses.

  3. owhatever

    And the poor Mormons think that Jesus ranks right up there with Joseph Smith and his golden table service. In Bracket B, we have Buddha v. Mohammed. Somebody gots to be wrong, and I think it's the Texas 1st Baptist Church of the Glock, with the Rev Nugent.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Zombie Charlton Heston.

        Automatic weapons, unlimited caliber, at ten paces, just for audience appeal.

  4. gout

    It is a good thing that there is someone out there who is so dedicated to understanding all the nefariousness that the devil is up to, sort of like Criminal Minds only with the devil.

    1. HateMachine

      The trick is thinking like the devil. You have to change your frame of mind, think "if I were Satan, Lord of Lies, what would I say on national tv?"

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Gotta admit, Pat's got it down pat.

        I never thought he'd pick up my legalizing drugs schtick!

  5. Schmannnity

    Robertson is slyly funny–he knows that there is no such thing as a "poor Jew." You can't control the world's finances and media and be poor.

    1. Swampgas_Man

      Remember Richie Rich, "The poor little rich boy"?

      Yeah, I never got what was so poor about him, him w/ his diamond spectacles and solid gold hair and everything.

  6. EtchySketchy

    Poor Jews, they're not a smart as them thar Wing-Nut Jesus Freaks.

    Praise the Lord and pass the banjos.

  7. OneYieldRegular

    This is like watching a Timothy Leary/G. Gordon Liddy debate going on inside the same person.

  8. Chet Kincaid

    Yeah, it's like that time Jesus cruised into the Knesset on the Silver Surfer's board and was all like, "this is simply too Cosmic for you to understand!!"

      1. Wile E. Quixote

        Was that the issue where The Fantastic Four and The Avengers pre-emptively attacked Latveria because there was evidence that Doctor Doom was building a Cosmic Cube?

  9. finallyhappy

    If we are so dumb, how come we run the media, the banks, really control everything? It is a fact- and it isn't easy because there just aren't that many of us. the multitasking is insane- I can't control the Central American banana crop and the Republican electorate of 5 midwest states w/o mixing up bananas and GOP voters.

  10. dadanarchist

    Shorter GOP: "The Poor Negros Qweeeers Wimmins Joos non-white non-straight non-Christian non-males just don't understand!"

    1. valthemus

      White Anglo Saxon Christian men as the default rulers of America is, like, soooooo 20th century. When are those GOP cats gonna get hep to that jive?

      1. dadanarchist

        Alas, probably not until we pry their privilege from their cold, dead hands. Which means about 25 more years of this bullshit.

  11. ManchuCandidate

    If you act like a prick to us, do our ears not bleed? if you tickle us with your stupid, do we not fake laugh? if you poison us with backhanded comments, do we not die a lot inside? and if you make us question why you love Israel, shall we not revenge?

    1. Angry_Marmot

      Nobody's side, everybody's side; Satan is a dealer for the House, and the House always wins.

  12. LastGasp

    Anti-Semitism is the Devil’s Work, and the Messiah came from Israel, and “the poor Jews don’t understand that, it’s too cosmic for most of them to grasp, especially because they don’t believe Jesus is the Messiah.”

    Pat, I think you just called yourself an anti-Semite — and you're doing the Devil's work.

    1. GemlikeFlame

      Was that ever really in question? After all, the Jews were responsible for offing our Lord and Savior. Love the Holy Land, hate the inhabitants. Christianity at its finest.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        "How many men does a governor have to execute, to get a little respect around here?"

        -Pontius Pilate
        -Rick Perry, also, too.

    2. Dashboard Buddha

      Folks like Robertson support the Jews only because they're needed for the final act in Revelations. "Personally, we hate the Jews, but without them we can't have a proper Armageddon".

  13. Not_So_Much

    I can't help but think Pat is in for some unpleasant surprises when he gets 'called home'.

      1. Ann_ObeyMe_Money

        AND ate his lunch, and then cleaned the lunch counter with him. The one he wouldn't have been allowed to sit at, if Johnny McAncient had had his way. Then he buffed his wingtips on McAncient's collar.

        You'd be bitter too.

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      Fucking Robertson and now dumbass McCain. Goebbels was off by 67 years and the wrong people when he said that if the Nazis leave history, they would slam the door so hard that the universe would shake and mankind will stand back in stupefaction.

      It won't be the Nazis…it will be old white male douchebags.

    2. flamingpdog

      But he still has his pride. He's dying (please, please!) to break Ron Raygun's record for years being a powerful Washington politician while senile.

