Where’s Bob Grant when we need him?
No one in the media these days has the courage to call the thugs rioting, looting and burning down buildings what they are.June 15, 2020 12:12 pm at 12:12 pm #1872483The FrumguyParticipant
There are plenty in today’s media that call it as it is. Mark Levine, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ben Shaprio and locally, there’s Mark Simone, amongst others, all speak out with the truth.June 15, 2020 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #1872561
Frumguy: The hosts you cited may be good but, honestly, none of them are on the level of Bob Grant. Rush is excellent, and may the RBS”O grant him a refuah shelaimo, and like Bob is an Oheiv Yisroel.
But Rush is a completely different cup of tea and style than Bob. He excels in different ways and is very helpful, maybe even more helpful, to America. But Bob had his niche and no one has yet filled his big shoes.June 15, 2020 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm #1872566PekakParticipant
I still remember when he was forced off the airwaves. Jay Diamond got his slot and Sean Hannity got Jay’s. Jay has since moved on and Sean is nationally syndicated so I wouldn’t exactly say that we’re “orphans” .June 15, 2020 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #1872657commonsaychelParticipant
Bob was his own man in many ways, he died in 2013.

Bob Grant was an institution, indeed. Mario, azendeme…
Fake fraud phony, Get off my phone!!
But what’s the point of this post, eh?

Michael savage had the President on yesterday. No one in radio is as consistent as he is on conservative ideas. He backed Trump before the other GOP RINO hacks came around to support Trump.June 16, 2020 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1873251☕️coffee addictParticipant
Sean Hannity was up there firstJune 17, 2020 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #1873799
Bob Grant referred to New York City’s African-American mayor, David Dinkins, as a “washroom attendant.” Is that what we need?
As for Grant’s whereabouts, I believe he died a few years ago.June 17, 2020 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1873837
Dinkins was a horrific mayor. Calling him a washroom attendant was too nice a description. He deserved a much worse name despite it being accurate that he was a former washroom attendant.June 17, 2020 11:15 pm at 11:15 pm #1873854HistorianParticipant
Bob Grant…on the radio, can not forget him. Nostalgic.June 17, 2020 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm #1873864HistorianParticipant
D Prager and M Medved are very convincing. ..June 23, 2020 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #1875754
Joseph: If you think David Dinkins was a lousy mayor, you are free to say so, with or without reasons. If you do not understand what is wrong with calling an African-American mayor a washroom attendant, you are remarkably … uninformed.June 23, 2020 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #1875789commonsaychelParticipant
@Huju, Bob Grant’s comments were mild compared to the racist anti white drivel I use to hear on WBAIJune 23, 2020 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #1875807GoldilocksParticipant
Huju: I have no memories of David Dinkins and therefore cannot comment on the kind of mayor he was or wasn’t. However: If someone was, in fact, a washroom attendant, is it so terrible to refer to him as such? I grew up enjoying a Miami Boys Choir song where the former President Carter is openly referred to as a “farmer”, and I never saw anything wrong with that. In fact, I still don’t.June 24, 2020 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1876184MosheFromMidwoodParticipant
I think Mark Levin comes pretty close to Bob Grant. He fiercely and courageously tells it like it is.June 25, 2020 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #1876805☢️ 🚭 ☣️ Rand0m3x 🧠🕴️🎲Participant

Where’s R’ Yisrael Salanter when we need him?June 26, 2020 1:25 am at 1:25 am #1876825
Rav Yisroel Salanter would have very strong critical words for a sheigetz anti-Semite like Dinkins, who literally has Jewish blood on his hands.
Calling him a washroom attendant would’ve been too nice a description.June 26, 2020 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #1877085SchnitzelBigotParticipant
I’m not the only one here that listens to WBAI?June 29, 2020 11:43 am at 11:43 am #1877608n0mesorahParticipant
We do not need the late great Bob Grant for the word thugs. Both Trump and Obama have used it. In the media, Laura Hollis has some pointed articles on the topic. Bob Grant was good only needed if you couldn’t read. Coffee Room posters are literate. (I am disagreeing with Health on this last one.)June 30, 2020 11:55 am at 11:55 am #1878078
To commonsichle: I listened to WBAI for about 5 minutes. I think the “B” stood for “boring” and the “I” for ignorant. The “A” … never mind.June 30, 2020 11:55 am at 11:55 am #1878079
To Goldilocks: I made no comment on David Dinkins’ performance as mayor. And if you don’t know the difference between calling an African American mayor a washroom attendant and calling a former farmer a farmer, you should attend the sensitivity class with Joseph.June 30, 2020 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #1878128
Huju: I give that class. I’ve put you down for the next session.June 30, 2020 12:18 pm at 12:18 pm #1878123GoldilocksParticipant
Huju: If you want to give such a class, I am willing to attend.
Can you start the class by explaining the difference between calling a former washroom attendant a washroom attendant and calling a former farmer a farmer?
