Texas: Tea Party gubernatorial candidate has “not taken a position” on 9/11 conspiracy theories
Even nutbag Glenn Beck was having difficulty getting a sane answer out of Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina, whose candidacy is catching on with the know-nothing on the far-right. The blowhard radio host received a lot of emails asking for Medina to be a guest, and so on she came, ready to take on the big issues of the day.
Let’s just say if she’s an example of where the GOP is heading, we need a new definition of the word “mainstream.” Beck asked her if she believes in one of the conspiracy theories about 9/11 — that the U.S. government was involved on the attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon. And she said:
“I don’t have all of the evidence there Glenn so I’m not in a place, I have not been out publicly questioning that,” Medina said. “I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard, there are some very good arguments and I think the American people have not seen all the evidence there, so I have not taken a position on that.”
When Beck asked whether any of her advisers believed the government was involved, Medina said none of them did to her knowledge. He then asked whether she would disavow any advisers who did.
“That’s a federal issue,” Medina said. [WTF?] “We’re very focused on issues in Texas on Texas state government. I’m certainly not into mind control or thought-policing people. We’ve got a very diverse team in this state and it’s because Texans are standing shoulder to shoulder to support and defend the Constitution. I frankly don’t have time to go through and do psychological testing on people and know every thought or detail that they have. I don’t see us having a team of radical individuals if you will.”
After the interview, Beck, who holds sway with many Republican primary voters, said, “I think I can write her off the list.”
