Me on KABC Los Angeles Today (John Phillips Show)

By Debbie Schlussel

I’ve been attending to some legal and website-related matters for most of the day, but stay tuned as my movie reviews and a few other things will soon be up before I leave for the Jewish Sabbath.  I also have a big announcement, next week or the week after, so stay tuned.  In the meantime, you can hear me on KABC radio 790 AM in Los Angeles, this afternooon/evening at 7:05 p.m. Eastern/4:05 p.m. Pacific on “The John Phillips Show,” today.  We’ll be talking about Jaycee Dugard and Elizabeth Smart and my column on the self-Kardashianization of these former kidnap/rape victims.  Listen live here at the appointed time.

Awesome. Your work deserves radio/tv exposure.

Can’t wait DS, should be very interesting.

Debbie how come haven’t been going onto the mainstream conservative talk shows? Are the conservative host afraid of something that’ll you say about someone or something? Are the right wing talk show hiding something and not having you on their show(s)?

I look forward to that broadcast! I know of him as Tammy Bruce always talks about him and has him on sometimes.

Sean, I can’t speak for DS but I used to wonder what you asked myself (since I first heard DS loooooong ago on Howard Stern) but I no longer wonder because over the years I have seen many of the so-called Conservative talk show hosts are NOT the warriors I initially thought they were. And this year alone, I have seen that these talk-show hosts can be clique-y…not in the hanging out way but very few will take a stand because they don’t wanna be “persona non grata” in the Conservative talk-show host-land.

I mean, half of these peeps are still holding on the the old “moderate” Moooooslim meme. THAT is the one that annoys me the most. It’s a vital issue that needs to be talked about and many hosts will not go there. It’s dangerous and annoying and PC!

I certainly saw who was who when DS exposed the Sean Hannity concert scam. It’s not cool to call out Liberals on their crap and then not call out Conservatives on their crap when they are being dishonest or moving the goal-post.

I find that DS is conservative and isn’t phony about it and she is willing to challenge others when they act in ways that discredit or are NOT Conservative. I appreciate that!

And most of all to me it seems she doesn’t have the time to try to convince these fools who are STILL beholden to PC sensibilities on “sensitive” matters to wake up and smell the coffee on coffee that should have been smelled years ago. We are down to the wire now and if one hasn’t figured it out by now they WANT to be deluded!

This year has been very enlightening for me. I’ve seen so-called Conservatives back down when they should have gotten louder and stronger and I have seen many, many Conservatives NOT stick up for a fellow Conservative when the Lefty attacks got pretty hot. I didn’t like what I saw this year. I am paying attention and taking names, too!

DS would never do that and THAT is why I come here.

    Skunky, not all talk show hosts believe what they say. Quite a few are just doing a decent or not so decent acting job in order to stay on the air. They are appealing to a market in order to make money. Rupert Murdoch, even though he is not a media personality, engages in the same sort of thing with his News Corporation. He is not a conservative in any way, but he was aware that there was a substantial and relatively untapped market. The downside with such people is that when things become difficult, they will revert to their normal natures. Debbie herself discovered how unconservative and unethical News Corporation was some years ago. You will note this with the selection of contributors and hosts. People who sincerely hold conservative views do not last long on FNC. E.D. Hill comes to mind, and Glenn Beck(with his problems and whether you like him or not)a had relatively short shelf lives on FNC. But, this contrast becomes clearer with the longevity of Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. Bill O’Reilly has shown himself to equivocate on issues such as Immigration and Islam, and this waffling is not due to any reconsideration of the underlying facts or beliefs he has previously held. He has shown himself to be far too susceptible to outside pressure. Someone who is in fact far worse than O’Reilly is Sean Hannity. Unlike O’Reilly, he trumpets his traditional conservatism on the air in ways that are practically embarassing. However, Hannity is more than happy to toss aside such principles as he purports to have when he invites a notorious anti-Semite, such as James Trafficant on his radio and television programs on the same day. Sean Hannity has also taken advantage of his position in order to promote charities that spend more on administration and charitable work, such as the Freedom Alliance(which takes care of Sean in various ways).

    These are the things to remember when you are surprised that a radio talk show host who claims to be a conservative either does a 180 degree angle turn or remains silent during a controversy.

      Very true Worry. I think Bill O’Reilly is one of the most fraudulent and annoying these days. I don’t watch him anymore and when he had a radio-show I was very annoyed and disgusted by the way he treated his female co-hosts (E.D. Hill was one and Lis Wiehl was another) was condescending and gross. He’s an absolute pig (as Andrea Macris found out) and a phony.

      He was briefly on a local show this week and I heard the podcast and that fool (who is NOT fooling me) actually said he didn’t think Obama-Putin was anti-Catholic. More of BOR keeping it in line because he knows Obama-Putin is black and doesn’t want to be too critical. What a buffoon. Those who know Obama-Putin is a dangerous crypto-Marxist never pay attention to his damn colour so it shows O’Reilly CAN’T help but think of it! I can’t believe anyone still finds him credible, that splotchy, old freak!

      I am listening to DS live now. Get ready for the dopey, non-independent thinking concern trolls coming here for a hit and run of self-righteousness. So predictable.

