On yesterday's edition of AFA Radio's Focal Point, far-right history revisionist, host of TCT's Faith in History, and former 3-time Congressional loser (twice against former Minority leader Dick Gephardt in 1998 and 2000, and once against Congressman Russ Carnahan in 2004) Bill Federer spewing out wild conspiracy theories, including where Federer suggests that "President Barack Obama will use an Invasion of Iran as an excuse to attempt a shutdown of TV, radio, and the internet."
"If he’s feeling desperate come November, President Barack Obama just might create a pretext to launch a war with Iran, then seize control of radio, television and Internet signals to ensure his reelection." Or, at least, that’s what former Republican congressional candidate Bill Federer said Friday during a radio interview.From the 09.06.2012 edition of AFR's Focal Point:
Federer was talking to American Family Association host Brian Fischer, on Fischer’s “Focal Point” program, when he mentioned the age old “October surprise” caveat of American politics, a term brought to life by an unproven conspiracy theory that accused the Reagan campaign for conspiring with Iran to help defeat President Jimmy Carter. But in Federer’s mind, it may be much more severe than just the resolution of a hostage negotiation.
He went on to explain how the genocidal Soviet leader put down his own version of the tea party and went on to kill millions of his own people. “And so, this is a strategy. And I think, would this happen? I don’t know. If you can vote to kill innocent babies, what can’t you justify?”
Federer almost became a U.S. Congressman from Missouri, but he was twice defeated by former Rep. Dick Gephardt (R-MO), losing his last race in 2000 by a margin of 57.8 percent to 39.7 percent.

That's only part of Federer's extremism and history revisionism, much like David Barton.
