I don’t tend to repost every petition that crosses my desk, but this time – the case of a US DJ who has openly advocated rape on air – i will make an exception.
The story, simple, straigthtforward, awful, can be found on the Advocate. Here’s the starter:
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is on the offensive after a Cleveland morning DJ made a horrifying comment that suggested a man allow his gay daughter to be raped.
The comment was made by Dominic Dieter, a DJ at Cleveland rock station WMMS. Speaking during the Rover’s Morning Glory show, Dieter was discussing a man who wrote the radio station about his gay daughter.
“You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight,” Dieter said, according to viewers.
There’s a bit more background on addicting info.
The petition, if that has you horrified, can be found on thepetitionsite.
The fact that this seems to associate to the awful Mitt Romney is not surprising.
