Greta Van Susteren Spars with (Democratic?) Candidate Mike Dickinson

By: Galen Velonis - April 12, 2014

Greta Van Susteren invited Mike Dickinson, a man who claims to be running for congress, on her show for some verbal sparring. Even though Dickinson is a Democrat, he may not be on the Democratic ballot in November.

The segment began with Dickinson’s tweet last week, in which he declared a “war on Fox News”. The war not only ragged over Twitter but also caught the attention of Greta Van Susteren, who ran a segment about the war on her Fox Show “On the Record”. A few days later, Dickinson made an appearance on her show.

“I think the facts are misrepresented,” Mike Dickinson said on Van Susteren’s show, explaining he launched the war because Fox News “encourages people to fight the government, like Obama and the federal government is this big, bad authority.”

Van Susteren made no mention of the encounter on her Twitter account, ukline Dickinson who started up a hashtag, #VoteMikeonGreta:

Although he was introduced as the Democratic candidate challenging Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the deadline for filing in that district passed that day. In fact, the Democrats of the 7th Congressional District of Virginia cancelled their nominating convention. “No candidates filed to be considered for the nomination,” Richmond City Democratic Committee announced on their website, “Therefore, the Convention previously scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd has been cancelled.”

Because the deadline passed, many speculated Dickinson dropped out of the race, which he denied:

When then asked why he did not file to be on the ballot, Dickinson evaded the question:

Dickinson continues to make noise about running for office on his twitter account. It remains unknown if he will gain any more attention from the media if he continues to make tweets like this one:

    FOX NEWS and the talking heads on it are in no way “fair and balanced”. They are Republican demogogues who stir the emotions of people for personal and political gain. If you will Google Rupert Murdoch, he founder of FOX NEWS, and its top executives, Roger Ailes and heir apparnt to Rupert Murdoch, Chase Carey, former CEO of DirecTV, the most crooked of all the crooked satelite TV companies. DirecTv is sometimes sued and fined millions, but not nearly often enough. Millions in fines are peanuts to the crooked DirecTv. Google “DirecTv complaints” and see for yourself. Chase Carey is just another mega-rich cancer added to FOX NEWS and News Crporation, which news manipulator Rupert Murdoch is Chairman. Google “James Murdoch”, the son of Rupert Murdoch, who soon may soon be put in jail for a wiretapping scandal that put the oldest tabloid in England out of business.

      “sued” …. “soon be put in jail” …… “news manipulator”……”mega-rich cancer”
      Yo Al… thx for your views, but we all have eyes and ears and can figure out by the video and your post who the “demogogues” and “cancers” are.

      Just like MSNBC and the talking heads on it are in no way “fair and balanced”. They are Democrat demogogues who stir the emotions of people for personal and political gain, as well as to line the pockets of GE who owns them.

    Typical libtard…runs his mouth and when he gets called on it, he says something to the effect of “I didn’t say that!”, “I didn’t mean it that way!” or worse yet, “You took me out of context!”

    This guy ought to do everyone a favor and fill out his application for a custodial assistant, and NOT contend to be another useless goof in Washington, DC. He cannot even figure out if we was CEO or not of a particular strip club organization? I wonder if he can find his own a$$ while using both of his hands? You’re all done Mr. Dickinson, please go home.

    Instead of all the juvenile remarks, just yuse your head for something besides a hat rack and have the courage to Google what I suggested. You see, Hoppytoo, you demonstrate the lack of intelligence far too many who ar brainwashed by Fox News. You’re so very easy to fool. Try this–Google “50 richest members of Congress”. Republicn Senator John McCain is 28th t richest with $10 million. Now Google “Cindy McCain”, his wife. She is worth $100 million. Now consider this: Democrat President F.D. Roosevetl defeated Hitller in WWII. Then Democrat President Harry Truman dropped the atomic bomb on Japan because the Japanese Emperor wanted to conguer the world. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sent U.S. military advisers into Viet Nam in 1953. Then in 1961 President Eiswnhower sent U.S. troops into war against Viet Nam . There were 50,000 U.S. soldiers killed in Viet Nam. Then Republican President Richrd Nixon expanded the Viet Nam war and sent U.S. troops into Cambodia. Next Republican President Ronald Reagan sent U.S. troops into Grenada, an island with a population of only 89,000. Then Republican President Bush 1 attacked Iraq two different times during his terms in office. Then Republican President Bush 2 sent U.S. troops into Iraq again and then into Afganistan. Under Democrat President Obama, our U.S. troops have been brought out of Iraq. And by the end of 2014, our soildiers will be out of Afghanistan. So bsed on history, if you want to go to war for oil, elect a Republican President.Obviously you are too lazy to read history have no education and no vocabulary other than small, vulgar words.

    Allen Hill, you must have been to young to remember Vietnam or you would know that Kennedy sent in the combat troops and Johnson escalated the war. Throw away your class notes on the era and look in the newspapers for the timeline.
