According to the Classical Liberal blog, “land developer Treg Loyden” spoke with Wayne Allyn Root on the campaign trail, and heard Root say:
“America should just let Israel alone, defend itself, and go nuke the heck out of those Iranian cockroaches. Blow ‘em all up… just nuke the place for a thousand years.”
UPDATE: I contacted Root through his website, seeking clarification. On July 20th, Root responded as follows:
“NOT accurate at all. Ask Steve Kubby. He was a witness. He backs up that this was NOT what was said. So ridiculous. I’m busy Thomas traveling the nation and winning over non-Libertarians, Republicans, Reagan Democrats, independents to our message.
“6% poll numbers nationwide (translating to 6 to 7 million voters) certainly prove the value of our message.
“And by the way I’ve done dozen upon dozen of radio interviews (certainly more than any LP VP ever)…my responses on Iraq and EVERY issue have been well received by the American public. I take live calls across USA from total strangers…and to date EVERY single caller has been won over by my appearances. We’re winning lots of fans!
Have a nice day.
