Slime mold comes in all forms. Why look, here's one that's a retired insurance agent!

Back in July while on the road to Oregon, I came across Stephanie Miller for the first time ever in the Arizona desert. Those of you who are not familiar with Stephanie Miller, she has a morning syndicated radio talk show. And I enjoyed it, because it made me laugh at things that usually upset me on other talk shows discussing current events and I appreciated that.

Although we don't have the Stephanie Miller Show on local radio, I've taken to streaming her over the internet often since returning from that trip. I've become a fan. But what I discovered on her website today not only outraged me but scared the hell out of me.

Miller received a very threatening letter from a viewer of a Hannity and Colmes show she recently appeared on. It was from a viewer who took issue with her and the reason I chose not to post his letter was, besides being extremely threatening, it was brutally and sexually violent.

But I changed my mind after hearing Stephanie Miller confront this bastard this evening. Turns out he is retired after running an insurance and investment agency for 40 years. (Which only shows you never know who you're dealing with!)

From Steph's phone call, I gathered he is probably married. He may have a daughter, or if not, a granddaughter. And if so, I would hope the next time he feels angry enough at someone of the opposite sex, he might consider his daughter, or granddaugther before making brutal and sexist threats against females. Here then is his letter to Stephanie Miller. (Any typos are his.)

Saturday - 10/14/06

The Fox Channel
Hannity & Colmes - 9-10PM EST
Attn: Stephanie Miller
Fox Guest & Cindy Sheehan Supporter
Program of Friday, October 13, 2006
1211 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036

Dear Stephanie:

As with Cindy Sheehan the best thing that could happen to you
would be seeing some WONDERFUL activist sticking an AK-47 up your
Glory Holes and sending you into eternity. But this is not a threat
as I am a paci-fist preferring to confront dumb fucks like you two
cunts with words rather than violence. But I would gather my 1st
amendment rights permit me to HOPE (!) and PRAY (!) that someone
decides you're better off as statistics. Honestly, should I hear
of either you leaving this earth prematurely I would initiate a
personal celebration that would make Animal House appear to be just
another quiet Sunday in church.

However, again an exercise of my individual rights even a liberal
Supreme Court can't take away, I will be mailing copies of your
appearance on yesterday's Hannity & Colmes to some WONDERFUL people.

Without including a cover letter and without a return address we
will be mailing copies of your anti-America rhetoric together with
any personal information we can cull off the Net to the following
recipients. Receivers will be families and friends of others lost
in Iraq but who believe their sons/daughters died nobly, others
with a SPECIAL fervor and fire-in-their-belly for this country and
who totally and completely despise renegades as yourself and, too,
several others whose "credentials" I will keep to myself but assu-
redly shall we say devoted people to this country's future. As the
phrase goes we must identify this nation's enemies and though we
keep friends close, we MUST keep our enemies even closer and you
two vile bitches are just that, Benedict Arnolds to the country
who gives you the freedom to embarrass yourselves and make an ass
of yourselves also, and simutaneously.

Therefore, I trust the both of you mother fuckers will continue to
show yourselves on TV shows, exposure to more and more people, as
again not on my hand but by someone who believes in such finelizing
action. So, PLEASE, don't stop, even expand your words of HATE for
America and this Presidency because the more you talk the better
chance my hopes and prayers are fulfilled. Would love to celebrate
another America HATER meets his/her maker.

From the right 'Right,
"Sock" Sokolowski

Here is the Fox program with Stephanie Miller that so outraged ol' "Sock" Sokolowski

And here is brave Stephanie Miller's personal phone call to pissant Sokolowski in which he denies he threatened her (and Cindy Sheehan) with death.

sick, sick, sicko! Ms. Miller must be doing something right, that's for sure. She should wear his scorn like a badge of honor. And why do these pathetic slimy cowards always resort to extremely crude sexual threats? Must get off on the shock value, possibly the only thrill his shrunken little "sock" gets anymore.

