Flashback: ‘Communists!’ Howard Stern vows never to vote Dem again, even ‘if God becomes a Democrat’

The Obama administration’s new plan to monitor newsrooms had the media in a frenzy this week, and it has a well-circulated anti-Democrat rant from famous shock -jock Howard Stern getting a new round of attention.

Stern made big news by slamming Democrats and the FCC in 2008, saying “I have vowed I will never vote for a Democrat again.” The 6-year-old diatribe is being re-circulated all over social media and conservative websites over the past few days.

Sirius Radio host Howard Stern is incensed that Democratic members of the Federal Communications Commission oppose his network’s upcoming merger with Satellite XM Radio. As a result, he vowed never to vote for another Democrat again.

Although the merger passed FCC scrutiny, it was done against the wishes of Democrats, who the “shock jock” called “communists” and “gangsters.”

He described a phone conversation he’d had with his agent earlier on his Friday show to sidekick Robin Quivers.

“I go, ‘That’s it!’” Stern said. “[I] go, ‘You know what Don, I’ve voted Republican and I’ve voted Democrat. I have vowed I will never vote for a Democrat again. I don’t give a [expletive] – no matter who they are. I don’t care if God becomes a Democrat.’ I said, ‘I backed Hillary Clinton, I backed Al Gore, I backed John Kerry. I am done with them.’”
