Just when you thought the pathology from Mike Malloy couldn't get more alarming, the man outdoes himself again.
A left-winger so beyond the pale he was once fired by the ardent redistributionists at Air America Radio, Malloy has carved out a niche for himself as the radio host most likely to self-immolate from his own bile. (audio clip after page break)
Libtalker Mike Malloy is at it again.
Last Wednesday he actually said on the air, "This Limbaugh, this is one of the most vile human beings ever to live! If Limbaugh had the power, he would open gas chambers! If Limbaugh had the power, he would line people up against the wall and execute them...The only thing he sees in children is sex partners!" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Left-wing Radio Host Who Fantasized About Beheaded Tea Party Members Offended by ‘Gun Appreciation Day’
Leftist radio host Mike Malloy is aghast at the notion of a "Gun Appreciation Day" to be celebrated by 2nd Amendment supporters on January 19 this year. On his January 14 radio program, Malloy attacked the "right wingers who want to see blood in the streets, the Hannitys, the Limbaughs, they want the killing to start. Glenn Beck would like nothing more!"
A few minutes later, Malloy attacked the "crazy bastards" behind Gun Appreciation Day. "I know, let's have Bomb Appreciation Day.... How do you do something like this?!" Of course, Malloy has repeatedly fantasized about the violent death or maiming of those with whom he disagrees politically or religiously. Here are just a few examples:
On his November 26 program, left-wing radio host Mike Malloy, whose sick rants we here at NewsBusters have noted from time to time, fantasized about how he wished there were an angel of death that would sweep down across the fruited plain and destroy "tea baggers," but which he meant Tea Party conservatives.
This was just one example in the latest batch of venom being spewed from left-wing radio hosts that our friend Brian Maloney of the Radio Equalizer blog discussed on the Nov. 28 edition of Hannity. You can watch the full segment below:
Left-wing radio host Mike Malloy keeps reaching for new lows in depraved discourse.
Those familiar with Malloy from his numerous appearances at NewsBusters over the years are aware of his pathological obsession with violence, especially toward those who don't share his totalitarian politics. (h/t for audio, Brian Maloney at mrctv.org).
Predictably, left-wing radio talker Mike Malloy blames the Family Research Council for being targeted by a pro-gay rights activist who allegedly opened fire at their headquarters and wounded a security guard.
What is surprising about Malloy's rant, even to those of us familiar with this most vampiric of radio hosts, is its jaw-dropped toxicity -- an American version of Radio Rwanda, circa 1994. (Audio clip after page break) --
Just imagine the uproar there'd be if a conservative radio talk show host pretended to talk to the devil to find out how a recently deceased liberal activist is doing in Hell.
Now contrast that with the virtual media silence there's been since liberal radio host Mike Malloy acted as if he was on a phone call with Satan to learn how conservative activist Andrew Breitbart is faring in Hades.That incident took place on Tuesday during Malloy's program, which is heard in 13 markets across the nation and Sirius/XM radio. [Radio Equalizer's YouTube clip of this embedded below page break]
“Hey, Satan,” the talk show host began. “Hello, down in Hell! What's up?
“Really?” he continued. “Yeah, it’s hot up here, too.
“I was just reading something by someone named Andy—not the Andy that you’ve got down there,” Malloy stated, obviously referring to Breitbart. “I just want to ask you, how’s Andy doing?
“Really?” he asked. “How many times did he do that?And then you did what to him?”
Malloy pretended to react in horror about some “starfish thing,” apparently another torture Breitbart is supposed to be receiving in Hell.
“Well, that’s to be expected,” the liberal host added. “That’s pretty painful.
“No, you’ll never see me down there, pal,” Mallow stated, “because I know you don’t exist.”
Before he "hung up," the host pretended to hear that Breitbart wanted to know what was happening back on Earth.
Malloy said to tell the conservative that “Planned Parenthood is still operating” and that “ACORN is making a comeback.”
