Conservative College Radio Show Shut Down, Cops Called, Over 'Tranny'

A conservative radio show hosted by students at a university was shut down in November.

Morris, MN – A station manager at a college radio station called the police to help shut down a conservative radio show on the University of Minnesota-Morris campus (video below).

KUMM’s station’s manager interrupted the radio show and told the hosts of “Deplorable Radio” that their use of the word “tranny” was a Federal Communications Commission violation - it's not.

She said that they had to stop the show, and told student hosts Brandon Albrecht and Taylor Lehmann to leave the station. The station manager brought a university police officer with her for backup.

The station manager was wrong. There is no specific list of words banned by the FCC, but rather a broad guideline that relies greatly on common sense.

Specific words are often banned by individual broadcasting companies, and we haven't been able to find a single broadcaster that specifically bans the use of the word "tranny."

Surveillance video of the November incident was recently released by The College Fix.

The video showed the radio hosts joking about how the protesters on their campus are nicer than other Antifa groups because there aren’t enough of them to start real trouble, and everybody knows everybody else.

One host used the word “tranny” a couple of times while discussing various protest groups.

“You know, you can definitely, you see one tranny that’s trying to punch someone,” he said. “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.”

A few minutes later, the station manager went into the broadcasting studio with a campus police officer and shut the show down, telling the hosts they had broken FCC rules by using the word "tranny."

“That’s a specific hate speech word never allowed on radio, in the same way you can never say c**ks****r on radio,” she said on the video.

On the video, the hosts looked shocked.

The student hosts asked the station manager if it was really necessary to call the police, and said they would have left if asked.

She replied that it was necessary because they were breaking the law, and she needed to file a report.

The College Fix identified the woman as the station manager. The KUMM website lists Carter Young as the station manager.

The student hosts were told their show had been “permanently suspended” following the shutdown, but the radio station had to back off and change their tune, according to The College Fix.

The radio station’s executive board sent Albrecht and Lehmann an email admitting the station manager’s mistake. They said the “language concerns have been determined not to be in violation of FCC community standards.”

Instead, the board cited other reasons for cancelling the show, including that it did not play "at least 2 new songs per hour," City Pages reported.

University officials later said that no FCC violations occurred, but that the show was cancelled due to complaints from listeners.

They also said there were allegations that the hosts were broadcasting while under the influence of alcohol.

Typical commie shit bag liberal university.
Only support the freedom of speech when its for their cause. When they want to suppress they will abuse their power and supress individual freedom. Those kids should sue the police department the school and the school radio manager for violating their rights with malice. And making false police report stating they broke the law. And violation of their due process.
Make that school pay.

In human history, all socialist tyrannical regimes used this exact same tactic in order to cause societal chaos based on the ideology that the only absolute truth and law is that there is no absolute law and truth, and they are absolutely certain that this ideology is "The One Truth", and if you don't comply, you'll be arrested and jailed for insurrection.

It may have concerned the manager there would be the threat of a complaint against the station with the FCC concerning the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act of 2005. A Law, the result from Janet Jackson's 'wardrobe' malfunction causing the likes of Kansas' Sam Brownback to push for legislation that held broadcasters responsible for any incidents even if they are unwritten. The ACT went on to include spoken words that would implicate insult to any group or individual. A segment of the audience represented by the ACLU for instance which may have been offended by the program's content regardless of intent. The general manager of the radio station and its license-holding authority under the act can be held accountable for up to $325,000.00 per individual fine issued by the FCC as a result of the ACT.

If the ACLU representing the college campus transgendered community files a complaint about the language used that the Supreme Court has already found to be articulate as being used in "hate speech" and "hate crimes" for each use of the word, causing a separate incident or offense, totaling a considerable fine.

The notion the group was allowed to operate a radio stations control room without some licensed oversight is questionable. The team taking part in the discussion at very least should have had a period of training on FCC RULES AND REGULATIONS AND WORKPLACE SENSITIVITIES. If you are going to be broadcasting regardless of your message, there are going to be boundaries, mainly when the airwaves are public airwaves not privately owned.
