Local Radio Host Tells Joke Suggesting Hillary Clinton Should Be Shot

Radio host 'Georgia' told a joke saying that Clinton should be shot like Lincoln was.

KSCO host jokes that Hillary Clinton should be shot
KSCO host jokes that Hillary Clinton should be shot
Santa Cruz right wing KSCO radio host "Georgia" opened her Wednesday show with a joke suggesting that Hillary Clinton should be shot.

In the joke, Clinton asks other past presidents what she could do to better serve people. Lincoln tells her, "Go to the theater."

Station owner Michael Zwerling hasn't yet responded to a request for a comment. However, Zwerling and his mother Kaye made a big issue out of a cartoon in the Santa Cruz Weekly that depicted their station with a swastika on it. 

KSCO-AM (1080) features conservatives Rush Limbaugh in the morning and Charley Freedman in the afternoon, with a sprinkling of other types of voices the rest of the day. The morning show is nonpartisan and the 2 p.m. show is liberal. 

The station is one of the few independently-owned talk stations left in the country and is at times very socially responsible (particularly during local disasters) and at others wacky, at best.

In the interest of full disclosure, I did the 2 p.m. show weekly for several years. 

Georgia's noon to 2 p.m. show comes from a Tea Party perspective and has all the wit and intelligence of a Ku Klux Klan meeting. In a recent show, the native South Carolinian suggested that slavery wasn't as bad as it was depicted. She also did a show arguing that Paula Deen should be forgiven for using the N-word.

What do you think of Georgia's "humor"? Is this the kind of joke that is acceptable on a publicly-licensed station? 

You can hear Georgia here.

I wonder how angry Hillary got when married Bill had 6 adulterous girlfriends abort his babies. Wonder? Oh well, " What difference does it make at this point?"
jonathan schork September 26, 2013 at 07:27 PM
whether or not one agrees with the appropriateness of the joke (and gabrielle giffords might be able to offer some perspective on that), what's really disturbing here is the level of vulgarity, ignorance, & illiteracy manifested in so many of these responses-- cf. especially "marlene", "renegadepetie", & "john smith"-- and this on the same day we read that SAT scores in reading & writing are dropping precipitously. ye gads, where have all the smart people gone?

Where have all the "smarty farts" gone? Harvard Law ~ Constitutional studies. Obvious.
RenegadePetie September 26, 2013 at 07:40 PM

You really havent seen anything yet....I didnt know that you were appointed spell check police on this site.... and those drops in SAT scores , are you surprised , its the Govt that has taken over edumacation what do expect....things will get worse under common core
Margarette September 26, 2013 at 07:58 PM
"Her Thighness" faked a "Situation Room" hand over mouth photo shoot! Ha! Interesting all the Marines that were involved are DEAD. As are the FBI agents who interrogated the Boston Bombing suspect. DEAD. Brad and Huff Bluff dont care for REAL DEAD. They just squeal like little pink piglets at JOKES. Come on, now? Who is really the "Joke" here?

Often radio and TV personalities will say 'outlandish' things to draw attention to themselves, which in turn helps their ratings or helps them sell books or, quite frankly, helps them sell themselves. Unfortunately I've come to expect such behavior now that the internet is not going away. Say something that will irk a group of your ideological opponents, and it will be read/heard around the world before you can go get another cup of coffee. It's too easy being annoying and arrogant and outlandish and rude. The 'joke', whatever it is, directed at whomever, will always strike a chord with a certain group of people while annoying everyone else. I think the 1st Amendment is here to stay. The only difference any of this makes is whether the joke teller plans to run for office. In that case, jokes of poor taste could boomerang on the candidate. Otherwise, I say "let it slide." When Hillary becomes president (I don't see any republican at the moment who has a snowball's chance in hell), I expect jokes and slurs 10 times worse than what I've read here. The internet has released the beast in all of us.

Hillary is a CRIMINAL thousands times over. She needs to be indicted and tried for TREASON.
RenegadePetie September 26, 2013 at 08:47 PM
@Margarette Thats right she LIED and has NEVER been brought to questioning for it....people guilty of treason in the old days were put in front of a firing squad and SHOT, without the theater, play on that one BRAD...I am so glad KSCO got rid of your sniveling a** ,glad to see there are others here who support Georgia and share my view.... I can play at least 10 soundbites of their god obomber inciting violence during his re-election campaign... they are ALL criminals from mcain to pelosi to reid to graham to obama to holder to lois lerner...they should all be tried and then _ _ _ _ for being treasonous pieces of lieing trash , fill in the blanks KAVA
Margarette September 26, 2013 at 09:04 PM
Treason brings on the guillotine. Heck, let's just NDAA her lumpy bumpy! Rid that scum curse from our country. Her descendants will spit at the sound of her name.

