Hate radio talker "once referring to Condoleeza Rice as an "Aunt Jemima..."
3/7/12, "Local Radio Glad Breitbart's Dead, Would Pour Weed Killer On Grave," Breitbart.com, Rusty Weiss
"A few days ago, conservative author Ann Coulter summed up the left's reaction to the death of Andrew Breitbart with this statement: "Even in death he shows liberals in their true colors." With that, those true colors, the same rage and venom being spewed in Breitbart's direction, continues.
Last week, we saw Rolling Stone publish a piece in which author Matt Taibbi lamented how happy he was for Breitbart to be gone. We saw Slate columnist, Matt Yglesias, proclaim that "the world outlook is slightly improved" with Breitbart dead. And then there was former editor of the New York Press, and Taibbi cohort, Jeff Koyen, mock writers defending Breitbart as "hitching yourself to a corpse".
Continuing in that same vein of sub-standard decency is liberal radio host, John "Sly" Sylvester of WTDY in Madison, Wisconsin. Sylvester recently aired a 20-minute segment on his radio show which was posted as a Podcast entitled, "Andrew Breitbart: Dead (thankfully)."Here is a short list of Sylvester's most vitriolic comments towards a recently deceased husband and father of four young children:
- “I’m gonna pour Round-Up on his grave …so there’s no chance that he ever comes back to life! And I can kill him like the weed that he was.”
- “I’m glad he’s dead!”
- “To me Andrew Breitbart’s death is kinda similar to Kim Jung Il. Kind of a similar thing.”
Sylvester has ahistory of such controversial segments, once referring to Condoleeza Rice as an "Aunt Jemima" and also accusing GOP Lieutenant Governor, and cancer survivor, Rebecca Kleefisch, of having performed "fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee."
Additionally, I've contacted Program Director for WTDY, Rex Charger via e-mail seeking a comment, but have yet to receive a response. Perhaps Big Journlaism readers would have better luck (h/t Bethany) by clicking here.
On the meantime, please take a listen to this YouTube clip (h/t Badger Pundit) which truly illustrates the creepiness involved in this radio segment:
