Somebody pull the plug, STAT!

Well, folks, I’ve long suspected it, but today I received confirmation: Pat Robertson has officially lost his fucking mind.
Before I label myself as a watcher of The 700 Club, please allow me to explain. I watch The Today Show most mornings, and especially on the mornings when I have to pay bills (oh, end-of-the-month payday, you fickle, fickle bitch). Sometimes I’ll be busy doing something else and will not change the channel in time to miss The 700 Club‘s ominous opening theme. Today was such a morning. I was caught up in the process of creating a new online account for one of my creditors when I heard the gravelly voice of
top hatemonger Pat Robertson. I decided to tune him out, trying like hell to remember the new password I had just created. And then…I heard it. The most-fucking-ridiculous thing I have EVER heard anyone say in my entire life. Ever.
Segueing from a piece on the tragedy that is human sex trafficking in order to introduce a one-on-one interview with
The Second Coming of Christ Tim Tebow, Pat Robertson makes the following statement:
“And, you know, people call it a ‘victimless’ crime because the girls want to do it. But, those children don’t want to be sex slaves. It’s disgraceful.”
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-whaaaaaaaaaa????
Friends, I would like for you to tell me precisely who calls the crime of human sex trafficking “victimless.”
Who believes that these kidnap victims would rather be whores, bought and sold on the whims of pimps, than, say, happy-go-lucky teenage girls or college students or professionals?
Who believes that these girls willingly go along with it because it’s their preferred choice?
Who believes that these girls haven’t been brainwashed or threatened or beaten into submission?
Who believes that, given the option between returning to their families or spreading their legs for a dollar, these girls prefer the latter?
Come on, Pat Robertson! The only rational adult who would call human sex trafficking “victimless” isn’t really all that rational. What you have described, Pat, is a sociopath.
Fuck you, Pat Robertson. Fuck you and your fucking stupid generalizations and divisive commentary.
So, let me kick this out to you guys, my readers. Is Pat Robertson a fucking liar who just likes to make others outside of his little realm appear to be barbarians? Or has ol’ A.Hab. just completely reamed a defenseless old man who was trying to make a nice point? Have you ever heard anyone call human sex trafficking a victimless crime?
