Madison radio personality Sly incites listeners to go to Paul Ryan's home and dump candy at his door.

Audio at the link.
We fired up our V-8 caravan and headed south to Janesville, home of an empty GM plant, worker plight, and Paul Ryan. He offered candy to a constituent who really just wanted a job and his legislative help in getting one for himself and the rest of Rock County's unemployed. So, we brought him enough sugar to last he [sic] and his yippy-skippy wife and neighbor the rest of their lives.
You can listen to the audio of the radio broadcast yesterday morning on WTDY. Sly gives out Ryan's home address, giggles about going over to the house to put candy there as a prank, and urges readers to head over there, with candy. He goes into detail about the directions to the house, the number of children who live there, and the physical attractiveness of the Congressman's wife.

Taffy is welcome on my doorstep anytime.

MadisonMan said...

Idiot.

(I'll let you decide who deserves that moniker)

Henry said...

When do morons start acting like morons?

Brennan said...

Sly could just oppose sugar tariffs that have sent US candy manufacturing jobs to Mexico.

You know. Just saying and all that.

Rick Caird said...

My first thought is "turnabout is fair play". If a radio host advocates protests at the home of a politician (or anyone), that host should be prepared for protests at his home. Does this guy have kids? Are his neighbors likely to be impressed with a large protest?

These people from the left never seem to realize their tactics can be turned around on them.

Freeman Hunt said...

He really just wanted legislative help to get a job.

Sigivald said...

Classy.

edutcher said...

The word lawsuit comes to mind.

(I know, the courts have fixed it so Lefty morons like this are protected under the First Amendment or something)

Of course, Ryan could go the union route and hire some goons to come down to the station while he's on-air and beat him like SEIU beat Kenneth Gladney.

Pogo said...

Nothing sinister in broadcasting a foe's address and the fact there's a pretty woman alone with some little kids.

Nothing sinister at all.

GulfofMexico said...

Sly has a boner for Michael Moore. Douche.

pogo101 said...

I guess folks who disagree with this tactic now get an Ethical Irony Pass to broadcast Sly's home address hither and yon, along with descriptions of his immediate family members, and exhortations to dump items at his house.

garage mahal said...

The Feds raided the house of a former top aide to Walker this morning.

One of the agents had a large camera and two of them were wearing latex gloves. They spent time in the backyard and then went into the house. One also removed a large banker's box and put it in the truck of a car

Interesting!

Shouting Thomas said...

How much are you paid, garbage, and who pays you to try to misdirect every posting on this site?

Roger J. said...

you wisconsinite are totally fucked up--perhaps we should have sly's home address so people can come visit him--most fucked up place in the entire 57 states.

truly sick really fucking sick

Coketown said...

What's Ryan's address? I'm showing up with buckets! UNLESS THERE'S GOOD N' PLENTY! I HATE GOOD N' PLENTY!!! PUKE! UGH! GROSS!

Nice segue, Garage.

Shouting Thomas said...

Amazingly, I don't look for legislative help when I need a job.

And, yet, I always have a job!

Roger J. said...

Garage--what does that little billetdoux have to do with topic at hand?

focus, son, focus

Fred4Pres said...

I tend to keep guns like Sixty Grit. And I will not discriminate on who I use them on--I am an equal opportunity home defender. The only time anyone should be discussing candy on my porch is October 31 and maybe Easter. Otherwise stay away.

Clyde said...

There's obviously a big difference between Sly and clever.

Who has been killing jobs the past three years with taxes and regulations? Hint: It's not Paul Ryan.

Freeman Hunt said...

Heh. The woman couldn't let it pass that the radio guy said Ryan's wife looked good. She had to add "Barbie" and "plastic."

The Palin Effect in action.

Sorry that was definitely off topic. I always find it fascinating what righty bloggers aren't talking about though.

Shouting Thomas said...

Note garbage's second misdirection tactic. Althouse is a "righty blogger."

Althouse is pro gay marriage and a feminist.

She has written objectively about the antics of public employee unions in Wisconsin.

Thus, she is a "righty blogger."

Who pays you, garbage, for these misdirection attempts?

Roger J. said...

Garage: it may be that republicans have dark secrets--my opinion of our political class is quite low--if there is some substance to your post, then convince our hostess to publicize it. Until then this post is about a radio personality advocating what may be harassment.

Remember when kids were off limits? Lefty scumbags just can't resist.

Was it full of candy?

traditionalguy said...

