In a segment KENN’s radio’s “Painful Truth” show Oct. 12, host Jeremy Osborn squawked “blame the Jews,” and then he said, “Very few times on the face of this planet has there ever been a group of people who have cried out for their self destruction.”
Who would these people be?
“The Iranians,” he said.
“What have they contributed to the planet in the last….”
Then he said that Iranian women and children are also crying out for their own destruction because Iranian women “breed the new ones and the children will grow up to become them.”
Then Osborn said: “When you irradiate cancer, do you leave the young cancer cells alone? You irradiate them all.”
I emailed Osborn, whose show airs in the four corners area, to find out if he had an explanation for his comments, and I did not get a response.
But he did address my question on his radio show Oct. 20. He said:
Do I have an explanation for these comments as delivered and do I stand by them? I hope that I have explained myself to you. Do I stand by them? Why not? Since I don’t remember exactly what I said. But like I said, you’re going to take the comments, I’m sure… I am going to go check out the blog now. Bigmedia.org, I’m going to check it out. Talk show host wants to irradiate women and children in Iran. I am sure that is what the headline is going to be. But whatever. If you hear the show on a daily basis, you’ll understand what the comments are coming from. It’s like the Bible, you cannot just crack open the Bible, read a verse and think you know the whole book. Right?
He said I would take his comments out of context.
I really wanted to prove him wrong, but between the squawking, rambling, and leaps of logic, I couldn’t find much context.
You often seem like you’re entering another world when you listen to a talk radio show, and this show is a good example of talk-radio un-reality. But I’ve included his entire response below, in case you can make better sense of it than I can.

Partial transcript of KENN’s the “Painful Truth” with host Jeremy Osborn, Oct. 20, 2011
OSBORN: I’ve got an e-mail here that I got to share with you.
LOGUE: Oh really?
OSBORN: Hello Sean Jeremy Osborn. I blog in Denver. [Gives the blog website.] I heard a segment of your radio show and you started by squawking, “[squawk noise] Blame the Jews” and then you said Iranians have cried out for the self-destruction. Then you said the Iranian women and children should be included among those Iranians because Iranian women bread new ones and the children grow up to become them.
LOGUE: Right. Then you said when you irradiate cancer do you leave the young cancer cells alone? You irradiate them all.
OSBORN: I remember that part.
OSBORN: Do you have an explanation for these comments as delivered? Do stand by them? Thanks in advance for your response. Jason Salzman.Well Jason, I hope you’re listening because I am not going to respond to your e-mail in e-mail because A) I don’t know who you are. I’ve already sensed you’ve taken my comments out of context. I don’t know what your agenda is but let me address squawking blame the Jews. When we do the “[squawk noise] Blame the Jews, blame Bush, [squawk noise] millionaires and billionaires, tax the rich. We do that because that is the broken record, same parroted response you always get from anybody on the left.
OSBORN: The Wall Street protesters are out there blaming the Jews. The signs are out there. So, hence the term [squawk noise] blame the Jews. Presidential Obama has been an office now for nearly three years. [squawk noise] Blame Bush. Everything is still Bush’s fault. In fact, I have audio coming up here from Joe Biden.
OSBORN: Where he continues to blame Bush. So that is where [squawk noise] blame Bush, that is what the parrot is. The parrot is just, that’s the left. You guys are a broken record out there. Same old thing. [squawk noise] Failed economic policies of Bush [squawk noise]. Millionaires and billionaires [squawk noise]. Corporate jet owners…That is where that comes from. So that is where the blame the Jews thing comes in. I don’t remember specifically what I was talking about. I am sure I did say that. But not in an effort to blame the Jews for anything but as in parroting what the people on the left are saying. It’s always the Jews fault. You are always blaming the Jews. I then said, “Iranians have cried out for their self-destruction.” Hmmm, did I say that? Did I say that?
LOGUE: What, I’m sorry.
OSBORN: That Iranians have cried out for their self-destruction?
OSBORN: Did I say that?
