Huh? Pat Robertson Calls for Revolution Against Obama Because a Nurse Asked Too Many Questions
Pat Robertson is full of medical advice these days. Just yesterday, he advised a woman that if her healing prayers for her husband are not working, she might want to consider that the chronically ill man just likes being sick.
Then on today’s show, he ran a feature suggesting that the rise in electronic medical records would spell the end of patient care as we know it, all because the government keeps interfering in doctor’s profits.
“Government intervention into the healthcare system was supposed to improve patient care,” the report said. “Instead, many doctors say they feel more like clerks, stuck behind their computers instead of taking care of patients.”
The report also warned that as a result of the new government rules, many small-town doctors were simply closing their doors.
Yet, while the CBN report focused primarily on healthcare woes and the pinch on small-town medicine, Robertson somehow took the issue in a whole new direction. While commenting on the piece, he suddenly remembered a doctor visit where a nurse asked him a barrage of questions about what medications he was taking, all while logging it onto a computer.
Robertson obviously is not the kind of man who likes to be bothered with such detailed questions or technology, because that incident with the nurse made him so angry that he demanded it was time for a revolution against Obama and his computer-based socialism.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we need a revolution to stop these so-called progressives from destroying this country anymore, but they are getting pretty close to the tipping point, it is not a pleasant scenario,” he said. “I didn’t vote for him, maybe you didn’t vote for him, but the American people voted him into office twice and this is the result, we reap what we sow.”
By the way, this is not the first time Robertson has called for an uprising of the religious right. Just this month, he led his 700 Club viewers in an impassioned prayer for God to send his angels to impeach Obama and remove him from office.