The new social media is being tuned up to be a tool to condemn and intimidate the Obama Gang's opponents.

Obama wants a Union Spring started up as a copy cat of Charles Manson's Helter Skelter.

The once hidden evil in Obama is coming out fast now.

Carol_Herman said...

Okay. And, a congress critter has no powers at all against a radio station. Gee. You could'a fooled me.

How much is this "prank" gonna cost the radio station?

Do they need to go out and hire lawyers?

Toshtu said...

I alerted Attack Watch.

phx said...

It's not "the left" and it's not "the right" who's in error. They might be in error regarding policy, but that's not what we're talking about.

The error that this describes comes from elsewhere in a human than their ideology.

I had some pretty lenient bosses when I was on the air, including one that was completely clueless, but I'm pretty sure, even with our market share, we would have gotten fired over something like this. I was arrested a couple of times, but even those stunts didn't get me fired. This would have.

Unless the station is privately owned and the owner was a dem. I suppose you could get away with it then as you'd be shielded from any fines.

Pogo said...

Sly and his radio buddies might want to Netflix The Fisher King, a movie where Jeff Bridges plays a radio shock jock whose on air banter induces a man to kill someone, and his subsequent descent into penury and madness.

Capt. Schmoe said...

Around here, the imbecilic radio talk show hosts who like to give out phone numbers and addresses are a couple of alleged right-wingers named John and Ken.

While I agree with the majority of their statements, it is pretty obvious they really don apply any logic or thought to what they say.

I guess idiocy applies to radio hosts on both ends of the political spectrum.

Christopher in MA said...

"I always find it fascinating what righty bloggers aren't talking about, though."

You're right, garbage. She should be talking about that crook Walker and his gang of theives! Report her to the Obama Geheimestaats - sorry, I meant the Obama "Attack Watch" at once! Althouse must be reeducated for the greater glory of the Party!

Although, if you're fascinated by what's not being talked about on this blog, let's get a conversation going. What do you think about Gunwalker and Solyndra? Hanging offenses or just lots of PMITA jail time for the administration? Or do you want to just keep shrieking "Look! A bunny!"

A_Nonny_Mouse said...

Well, obviously this "Sly" would have no objection if somebody publicized HIS home address and mentioned what his wife & kids look like.

Right?

Tit-for-tat? Sauce for the goose? Treat others as you want to be treated?

AJ Lynch said...

I have a feeling the libs like Sly are the ones who are gonna start getting the crap beat out of them.

Dad29 said...

Kinda one step beyond 'creepy.'

Seeing Red said...

Remember when kids were off limits? Lefty scumbags just can't resist.



Even the mob had rules about going after children.

garage mahal said...

She should be talking about that crook Walker and his gang of theives!

Perhaps the FBI was just in the neighborhood. I'm sure it's nothing.

DADvocate said...

How long till something like this results in violence, either an attack or in defence?

The libs in Wisconsin have no boundaries nor shame. Leave the kids out of it.

Chef Mojo said...

Perhaps the FBI was just in the neighborhood. I'm sure it's nothing.

See? Garage can talk about Solyndra!

Now, how about Gunwalker and the hundreds of dead Mexicans way down south Meheeco way? Not to mention the dead Americans?

I'm sure BATF, FBI, DHS, ETC were just in the neighborhood, as well.

Patrick said...

Hey Garage: I heard that too - Seems the Walker aide was instrumental in securing loan guarentees for a failing solar panel manufacturer that was a large donor to the Walker administration.

Interesting!

Hoosier Daddy said...

"... The Feds raided the house of a former top aide to Walker this morning...."

Maybe they suspected him of buying a Gibson.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"... I always find it fascinating what righty bloggers aren't talking about though..."

Maybe you need a hobby. I could care less what liberal Bloggers are or aren't talking about.

Trooper York said...

I guess the FBI was ordered to go after the Obama administrations enemies.

Right out of the Nixon play book.

Chef Mojo said...

The Feds raided the house of a former top aide to Walker this morning.

Garage, in the great scheme of things, who gives a shit?

I mean, really? That's the best you have?

Former top aid to the Governor of Wisconsin versus the moral vacuity of a radio shock jock and his posse giving out the address and family information of a sitting congressman in order to harass him and his family?

Nice to see your moral compass is predictably fucked up.

Pogo said...