I am not surprised this station exists in Georgia. I made the mistake of going into Georgia and was very glad to leave it behind. General Sherman marched through this state and did a good job of wrecking it. Too bad it was not turned into sewage dump after he left. Also, Georgia gave us that great American Newt Gingrich, the one who helped draft the Contract on America. He was the one who helped engineer the last government shut down. Georgia, home of inbred red necks and men who love their sheep. If Georgia was severed from the Union the national IQ would go up about a 100 points. One last thing the University of Georgia football team would get their butts kicked by the third string of the University of Alabama football team. I am also guessing the second string of LSU would probably do the job also. The Ohio State team would make them want to stop playing football, and the University of Oregon would put so many points on the board against them the scoreboard would burn out.

It is unfortunate that people can no longer tell a joke, smack their child's hand and say No, or just paint their house red. It seems that people now expect to be told what is acceptable, and then just except. It comes with a price I fear. I like jokes, the color red, and doing what I know is right. Georgia I hope you keep talking, I will listen. The joke was funny, Brad, remember sitting at the dinner table with your family talking about anything? That's what good men fought for so you could talk on the radio, paint your house red. Not make a joke something else.
RenegadePetie September 26, 2013 at 09:57 PM
LMAO you are an idiot RqBert, typical of the dam left leaning loons I see here .... The Broadcasters name is Georgia, the station is KSCO broadcasting out of Santa Cruz , CA..... a sanctuary city in trouble I might add, shows your intelligence when you have no clue about where this is even coming from, no one gives a damn about your tribal idiotic football anologies
RenegadePetie September 26, 2013 at 10:13 PM
oh and one more thing ....as per president oblahblah....raising the debt ceiling does not raise our national debt...HOLY SMOKES what an idiot your devine democratic communist half white half black god is..... I love this guys logic and math....2+2 = 5 and under common core obamanomics if you can explain that answer its correct HOLY SMOKES and I know this for a fact because I have a 6th grade student who is subjected to this AND subjected to ISLAM ??? REALLY ...you fawking femme demoncrats are wrecking the country , why dont you just LEAVE, go to an island where a man and a man can get married an reproduce more of your type
Charles Schwartz September 26, 2013 at 10:41 PM
NO ONE should joke about shooting and death -- no one.
Grace September 26, 2013 at 10:48 PM
WOW looks like a troll lovefest going on in here. If Georgia is a teabagger then it's her opinion and her right if she wants to be tacky and tasteless. I think that one troll started making a stupid comment and the rest all got in line. First of all this has nothing to do with Obama. It's about someone who has little talent who has gotten on the radio and acts stupid. And obviously this woman is reich winger, correct? Why do trolls and morons bring Obama into everything? How about bringing in the wackos like Cruz, or Coulter, or Rush, but heaven forbid they do that. Trollitis involves selective memory, lack of facts and always blaming "those damn libs" for everything when 90% of the time if those damn cons who are screwing things up. And NO I am not one of those damn libs. Am quite conservative but am so tired of people who say they are cons showing the world how stupid they are and giving cons a bad name.
RenegadePetie September 26, 2013 at 11:34 PM
WOW ..... this has everything to do with obomber , HE is the one who started the violent talk on his re-erection campaign trail, referring to his political opponents as "enemies" saying they must "fight" with guns not knives , and I can find that footage for you..... now, you calling Georgia a "teabagger" shows how ignorant and "stupid" YOU are this has everything to do with obama because that piece of filth polarized the country more than it has ever been and he, himself was a big contributor to the ongoing conflict...... "reich" winger ??? the same "reich" that supported hitler like Prescot Bush, Ford, IBM and eve TIME Magazine...the "reich" didnt die, it moved to America and took over via ODESSA and Operation Paperclip so check your facts gracie before you get into those Nazi references.... furthermore , the modern term "lib" is offensive, these people arent libs they are authoritarian eugenecists... a REAL liberal stands for true FREEDOM like Washington and Jefferson...not these fake wannabe demoncrat "libs" today...Cruz stood up for you in a 21 hour speech against the Hitlarian Socialized obamacare ....it has ALOT to do with obomber you just cant connect the dots... you want some real "reich' shite gracie, then you as woman would be tossed into an oven for speaking up because I dont recall any prominent Nazis being women....i dont blame the dam "libs" I commend them , they set our country free, modern day "libs" are undeserving of the title, modern day "libs" should stick to what they are , demoncrats....come back when you have educated yourself
