Yes, it is true. Michael Reagan advocated the murder of a specific individual by name while on air doing his radio show. Learn who Michael Reagan wants dead and why here. http://www.theresistancemanifesto.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=96 I was shocked by this. While in agreement with Michael Reagan concerning much, I believe he has crossed the line and should be fired. Additionally, the man who Michael Reagan advocated be murdered should sue Michael Reagan for a huge serious amount of money. What do you say and thing about this?

While I don't think it is a good idea to publicly call for someone's murder, especially on the air... I think that he did have a valid point. Mark Dice's group is attempting to demoralize our troops in a time of war, which I view as a form of working against America and supporting those we are fighting with his anti-war propaganda. Jane Fonda did much the same in Vietnam, as did several others. They were not well received either. I would have to say that I am of two minds on this issue.

I have to go with freedom of speech unless it can be shown absolutely the material mailed to troops was false. If Mark Dice was mailing false seditious material to the troops, then he should be charged with the appropiate crime and sent to prison. Calling for his murder is absurd and dangerous. The purpose of freedom of speech is exactly to allow people like Mark Dice to have their say. This keeps the government in line. That said, demonstrably false, seditious material that Mark Dice or anyone else knows to not be true but spread it anyway with malicious intent have committed a crime. Charge him but certainly don't call for his murder. I have not read Mark Dice's materials so I don't know what claims he made. I do know for certain the US government has lied to us concerning 9-11 and the Iraq war. Whether those lies were truely in the interest of National Security or to cover up crimes and incompetance, I don't know.

Reagan stepped over the line. Plain and simple. Even with the apology and the free publicity the plain and simple fact calling for murder of a political advesary is dangerous. We take people off the air for far less.

Additionally, when the wronged man was on Reagan's show to accept the apology, he pointed out that in California such a public statement calling for someone's murder is a crime. Sounds good to me. Charge him, fire him, and sue him.

Michael Reagan should be very proud. He's placed himself on a par with Al Qaeda operatives who feel it's their right and responsibility to eliminate those among the otherwise faithful who fall short of the expected standard. Take them to a public place, tie their hands, humiliate them, and kill them as an example to others. This is the new America? One where public figures advocate the elimination of dissent via threats of random assassination? Yeah, great example for the rest of the world to follow. Oh wait, looks we would be following their example! Go figure.

I do agree that Michael Reagan went too far and should be fired. He no longer represents the conservative view point, the American view point, or any decent person's view point. Michael Reagan is now a wanna be thug.
