Get active!

More appalling behavior from Michael McGee Sr. and Jr.

This time the have crossed a sacred line.

From Real Debate Wisconsin-

Quote from RDW: This is 1,000 times worse than anything Imus did to be thrown off the air.

Patrick at Badger Blogger was the first to call attention to the disgusting comments by the McGee's. Patrick has now posted the audio by the McGee's.

My opinion- It is time to get active!

I am horrified. Even out Jr. and Sr., I did not expect this.

Remember the comment at the Blog Summit about how the democrats use the Internet to become activists and Republicans do not.

Well- the time has come to change that. It is time for conservatives to become active.

Call the advertisers. Keep calling the advertisers and let them know you will never bring your business to their establishment until McGee is off the air. Also demand a written apology from the advertisers directly to the Sykes family. Because of these advertisers, McGee stays on the air.

Write the FCC over and over again.

Write all of the local chapters of the NAACP demanding they denounce McGee's comments.

Call TMJ4 and let them know what is going on.

Call and write each and every single alderman in Milwaukee and demand that they get McGee under control. Let them know what a bad reflection this is on all Milwaukee alderman.

Call the radio station and demand an apology and that McGee be suspended. Also let them know you are calling all of their advertisers to encourage them to stop advertising.

Yes- we all have freedom of speech. However we are all responsible for what we say.

There is very little any of us can do to ease the Sykes family's pain.

What we can do is hold the radio station and the McGee's responsible for their words. We MUST hold them responsible.

Get active!

Update: Milwaukee Channel 12 has picked up the story. Keep making phone calls, keep writing in.

Update II: Michelle Malkin is now on this story.
The Drudge report has also linked to the story

Thanks for the "call to action" on this. I will be making appropriate contacts.

I'm at a complete loss to express the level of disgust I have toward this tirade.

And again, the double standard in the media is glowingly illuminated. Had the roles been reversed with McGee and Sykes (and of course they would never be since Sykes is a class act and human being), but hypothetically, I'm betting Sykes would already be off the air and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would have already landed in Milwaukee and be leading rallies!

OK, just needed to vent somewhere ;^)
