I mentioned previously an article, “’Birtherism’ and the tyranny of ignorance,” at the Western Free Press site, where I had left a few comments. The discussion there has grown, attracting “Tea Party Power Hour” Internet Radio host, and Cold Case Posse video narrator Mark Gillar, and anti-birther HistorianDude.
Gillar challenged HistorianDude to debate him on his radio show but now, after HistorianDude accepted, has backed out. You can read some of the exchange where HistorianDude says:
Mark Gillar has now formally backed out of this debate, which had been scheduled for taping on April 5, for an April 6th broadcast. I formally accepted the debate offer, but once Mike Zullo of the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse got wind of the debate he asked Gillar to rescind the invitation and cancel the debate.
The excuse for turning tail and running from the debate is that Gillar presumably knows something about the ongoing “investigation” of the Cold Case Posse, and so is somehow muzzled from engaging in debates, lest he spill the beans, or perhaps lose because he can’t use all he knows. This excuse is essentially the same one given by John Sampson for refusing a subpoena from Orly Taitz last year. Love those magic phrases, “person of interest” and “ongoing investigation,” smoke screens to hide behind.
This would all be funny if it weren’t so pathetic. The truth is that Gillar would be reduced to a smoldering heap in a debate that tried to excuse the misconduct of the Cold Case Posse. Mike Zullo and the Cold Case Posse has been caught lying and fabricating evidence. If there is any justice in the world, they are the ones who should be investigated.
