Is there any limit to the hatred liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy is willing to express on the air about conservatives?
Have we as a nation really degraded to a point that it's acceptable to verbalize over the airwaves one's hope that a fellow American dies?
Such questions naturally arise when one hears the kind of unhinged invective that came out of Malloy's mouth on Friday after it was announced that former Vice President Dick Cheney was back in the hospital with heart troubles.
As a courtesy to our readers, the audio and partial transcript of this abomination have been intentionally placed after the break due to the despicable nature of their content (h/t Radio Equalizer):
MIKE MALLOY: Cheney has had five heart attacks, and history of heart trouble. Well, I guess they're one and the same. The cause of his latest health problem is not clear. I think I know, but (long pause) he's done too much cannibalism, drunk too many cups of blood! Cheney's in the hospital. Ah, the first good news all day.
Malloy then read an e-mail from a caller asking, "What will it make him to lie still and actually die? He has more lives than a cat. I'm beginning to believe he really does need a stake through the heart."
After finishing this disgusting letter and laughing, Malloy continued:
MALLOY: No, I'm not going to feel anything but intense gratitude that this miserable bastard has stepped off this earthly coil! Really! And I'm sure on a much lesser scale when I die, there will probably be some of you right-wing flip tops who will feel the same way - I frankly don't give a damn!
But no - Cheney is responsible. Cheney is a murderer. He's a killer. He's a torturer. He is evil personified! He is a walking mass of horror and when he's gone, this planet will be cleaner!
Honestly, what causes all this hatred from folks on the left?
Conservative talkers might dislike President Obama and Vice President Biden, but they don't go on the air hoping our political leaders die.
Makes you wonder when the Department of Homeland Security is going to issue a warning about all this hate-speech on the left inciting acts of violence from domestic terrorists, although I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that report.
Now please excuse me - I have to wash my hands and keyboard of this detritus.
