Add another entry to the long list of controversial statements made by television preacher Pat Robertson.

On Monday morning’s broadcast of The 700 Club, Robertson blamed President Barack Obama for being the mastermind behind Occupy Wall Street.

“Well the match to the kindling is being provided by our noble president,” the televangelist said. “He is inciting people to revolt.” Robertson failed to cite any specific evidence linking Obama to being behind the demonstrations.

Last week, Roberston called the protesters “clowns” and “nuts.” With those statements, it’s unlikely that Robertson will be speaking at any of the Occupy sites.
