Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey – Obama, Appeasement and Iran
The Mack Truck discusses Barack Obama’s stated intention to negotiate with Iran. It’s an excerpt from the May 19th episode of The Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey Show. A transcript follows the video.
ANNOUNCER: Like a Mack Truck, except filled with truth, it’s The Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey Show.
HENRY: Okay, yes, this is The Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey Show. And today we’re talking about appeasement and Barack Obama and Iran and the things that Bush said in Israel, which were referring to Obama, everyone assumes, and how he wants to talk to these guys and negotiate with them. And my opinion is you can’t negotiate with Iran or these terrorist organizations. You just can’t talk to them. They don’t want to talk.
Like, if a robber comes in your house to rob you, you can’t negotiate with him, because he’ll shoot you in the face. So you give him everything you have. Now, that’s not–I’m not–That metaphor didn’t turn out the way I intended. I’m not saying we should give Iran everything we have. I’m saying, you can’t sit there and talk to them and say, “Hey, maybe I’ll give you this, if you don’t shoot me in the face.” I mean, you can’t do that, right?
The real answer is, you have a gun, too, and so do your kids and so does your wife. And so you then have four guns, and he has one, and you shoot him in the face before he shoots you. And, you know, maybe your kids miss and stuff, but your or your wife probably hit him.
And that’s the Bush foreign policy: I have five guns to your one, so I will always win. And therefore, I don’t have to negotiate with you about whether you’re going to take my couch or my television, because I just shot you in the face.
