I’ve been listening to the Brad and Britt show for a whole bunch of years, Partly because they are local, partly because they are entertaining and partly because I need some Leftist influence. Just to keep me honest. And almost always, they deliver. I enjoy the show.
I get that they are a profit center. They are hired to deliver ratings in a market so that they can sell advertising to an customers. I get it. And so I mostly let most of the stuff they say go in and then go out. They’re playing to an audience and are more circus performers than they are knowers of important things.
But jeepers, sometimes they say things that are just not so right. So wrong in fact, that they are lying. And I call ’em out. And when I post I tweet. And they notice.
Sunday night I pinged Brad and Britt. I posited that the Occupy Wall Street crowd is racist. I came to this conclusion in the same way the media decided that the Tea Party was racist. Some fun tweets occurred and we called it a night.
Then I listened to this:
The interview was offensive. And after I dropped my kids off at school, more of the same. A caller was interrupted by Britt parodying Rush and shouting him down. Funny stuff, I guess, if you’re on that side of the football field.
And I called him out:
The response of the tolerant Leftists? They “blocked” me on Twitter.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m a Twitter rookie. I’ve had an account for years and only posted a little. That I get blocked or not blocked isn’t the point. The point is, that’s how the Left rolls.
