Todays WTF moment-courtesy of Roger Hedgecock.

The former mayor of  San Diego, who btw left office disgraced,(what rethug doesn’t),  has come to a very strange conclusion of why Bill Sparkman was murdered:

It’s the illegal immigrants and the Mexican Drug Cartels.

I shit you not. From ThinkProgress via the LAProgressive piece linked above:

The latest comes from right-wing radio host Rodger Hedgecock who seems convinced that the country’s “open border policy” must have had something to do with Sparkman’s gruesome death. Hedgecock dismisses the possibility that Sparkman was targeted and killed by someone motivated by the anti-government rhetoric being spewed by teabaggers and right-wing politicians who have explicitly bashed the US Census, and instead claims that “illegals” at “pot plantations” may be the cause of forest fires and Sparkman’s death:

 Now it looks more like Sparkman was yet another victim of illegal drug operations on national forest land, and possibly also a victim of our still open border with Mexico.
Our open border with Mexico has been changing American society in a number of unpleasant ways. These fires, these destroyed national forest lands, and maybe even Bill Sparkman’s death, may just be the latest way.

Ole Roger is really stretching it here, as the law enforcement folks believe the meth activity in the area might be to blame and those dudes consist of  local inbred white guys.

These guys just crack me a sick twisted way.

  1. That's a good one.  Perhaps those folks might contact me.  I have an alpine ski resort in Kansas for sale. 😉

  2. I didn't realize Kentucky had slid down and become a border state.  I guess I need to go look at a map.


  3. I know..I was wondering about that too YnB. 😉

  4. Well I got prime ocean front property in Barstow Tom. 😉

  5. It is no strech, Hedgecock seems to have facts to back his theory. Knox County connects to Clay County on the south.

    The fact is, Mr. Sparkman was in an area where there is no known anti-government activity, and an area that is known for it's marujiana trade. It is highly likely that he was killed by a drug dealer.

    “Officers with the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force are arresting people on a near daily basis across Appalachia — but for the first time, they’re finding evidence that Mexican drug organizations are growing marijuana in the area. “

  6. Hedgecock stretch's it to include the 'open' borders, which btw has always been his cause celebre..that is the part I find bullshit Guest. I readily admit that Meth Labs and Pot fields proliferate in that area.But the article you link to says it's not like they have concrete proof the Mexican drug cartels are financing the majority of these operations, nor has there been a huge upsurge in Mexican drug cartels financing in KY that the law enforcement officials can say unequivocably.

    “We saw one in Knox County that we believe was grown by a Mexican drug trafficking organization, and one in Campbell County,” Keller said. HIDTA officials are basing that belief on “the characteristics of the grows and cultivation sites. There are a large number of plants, they stay on the site, camp out and watch the site daily, and you determine it by the debris they leave behind, by what they eat.”

  7. Sitting here playing with all the things the comment box can do and forgot what I was going to say.

    You have to hand it to the Mexican drug cartel.  Who would've thought they'd be in Kentucky! See how that works. 

  8. It's amazing ain't it Wordsmith! 😉

    What I like about JSKit is the ability to ban someone who has become a pain in my arse. I don't think I should have to put up with the rightwing nutters when they make it personal.

  9. dammit!  next thing you know, we'll have mexican fried chicken stores across the nation.  i want my country back!!!   >:o

  10. Maybe Hedgecock is like those high school kids who are void of geographical knowledge.  Perhaps he thinks Kentucky is located between California and New Mexico somewhere?

  11. HA! CRACK you up huh?? I get it!

    This is too much. A Mexican would stick out in that area of the nation. In fact, what Mexican would WANT to be there? NOBODY wants to be there.

    But what the hell else is the asshole going to say? That it was something other than illegals? NAAA! Can't be.

  12. Hey, all alert- IT WASN'T A POT DEALER-  No one is going to tend, fertilize, water, protect, and monitor daily 3 or 4 acres of pot for 6 to 8 months, then BLOW THE WHOLE THING by murdering someone in such an attention-getting fashion.  You'd be putting practically your WHOLE YEARS' WORK at jeopardy- believe me, I know.

    A pot grower is much more likely to FORGET to murder someone than to murder them.

    Just think like an investigator, and there are only two conclusions, either he was murdered by people that hate feds, and they want to send a message, or he was murdered for a completely different reason, and the “feds” thing is to divert attention from that.  If it was a meth dealer that did it, he was definitely “anti-government”, so what difference does it make if he made meth or knitted sweaters?

    The former Mayor of San Diego is an idiot.

  13. What I want to know is when does the Mexican Drug Cartel® plan on opening shop up here, dammit.

  14. Really?  With female lifeguards? 😀

  15. Jack, I agree..the pot folks have much more time and energy invested in their product than the Meth Labs.It's a no brainer to me that it's either Meth Lab or anti-govt idiots that murdered Bill Sparkman.

    I was merely humoring the Guest that tried to say it was the pot growers. He was nice and made his point without being nasty. Gotta give him credit for that.

  16. Randal..Cali homegrown is the best pot in the world..screw the Mexican Drug Cartels 😉

  17. Yeah, it had to be those dangerous tea baggers.  I remember how violent they were in D.C.

  18. Yo refugee, wtf are you talking about? The issue on this post is the idiot known as Roger Hedgecock.

    The teabaggers dangerous? Only if you disagree with them..such a hateful bunch. 😉
