Robertson: ‘Orgy’ Of French Revolution (And Nazis) Caused By Humanism

Yesterday I talked about rape culture, and the day before I talked about Miley Cyrus. Overall, my big blog restart has been a bit…bleak. Not that I’m equating talking about Miley Cyrus with talking about rape culture or anything, but neither topic really makes your day, right? So, in an effort to bring some levity to this blog, here’s Pat Robertson being an idiot!

You know the liberals, the so called socialists, the progressives, they’ve moved away from God and when you move away from God then you say, ‘we’re humanists.’ Then as a result of humanity and rejecting God, you have the orgy of the French Revolution, you have the guillotine cutting off the heads of thousands of people, you have the same thing going on now in Europe, you had it under the Nazis. Why can’t we come back to the fact that God loves people?

Yep, in the mind of Pat Robertson and his credulous supporters the Nazis came about…as a result of a liberal, humanist attitude. Which could be true, I suppose: the growth of liberalism in Germany in the 1920s angered those on the right wing, and could be said to be a contributor to the extremism of the Nazi party as a reaction to this culture. But isn’t reacting to the growth of liberalism what Pat Robertson is doing? Ha! Irony! You get a lot of that with wingnuts; it’s almost as if they’re not very self-aware.

Oh, in case you’re wondering, this rant was a reaction to Belgium’s proposal to extend its euthanasia laws to include children and those with Alzheimer’s or other brain disorders. Personally, I do not see how this can be equated with chopping the heads off members of the aristocracy and systematically murdering millions of Jews, but what do I know, right?
