Jay Severin, the fiery right wing talk show host on Boston's WTKK-FM radio station, was suspended yesterday after calling Mexican immigrants "criminaliens," "primitives," "leeches," and exporters of "women with mustaches and VD," among other incendiary comments.
Heidi Raphael, a spokeswoman for the station, said Severin had been suspended indefinitely from his afternoon drive-time show. She declined to say which of his comments - made since an outbreak of swine flu was linked to Mexico in recent days - sparked the suspension.

He’s says that stuff every day — has for as long as I can remember.
Yet Perez Hilton keeps his radio and tv gigs with no worries.
Never mind the accuracy of his remarks...they weren’t anti-Mexican, they were anti illegal immigrant.
I think we’re clearly heading for the Fairness Doctrine — full reign given to Left-wing haters like Perez Hilton, restrictions placed on Conservative voices.
Hey, not all of the women have mustaches. Other than that he is closer than many on the left feel comfortable with. Swine Flu, just infecting the people the domestic flu won’t.
Using such incediary language againt immigrants, not illegal immigrants, but immigrants leeches is so useless. Did it move any cause forward?
What’s he trying to do? Reconstitute the “Know Nothing Party”?
Too bad. He can be insightful. He should know the lay of the land better.
Wish I could post pics, cuz the one titled “Warning, keep Sharpies away from mexicans” is hilarious!
You must be in Lafayette.
Were they auditioning for the new Star Trek movie? Dang!
looks like the first Community Review Board is up and running....
The other night I heard him say that the business of Don Imus threatening to shoot him if he did not get off of the stage (St. Patricks Day broadcast from Boston) was unsettled business, and that we would be hearing about that soon.
Severin has not been back on the air since.
Did it move any cause forward
It might if the Legal immigrants would stand up and fight against these leeches which are causing Americans to say what they really mean. Lets stop this PC BS.

If Severin wasa legal immigrant, his rant would have meant something. It was, unfortunately, just incendiary.
“My kids’ school is falling apart thanks to illegals.
I’ve been saying for years this criminal invasion would be heading to all states. Yet conservatives blindly kept electing officials like Jorge Bush.
Sounds like a management dodge.
I had to look this one up:
Resolved Question » Why Do Mexican Girls have mustaches? Why do all mexicans girls grow thick black ugly mustaches? And why do all the mexican dudes grow out there black mustache? 2 months ago
Best Answer - Chosen by Voters Some girls develop a moustache, just like boys do. Facial (and also body) hair on women comes about in the same way as on men because of 1) her body being sensitized, before you were even born, to testosterone -- doesn't happen to all girls, but does to many 2) her body producing high levels of testosterone The growth rate and coarseness of the hair depends on just how much testosterone is circulating in her bloodstream. It's more common among some ethnic groups than others, for women to grow a moustache. Among some ethnic and cultural group it's considered normal for a woman to wear a moustache. For example most middle-aged Russian peasant women wear a moustache without embarrassment, as, for that matter, do a great many middle-aged German women. It's rather expected in those communities that women of that age will wear a moustache. 2 months ago
Still no resolution to Jay situation; VB filling in today.
“”WTKK and Greater Media value an open and vigorous dialogue, but we also strongly adhere to basic principles of civility, common decency and respect for all cultures. We believe Jay’s suspension is the best way to uphold both of these corporate policies. WTKK Management met with Jay Severin and his agent today. He will continue to remain on suspension until further notice.”
Of relevance. Apparently one of the activists who got him off the air.
