Kessler Gets a Radio Show

After being fired as police chief for his appallingly moronic and violent rhetoric against his own constituent, Mark Kessler quickly found a new job in a cesspool where he should be quite comfortable: Right wing talk radio. And he’ll be joining fellow neanderthal Pete Santilli:

Kessler now has a radio show. And for audiences eager to lap up angry, foul-mouthed, anti-liberal rants alongside a heaping helping of right-wing conspiracism, he has partnered for the enterprise with another far-right figure, radio host Pete Santilli.

Santilli’s idea of civil discourse is very similar to Kessler’s. Last May, Santilli told listeners that he wanted to “shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina” and then watch her slowly die afterward.

Said Santilli: “I want to shoot her right in the vagina and I don’t want her to die right away; I want her to feel the pain and I want to look her in the eyes and I want to say, on behalf of all Americans that you’ve killed, on behalf of the Navy SEALS, the families of Navy SEAL Team Six who were involved in the fake hunt down of this Obama, Obama bin Laden thing, that whole fake scenario, because these Navy SEALS know the truth, they killed them all. On behalf of all of those people, I’m supporting our troops by saying we need to try, convict, and shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina.”

A perfect match, two loudmouthed, faux tough guy idiots ranting and raving. What else is right wing talk radio for?

    No need to insult neanderthals like that.

  • Doug Little

    If I were Bill I’d be calling in some favors making sure that this guy got what he deserves next time he visits his local bar.

  • StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    Well I can’t say I’m surprised.

    Although Santli’s comments on murdering Hilary Clinton with extra sadism and torture – to get away with something quite that horrific and hateful does surpise a bit even given the whole Faux news &their audience thing.

  • MikeMa

    No visit to Santilli from the secret service on threatening the Secretary of State? Oh well, Kessler will have good company on the air with him. The problem with both these assholes is their ability to motivate others of equal intelligence and lesser morals.

  • StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return!

    Lesser morals than Santilli and Kessler, MikeMa?

    I find it hard to believe that such people exist.

    (Equally little maybe although even that’s stretching it.)

  • Loqi

    I’m sure their show will be full of lucid social and political discussions.

  • I thought he already had a radio show. Isn’t that part of what got him fired?

  • DaveL

    There’s considerable evidence that when a neanderthal was sick or injured, the rest of his or her community would take care of that individual until they recovered. Therefore wingnuts are nothing like neanderthals.

  • uzza

    what happened with Santilli? For a while all we heard was the secret service was going to investigate him. Did they? Apparently nothing came of it.

    Also I still remember Rwanda. Can someone explain how / why the FCC doesn’t pull a radio show’s license to use the public airwaves when they incite to violence?

  • uzza “Can someone explain how / why the FCC doesn’t pull a radio show’s license to use the public airwaves when they incite to violence?”

    I would guess, after the most cursory of googlings, it’s internet radio.

  • exdrone

    I have a transcript from their first show:

    Kessler: Yee-haw!

    Santilli: You can say that again, Mark.

    Kessler: Yee-haw!

    Santilli: You can say that again, Mark.

    I signed up for their e-mail alert.

  • Kessler’s also been hangin’ with that shitheel, James Yeager, down in TN.

    I’ll be happy to hear that they all get together and have a “hold my beer and watch this” sortamoment.

  • Robert B.

    In fact, I’ve read a theory that the reason there’s no neanderthals anymore is because our ancestors killed them all. That makes it sound like the neanderthals were too nice, or at least not as clever at killing. (Though more recently I’ve read mentions of interbreeding.)

  • “Though more recently I’ve read mentions of interbreeding.”

    Get your filthy Neanderthal paws offa me!

    modus @10.

    Nice snark, how about answering the questions. The SS said they would “take appropriate follow-up action”, what if anything was it? These two may be on internet but every time I drive the company truck I hear similar shit on the AM.

  • uzza, that wasn’t snark. If it’s internet radio it’s out of the FCC jurisdiction.

    And another very cursory googling shows Santilli/SS related stories from May and nothing since.

  • uzza

    I know that. That’s why i asked the question. I had hoped that people on this blog would be likely to know more than I could find with ‘cursory googling’. I also knew that FCC has no jurisdiction over internet radio. That’s why I asked about AM radio, with FCC licenses.
