West Virginia Newspaper Shares Reader’s Awesome ‘Kill Everybody’ Voicemail [View all]

A West Virginia newspaper is taking flak for running a reader’s anonymous voicemail rant in its letters column, simply because the reader suggested some views that were a little bit outside the mainstream. In response to an article about the maybe-trumped-up firing of a lesbian teacher, a reader left a message on the Lincoln Journal’s voicemail praising the school board for its wisdom and suggesting some other improvements for the world. The message, as printed in the paper’s “Gripes and Gratitudes” column, read:


We were really glad to hear that School Board is getting rid of them queers. The next thing is we need to get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops. You know even them Catholics, they are wrong as baby eaters. We need to clear them people out and have good, white, God fearing Christians and everybody else needs to be put to death for their abominations. We’ll keep Lincoln County white and right. Thank you.

It was awfully thoughtful of the caller to use asterisks like that, we think. A Charleston TV station reports that many readers were upset by the remarks, which just goes to show that some people in West Virginia don’t appreciate the value of having a rich public dialogue that values all points of view.

Who the hell use "kike" and "wop" anymore? I'm surprised he didn't mention the Irish. Somebody needs to update their bigotry for the 21st century.



Like you'd expect this place is a bastion of diversity: As of the census of 2000, there were 22,108 people, 8,664 households, and 6,532 families residing in the county. The population density was 50 people per square mile (20/km˛). There were 9,846 housing units at an average density of 22 per square mile (9/km˛). The racial makeup of the county was 99.04% White, 0.06% Black or African American, 0.17% Native American, 0.06% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 0.06% from other races, and 0.61% from two or more races. 0.55% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race.
