Brian Moore on Michael Badnarik’s radio show

CONSERVATIVE RADIO MAKE UP MAJORITY OF INTERVIEW INVITATIONS FOR SOCIALIST

Progressive Talk Shows Fear Hurting Democrats, Shy Away From Minor Party Leftists

Spring Hill, Florida, Friday, April 18, 2008: Brian Moore, Socialist Party USA presidential nominee, was interviewed Thursday morning on conservative nationwide internet radio’s WTPRN.com, “We The People Radio Network—- Restoring Our Constitutional Republic.” The station, based in Austin, Texas, and available on the net and telephones nationwide, advertises that it “supports the Ron Paul Revolution.” Michael Badnarik, the Libertarian candidate for President in 2004, and congress in 2006, is the host of a daily “Lighting The Fires of Liberty” program. Moore’s interview can be found on the following link, then click M3U, and go to the 2nd hour (2nd set of 59 minutes).

The Socialist candidate expressed concern after his April 17th, Thursday morning radio interview with Badnarik that “all he seems to get invited to are mostly invitations from conservative radio stations or internet stations with conservative candidates to debate.” Moore feels Progressive Talk Radio and TV are intimidated by Democratic Party fear of “spoiler” minor party candidates “who don’t have a chance to win” and could “take votes from the Democratic party candidate!”

Moore pointed out that on the same Thursday morning, progressive talk show host Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now” nationwide program interviewed Independent Presidential candidate Ralph Nader’s Vice-Presidential candidate, Matt Gonzalez. Moore said one of Goodman’s repeated questions in the interview was whether the Nader-Gonzalez ticket “could win,” and “what was its strategy to win?” Gonzalez was forced to “defend Nader’s potential for success more than his stands on the issues.”

Moore has on his own website links to previous interviews with conservative national radio stations in Fayette, Missouri (Gary Nolan of KSSZ, Eagle 93.9 FM) and Chicago, Illinois (Jerry Agar of WLS 890 AM), plus the Socialist interviewed with conservative WFLA Radio in Tampa and the nationwide podcast PublicSquare.net, from Pennsylvania, the presidential series where Moore debated three conservative lesser-known presidential candidates from the Libertarian and Republican parties. The Socialist candidate also frequently calls in to the local conservative Brooksville station’s Bob Haa Program on WWJB 1450 AM radio. Even on a Tampa community television program, “Bleepin’ Truth,” Moore debates conservative Constitution party candidates only.

Socialist presidential candidate Moore has made overtures to progressive radio and television stations, either directly through phone calls, e-mails or with the assistance of fellow Socialist Party members. “Democracy Now,” “Air America” and other progressive internet stations have been contacted, unsuccessfully, in efforts to gain interviews for the minor party candidate.

Moore has also been hoping for an invitation from Tampa Bay’s local community radio station 88.5, WMNF, and its progressive Rob Lorei program. The program has discussed the Democratic primary campaign extensively.

    Why should he be invited anywhere? He’s wrong on everything. And Badnarik only inviting conservatives? Libertarianism is not conservatism, douche.

  2. Thomas L. Knapp Says:

    Joseph,

    The next time I meet someone who’s “wrong on everything” will be the first time.

    Offhand, Moore is right on the Patriot Act, warrantless wiretapping, COINTELPRO, maintaining the constitutional protections due those accused of crimes, free speech, the war, nuclear power (unless Price-Anderson is repealed), ending the Cuban embargo, cutting the US military budget (and at least in the ballpark as to how much), disbanding NATO, cutting off military aid to Colombia, immigration and capital punishment.

    Wrong on everything?

    Wow, I guess the last five plus years of my political life have been a waste, then. Thank you for that enlightening comment.

  4. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    ha. I was talking about his economic policies. Socialists want to bring us the Soviet Union, and you thought the Patriot Act was bad!

  5. Catholic Trotskyist Says:

    I am worried about Moore hurting the Obama Revolution, but I’m happy that he is on a libertarian talk sho bwecause it bodes well for the Fringe Alliance strategy. And he is not for bringing back the Stalinist Soviet Union.

  6. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    He is. He wants to bring back the old Soviet bloc style of governance.

  7. Andy Says:

    I listed to We The People Radio Network ( www.WTPRN.com ) and I’d say that it is more libertarian than conservative.
