Petition For MSNBC to Apologize For Bonaduce Death Threats

I am offended & appalled at the irresponsible and hate filled comments of washed up, drug addicted former child actor Danny Bonaduce on Scarborough Country on MSNBC. His calling for the execution of Rosie O'Donnell for questioning the events of September 11, 2001 crosses the line of free speech and is completely unacceptable. His venomous words are ironic as he claims to be a man fighting against terrorism, yet freely makes terrorist threats against O'Donnell and anyone questioning the events of 9/11. Here are some recent polls from various sources that asked large amounts of people whether they doubt the government's official account of what happened on September 11th or not:

1. SCRIPPS/HOWARD, July 2006
36% of respondents overall said it is "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that
federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center
and the Pentagon or took no action to stop them "because they wanted the
United States to go to war in the Middle East."

2. ZOGBY, Feb 2006
49.3% of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say
that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or
around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act".

3. MSNBC, Sept 2006
"Do you believe any of the conspiracy theories suggesting the U.S.
government was somehow involved in 9/11?"
YES: 62%
NO: 32%

4. COLBERT NATION, June 2006
"Was 9/11 an inside job?"
YES: 66%
NO: 33%

5. 911INQUIRY.ORG, Oct 2005
77 % of people in Quebec and 57% in Ontario say "Individuals within the
U.S. Government including the White House had prior knowledge of the
plans for the events of September 11th, and failed to take appropriate action
to stop them".

6. AM 640 RADIO TORONTO, August 2006
"Was 9/11 an inside job?"
YES: 85%
NO: 14%

7. CNN, Nov 2004
"Do you believe there is a US government cover up surrounding 911?"
YES: 90%
NO: 10%

8. CBS/New York Times, Oct 2006
Is the government "Telling the truth" about 911?
YES: 16%
NO: 81% (53% say "hiding something", 28% say "mostly lying")

Going by the justification given by Danny Bonaduce for why Ms. O'Donnell should be put to death, all of these citizens should probably be killed too. Perhaps, according to Bonaduce's logic, these wives of some of the victims of the 9/11 attack who are featured in the documentary "9/11 Press For Truth" should also be executed for questioning how their husbands were killed: Bill Doyle, head of the Coalition of 9/11 Families, the largest 9/11 victims' family group, says that he believes there was government complicity in the attack & that half of the victims' family members he represents share this belief So under Bonaduce's logic, at least half if not a majority of the family members of the victims of the September 11th attack should be executed as well! The call for mass genocide of concerned citizens by this brain damaged degenerate is disgraceful and highly disrespectful to the 9/11 victims and our country. His aggressive discouragement for further investigation into what happened on 9/11 to be done and encouragement that more American troops be killed over the dubious claims in the "official" account of the event, and sent to attack countries that have little to nothing to do with even the government's own story of what happened show a complete disdain for American troops and citizens alike. This actually is treason. Ms. O'Donnell's valid questions and comments, however, are not treasonous and her making them is actually an act of patriotism on her part in standing up for her country and the truth. I am therefore demanding an apology from MSNBC for this despicable, violent comment. There is no justification for the victims of September 11th and their loved ones, as well as the American troops who are dying in thousands unsure of what they're fighting for, the hundreds of thousands of civilians dying in Iraq and the Middle East over lies told to Americans, and the American citizens including those who are concerned as they watch their country systematically destroyed and it's reputation ruined to be disgraced and attempted to be intimidated in this fashion. MSNBC must apologize for this act or it will been seen as having been complicit in the threat. I hope you make the correct choice and apologize for this travesty and disgrace to the American people.

Show "Apologies" by JamesB

Barrett doesnt speak for me,

Barrett doesnt speak for me, neither does Fetzer nor do they broadcast to millions worldwide. Have to watch what you say when you do that.

Who do you speak for?

Danny Bonaduce does not speak for me

And I don't even watch MSNBC, so I guess I won't ask for an apology either. Both Fetzer and Barrett have radio shows, even if their audience is not in the millions.

I speak for myself by the way. I have never made any pretensions of speaking for any group.

Thank you

So when you say

"Both Fetzer and Barrett have radio shows, even if their audience is not in the millions."

you show your original comparison does not bear examination.

"I have never made any

"I have never made any pretensions of speaking for any group."

what a loser.

First comment

I recommend reading the first comment (at hidden status), not because the purpose of the comment is right, but because all activists need to be aware of the history of the movement in order to respond correctly to such statements.

I think the second comment is a good response. But if people do not see the interaction they will deny the accusations - since they won't know about them - or be surprised enough not to be able to respond well.

Also, I would take the "washed up drug addicted" phrase out of the first sentence of the main post -- we don't need to stoop to their level to take action. Whether Kevin Barrett, Jim Fetzer, Bonaducce or anyone else calls for anyone else's execution or special place in hell, viewers have the right to respond and to demand apologies. Keep a higher standard at all times.


Also, I would take the "washed up drug addicted" phrase out of the first sentence of the main post

Considering one of the most public faces of the truth movement right now is Charlie Sheen, a man most famous for his overconsumption of drugs and prostitutes, I also found that rather ironic.

The real irony is that no

The real irony is that no one will discuss the issues Charlie, an actor, brought up on an entertainment program, but simply attack him personally. Rosie raised basic questions which are shared by a large percentage of Americans, just as Charlie did.  So to further their attacks, they bring a long term drug addicted moron onto a "news show" to call for her execution.

James, you are exhibiting an "irony gap."  But your renewed presence on the board indicates that knees are knockin', so thanks for the validation.

Show "Huh?" by JamesB

I think many religious

I think many religious communities are hilarious, deluded, and flat-out wrong, but I don't spend time on their websites.

Sorry, that dog don't hunt.

Danny's comment, that if

Danny's comment, that if "anybody had a rope thick enough, she should be hung for treason" I would say is borderline to encouraging people to kill her for what they might perceive as treason, but it could also be interpreted as if she was found guilty of treason in a court then this prescribed method..
So ,no, forget a petition, the man should be sued for issuing threats and inciting to violence, but not MSNBC, because Scarbourogh clearly expressed that he was of an opposite position.
Especially because this is a country where mob hangings have a long history. It's always good to test where the line goes. And because alot of comments on the internet calls for her to be killed after Danny's comment. Free speach does not include inciting to violence, does it?
Barret clearly talks about a peoples court decision, so that is quite something else in my opinion. Throwing a person in a habor is by the way not a murder, unless that person drowns of course, but I don't know how good a swimmer O'Reily is.

I would actually agree with that, but when O'Reilly said this about Barrett, Barrett had a fit to the point of filing a complaint with the FCC. Fetzer issued a breathless press release complaining he was making death threats.

Can you give me link to that

Can you give me link to that video? I might not have seen it..I think Barret talked about trowing an efigy of O'reilly in the habour and not O'Reilly himself.
