Remember the incredibly bigoted and hate-filled on air statements of "Gunny Bob" Newman?

Progress Now has compiled a list of Newman's advertisers so that you may express your distaste for his advocation of stripping away civil liberties from US citizens on the basis of their ethnic/religious background. Or you can sign their "Don't Pay For Hate" petition. For those of you ready to cry "censorship", let's be clear: No one is stopping him from saying what he wants to say, but he should be prepared to deal with the consequences of that kind of speech too. NO ONE is entitled to use public airwaves to perpetuate hate and bigotry.