    3. EtchySketchy

      I thought the dog was McCain's newest idiotic suggestion for VP.

      Has that dog been vetted? hahahahahahahahahaha

    4. drawingporno

      And can he account for the origin of every item he ate while being a POW? Other than the VC coqs?

      1. glamourdammerung

        I am sure McCain enjoyed those apricots and cigarettes that he got for selling us out.

        I know, I am being unfair. He technically started telling them information before they gave him anything.

  14. flamingpdog

    Let me get this straight – Pat can't understand why the Romanians hate the Jews because there are so few left in Romania (after the locals helped the Nutzis kill them off), but Pat can go ahead and call the Jews stoopid because there are, what, so few in *real* Virginia where in lives?

    *real Virginia does not include Moarman heathen/Jew-person suburban Warshington DC Virginia*

    EDIT: I guess Pat Can't or won't see that there is a Jew or two in VA.

  15. hagajim

    I think Pat lost it a long time ago. He was always a despicable cretin – now he's just flat out throwin down weird shit…I mean this is a guy who said two weeks ago that we all ought to be smokin' weed.

  16. swordfis

    I have a hunch that Pat Robertson doesn't know much about Judaism. Now wasn't that polite?

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        Yah, that's sort of my take on the Xtards' Revelations fetish. Jeebus and his posse were basically the original reformed Jews — not even a separate religion, until a few centuries later. Makes you wonder who, exactly, he'd be likely to recruit for some Rapture action, because I'm pretty damned sure it's not Robertson and his fuckwad followers.

  17. JustPixelz

    The way Robertson explains it, ya gotta hand it to Satan: His plan is sheer genius in its simplicity.

  18. EtchySketchy

    So Satan hates Jerusalem, because it's evidence of God, and God hates Satan, cos you know he's Satan, and lots of Romanians hate the Jews, while Fundy Christians don't actually hate the Jews, they just act all condescending and shit.

    OK, got all that. Now who hates Pat Robinson?

    Oh yeah, everybody.

    1. Biff

      Sometimes, my hatred of Pat Robertson gets misdirected toward Pat Buchanan, and nobody ever knows the difference.

      1. FakaktaSouth

        Seriously, til I scrolled down all the way and saw the video still, I was reading this as Buchanan the whole time. But then I realized, ooooh, the OTHER white Pat.

  19. Blueb4sunrise

    I, for one, would feel a lot better about this if there were more links to the Jewish ladies'

  20. SayItWithWookies

    So anti-semitism is the work of the devil, but so is anti-Zionism, if I understand Mr. Robertson correctly? It's the privilege of the divinely tetched that they never have to make a lick o' fuckin' sense, apparently.

  21. Doktor StrangeZoom

    Sometimes it sucks to be an atheist, because I can't take any satisfaction from the notion that Pat Robertson has to look forward to an eternity of being reamed by Satan's spiky cock.

  22. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    My wanderin got my ass wondering
    where Christ is in all this crisis
    Hating Satan never knew what nice is
    Check the papers while I bet on Isis

  23. mavenmaven

    So, to summarize, who God likes is not the Jews but the Christians who like Jews, because the Jews themselves are not smart enough to be saved by Jesus (who was himself a Jew but doesn't count in this theory)?

  24. poorgradstudent

    And just the other day an evangelical friend of mine was explaining how he really does believe all the books of the Old Testament are really ultimately about Jesus (even Exodus!), especially the books of the prophets which really seem to just be describing political issues the Jews were facing way back in the Iron Age.

    I couldn't help but think (and sadly for once I wasn't drunk enough to say it aloud): damn that's cold, to not just plagiarize their work but tell them what the key themes are really about.

    1. Negropolis

      Well, the New Testament pretty much explicitly says as much. They cherry-pick Old Testament prophecies and tie them to Jesus, particularly Isaiah. I mean, the writers of the Gospels literally have Jesus pick out specific Old Testament prophecies and describe how he fulfills them. Christianity is basically Judaism that got tired of waiting for its messiah.

        1. Negropolis

          I don't know how wrong it is. It's no more wrong thatn Judaism co-opting old Sumerian creation tales, or Islam building itself on top of Judaism or Christianity. Most religions borrowed from others.

          1. poorgradstudent

            Yeah, but usually they don't "borrow" while simultaneously proclaiming that everything the other religion wrote in their sacred texts was really all about them, and then go about persecuting and marginalizing the other religion.

