Pat Robertson caught during Larry King break: "That guy was a homo"
The URL below offers a video clip of Pat Robertson speaking his mind during a Larry King Live commercial break, not aware that the cameras were still rolling. All comments below are from the post by Rev. Mykeru:

http://www.mykeru.com/weekly/2005_0501_0507.html#watch_...

Watch This Video Clip

I don't even have to comment on this video clip, in Windows Media Video format courtesy of the Randi Rhodes show, of Pat Robertson critiquing his own performance and receiving helpful advice during a break on the Larry King show. It explains so much about how the religious right, the right wing, and their bullshit, prepackaged media enablers works, where questions exist only as the prelude to an unrelated monologue and "balance" means acceptable bias.

Of course, folks like Pat are just doing God's work, none of this is politically motivated, oh no sir. Except that you can get bounced from your wingnut fundy church for not supporting George W. Bush, the Iraq war, the anti-gay agenda and, of course, Gunship Jesus.

Incidentally, you will notice that the same wingnuts overly concerned about "balance" (read: elimination of views opposite theirs) aren't exactly lining up to reestablish the Fairness Doctrine.

1. Warning: it opens with Robertson's speech at the RNC.
A helpful tip for those with less-than iron digestive systems.

This man is the anti-Christ.

2. His big concern near the end of the clip seemed to be...
Edited on Sat May-07-05 11:31 AM by Bush_Eats_Beef
..."Am I looking good? They're just trying to make me look bad..."

Whatta dork.

3. just amazing...
watched the clip and am wondering about the logistics of this particular clip reaching outside the Larry King loop. Someone must have released it knowing it was noteworthy. Apparently, we are not the only ones who are outraged at this crap. Makes me wonder what we would see if more clips like this were released. Maybe then some would stop drinking the KoolAid. I don't know.

6. Well, Robertson and his "handler" were trashing the segment producer...
...so maybe the segment producer turned his head the other way while the tapes of the raw feed got e-mailed around to a few folks.

It's just a nice, compact, self-explanatory clip to have around the next time someone starts putting Robertson up on a pedestal.

I'll bet something like that did happen, as that's the only way stuff like this would 'get out'.

The speech clip at the beginning is very short, so don't get frustrated - the rest of it is very worthwhile.

9. The opening clip is what the caller is referring to, I think.
Robertson was talking about the "carriers of the plague" or something -- clearly an attack on gays for AIDS.

23. No kidding.
Wow, a real live homo! On the TV! Do they let those people talk on TV?

I'm just speechless.

And that he would be suprised that they would let one of the classes impacted by his inflammatory rhetoric ask a question - "they were just setting us up" Appalling.

45. That, and their preoccupation with sex
The sex demons surround and invade every fiber of their bodies.

It is mind boggling to me how the flock can follow a mortal man who cannot/will not walk the talk of Jesus Christ, the one he calls his Savorier. Just because he has managed to become a media sensation (for lack of a better word) does not mean he and his ilk are not wolves in sheep clothing.

Name-calling, disrespecting and de-valuing God's children is not Christian. No one can justify this by claiming it is a means to a more moral society. They will never achieve their moral society by being immoral. It just doesn't work that way. You have to walk the talk despite the pre-conceived mal-doings of others.

Whether one believes in God or not, in the eyes of God: we are all God's children. It is that simple.

This type of Christian will be knocked off their high horse one day soon. It's too bad, though, that they are hurting so many people and our country along the way.

12. I'm not sure...I posted all of the supporting text from the Web Site
But I noticed that if you hover your mouse over the highlighted "this clip now" text on Mykeru's site, the video is ACTUALLY on Randi Rhodes' server, and the clip was placed there on May 2nd:

19. It would be interesting to find out exactly who that person is.
It was amazing to see them discussing such things very much out in the open on the set like that. Who is Robertson talking to when he first uses the cryptic "homo" expression? It almost looks as if he's looking Larry King's way.

30. I didn't even know it was hers until I checked the URL...
I started on Digby's blog, Hullabaloo:

http://digbysblog.blogspot.com /

...and saw this entry:

Homos Everywhere!

Check out the video on Rev-Mykeru showing what Robertson says when he doesn't realize he's being taped.

Pat Robertson thinks he can tell if someone is gay by the sound of his voice on the phone. He must get awfully nervous when Gary Bauer and James Dobson call.

Robertson wallows in more of his own filth.
Okay, I said no political posts today, but The Liberal Avenger is making me! Rather, he pointed me to this post from Reverend Mykeru. Go see what Pat Robertson says when he doesn't realize the camera is still on.

"It's the homos! The homos, I tells ya! They're out to get me!"

This guy is obsessed.

What they really think

Mykeru.com May 1 to 7, 2005

Mykeru has a link to a videoclip of Pat Robertson on Larry King Live where they caught Robertson talking to one of his aides during a commercial break when they didn't think they were being taped.

Says Mykeru:

It explains so much about how the religious right, the right wing, and their bullshit, prepackaged media enablers works, where questions exist only as the prelude to an unrelated monologue and "balance" means acceptable bias.

Of course, folks like Pat are just doing God's work, none of this is politically motivated, oh no sir.

The clip is definitely worth checking out.

BUT...all roads lead to Randi Rhodes.

:evilgrin:

SO...my suggestion to anyone wanting to know more is to call Randi next week, because I've looked all over her Web Site and can't find any detail. I find her SITE DIRECTORY...with the clip sitting in it, which I've shared with all of you...but Randi's got the clip, and only she knows where it came from.

32. WAIT a minute. It looks as if Robertson is sitting not on the
Larry King set, but somewhere else. Look at the different set backgrounds. Maybe he's in his "Focus on the Family" studio. That would explain a lot.

27. What is he saying near the end, just before he adjusts his
earpiece? It's not "translated," but is sounds as if he's saying "They'll be out of here by noon," or something.

The conversation at that point is very muffled.

37. That's The WHOLE BushCo Tactic: ANSWER ANOTHER QUESTION
Doesn't matter what question is asked, answer the question you WANT asked. Like when they asked Bush "do you take responsibility for..." one of the various Iraq messes he's say "I take responsibility for removing a dictator!"

My question is: why the hell does the press let them get away with it?

How I loathe these people. Loathe. Is there a word that quadruples "loathe?" That one.

Can you believe what a simpering, self-indulgent fool he is? Licking his lips, listening to the coaching, babbling on about "homos." It's all about him.

46. I was wondering that too....perhaps Robertson commissioned Harris to
conduct either polls or focus groups for him and his organization. The whole segment was interesting, including the paranoid mumblings of 'being set up' by the cnn producers. Thanks to the OP, btw for the link to this video.

47. Is Pat Robertson about to come out of the closet?
Or does he have to be outed? He and Sick Rick Santorum should be outed together.

The most homophobic Republicans are secretly the most self-hating insecure homosexuals trying desperately to hide it. That's why they are so obsessed with it.

No Gays were born to Gay Couples...thats a known thingy.

and Math speaks for itself....there must be at least 5 million Gays who voted PUB last year...... and they have to stay in the closet too.
No wonder they are fucked up, they are a miserable people....regulated to HIDING and sneaking....How normal is THAT?
