AM Radio, wow

  1. Mar 25, 2009 #1
    I accidently got into AM radio mode in my car for the last two days, and I can't figure out how to take it back into FM because there isnt a stupid AM/FM button. I had to have hit some funky combination of buttons to go into AM and now Im stuck. ANYWAYS, I've been stuck with this AM radio for the past few days now.

    WoW.

    This stuff is intense. One bozo is Michael Savage. This guy is a real jerk. He was saying stuff like: "See that, those evil white men with slide rules built the golden gate bridge in the 30s. With just a slide rule, those evil white men (sarcastically)."

    Then there was Sean Hannity talking about how Obama wants to make this country have currency thats part of the world economy (think euros) and how were turning into a socialistic nation. On and on and on hating Obama, these two.

    Now, I don't mind the if republicans disagree, but the tone of what these guys are saying is really to the level of hate speech. It's pretty absurd. Frankly, I'm shocked they have an audience. That scares me.

    They werent just against Obama, they were nasty about it - and I mean nasty. This Savage bozo wouldnt even call him obama, he called him 'chuckles'.

    Who gives a damn? They're on the vastly less-popular AM stations... for a reason.

    I care because the level of hate they spout of should be sensored. It's way way over the line.

    By opening their mouths to breathe fire, they don't really change anybody's mind. They mostly just reinforce what people already think, whether they agree or disagree.

    We had that hook character, it took years to be rid of him, laws on preaching hate are to soft, if it were up to me they would have an island with thier name on it.

    I sometimes think that I get a rather one sided view of America. First the war fiasco with more than half of the population believing that Osama was connected with Iraq, then the Kensas education board voting on what is science and what isn't and now this. Is it really as bad as it appears to me?

    I got good reasons not to like him:

    Yes you are right that he promotes hate.

    He sure sounds like a nut job. If I were a right winger, I would certainly not choose him to represent us. He represents people just like him, nut jobs.
