#34 Lars Larson

“This is Lars Larson of The Lars Larson show. To reach our show call 1-866-Hey-Lars”, lars, lars… I believe the word “lars” should be the new blah, blah, blah. Any poor soul who has listened to The Lars Larson Show will find 79%* of what he’s saying B.S.

Our #1 radio bully began his broadcasting career at the age of sweet sixteen in Tillamook, Oregon (famous for cheese, coincidentally enough). After attending the University of Oregon, he continued to build his gabtastic abilities in such urban markets as Eugene and later Spokane, WA. With his experience growing, Larson returned to our sweet state to dominate AM airwaves ever since. In 2000, The Lars Larson Show was created to honor his shocking ability to draw audiences throughout the state.

As a conservative talk show host, Larson has rubbed elbows with some of Oregon’s finest conservatives and pissed off 95%* of Oregon’s liberals (which is basically everyone in the state). Representing the right on the left coast, he has attacked and drawn controversy over his antics against state and federal politicians. In 2007, Larson publically aimed his AM-radio gun at Governor Ted Kulongoski in suspicion of Ted’s involvement with the Neil Goldschimidt case. Whether or not Kulongoski helped cover up Neil’s love for teens has been debated and investigated. The fact that no one in Oregon respects Larson’s opinions to investigate the “evidence” he brought forth, makes me laugh; proof Lars really has pissed off the entire state of Oregon!

However, Larson did not stop with just our political representatives. A concealed weapon permit has provided Larson the tool to prove just how nutty he is. Any person that physically threatens his family, Lars will reciprocate with lethal force. With the inordinate amount of L-arsonists, I’m shocked he hasn’t killed multiple people. Also, you know that you’re a flashpoint when your radio station is hit by a car, and the first thing people think is that the driver must be a disgruntled Lars listener!

Its a shame there isn’t a reality tv show covering his daily interactions with Oregonians. I feel like it would be a combination of Tyra/Ted Nugent type dramedy. Sadly, Larson hides in Vancouver, WA which is one large dumpy Republican refugee camp.

*83% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

    Lars isn’t real

    Shitty driver and a shitty human being.

    Guess I should check my spelling and grammar a little before posting. Oh well my time is limited.

    If accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior is all it took to get into heaven, Adolf Hittler could have made it.

    The teachings of Jesus Christ trump anything you might be creative enough to create enough to bolster your views.

  7. 9 Tim A. 12/21 at 1:56 pm

    Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, says in the Bible, “Beat you swords into plowshears.” He don’t say anywhere in the Bible,”Beat your plowshears into guns.”
    He also says, “Blessed our the peace makers.”

    My advice to the haters would be to show a little class. I’m all for opinions & criticisms, but name calling? Really?

    I don’t think Lars Larson is always right, and I wholeheartedly agree that he has tendency to bully. But to be fair, he brings up many critical issues to the States’ attention, and he is a pretty good debater.

    I see many people on here who are critical of the claims he makes on the show, but I don’t see any of you calling in to his show. Bottom line, if you have something to say, call in with facts to back up your case. Otherwise, it is just blah-blah-blah to me. Most “naysayers”(not all, but most) on his show do very little to impress me, and I’m a pretty open-minded person.

    • 12 Ben 12/30 at 7:00 am

      Sensationalism and narrow-mindedness do not equate to a good debater. Lars Larson is a thoughtless jerk who fails to understand that the goal of a good debate is to change the mind of your opponent. The tactics Lars Larson uses seem to always fail in that regard for the obvious reason that he is insulting and confrontational. It’s not his fault, and I don’t hate him. I think of him as an indicator of how so many humans simply do not understand how reason and logic work.

  9. 13 Sam Loftus 04/11 at 8:15 pm

    Yeah, he is one of those pseudo celebs who thinks he can get away with bad driving, and bad manners. Don’t ring up his groceries, I can tell you from experience his wife is nuts and she will go postal on you from some imagined affront you commit on her by not double bagging her groceries, and Lars will back her up like they expect everyone to fawn all over them. I apologised to the bagger for them because I was so ashamed of the humiliation he suffered at their hands.

    ” pissed off 95%* of Oregon’s liberals (which is basically everyone in the state).”

