God nut buys GB radio station...highly suspect!
Here's how the GB Press-Gazette portrays this guy and his efforts....but they fail to mention what he's really all about.

It took a few seconds to google the facts on Mr. G...

Joseph R. Giganti is a conservative commentator who makes regular appearances on TV and radio outlets nationwide, including the Fox News Channel, CNN, and CNBC. He is the president of Veritas Media Group, a full-service media and political consulting and production firm.

Joe has worked with many of the country's leading conservatives, serving as a spokesman and the national media strategist for Ambassador Alan Keyes' 2000 presidential campaign. Prior to that, Joe was the executive producer of Keyes' nationally syndicated TV & radio simulcast. Joe also has served as a producer on the syndicated radio shows of Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, Michael Reagan, and Ken Hamblin. He has produced and directed numerous documentaries and biographical videos, including the highly praised pop-culture documentary, "The Gates of Hell...," which was released in 2001. Joe has successfully launched programs for the Free Congress Foundation, the Center for Security Policy, The Declaration Foundation, and Salem Radio Network.

Giganti has been a speaker at fringe rallies, with people like Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, and other fringe radical neocon theocrats.

He was fined almost $5 Million by the FCC, for violating the bidding process on airwaves, in Arizona, for backing out of a bid he won...and then refused to honor.
The FCC fined him for the costs of a new auction.

Relevant Radio, which was bought by Advance Acquisitions, said Joe Giganti, its president and chief operating officer, had conducted three separate tests determining that the signal could reach the Phoenix metropolitan area. But when Advance discovered the software used in making those determinations was flawed and the conclusions incorrect, it withdrew the bid.
He is appealing, claiming he was a novice at the bidding process.
Bidding on FCC radio licenses is not a place to learn such thing, Joe...I assume you hired a few lawyers to help with the bid?

The spectrum was sold in 2006 to another bidder for $2.23 million. The $4.7 million penalty includes FCC costs for having to conduct a second auction.

He's a real sexual crusader too.
No Condoms, AIDS is a myth, Romney is a cult member, and all the radical religious claims of Doomsday and moral decay, are the labels Giganti promotes.
You can only get the drugs your doctor prescribes...if the pharmacists believes.
Your health is in the hands of some Biblical wingnut?
Columnist Joe Giganti, of Renew America said:
"The concept of forcing a pharmacy and a pharmacist to prescribe something that goes against their moral and scientific beliefs is as un-American as one can be."
The science of pharmacology is a ethic? No, not by a long shot Mr. Giganti.

On AIDS prevention and US fudning to Mexico for AIDS relief:
Read the transcript of his views on abstinence....

His past rants and radical intolerance, was evident when the RU-486 drug "The Morning After" pill applied for FDA approval....
But, Joe Giganti, spokesman for the National Pro-Life Action Center (NPLAC), told Cybercast News Service that the report exposes a "culture of corruption" at the FDA.

The problem is so severe that the agency is "no longer acting in the best interests of their own mandate, which is to look out for the public health and safety," he added. "They approved a drug that is dangerous to every baby and has been proven dangerous to most of the women who are taking it," Giganti said.

The drug was approved,by the FDA and is legally available to all rape victims, victims of incest in almost every emergency room in America.

He also claims Planned Parenthood should not get any federal dollars to protect teens from STDs.
But is he taking those federal faith-based initiative dollars to buy up radio stations?
Maybe someone could look into that?

On Moral Decay...The movie "Pleasantville" destroyed your children!
The plot of the film:
A brother and sister from the 1990s are sucked into their television set and suddenly find themselves trapped in a "Leave it to Beaver" style 1950's television show, complete with loving parents, old fashioned values, and an overwhelming amount of innocence and naivete. Not sure how to get home, they integrate themselves into this "backwards" society and slowly bring some color to this black and white world. But as innocence fades, the two teens begin to wonder if their 90s outlook is really to be preferred.

Mr/ Giganti's take on the film..."This sets off a chain of events in which the entire town begins to "liberate" itself by giving into passion. The teens begin having sex at Lover's Lane (until now they didn't know what sex was), Jennifer teaches her TV mother Joycelyn Elders' favorite form of sexual satisfaction, which then leads the mother to an extramarital affair with the local soda shop owner.

Giganti's got a clear agenda, and the area's Catholics had better watch out....he's after you and the rest of the morally corrupt in Allouez.

This guy and his group should be watched, very carefully.

3. End of Days Evangelicala are dangerous to America
Pat Robertson calls for killing a foreign leader, blames 911 on gays, denounces an entire city for not promoting creationism instead of biology, and supports a thrice married pseudo-Catholic.
Falwell, blamed everything on gays. Everything.

These men are dangerous and are promoting the end of the Establishment clause, the separation of church and state. They got the faith based initiative passed....which is nothing more than tax dollars going into churches. The US military is infiltrated with evangelicals, who armed with some of the most dangerous weapons, have a loyalty to their faith over their nation. Over 6,000 complaints by US servicemen have been filed, against other soldiers who walk around all day badgering others into their faith.

They promote the violence against womens health care clinics, have supported the shootings and bombings as justified God's will.

This is the facist element in the US, and they must be stopped. Their tax exempt status must be stripped and end all forms of religious 'expression' that involves any political issue. Religion must be, again, bottled up and put in it's place in America.
That place is not being a PAC fundraising arm of any candidate, as it it today. That place is not allowing hate speech and denomization, as biblical fact..when it is clearly slander.

Religion, the actual ones doing biblical work are not in the news. They are the ones feeding the poor and helping improve their communities.
The ones on TV, with millions of duped Kool-Aid drinking, Jonestown suicidal bombers have to be removed from our society, permanently, so that the real religions can pursue, unfettered the mission they, as actual Christians, wish to follow.

What PAC did you pray to last Sunday?
When was the last time the news covered the good deeds, instead of the outrageous and offensive claims of some militant facist terrorist, blaming 911 on an American?

4. uh... 'removed from our society, permanently...?'
I'll go along with exposing them, turning over the rocks they hide under, that kind of thing.

This essay does it as well as any I've seen:

It was kind of an epiphany for me to find it, the weekend I had my first Communion in years. I've been going to church semi-regularly ever since.

5. (Ir)Relevant Radio is a real piece of work
Even more so in Wisconsin. Talk about taking all talk "fundie" radio and put a little Catholic twist on it and there you have it.
