For the most part, KFI 640 AM radio personality Tim Conway Jr. (pictured) modulates his anger. But last night, during his show’s “News Bender” feature with announcer Aron Bender, he went on a tirade against recently released American hikers Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal.
Upon learning that the pair, together with previously freed border trekker Sarah Shourd, had made a supportive appearance at Occupy Oakland, Conway Jr. launched into it:
“Oh God… I wish they were back in Iran. You know, this is unbelievable. We spend so much time and so much money trying to get those ungrateful F’s out of Iran, and they come back here and the thanks we get is [for them] to join those other losers at Occupy Wall Street. Screw them! I hope they go back to Iran… God I hate ungrateful people, I really do. Punks. Punk-ass b*tches.”
After break, Conway Jr. continued to rant, encouraging listeners streaming KFI from Iran to come over to the U.S. and grab the hikers. He also wished that for just one segment, he was on satellite radio, so he could properly “blast away at those idiots.”
