A Final Note on Mark Shannon

In regards to Mark Shannon’s half-hearted retraction of his potentially libelous allegations that RJ Harris is a “shaven headed Nazi”, and in regard to Shannon’s continued allegations that the Harris 2010 campaign supports 911 conspiracies; the campaign offers the following response:

Comparing our veterans and Mr. Harris to Lee Harvey Oswald, Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols is hardly any more appropriate or accurate than the original disparaging comment. Again, I am appalled that Mr. Shannon would be allowed to make such disparaging comments about our veterans from a respectable local radio station. Should KTOK not begin to take action about these heinous comments being made on their air, we may have to reconsider whether or not it deserves that label. No RJ Harris 2010 campaign volunteer was provided “Alex Jones” or “911 truth” DVDs by the campaign. Our flyers display the caption “paid for and distributed by RJ Harris 2010”, those DVD’s do not. Shannon most likely knows that the actions of random “supporters” are impossible to control. For him to criticize RJ for not “controlling” people is disingenuous at best. RJ has never stated that he believes in any 911 conspiracy. RJ has stated that these issues may have unanswered questions and that a full non-partisan investigation should always be completed in the wake of any controversial/catastrophic issue. A lack of transparency or fair investigations can lead to more conspiracy theories and a lack of credibility on the part of the investigation. Having a fair and open investigation helps to stray off any doubts. Lastly, our campaign has received zero complaints about our staffers and supporters being “obnoxious.” However, given the ugliness displayed by Shannon on his radio show the last few days it hardly seems credible for him to level such a charge against anyone else but himself.

About these issues, Mr. Shannon is either lying or is miss-informed and we will have to leave it to the attorneys to figure out which one. On Monday’s show Mr. Shannon made his real intentions clear when he argued that RJ was stupid for getting into an argument with a “drive time” radio host. This statement signals Shannon’s potentially libelous purpose to destroy RJ and separates his on-air rant from legitimate free speech.

  1. Daniel Ryan Johnson Says:

    I gave Mr. Shannon a chance back in December when I listened to his show for the first time. The first thing he did after I tuned in was insult Mr. Glenn Beck in the typical fashion that Mr. Beck’s detractors like to insult him in. After that I decided I had no use for him any longer and changed the station to some frequency that plays the mindless drivel they call music these days. His insult of Mr. Beck was highly telling.

    Anyone who insults people like Mr. Beck, the Honorable Dr. Ron Paul, and indeed yourself, Mr. Harris, in this fashion says to me that the person is either ignorant or in love with big government. I’m not entirely sure which it is in his case, but I think it is a little bit of both. He demonstrates his ignorance by calling you a “shaven headed nazi.” If he is attempting to suggest that you are a racist he is obviously ignorant of your own race and culture, because if he weren’t then he would know that suggesting that you are racist would be ludicrous.

    If he calls you a nazi to suggest that you are something like Adolf Hitler then he is not only ignorant of what you believe but also ignorant of what Hitler, the German National Socialist Party, and fascism in general stands for.

    My mother once called him an angry old man. I would go so far as to call him an angry and jealous old man. He is jealous of people like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity because he will never be as educated, well informed, or popular as they are. He is jealous of anyone who has the cajones to actually stand up and fight for what they believe in, regardless of what they believe, because he can only hide behind a microphone. He is in favor of big government because he feels that he must let them provide for him do to his own inability to do so. Finally, he is afraid of anyone who will stand up to the government and take back oir freedom, because he is afraid of freedom itself, because he is too small of a man to handle the awesome responsibility that comes with that freedom.
