People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch stumbled on a rant by Gun Owners of America leader Larry Pratt and right-wing radio host Stan Solomon about the Santa Barbara shootings.  Even by wingnut standards, it's horribly offensive.

Last week, Pratt appeared on Solomon's show to discuss the shootings.  Solomon actually had the gall to slam Richard Martinez for calling out the NRA for its stonewalling of gun reform laws.  "You stupid son of a bitch!" Solomon yelled.  "What the hell is wrong with you?"  Solomon then went on to say that if Martinez' son Chris--misidentified as a daughter--had been taught to use a gun, he might still be alive.

Later in the show, Pratt suggested that Rodger's horribly misogynistic manifesto revealed a mentality very similar to that of President Obama.  Pratt said that the manifesto "clearly reflects the thinking of a person like our president, who’s extremely narcissistic and it’s all about me, all about me."  Any other show, this would have been the most offensive part.  But Solomon's ugly smear of Richard Martinez beats it by a city mile.

PFAW got a clip--watch it here.

Disgusting--even by these yayhoos' standards.  Crash Solomon's inbox--email him at feedback at CPNlive dot com and DEMAND that he apologize.

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.
