(via here, thank you
), SOME QUOTES FROM THE SHOW IN RESPONSE TO THE OUTRAGE PEOPLE HAVE VOICED:"That's what makes this country great," Rossi said in defense of Willams and States. "The minute we start telling Arnie he can't say that, then somebody's going to tell me I can't defend transgender people."
"You guys imply that all you have to do is...whack my non-existant child with a shoe if he goes clopping around the house in high heels," commented a listener who identified herself as a male-to-female transgender who previously had served in the US armed forces for 22 years. "Don't you think that all the abuse that I took in school would have changed that basic nature in me?"
"Thank you for your service, but let me just say this right now," quipped an angered States. "You fought (in the armed forces) for nothing! With the opinions that you have right there, you fought for absolutely nothing!"
They say it was a joke, but obviously it wasn't. I've made a similar public post on my LJ asking people to link and comment with their own public posts
. Please help me collect links to LJ/DW/IJ/JF accounts concerning this matter. But I don't think it's all too necessary because YAY! People are really listening! WOO! But if you want to, please do. Share, link, help!Previous post with links, emails contacts and more
AND NOW... WELLS FARGO, TOO! YESSSSSSS.
AND THERE GOES NISSAN TOO!Contact the remaining sponsors!
the station's page of sponsors is still accessible via Google cache! ILU TOO, INTERNET!WEEKEND UPDATE!
Two more HUGE sponsors, McDonald's and AT&T are out!
AND FROM THAT POST: The pressure seems to have caused a stir at the radio station. Today at 5:28pm EST, we received an email from the General Manager promising a phone call this Monday with a possible resolution.
I'll be listening on Monday to find out
! (currently Saturday morning they're playing a Best of The Rob, Arnie & Dawn Show). Issendai has an advertiser roll call here
