An expert on television speaks
Former Lt. Colonel and current asshole Ralph Peters is a regular on Fox News, where he is given a platform to broadcast his insane neocon fatwahs.
You might remember Colonel Peters. He's the idiot who insisted in 2006 that reports of Iraq's descent into sectarian violence and civil war were exaggerated fantasies invented by journalists who hate freedom.
And ten years later, he's still a respected television pundit who is leading the charge against Vladimir Putin—or should we say "Hitler"?
During a deeply disturbing meltdown on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Peters shrieked at Tucker: "Vladimir Putin is comparable [to Hitler]. He hates America. He wants to hurt us. And I'm sorry, all this suddenly 'Vladimir Putin is a good guy, Russia's OK' — not it's not. Russia is evil. Russia is our enemy!"
Another delightful highlight: Peters called Carlson a Nazi-lover for not wanting to carpet-bomb Moscow:
"You just compared me to a Nazi apologist because I asked a simple question," Carlson said. "Which is: Why does it contravene American interests to make common cause with a group that's trying to kill ISIS?"
"Because he invaded his neighbors, broken the long peace in Europe," Peters said of Putin. "He assassinates dissidents and journalists. He bombs women and children on purpose in Syria. He is as bad as Hitler."
Someone needs a hug.
