Recently, a devastating series of earthquakes rocked the small Third World country of Haiti. The country now lies in ruins because of this horrible event which has caused a still unknown number of deaths. The reason? According to TV's resident nut job Pat Robertson, it's because the Haitians entered into a pact with the devil and now he's asking them to pay up.
But that's not the only time Pat has offered us some wizard-like insight. Here's a highlight of some of Pat Robertson's most shining moments, starting with the most recent.What are the craziest things Pat Robertson has said? There are plenty to choose from but these are the highlights (lowlights, depending on your point of view), so sit back, relax and enjoy the crazies things Pat Robertson has ever said.
Pat Robertson on the Earthquake in Haiti
The news anchor may refer to Pat Robertson's "blessing in disguise" (0:19) explanation for the Haiti earthquake as a "pretty optimistic attitude" (0:28), but we sure as hell don't. (See what we did there? hell reference? No? Okay, moving on... )
0:48 - Robertson delivered a damning accusation to the Haitian people by claiming that they "swore a pact with the devil" during the French Revolution. It's a true story. He was there.This man literally believes in demons AND many people STILL ask him for advice on a regular basis... let's keep going.
Pat Robertson on Karate + Chuck Norris
This Pat Robertson clip gets a little tricky because he's almost likable when he starts talking about Chuck Norris. References to "ghetto kids" (0:40) dapple the conversation but hey, the guy's got to start slow. He's like an orchestra of crazy, he needs to "build."
In the long run, a Pat Robertson show is a Pat Robertson show and the crazy s**t has gotta come out somehow. And boy does it come at...
1:00 - when Pat starts talking about martial artists inhaling "demon spirits." He then wards off the audience from having anything to do with that type of stuff.This is one of the craziest things he's ever said, but with it he's accomplished something awesome and therefore finally contributed something positive to this world: giving us the idea that Chuck Norris' awesomeness is powered by DEMONS. Freaking DEMONS! hell yeah! (See what we did there? hell reference? No? Moving on... )
Pat Robertson Predicts Terrorists
Every year Pat Robertson talks to God and God tells him what to expect for the upcoming year.
In 2007, God told him about some terrorist attacks that would happen at the end of the year killing possibly millions of people. MILLIONS. Move over Roland Emmerich, Robertson's got opinions to shoot at America with a THOUGHT-CANNON!
Mr. Robertson padded his prediction by adding that maybe if the people prayed hard enough, the attacks won't happen. I guess in 2007 people prayed hard enough. Not so much in 2001. Clever, Mr. Robertson, real clever.Watch from 00:20 on.
The Dangers of Yoga
0:48 Connecting yoga to Hinduism and pantheism, Mr. Robertson is convinced that "it gets really spooky". In actuality, the only thing spooky about yoga is if we ever saw Mr. Robertson in a downward dog position. *Shudder*
