KWAM Listeners Blow Up Over Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s Concert Ban

Gov. Asa Hutchinson is facing a mountain of criticism over his crackdown on large gatherings and KWAM listeners sounded off Friday on the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

A cease and desist order against a concert venue in Fort Smith was issued by Hutchison this week. The concert had been scheduled to be held three days before the state would allow venues to operate with fewer than 50 people.

Despite being a member of the Republican Party, Hutchinson is letting his “purple” show, as one caller said.

“They’re inflated numbers, we don’t really know how many have died from corona,” one listener said. “We’re just sick and tired of Asa Hutchinson. He’s proving to me to be a rhino.”

With just over 4,000 cases in the whole state, and over 3,000 of these recovered, many KWAM listeners find it ridiculous that the whole state remains in a shuttered position.

“It’s minuscule,” the same listener added about the numbers. “We have 3 million people in Arkansas, and we’re all getting treated like this is the Black Plague.”

The governor shared on Thursday that he doesn’t believe that Arkansas is ready to go into Phase 2, according to a report from KATV.

“How far can we push the American people before they blow up on us?” another listener commented about the state governments’ mentalities.

While Arkansas sits in limbo, citizens of the community have to sit and wait until Gov. Hutchinson gives the state the green light for Phase 2.

“I went to Hobby Lobby this morning,” another in Little Rock said. “I didn’t wear a mask. I haven’t worn a mask anywhere I have been.”

The listener said it’s been business as usual where she lives, and she’s very grateful for that.
