Radio Station to Magic: Our DJ's Are Morons

10/10/2008 6:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A radio station in Minneapolis is cleaning up the mess left by an idiotic pair of DJs who theorized on-air that Earvin "Magic" Johnson has been faking being HIV positive. Bad taste, line one!
Earvin Johnson
KTLK has released a statement to TMZ saying, "KTLK recognizes the seriousness of the health issues presented by HIV / AIDS -- and the great work that Magic Johnson has done ... We regret that some off-hand remarks by commentators on KTLK did not reflect that. To better inform our listeners and employees, KTLK will be airing HIV/AIDS awareness public service announcements, and will be reaching out to Mr. Johnson to get his thoughts on education efforts."

This once again proves that AIDS is no laughing matter ... unless it's on "Family Guy."

Why would anyone in their right mind make up a story about being HIV positive??? Sometimes I wonder if the qualifications for being a radio jockey are merely having a pulse and breathing. These idiots don't deserve even the negative publicity this is getting them. Magic didn't knowingly put other athletes at risk and retired as soon as he found out. He started playing again after getting the virus under control and the OK that the risk was practically non-existent. Furthermore, the other players knew what they were risking, yet played with him. His personal business notwithstanding, I met Magic and he is a very nice and down to earth person and he DOESN'T DESERVE the HIV virus, no one does. You can knock a person's lifestyle all you want, but saying they deserve a potentially fatal disease is loony, un-Christian, morally wrong, and in direct contridiction of the very Bible you hold so dear. Didn't God say "Judge not, that ye be not judged"? Sheesh, so many fake Bible thumpers and hypocritical people out there.

its sad too see there arent that many comments............. as for the dj's what a tasteless means to get ratings.... the radio station should fire them..............but they probably will not........it seems that in todays america their is a lack of social responsibility.............and every time we turn around there is too much disregard for humanity ........... what a terrible world we have created and allowed .............. hiv/aids is certainly not a joking subject..........its serious problem in OUR WORLD.

Actually it was South Park that made fun of Magic having AIDS. It was just on this past week.
That's probably where the guys got the idea for their bit.

Obama Hussein Barak is the Anti-Christ    

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.

Pause a moment, reflect back.

These events are actual events from history..

They really happened!!!

Do you remember?

1. 1968 Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male extremist.

2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnaped and massacred by Muslim male extremists.

3. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim male extremists.

4. During the 1980's a number of Americans were kidnaped in Lebanon by Muslim male extremists.

5. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim male extremists.

6. In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim male extremists.

7. In 1985 TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a US Navy diver was murdered by Muslim male extremists. ( remember the pilot of this flight was from Richmond, MO)

8. In 1988 , Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim male extremists.

9. In 1993 the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim male extremists.

10. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim male extremists.

11. On 9 /11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the W orld Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim male extremists.

12. In 2002 the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim male extremists.

13. In 2002 reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnaped and murdered by-- you guessed it-- Muslim male extremists.

No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people... Absolutely No Profiling!

They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

According to The Book of Revelations:

The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40's, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, he will destroy everything.

And Now:
For the award winning Act of Stupidity Of all times the People of America want to elect, to the most Powerful position on the face of the Planet -- The Presidency of the United states of America .. A Male of Muslim descent who is the most extremely liberal Senator in Congress (in other words an extremist) and in his 40's.

Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason ???

I'm sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the 'unknown' candidate Obama...

Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves -- if they have any such sense.

As the writer of the award winning story 'Forest Gump' so aptly put it,
'Stupid Is As Stupid Does'

I live in the Twin Cities metro and listen to Langdon & Chris everyday......give it up Earvin and stop playing the victim card like so many other people that get "offended" from everything. It's called the 1st amendment, look into it. Maybe if you didn't live your life so carelessly it wouldn't be a problem.
