Moron waterboarded and concludes – it is torture
On one hand I like to commend this guy, conservative talker Eric “Mancow” Muller for being brave enough to be waterboarded. On the other hand, though, when you read descriptions about it, it’s clear that waterboarding is torture. I don’t have to hit my head against the wall to know that it’s going to hurt. I have no desire to jump out of a speeding car to find out that I could break bones. I have no desire to have somebody put a wet cloth over my nose and mouth while I aspirate water. I feel pretty confident that that’s drowning. Also… what took him so long? The United States has been waterboarding since 2002 and I posted my first video of somebody getting themselves waterboarded back in 2006. That was three years ago. Where’s this guy been?
Watch the video:
Turns out the stunt wasn’t so funny. Witnesses said Muller thrashed on the table, and even instantly threw the toy cow he was holding as his emergency tool to signify when he wanted the experiment to stop. He only lasted 6 or 7 seconds.
“It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that’s no joke,”Mancow said, likening it to a time when he nearly drowned as a child. “It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back…It was instantaneous…and I don’t want to say this: absolutely torture.”
“I wanted to prove it wasn’t torture,” Mancow said. “They cut off our heads, we put water on their face…I got voted to do this but I really thought ‘I’m going to laugh this off.’”