“That’ll frost his ass, in a manner of speaking,” the liberal radio host concluded.
This isn't the first time Malloy -- a strident, outspoken and spiteful atheist -- has gone after the deceased conservative activist. When Breitbart passed away on March 1 due to heart failure, the liberal seethed with malicious rage: "Roast in hell, you son of a bitch Breitbart—I mean seriously, you thug punk!"
And the liberal talker has turned his verbal venom on many other Republicans, including former President George W. Bush, whom he said was “responsible for many more deaths that Osama bin Laden.”
Another of Malloy's favorite targets is former Vice President Dick Cheney, whom he outrageously claimedwas responsible for the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and advised his daughter Liz that “her time would be better served preparing for his funeral.”
However, the liberal host went too far when he ridiculed tornado victims in the Midwest on March 2:
Their God, if this is the way they want to look at it, keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement, in Alabama, in Mississippi, Arkansas, Georgia and Oklahoma—you know, the Bible Belt...where they ain’t gonna let no g*dd*mn science get in the way, it says in the Bible, blah blah blah, so according to their way of thinking, y’know, God with his omnipotent thumb, and so far tonight, has smashed so far 20 people on Highway 12, or whatever the hell highway they live next to.
That was too much even for Mike Malloy, who released a statement a few days later:
I sincerely apologize for the inflammatory language that I used, and for the anger and pain that came as a result of my comments.
After backtracking that his remarks had been taken out of context, he noted: “I have nothing but the most heartfelt sympathy for those families who were devastated by those tragic storms.”
“I made a mistake, I was wrong, and I will not let it happen again,” he concluded.
According to Brian Maloney of the Radio Equalizer website, Malloy's comments on Tuesday show that he's unable to keep that promise:
In the new "progressive" mindset, it's not enough for political enemies to merely drop dead, it's also important to make sure they're burning in Hell.
Who knew they believed in such concepts?
“The liberal movement is nastier than ever,” Maloney added after stating that Malloy is “certifiably nuts.”
Natural disasters have a way of bringing out the worst on the Left. Flooding in Florida and wildfires in Colorado “inspired” nutty talk-show host Mike Malloy and the Daily Kos to rant about how conservatives in these states deserve these disasters because they’re anti-government, and too religious to boot.
Malloy teased from his atheist worldview, “Could that be, you know, Jesus or God saying hey, you know, we're sick of you right-wingers. We're sick of you religious nuts. We're gonna -- we're gonna flood you, we're gonna burn you?” Malloy mused maybe God was punishing the Christians at the Air Force Academy:
Does anyone pay any attention to the irony of all this, the Air Force Academy the most Christer organization in the U.S. military? This is the organization, the U.S. military academy that teaches their young pilots in training or whatever they're going to be in the Air Force -- mechanics, pilots, who knows -- that Muslims are of Satan and they are on a crusade and a mission? Right? So, if any of that is true, I guess Jesus or God heard that and decided, uh, naah, I don't like what you guys are doing and started throwing fireballs! Could that be -- could that be possible?
Malloy compared the fires (with a Reverend Wright echo) to Dresden and Tokyo, where our armed forces “incinerated” Germans and Japanese. Then came Florida:
Meanwhile in a real conservative, just nasty conservatism – uh, north Central Florida – BOOM! Being flooded out. Could that be, you know, Jesus or God saying hey, you know, we're sick of you right-wingers. We're sick of you religious nuts. We're gonna -- we're gonna flood you, we're gonna burn you? I mean, isn't this what the right wing Christians usually say? When somebody says - well, he, you know, was he saved before the fireball hit him? He wasn't? Hmm, must be God - you know, God work in strange ways his wonders to reveal, heh-heh.
Mike also brought up recent tornadoes in the “Bible Belt” Midwest and explained that the believers talk of an angry Old Testament God and his vengeance:
This is a really, belligerent, nasty, hate-filled, saturated-with-drunken-power God! So could it be? Is it possible? Do you suppose within the realm of religious insanity that this God decided to burn the living hell out of Colorado and flood the living hell out of North Florida and smash the central United States with tornadoes?...