BTW, she handled him superbly in that phone call. He thinks it's an "opinion" to death-threat someone? He thinks inciting others to violence is an "individual right"? OMG! Thank you for posting this, dada. The more people who know about it, the less danger this creep poses.

**** on a related note: Buzzflash had a story today about a new start-up liberal radio station out of Phoenix which has signed up Mike Malloy!
**** semi-related: HBO has a special this Thursday "Hacking Democracy" unless Diebold succeeds in getting it pulled. ~~ D.K.

she is an amazing woman..i aspire to be like her...she gives me courage and hope - both of them do

and i hope tha cindy gets that nobel peace prize...

enigma4ever said...

I hope she filed appropriate reports- FBI etc People that make such threats so easily are not usually harmless- someone or people in their lives are suffering. The Small Sock Syndrome is real- small men with small minds critisizing Real Women of Courage...that is the way of it....I am no longer horrified...We all need to be Braver and Stronger....Vote for Change on Tuesday- I am hoping millions turn out...to end this TestosteroneWarhumping Criminal Administration's Regime who have falsely empowered this misanthrope that threatened some fine women....DK thanks for the Hacking Update...

Kudos to you Dada for being one of the Good Guys.....

enigma4ever said...

I sent Keith Olbermann you post today...
watch Countdown tonight...he shares your wrath....
We are in good company with our angst....Blog on commrade..blog on...

dada said...

Oh enigma....I LOVE you....I did watch Keith tonight....and my wife and I exchanged glances as he mentioned Stephanie Miller and the goddamnedmisogynistsociopathicsumbitch who threatened her under the guise of patriotism and family values and my wife and I raised our eyebrows over mouthfuls of Dada's speciality, *enchiladas* with New Mexico chile sauce. Little did we know our shock at his mention of dear, beloved Stephanie may have been due to our dear friend, Enigma! (grin) ... or maybe not....but the fact she mentioned Steph to Keith was music to our ears. Who knows?

Anyway, you know how Steph is always talking about who she's going to marry....like Russ Feingold and others she admires? Well, after discovering her, and then learning of her love for rescued dogs, I told my wife ala Steph Miller, "That's who I'm going to marry!" Bless her heart, Mrs. Dada is so tolerant, patient and understanding...I think she concedes that fact....but ONLY over her dead body, however. Geez, I'm gonna miss Steph's great dogs!

D.K. Raed said...

wow!!! I'm slumped on the couch enjoying Keith, as usual, esp his special comments, when he starts mentioning death threats to a woman talk radio host. So, yeah, I'm sitting up straighter & saying to husband, I bet this is about Stephanie Miller. Sure'nuff he goes on to say her name & I look like a savant just for reading your blog!

You know, Enigma has previously said that Keith reads the blogs, so your influence could be permeating more of those interconnecting spheres than you know, dada. I mean, you skinned that little sumbitch & nailed him up on the wall for all to see.

Just now I played that phone call for husband & he was amazed how cool Stephanie was. I mean considering sockito is an obvious mental case who is fantasizing about her demise, she managed to refrain from spitting back at him, which must have been mighty tempting. She's a real pro.

OK, I'm off to email KOlbermann & thank him for his well-placed outrage, etc ~~ D.K.

enigma4ever said...

