Oliver North Claims A Democratic Congress Would Bring About A Nuclear Catastrophe. Is There Any Smear Against Americans Too Sleazy For FOX News?
Reported by Ellen - September 1, 2006 -
Once again, the “We Like America” network allowed an employee to smear the majority of Americans who support Democrats. Last night (8/31/06), FOX News contributor Oliver North, a convicted liar and arms-seller to the Iranians (who got off on a technicality), did his best to scare Hannity & Colmes viewers out of voting for Democrats.
Sean Hannity cued North to start the smear by asking how the Iranian nuclear situation might factor into the upcoming election given that Republicans are in danger of losing control of Congress.
North readily answered, "If we elect a Congress in this election on November 7 that is committed to being anti-war, get out now, withdraw America, then we’re in serious, serious trouble. This could be catastrophic. That’s exactly what happened in 1974, when the Congress re-elected decided to get out of Viet Nam. But in this case, it won’t be boat people, it will be nuclear weapons in the hands of fanatics.”
