Editor's Note:    You may follow or contribute to the comment section of my podcast.  Before proceeding, feel free to sample the one for today.    You may wonder why I allowed this comment to be posted.  For the record,  I don’t usually censor posts unless they are obscene or abusive.   The reason I moderate the comment section at all is that if I don’t,  I get hammered by internet spammers, usually Chinese hackers selling bootleg stuff… sometimes by the hundreds… a pain,  but that’s the way it is. 

 In this case,   I put this one up to illustrate what I’ve been telling you about propaganda techniques.   The gay lobby uses the “we are victims and therefore virtuous”  as their main weapon.   If you disagree with them, they label you a hater.  This is the template example.   I will take it apart line by line.

 Again, Jans hatred of the Mormon faith becomes apparent.

 No such hatred exists.   I have never criticized Mormonism.   Not once.  

 Since Jans first interview with Mitt where Jan attacked and intentionally insulted Mitts church and faith, he has been on a crusade to do everything possible to viciously belittle and deride Mitt and by association his church.

 This is also false.   Nowhere in the interview did I attack Mitt’s church or faith.   In fact during the interview I told Mitt that I agreed with the church.  This is a lie.   And since Mitt’s position on abortion was in disagreement with the official church doctrine,  he is the one which brought  insult to his church.

  Mitt being aware of this hatred of his church by so called Christians was overly sensitive and on guard for this venom. Jan basically told Romney he was a liar and a bad Mormon with the sole intent of belittling him on the air.

 You missed the part when I said I’d interviewed him before and this time was expecting a great interview with a committed Conservative pro-lifer.   Nobody was more shocked than I that Mitt lied about his church. 

 I think Jans hatred is very obvious to any frequent listener especially when you hear the softies given other candidates that profess to be real christens

 So far,  none of the other candidates have been nearly hysterically defensive or lied to me,  or gone on national TV and lied about me.  When and if that happens,  expect me to become a little "intense".

  I suspect every candidate Jan has interviewed has told an untruth (or several) and Jan will correct them politely and move on. Every Christian denomination could be called a cult by someone that has not grown up in the faith.

 If they have, they are better at it than Mitt.    And not once have I ever called Mormonism a “cult”.    This is another lie…a propaganda tactic which again asserts victim status trying to evoke unearned sympathy while attempting to put the other person on the defensive.

 Jans first interview blowing up was no accident, thats the way Jan intended it to go.

 That’s a lie.   Even if it were true,  Mitt didn’t have to co-operate by lying about his church,  accusing me of attacking his church even though I was in agreement with it, and later on national TV lying about hidden cameras.    I even tried to smooth over the interview by offering him another chance,  thinking that the possibility of a misunderstanding existed.  He rebuffed every attempt.   I think its important to note that in my entire career on the radio as a talk show host,  not once has this happened before or since.   It’s also noteworthy that even the people running Mitt's campaign during that election cycle call Romney a fraud.

 And also for the record,  after the Romney interview,  most of the supporting emails and phone calls came from Utah from Mormons who said,  “It’s about time somebody blew the whistle on that guy”.