OSBORN: OK. Plausible. I’m sure I did. Not remembering exactly what the story…ohh, I remember what the story was. Oh yea, when we uncovered that plot to execute some crimes on our soil. I’m certain I didn’t go out on… I didn’t spin the wheel of destruction here in the studio. Give me a wheel of Fortune, but spin the wheel of destruction here. We will spin the wheel here this warning. Let me show you how to show doesn’t work. Just look at this fabulous showroom full of prizes and the big prize wheel were we spin the wheel of destruction. Here is the lovely Vanna White. Ok Vanna, spin the wheel. [Wheel spinning sounds] Micronesia! No, that is not how it works. I have a problem with how the Iranians conduct themselves on the world stage. I have a problem with a Grand Po Ba Pork Chop over there…Commine or Khamenei or whatever his name is, makes his comments. I have a problem when Ahmadinejad makes his comments.
LOGUE: Its official. Gadhafi’s dead.
OSBORN: It is official? Where you confirming it at?
LOGUE: A national transitional council…
OSBORN: What web site are you getting the information from?
LOGUE: This is on MSN.
OSBORN: Ok, all right, that is all I needed to know… [indiscernible]… new ones and the children grow up to become them. I am sure that I probably said that too. Because you always hear that on the left. You always hear the, “oh, what about the innocent women and children.” There are no innocents.
LOGUE: Wait, in the…
OSBORN: There are no innocents. I’m sick and tired of hearing that term. You have a government that is an open supporter of shady stuff all around the planet.
OSBORN: Sure why not. Where do tomorrow terrorists come from?
LOGUE: Middle East?
OSBORN: No, they come from people. People that breed have kids that grow up to be terrorists.
LOGUE: Well, yea.
OSBORN: Sorry, it is a painful truth. Where is the majority of the terrorism coming from on this planet right now? Is it coming from Guatemala?
LOGUE: Not so much.
OSBORN: Is it coming from Belgium?
OSBORN: Is it coming from New Guinea?
OSBORN: Ok, thank you. “Then you said when you irradiate cancer do you leave the young cancer cells alone?” Yes, that is exactly what I said. And I believe I peppered that with the comment here is reason 8,497 why I will never be president. I make that comment a lot. And by the way, when you do treat cancer and you’re going through radiation therapy, the radiation doesn’t leave a little cancer cells alone. Does it? Do I have an explanation for these comments as delivered and do I stand by them? I hope that I have explained myself to you. Do I stand by them? Why not? Since I don’t remember exactly what I said. But like I said, you’re going to take the comments, I’m sure… I am going to go check out the blog now. Bigmedia.org, I’m going to check it out. Talk show host wants to irradiate women and children in Iran. I am sure that is what the headline is going to be. But whatever. If you hear the show on a daily basis, you’ll understand what the comments are coming from. It’s like the Bible, you cannot just crack open the Bible, read a verse and think you know the whole book. Right?
LOGUE: Not even close.
LOGUE. Nice try.
OSBORN: I do not come on the show everyday and say, “Why haven’t we dropped the bomb in K-Ran?” That is not what the show was about.
OSBORN: And you pull anything out of context, you can pull the president’s words out of context and make them sound good. Oh, kind of like the media, how they do anyway. So yea, those are my words and my explanation.
LOGUE: That is my story and I am sticking to it.
OSBORN: I’m sure made the comments about the women and children as a part of a…I’m sure I asked myself a question, “Oh, you can’t drop the bomb. What about the innocent women and children?” So again, don’t pull the comments out of context. If you’re going to comment on my comments, make sure you understand the whole picture. I hope I’ve done a better job painting it for you and Jason I thank you for your e-mail.
LOGUE: You are a charitable artist.
OSBORN: I am?
LOGUE: I’m kidding. I’m just giving you crap.
OSBORN: [Squawk noise] Blame the white guy.
LOGUE: Yea, it’s because you’re white.
OSBORN: No, I’m African-American. Stop disparaging me. You know that to be true.
OSBORN: That is the Painful Truth and you will have to deal with it. I’m Sean Jeremy Osborn.
