    I don't listen to Rush. I didn't realize that he was a rapper.

    Personally I like to listen to Mike Savage... Thou he has hard-liner additudes about politics and the state of affairs in America.. He is still entitled to his First Amendment rights... and while it may in some regards constitute slander for some of the conservative talk shows, it should be handed like any other case.

    Mind you sites like the one shown are in league with an agenda.. to ban contraversal talk radio from being aired.

    Disagree with them.. but do not take away their rights to be on the air...

    FYI... don't we have bigger fish to fry anyways then waste our time worrying about the conversative wing considering the huge democratic swing that just swept the U.S.A. ?!?!?

    Unless Conservative radio hosts are actually telling people to go out and kill liberals, there's nothing legal to be done - that's free speech. This falls into the same category as banning violent video games or music with violent lyrics - it blames a (probably non-violent) person for the violence of someone who listened to them and took things too far.

    There are three other avenues to legal restrictions.

    The first is boycott - make it clear to the radio station that you don't approve of their show and will not listen to it. Organize others to boycott it. Freedom of speech isn't the same thing as "freedom to have a radio show" - if enough pressure is put on the radio station by individual citizens they'll remove the show of their own volition, as a matter of ratings and profits.

    The second is rebuttal - launching your own program, whether it be a radio show, blog, or whatever - that espouses an opposite opinion and rebutts theirs. If it is done well enough, you can potentially sway the opinions of people who otherwise look to that sort of thing for guidance in life.

    The third is following - basically, finding someone who is already doing one of the first two and support them wholeheartedly.

    These types of issues need to be dealt with in the private sphere. Government only knows how to "force" things, through weight of the law. Out here, we can "encourage" easier - and that is a far better method.

    well said Vyo... I would say the same for progressive radio talk shows if they had the same agenda of agressive purusance of social issues...

    The fact remains.. they have the right.. and to deny them that would remove the very first amendment our founding fathers enacted

    And what are the chances that some minority would come back with 15 of his friends and gang up on one person? Then and today.

    Shaman, no. It wouldn't be different at all. The point here is that you take a high road that isn't as pure as you want to pretend it is. Minorities have been just as nasty to whites, and attempt to play a pity card any time possible. If you want to keep jabbing about poor treatment, then accept culpability as well or it just sounds like a broken record that has been playing forever.