    How false is that statement? Oregon is pretty evenly divided and we just had one of the closest governor’s elections in recent memory. The Willamette Valley is probably 60-70% liberal. The rest of the state is 80-90% conservative. Thankfully Dems have slowly been losing power and votes in this state at the state level (legislature and so on). Next election we might see the Republican capture the house and that nut David Wu voted out as he should have been in Novemeber had the liberal press in Portland not protected him.

    “A concealed weapon permit has provided Larson the tool to prove just how nutty he is.”

    Any of you geniuses have a rebuttal for Lars’s rationale for advocating concealed carry?

    • 16 Ben 12/30 at 7:02 am

      If I was as big of a jerk as Lars Larson, I would only feel safe leaving the house armed. He has made a lot of enemies.

  12. 17 Sam Loftus 12/13 at 11:20 pm

    Lars Larson is an opportunist. He lives and breathes his career. He was a democrat until 1996 when he got his first taste of the power of the right on the radio. He has no life. He is currently married to a woman 15 years his junior who calls him Daddy. They are both obnoxious snobs who would do anything to get their names in print, or faces on TV. They both have faces fit for radio. This “son” of theirs they keep harping about who is a Marine that Larson will refer to as “overseas” is a stepson of Tina’s that the two of them had no hand in raising, and he is stationed in Japan. I call that low. When I think of the families who have kids who are serving in harms way, or have lost their kids while they were serving our country, it makes the Larson’s lies despicable. And whatever you do, don’t wait on Tina Larson at the grocery store, she will swear at you like a truck driver if you don’t ring her up fast enough, or dress you down for not pandering to her enough. It is embarrassing.

    The photo of Lars above — I notice he’s holding his gun in a really stupid way — with his hand over the barrel. Duh.

    • 19 Sam Loftus 12/19 at 2:49 pm

      Yeah, he is not really a “seasoned” hunter. He hunts with affluent fans who supply him with the guns and ammo. He is a techno nerd who carries a gun and has a big booming voice. Not your regular guy who hunts

  14. 20 USMCvet 05/18 at 1:26 pm

    Goddamn punk, I would love put two bullets in his head. Show him how to use the gun…and what a REAL US American patriot who defends this country is all about. He is a wuss and can’t hold a candle to a US troop who fights for the freedoms he obliterates everyday. Wonder if Palin would put crosshairs on him too….eh! what’s the use…don’t need it. Hehehe!!

    • 21 Sam Loftus 12/19 at 5:48 pm

      Yeah, Palin would have no time to waste with Mr. Larson, other than they assemble on the same side of issues. She is the real thing. He is a pretender radio talk show guy. He has never served in the military and the step son he is so fond of bragging about is in Japan

    • 22 Tea Party Rod 03/27 at 1:18 am

      USMCvet?

      Really? You don’t talk like any of the USMC vets I know.

    • 23 Ben 12/30 at 7:04 am

      In Lars case, ridicule is a much more effective weapon. If someone shot him he would become a martyr.

  15. 24 Publius 02/11 at 2:49 pm

    Lars is a badass.

    • 25 ACH 04/19 at 9:19 am

      The whole state is NOT liberal! The libs have a majority simply because of PORTLAND and Eugene (lib town USA). As one who really likes Lars Larson and listens to him daily, I think the writer of this article is living in their little world surrounded by libs to reinforce the dillusion of what America should be. Lars Larson has not pissed off 95% of libs but 100% of them. Of course a liberals answer to the dilemma of Lars Larson is to cry “Fairness Act” and remove him from the airwaves. I say,”Long live our freedom and Lars Larson” who stands up to the socialistic liberal agenda!

    • 26 Ryan T. 04/20 at 1:45 pm

      LOL! Ach, I guess you didn’t read the other comments.

    • 27 Martin 06/04 at 12:50 pm

      Dur-da-dur.

      1. It’s the “fairness doctrine” and it’s not FCC rule anymore, ergo guys like Lars. That and the radioactive butt-faced inducing swamp he crawled out of. Just a lame ass making money off the fact that most of America like their political views spoon fed and don’t know what a logical deduction look like. I listened once and he stated that because Valerie Plame’s husband also believed there were WMDs in Iraq, that’s proof that W didn’t lie.

      Non sequitur — look it up.

    • 28 Ben 12/30 at 7:05 am

      If you mean badass in the sense that he talks out of his ass and most of what he says is bad fiction, then you nailed it.

