I hold talk radio hate mongers fully responsible in case

by Faramarz_Fateh

I don't know anything about Obama other than what I have seen on TV or read in the papers or the internet. But I really like him. There are many reasons why. But the main reason is that he has been able to inspire hope and positivity (if there is such a word) in 150+ million people in the U.S. (mostly Whites) and billions more worldwide.

That alone is worthy of praise. I realize that Hitler was able to inspire a whole bunch of people too but Obama's inspiration was based on a totally different message.

There is just something about him. Granted if you had put $760,000,000 behind Ron Paul he maybe the president elect now. But very VERY few people are capable of what Obama has done.

In the past 3 days since Obama's election, talk radio hate mongers such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have ratched up the hate rhetoric exponentially. The hate speech is unbelieveable. Even for someone like me.

In a true democracy, voices of descent are not only a right but a necessity. But organized well funded 24/7 hate speech factories are not what the founding fathers of this nation had in mind. White nut job racist red necks in small towns in Texas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, West Virginia and alike are like a bomb with a fuse next to a lit match.

What these hate mongers are doing is to push the match towards this fuse. If God forbid Obama is killed by one of these white morons, we as a nation should hold Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and Clear Channel responsilbe for it.

Are you with me? Start taking action against hate radio. Lets do something to improve our nation.

by Anonymous 3 (not verified) on

He was once arrested for forging a prescription or driving under influence.He drug habit has gotten so bad that it has effected his hearing and he has to wear an implant in his ear.So do not mind what he says just change the station.I used to listen to his show but I got tired of his hate mongering and I no longer listen to his show.People eventually are going to get tired of his show too and stop listening to him .People who want peace won't listen to him.

Rush Limbaugh denies that Ahmadinejad is not Supreme Leader

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on



I heard a clip of him doing his gush fest for Sarah Palin after the debate with Joe Biden, and he laughed at Joe Biden for saying that Ahmadinejad is not the person in charge of nuclear issues in Iran and that the structure of Iran renders him powerless in that arena.

Rush is an idiot and any degree of deep knowledge obliterates him. He tells his listeners to NOT listen to the news so that he can filter it and tell them about it. You have to be missing chunks of your brain to take someone like that seriously. 


Thanks Sam

I wouldn't put it past them. Even if true, they won't attempt it before a while. There is the well funded civil national security force to be formed first, remember? I don't know, has this progressive-version-of-brown-shirts air about it, but then again so what? If formed, it will certainly be used only to eradicate "hate". Which is a good thing, right? Everything is going to be just fine.

Can someone tell my why they even care?

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

For 30 years, Iranians have had this regime, suffered under it, and no one said a damn word. Hannity and Limbaugh said nothing. Now they have an enemy to rally their listeners against since the President was REpublican and everyone has lost faith in the war. Iran is a new pinata. THose people don't care one bit. They just listen to those dumb Ahmadinejad quotes and think Israel gives a damn about them and they decry Iran. 

Iran could have had a bomb or 4 bombs and nothing would be different. These talk radio hosts are a big waste of time. They are worse than MTV because at least MTV supports the artists and creative spirits or hot people. Rush and Hannity are two fat white guys with nothing better to do. I've met janitors, waiters and phone operators with more sense than those dunces. 


Mr. Faramarz, there's a nasty conspiracy

Sean Hannity, Rush and Michael Savage are all supporters of this web site:


They have asked the listeners to visit the site.

Your point well taken but I think such risks were significantly higher before the election.

The degree of security and secret service protection that Mr. Obama enjoyed as a candidate would pale compared to what he will recieve as a president. If he was safe in open crowds of 100,000+, the risk will be significanly less now that he is president.

There is no need to impair constitution. These kinds of talks will die down with time.

It's cheap and crappy quality. But someone's gotta eat it!

I am ok with differing views. I'm not ok with lie, rumor andhate

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

That is all Rush and Sean do. they have to make money, but what they do is unethica. It's not just ANOTHER VIEW. There are serious conservatives, but Rush isn't one and he doesn't make the case for conservatism. He makes the case for jackassery. So personally, I'd like him to stay. And the Fairness Doctrine is great. It will win over lots of conservatives..... kind of like an englightenment!! Rush's days are numbered anyway. 

He's a fatass who smokes and eats beef just to say he eats beef and hates environmentalists. He's more wacko and the wackos he preaches against.

You are right, cut and pasting the crap from newsmax is easier than writing it! :-)

PS. The reason I read that crap is to remind myself that how far they are from reality, they must be on crack or receiving ultra-right wing Neo-Con welfare check$.


change the station

by MRX1 (not verified) on

Don't like a particular radio station? it's easy switch to another station. no one is forcing you to listen to it.personaly I found limbaugh boring to listen to. Be that as it may be, talk radio is the only free medium that we can rely on now and days.

As for BO, don't worry about him. he is raised by the corrupt 'daily' machine of chicago among charlatans and thugs, unless you think his raise to the top was all accident. now that is change that we can believe in!

Obama's fascist/leftist agenda & Cult of zombies

by samsam1111 on

Neither a Republican nor Democrat , but


Barack Obama has a stunning lack of tolerance for free speech. And one thing Americans can expect from an Obama administration, and a Democratic-controlled Congress, is a legislative attempt to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine (bill put forward by leftist Democrats), which will limit free speech and diminish the conservative influence on talk radio. They want to use the bill to sue the hell outa opposing views to exterminate opposition, Mullah style. Democrat  Bill Ruder, said, “We had a massive strategy to use the ‘Fairness Doctrine’ to challenge and harass the right-wing broadcasters and hoped the challenge would be so costly to them that they would be inhibited and decide it was too expensive to continue." .


