Shocking audio emerges of radio host telling young gay man to kill himself

Radio talk show host Michelangelo Signoreli tells a young gay man named Wes to go kill himself because he voted for Mitt Romney:

    "It would have been much easier to go to the store and buy some arsenic and make a potion and take it." (2:19)

    "You are the epitome of the low informatin voter. You should not be allowed to vote." (2:43)

    "Go to the drugstore. There are plenty of things you can get. It'll put you to sleep really, really easily." (3:46)
Not only is that advice really, really creepy, it is especially hypocritical since Signoreli recently wrote an article for Huffington Post titled "Shocking Footage Emerges of Mitt Romney Spouting His Bigoted Bile Against Gays (VIDEO)."

What did Romney say in the video?
    Today, same-sex couples are marrying, under the law, in Massachusetts. Some are actually having children born to them. We've been asked to change their birth certificates to remove the phrase "mother" and "father" and replace it with "parent A" and "parent B." It's not right on paper. It's not right in fact. Every child has the right to have a mother and father.
If defending the rights of all children to have a mom and dad is "shocking," what do you call it when you tell a young gay man to go drink some arsenic?
