    Anyone remember what show that was from? Trying to look it up on Marksfriggin. Howard basically agreed with the guy that he was more PC now by renaming wackpackers like Gary The Retard

    I don't know which show, but it was that shithead Tommy from Malden- I actually think he did it on more than one show.

    • Howard Plays Some Audio Clips And Takes Some Calls. 01/12/15. 9:35am
      ... Howard took a call from Tommy in Malden who wished him a Happy Birthday again. He did that last week too. Tommy asked Howard if he thinks that political correctness is going to ruin the country. Howard said sometimes it's really civility. Howard said sometimes it's good. Tommy said it's not. Tommy said it's free speech. Howard said he keeps cutting him off. Howard said it can be good at times. ...

      ... Tommy said that Gary the Retard should be Gary the Retard. Howard said we can't be sensitive to everything. Howard let Tommy go and played a clip of Riley Martin singing Happy Birthday in an alien language.

    Thanks, seems to be from 1/27

    Howard said he heard that Tommy was bashing him on Twitter. Tommy said he did a little bit. He said he did call him politically correct. Howard said that he's kind of right about that. Tommy said that it bites him in the ass sometimes.

    MF didn't go into detail though I'll have to listen myself.

    Howard has gotten to the point where he just doesn't even give a shit anymore. I get the feeling he feels radio is now beneath him, and any listeners that want to call him out, Howard's like screw it your right. The radio audience is not what he's concerned about anymore, hence the condition of the radio show.

    Freaking sad, freaking sellout!

    Tommy seemed to be trying to commit suicide by Howard for a couple weeks in January. He asked Howard why Elephant Boy wasn't given more than bus fare for his contributions to Lieberman Live. When Howard asked Tommy why he cared, Tommy said he was trying to "help a ni99er out" -- knowing full well that the N-word deeply upsets Howard.

    Listening to 1/27 and 1/12 to get the exact quotes...man 1/27 is tough. He's saying bill maher should blow the corpse of the dead sniper who is the basis for American Sniper. I believe Howard doesn't even know what he thinks anymore. He's publicly apologized multiple times for being such a staunch support of the Iraq invasion..did he already forget iraq has nothing to do with 9/11? Now all of the sudden this sniper is a hero cause he was killing iraqis during an invasion based on a lie? jesus this guy just makes shit up as he goes.

    Yeah, the following week. He'd been calling Howard out on Twitter, and Howard asked him about it. But Tommy squirmed and backpedaled a little, and Howard let him off the hook. At this point Howard can't afford to blacklist a caller with his own theme song.

    Found the exact spot on the 1/27 show (
    ), start listening around 16:30

    (Paraphrased)

    Howard: I got a note you were bashing me on twitter

    Tommy: Yeah a little bit, I said you are politically correct

    Howard: What was I politically correct about?

    Tommy: About Gary the Conquerer, about wendy

    Howard: Oh yeah that's true

    Robin: We're cleaning up our language


    That's the first time I remember him actually admitting he is making these type of changes.
