Wayne Simmons endorses Pat Robertson's fatwa against democracy: "I absolutely would -- he should have been killed a long time ago... It doesn't matter to me who kills this guy." He then proceeds to say that Hugo Chavez is "no different" than Hitler or Mussolini. Apparently we need to undermine the government of a functioning democracy... why? Can you be a "terrorist dictator" when you were fairly elected and have 70-plus point favorability ratings and haven't started any wars? Pat Robertson being honest when he said he wanted to kill Chavez for the oil and because Chavez 'has destroyed the economy' - apparently petrol exports are all it takes to become the equivalent of a genocidal tyrannt.
FOX probably ought to be shutdown for a cooling off period for repeated and irresponsible incitements to violence, but if we did that I suppose we'd have to shutdown pretty much every major media outlet we have. The war party has been going on about the threat this guy is since he was elected, and they have yet to even fabricate sufficient reason to consider him an "enemy".
