|Are we moronic yet?! Looking smart, morning crew! Well, not smart, per se, but certainly representative of your listening demo! And who's that handsome brute with the beer? Why, that's DJ Dieter. He thinks rape cures lesbianism. |
Strange, he doesn't look like a braindead homophobic misogynistic bastard. Much.
|Dieter's profile on the radioshow's website. Nothin' but class, DJ Dieter, nothin' but class.|
Ughly. According to TruthWinsOut:
“It was appalling and dangerous for this show to tell a father that he should have one of his friends rape his daughter,” said Aaron McQuade, director of News & Field Media at Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). “That’s essentially how Dieter responded to this listener, and this is no laughing matter in a world where people are too often the victims of violence and sexual assault based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation. And Dieter gave this vile advice to everyone who was listening, including educators, parents and children – sending the message that it’s okay to physically or sexually abuse people who are perceived to be gay.”There are countries like, say, Ecuador, where "forced confinement clinics" have sprung up to "cure" lesbians by torturing them sexually and otherwise. According to The Advocate:
These clinics have also imprisoned gay, bisexual, transgender, and cross-dressing people, to a lesser extent than lesbians, “probably because they get to leave the family earlier than girls,” said Velasquez. “The girls have all told the same thing: They are threatened with rape or raped, handcuffed, starved and forced to dress like prostitutes.”I'm just wondering: how is this any different from a white supremacist suggesting publicly that neo-nazis go out and beat up or kill black people? At what point is enough enough?

They came from the local 7-11 bakery or wherever."
But here's the thing: the radio station where Dieter works (can espousing hate-filled homophobic ultra-violence be considered a job?) is owned by Clear Channel Communications, which is also majority-owned by Bain Capital, the company that Mitt Romney started and through which became insanely rich. Romney is still connected to Bain which, unsurprisingly, also carries Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other batshit crazy right-wing misogynists.
So, here's the cookies and milk candidate whose company owns a company that puts out violent-hate speech in support of rape. Sounds about right for today's republican party.
Respond with Action: DJ Dieter's got to go; &Tweet Romney.
- Sign the Petition. There's a petition to get this misogynist bastard fired from his job at the radio show. It's a small thing, but it merits a minute of your time to add your voice to a growing outcry. Sign the petition here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/540/714/054/fire-wmms-cleveland-dj-dominic-dieter/.
- Write to the radio station. Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and give them feedback on DJ Dieter. He should be fired. Period. No one should be allowed to urge violence against anyone, gay, straight, black, white, and especially NOT women. Or go to their website.
- Tweet Romney himself. Why not? Romney is on Twitter. Let him know what you think of Bain's relationship to this radio station and how he makes money from violent hate-speech that endorses rape. Here's his twitter account: @MittRomney.
