On Thursday April 19th media personality David Bloomquist aka "Bloomdaddy" released a blog slandering and discrediting coal miners worldwide. Mr. Bloomquist personally attacked the families and the coal miners. Bloomdaddy's blog was as follows:

"If I see one more sticker that says "Proud Wife of a Coal Miner" I'm gonna go crazy!!!!! Hey ladies...congratulations. I'm sure you're proud of him....but I don't care....and I doubt anyone else does either.

Congratulations....you're married to a guy who works a job that nearly every other walking...talking..breathing human being....this side of Stephen Hawking....COULD DO!!!!!!!!! Now I know this is going to come off as harsh....but I don't care because it needs said. There is nothing special about being a coal miner! Period. IS IT TOUGH...DEMANDING....HONORABLE WORK? ABSOLUTELY!!!! But it's not up there with Navy SEAL...astrophysicist...or host of the Today Show. It's not like someone with a GED...2 arms and 2 legs couldn't do it. With that said...could I do it? No...because I'm allergic to manual labor and I'm soft....so there ya go.

But seriously...quit bragging that your old man is doing something 95 percent of the world's population could do! As a matter of fact.....I believe coal mining is done in most third world countries by 13 year old kids....so there ya go....and I swear to God the day I see a "Proud Wife of a Stay at Home Dad" sticker.....I'm gonna run somebody off the road.

This blog created MAJOR outraged to the families of miners and to the coal miners. Many will refuse to listen to WWVA or any Clear Channel stations until Bloomquist is released from his position. Coal miners risk their lives daily and while he may have the right to freedom of speech he does not have the right to sit in a cozy office behind a computer that is powered by coal and our hard working coal miners. As a VERY PROUD daughter of a coal miner I ask as do others to release Mr. Bloomquist from his position at your radio station. Though he may have issued an apology that is clearly not good enough.

      I'm signing this because I believe coal is an important part of our energy supply and shocked by what this idiot wrote about coal miners. I hope somebody runs over Bloomquist on the road. I'm so sick and tired of these libtards who think everyone thinks like them. They are so out of touch with the heart of America. It's time we start speaking up and fighting back to get our America back. And I say Merry Christmas too!!

      Because coal is a vital part of the US energy plan. And it provides JOBS! Could I be a coal minor? NO WAY! I have the upmost respect for coal miners (all miners). They do a dirty, hot dangerous job!

      Fire Bloomquist NOW!

      Some of out here in the west still make a living in mining, and its not a jub just anyone can do. Sitting behind a microphone spouting your vile ignorance is. People like David Bloomquist ar a blight on America and need to go.

      I support coal miners 100%! It is people like Bloomquist that make me want to puke. Does he not know where the power comes from that allows him to live comfortably. Mr. Bloomquist, go live in a cave for about a week and see how nice that is. Idiot!
