Fake Obama Stickers Ignite Controversy For KNZR's McKay

BUCKLEY Talk KNZR-A/BAKERSFIELD host JAZ MCKAY has ignited controversy again, this time at his page on the station website, where he posted parody OBAMA bumper stickers from a political satire website that take the OBAMA sticker design and add racially inflammatory subheads.
The fake stickers, from IMAO.US, all show the OBAMA logo and "OBAMA '08" but add lines like "Kill Whitey!," "Yes We Can ... kill white folks," and "Hope. Change. Dead Honkeys," with the original postings suggesting that they be distributed to drive liberals crazy by pairing OBAMA's "hope and change" campaign theme with racist slogans they wouldn't know were fake. The result of MCKAY's posting of the "stickers" was denouncement by local Democratic leaders and TV coverage by the local ABC and NBC affiliates.
"It's ... a ... joke!," said MCKAY to NBC affiliate KGET-TV. "It's a joke! Please! Get over it!"
