MY LETTER TO THE TALK RADIO TITANS
Dear Dr. Savage,
I’ve been a listener of your program ever since your show was syndicated on WOR in New York. I’ve bought all of your books and donated money to your legal fund. I will still listen. I’m doubtful that I’ll ever donate to your fund again and the sole purpose that I’m writing to you today is that I’m slowly losing all respect for talk show hosts like yourself, Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck, Levin and etc.
On your July 15th show, you and a guest presented an unbelievable case against the Barack Obama Health Care plan which, I agree, will be nothing about insuring the uninsured and only about control of the masses. Then you began railing against Republicans, in particular, Sarah Palin.
You read from an article by Ellis Washington which chastises Republicans calling them the GIP (Grand Irrelevant Party) instead of the GOP. Ok, I can take criticism of the GOP and Sarah Palin. But, then you read a quote from Sir Edmund Burke who said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”.
Ironically, you and the other talk show titans are doing just that. You simply sit at your golden microphones day after day and talk yourselves to death and still you do nothing. Again, I respect that you get on the air and present the truth to a population that is bamboozled by lies from the mainstream media on a daily basis. However, I think you and the talk show hosts of America can do more.
Question: What could I do? Answer: A lot.
This health care bill was on the horizon for months. I’ve listened to you threaten to organize a march and stop road traffic in America for issues less critical. Couldn’t you have organized a march on Washington? Couldn’t you or any of the other talk show hosts organized one million people out of your millions of listeners to make a statement that we are not welcoming in the ruination of America?
Instead, you all continued to be good men who do nothing. All you do is give out information and tell us to call our Congressman and Senators in one breath and, in the other, you tell us it’s pointless because we don’t have a representative government. Also, I’m beginning to see NO difference between talk show hosts who hide behind microphones and Congressmen who hide behind their voicemails or secretaries.
Yeah, that’s right. You talk to thousands of unknown callers, most of who you can give a damn about. Most of you don’t even have an office with an assistant to call or even email that, when I send the email, it will be read and not thrown into some spam folder.
As you can see below, I’ve copied all of the major talkers on this letter. I want you to know that this is not so much about you but ALL of you. As a working class, conservative putz, I have no voice and no activists. Afro-Americans have NAACP and Al Sharpton. Latinos have LaRaza. Gays have Act-up, Liberals have Code Stink and Move.On.org who actually use THEIR POWER to create change.
And what do we have? Stugots!
All thanks to powerful influential men like you who do nothing while evil triumphs.
I often dream about a day when all of you so called titans of talk radio would put aside your petty, childish radio wars and come to an agreement that America is in dire straits. But this time you’re going to do something about it. That maybe one or two of you, or dare to dream, all of you would have a come to Jesus moment, band together and fight against the take over of America by stealth communists.
Then I woke up. Ahh, what a burden it is to be a dreamer in such a competitive, ratings obsessed and profit driven world.
Conservative, working class putz
