Liberal talk show host mocks tornado victims and religion as storm ravages US

- March 6th, 2012

Mike Malloy, a left wing talk radio host, heard on Sirius XM Left channel 127 is being criticized for mocking religion and tornado victims as storms ravaged the US last week. Malloy called those killed, “grease spots.” I’m not making this up.

Here’s a transcript of his comments, which as I said were heard on Sirius XM, partly owned by CBC – the state broadcaster.

“Their God … keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in  Alabama, and Mississippi, and Arkansas, and Georgia, and Oklahoma,” Malloy says in his broadcast from Friday. “You know, the Bible belt, where [in a mocking voice] they ain’t gonna let no goddamned science get in the way, it says in the Bible, blah blah blah blah blah. So, according to their way of thinking, God with his omnipotent thumb reaches down here and so far tonight has smashed about 20 people into a grease spot on highway 12, or whatever the hell highway they live next to.”

So given that CBC rushed to do a Rush story can we expect a story telling Canadians what a creep Mike Malloy is or will they give him a pass because he is a liberal and kind of one of their employees?

    Strange that if it was a muslim theman would be hauled into court.
    The outcry would be tremendous. But they are only Christians.
    Well we still have an omnipptent God, who is also jealous,and in due time wil show who is in charge.

    Sickening, the hatred hurled at Christians via the leftwing media and it’s feral leftwing followers is becoming epidemic. CBC is a disgrace and has been for decades.

    Let me get this straight, rush has to apologize for his comment but you can make fun of people who have been ravaged by a tornado and lost everything and you think your better than everyone and you are sickening and you ought to be ashamed of yourself. I am a democrat and I do not make fun of people, you should be taken off the air and tarred and feather and beaten to a pulp and your tongue cut out with dull scissors.

    Well now, this is interesting. they certainly had lots to say with the slut comment…let’s just see if they pretend not to know Mike Malloy. mind you, they are quite busy hysterically talking robot calls, firing up the public!

    Laugh now and make fun of GOD, But what will you do when you meet him all alone, no audiance, no librials, to back you up.

    As a Christian who has been deeply immersed in creation and flood science issues, I have become aware how our rebellion against God is the source of extreme weather due to plate tectonics during the flood. Unfortunately, we all suffer from the effects of our global rebellion. Mr. Malloy and others of his ilk don’t have the external resources that ‘grease spots’ like myself have when things hit the fan. ‘The Harbinger’ shreds interesting light on tragedy.

    I find the attitudes in this country increasingly disturbing. I don’t believe in a supreme being at all; nor do I call myself “atheist” because it seems to be an organized anti-religion. To be perfectly honest, I think that being able to have faith in anything in a positive way can be healthy for anyone or everyone. Whether that be your family, friends, a deity, or any of those combinations, I’ve seen the power of it, first hand. I believe it is up to the individual and what gives them the strength. (Again, in positive ways that do not harm anyone else.) So when I hear someone say something of this caliber, I can not bend my mind around to their way of thinking. It is also my personal opinion that, whether you are a religious person or not, you have to take the good with the bad and move forward. For these poor people, that is probably harder than it is for others who have menial everyday stress compared to losing everything you own and some of or everyone of those you love. To demean that, just because of someone’s belief in a higher power is simply unforgivable. I feel that, if you are going to judge someone because of their beliefs (and I do have morals, so let’s add to that: “that don’t harm anyone”) you should at least know the basis of those beliefs, if not a full-study. (I am not going to attempt to refute the argument that “If you know anything about Yahweh, you have to be Christian.” I know a great deal about a lot of deities throughout time; to be honest, they’re fascinating.) Usually, when a disaster happens, you hear people thanking Yahweh or someone that it wasn’t worse. Take that away and what happens? People despair worse than they might have if they hadn’t had that extra level of psychological support. Meh. I’ve gotten off on a tangent. I don’t find it “funny” or “ironic” that people lost their lives. And whilst this fellow was pointing out all of the Southern states, he neglected to point out those that were far north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Now, why is that? Indiana was hit. Ohio was hit. I didn’t hear any mention of those. So laugh at the Southern States all you want, Mr. Malloy; Washington D.C. has been hit my an earthquake and a hurricane in the last year. I don’t see you drawing any parallels there. Or maybe you have. It just hasn’t been brought to my attention yet. I suppose I also find it strange that Limbaugh can be such a point of concern for calling someone a slut, whilst tornado victims are called a splat by someone with opposing views. (And no, I don’t think that taking the actions to “prevent” a pregnancy over “terminating” one is wrong. I prefer “prevention” over “termination” any day.) But the Limbaugh fiasco was internet front-page news, whereas I haven’t seen/heard Malloy’s comments anywhere save this website and a link from RedState.com. Hypocrisy know no bounds, it seems.

    Brian,
    Anybody with a sense of decency will condemn those remarks. This isn’t a Liberal-Conservative, right/left argument . . .
    It’s a right/wrong discussion.
    I’m surprised that with your parent company’s new deal with Radio-Canada that you’re still spouting the “state broadcaster” line, shooting from the lip, etc.

  9. Steve Skeete says:

    Mike who? Never heard of her/him.

    It’s people like this bloke who mock God, but whine and cry out for Him when some unfortunate happenstance comes about.
    Weird.
