Re: “Herenton in the Bunker: "You Got to Watch These White Folks."

At least Herenton did not sink to the depths of his main media cheerleader, Thaddeus
Matthews, on his station WPLX. There for past few weeks, one could hear Matthews railing
against Cohen, the "Jewish slave master" (!), a new addition to his rancid diatribes on behalf of his buddy Herenton featuring his usual low information content. And that's only the beginning. He really got worked up on the air with so many anti-Semitic rants I thought I was in a space-time warp back to 1937 Berlin.

I noticed the racialistic language of Herenton and Matthews grew in extremes between the
Herenton's campaign kickoff (Feb, link below)

and recent Matthews' talk shows (July, link below)

My little question about the links above: Is Memphis so far off the radar (even to ourselves)
that a congressional candidate can get a way with this kind of race mongering (and supportive rants over local media) that it doesn't even get a mention in the major media (except the NY Times)?

Re: “Just One Herenton: On the Ex-Mayor's Bizarre "Free- for-All" Extravaganza

Great, well observed.

"Gladiator Willie" is all about fight talk.
