Dan Savage, Trayvon Martin Deserve To Die, Conservative Talk Show Host Stan Solomon Claims

Dan Savage has certainly sparked his share of conservative ire over the years, but now, a right wing talk show host has gone even further by calling for the controversial lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights activist's death.

As Right Wing Watch first reported, Stan Solomon made the shocking plea as part of a special "Race in America" program to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington this week.

Calling Savage a "faggot" and a "horrible, awful, terrible excuse for a human being," Solomon noted, "I hope he dies -- he probably will -- of every disease known."

He then added, "By the way, I’m sending him a fire hydrant for his birthday, I’m hoping he’ll sit on it; he’ll slide all the way down to the ground."

It isn't the only eyebrow-raising claim Solomon made during the broadcast. He also slammed slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin as "a thug that deserves to be dead."

Of course, Solomon is no stranger to anti-gay proclamations. Earlier this year, he slammed President Barack Obama as "a wussy guy who throws a ball like a girl" and implied he was gay.

"If he could get away with it he’d be in drag," he said, according to Right Wing Watch. "I don’t think he’s a man at all and he leads a whole group of men that are that way.”
