If it’s interesting and remotely defensible — no matter how controversial — we’ll BRING IT ON here at Truth Jihad Radio!
First hour guest: Bruce Leichty, lawyer for both 9/11-truth-seeking family member Ellen Mariani AND recently-freed holocaust revisionist Ernst Zundel. Obviously this lawyer does not shy away from controversial clients!
Some real truthers, as well as the fake ones, will be attacking me for having Leichty on the show. “We need to distance ourselves from holocaust revisionism!” they will wail. “Leichty is screwing us over by representing Zundel as well as Mariani! It’s bad PR!”
These people, in my opinion, are allowing irrational emotional reactions to do their thinking for them. All clear and honest thinkers know that it was an outrage to imprison Zundel for seven years, in atrocious conditions, for the “crime” of posting unpopular opinions on the internet. All of us who post and read unpopular opinions on the internet–and everyone who has even minimal concern for free speech–should be outraged by what happened to Zundel, and should have the guts to stand up in public and say so. If you don’t, it is you, not Leichty or Zundel, who are contemptible.
By the way, my satirical article Hamas Rescinds Nakba-Denial Law was inspired by the Zundel story. My point, for those who missed it, was that if we had fair and balanced holocaust denial laws, almost the entire population of the US, Europe, and of course Israel would be in jail for denying the Nakba (the Palestinian holocaust).
Second hour guest: John Hankey, whose documentary The Assassination of JFK Jr. makes a strong case for murder and a circumstantial case that Bush Jr. did it. John’s recent article Is the Military Threatening to Kill Obama? argues that the President only surged into Afghanistan because the military is holding a gun to his head.
