Vidal: ‘Our Fascist Government Controls the Media’

• Views: 2,718

Gore Vidal brings the crazy again: US needs 100 years to recover from Bush.

IT will take the the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published today.

“The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn’t have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,” Mr Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.

The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States 100 years to repair the damage caused by Bush.

”We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government …which controls the media,” he said.

Mr Vidal also said presidential aspirant Barack Obama was ntelligent and that it would be a novelty to have an intelligent person in the White House.

Trenchant! (Hat tip: JammieWearingFool.)

Vidal also said that John McCain might be lying about being a prisoner of war. (This is an article by discredited partisan hack Greg Mitchell.)

Asked what he thinks of McCain, Vidal calls him a “disaster,” then tells Deborah Solomon, “Who started this rumor that he was a war hero? Where does that come from, aside from himself? About his suffering in the prison war camp?”

Solomon replies: “Everyone knows he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.” To which Vidal responds: “That’s what he tells us.”

Why would you doubt him? Solomon wonders. “He’s a graduate of Annapolis,” Vidal explains. “I know a lot of the Annapolis breed. Remember, I’m West Point, where I was born. My father went there.”

And by the way, Vidal is also on the “advisory board” of the lunatic left-wing hate group World Can’t Wait, along with a who’s who of radical leftists, terrorist supporters, and antisemites.

Advisory Board:

James Abourezk, former U.S. Senator, South Dakota
Rosemary Candelario, pro-choice activist
Warren Hern MD, Physician and pro-choice activist
Mark Leno, CA State Assembly
Mark Crispin Miller, professor & writer
Tomas Olmos, attorney
Boots Riley, hip hop performer
Lynne Stewart, attorney
Gore Vidal, writer
Sunsara Taylor, writer
Howard Zinn, historian
