Paul Harvey openly promoted the attitudes and actions such as endorsement of genocide and racism on his June 23rd edition of his “news and comment.” The self described “Christian” suggested that we return to beliefs of ages past when we killed Native Americans with smallpox, used slavery for econimic profit, and use of nuclear weapons.
In his own sick words:
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… We sent men with rifles into Afghanistan and Iraq and kept our best weapons in their silos
We didn't come this far because we're made of sugar candy. Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and across this continent by giving smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans. 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. So it goes with most great nation-states, which--feeling guilty about their savage pasts--eventually civilize themselves out of business and wind up invaded and ultimately dominated by the lean, hungry up-and-coming who are not made of sugar candy.
Disney recently signed a 100 million 10 year contract with the 86 year old Harvey.
Ask Disney why it finds Paul Harvey's nostalgia for slavery and genocide and his calls for nuclear war acceptable, but deemed Michael Moore's film unacceptable.
