Ventura takes waterboarding ‘school’ to Fox & Friends

A day after talking about waterboarding on ABC’s The View, Jesse Ventura took his case for prosecuting torture to Fox News.



“You are worried about [the terrorists’] welfare,” accused Fox’s Brian Kilmeade.

“No. I’m not worried about their welfare. I’m worried about what our country stands for,” Ventura responded.

This video is from Fox’s Fox & Friends, broadcast May 19, 2009.

    so-called progressives or liberals dissed

    Jesse Ventura.

    I’d take him any day.

  1. …banned from some sites!  Alas!

  2. I like this Ventura guy a lot!  He has morals and principles and he doesn’t back down.  Good for him!  Would that we had more like him.  I love his relentless stand for what he believes in and stands up for!  And, just by happenstance, I happen to agree with him.!

    Good one, Edge!

  3. I see a blank space where I think a video is supposed to be.

  4. The streaming lies out of that FOX guy’s mouth are just too much.

    Ventura didn’t back down.  He’s one tough cookie.

  5. after Jesse challenged him to serve. I love it!

  6. What a relief to post on a site that doesn’t ban the diarist and anyone audacious enough to express agreement with Ventura.

    Perhaps you can imagine the effect of including Ventura as a third party candidate in the 1998 Minnesota Gubernatorial Debate.  The other two candidates obviously did not take him seriously. Norm Coleman-R (former Democrat, then converted to the Republicanista party, and more recently, former U. S. Senator) and Hubert “Skip” Humphrey III-D (yes, the Happy Warrior’s Son) were comfortably in the lead at the time.  The debate, rather than a sure-fire cure for insomnia turned into one of the most interesting shows of all time, leading the viewer to impatiently wait for the other two candidates to quit spouting their meaningless drivel in order to hear what Ventura would say next. The only regret was not having made popcorn in order to even better appreciate the spectacle.

    An aside:  Perhaps some (or most) of you know that Ventura was a pro wrestler earlier in his career. This writer saw him many times on Sunday morning television, not due to being a wrestling fan, but because the only other options were tee-vee ministers or a local polka party dance show.  The best part always came after the match, when Ventura would launch into his schtick with the announcer.  If you are curious, there are several Jesse Ventura wrestling videos available on youtube.

    he was governor of Minnesota. A true independent voice. That’s probably the most mainstream, high-profile raising of serious questions about 9/11 that we’ve yet seen. In some ways, it may turn out that the torture controversy will re-open the door to questions about 9/11. If Bush Co. was willing to subvert our basic law and humanity with the use of torture in order to further its objective of waging war in the Middle East, is it really that unthinkable that they’d allow planes to crash into the World Trade Center for the same purpose?

  7. I think Ventura started out with a few body slams, and then capped it off with his primary opponent (i.e., Kilmeade) crawling under the bottom rope and running out of the arena. fearful of being thrown out of the ring, head first, over the top rope.

    Unlike professional wrestling, I doubt that Ventura and Kilmeade went out for beers afterward.
