Why the "EFF" is Jimmy Buffet being promoted by Hate-Radio?

Please excuse my salty Sailor language, but this pisses me the fuck off.

Jimmy Buffet is coming to town. Great music, loyal fans and he puts on a great show.

Our local wingnut hate-radio station is doing a promotion giving away free tickets.

Why the fuck do we continue to treat these fucking piece of shit radio stations as if everything’s just fucking “normal”.

Here’s the line-up of my local hate station.
0600-1000: Local Wingnut who tries to play both-siderism, but is nothing but a toxic racist asshat
1000-1200: Brian Kilmeade (yes, even a no talent hack from Faux and Fiends can have a radio show as long as they attack Democrats and suck Retrumplican dick non-stop)
1200-1500: Rush (enough said)
1500-1800: Hannity (Putin’s favorite host)
1800-1900: Some local “Let’s rip-off military retirees and anyone with a TSP account 'investment' show”
1900-2100: Michael “Fucking Weiner” Savage

These stations, along with hundreds of others in every nook and cranny of this country, have done nothing but demonize and dehumanize our friends, neighbors, co-workers and families for over 30 fucking years now.

When do we stop just treating them as if; “well, that’s just business”.

This is NOT normal! I’m sorry, IT IS NORMAL because we’ve enabled it to be normalized.

Sure, these stations do nothing but take a giant shit on over 50% of the communities they serve, but hey! Jimmy Buffet tickets!!!!

It’s fucking maddening.

When is enough going to be fucking enough? Would it be when these stations and their hosts are responsible to causing a stupid government shutdown that is ruining people’s lives and livelihoods?

Hey folks! We’re fucking there!!!!!!

Maybe we should just continue to ignore it. Maybe we should just accept it as normal.

“Hey, we give you 160 hours a week of nothing but toxic garbage, but be sure to tune in for the Ohio State Buckeyes taking on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in a classic Big Ten Basketball game. By the way, be sure to stay tuned after the game so that Rush can tell you how your next door neighbor’s daughter is a “slut”, and how the family of immigrants across the street that run your local restaurant are just ‘parasites coming to kill you’. Please don’t miss Hannity after the game as well, so you can understand how the guy who works at the Naval Base and coaches your kid’s softball team is just “sucking at the teat of gubmint, is probably a terrorist, and…god forbid…has a decent pension”.

These fucking radio stations ought not be giving away concert tickets…they should be fucking toxic to anyone and any company that comes within 1,000 fucking yards of them.

These radio station own this fucking stupid shutdown as much as Donnie “Tiny Hands” does.

When the fuck do we actually start making them fucking pay for the terrible harm they’ve done to our country?

1. What's your suggestion to stop it?

I'm willing to be most Democrats don't listen to right-wing radio, so it's not like a boycott would have an impact.

3. I'm not a racist asshat

and I'd like to know of ANY company that I do business with doesn't fund racist, asshatted propaganda.

If said company does funds racist, asshatted propaganda, we have a duty to ensure they know that they've lost our business...and why they've lost it.

I don't drive a Ford, but if Ford was sponsoring racist, asshatted propaganda, Ford should know that I would do all I could to put them out of business.

9. I don't listen, but I do know the lineup

I strongly believe that we have the wrong attitude about this incessant, relentless propaganda in EVERY fucking nook and cranny of our country.

I keep hearing, "well, don't listen to it", or "Democrats and liberals don't listen to it, so why bother?"

That's a terrible attitude.

It's like saying; "I don't eat honey, so why do I care if they kill all the bees"...NO, it's even worse than that. It's like saying; "I don't eat honey, so why shouldn't I spend my money at a company that funds the destruction of bees?"

I'm an American. It matters fucking deeply to me that I not help fund companies and corporations that promote the demonization and dehumanizing of my fellow Americans.

Gee, it's not like Hate Radio is doing anything to harm us all...is it?

10. Apparently you do listen, or you wouldn't know about the promotion.

Freedom of speech - it’s a thing.

7. I'm confused by your post.

Right Wing radio station buys tickets to Jimmy Buffet and wants to give them away as a promotion?

Well, okay.

I mean, it's not like Jimmy Buffett has any say in who buys his tickets, so.....
