Nuke Saudi Arabia

I've been meaning to post this since June 23rd...Mr. Harvey - who is famous for his corny stories and homespun manner -has always slanted his broadcasts toward the conservative end of the political spectrum. He is a nationalist and a militarist. And, sometimes, on rare occasions, he reveals an even darker philosophy. Here's one of his rants:

We called Saudi Arabians our partners against terrorism. And we sent men with rifles into Afghanistan and Iraq. And, we kept our best weapons in our silos. Even now, we're standing there dying, daring to do nothing decisive because we've declared ourselves to be better than our terrorist enemies -- more moral, more civilized. But, we didn't come this far because we're made of sugar candy.

Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and into this continent by giving smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans. Yes, that was biological warfare. And, we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever. And, we grew prosperous. And, yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves....

This is man is unhinged. Do you think you could call this approach one of spreading an ideology of hope and compassion?

Agitprop says : Disney/ABC Radio's geriatric news commentator Paul Harvey offered up some strange words for his Friday commentary ... Sugar candy? He also laments the fact that we haven't nuked the Middle East like we did to Hiroshima.

It's time to ship this asshat off to the funny farm. Contact Disney and let them know what you think. Full transcript of Harvey's comments available here.
