Right wing blowhard Roe Conn ridicules Henrietta Hughes

We knew it wouldn't take long for right wingers to ridicule Henrietta Hughes, the woman who tearfully recounted living in her car due to homelessness to President Barack Obama in Fort Myers, Florida today.

Roe Conn took her to task and mocked her for wanting a kitchen, as if she was trying to get her house remodeled. Anyone with brain and/or heart, Conn has neither, understands that Ms. Hughes was talking about the stress of living in her car and how she needs help. Her reference to the kitchen was about needing the basics to live and regaining her dignity.

When a caller tried to explain what Hughes was saying and talked about the plight of the homeless that she witnesses in her Chicago suburb she was mocked as well.

1. If she asked for her own campfire to cook some freshly killed rabbits, Conn would complain.

Roe is as relevant as a fish egg.

Hateful people. She isn't looking for a handout. She's looking for a means to live, and with a little dignity.

2. Take a simple human sentiment like someone who wants to cook for her family
and turn it into something selfish and sinister so miserable people can snicker and sneer.

That's a crap way to make a living.

6. Actually, I know lots of Republicans, and none of them would behave like this asshole.
This guy (of whom I was happily ignorant before reading this) is the worst of the worst.

4. Oh but they have plenty of sympathy for someone like "B Girl"
Remember her? Freeper-types falling all over themselves trying to express sympathy and prayers for a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR.

I suppose no jail time, and a few weeks in "therapy"?

5. What an absolute asshole.
A man in a silk suit hurries by
as he catches a poor old lady's eye
just for fun he says "get a job"


Anyone who ridicules the homeless is a heartless POS, and he certainly hasn't learned much from the teachings of Jesus.

14. Heard a bit of Mark Levin tonight. He was equally vile towards her
Thought they had a right to question these people since they asked questions in a public venue.

17. I posted a response to Conn.....
....not that it will make any difference - people like Conn who have a box of rocks for brains and are absent of hearts could not recognize love and sympathy if it hit them in the face!!!!

23. Rather prominent Chicago radio talk show host
He's never struck me as a right-wing nutjob in the realm of Hannity/Limbaugh, because his show is mostly apolitical.

Geez, I hope so!!

26. I honestly haven't listened much since Garry Meier left
As a combo, they seemed to make fun of both sides equally on the rare occasion they talked "straight-up" politics.

27. Is Roe Conn really "right wing"?
Most of what I've heard of his show wasn't political.

I just don't want people in this thread thinking he has a show like Hannity or Limbaugh or that they only talk politics.

I don't doubt he is an asshole though.

30. Never heard of the slimeball


Now there's a piece of work, there. Has nothing else to talk about so he trashes the homeless?

For ratings?

Tell me again why I should believe Republics are actual human beings. I just fail to see any humanity in this thing.

32. if only she were looking in the belly of the plane
for the 400,000 in clothes and hair and makeup that it was OK to spend on Palin in two months...that would have been un-mockable!

But she dared to hope for a kitchen in which to prepare FOOD.

Shame, shame, shame.

She could be in a really nice house for half the cost of Palin's clothes for two months.