Sly and the WTDY family stoned are a total class act:

Jan. 17, 2011
Sly Sylvester criticized Lt. Gov. Kleefisch's attempts to move businesses from Illinois to Wisconsin, including references to Kleefisch's colon cancer.

""SLY" SYLVESTER: How amateurish is it to have Rebecca Kleefisch, who, I don't know, she has some like little panty business in her basement or something, I don't know. She's hardly a, she's hardly an entrepreneur. You know what? You know how amateurish that is? Cold-calling?

(Using high-pitched voice, speaking as Kleefisch)

'Would you like to move to Wisconsin? Would you like to move CouponCabin to Wisconsin? I'm Rebecca Kleefisch. I performed fellatio on all the talk show hosts in Milwaukee. And they endorsed me and that's how I became lieutenant governor. And then I got colon cancer and I ran around the state to help people. Even though I have government health care, screw everyone else.'

...

CRYSTAL McKENZIE: You know, it looks like she's wearing a wig because I know she's going through chemotherapy right now, so she may be....

SYLVESTER: I don't think that. That is her TV... that's vapid hair.

McKENZIE: (Laughing) OK.

SYLVESTER: That's her vapid hair.

McKENZIE: (Laughing) I'll take your word for it.

...

SYLVESTER: I had heard at one point Rebecca Kleefisch pulled a train, but that must have been a different story I was reading about.

Crunchy Frog said...

Around here, the imbecilic radio talk show hosts who like to give out phone numbers and addresses are a couple of alleged right-wingers named John and Ken.

They only give out publicly available phone numbers to congressional offices, which are all staffed by secretaries, whose job it is to field phone calls from constituents. NOT home numbers and addresses.

Other than that, nice equivalence, douchebag.

garage mahal said...

That seems to be the answer in the MJS comments as well.

"What about Gunwalker! Solyandra!"

HUH????!@!!

Pogo said...

"HUH????!@!!"

Yeah, you know, the ATF thingy where the US gubmint gave guns to Mexican thugs and criminals, in order to gin up a cause for more gun regs, but they were used to kill US gubmint agents and innocent civilians.

And the trail leads right to Holder, maybe even Obama.

That little story.
Remember?

Christopher in MA said...

"HUH???!@!!"

Turnabout's fair play, garbage. You want Althouse to talk about Walker's aide, I want you to talk about Gunwalker and Solyndra. But while we might speculate as to what the feds could be doing in the former case - though we have no evidence - you won't touch the others with a ten-foot pole, because it might dim the halo of your Little Black Jesus, the SCOAMFOTUS.

In any event, you've succeeded in jacking the thread away from the moral leper Sly. If I were Ryan, I'd blast a road of rock salt in the ass of the first jackhole to dump candy in my yard. And then I'd go to the radio station and introduce Mr. Sly's lower colon to the business end of a Louisville Slugger.

But I'm not Ryan. And Ryan is a gentleman who'll shrug this sleazy attack off. More shame to him.

Well, now we know what lines of code were added last night, while the unit known as Garage was in the shop.

garage mahal said...

Yes Pogo I've heard of the Gunwalker story.

garage mahal said...

That's so awesomely hilarious Sorepaw. Great stuff.

Trooper York said...

On Sons of Anarchy, SAMCRO makes a deal with the Mexican drug cartel to sell them drugs and mule coke up to LA.

Danny Trejo is guest starring. He looks what I imagine the dudes that Obama gave the guns to looks like.

This is a huge scandal if the mainstream press would give it the same amount of scrutiny that it gave to Sarah Palin's uterus.

Not gonna happen.

I keep almost watching SOA if for no other reason than the excellent acting ability I know some members of the cast have. I keep NOT doing it because I hate coming into a storyline anywhere but at the beginning.

I suppose I'll have to break down the do the DVD box-set thing.

Shanna said...

Seriously. Although if anybody wants to reverse trick or treat at my house, I’ll take chocolate.

One also removed a large banker's box and put it in the truck of a car

Was it full of candy?


Ha!

Maybe you need a hobby. I could care less what liberal Bloggers
are or aren’t talking about.


My brother had MSNBC on one day and they started talking about something I’d seen on conservative blogs that was negative towards Obama (solydra maybe?) and I was like “I can’t believe they’re talking about this on MSNBC!” Turns out, he had switched to Fox when I wasn’t paying attention.

ndspinelli said...

