Mike Malloy Calls For Violence Against Matt Drudge
This Time, Libtalker Calls For Drudge's Neck
*** NEW: HUCKABEE VS RUSH? ***
Crazed libtalker Mike Malloy is at it again, but this time his on- air "violence fantasy" has a new target: Internet kingpin Matt Drudge.
After telling listeners during Tuesday night's program that he's recently been leaning toward supporting John Edwards, Malloy was informed of the Drudge headline and link to the National Enquirer's story about the Democrat presidential candidate's alleged "love child". His response:
MALLOY: Drudge? Aw, Drudge, somebody ought to wrap a strong Republican entrail around his neck and hoist him up about six feet in the air and watch him bounce.
After the reaction to his last "violence fantasy", one which was targeted at White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, one would think Malloy might have learned his lesson. While some could believe he's looking for attention, because he was only made aware of the Edwards "love child" story moments before, this couldn't have been planned.
Via YouTube, see for yourself:
Note how Malloy catches himself afterward, clearly recognizing that your Radio Equalizer would be listening. At least he was right about one thing.
Some liberal hosts are looking for much- needed public attention and love to be attacked by conservatives. That occasionally leads to somewhat outrageous statements made to serve that purpose.
But Malloy is clearly not one of those people: these are real feelings sent out over the airwaves. He really doesn't seem to recognize how nutty his thoughts sound when blurted out for all to hear. If you had similar violent thoughts, wouldn't you keep them to yourself?
Again, the questions are clear: should a talk show host be able to advocate violence against others on the airwaves? If it were to motivate others to take action against Malloy's targets, would he be held responsible? Could a conservative host get away with this kind of rhetoric?
Beyond that, why do "progressives" support and desire such harmful actions against their political opponents? In his previous outburst against Perino, liberals generally pretended it didn't happen, rather than address his comments. Why is it so hard to denounce extremism coming from one's own side of the political fence?
