Western University's CHRW Radio To Give Platform To Well Known Racist

Yeah, somebody thinks Kathy Shaidle is a valid representative of some legitimate political philosophy.  In this case its CHRW, a campus radio station who are probably so desperately in need of content that they'll throw anything on the air without bothering to do a background check.  In case anyone needs reminding, here's  just a few of her greatest hits.  To repeat myself: she's not a Conservative, she's a Racist and, for the folks at CHRW, there's a precedent for people who have offered her a platform actually doing some research, learning about her, recoiling in disgust, and denying her that platform after some sober 2nd thought.

Its probably too late, but if anyone wants to email the station, you might try:

Grant Stein, Station Manager

It probably won't work.  In fact I bet Mr. Stein climbs aboard the portable crucifix all would-be newsies get when they attend j-school and claims to be oppressed.  Might be wise to remind him that the only other thing Western is famous for is Jean Philippe Rushton.

Update:  As of this morning, Shaidle was still scheduled to appear.

Note that she purged alot of what she has said here from her original site...I know when these episodes happened though, that many people took screenshots. Those may come in handy.

I believe in free speech and would die to defend if need be. But in this case it’s not free speech it’s hate speech, it’s hurtful and it’s derogatory. Everyone should be allowed to say whatever they want in a free, open and democratic society. But if what you say causes hurt and harm it should be banned. You can’t yell “fire” in a crowed movie theatre cause it would cause panic and harm to someone.