Here's a lead on Sly. I see him @ Monty's Blue Plate for lunch fairly regularly, although I've not been there for awhile. He eats a couple burgers, chocolate shake, feeding a hangover. You'll recognize him because he blocks out the sun and he's always looking around hoping someone will notice him. This is the guy who called Condy Rice Aunt Jemima. He is a mamaluke, loser.

Pogo said...

@garage "Yes Pogo I've heard of the Gunwalker story."

You didn't get it from the MSM.

It's one of those Stories That Must Not Be Mentioned.

Despite the obvious parallels to Nixon and Watergate, you won't find a Deep Throat in the FBI, much less a Woodward or Bernstein to write the story.

But they'll gleefully talk about the the Feds raiding the house of a former top aide to a Republican Governor.

No, not connected at all.

Trooper York said...

You should start from the beginning Scott. It is a great show.

Get it on Net Flicks. You won't be disappointed.

garage mahal said...

Ok then.

Scott M said...

I just got a new laptop and so I fired up the Netflix sub last night. I might just do that.

I thought he lived near QP in one of the those pre-fab houses from the 50s.

Would that be the same FBI that hid a Fast & Furious gun at the scene of a crime?

That depends. Is it the same FBI that just raided a wayward solar panel company?

I have to wonder if this didn't cross the line into property damage. In Georgia, those guys would be in some big trouble.

How about when they dress like executives with clipboards, go into random office complexes and start firing people at random, telling them to clear out their desks and leave immediately?

Pogo said...

Do tell, Scott.

Scott M said...

Nope. Under congressional seal for the next 89 years. Right after that, though, a couple of guys we knew in another city got in serious trouble for going door to door early in the morning dressed in prisoner coveralls, chained at the wrists and ankles, knocking on doors and asking for a hack saw.

That's the kind of stuff I always loved doing. Nobody in particular is really the target or gets hurt.

Especially since Federal agencies have become an arm of the re-elect Obama campaign, a la Gibson, Boeing, etc.

BTW - garage, what's your address. I'd like to send you some candy.

garage mahal said...

What does Gibson have to do with Obama getting reelected?

Trooper York said...

If you attack the donors of the other party they will have less dough to spend on the election. They will keep their head down and not get crossway of the government.

It's the Chicago way.

Pogo said...

"What does Gibson have to do with Obama getting reelected?"

Well, true, that was a real dumb-ass move. But it was intentional.

Pogo said...

Thass right, Troop.

FDR showed the way!

This one kinda backfired, though.

garage mahal said...

Wingers are weird.

DADvocate said...

What does Gibson have to do with Obama getting reelected?

You're really that uninformed. No wonder you hold so many stupid beliefs. The CEO of Gibson is a major Republican donor. Martin guitars uses the same wood, supposedly over which Gibson was raided, and weren't raided, but they're a Democratic donor.

Address, please. It's not like I'll be broadcasting it over the airwaves to any psycho who may hear it.

DADvocate said...

I always find it fascinating what righty bloggers aren't talking about though.

I don't find it fascinating what lefties don't talk about, quite predictable actually. It is interesting, but predictable, how uninformed they, or at least you, choose to be.

garage mahal said...

So the theory is Obama had Gibson raided because Gibson is a GOP donor. And that would....!?

Wouldn't explain why Obama is raiding his own donors.

But hey. It sounds baaaaaaaaad!

PLS RETWEET!

BJM said...

What does Gibson have to do with Obama getting reelected?

This is so charmingly naive that I'd love to see the look of shock on Garage's face when he's issued his Prole ID card and e-prolfeeder.

Dustin said...

I knew before clicking that Garage would be here whining about something he insists the Republicans did, completely ignoring the topic.

It's like this is his job. But I realize he's probably just some weirdo.

Paul Ryan's family deserves safety. Those with political differences from him should be patriotic enough to tolerate differences of opinions.

Going to a congressman's house and demanding he get you a job is absolutely insane, anyway. Paul Ryan's plan has been ignored by Obama and Reid, so what the hell is he supposed to do?

These people can't win the argument, so they want to eliminate it.

Of course, the children of the democrat party will pretend this doesn't implicate their party at all. This and Hoffa and Rev Wright... they mean nothing.

But some random guy yelling 'yeah' implicates the entire 'pro life' movement that wasn't even being discussed, right?

DADvocate said...

Wouldn't explain why Obama is raiding his own donors.

Names, please.

garage mahal said...

This is so charmingly naive that I'd love to see the look of shock on Garage's face when he's issued his Prole ID card and e-prolfeeder.

