Yesterday, it was reported that Mike Malloy, a liberal talk radio host and one of the original hosts on Air America, told his listeners that he hoped Glenn Beck would commit suicide on television. Isn't that nice?
“I have good news to report,” said Malloy on his Aug. 4 radio program. “Glenn Beck appears closer to suicide. I'm hoping that he does it on camera.”
“Suicide is rampant in his family, and given his alcoholism and his tendencies towards self-destruction,” said Malloy, “I am only hoping that when Glenn Beck does put a gun to his head and pulls the trigger, that it’s on television, because somebody will capture it on YouTube and it will be the most popular little piece of video for months.”
This makes me sick for a couple of reasons.
First, Malloy was absolutely vicious for bringing up what are probably very painful memories for Glenn. That would be like saying that one hopes Kurt Cobain's daughter offs herself and would probably do so because dad did it. It was just wrong.
Second, being from Pennsylvania, a public suicide is not pretty. On January 22, 1987, Budd Dwyer, treasurer of Pennsylvania, called a press conference to address his conviction of receiving bribes. After passing three envelopes to staff members, Dwyer pulled a .357 out of another manila envelope. Despite desperate pleas from onlookers, Budd put the gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger. A state and a nation were stunned.
Whether you like or dislike Beck, you have to agree that a truly compassionate human being would never cross this line. Yet, as we've heard so many times before, the leftist liberals are always screaming about how much they care for people and conservatives only care about the rich. Where's Mr. Malloy's compassion?
Hey Malloy!!! Just to let you know...I make a statue of you every morning.
