Voices of Hatred
THE CONSERVATIVES on radio have found once again the zenith of all human evil. "LIBERALS" they scream during their tirades which are often incoherent and always rambling. The radio Conservatives blame "Liberals" and "the Left" for everything from terrorism to the fall of the Roman Empire.
The Conservatives talkers on radio are professional hate peddlers, wrapping their bigotry and racism in the American flag. When these right wing extremists are not busy throwing mud at homeless people, environmentalists and war protesters, they are launching attacks against Muslims and Islam - attacks so venomous that a king cobra would be envious. These attacks by the hate radio community ("conservatives") are based on nothing more than hatred, US government propaganda, and ethnic stereotyping.
The format for the Conservative yapper is the same from coast to coast promoting antimuslim, antiPalestinian rhetoric.
Who are these people who make a living supporting rogue cops and racial profiling? Short list, nationally syndicated: Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Michael Reagan, Bill O'Reilly.
On the local stations, corporate stooges are well represented, beginning with Lars "Joe McCarthy" Larson who everytime he opens his mouth on the air he exposes just how much he does not know and how little he understands how the world works. But Mr. Larson is
by no means alone. He is joined by fellow hate mongers: Gregg Clapper 3-6 pm, 620AM; Victor Boc 5-8 pm, 860AM; and the newest addition to the hate radio community: Stacy Taylor 6-9 am, 620AM.
Reactionary and Disgusting
One thing most can agree on is these conservative windbags all have one thing in common. Their positions on almost every issue foreign and domestic are politically reactionary and morally disgusting - especially the way the conservative supports the murder of children in Afghanistan (war on terrorism) and Iraq (Gulf War and sanctions. Moreover the radio conservative supports with vigor Us foreign policy that consists mostly of murder, starvation, torture, and oppression carried out by proxy forces and vicious puppet regimes that are financed and supported by US tax dollars with the objective of allowing US multinational corporations like ENRON, Halliburton. and UNOCAL, to loot and pillage the poor countries.
When these Conservatives claptraps are challenged on their positions - which is almost never - the conservative either denies the concept that US bombs are killing children or tries to justify it with a cynical brand of moralism: for example "They started it."
The radio Conservatives come from a skewed perspective. They are quick to condemn countries in the Arab world which are ruled by brutal dictators and undemocratic principles. However they always fail to mention the fact that the US government supports these dictators in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan when assessing the behavior of the US, such as killing civilians in air strikes, their moral compasses seem to jam.
Orwellian Homeland Security
It is no surprise radio Conservatives support with vigor the Bush Administration's Orwellian Homeland Security agency which seems to be a marriage of McCartyism and fascism. The radio Conservatives beam with pride as the domestic spies are unleashed by US government to invade our libraries, universities, churches, synagogues, mosques and even our homes if Big Brother John Ashcroft deems it "necessary".
I refuse to join this campaign of blind nationalism led by stooges of the right wing radio who support George Bush and his corrupt criminal regime.
I urge you to join in protest by boycotting corporate sponsors, writing letters to the FCC to demand balance, reporting individual hosts for hate crimes that may include inciting violence against ethnic minorities like Muslims and Latinos; or just pick up the phone and tell them you disagree. But one thing is clear: these antisocial, war mongering racists must be challenged on the hate they preach.
