Student Radio Hosts Yanked Off Air for Using Word ‘Tranny’

d

(The College Fix) The University of Minnesota-Morris has threatened a student radio show with cancellation after one of the hosts used the word “tranny” on-air, with campus officials offering several shifting reasons for pulling the show from the airwaves.

The College Fix has obtained exclusive video of the moment when the students were pulled from the air during the middle of their show.

“Deplorable Radio” is a weekly show on KUMM hosted by students Brandon Albrecht and Tayler Lehmann.

Albrecht told The College Fix in an email that the programming is “a mix of politics, music, and some random musings about current events locally and around the world.”

The duo was notified of the cancellation two weeks ago after Albrecht used a controversial word on-air to refer to transgender individuals.

During a discussion about the university’s lack of “Antifa” violence, Albrecht said the campus was too small for a potential violent activist to hide his identity.

“You know, you can definitely, you see one tranny that’s trying to punch someone,” Albrecht told The Fix he said on-air. “You know it’s automatically that one guy that you know I’m talking about. I bet you know. I’m not going to dox anybody and name them on air. But you two know if I say the tranny who looks like he’s going to punch someone. Yep.”

“About fifteen minutes later,” Albrecht told The Fix, “the student station manager came into the studio with a UMMPD officer and told us to leave. She said we had violated FCC law by saying a word that was never allowed on air, ‘tranny.’ So we packed up and left the studio.”…

    Another collegiate example of shutting down free speech. She kicked them off, because she didn’t like their politics not for a word they used. Besides; what the heck are we supposed to call them?

      Duh….whats free speech…..the year is 2017……when did it end ,what ever it was…..

  • bob breglio

    What’s wrong with calling a spade a spade. Tranny is a perfectly acceptable word to describe a gender confused individual who is suffering from a mental illness. The gender “confused” should go back in the closet, where they belong.

    • Firesign Bozo

      Heck, being old enough to remember walking through several feet of snowflakes, let’s hope the radio host was discussing auto transmission repairs rather than the transmission of STDs, Hep C, or sexual preferences…welcome to the new millennium and glad to be old enough to not have much more of it to stomach. Think I’ll watch the original, unedited Blazing Saddles on VHS tonight and laugh wholeheartedly in the dismissed DJs honor.

      The wacos don’t like the word spade either…..Soon our language will consist of yes, maybe , I love communism, freedom is wrong ect……Caution: The language police are watching…..

    • Exactly. How should we address them in this laughable politically correct time? Genitalia corrected Americans? If you told me back in the 70’s that this country was going get this bizarre I’d have said you were crazy, yet here we are.

  • midogman

    maybe the manager is the tranny.

    The fact is “tranny” is not in the FFC law because when the FFC came to be there was no such thing. Plus the FFC does not make laws, they make rules, congress makes laws.

    One of the saddest lies in America today, is that Americans have any freedom of speech left at all.

    So does that mean an auto show that uses the word tranny to refer to transmissions is violating FCC rules?

  • Larry Wilson

    LOL….all the words they CAN use now and this one can’t be used. Oh well….kiss that #1 Amendment good bye.. We all know the other one the liberals want to,take away. If you can just read peoples mind they will arrest you for thinking the words next.

    • R G

      Larry Wilson, please stay right where you are and remain calm. This is the “Political Forum Typing Police Squad (thinking division) Obviously the chip in the back of your brain has malfunctioned and a special repair crew is on its way to “correct” this problem. Leave this forum immediately and talk to no one. “EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE” ;-).

    Since when is “tranny” an offensive term? They used to use it all the time.

    • Jonah Hirsh

      Yeah, in reference to automotive transmissions. But don’t you EVER call a ‘tranny’ something it calls itself.

      It can. You can’t.

  • truthwanted

    “normal” these days in communication is to shut down/censor, when the truth is told. If you find somewhere on internet, radio, etc. that welcomes the truth, you’ve found something worth paying attention to. Liars who censor the truth, aren’t worth your time! Try Dinesh D’Souza, Thomas Sowell, and many others. It’s easy to spot the truthful, among the many liars and lie-lovers.

    • Suzanne Duncan

      The Doctor of Common Sense was awesome on youtube, and they shut him down completely☹️

  • Norm Heller

    You know if they had said “white tranny” it would have been accepted. That and “Christian tranny” Universities are far too left. Why would anybody want to attend?

    • Americans have been indoctrinated slowly but surely to accept this way of life by the left. We have imans teaching at our universities openly stating that islamics have the right to take all our possessions, property, even our lives. I saved a page off the net from one teaching in Tennessee. This country is way off kilter thanks to hussein obama.

      • Norm Heller

        Flyby….Exactly. The direction America is going in scares me. I hope President Trump can help get America back on course. Political correctness needs to be ended.

  • Xntryk

    Reference George Carlin, tranny is not one of the seven words that cannot be said on air.

    • Jonah Hirsh

      EGGS ACKLEY!

      It’s bogus, and the poor radio guys were too naive to know that.

    that is a load of crapola, tranny is not a bad work an not prohibited or should not be.

    This is a violation of their first amendment rights! Perfectly okay for liberals to say what they want, for blacks to use the n word but no one else, and for others to blatantly spread lies to harm someone’s character or reputation. The university officials are the ones to threaten for infusing their will upon the rest of society.

    Just wondering, why is it OK to call the President’s family names, post pictures assassinating our President but it is not OK or politically correct to call other people names ? Conservatives are called deplorable but you shouldn’t call Liberals snowflakes, minorities seem to get all the benefits and didn’t earn them while the Government wants to take all benefits away from those that pay for the them. Why do Liberals, crooked or not, always stay in Government while Conservatives are thrown out. Now I’m not saying either is right, just wondering……