I'm a cynic. I promise you won't traumatize me if you just explain what the actual theory is.

Obama had Gibson raided for his reelection campaign because ______________?

To try and scare Gibson into not contributing?

That still wouldn't explain why Obama is raiding his own donors.

garage mahal said...

Names, please.

I thought I was the one misinformed?

Feds Visit Homes of Solyndra CEO, Execs.

David said...

Adding a little poison (just for a laugh) is all he left out.

BJM said...

I have no idea what the stalking laws are like in WI, but in CA this shit doesn't fly.

A similar thing happened to a colleague who was CEO of a failing, publicly held dot com. An irate shareholder posted his home address, phone numbers, children's names and schools with Google Sat maps to a couple of financial boards with the entreaty that shareholders should go get him.

Dude got himself arrested rickety-tick. It's big mistake to target kids as many laws kick in automatically when minors are involved.

The radio jock may have free speech protections, until someone gets hurt, but the useful idiots who show up at Ryan's house do not.

Pogo said...

Why Solyndra?

Because he's throwing them under the bus, now that they are losers.

Friends of Obama is NFL.

garage mahal said...

Ahhhh. It all makes perfect sense now.

They are stained, so he cannot take their circle jerk money.

Curious George said...

"Pogo said...

No because it is becoming apparent that the Obama administration put pressure on OMB to approve the loan guarantee before they did their due diligence, so Biden could make his little speech. There's no way Obama can put the brakes on anything now.

This is a big fucking deal.

BJM said...

@Pogo

It's so obvious that even Captcha gets it:

Hewho lives by the political donor, dies by the political donor's scandal.

Rick67 said...

I had the misfortune of visiting this Sly's website. Reduced to calling everyone who disagrees with their ideology "racists". One wonders how Sly will squeal(?!?) if what he advocates is done to him. But its so hard to be a classless jerk!

Big Mike said...

Well, I see that garage managed to hijack the thread. Too bad.

Getting back to the Professor's post, my own feeling is that it's very hard for me to feel any sympathy for the UAW workers at the empty Janesville CM plant if they're going to accept the antics of Sly on their supposed behalf. If anyone from the UAW wants to repudiate Sly's antics, I might feel more charitable.

DADvocate said...

Solyndra?

You goota be kidding. There's no equivocal comparison between Gibson and Solyndra.

Obama gave Solyndra over a half a billion dollars of taxpayer money in cronyism at its best. Solyndra squandered it and went bankrupt, which means they had to file papers in Federal bankruptcy court. Which in turn means all sorts of other stuff happens and the Feds will investigate, since the money came from the Feds to begin with.

Solyndra isn't a raid justified using the slimmest legal definition of a "crime," it's Obama caught with his pants down and Federal agencies carrying out their required activities.

Only and idiot or a slime wanting to justify thuggism would try to equivocate the two. And, I'm certainly more informed than you think I am.

More on Solyndra HERE. Read it and weep.

Michael said...

Solyndra would be typical political blunder which would blow over. But for one thing. The due diligence thing. It appears there was little and that it was rushed for the Biden speech. Problem. This calls our attention to the due diligence itself which was skimpy to non existent. An accounting student could have put the brakes on this deal since the accounting firm was all but giving "going concern" flags for the firm. This deal stinks

purplepenquin said...

The FBI just recently started an investigation into Walker possibly keeping people on the state payroll in order to spend their days posting Pro-GOP comments on blogs and websites.

Shouting Thomas just recently started accusing people on the left of being paid to post comments.


Coincidence? Maybe-perhaps, but I can't help but wonder if Tom's house was recently served with a warrant and thus is now trying some sort of preemptive attack before the news starts breaking...

jeff said...

:The truth is that Paul Ryan has no interest in fighting for working families — in Janesville or anywhere else in the United States.

In 2008, the sprawling General Motors plant that had been Janesville's top employer for nine decades was shuttered. Thousands of jobs were lost. Unemployment soared. Working families in Janesville and surrounding Rock County are still struggling.'

Huh. So they want him to introduce legislation to mandate right to work laws, and relief from over reaching legacy contracts? I find that hard to believe. But if he did all this, they wouldn't be broadcasting his address and phone number?

DCS said...

I believe Sly and his apologists want us to think leaving candy on the doorstep is funny the same way glitter bombing is supposed to be an OK stunt. In fact, leaving the candy and making pointed comments about family members is code for "we know where you live and where your kids go, sucker."
