Quinn called NOW the "National Organization for Whores," said columnist Fatimah Ali should "get an American name"

››› ››› GREG JOHNSON

On his syndicated radio show, Jim Quinn referred to the National Organization for Women as "the National Organization for Whores," and said of Philadelphia Daily News columnist Fatimah Ali: "[Y]ou know, Fatimah, what's your real name? Come on, seriously. I mean, get an American name, will you, if you want to be an American." He then asked: "You don't suppose she's a liberal black Muslim, do you?"

On the September 3 broadcast of The War Room with Quinn & Rose, co-host Jim Quinn referred to the National Organization for Women as "the National Organization for Whores." Quinn stated: "Yesterday, I said, I wonder how long it's going to be before one of these Alinskyites -- formerly known as Democrats -- one of these Alinskyites out there suggests that Sarah Palin is not really a woman. Remember [Sen.] Kay Bailey Hutchison [R-TX] was a female impersonator, according to the National Organization for Whores?" Later in the program, Quinn aired a clip of Fox News host and Washington managing editor Brit Hume discussing a Philadelphia Daily News column by Fatimah Ali. Following the clip, Quinn said: "[Y]ou know, Fatimah, what's your real name? Come on, seriously. I mean, get an American name, will you, if you want to be an American. You don't suppose she's a liberal black Muslim, do you?"

As Media Matters for America has previously noted, on the August 11 broadcast of Quinn & Rose, guest host Mike Pintek questioned the authenticity of Sen. Barack Obama's birth certificate, saying: "I still keep wondering about his birthplace and his birth certificate. I'm still not convinced that he actually was born a natural-born citizen." Additionally, during the August 27 broadcast, Quinn introduced a segment about Sen.Hillary Clinton by playing audio of the Elton John song "The Bitch Is Back." The next day, Sen. John McCain was a guest on the program.

Talkers magazine ranks Quinn & Rose number 54 on its "Heavy Hundred" list, which it describes as the "100 most important radio talk show hosts in America" based on Talkers' criteria.

From the September 3 broadcast of Clear Channel's The War Room With Quinn & Rose:

QUINN: The Democrat [sic] Party is now the "Alinsky Party." Yesterday, I said, I wonder how long it's going to be before one of these Alinskyites -- formerly known as Democrats -- one of these Alinskyites out there suggests that Sarah Palin is not really a woman. Remember Kay Bailey Hutchison was a female impersonator, according to the National Organization for Whores? Remember that? Well, James Lewis, American Thinker: "is Sarah Palin really a woman?"

HUME [audio clip]: A Philadelphia Daily News columnist is warning that if John McCain wins the November election, quote, "look for a full-fledged race and class war fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness, and hopelessness." Fatimah Ali'spiece is headlined, quote, "We need Obama, not 4 more years of George Bush." She writes that Republicans have overstayed their welcome and the country may be headed for chaos. Quote, "Plenty of Americans would rather stay in their dream state than recognize the poverty sweeping across the country right here, right now," end quote.

QUINN: I'll tell you what, folks, it's the great depression. It's bread lines, soup kitchens. Fatimah Ali, writing in the Philadelphia Daily -- you know, Fatimah, what's your real name? Come on, seriously. I mean, get an American name, will you, if you want to be an American. You don't suppose she's a liberal black Muslim, do you? I'm just curious.
