Free Speech, Hate Speech -- Same Dif, Right?

Folks in the Bay Area may remember JV & Elvis from their decade-long stint on Wild 94.9. After getting fired from that gig two years ago, they moved the act to New York, where they're broadcasting stuff like this.

If listening to that doesn't get you feeling sad or angry enough, then maybe you'd like to head over to the Speak Your Mind post at "The Doghouse with JV & Elvis" blog (scroll down a ways).

Hope I didn't put too much of a damper on your day.

Update: I didn't give much context when I originally put this up, so here are a few links from The New York Times and the Organization of Chinese Americans that should help clarify things.

Update 2: The comments on the Doghouse blog have been disabled,
because the moderator decided that commentors have shown that they "obviously can't have intelligent discourse and feel the need to resort to violent threats."
