Skip to comments.Dr. Laura son linked to lurid Web page
Posted on 05/31/2007 8:19:52 AM PDT by bmweezer
The soldier son of talk radio relationship counselor Laura Schlessinger is under investigation for a graphic personal Web page that one Army official has called "repulsive." The MySpace page, publicly available until Friday when it disappeared from the Internet, included cartoon depictions of rape, murder, torture and child molestation; photographs of soldiers with guns in their mouths; a photograph of a bound and blindfolded detainee captioned "My Sweet Little Habib"; accounts of illicit drug use; and a blog entry headlined by a series of obscenities and racial epithets. The site is credited to and includes many photographs of Deryk Schlessinger, the 21-year-old son of the talk radio personality known simply as Dr. Laura. Broadcast locally on 570 KNRS, "Family Values Talk Radio," the former family counselor spends three hours daily taking calls and offering advice on morals, ethics and values. She broadcast a show from Fort Douglas, in Salt Lake City, last week.

I guess her son is a liberal Democrat. Wonder if the MSM will cover up for him?
Apparently, naked pictures of your mom on the The Internets will get to you.
The media will love this one. They hate Dr. Laura even more than they hate the folks who serve in our military.
Getting some payback on Mommy Dearest? Mama Laura is a sadistic, phony fruitcake. No surprise if the son turns out to be the same.
I remember seeing some nude Pics of the good doctor a few years back taken while she was off cheating on her Boyfriend/Husband or whatever.
Article is over a week old. Why post an 8 day old story?
Just to get your goat, probably.
I never cared for Dr. Laura.
She seems inordinately harsh, and very short with callers.
And the “I’m my kid’s mom” thing... please!
I wouldn’t wish this on her, but I’m not terribly shaken to see it happen.
The one of her wearing the dog collar is the hottest, I think.
But, this one - 8 days old rang a bell. Did a search (SOP for all posting) and the exact same article from the same source was posted on the 23rd)
My goat is not gotten, btw, :)
Agreed, my least favorite conservative.
Caller: *weep* “A dear loved one killed himself. How should I cope?”
DL: *paraphrasing* “Suck it up, life sucks.” which is just about ever answer she gives.
I don’t doubt for a second this kid has issues. I feel sorry for him.
The media will leap on this cuz they hate Laura! Anything they can do to trash Laura!
Did he do that?
The photos were taken by an ex-boyfriend well before she was married (college, I think).
Mommy constantly spouting off about little Derek’s virginity must have taken its toll.
I don't like her show but think about who calls in and announces to millions that they are a bedwetter or whatever anyway. They need a stern rebuke.
The pics were released by an ex-boyfriend.
I think he saw those and flipped out.
They won't, because they hate Dr. Laura with a passion. Anything they can do to hurt her, they will.
What makes you call her sadistic?
That was a contention echoed by Army spokesman Robert Tallman, who said "it may be possible that our enemies are actually behind this.
"Our enemies are adaptive, technologically sophisticated, and truly understand the importance of the information battlespace," Tallman continued. "Sadly, they will use that space to promulgate and disseminate untrue propaganda."
**sigh** I have no words
I hope he’s been set up.
I trust the MSM very little
This was last week’s news. The story is moving down the food chain.
Well, it is true that anybody can create a MySpace page. There are dozens of people claiming to be celebrities every day.
I wonder if this was really her son, as he said on there basically that he goes around killing some people who do not deserve it if you read other stories of what he wrote on there. He admits to murder.
“I don’t like her show but think about who calls in and announces to millions that they are a bedwetter or whatever anyway. They need a stern rebuke.”
Some do, but one size doesn’t fit all. She doesn’t seem to tailor her response, it’s the same for all. And she does seem to be a bit sanctimonious to me. In spite of her positive attributes, her negatives cause me to take a little schadenfreude in this case.
How do you know he’s guilty of anything?
DL: *paraphrasing* Suck it up, life sucks. which is just about ever answer she gives.
Sounds alot like FR responses.
Wise people will hold their fire until it is proven this site belonged to or was actively maintained by this young man.
Also, do a little background research on the author. A Dr. Laura hater to the nth degree.
If Derek is guilty then string him up and quick. But something does not pass the smell test just yet.
Oh, and I am not a Dr. laura fan.
I don’t know, but I think Dr. Laura refers to herself as the “proud mom of an Army Paratrooper”.
“That was a contention echoed by Army spokesman Robert Tallman, who said “it may be possible that our enemies are actually behind this”
Probably a real possibility that the kid didn’t post the site.
My nephew had a site on Myspace, in his name, with all kinds of nonsense on it, and he didn’t make the page
It’s not hard to post in someone else’s name, just sign up as someone else, Myspace has no rules about that.
Didn’t Obama recently have a problem with a site in his name that wasn’t his?
I just logged into myspace...here’s a Hillary Clinton site...but I’m pretty sure she’s not the one that posted it.
This is a shame. Pray for Dr. Laura.
‘Apparently, naked pictures of your mom on the The Internets will get to you.’
And she lectures others on how to raise their kids?
I’ve had the same view of this woman for years now.
She was living with a married man...for over eleven years when those pictures were taken.
‘And the Im my kids mom thing... please!’
How’s that working out for the good Doctor?
‘The photos were taken by an ex-boyfriend well before she was married (college, I think).’
The ‘ex boyfriend’ was married, and she (dr fraud) lived with him for eleven years while he remained married to somebody else.
I’m not surprised the hypocrite raised a kid with serious mental issues.
I told him it would piss you off. Glad he posted it.
Indeed. If my son pulled something like this, I’d be devastated. If someone else posted something on this order in his name, I’d be thoroughly outraged. Either way, liberal media will use it to their advantage, with no thought of the consequences to our troops.
I agree. Dr. Laura is quite mean and psychologically destructive at times. I’m not sure why anyone calls her.
She does force people to look straight at their problems and tries to emphasize maintaining the family above all else, which is good. She’s got quite a strong female following.
The tough love thing really wears though, especially when her lack of compassion and deep seated anger comes through.
Dr Laura is one of the loudest national voices espousing family values AND personal responsibility. She is not perfect nor does she claim to be. She speaks plainly, bluntly and gives no quater for those callers that always want to blame someone else for life’s problems.
In my book that is one solid woman.
Uhh, credited to is not the same as doing. What makes me think this was a set up?
If it was a set-up, why hasn’t she (or he) angrily denied it? Instead, she has suspended her column.
Got the hots for her, hm?
