America’s Most Dangerous Politician sure seems to be shaking things up in Washington. Now, Governor Gary Johnson needs your help.
Johnson was interviewed on the Sean Hannity Show after the 2012 South Carolina Presidential debate, and the ending got me a little heated. Here’s the link to the video. When the three of you who read this post are done with it, please call the contact information at the bottom of this article. Johnson needs our help.
Now that you’ve watched the video (did you catch the Faux ending?), read how CNN is trying to ignore Gary Johnson and his pro-liberty viewpoints by excluding him from an upcoming Presidential debate:
“CNN, WMUR, and the New Hampshire Union Leader will host a presidential debate on Monday, June 13th in Manchester. Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, and Ron Paul will participate. In addition, unannounced candidates Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum will also take part.
Our campaign office, however, had not received an invitation, so we called this week, thinking we might have misplaced it or simply overlooked it. To our shock, at about 6:30 this morning, we learned that Governor Johnson was not invited, he was not going to be invited, and he would not be allowed to participate.”
I thought the Hannity show interview was outrageous, and now this?? This is incredible…
Fox News and CNN must be long lost brothers. They seem to have the same mindset…twist, confuse, skew, and lie about facts. When someone steps in and makes a legitimate argument, just ignore them!
Sean Hannity is a brilliant Faux News anchor. Look at how he tried to get a cheap shot against Gary Johnson at the end of the interview following the South Carolina presidential debate: “I don’t think I can ever interview you, we sort of don’t get into this debate.”
I jumped out of my chair after seeing that interview. That was May 5th. You can see Hannity’s May 27th interview here. Apparently Hannity CAN interview Johnson. He must have been confused when he said otherwise.
Hannity disagrees with Gary Johnson’s common sense stance on marijuana and refuses to debate the issue, preferring instead to resort to emotional rhetoric. As reported by The Baltimore Sun:
Hannity disagreed, and later referred to Johnson’s views on this issue as “repugnant” and a “moral destruction” to the “human soul.”
He said he didn’t want the state to become “a pusher” and create “a bunch of junkies.”
Unfortunately for the Faux anchor, the facts and science just don’t support his emotional appeal. That crap worked back in the 70’s when Nixon ignored the scientific advice he was given by the Shafer Commission. Today, United States Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders, the California NAACP, and numerous law enforcement officials support reforming marijuana laws.
Cheap shots are cheap shots, whether it’s Nixon’s ignoring scientific evidence, or Hannity refusing to allow debate. Fox News took a shot at Gary Johnson’s marijuana position on May 5th after the first Presidential Debate. Now, CNN is having a go at his liberty message.
Please help propagate the message of liberty. Do not allow CNN to silence opposing viewpoints. Contact CNN and voice your respectful outrage at this selective choice of “mainstream safe candidates” by a media outlet. Fair and Balanced is becoming an oxymoron, and one that applies to more than just Faux News.
