Liberals across the country are going bananas over a measure signed into law by North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory that, NPR reported, would require all government-controlled facilities “to assign all multiple-occupancy bathrooms and locker rooms to a single sex and prevent anyone who doesn’t match that biological sex from using the facility.”
Responding to a link on Facebook, Gillie wrote: “This is beyond ridiculous. I wish random crazy shooters would target these republicans (sic) instead of innocent children. Yup I said it. Nope I don’t regret it.”
Who would you vote for if the elections were held today?
Here’s a screenshot of the comment in question, just in case it disappears:
In an email we obtained from a source who wishes to remain anonymous, Bryan D. Hollenbaugh, General Manager of the station, said Gillie’s comment is his opinion only and “may likely have even been meant with twisted humor in mind.”
“I can, and would, only influence if it directly pertained to the radio station,” he added when asked if the station condones such comments. “Everything else is 1st Amendment rights, regardless of opinion.”
Hollenbaugh said he appreciates the concern our source expressed, adding: “We do take our representation in the community seriously and I thank you for bringing this to my attention.”
One can only imagine the controversy that would ensue if that statement had been made using the word “Democrats” or “Muslims” in place of “Republicans.”
As a final note, my source tells me the comment was reported to Facebook, and as usual, Facebook said it didn’t violate their “community standards.”
