KFI’s Bill Handel recently suggested reducing the U.S. population to save the government money. There was some inane discussion including on euthanasia, and then some bigoted comments about getting rid of Armenians and selling Glendale. So far, tacky garbage par for the course on shock-radio. Next, Handel & Co.’s mocked a Greg Garabedian who emailed to criticize the bigotry. Then came the unbelievable shocker: one of Handel’s cohorts says, “what the Turks started, Bill will finish.” Imagine the uproar if a comment like that were made at the expense of Blacks or Jews (ironically, Handel’s father is a Holocaust survivor).
Listening to the link below might turn your stomach, especially if you’re Armenian and have kids. Don’t let it stop there – take action. While the law often permits what conscience should forbid, there is no reason why we shouldn’t express our profound disgust as a community. Take 10 minutes and do something about this.
Here’s the link (pulled off KFI since this happened):
