The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

Mike Malloy Calls For Violence Against Matt Drudge

ANOTHER FANTASY

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?

  • Hey Brian, hasn't it been awhile since CNN had nutcase Malloy on their network? They're probably trying to forget he ever sullied their airwaves with his presence.

  • "should a talk show host be able to advocate violence against others on the airwaves?"

    There are some "radio personalities" from Rwanda on trial before an international human rights tribunal for precisely those activities. The major difference is that here, the general populace is saner than the radio talk show hosts, whereas in Rwanda, the rank-and-file took the idiot shock jocks at their word. But the irresponsible advocacy is pretty much the same.

  • Looks like this pathetic site could use some comments so it looks like people actually visit.

    You ask,"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?"
    Maybe because few liberals actually listen to talk radio as most liberals don't want to hear the echo chamber of talk radio. As for liberal listeners feeling like we should repudiate something an "entertainer" has to say, why should we? Obnoxious and offensive statements have been a staple of conservative radio for 20 years. Rush Limbaugh was calling Chelsea Clinton a dog when she was still a young teen. Ann Coulter has called for the bombing of the NY Times building, Bill O'Reilly has called for terrorists to attack San Francisco, Michael Savage's show is a spasm of hate. The list goes on and on. These statements are far worse and reach far more people then anything Mike Malloy says (Who's even heard of the guy). And seriously, when did conservatives become such whiny pussies? I thought you guys were supposed to be the Daddy party?

  • "I thought you guys were supposed to be the Daddy party?"

    Judging from the relentless parade of busted perverts, child molesters, and bizarrely authoritarian deviants the neocons and conservatives have spawned in recent years, it would seem the term "Daddy" carries a somewhat unusual meaning to them...

  • Incidentally, my post from yesterday seems to have vanished.

    Surprise, surprise.

  • I agree with you about Mr. Malloy. Have you made a similar post about Glenn Beck?
