Now anyone who has followed my posts knows that Glenn, himself, has been known for some outrageous statements, but to an extent he does temper himeself a bit.
Such cannot be said about "Doc." This is a man who has won five Marconi awards. Many of my fellow Twitterers would love to know what the award committee was snorting at the time of nomination.
The reason I am going in to this is what "Doc" said this week about hate crime legislation.
And they will be condemned by thier words. From the July 8 edition of Premiere Radio Network's The Glenn Beck Program:
This from a man whose lisp sounds less from Virginia...and more from Fire Island.
A little education for you, Mr. Thompson:
9.8.08 Norwich, Conn. —
A trial is scheduled to start
today for the former Plainfield man charged with beating a man and dumping his
body into the Shetucket River in Norwich.
Timothy J. Cote, 39, is charged with attempted murder and first-degree
assault in the Sept. 28, 2007, attack of William Uzialko. At 1:39 a.m. that
morning, fishermen at Howard T. Brown Memorial Park heard a splash coming from
the area of the Laurel Hill bridge and saw a man, arms thrashing, float past
their fishing spot.
Responding police discovered a shoeless Uzialko floating in the river,
clinging to a chain behind a dock on the east side of Norwich Harbor. He was
semi-conscious and bleeding from his face and ears, police said.Police
interviewed people sleeping under the viaduct bridge behind the YMCA, a common
place for the homeless to drink and sleep. Cote and Robert Plummer were found
there sleeping. A pair of work books were found, along with blood and drag marks
leading to a wall that drops 30 feet into river. An “executive type desk chair,”
was found in the river directly below the wall.
6.18.09 EUGENE, Ore. -- Police arrested two
roommates in the murder of a homeless man whose bloody body was found not
far from a playground in a city park last month after one of the men allegedly
confessed to a friend who later called police.

stabbed to death on a street in Belfast today.

A 46-year-old man has been arrested, police said. Detectives believe
there may have been a row before the attack at around 2.30am.

been killed in a knife attack in north Belfast.

Shall I go on, Doc? Maybe I should.

6.29.09 NYC --A man visiting a friend on the upper East Side was robbed
pistol-whipped during Gay Pride weekend by a group of hoodlums yelling
anti-gay slurs, the victim and cops said Sunday.
36, said he was set upon by at least three
men on E. 85th St. about 4 a.m.
"Out of nowhere, I'm being
attacked," he said from his bed at New York
Cornell, a nasty gush visible on his forehead.
One of the robbers
called out, "What are you looking at?" and used an
anti-gay epithet, the Boston
07.07.09 ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - For the third time in four
years and the second time in a month a cross-dressing man has been found dead on the streets of Albuquerque.
They are believed to be the victims of what police across America say is a growing hate crime: People born men, dressed as
women, and in all likelihood murdered because of that.
Janice Devereaux, the head of "Transgender New Mexico," believes Albuquerque is seeing that
“I think it's incredibly dangerous,” says Devereaux.
Police aren't sure why someone beat transgender Teri Benally to death last weekend.
Witnesses found Benally, 42, unconscious on Maple Street SE near Coal
Avenue. Benally died at a hospital.
“The individual may have been meeting somebody that they found online,”
Albuquerque Police Department spokesman John Walsh told KRQE News 13.
...and on and on.
We understand, "Doc," that you fancy yourself as a kind of humorist on your dailta afternoon show on WRVA. You do have to admire someone who feels that smashing someone' skull because they wear a dress instead of overalls is hilarious, or that stabbing someone in the back because he has lost everything is side-splitting.
Maybe Mr Thompson should betold exactly how much people appreciate his unique comic stylings.
