Pat Robertson once again compared Islam to Nazism while speaking on the 700 Club today, arguing that the U.S. should view Muslims as we viewed Nazis during World War II.
“Sure this Islam is a religion,” Robertson said — which is actually new for Robertson as he previously claimed that “Islam is not a religion” — “at the same time it is a system of world government.”
He said that the government “refuses to acknowledge the problem of Islam” even though “during the Second World War we didn’t have any problems saying that Hitler was bad, no problem at all saying the Nazis were monsters, no problem, we were fighting the Nazis and our job was to defeat the Nazis and everybody in America was mobilized to defeat the Nazis…. Now we’re fighting a war but we refuse to identify our enemy even though it is in plain sight.”
Later in the program, Robertson called Islam “an evil system that is bringing death and destruction throughout the globe.”
