3. OMG!

Who sponsors this show?

I'm not calling for a boycott, but I have to wonder what companies ask for a spot on that show. For that matter, what station would air this racist shit?

As a follow-up, she now says she isn't a racist because of her last name, and she didn't use the word "monkey" and "Obama" in the same sentence. Her blog post also has unrelated entries about evolution that she feels explains her words.

I'm glad she cleared that up. I hope she has a good second career choice.

16. It's in Arizona- and, shocker, it's an AM station

Check out the lineup: http://1100kfnx.com/ All that's missing is a timeslot for Goebbels...

And you wanted to know who advertises with them? Apparently anyone with $25: http://www.1100kfnx.com/index.php?/opportunities/

This is the kind of static laden outlet that may feature deep pocket programming like Wayne's World.
Party on Garth.

4. Wash Her Mouth Out With Soap. Go To Hell You Miserable Little @#$@#J^#$J%^&^&*&^*

As bad as it sounds we have to start delivering consequences and let sick bigoted hateful witches like this suffer consequences of their actions. This kind of action and words is getting out of hand. We are going to have to fight people like this witch. We are going to have to embarrass and go after her.

This kind of language is incendiary and even dangerous.

12. I hesitate to call a whole state racist.

But the racists do seem to be in charge at the moment.

AZ needs a reboot.

28. It will get a reboot real soon...

The demographics in this state are changing. The racists know it, and they are pissed. I wonder how miss "my last name is Espinosa so I can't be racist" feels about us latinos that can't pass for white? But then again, why should should I care? Her days are numbered.

8. re:Phoenix radio host calls the president a monkey.

please please . people on this board take a RATINGS study. to get rid of these ilk. call ambitron and ask for a device to sit in your room . everytime it detects a souind it records it. many huge radio properties lost their ratings because of this device . i havent listened to any of our socalled local clarke ( a clear channel wannabe ) radio stations in years because they broadcast this kind of trash on their flagship station. if u really want them off the air .do a ratings survey. thank you i too am sick of this . ratings are a tv and radio stations life blood (advertizing dollars )

14. She says it twice and then follows with "I voted for the white guy myself".

I like the guy who called in and told her "If you want to talk intellectually, fine,

but what you're doing is just calling names..That is WRONG"!

25. There is no history of white people being called monkeys or chimpanzees

as a racial slur--but there is a long history of just such slurs against African-Americans.

If someone sent out emails criticizing Bush while showing him eating watermelon or fried chicken at a fundraising picnic, no one would assume that the food imagery was chosen with racist intent--but it would nevertheless be considered racist if similar pictures of Obama were sent out in a critial email, specifically because of the long history of using such images in racist attacks against African-Americans.

Context matters. To call a white man a monkey or a gorilla as a way of suggesting that he is not intellectual or sophisticated is certainly insulting, and people do insult those on the opposite side in politics. But it is much more than merely insulting to do so if one's target is an Afrian-American, specifically because such imagery has been used in the US as part of the process of dehumanizing African-Americans and of justifying horrendous abuses against them.

There are other ways for the RW to insult Obama without resorting to racist imagery. They call him a communist/socialist/elitist snob and all sorts of other things. We consider those isults stupid, wrong, and obnoxious, but as much as we disagree with them, we don't consider them racist, because they are not racist.

17. If you think that it's racism of a species matter, you are correct.

If you think it's a color racism issue, you are totally wrong.
Besides, one chimp told me that he was insulted that we were calling the Shrublet one of his kind.

18. There goes that twitwit's career.

Hopefully it's circled the drain, and gone into the sewer.
I hope that she doesn't think she can get elected ever again, because she cannot.

I hope the local NAACP and any anti-racist plan a protest and demands an apology and resignation of this pig.
