Fundamentalist Threats

Remember the uproar than ensued when Pat Robertson not-so-subtlely called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez…?

So I was watching one of my favorite televangelist podcasts last night: Jack Van Impe Presents. (You can watch it, too. The audio can be downloaded here and video can be downloaded here.)

That’s when I heard Jack make this comment (At the 5:53 mark of the video):

… that’s the corruption that goes on in the United Nations. And there have been 50 wars in the last 15 years. They’ve done practically nothing about it. They sit there in New York and waste the time and the money of America’s taxpayers, and then a guy like [Hugo] Chavez and [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad from Iran come in and they blast America and blast our president and they’re protected by our secret service and they’re fed luscious meals. They should have taken them to Taco Bell and given them a little E. coli lettuce.

I’m not a fan of Chavez or Ahmadinejad either… but did Jack just suggest that they be poisoned?

Maybe I should also be offended by the Speedy-Gonzales-accent he attempted to use when saying the word “Taco”…

This aired days ago. Why hasn’t anyone said anything about this? He’s not as popular as Pat Robertson, of course, but Jack’s show still has a wide audience.
