Bob Davis makes me soooo proud to be a Minnesota radio broadcaster.Posted: April 19, 2013 Filed under: "It Seems To Me" | Tags: douchebaggery, radio, wackjobs 3 Comments
A Twin Cities radio host said he would like to tell the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims to “go to hell” for infringing on his gun rights.
Yup. He did.
Bob Davis is the name of this douche-canoe. He was discussing those affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy during last Friday’s segment of his morning show, “Davis and Emmer,” on the Twin Cities’ KTCN- AM 1130. (His co-host, by the way, is former candidate for Minnesota governor Tom Emmer.) The topic focused on how family members of the victims, most of whom were between six and seven years old, have become advocates for gun control. And as Davis whined, these family members are infringing on his constitutional rights.
That’s right. He said it:
I have something I want to say to the victims of Newtown, or any other shooting. I don’t care if it’s here in Minneapolis or anyplace else. Just because a bad thing happened to you doesn’t mean that you get to put a king in charge of my life. I’m sorry that you suffered a tragedy, but you know what? Deal with it, and don’t force me to lose my liberty, which is a greater tragedy than your loss. I’m sick and tired of seeing these victims trotted out, given rides on Air Force One, hauled into the Senate well, and everyone is just afraid — they’re terrified of these victims. …
I would stand in front of them and tell them, “Go to hell.”
This piece of slime made a half-assed “sorry anyone was offended” on his Monday morning show. How this douche-canoe still has a job is beyond me. If ever there was a reason to start an advertiser boycott, Bob Davis is that reason.
Mr. Blunt and Cranky had a great blog post about it yesterday:
Gentle reader, do you have children (or nieces, nephews, or grandbabies)? Try this little experiment: Go into the bedroom where they lie sleeping. Look at them, and say to them, “I’d rather you die than I might have to get a background check when I buy my next gun.”
Here’s hoping you can’t say that. In fact, we’re pretty sure you couldn’t. But Bob Davis could. And would. Here’s hoping that sick f*** doesn’t have children. Lord help them if he does.
[…] The other day I posted that Twin Cities radio host Bob Davis went live on the air, and said he would like to tell the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims to “go to hell” for infringing on his gun rights. […]
Just because Bob Davis has the right to say stupid things doesn’t mean the sponsors have to pay him for it.
I will be compiling a list of your sponsors and I will encourage people via Facebook to contact them and pull their sponsorship.
Bob has the right to spread his odd brand of hate, and we have the right to try and shout him down.
I actually kind of agree with the point he was trying but failed miserably to make. Maybe he will learn the lesson not to attack innocent people.
[…] fully expect this Rush wannabe to follow suit any day […]
