Television pastor Pat Robertson is well-known for making controversial statements and he kept his reputation intact on Monday morning’s broadcast of The 700 Club. That's when the TV preacher blamed President Barack Obama for being the mastermind behind Occupy Wall Street protests (video below).
“Well, the match to the kindling is being provided by our noble president,” Robertson said. “He is inciting people to revolt.” Robertson failed to cite any specific evidence linking Obama to being behind the demonstrations.
Last week, Roberston attacked the Occupy Wall Street protesters “clowns” and “nuts.” However, Robertson was supportive in the past of of Tea Party protesters who carried racist signs, wore guns and yelled angrily against health care during town hall meetings.