  25. DerrickWildcat

    There were many famous people in our nation's history that were Jewish. Douglas MacArthur, Douglas Henning, Stephen Douglas, Mike Douglas, Chip and Ernie Douglas…most of the Dougs I think.

  26. cheetojeebus

    Mean old dude should probably have a Tumms after eating that whole greasy bag of deep fried chipotle dusted rat dicks and that bucket of wasabi flavored puffed rat balls.

    1. DemmeFatale

      My daughter's birthday, Hitler's birthday, and Don Mattingly's birthday.
      DON MATTINGLY, PEOPLE!!!! Donny Baseball!!

      Poor girl. We move from NY to CA, and it's all: "heh-heh, 4/20, what a cool birthday!"

  27. miss_grundy

    What poopie Robertson doesn't understand is that Jesus was born, raised and died a Jew. His followers were Jews, who were the original Jews for Jesus and that Christianity thing didn't happen until about 100 years after Christ's death. And the Pharisees and Saducees thought the Messiah would be a warrior who would come down to earth and kick Roman Empire ass. But what do I know, huh?????

  28. Negropolis

    Shorter Pat Robertson: Anti-Semitism is of the devil…now, watch me make an anti-Semetic statement. Now, watch this drive. Also.

    When is Republican Jesus going to call his old ass home, already? Bless his stupid, little, depraved heart.

  29. Guppy

    And Netanyahu and the Israeli electorate would rather be in bed with these folks than deal with a little constructive criticism about settlements and such.

    A pox on both their houses.

    1. MosesInvests

      The Israeli electorate supports Bibi like the American electorate supported Chimpy. A pox on your house, too?

  30. Wile E. Quixote

    I'm superior, you're inferior.
    I'm the big attraction, you're the small.
    I'm the major one, you're the minor one,
    I can beat yer stoopid, that's not all.

    Anything Jew can do, I can do dumber.
    I can do anything dumber than Jew.
    No you can't.
    Yes I can.
    No you can't.
    Yes I can.
    No you can't.
    Yes I can, yes I can.

    Anything Jew can buy, I can buy cheaper.
    I can buy anything cheaper than Jew.
    Fifty cents.
    Forty cents.
    Thirty cents.
    Twenty cents.
    No you can't.
    Yes I can, yes I can.

    Any hole Jew can dig, I can dig deeper.
    I can dig anything deeper than Jews.
    Thirty feet.
    Forty feet.
    Fifty feet.
    Sixty feet.
    No you can't.
    Yes I can, yes I can.

    Years ago I worked with a lady who was a converted Catholic. I'm a used to be Catholic. She wore both a Crucifix necklace and a "fish" pin. I put a "Darwin" decal on my car. She told me that she thought that the "Darwin" decals were just people's way of trying to shove differing personal beliefs down Christian's throats. I asked if she thought it were possible that her multiple Christian symbols might be looked at as her trying to shove her personal beliefs down everyone else' throats. She was genuinely perplexed. To her it just was not the same thing at all.

  32. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    You know who else thought that “the poor Jews don’t understand that, it’s too cosmic for most of them to grasp, especially because they don’t believe Jesus is the Messiah.”

  33. DahBoner

    That stupid Jew called Jesus Christ should stop believing all that stupid Jewish law shit and just believe in Pat Robertson…

  34. Chet Kincaid

    So why is Satan playing along with the pre-determined narrative when every dipshit like Pat Robertson has already gotten the Spoiler Alert from God? Even a couple Jews like Stan Lee and Jack Kirby know that all this "Ragnarok" claptrap is for the comic books.

    1. ibwilliamsi

      Biel-ze-Bubba – That's what we named our dog! He was a tad more intelligent than you, I must say.

  35. WonkCynic

    The problem with the "stupid" jews is that the poor and middle class jews have been taught through years of holocaust propaganda that the elite jews somehow love them more than all of the other poor and middle class cannon fodder that they waste in their shitty wars with their shitty jew banker money. If the facade were to slip away, the middle class and poor jews would realize that they are perhaps only just a notch above the scumbag goyim in the "scheme" of things. Then they'd be just as apt to voice a little angst at their fancy jew banker overlords as well. But in the end nobody dodges the ovens; except the elite banker jews; their fancy silver spoon wine guzzling buddies; and a few select schills who make it happen for them. The kapos all end up with bullets in their heads or nooses around their necks. History gets written by the fancy jew banker victors, and then they start the cycle again. Kind of makes one believe that karma isn't really a bitch afterall.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Proof once again that there should be an IQ test, before people are given a keyboard and an internet connection.
