    Conservative radio host gets waterboarded, and lasts six seconds before.....

    Saying its torture.

    Note: The last thread on this had some great discussion in it, until it was trolled so badly that it was finally sent to the basement. To me, this is an important enough topic that it should not die just because a few people want to ruin it, so I am reposting it. I respectfully ask the mods to monitor this thread, and to be extremely Liberal with thread bans. Thanx in advance. Open discussion on this issue, which I feel is a very important one, is not going to die, just because a few troublemakers want it to. Whether an offender is on the left or the right, I will be reporting ALL posts which attempt to derail the discussion.


    Not all Conservative talk show hosts are big sissies like Sean Hannity. Controversial Conservative host Erich Mancow is one of them. Unlike Hannity, he followed through on his pledge to be waterboarded, and the result? He lasted 6 seconds, and now believes that waterboarding IS torture.

    The upshot? "It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that's no joke," Mancow told listeners. "It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back...It was instantaneous...and I don't want to say this: absolutely torture."
    Mancow has my respect, not only for practicing what he preaches, but also for honestly admitting that he was wrong. Too bad Hannity is not the same way. It seems that Mancow has more honesty in his little finger than Hannity has in his whole body.

    I want to see what the hyperpartisans are going to say now. Are they going to accept this, or has Mancow just now magically become a Liberal jihadist who hates America?

    I'm in awe that some don't see waterboarding as torture. How can it not be? Justify it all you want, but it cannot be regarded as anything else. Period.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yes Mancow was a denier up until he went through six seconds of waterboarding..now he is a believer.

    Anybody who comes on this thread claiming to have been waterboarded needs to provide the facts and circumstances of such an act...or they will be ignored a buffoons..

    As they should be.

    I also have a lot of respect for Mancow. It's obvious that beforehand he really didn't think it was that big of a deal. The fact that Hannity hasn't followed through tells me that he probably thinks that it is torture as well deep down. The problem is that this entire "what is torture?" debate could become a very slippery slope. I think we have obviously have to draw the line somewhere. I realize that our enemies do far worse, but I've always thought that we, as Americans, like to hold ourselves to a higher standard than our enemies. To me, that is what separates us from them.

    I guess a better question would be; would you consider it torture if they did it to our soldiers?

    Add to that the knowledge that he could stop it at any time and it was not for real. That's a whole different can of worms, yet he still only laster 6 seconds.

    There's no other definition for waterboarding other than torture.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Who do you want dead?

    So it would be OK for them to Waterboard our ununiformed civilian contractors to death while trying to draw false confessions out of them by torturing them?

    Mancow told us what he thought after six seconds of having water poured down his nose and throat.

    Drowning= death.
