  •  I think this is fake (0+ / 0-)

    ...possibly a ploy to get people to call the number and leave nasty messages that will later be released to show how "intolerant" the left is.

    This just smells like a setup to me.

      and we have no indication that it is, though I thought about it for a few minutes, it depends on who spins it.

      And then it becomes just another "divide'em-up", as I've taken to calling them, contrived by The Media. Not the first and not the last and big damn deal, The Left has been "intolerant" since Reagan.

      Plus it's not like it's not believable in general. Too late to worry about it now, though. It's out there.  

      This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

    •  Obviously fake (0+ / 0-)

      Like the family who refused to tip their waitress because she was a lesbian.  The left is so desperate to find some evidence of discrimination that they must discriminate to do it.  How many times are you going to fall for this.

      •  It's not surprising (0+ / 0-)

        most people avoid confrontation and if they do discriminate, will deny it. Like my neighbor who came around with an anti-gay marriage petition in 2012. When confronted with criticism for her anti-gay position, she denied being anti-gay. It's like -- Really?! You're carrying around a petition to try to nullify the law the legislature just passed granting gays and lesbians the right to marry. It was explicitly anti-gay, but there she stood denying it.

        I was thrilled when they lost in November.

        I went to the radio station's website, and there was a message from the two employee of K98.3 apologizing for this whole mess.  They say they wanted to open a dialog about this important issue, but one doesn't open a civilized dialog with such an inflammatory story and FB post.  An open dialog would begin with something like, "Do you agree with gay people having famlies?" or some such. I find this strange.
        It must be in another post, but I object to this being a "leftie" thing. Any caring person would react to this.
        One thing that puzzles me is the "K."  Don't radio stations east of the Rockies use "W?"  "K" is for west of said mountains, I thought.
        Sorry this isn't in exactly the right place. This is my first post.

          Just checked a list of Long Island radio stations, and this one's WKJY 98.3. Have no idea why they go by K98.3, but now I know they're legit for sure.
          The fake story is still a dumb idea.
