The cesspool that is right wing talk radio continues to get worse and more toxic. Wingnut radio host Jan Mickelson noted that a group of nuns were going to Washington, DC to protest against the Ryan budget and he asked a sitting congressman whether he could arrange to have them pistol whipped.
A conservative radio host says that the Catholic nuns who have embarked on a nine-state bus tour to protest the injustice of Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) proposed budget deserve to be beaten with a handgun because they “threw the first punch.”
“There’s a bus full of nuns headed towards Washington to lobby against the Ryan plan,” radio host Jan Mickelson told Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA) last week. “Do you guys, do you have any power to pull the nuns on the bus over and pistol whip them?”
“They say he is evil, they say he is fake Catholic,” he added. “They’re the ones that threw the first punch.”
Yeah, they criticized a Republican congressman. So therefore it’s okay to commit violence against them.
