Thank you for this piece on “Shock Jock” whom most of the American people are not all that familiar with. I am totally outraged at the level and degree of hate speech that is being spewed by the rightwing shock jocks toward the left or liberals in America today. There is a certain irony that Michael Reagan the son of President Reagan who is the great-grand father of the modern day conservative religious right movement can make such threats of death over the public air waves and not be held liable. MICHAEL REAGAN: "Take them out and shoot them. They are traitors to this country, and shoot them. But anybody who would do that doesn't deserve to live. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that's what they are, and you shoot them dead. I'll pay for the bullet."
Michael Reagan, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Glenn Beck as well as a host of other shock jock should be charge with high crime and no misdemeanors. They should be prosecuted to the fullest existent of the law, Rush Limbaugh for his "Operation Chaos”. These are the people that are the real threat to America freedom and security. The Reagan conservative’s revolution has moved the pendulum in the United States so far to the right. It makes many mainstream American centrists look like the so called loony lefties that the Conservatives love to bash.
As our nation and the global economy and political system goes down the tube, our nations airwaves and cable are filled with mostly recycled garbage with the exception of shows such as your and “Democracy Now” and others that are on PBS and NPR. It is time for the people in the center to stand-up and be heard. David
