Roger Hedgecock says destruction of Hiroshima & Chernobyl not so bad after all, was just "hysteria"

During his talk show on Jan.29, 2013 on KFMB AM in San Diego, the right wing commentator Roger Hedgecock said that the grave reports of nuclear destruction of Hiroshima in World War 2, as well as the meltdown and explosion of the Cernobyl nuclear power plant in 1988, were exaggerated due to "hysteria" from "anti-nuke folks". He suggested the areas have been improved by the disasters.

Hedgecock said he visited Hiroshima and rather than being "nuclear wasteland, unfit for habitation for a thousand years...devoid of life for tens of thousands of year" as predicted by "anti-war, anti-nuke folks," instead "Hiroshima is one of the most modern cities because it had an instant redevelopment plan" which he laughingly mentions "destroyed the whole city". He said Hiroshima was previously "a rabbit warren of mideval streets" but "it now has broad avenues, magnificent highrises" with "four or five times the population it had in 1945."

Hedgecock went on to say that this improvement by nuclear destruction "has happened again" in Chernobyl, Ukraine, the site of a nuclear power plant meltdown and explosion in 1986. The Chernobyl area now has a "surge in wildlife" with no mutations like "giant wolves or three-headed deer," Hedgecock said. "The dirtiest radioactive site in Europe has become the continent's biggest animal sanctuary. So much for the hysteria."

Roger Hedgecock advocates for guns on airplanes as good solution

Roger Hedgecock, right wing talk show host and ex-mayor of San Diego, says there should be more guns on airplanes.

On his U-T TV show of Jan.21, 2013, Hedgecock interviewed Larry Pratt, the extremist leader of Gun Owners of America. At one point Pratt said that more guns in the schools would have prevented the school massacre in Newtown, CT: "A lot of Americans now are thinking, wait a minute, if there'd been somebody with a gun at Newtown, surely it might've involved fewer than 20 people being murdered."

Hedgecock added, "And we know that's true in airplanes, it's true in the Aurora movie theater, it's true everywhere. In Columbine it would've been true as well."

Roger Hedgecock responds to Newtown, CT tragedy: Blames liberals, "political correctness"

Guns don't kill people, but signs that say "gun free zone" do kill people.

On Dec. 17, 2012, Roger Hedgecock, conservative talk radio host and former mayor of San Diego, California, responded to the Newtown, CT shooting tragedy that killed 20 children and 6 adults by blaming "liberals", political correctness, and added a comparison of President Obama to Hitler.

"Funny how all of these school massacres occur...in blue states."

"I am so tired of this politically correct society, it is producing these killers. I want to say that as clearly as I can. I think this politically correct society, after 50, 60 years of this stuff, is producing these killers. It is the product of political correctness."

On the Newtown, CT shooting again: "Liberals, you own this. Your gun-free zone has killed people...Liberals, you have caused these people to die. "

On Hitler: "In 1932 the man was simply bringing hope and change to Germany."

Hedgecock reads from Iranian propaganda to say Obama supports Al Qaeda

On Dec.14 of 2012, right wing talk show host Roger Hedgecock of KFMB in San Diego, CA reported the "remarkable news" that the Obama administration had "secretly" sent 3000 US troops back into Iraq and 17,000 "are about to go in." Hedgecock never named his source, referring only to "the press report" and "this press account", but what he read was verbatim from a report by the Iranian state media outlet Press TV, which is the only source to be found for the supposed troop movement. Hedgecock used the Iranian state media report to charge that Obama plans to invade Syria in order to install a pro-Al Qaeda government as part of his charge that Obama has "switched sides" in the war on terror.

The press report from Press TV, the Iranian state media outlet, is here: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/12/09/277127/3000-us-troops-secretly-return-to-iraq/

Full text:
"...Today, the remarkable news, that troops of the US military have, and I'll quote from the press report, secretly entered Iraq. ... Troops include US Army officers and 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route, that is, through Kuwait."

"So what is going on? 3000 troops in Iraq, 17,000 more, this press account says, are about to go in. Well, what's going on is, we're going to get into another war, in Syria.

"But this time we're going to be on the right side! We're going to be on the side of Al Qaeda, the winning side! (Laughs) I have to somehow joke and laugh about this because how tragic is this?"
"What about it, folks on the left? What about it, anti-war left, what about it, academics, uh, war for oil, uh, war for, whatever. Your president is gearing up for what looks like, hope I'm wrong, a new war in Syria.

"Unless they can get Assad out of there quickly, and get Al Qaeda in power quickly, like they did with the Muslim Brotherhood. Get Mubarek out so we don't have to send in our troops.

"Put the Muslim Brotherhood in power, so they can fulfill their dream, first stated in the 1920s, of reestablishing the caliphate, um, the caliph leading a united Muslim nation dedicated to the overthrow of all other governments and the extension of the realm of Allah to the entire globe, and the imposition of Sharia law on all people. That's the side we're on now.

"And yesterday I posited all that to Congressman Duncan Hunter. I said, listing all these things, does it sound to you, have we switched sides in this war on terror? And he said, yes we have. Just like that, he said yes we have.

Video: Roger Hedgecock says Obamacare means "You old people, hurry up and die"

During his Jan.23, 2013 talk show on KFMB AM, Roger Hedgecock, the right wing ex-mayor of San Diego, said that the recent controversial comments by Japan's finance minister about end-of-life medical care proves that Obamacare means "You old people, hurry up and die."

Hedgecock said that because Japan has universal healthcare, and because their finance minister made controversial remarks about the costs and value of keeping elderly, dying patients indefinitely on life support, this shows the intent of Obamacare and "the final government end of the road for all of these promises about medical care. When they can't afford their promises, you old people, hurry up and die."

Hedgecock charged that Obama said to old people, "take your pill, go home, because we're not going to care for you, that's it, you're done, you're gone." After not being able to find a clip of Obama actually saying these things, Hedgecock went on to advertise a "listener trip" to Canada -- which, of course, has universal healthcare.

video: Roger Hedgecock blames shark attacks on liberals

"The response of the crazy environmentalist mentality that runs this state has been to gin up some studies that show the Great White should be placed on the endangered species list because we need to protect them, there's not that many. Now so far, I dont know of anybody that's killed a Great White, though it is said some fishermen take the small sharks. Um, and I don't know that we need them protected against us when in the eight attacks it was the human being that was the victim. Now the CA Fish and Game Commission will consider on February 6th whether to declare the Great White Sharks a candidate for protection and recommend to the federal government that they get protection and at the same time under the California Endangered Species Act as well.

"Now here's what's actually happening. The sharks used to be fished when they did show up and not many of them did but when they did show up they were fished. Shark boats went out at night and took care of the sharks. Sharks, of course, avoided this area because they knew they were being hunted here. They're not dumb. Now that they're not being hunted here because there's a new rule in California it's like the gun-free zone. We now have a shark-free zone. As a consequence we've had eight shark attacks in one year, where before that the last one was in 1959. So now we have a great-white free zone."
