This is an URGENT ALERT to all Truth Squad, Anti-Hate Brigade, Hate Monitors Network, and other Peace and Freedom questers.
The latest news is that Rethuglican Michael Smerconish might take the place of the disgraced, hyper-conservative, racist, misogynist, xenophobic, anti-human hater Don Imus.
Standing in solidarity with our comrades from Media Matters (mediamatters.org/items/200704200003), we urge you to keep Smerconish's brand of hatred and obscenity off the airwaves. They highlight some of his misdeeds against The Truth:
Substituting for host Bill O'Reilly on the April 4, 2006, broadcast of The Radio Factor, Smerconish repeatedly discussed "the sissification of America," claiming that political correctness has made the United States "a nation of sissies." Smerconish also claimed, several times, that this "sissification" and "limp-wristedness" is "compromising our ability to win the war on terror."
Although MMFA doesn't provide any analysis (that will presumably be forthcoming after they receive yet more indirect funds from George Soros) presumably they're pointing out that this is an anti-gay remark, since presumably they believe that "gay" and "sissy" are synonyms. And, of course, this is also a slap against the only ideology that keeps the U.S. moving forward: political correctness. Any slap against PC is a slap against us all.
On the April 10, 2006, edition of Scarborough Country, Smerconish suggested that "maybe law enforcement ought to step in" at pro-immigration demonstrations and consider "gathering ... up" illegal immigrants. Smerconish wondered why there was "zero discussion" of "gathering them up" at the demonstrations, when "[a]ll I keep hearing is how would we ever find them?" He then suggested that law enforcement officials are being hypocritical by refusing to "gather ... up" illegal immigrants because they would "step in and do something about" a rally of "pot smokers," who "wanted decriminalization" of marijuana, or "scofflaws" with unpaid parking tickets.
Some have said that those marching were foreign citizens who had no right to be here and who were making a show of force in our streets and demanding that we change our laws to suit them. That sort of talk is racist poppycock. No person is illegal, and our liberal beliefs lead us to support full legalization for all. True liberals do not believe in racist "borders". True liberals believe that anyone can come to the U.S. at any time, and to prevent them from doing that is just xenophobia.
Not only that, but Smerconish moderated a debate for the Republicans. And, not only that, but he's appeared on Chris Matthews' show on four dates this Spring (March 1, March 8, March 21, and April 5, and perhaps more; MMFA's monitor was on a field trip for a few days and might have missed one). In startling news, Matthews said, "all my family listens to you."
Smerconish must be stopped! Contact your Squad Leader immediately and Help Stop the Hate!
