hey guys, tuesday my band went on one of our local stations to promote a show tonight when we started joking about our controversial new school superintendent. we just joked and said that he was going to sing a song with us and pay for us to go on tour, then trying to change the subject i said actually we cant stand him (not hes unqualified or hes a moron or he could operate a microwave with a sausage in his hand). the rest of my band kept talking about him but nothing offensive, and finally i got back to promoting the show before the interview was cut short and the owner of the radiostation called yelling at the djs for letting us say things. now, the our friend who helps out and whose mom is on the board for the local nonprofit board-run venue that we play at is mad at us for that stuff and is just snapping at us and saying that we can never again talk about this guy with anybody around. why is everybody mad? most of the town is in disagreement with this guy and when we make a couple of jokes we get the bad end of it, we didnt slander him (i checked we have it on tape) and we didnt oppose his views, i just voiced my opinionby saying, "I cant stand him". he has had various heated personal conversations with teachers leading to their subsequential firings in the middle of a teacher shortage and we are getting all beat up when most people agree with us. maybe if we all acknowledged a political standpoint on the subject instead of being scared of falling advertising rates we would become more unified, thats the reason we got him in the first place, because we didnt check up on the candidates (he got fired or paid to leave the last district he was at for the last 2 years). how can we get our reputation back?
