This is so unbelievably offensive, I got to wonder what it will take to get the FCC to come down on this radio station:

Colorado Media Matters:

Discussing the breakup of an alleged terrorist plot to attack U.S. soldiers at New Jersey's Fort Dix, Newsradio 850 KOA host "Gunny" Bob Newman said on his May 8 show that "every Muslim immigrant to America who holds a green card, a visa, or who is a naturalized citizen [should] be required by law to wear a GPS tracking bracelet at all times," and that the government should "bug their places of work and their residences" and monitor "[a]ll mosques and community centers." Newman added, "If they don't like the idea, or if they refuse, throw their asses out of this country."

Audio and contact names and links available on the CMM site. Considering that Eric Rudolph *, Timothy McVeigh and Chad Castagana are all right wing Christian white men, wouldn't you think Newman would advocate ankle bracelets on all wingnuts males?

*Corrected name

Can you help us out?

For 18 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
