Exclusive: Washington Times Commentator on President Obama: "You are a traitor to your country."
Today Jeffrey Kuhner, commentator for Sun Myung Moon's Washington Times, gave his weekly "special report" on Michael Savage's radio show and discussed President Obama's recent speech before the Turkish parliament. Like some others on the American right, Kuhner accused Obama for apologizing for America to the parliament. Throughout his report, Kuhner referred to the president as "Barack Hussein Obama" and ended his report by saying to President Obama: "You are a traitor to your country."
This is not unusual for Kuhner. When he was editor of Moon's now-defunct online magazine Insight, Kuhner first propagated the myth that Obama had been raised as a Muslim and was educated in a madrassa (On Sean Hannity's radio program, Kuhner encouraged Muslim extremists to view Obama as an apostate). Having Kuhner making these inflammatory comments to the audience of an unhinged nut like Savage is scary. Kuhner's rhetoric supports the report by the Department of Homeland Security that warns about the potential for violence by the American right.