RenegadePetie September 26, 2013 at 11:49 PM
Bed time for me because I am getting pissed off at the utter ignorance on this site..... but then I am not surprised , I would expect nothing less from a site that blows a dumb comment into epic astrological proportions like mister Kava has.... kava that sounds like a dam fruit, how appropriate....you make a big to do about nothing again and I will be all over your shite mr kava-kava
Margarette September 27, 2013 at 12:15 AM
Gracie, do you have a clue what censorship is? So you are saying no one should make a joke about death and shooting.... heck, our government Corporate Welfare Giants are making a zillion $$$ off our tax paying broke backs (actually, our grandchildren will be enslaved by this death debt) on death and shooting. That is what America is all about. The movies, music, TV, tattoos, gang clothing attire. We are saturated in it! A joke is a joke. Let's censor all the above then, too. We tax payor broke buttes pay for that ingrate "servant" to not get shot. IT WAS A JOKE! Grow up!
John September 27, 2013 at 12:57 AM
From the vitriolic remarks about the noon to 2 pm show the author reveals himself as a hard core Santa Cruzeite who represents all that's wrong with California. I've lived in California for 65 years and had to move inland to the Central Valley to scape the extreme liberals, nuts, druggies and porn people.
Gregory Urbach September 27, 2013 at 03:17 AM
If you get crazy every time a goose stepper makes these remarks, you'd go nuts. If you must have closure, send them something in the mail that doesn't smell very good.
Don Hellbound September 27, 2013 at 06:16 AM
I'M THINKING THEY SHOULD ALL BE SHOT,HUNG,WHATEVER, BOTH DEMS AND REBS, THAT WAY THE NEXT BATCH COMING IN MIGHT DO THERE DAMN JOB.
henry eroh September 27, 2013 at 08:25 AM
the public cannot handle the truth- thich ugly witch has her nose everywhere- and to think she might run for prez- very disturbing- wonder if she will have someone hiding under the desk servicing her?
Margarette September 27, 2013 at 11:39 AM
Lies! All Lies! Liberals like lies? Why? http://www.infowars.com/seymour-hersh-bin-laden-death-one-big-lie/
RenegadePetie September 27, 2013 at 02:33 PM
Brad Kava will be on the Saturday Special with MZ tomorrow.... I encourage everyone , wether you agree or disagree to call in..... I sure as hell am going to try to voice my opinion
Patricia Pava September 27, 2013 at 04:51 PM
Pull this person off the air now. Everyone who commented before me - you are doing yourselves a disservice calling her names and/or being disrespectful to Hillary in every way you can think of. Comment on what she said about Hillary - which pretty despicable. Whether you're a conservative or liberal - stop talking nonsense. It was not a "JOKE" - a joke makes people laugh - what's funny about what Georgia's said? Whoever owns the station - take an action please, or else you are complicit and this type of broadcasting. If so, your listeners are not the type of people I would want as friends.
Margarette September 27, 2013 at 04:57 PM
Renegade, a better strategy would be to boycott the show. Let the Losers lay in their lies and censorship. Why give this moron any attention. DON'T CALL. DEAD AIR IS VICTORY!
Nicholas Hawley September 27, 2013 at 05:54 PM
Really Brad, Of all the things to get upset about, this?!? Where was your indignation when defended and said WORSE about a sitting and former president (Bush) when you were a host on KSCO? No you defended the free speech rights of those. So In Kava-land if there is a (D) by the persons name they have the right to free speech, if you have an (R) by your name, then smile and keep your mouth shut. Kava, you're not a journalist, you're a partisan hack. So is Georgia, she's just honest about it.
RenegadePetie September 27, 2013 at 07:27 PM
@Margarette.... Georgia is also going to be on the air with him so, I guess they are gonna get down to it , I am actually interested in what he has to say , lol, even tho we all already know how I feel about it, I dont think I kept it a secret.
Margarette September 27, 2013 at 09:14 PM
All right, RenegadePetie, I'll try calling in on my ObamaPhone!
