It’s kook vs. kook, as right wing radio host Michael Reagan is caught on tape saying that 9/11 conspiracy theorist Mark Dice should be shot.
Nick Langewis at The Raw Story reports that the comments were made June 10th during the airing of Reagan’s Radio AmericaL
Reagan called Dice and others in the “9/11 Truth” movement “traitors” after learning that they were sending letters, declassified documents and DVDs to troops in Iraq that they say point to government involvement in the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.
A fellow 9/11 truther writes that he called Bill Handel’s radio program on Monday morning asking they cover the story of Reagan’s threats. Late in the 8am hour, Handel said that “his friend” Reagan was being investigated by the FBI for the comments, and aired the clips… interjecting laughs and commentary.
In all fairness, he’s not suggesting that he’d personally shoot him and other “truthers” – he’s calling on a firing squad to do that. But he does say he’ll buy the bullets. And he said this on national radio.
You’d think the adopted son of President Ronald Reagan, who was shot by another kook inspired by watching Taxi Driver, would think twice about making these sorts of comments.
Here’s my conspiracy theory: both sides are just in it all for the publicity.
Monday night, Michael Reagan’s special guest was noneother than Mark Dice himself. At the top of the show, Reagan apologized, and then introduced Dice who immediately read him the riot act. Reagan wanted to quickly move onto the issue of the DVDs, and the root cause of why he was so upset. You can listen to the first half of the interview here. I couldn’t listen more than five minutes to the idiocy from either guy – if you have the time and interest, let me know if I missed anything worthwhile.
