I. Why talk radio is hate radio to some?
More and more I am hearing people refer to talk radio as hate radio. Finally, I’ve decided to
comment on the matter. Sure, there is some hate talk on talk radio, but, there is also divine
love talk on talk radio, too. And by far most of the talk on talk radio is positive and good for
America. I also think political labeling such as liberal and conservative should be put in
perspective. I’m basically conservative on most issues, but, overall I consider myself to be a
Most people as they grow older and experience life’s struggles they will naturally grow more
conservative. But, almost no one will be liberal or conservative on every issue. Just because
one says he is a conservative doesn’t make it so. There are people out there on talk radio
parading as conservative, but in my view is actually opportunist. A true conservatives can be
one of the most hard tough disciplinarian there is and seemingly without pity, but what you
won’t find is: Is a sadist bone in his body.
There are people on talk radio that have some true conservative views but overall lack
genuine love and compassion. A fact is, one can do all of the good in the world but if it is not
done with genuine love and compassion it will never have lasting appreciation. Concerning
the word hate, there is a survival need for all emotions including hate, but, the overall purpose
for hate is to destroy. In my view hate and unforgiveness is behind all mental illness.
When you keep hate in your heart it will destroy you as well as anything else it can. About
wisdom, wisdom and intelligence are two different things. I believe wisdom is the ability to
recognize dangers to survival. There are cases of young teens laughing while being taken to
jail, because of a weak survival instinct due to not having any discipline in the home.
Struggles over time as we age teach most of us the wisdom how to recognize survival needs
But, age and time is not the only teacher. Through trauma an indelible stamp of threats and
dangers can be imprinted on the minds of abused children and they may show the wisdom of
a sixty year old. It can really shock you how a child as young as age three or four can
constantly say things so wise. However, the real secret to life is balance and perspective,
though. Any uncompromising conservative or liberal is an extremist whether he agrees or
As for hate crimes, I think the hate crime law enacted is one of the dumbest ideas the liberals
ever came up with. I think the law is reverse racism and sexism in itself. Will the law ever be
used to convict a black man for killing a white man, never? Who in the hell can truly know
what is actually hidden inside the mind of anyone. If someone is chanting “I love you man”
while carving you with cold steel, is the pain any different from him chanting “I hate you
I just feel the law should stay equal under all conditions because when you start down that
road the law becomes political, and guess who is going to lose in the end? As for
prostitution, I know I’m way out in left field on that and as about as far away as you can get
from established Christian teaching. But, as a realist and objective thinker I believe my
reasoning on this matter is valid. I believe that anyone that thinks that prostitution can be
gotten rid of is just plain naive and doesn’t understand human nature.
I believe prostitution is a venting mechanism and necessary sin. I believe the reason we have
pornography everywhere and all kinds of child molesters and perverts is because men that
are ugly, handicapped, undesirable, unmarried, antisocial, etc. can’t find legal means to vent
sexual energy. Plus, since the come about of the welfare state, women no longer have a
survival need for a man, especially an undesirable one.
The build up of sexual energy is no fantasy, it is real and physical, and society is going to pay
dearly one way or another if this energy is not vented in a harmless way. The sexual drive to
procreate is the strongest urge in all of nature and can’t be just sweep under the rug and
ignored without severe side effects. That said, the Romans and other ancient societies
realized centuries ago that the wisest thing was to tax it and regulate it.
Enough said on that subject. Now, why is talk radio considered hate radio to some? The
main reason is the liberals see talk radio as the enemy because most of the talk is against big
government and the welfare state. The liberals see government as the great white father
provider and is not going to take kindly to anyone bad mouthing him, period. The liberals
think talk radio want to take food out of the mouths of children and take the scooter carts
away from old folks, which of course is not true.
In fact, the liberals see anyone against big government as the enemy and a hater. As a writer,
the liberals feel I must be a hater, otherwise why would I be so against big government and
the welfare state? I tell them the country should be prepared to survive even if the economy
collapses and the government doesn’t have any money. And I believe money is about to
become worthless. Then I’m seen as a nut case, because almost no one can even conceive
of the unthinkable.
Almost everyone sees the federal government as omnipotent and that it will always be there
to take care of everybody, wrong. I know different, everything the government has comes
from the people, or tariffs. I think it is cruel for any government to make masses upon masses
of people dependent on it for the sake of power, when all of these people are going to be left
stranded with no skills to survive when money is worthless and the government can't help
To me that is an unforgivable crime that is going to cost millions upon millions of innocent
dependent lives someday. I have no power to stop it, except to try to sound the alarm, glory
be to God, I’m doing what I can. That is why with all of my handicaps I try so hard to stress
the need to rebuild the nuclear family, then everything else will falls into
