Amazing Gov. Jesse Ventura Interview

Postby Duane » Wed Dec 02, 2009 7:01 pm

Gotta say: Opie and Anthony's "third mic" comedian Jim Norton has a big brass pair of nuts. And boy, were they swinging today.

The clip below is the last part of an hour long interview of the famous Governor/Reform candidate/conspiracy nut Jesse "The Body" Ventura on the Opie and Anthony Show.

Personally, I think Gov. Ventura has a few thoughtful, meaningful things to say about how we deal with other countries and the world at large, but mixed in with it are a lot of opinions that have very little to do with reality. And by the end, Jim Norton has had enough. The clip begins on the tail end of a discussion of how the 9-11 terrorists should be brought to justice. It devolves into a personal argument between Ventura and Jim Norton over definitions of patriotism and who is entitled to speak on behalf of our military. It very nearly ends in blows before Gov. Ventura storms out the door, trading insults with the comedian as he leaves.

You forget that Jessie says many good things as well. You should see Norton when he is on Fox's Red Eye. He turns into Bush's ass puppet.

James Bamford already proved that the flight training was in America. The NSA knew about it but didn't do a fucking thing.

Planning for 9/11 was done in Germany, Yemin, Paris France and Virginia. Afghanistan had nothing to do with it. Did we bomb Paris? Amazing the looks we would get if we defended that one.

Y'know. There are certain thread titles you just never expect to see in Rick's/Harlan's Forums.

This is one of them.

I tried to be clever, but nothing would come to me. I was listening to the interview live on XM, by the way, and I had to stop what I was doing and just listen to it.

As I said above, I agree with some of his views, but his refusal to even consider others' points of view, combined with his conspiracy minded world view, makes him infuriating to listen to. And as the interview clip shows in spades, there are people who will call him out on his views, and the consequences be damned.

Did you catch their interview with Paul Mooney? A barn burner.
