Hate radio

WFOY and WFOY-AM, our local Republican radio stations,
choose to broadcast 24 /7 Rightwing propaganda, including Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingram, Gun Owners Radio Hour and other nonsense, little of it locally originated. Our St. Johns County School Superintendent, Dr. Joseph Joyner, Ed.D. taped a station identification, and there is a daily pawn to former County Commissioner Mark Miner during the Pledge of Allegiance.  Does anybody at this radio station understand fairness, or balance?  I just listened to Laura Ingram and Rush Limbaugh today, and realized that the wall-to-wall hatred is what is tearing apart our country.  Lowest blow: Laura Ingram referring to "real people," as opposed to minorities and Gays.  How louche.  Do sponsors listen to it?

I don't listen to her, so I missed the context. What is offensive aboyt "real people"?

Her clear meaning was that GLBT people and immigrants weren't "real people." Disgusting. By the way, the people on this radio station in the morning sound happy and well-adjusted, even giggly. In sharp and marked contrast, Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingram are maladjusted unhappy bores.
