Do KLZ radio hosts know the difference between protecting consumers and killing them?

I spend a lot of time criticizing conservative talk-radio hosts, and some people think I'm beating my head against the keyboard.

Too bad for me. Here I go again.

I can't accept that KLZ host's Ken Clark and Jason Worley agree with Sen. Ted Harvey when he says, on the radio, that Rep. Morgan Carroll's bill requiring hospitals to post a list of services that they do not provide is like "putting yellow stars on the door of religious hospitals."

Even if you disagree with her bill, proposed legislation like Carroll's and Nazi Germany have zero in common with one another.

You may think it's ridiculous that I even write the above paragraph, but that's what we bloggers have been reduced to, particularly because the legacy media is mostly ignoring the Colorado GOP's Nazi talk this year.

The Nazis killed people and Carroll's bill informs them. Carroll's bill would've helped consumers make a purchase. That's it.

Even if you're anti-abortion, Carroll's bill can't be remotely linked to genocide in any way.

So, if you're Ken Clark and Jason Worley, how could you possibly listen to this exchange without objecting?

Sen. Kevin Grantham (at 16:30 in the podcast):  "Ken, I kind of wonder if Patrick Malone would have made the same statement, or did even ask the same question to Rep. Carrol when she was running her Senate Bill 93, wondering whether she is going to have a legacy... or she's worried about her legacy as a bigot for what she's doing to hospitals and to private religious hospitals.  Doesn't that make her a bigot as well?" 

Asked to explain, Grantham said that SB 93 would require "religious hospitals to post the services they do not provide," which would be a requirement targeted specifically at catholic hospitals. This is not correct, since it would apply to all hospitals, but Grantham maintained that the bill was targeted specifically at abortion issues and other life issues.

Later, in a discussion about how the Democrats' strategy on civil unions will backfire, Harvey said:

Sen. Ted Harvey (at 39:32): I don't like to repeat the negative and talk about what their talking points are.  And what my talking points are is that this is an attack on religion.  This is [an] attack on the right of conscience, and the ability of people to exercise their faith the way that they believe is best for them. And I think that the people of faith are seeing this for what it is, and it's a direct attack on them and they are now not sitting on the couch, not sitting in the pews, and just trying to live their lives and take their kids to school, and go to work and do those kinds of things. They are truly scared of what this is we're talking about. We're talking about an entire party in the United States that thinks it's okay to force people of religious faith to do something against their religion. And that's never happened in the United States before.  You heard Kevin [Grantham] talking about Senate Bill 93 where it forced hospitals to put on their door a yellow star, for all practical purposes.  To say, 'this is who we are, and we have to tell you who we are.'  Never in American history have we had a major political party say that that's okay.  And that is what you are seeing right now. And people of faith across the country  are rising up and saying, 'No, not in our country.' SB-93 is like putting yellow stars on the door of religious hospitals.
