Cowger

Caiden Cowger, a teen talk show host in West Virginia who has obviously paid a lot of attention to Bryan Fischer is getting attention for a new video in which he rants against the "perversion" of homosexuality and says that Obama is encouraging kids to decide to be gay.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Says Cowger:

"I see younger people that is turning out to be homosexuals...we've got about 30 teenagers in this county that I'm at that are homosexuals and it is sickening...I knew these teenagers when they were in elementary school...they were not homosexuals. They just decided all of a sudden - I think I'm going to be gay. Why they are becoming homosexuals is because they are being encouraged...President Obama. It's all right, it's okay you were born that way."

The New Civil Rights Movement notes that Cowger has already been noticed by a few conservative Republicans:

Cowger has written a book, Being A Young Conservative, which has notes of support from Rudy Giuliani and Glenn Beck’s chief of staff. Cowger’s radio show is on Facebook, and he has a website for his radio show. Cowger has become so famous he has interviewed Herman Cain, and West Virginia candidate for the U.S. Senate John Raise, adding that he “spoke at the Annual Harrison County Lincoln Day Dinner. He spoke following Senate Candidate John Raese, with Candidate for Governor Bill Maloney, and Candidate for Congress David McKinley.”

Cleveland DJ Dominic Dieter Apologizes for Telling Man He Should Have His Possibly-Gay Daughter Raped Straight

Over the weekend, Brandon posted about Cleveland WMMS Radio personality Dominic Dieter and his advice to a man who discovered his daughter kissing another girl that he "get one of [his] friends to screw [his] daughter straight."

DieterThis morning, Dieter apologized:

"I just wanted to say that, I know on the show this past Friday I made some comments that people found…..  considered to be offensive.  And I just wanted to say, I understand why people are angry.  I want to genuinely apologize to anyone who may have been offended by what I said.  I regret what I did say.  My comments were inappropriate.  They were inexcusable, and just downright stupid.   And I want to make it clear; there was absolutely no intention to promote physical or sexual violence.  And I’m truly; truly sorry by my poor choice of words that led people to believe otherwise.  Again, Rover… I just want to apologize for any pain I might have caused. (...)  I ask people to find it in their hearts to forgive me.  I am sorry for the words that I did say. "

WMMS told GLAAD it is disciplining Dieter but hasn't specified the punishment. The station says it will also run PSAs "about the dangers of parental rejection, and the importance of giving LGBT young people a safe learning environment."


Radio Personality To Father: Have Your Daughter Raped Straight

WMMSDOMINICDIETERX390Radio listeners in Cleveland received a rude jolt yesterday morning when Dominic Dieter of Rover's Morning Glory -- a talk show on the massively influential WMMS 100.7, "The Buzzard" -- told a father that his possibly-gay daughter should be raped straight.

From GLAAD:

According to the incident reports (and later confirmed to us by an executive for Clear Channel, the station's parent company), the anti-gay remark was made by Dominic Dieter, one of the "Rover's Morning Glory" cast members.  Responding to an e-mail from a father who (for reasons unknown) wrote to the station to say that he'd happened upon his teenage daughter kissing another girl. Deiter responded to the father, on-air, by saying:

"You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight."

This is not okay.  Not on any level, and not in any context.  We trust that the majority of fair-minded Americans will agree. Make no mistake, if this young woman is, in fact, gay - or if she's simply not interested in having sex with any of her father's friends, then what Dieter is suggesting is rape.

That's right, Dieter. Rape is not funny, and "corrective rape" happens to be a real and hideous thing

GLAAD's calling for Dieter's suspension, and for an apology, and for Rover's Morning Glory to produce "a segment speaking about the real harms that can come from parental rejection." If you'd like to let WMMS know your thoughts, the station's emailable at feedback@wmms.com, and the general manager, Gary Mincer, may be reached at 216-520-2600.