So I read the blogs today- and I always head to Mel, Craig's, and Dada straight away...and yeah I was pissed reading about Stephanie and yeah I know all about redneckasshole threats....and I then send it off a copy of Dada's post to Keith with a little note "This woman could surely use an Apology" (...or something much more witty I think)...and then later I am sitting on the sofa with doglet and we are sharing Salsa chips and dip ( aka dinner) and I had been bitching to 6-6 (aka son)about How and WHO needs an Apology- and Bingo Keith let it rip- I about choked to death...
I was laughing and cheering.
Now I do have to confess I send Keith stuff almost every day- I am probally on some kind of Stalker/bloggeress list ( and yeah, I often send snippets of different people's blogs) ....But ever since Katrina I write him, Cafferty and Anderson Cooper - but Keith the most.
And hell, I have to admit He has now surpassed Russ on my " Marry me soon" list...( hehe)
but hell, if he ever comes through Cleveland I sure as hell am going to offer him " dinner". ( I think I might do a Win a Date with Keith Contest over at WS...that might be fun- hehe, esp. if I do the "judging".)
Keith has kept me sane, laughing, and Hopeful this year....
and to be honest so has Your Blog....
You and Mrs Dada have inspired me this year, and just when the coffee is running a bit low I come here and feel enlightened and like I found the warmth of fresh Bialey Bagels out of the oven on Discount Tuesday....sigh....
Many hugs to both of you.....
Keep Storming the Castle....

Pam said...

WOW!! Stephanie Miller is my new idol!! That sock guy has some serious problems. I love how he said "You're entitled to your opinion" but didn't add "and I'm entitled to make death threats." A pacifist MY ASS!

Enigma - I think Keith DID read your message! That is AWESOME!! He's on the top of my to marry list also, if only polyandry were legal!

p/s found you via the lovely & intelligent AZgoddess!

D.K. Raed said...

e4e, you have a "doglet"? All my cats were "catlets"! Alas, right now I'm catletless. And looks like honorable son (6-6) is STILL growing? seems like just a few months ago he was Mr 6-4 ?!? ummm, you know Keith IS available, but Russ will be NEEDING a wife if he intends to pursue higher office, so get busy!! Maybe you & Stephanie & Pam (above) can divide & conquer, heheh. and Prospective Polyandrists notice: take a clue from polygamists & only legally marry one, the rest are spouses by non-legal ceremony, simply "intimate companions" in the eyes of the law. ~~~ D.K.

enigma4ever said...

Well..well..Here Dada posts this great post about Stephanie..and these wonderful women come a visiting.....Wisdom and Courage aflowing...I have to laugh about the Keith thing...cause my son is always saying that"Did you pester Keith today"...it is a running joke...( well, after I wrote Arron Brown all the time and he got canned I think it makes 6-6 nervous...and yes, he is taller than 6-6 now- we stopped measuring...and he wears an 18 shoe- do you know how hard that is?? oyyyyy....Catlets- ah gee....that is nice...) Yeah I think we will have to have a Dine with Keith Contest...seriously this man deserves a dinner....
and hmmm, Russ, well that is another whole dream...
( WTH I am over 40, single and I don't go out- I Blog...so I gotta dream right? How about the others-
Az Godess, Pam ? Dk?...Mrs Dada?....Bottem line dreams are better than the Nightmare we are in...and BTW Keith reads the Blogs- pesty Bloggeress Stalker notes - not so sure...)

hehe.... I really do think he read your post Dada...

dada said...

pam: Thanks for dropping by. And as much as I want to believe Keith visited here, I'm still skeptical. But having said that, if he DID by chance happen by here, it's only because he was pushed in this direction (thanks, Enigma!)

az: I'm with you. I think it'd be a great counter to our current Bush insanity if Cindy were to win a Nobel Peace Prize.

Raed: Thanks for the heads-up on Mike Malloy and the new liberal talk radio. This is really exciting news! I ck'ed it out on the web today.

Ain't this special? O'Reilly has someone get through his screeners who disagrees with him, and he on-air threatens them with the Fox attorneys and truth police, meanwhile Slime Mold literally qualifies for prosecution under terroristic threat laws. I just saw a story repeatedly on the broadcast news about a teenage girl who got a visit from the feds for a video game she had on her MySpace where you could cartoon stab Bush. That she had removed several months before.

Just so everybody's clear -- cartoon stabbing Bush=terrorist threat; actually describing acts of violence and agitating for persons to carry out said actions that would disgust even Ted Bundy=just a joke.

I'm so glad we have people running our country with morals.

Mammas lock yer daughters up.
