After mangling Dietrich Bonhoeffer's famous "not to speak is to speak" quote and falsely attributing it to Martin Niemöller, Hagee informed his viewing audience that "God will not hold us harmless" and so they have an obligation to vote.
"I'm going to vote for the candidate that's going to make the U.S. military great again," he said. "I'm going to vote for the party that is going to solve the immigration problem, not the one that has created the immigration problem. I'm going to support the party that brings jobs back from China ... I'm not going to vote for the party that has betrayed Israel for the past seven years."
"If you can read a newspaper, you know who I'm talking about," Hagee said. "No candidate is perfect, but I want you to go vote and may God give us a leader who has the courage to put America first and stand up for we the people."
You know I have been watching these televangelists for years, ever since the glory days of Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Swaggert, and Jim and Tammy Bakker.
And I have to say that their level of hypocrisy has never failed to take my breath away.

But damn they are really outdoing themselves this time around.
They refused to accept John McCain back in 2008 until he saddled himself with Caribou Barbie, but they are completely willing to accept this twice divorced, biblically ignorant, almighty dollar worshiper without even breaking a sweat.
You know, it's almost like they were completely full of shit all along.
