A student radio show was cancelled by the University of Minnesota-Morris after one of the hosts used the word “tranny” on-air, in which they said violated FCC rules and regulations, but forgot that freedom of speech of those students were violated and no such law prevents a student(s) from using the word, “tranny”.
What this boiled down to was that the lefty student station manager, playing political correctness, something liberals love to do.
“Deplorable Radio” is a weekly show on KUMM hosted by students Brandon Albrecht and Tayler Lehmann. Albrecht told The College Fix in an email that the programming is “a mix of politics, music, and some random musings about current events locally and around the world.”
The duo was notified of the cancellation two weeks ago after Albrecht used a controversial word on-air to refer to transgender individuals.
During a discussion about the university’s lack of “Antifa” violence, Albrecht said the campus was too small for a potential violent activist to hide his identity.
“You know, you can definitely, you see one tranny that’s trying to punch someone,” Albrecht told The Fix he said on-air. “You know it’s automatically that one guy that you know I’m talking about. I bet you know. I’m not going to dox anybody and name them on air. But you two know if I say the tranny who looks like he’s going to punch someone. Yep.”
“About fifteen minutes later,” Albrecht told The Fix, “the student station manager came into the studio with a UMMPD officer and told us to leave. She said we had violated FCC law by saying a word that was never allowed on air, ‘tranny.’ So we packed up and left the studio.”
“Hey guys, I am just going to have you leave. You said a couple words that break FCC violations,” the manager says, according to the video, which appears to be lightly edited for time. “And so for today I am going to have you stop your show. Specifically tranny. That is a hate slur it is not allowed on radio. I need you to leave.”
As she says these words, a campus police officer stands in the background, the video shows.
“Did you really have to call the police?” the students ask.
“Yes,” she responds.
“It’s a violation, you are breaking the law,” she continued. “I just need to enter a report. …”
“That is a specific hate speech word never allowed on radio,” she tells the students as they pack up, “in the same way that you can never say ‘c*cksucker’ on radio.”
School UNIVERSITY administration offers shifting excuses for cancellation; university will not comment.
Eh, okay, so there you have it. For all of you on the right of politics, the word “tranny” is now illegal and you too can be charged with indecency… just because a liberal(s) said so.
