Thomas H. Naylor Does Yet Another Interview With A Holocaust Denying "News" Service
Fresh from his betrayal of a longtime friend, Thomas H. Naylor has done another of his infamous interviews with Iran's state run English news service, Press TV. Press TV is the Iranian propaganda outlet for the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad regime. It promotes Holocaust denial, 9/11 Truther conspiracy junk theories and what Iran's top military leader, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi's said in a recent speech that “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause and that is the full annihilation of Israel.” (May 20, 2012)
Press TV uses a stable of anti-American and anti-Semitic "experts", of whom Naylor is one, who gladly do dog and pony interviews in support of the regime's meme-of-the-day. Many, like Naylor, claim to be for peace but see nothing odd in serving as mouthpieces for a genocidal regime, one of whose wars, initiated by Iran, was one of the longest in the 20th century and led to more than a million dead. Yesterday's meme was that there are only "minor differences" between President Obama and Governor Romney, and that's a point of view that no rational person buys into. In Naylor's view, warped by his long involvement with the fringers in the Second Vermont Republic and the racist apparatchiks in the League of the South:
“There are minor differences between Obama and Romney on some of the social issues. On the serious issues of foreign policy, on control which Wall Street and Corporate America yields over the U.S. government and over the U.S. Congress there is no difference whatsoever...”
“Romney is no different in terms of foreign policy, they both seem to be equally hostile towards Iran..."

Either Naylor's given up reading newspapers, as he has the Internet, or he's willfully misstating the factual situation regarding the candidates substantial differences on Israel, taxes, healthcare, foreign policy stances and diplomacy, immigration, Medicare and Medicaid, redistribution of wealth to the 1%, and, yes, Iran. And then there are the civil rights issues like gay marriage and the more than 1,000 tax disparities between gay and straight couples that Naylor so cavalierly dismisses as "minor" since he's got his; Obama supports marriage equality, Romney will not - that's not a minor difference if you're the one being discriminated against.
