KCTN Minneapolis Jock Bob Davis To Newtown Parents: \’Go To Hell\’

by Categorized: Newtown Date:

Minneapolis radio host Bob Davis stirred a small controversy after he said this on April 12:

I have something I want to say to the victims of Newtown or any other shooting, I don’t care if it’s here in Minneapolis or anyplace else: Just because a bad thing happened to you doesn’t mean that you get to put a king in charge of my life. I’m sorry that you suffered a tragedy, but you know what? Deal with it, and don’t force me to lose my liberty, which is a greater tragedy than your loss.

I’m sick and tired of seeing these victims trotted out, given rides on Air Force One, hauled into the Senate well, and everyone is … terrified of these victims. I would stand in front of them and tell them, ‘Go to hell.’

Davis, who has been offered an expense-paid trip to Newtown by a local resident to explain himself, did not immediately return a call to the KCTN-AM studio this morning.

Davis appears on the morning Davis and Emmer In the Morning Show on KCTN-AM.

    While Mr.Davis may have been a bit blunt,he is correct.The horrible event at Sandy Hook perpetrated by a madman,has been lionized by the liberal media and our leftist politicians for their own agenda and they should feel nothing but shame for subjecting those folks to their own selfish ends.Regardless of the hollow promises of Obama and Malloy that it is not about confiscation,those words ring hollow

    All kidding aside, and I play on these boards with he best of you (hint, kim…), I will be sane and straight with my response to this man. Davis represents the darkest side of human nature. The side that not only doesn’t recognize other opinions, but who pounces on anyone like a school yard bully. A sociopath who makes a living by firing up a small discontented crowed or gang of misfit Americans who are deluded with a false sense that liberty equals guns = freedom equals his false 2nd amendment right to vast firing power that is able to inflict untold damage, suffering and death on others. And his followers, extreme in these opinions, pay a rightist fee for this melody of discontent.

    Mr. Dave is God-sent. We need more of his kind out on the stumping block. For his words are the words of madness that will inspire more opposition to this gun culture that has been allowed to fester in this country.

    So I thank Mr. Davis. Bring them on. The uglier in thought content, the better. The side of gun control will win in the end. As a poet once sang:

    The line it is drawn
    The curse it is cast
    The slow one now
    Will later be fast
    As the present now
    Will later be past
    The order is
    Rapidly fadin’
    And the first one now
    Will later be last
    For the times they are a-changin’.

      sounds like a self-assessment billyboy. I guess your psychologist friend nailed you with this assessment and you decided it would work in your favor against someone else.

      No wonder you post under so many different names – you know we all see you just like you describe here and the only way anyone will read your postings is to believe they come from someone else.

      I’ve got news for you – you are immediately recognizable under any name. You are that obnoxious and that reprehensible that no disguise can hide your true self.

      1. bill

        and kimmy, why do you post under so many aliases. Is it split personality or just ashamed to reveal who you really are.

        1. Betrayed Democrat

          billyboy: If that’s how you feel about multiple aliases, why do you use so many? After all, it was you who began the trend. Having a problem with others using your tactics? More liberal ideology at work – do as I say not as I do

          1. Forest Chump

            it takes two honest people to strike a deal billyboy. that leaves you out by definition (see: compulsive liar). that much is becoming more and more clear

  3. Greg

    That wasn’t very nice. Perhaps Davis should work on how he uses his words to get a point across with a bit more tact.

  4. justme

    Bob Davis is correct in his assessment. If I lost my child to this senseless killer, I would expect the armed presence in the school to defend the helpless. Even knowledge that our schools have armed presence most likely would have prevented the Sandy Hook shooting. The gun legislation passed by Connecticut will not prevent this type of crime and only punishes the law abiding citizen. Massachusetts has very strong gun laws that did not prevent the latest shootings by the terrorists– Lets get real folks and stop the senseless left wing legislation that is going on these days. If the left spent as much time cleaning up the first amendment that they are against the second amendment we could stop the violence in video games and movies that seem to promote these killings.

  5. Kim

    I support the right to bear arms. I support the right to use them to defend myself. I support the right to fight against government tyranny.

    And I support the right to speak up when it is right.

    And Bob Davis is RIGHT.

    1. billy-the-liar

      more billy pretending to be who he can never be. Easy to see why Kim makes you look the fool

    2. Kim

      Even though billy-the-fool is impersonating me here, at least he got my thoughts right for a change.

      Never be ashamed of what you are billy – we’ll do that for you. Maybe impersonating me is rubbing off on you and making you think more clearly. One can only hope – the gods know you need all the help you can get

        1. Kim

          with an admission like that billyboy, it’ easy to see why you would use someone else’s name. It DOES go a long way towards explaining your rest room obsession, though.

          Every time you open your overly-large, cesspool of a mouth you dig yourself in deeper. Such genius is hard to come by

  6. Paul

    You gun idiots still think u have the right to own any firearm meant for our military. Why on earth do you need an assault rifle meant to slaughter people in seconds. Are you that paranoid? Go see a shrink!!
