Where's the First Amendment at WRKO?

Keep John DePetro. Uphold the First Amendment. What's the problem?

So what if
he called gov. candidate Grace Ross a "fat lesbian"! It's political speech, and it must be protected.

Ross is openly lesbian. Her sexual identity is part of her POLITICAL identity. And she is obviously fat. People call others overweight, portly, or fat all the time.

The GLBT activists turned sexual identity into a political issue, DePetro didn't. Isn't Ross PROUD of her sexual orientation? She herself said, “I think he was indeed being nasty. It’s not news to anybody that I’m a lesbian."

So was it only the "fat" part that bothers everyone? There are even "fat" activists out there who've made obesity a political issue.

If he called someone a wacky fundamentalist Christian, would he be fired for that? If he said someone had thinning hair, would he be fired for that?