      Skunky on March 16, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    “half of these peeps are still holding on the the old “moderate” Moooooslim meme. THAT is the one that annoys me the most.”

    Skunky, I assume the reason why so many conservative talk show hosts are still doing the “moderate-muslim” talking point is probably CAIR will shake-down their advertising to promote their show, that’s what I believe. It’s not just the left wing who’s being influenced by “Arabist”, but also some on the right wing are to be influenced by the Arabist (I’m NOT anti-arabic people, I have a few friends who are arabic) and the muslim lobbyist.

    And there are “moderate-muslims” that exists here and there, but they have to express their voices of the EXACT teachings of islam and what it stands for and represents. I believe thier not speaking out because they’re afraid that CAIR and other islamist-muslim jackasses in this country will intimidate them and “persecute” them right here in the USofA!

I’ll be tuning in, for sure.

Debbie is a brilliant columnists, but she is more fantastic on tv/radio because we get more Debbie mediums at once, plus it showcases her ability to think on her feet and how sincere and bright she is.

Just a great, great interview, although hearing those horrible women like the one who threatened to kill Debbie “with a baseball bat” was hard to take. It’s frightening to hear these “average”, small-minded, hostile little people.

John Phillips seemed innocuous enough, but he was a bit of an ass with his faux “shock” and trying to wring extra hysteria, but I guess that’s his job to try to keep his popularity up.

Also, I made it on the air and got a “right on!” from Debbie for suggesting that, by the reckoning of the “anthropologist” caller, that the kidnapper is the actual “hero” for choosing to not murder these kidnapped kids.

I love Debbie. What *she* does is heroic.

DS_ROCKS! on March 16, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    DS_ROCKS I heard your call and you did a great job too! You sounded very articulate and were intelligent and sane unlike the other sad lot that got on. So cool you got on!

    You are correctamundo on John Phillips too. He’s the type of host I don’t waste my time listening to anymore because I would rather learn than just listen to dopes call in with stupid crap to say. I got to know what a tool he could be when he was one of the idiots on talk-radio falling for the Leftist meme on Herman Cain.

    Skunky on March 16, 2012 at 8:33 pm

DS_Rock are you sure and serious that one caller on John Phillips’ show made a threat to Debbie and wanted to do physical harm to Ms. Schlussel? If that’s the case, than Mr. Phillips’ production crew can trace that caller of that woman who threatend DS’s life and call that woman’s local authorities and arrest that woman for making a threat. It’s no longer about freedom of speech/freedom of expression when you make threats towards anybody, it’s the equation of yelling “fire” in a crowded movie theather! If that’s the case, than that woman who made a violent threat to Debbie ought to be arrested, that woman is a very dangerous person who also the equvilant of the islamist-jihadist who make threats to everybody on a daily basis.

Sean R. on March 16, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Sean, that idiot caller said IF she were in the room with DS that she would have a go at DS with a baseball bat. It was all moronic, over-emotional, retarded bluster.

    That old crow couldn’t counter what DS’ thesis was so she did what all dumb idiots do in lieu of thinking her way out of it or deconstructing DS’ point of all agro and went to outrage and potential violence because her dried up raisin of a brain couldn’t process what she heard.

    You know you’re dealing with drooling sub-IQ animals when that happens (with apologies to animals…)!

    Skunky on March 16, 2012 at 9:16 pm

Skunky, as I said in my message about an hour ago, Mr. Phillips’ production crew ought to trace that caller and contact that woman’s local authorities and have that sociopath asshole woman arrested for making a threat, not just any threat, but making a violent threat on the air-waves.

I’m going to give John Phillips an email and demand that his production folks trace that caller and contact the authorities to arrest that woman, what she did was step out of line by making a threat to Debbie’s livelihood. And since DS is an attorney, she can prosecute that woman in US courts and DS will win that lawsuit!

Big announcement? Please don’t do anything crazy like getting married & breaking my heart Deb…..

@Skunky – I thought I sounded like a goofball, but thanks. It was fun voicing support for Debbie’s argument and against the majority, foaming-at-the-mouth, idiot callers.

@Sean R. – I think what Skunky said is accurate – that the woman said “if I was in a room with you I’d hit you with a baseball bat” or something to that effect, which sure sounds threatening to me – if someone said that to me or a loved one, I’d definitely take it seriously.

The host did interject to the caller, saying “whoa, whoa! You can’t say that..” but then let her to continue talking.

I think your idea of emailing them and demanding action is a good one, but I fear that’s the double standard against conservatives – it’s okay to disparage, mock, insult and threaten or assault us because the “mainstream” ideology dictates that we’re “asking for it” and you can’t help “normal” rage or a violent reaction against we “haters.” Makes me sick.

DS_ROCKS! on March 16, 2012 at 10:47 pm

If listening live is/was not an option, it looks like you can use the same link to get to archived John Phillips shows. I haven’t found the podcast with Debbie yet, but will keep trying.

Lynne on March 17, 2012 at 9:26 am

    Lynne, look for the LARRY ELDER SHOW podcasts as JP was filling in for Larry Elder.

    Skunky on March 17, 2012 at 10:13 am

Cant wait to hear you on my drive down from L.A to Orange County today.
I love bragging to all my conservative pals that I grew up across the way from you. You do a awesome job. Keep it up and please be careful