  16. 29 chris 10/29 at 1:43 pm

    If you wouldnt protect yourself and your family from harm, and yes I mean shoot them, you are a dumbass. Its to bad oregons economy is the way it is, run by a bunch of morons that cant figure out they are the cause. all they are worried about is how to protect you from yourself, and save the planet. gas prices on on the rise, i have my own long haul truck, here we go again, fuel is over 3 dollars a gallon on the east coast, i am suprised you liberals arent saying it bushes fault again, god forbid(oh yeah i forgot most of you dont believe in god) you say any bad about obama, he cant have anything to do with it. a black MUSLUM running the country and a dumb pollock(not all are dumb)running the beautiful state of oregon,both are democrats, we are all in trouble!!!…..GO LARS LARSON…..KEEP REPORTING ON THE SHADY THINGS THE LIBERAL SCUM ARE DOING TO RUIN THE COUNTRY AND STATE

  17. 32 Dave 09/21 at 2:17 pm

    Yes Matt, obfuscation is a tactic that Lars employs often. Anytime a caller has Lars on the spot, as it sounds like you did, he quickly weasles his way out of that spot by changing the subject or focus of the conversation altogether. He often does it in a sly way, so that the non-critical thinking listener (i.e., most of Lars’ audience) won’t notice it. But occasionally, he just does a complete, unapologetic 180 on the conversation.

    He did this to me once, too. We were talking about the legality of marijuana and alcohol, and I had Lars up against a rope where he couldn’t logically continue on the same train of thought without completing blowing his own argument right out of the water. Sensing this, he COMPLETELY changed the subject. And when I asked him, very politely, if we could please stay on topic and finish discussing what we were talking about, he got in a last word and then hung up on me. He very clearly does not like to “lose” arguments, and Larson rigs his show accordingly.

    BTW, Larson now has a company called “Reputation Defender” working for him. This company is supposed to “cover-up” negative things said about you on the Internet. LOL! Lars should ask for his money back!

    • 33 Ryan 09/22 at 5:57 pm

      Dave — I’m not at all doubting the Reputation Defender thing (sounds exactly like something he’d do, actually) but I was wondering, do you know of any internet sources I could cite? I think that tidbit would be a juicy addition to the Lars wikipedia article, and they’re going to want citation(s).

    • 34 Dave 10/08 at 2:48 pm

      Ryan, I don’t know of any citations, per se. I only know about it because Larson himself admitted he uses Reputation Defender in commercials on his shows. Larson also had the CEO on one time for an “interview” (I’d imagine the “interview” was part of his paid advertising package), and there too, Larson acknowledged that he was using Reputation Defender’s services.

  18. 35 Matt 09/08 at 6:47 pm

    Driving from Bend to Eugene today, I warmed-up on Rush and then found Lars on the dial. I suffered through endless commentary and parody about Obama the communist. I giggled through callers who agreed “100%” with Lars that Obama’s speech to students was facistic and totalitarian. I couldn’t take it any more. I called from the car and asked Lars to read on air the communist or totalitarian passages from Obama’s speech to students.
    After bloviating about Obama smoking “pot” and Lars not understanding where he got the money to buy the pot, Lars hung up on me. His skills of obfuscation are generally impressive, but this was weak. I really expected Lars to have the self-respect and respect for his listeners to answer such a straight-forward (and obvious) question.
    I do hate to help boost his rating, but one day I might give him another shot!

  19. 36 peter ross 07/11 at 7:17 pm

    I think it’s great that Oregon has Lars. I can’t think of any place more deserving. You libs need a good poke in the eye. Just a bunch of self assured insolents. I really like your beaches. PR

  20. 38 rag777 06/17 at 1:15 pm

    It is a shame that Portland can’t suck hard enough to pull all the lefties out of Washington and help us disinfect the state. Lars is about the only thing in that “city” that DOESN’T suck.

    • 39 Ryan 06/18 at 5:02 pm

      Rag, sure thing. He said if anybody ever “attacked his car with their bike, he’d shoot them”. Do you really think they’re going to let him do his radio show from prison? I doubt it.

    • 40 Ben 12/30 at 7:11 am

      You are free to move to Arizona any time you like. I think you’d like the political climate there. I’ll help you pack.
