State Sen. Raymond Lesniak has formed a "Coalition Against Bigotry and Hate" with several religious leaders, equal-rights activists and ethnic groups to oppose NJ101.whine's radio hosts Carton and Rossi, saying they are spewing hate and bigotry almost daily.
The response from the knuckle-draggers was just what you'd expect:
Carton said, "We are surprised and disappointed that at a time when we should be uniting communities, Senator Lesniak and his Coalition Against Free Speech have decided to pick the eve of the holiest of holidays to further divide us as a people.
Was it uniting communities to call Polish people "Polacks" who supported Nazis in the Holocaust- or did it serve only to divide us?
Was it uniting communities to slam Edison mayor Jun Choi, make fun of Asian accents and residents- or did it serve only to divide us?
How about picking on Mary Jo Codey, who wanted to bring attention to post-partum depression by being honest about her own journey through it? Where's the uniting force in that?
Y'know, now that I think about it, Carton and Rossi are a uniting force in the community: they've united the New Jersey Catholic Conference, Garden State Equality, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, the New Jersey Council of Churches, the Lutheran Ministry in New Jersey, the Interfaith Dialog Center, the Gender Rights Advocacy Association of New Jersey, the Anti Defamation League, the Polish Legion of American Vets, the Polish American Congress and the Pulaski Day Parade Committee.
All of those organizations are part of the Coalition Against Bigotry and Hate.
