American Fascists: The Radical Christian Right

Program #HEDC002. Recorded in Boulder, CO on January 22, 2007.

Over the last several decades there has been a growth in fascist ayatollahs and mullahs in the United States. Pat Robertson called for the U.S. to take out Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. He's a “terrific danger” whose country, says Reverend Pat, is “a launching pad for communist infiltration and Islamic extremism.” Imagine that. Robertson suffered no opprobrium or penalty. And he still hosts his 700 Club TV show. So it's cool to advocate the assassination of an elected head of state. But Pat's small potatoes compared to the grand vision of televangelist John Hagee who says, "The United States must join Israel in a pre-emptive military strike against Iran to fulfill God's plan for both Israel and the West a biblically prophesized end-time confrontation with Iran, which will lead to the Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ.”
