Bo Dietl, an MSNBC analystand Chairman of the New York State Security Guard Advisory Council (appointed by former Gov. George Pataki), unleashed a disturbing, ill-informed rant about President Obama’s citizenship during an interview today with Don Imus.
It’s important to stop and note that Dietl, while over-the-top, is not a political nobody.
According to MSNBC, he ran security for the 1992 and 1996 Republican National Conventions, and 23 years ago he ran for Congress in New York. He lost that election, but he’s led a very successful career in security and become regular cable news guest. And in this interview, he bought into two of the stupidest pieces of “evidence” in the birtherverse — a 2004 Kenyan newspaper story that referred to then-candidate Obama as “Kenyan-born,” and a rumor that a Kenyan village was building a monument on Obama’s supposed birthplace.
“If this is not true, let’s end this!” Dietl yells, holding up printouts of the bogus stories. “That’s the paper from Kenya, we got to step up!” After Dietl accuses a skeptical Imus of “going aboard the socialist patrol,” his microphone is cut, and he keeps on screaming.
