During a May 28 broadcast, hosts Arnie States and Rob Williams of KRXQ, Sacramento, began talking about the California Supreme Court ruling concerning Proposition 8, (banning same-sex marriage). States then said, "If my son, God forbid, if my son put on a pair of high heels, I would probably hit him with one of my shoes. I would throw a shoe at him."
Williams said, "They are freaks. They are abnormal. Not because they're girls trapped in boys bodies, but because they have a mental disorder that needs to be somehow gotten out of them." He also said he would tell a boy he was "a little idiot" if he wanted to wear a dress.
Bank of America, Verizon, Chipotle, Nissan Motor Co. and Carl's Jr. restaurants then pulled their advertising from the radio station.
According to a report in The Sacramento Bee, States later said he never advocated abuse and his comments were meant only as a joke. He didn't do anything wrong.
I agree - he didn't do anything wrong. Parents have a right to teach their children according to what they feel is right or wrong, and whether the libs like it or not, most Americans understand that boys are boys and girls are girls. If, despite a life time of having been gently taught right and wrong, my son wanted to wear a dress or high heals, I'd call him a little idiot as well. (in a loving voice, of course.)
I'm tired of how ridiculous this country has gotten. Most Americans feel the same way. The passing of Proposition 8 is proof.
So much for Freedom of speech, thought, and even opinion. All that is fine and good for those that want to swear on TV during prime time, make rude sexual jokes, disparage the WASP's, and even sell male "enhancement" garbage on TV while our children are watching. (You want to know what offensive is? Those commercials are offensive. But who cares what a conservative thinks is offensive?)
Just try to tell the liberals in California that you don't want their world view taught to your children at a public school. You are immediately labeled a kook. When a conservative speaks up, they get ravaged and called every rotten thing in the book. And in some areas of the country, they even get harassed by picketers and crank callers.
Bank of America, Chipotle, Nissan Motor Co. and Carl's Jr. restaurants, the supporters of this kind of behavior, will be places to avoid from now on.
