Mike Gallagher Fights Against Liberal Lunacy

Monday, 08 August 2005 12:00 AM

Mike Gallagher does a lot more than host a talk show. He acts, and when he does he shows just how loony leftists can be and exposes the idiots he targets to his devastating wit.

In a forward to Mike Gallagher's new book "Surrounded by Idiots – Fighting Liberal Lunacy in America," his long time friend Sean Hannity calls him "the quintessential great American," who "skewers liberal lunacy with a sharp tongue and a hearty laugh."

Rather than merely hurl verbal javelins, he chooses an active response to the idiocies he encounters, leaving the landscape littered with embarrassed liberals.

He writes about several of these incidents in his book.

When Gallagher decided he'd had enough of the idiocies peddled by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), he pulled off one of his inspired stunts, which got attention not only here but in Europe as well, and left PETA looking like the idiots they are.

It began with one of PETA's more bizarre campaigns – a drive to get 18- and 19-year-old kids to drink beer instead of milk because they say that milking cows is too upsetting and uncomfortable for them.

Gallagher writes that PETA kicked off an outdoor billboard and magazine campaign spoofing the diary industry's slogan "Got Milk?" by replacing it with "Got Beer?" and went on to place the "Got Beer?" ads in college newspapers and university communities.

"It was as if they never heard of the nationwide epidemic of teenagers who drink, drive and die."

Noting that he is "extremely sensitive to the devastation alcohol wreaks in America," Mike went looking for a way to beat PETA at their own game.

"I announced that I would buy a cow that was scheduled for slaughter, broadcast its ‘execution' on my radio show and donate the beef to the homeless."

Faced with this challenge, PETA went berserk. After all, Mike explained, "a lot of hungry and needy people were going to be enjoying nice, juicy steaks and hamburgers from the slaughtered cow." Mike's idea of broadcasting a cow's death "really drove them wild."

He encountered a panicked PETA spokeswoman during a broadcast and enjoyed her shock and dismay. "How can you sleep at night?" she shrieked. "Have you really given any thought to what the final moments of the cow's life are going to be like with you and your microphones there."

Gallagher kept his promise and broadcast the execution live, announced somberly after the steer's death, "We are now going to feed hundreds of hungry people throughout the Ohio Valley."

The stunt got wide attention, "spreading the message that many Americans abhor the shock tactics of the animal rights nuts," he wrote, noting that hundreds of needy, hungry people got choice, Grade A beef.

There are many such politically motivated stunts recounted in "Surrounded by Idiots," against such icons of the liberal media as the Dixie Chicks, Al Franken, Bill and Hillary Clinton and even the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Rather than spoil the book by telling you all about them, read about them for yourself as Mike Gallagher proves that action speaks louder than words.
