Description

short excerpts from an appearance by Roger Stone on Henrik Palmgren's Red Ice Radio broadcast, where he justifies Nixon's anti-dissident program on the basis that there was a real threat of a communist takeover at the time. Stone is a long-time Republican operative, who worked on the election campaigns of Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush in 2000, and managed Gary Johnson's campaign on the Libertarian party ticket in 2012. Next is an excerpt from an episode of Red Ice Radio where Palmgren interviews Dennis Wise, a man who denies the holocaust, is very sympathetic to Adolf Hitler, and created the documentary, "Adolf Hitler: The Greatest Story Never Told". During the course of the interview, Wise presents the Jews as a corrupting and dangerous influence, as troublemakers who got the U.S. into World War I, as part of a communist conspiracy to take over Germany - their internment is defended as anti-communism, just as Stone defended Nixon's anti-dissident program as anti-communism. The clips of Dennis Wise are not presented as an endorsement of his views, but entirely the converse. These are dangerous, toxic views. A constant refrain is that the hard right is a fringe movement that is away and apart from mainstream conservatism. However, here we have a Republican operative, who worked to get Nixon, Reagan, and George W. Bush elected, going on Palmgren's show to promote his book, presumably because here he will find a receptive audience. This suggests that the fringe right isn't fringe at all, but a large branch of the same river.
