Billy Dennis, aka Peoria Pundit, is a libertarian blogger who owns the Blogpeoria project which is dedicated to citizen journalism in Peoria.  The "Blogfather of Peoria" decided last Friday to organize a boycott of WMBD's local advertisers of the Rush Limbaugh Show.  One of WMBD's on-air personalities, Wayne R. Miller, the host of the Sunday morning call in show, "Wayne and the Hot Lady of Finance." has vowed to ruin Billy financially.

For the past decade or so, Billy Dennis, has published his Peoria Pundit blog,  A frequent critic of the Republican party's penchant for race baiting, birtherism, religious intolerance, the Susan G Komen controversy, etc. he hasn't exactly made a lot of friends among the local conservatives.  Not that he really gives a damn.

After Rush Limbaugh's recent numerous comments concerning the morality of Sarah Fluke, Billy took it upon himself to organize a Facebook protest against Rush Limbaugh's local advertisers.  It was when he started to promote his idea on his blog, that is when the excrement started to hit the fan.

Wayne R. Miller, an employee of WMBD remarked he was going to go after Billy's advertisers.  Now Wayne like to brag on his website that his views are "slightly to the right of Attila the Hun."

Here's a taste of what this bully thinks:

So let me make sure I have this clear Billy.  Unless we agree with your view of things, then we have no voice?  Anyone with an opinion other than your atheist, liberal progressive one is to be silenced?  Not only have you left the ranks of objective journalists, you have entered the realm of Mao, Stalin, Castro and others who knew their way was the best and should be forced on others.  Perhaps your meager few advertisers and donors need to be reminded of the relationship they are in.
Now Billy may be an atheist, but he is Not a liberal or progressive.  His libertarianism is based upon his belief that government is frequently captured by the rich and politically connected, but to the ditto heads of central Illinois he is equivalent to Mao.

Here's a taste of unabashed misogynist hatred from this dittohead.

And whether or not they “did” the deed is not the question…I’m sure they did…although I don’t have a sister…..they did not testify in front of congress about doing it 22 times a day (Do the math on $3,000 worth of condoms) and demand that someone, anyone else pay for their pleasure.
Check out his boycott page and spread the news, or you can contact WMBD  Check out his blog and if you feel like it donate to his Pay Pal account.  BTW Billy suffered a minor stroke a few months back and I'm sure he would appreciate the gesture.

Let's see how much pressure we can bring to bear to show that Rush and Wayne's hatred of women do not "play in Peoria."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
