Directly following the tragic death of Katherine Sykes, the mother of the Wisconsin conservative radio talk show host and blogger Charlie Sykes, liberal talk show host Micheal McGee, Sr. has come out with this statement, live on his radio show (via Channel 12):
“Mother Sykes, she dead. To me it’s the vengeance of God. I ain’t got
no tears. Matter of fact a woman that would have a fool like that
deserve whatever is coming her. She raised a sure enough idiot,” McGee
said on his radio show. “My instincts say Charlie Sykes killed his
momma, cuz she live out in this big palace in Mequon all isolated. He
got tired of waiting for her money.”
Where is the outrage? Only one small local media outlet, Channel 12, and a number of blogs (Badger Blogger, Marquette Warrior, Michelle Malkin and Gop3.com) have covered it. If this story was reversed, and a conservative said this about McGee's mother, the entire national media along with Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be on the scene. The article on Channel 12 has indicated that McGee's next show will not air but subsequent shows are not in jeopardy yet. Without public outcry, this type of double standard will continue.
Update (13:08 | Matthew Sheffield). Badger Blogger has an MP3 of McGee's hate-filled rant.
