Waterboarding is Torture: Mancow
Conservative radio host, Erich “Mancow” Muller, had himself waterboarded during his Friday morning broadcast. He gives in after four seconds and concedes, reluctantly, that this is undeniably torture. Is Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity next?
Chicago right-wing radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller said that Howard Dean was
“evil” and “should be kicked out of America.”
He decided to try and prove that waterboarding was no big deal – that it’s just
“water splashed on your face.”
Sean Hannity promised to be waterboarded for charity, but has since broken the promise. Mancow Muller found a trained Marine sergeant, arranged for a paramedic to be on hand, and got waterboarded.
Average waterboarding victims last 14 seconds. Mancow thought he could last 30 or even 60 seconds.
Mancow lasted about four seconds and 3 quarts of water.
“It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that’s no joke,” Mancow told listeners. “It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back…It was instantaneous…and I don’t want to say this: absolutely torture.”
“Absolutely. I mean that’s drowning,” he added later. “It is the feeling of drowning.”
“If I knew it was gonna be this bad, I would not have done it,” he said.
Ok so its torture. But why shouldn’t it be used on these people suspected of killing others? I’m talking terrorists here-those guys inflict pain on people so they deserve it. I really don’t understand what the big deal is.
The US always prided itself that we abided by the International Law against torturing. And that we were better than “them.”
Now go walk your dog. 🙂