; After seeing a dip in the polls in September, the Obama campaign dispatched lawyers to force prosecutors and law enforcement officials in Missouri to act as “truth squads” to target anyone who runs ads on TV or radio critical of Obama.

When Chicago radio station WGN scheduled journalist Stanley Kurtz to talk about Obama’s ties to Ayers, the Obama campaign recruited 100,000 supporters to act in a cult-like manner and besiege the station with protests.

When “Joe the plumber” questioned Obama about his plan to raise taxes on small businesses, Obama supporters sought to destroy Joe and publicly embarrass him by digging through his tax files, work history, and personal life. Was this a warning to average Americans not to ask questions?

Obama forces also tried to hush a national organization that ran TV and radio ads attacking the candidate’s position on an issue. In that instance, Obama’s general counsel fired off a letter threatening the licenses of stations that didn’t pull the ad “for the sake of FCC licensing and the public interest.”

When KDKA (Pittsburgh, Pa.) talk-radio host Kevin Miller gave air-time to guests who were critical of Obama, his producer reprimanded him on the air and read a statement from CBS accusing Miller of unfair bias against Obama. The producer then offered Obama his own three-hour segment to run in place of Miller’s time slot.

Would you be kind enough to give example of this hate speech? While it is widely known that neither Rush Limbaugh (or as he is known by Marge Simpson, as "He Who is a Pain in His Own Ass") and Sean Hannity did not believe Barack Obama to be the better candidate, I do not see where they are mongers of hate against him. His politics, yes.

Political campaigns have become more incendiary because of one thing: ratings. TV and radio need to sell advertising time and they command higher rates when they have higher ratings. It's a very ugly reality.

I also am curious to know if all of the negative things said by the likes of Keith Olbermann, whose anti-GOP commentary borders on vitriolic were to light a fuse to incite some nutjob of any color to cause harm to a conservative poiltical figure, would you seek to hold the liberal commentator accountable with the same zeal that you wish to see for Limbaugh or Hannity?

I find it curious that there are those who espouse liberal views and proclaim themselves to be tolerant, yet cannot accept the fact that there are differing views out there.

IRANdokht, I normally don't listen to Limbaugh, because AM radio static gives me a headache. But I listened to him on Wednesday and did not have any hateful rhetoric towards Obama. All of his anger was directed towards the McCain campaign staff who he said failed miserably where the Obama staff was very successful. He actually said that this may prove to be a goodthing to happen to the GOP, because it will force them to regroup and reorganize. He said as the Democrats were clear with their message, the GOP was not and that contributed to the results.

I was pretty surprised by how analytical it was without the usual anti-liberal rhetoric.


Leave FREE SPEECH alone, we live in a democracy

by cyrusrasti on

It's one thing to say how much you hate this show or that show.  You say you want to do something about talk radio? Well don't listen to it! We have something in this great country of ours called FREE SPEECH. FREE SPEECH is guaranteed in our constitution, we do not live in Iran or Saudia Arabia where dissent gets crushed by the state. What the hell is the matter with you? You see what is happening in our country of origin and you want to silence people who have every right to say what they want as much as you or I or anyone else in this country.  What about hate speech coming from a "holy" man with a long beard and a dirty night shirt? Give me a frickin break! P.S. Go STEELERS!


It is combination of corporate media AND miuse of free speech

by Al Sefati (not verified) on

First Amendment has been misunderstood by many. They can push their hate agenda forward and hide behind first amendment. And they have wealth of corporations behind them.

And since media is use to organize and control masses their message usually comes with awful consequences.

But considering US laws and culture there is very little that can be done about it. Our sole job is to educate others. Most people listening to right wing shows are under educated citizens so one thing President Elect Obama can do is that when he comes to office to make education among his first priority.

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

You should be glad for Rush Limbaugh for this reason

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

Rush limbaugh's NUMBER ONE priority is making money. He will say anything no matter how offensive and stupid to get us to listen and be happy or outraged.

By behaving that way, he wins a few "converts" but mostly, he makes it harder for Republicans to win elections and adapt to mainstream America.  

He is a hypocritical coward who got a free pass out of Vietnam because of a hemroid. I'm not joking. 

BUt you're right, the vote would not have been split if the fear and hate about Obama and his family wasn't spread by these low-lives. 


I know...

by Reza K. (not verified) on

Do what IRANdokht does...don't tune in!

I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh all the time. I didn't agreee with 90% of what he was saying, but that's what I like to do: Listening to dissent.

I don't remember him ever advocating "hate". Do you call it hate, because you don't agree with it, or can you come up with a concrete example of a 'hateful speech' made by him, or any of these people?


Not too many will be with

by TheMrs on

Not too many will be with you. Some are too tired and the rest are recovering from symptoms of election follow up withdrawal. Get over it, he won, it's finished.

Don't forget, those radio show hosts represent something like 47% of the population!

Try tunning into Howard Stern (he's on satellite now) or the Love line. Again, I've said this before, hers mikhori sekteh mikoni.

Dear Mr Fateh

by IRANdokht on

I do not have the tolerance to actually tune into those talk stations and suffer through those stupid comments of Rush Limbaugh and the likes of him, but I take your word and believe that they have raised it a few notches because I am sure they would not accept people's vote gracefully.

Please let us know what you have in mind and where you think we should submit the complaints. I'll sign up because what you described has been a source of anxiety for me since Mrs Clinton was kind enough to suggest it a while ago!
