EDITOR’S NOTE: It has been brought to the attention of AATTP editorial staff that the following article contained material that was not solely of the author’s own penning. Upon review of the source material, and review of the material originally published by AATTP we have concluded that there is enough merit to the claim that we have redacted the bulk of the article and clearly linked back to the original source. AATTP takes great pride in producing original, thought provoking articles and editorial, and adamantly attempts to insure that all source material is cited properly and used in the spirit of fair use. In this instance, we were compelled to take immediate action to correct an error on our part. We regret that an article that did not live up to our high internal standards was allowed to make it onto the site, and apologize for the error.
Last Tuesday Michelangelo Signorile, host of the Sirius XM Progress radio show named for him took a call from John in Houston, Texas who identified himself as not Republican, not Democrat” but rather, “a 100 percent American.” Of course he began to immediately attack the President with Republican talking points, so Signorile responded by educating him to the facts before he attacked and took all of the wind from his sails.
His claim of being an independent is the classic conservative ploy, they seem to think that by claiming that they do not like either party they will not be seen to be the staunch conservative that they are in reality and John immediately took to attacking the President.
To read the complete confrontation between Signorile and the “100% American” please check out the extensive coverage supplied by Daily Kos.
