Brody's Notes... Dallas-Ft. Worth Area Radio Host Attacks Ft. Worth City Councilman Joel Burns’ ‘It Gets Better’ Message

By LGBTQNation Editors (Phoenix, Arizona) NOV 13 | You may recall that last month, we reported on Joel Burns, an openly gay city council member in Fort Worth, Texas, who gave a heart-wrenching, impassioned plea to LGBT youth struggling with their sexual identity or facing adversity among their families, community or bullying by their peers.
Burns inspired thousands by sharing what happened to him and encouraging young people with his own personal “It Gets Better” message that has been viewed over 2 million times on You Tube.
But not everyone was touched by Burns’ message.
Dallas talk-radio host Chris Krok at KLIF-AM took to the air recently to criticize Burns for recruiting kids to the “gay lifestyle.”
Using a fake lisp, Krok mocks Burns saying, “Look at me! I Thuffered!”
“Not one gay kid has killed himself in Fort Worth. There’s not some big issue in Fort Worth with this … you’re promoting the gay agenda, it has no business in our city council meeting. You’re wasting our time; you made it all about you. You’re not brave for coming out with this — you are inconsiderate of us for putting this on a priority list way above things that are so much more important,” said Krok.
“If you wanna have a speech to gay kids and invite gay kids to come, you go ahead and do that, brother. But don’t waste our time with this.”
You can listen to Krok’s complete rant here:

This is by far one of the most abominable broadcasts I have had the misfortune to hear. Krok's broadcast is a prime example of free speech being misused to harm others. I'll resist the temptation to call him a Krok of shit because quite frankly, shit is preferable to the anal vomit that comes out of this guy's excuse for a mouth.

I get the distinct feeling that he would say anything to make a dollar. Despicable!

Sometimes it is necessary to disassociate ourselves from evil people, Krok qualifies for that, other than to demand he be replaced on the air waves.
