Jay Severin, the fiery right wing talk show host on Boston’s WTKK-FM radio station, was suspended yesterday after calling Mexican immigrants “criminaliens,” “primitives,” “leeches,” and exporters of “women with mustaches and VD,” among other incendiary comments.
Heidi Raphael, a spokeswoman for the station, said Severin had been suspended indefinitely from his afternoon drive-time show. She declined to say which of his comments – made since an outbreak of swine flu was linked to Mexico in recent days – sparked the suspension.
In one of his broadcasts this week, Severin said: “So now, in addition to venereal disease and the other leading exports of Mexico – women with mustaches and VD – now we have swine flu.”
Later, he described Mexicans as “the world’s lowest of primitives.”
“When we are the magnet for primitives around the world – and it’s not the primitives’ fault by the way, I’m not blaming them for being primitives – I’m merely observing they’re primitive,” he said.
He added that Mexicans are destroying schools and hospitals in the United States. He also criticized their hygiene.
“It’s millions of leeches from a primitive country come here to leech off you and, with it, they are ruining the schools, the hospitals, and a lot of life in America,” he said.
He added: “We should be, if anything, surprised that Mexico has not visited upon us poxes of more various and serious types already, considering the number of criminaliens already here.” En el Boston Globe
ES increible como la retórica de los racistas es parecida en todo el mundo. Ojalá un día Aldo Mareátegui y Bedoya Ugarteche sean suspendidos por sus comentarios racistas en sus columnas periodísticas.