What I just said is nonsense, utter nonsense. The fires are burning because nobody paid any attention to global warming. The fires are burning because the residents of the state of Colorado decided, 'we're not going to pay no goddamn taxes! Same thing for the people in north central Florida. 'We don't want no flood control! We don't want anything! Get outta here, government!' That's the cause.
In a similar vein at the Daily Kos, the blogger “Greendem” wrote a post headlined “Colorado Springs, Rescuing Conservative Paradise.”
As the flames approach the VERY conservative city of Colorado Springs we are reminded that this is one of the proud beachheads the Tea Party movement.
The Wall Street Journal says it's "Taking Small Government to the Extreme." The town is strapped for cash, but voters have rejected a tax increase, urging the government to slash services instead. Letters to the town council and local newspapers are pouring in, demanding that community centers be closed, the police department shrunk, and city-owned utilities sold off....
Perhaps as disaster is about to strike their city, these folks may wish there was a little more government around.
Thankfully, President Obama is traveling there soon. He is bringing the full force of the government to help this community.
They should thank the generous US taxpayer for coming to their rescue.
In a rural area where “The economy sucks when it’s good,” natural gas drilling could have gone a long way. Could have, until environmental extremists and regulators got in the way.
That’s what happened in Wayne County, Pa., just a few years ago when “corporations offered struggling farmers lucrative leases for mineral rights” but a documentary filmmaker and government prevented the drilling, according to a June 7, 2012 story from Bloomberg Businessweek magazine.
“Land that sold for $2,000 to $3,000 an acre in 2004 was going for as much as $10,000 an acre by 2009,” the article stated. That was all put on hiatus thanks to a fear of pollution spread by a anti-fracking neighbor/filmmaker Josh Fox and eco-groups that pressured the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to institute a drilling moratorium.
That interstate commission blocked struggling farmers from reaping the benefits of the natural gas boom which was “the biggest thing ever happened around here, in my lifetime at least,” according to [Northern Wayne Property Owners] Alliance member Bob Rutledge. Rutledge is “a dairy and beef farmer whose family has been in Wayne for 170 years.” He slammed the DRBC saying the commission “isn’t writing me a check. They’re just basically saying ‘screw you’.”
According to the magazine, DRBC’s decision was influenced in part by local Wayne county filmmaker Josh Fox, who made the anti-fracking film “Gasland” and supporters who played up the fear of environmentalists. Despite the fear spread by Fox and other anti-fracking activists, researchers from the University of Texas at Austin have concluded that “there is no evidence” of polluted drinking water caused by fracking. Even EPA administrator Lisa Jackson has told the Ithaca Journal, “We have absolutely no indication now that drinking water is at risk.”
“Gasland” is “packed with major errors, half truths, distortions, and exaggerations,” according to Kathleen Hartnett White, director of the Armstrong Center for Energy & the Environment at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. That film famously highlighted water from a tap being set on fire, but according to Phelim McAleer, another filmmaker, flammable water is nothing new and was not a result of fracking.
Businessweek reported that “drilling is not officially dead in Wayne county,” since DRBC had scheduled a hearing on in November 2011. But it was cancelled and has yet to be rescheduled.
The Businessweek story of frustrated farmers and people who would have been better off economically if the DRBC had not stopped companies from drilling for natural gas is a rare one in the mainstream media. The anti-fracking view is more typically promoted by the liberal news media.
In May 2011, The New York Times had to correct its claim that there were “numerous” cases of water pollution from fracking. They were forced to admit “There are few documented cases, not numerous ones.” Left-wing radio host Mike Malloy outrageously claimed (without evidence) that fracking had killed “thousands of Americans,” while liberal radio host Thom Hartmann claimed fracking had caused an earthquake.
