Conservative St. Louis radio talker Bob Romanik is compared to Rush Limbaugh in this article. I doubt it. Rush does not use any taboo words on his show.
Excerpt from River Front Times
Earlier this week, the RFT reported that Romanik had called the rapper Waka Flaka Flame a “greasy black n*gger son-of-a-bitch” during an on-air tirade last month. That story drew calls for FCC intervention, as well as a campaign to target his advertisers.
A conservative firebrand in the mold of Rush Limbaugh, Romanik subsequently dedicated much his airtime to defending — and repeating, over and over and over again — the N-word. “I’m going to take that First Amendment right and I’m going to exercise that sumbitch, I’m going to exercise that First Amendment right until it looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Romanik thundered to his listeners.
… Or at least until it affects his bottom line.
According to Romanik, he was justified in labeling the rapper with the slur because Waka Flaka Flame had taken a concertgoer’s Donald Trump jersey and used it to wipe his bare ass. Over the course of three shows this week, Romanik veered between defending the slur and taking calls from supporters, several of whom introduced themselves on-air by stating they were “proud” white men who agreed with Romanik’s worldview.
In Romanik’s mind, when he and other “proud white people” use the the N-word, they’re patriots exercising their First Amendment rights.
Romanik’s basic defense was to whine — not only that the First Amendment gave him the right to say anything he wanted on air, but that it was simply an expression of personal honesty to append the fully-pronounced slur to any black person who offended his sensibilities.
“If you say cracker or honky to a white race, I won’t get any heat, but let me say n*gger one time,” Romanik said later in the show. “A black person can use the word and a white person can’t? How discriminatory is that?”
As we reported yesterday, Romanik’s insistent use of the racial slur prompted concerned listeners to contact his advertisers. And on Tuesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board called on the FCC to put a stop to the radio man’s runaway mouth.
It’s like I’ve written here before. “Nigger” is in the dictionary. He who controls what words I use is my slave master. I am nobody’s slave. Thus, when “Nigger” is the right word, I’ll use it.
I agree with Bob. Waka Flocka Flame is a Nigger.
