What an racist and an a-hole that guy is!

[ QUOTE ]

Referring to Rep. Cynthia McKinney's (D-GA) March 29 altercation with a Capitol Police officer, Neal Boortz attacked McKinney's physical appearance on the March 31 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, stating, "I don't blame that cop for stopping her" because "it looked like a welfare drag queen was trying to sneak into the Longworth House Office Building." He added: "That haircut is ghetto trash." Boortz said he was "absolutely privileged and entitled" to make his comments, based not on his "white privilege," but on his "bald privilege," saying, "I've been enduring jokes about my lack of hair for years," so "I am privileged and entitled to say anything I want about anybody else's hairdo." Boortz then predicted, "Media Matters [for America] will pick up that one," and declared: "[T]hat's why I do things like that, just to give them something to write about." As Media Matters noted, earlier on his program, Boortz had said that McKinney "looks like a ghetto slut."

From the March 31 broadcast of Cox Radio Syndication's The Neal Boortz Show:

BOORTZ: OK. Now, I'm going to repeat something that I said a little bit earlier. I've been enduring jokes about my lack of hair for years, so I am absolutely privileged and entitled. This is not white privilege, this is bald privilege. I am privileged and entitled to say anything I want about anybody else's hairdo.

I saw Cynthia McKinney's hairdo yesterday -- saw it on TV. I don't blame that cop for stopping her. It looked like a welfare drag queen was trying to sneak into the Longworth House Office Building. That hairdo is ghetto trash. I don't blame them for stopping her. Now, let's see if Media Matters will pick up on that one. "Boortz calls McKinney welfare drag queen." [laughs] So, well, that's why I do things like that, just to give them something to write about.

Boortz is hilarious. I don't really see where you get the racist part. Which race is he talking about? To be quite honest, I think all the "ghetto trash" should be pissed off for Boortz including Cynthia "the little terrorist" McKinney in the description.

YOU are the only person mentioning race and you are the only person making it appear as that race is the only race in the ghetto.

[ QUOTE ]

C'mon, you live in the ghetto trash of the world (nothing like legal prostitution and drugs), I would have guessed you would recognize the image Boortz was trying to describe. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I love listening to his show. He pulls no punches...and he has no problem pointing out the stupid stuff that both parties in washington do...as well as his own state and community. He makes you think, and more often than not, when you think about it, you realise he is right. Not to mention that he will admit up front that if he doesn't offend you at some point during his show, he hasn't done his job. Politically Incorrect! I LOVE IT!!!

Oh yeah, Boortz apologized for calling her a slut (not for being racist because he wasn't). /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif He had no right doing that since her hairdo has something to do with promiscuity. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

However, as Boortz shows it, you avoided the real issue about McKinney.

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote Boortz' apology:</font><hr> Talking about stepping in it!

Suddenly, for some people, the issue isn't Cynthia McKinney hitting a law enforcement officer and then screaming racism. Nope. The issue is what I had to say about her hair style. That's entirely fair --- to a point. Last Friday I said that that hairdo ... the wild and crazy every hair going in a different direction hairdo -- made her look like a ghetto slut. Know what? That was wrong. Bad wrong. That was overboard. I know Cynthia McKinney. I've know her for years. I intensely dislike her anti-American politics and her constant race baiting ... but on a personal level we've always gotten along just fine .. kidding each other ... needling each other. I remember her spotting me sitting in the House visitors gallery one day and yelling (with a smile on her face, by the way) "Neal Boortz! Who the hell let you in here?" I've known her father much longer than I've known her. I have said on the air several times this past week that I think that she has an endearing personality and a million-dollar smile.

That being said, I don't think that it was right to use the word "slut" in any description involving her or her hairdo. So ... my heartfelt apologies to Cynthia McKinney. I'll say it here, and I'll say it on the air on today. When I'm wrong I'll admit it with no hesitation.

Now this apology is going to mean absolutely nothing to those of you who consider every word ever uttered by someone-not-liberal to be "hate speech." This apology is going to mean nothing to those of you who consider every negative comment or criticism ever made of or about anybody-not-white to be "racism." Most of the people who have sent me some rather nasty emails in the last 24 hours know nothing about me except what they've read on some far-left websites. One listener from Saginaw, Michigan wrote to say that this apology indicates that I recognized my error and that I take responsibility for my words. He then wonders if it will be accepted. I am not concerned about whether or not it will be accepted. That's up to McKinney. I've said this because it's the way I feel. The apology, therefore, is for the millions of listeners who do know me and who were disappointed by my statement on Friday. Sorry I let you down.

Actually, I should be horsewhipped for saying something stupid that allowed, to some extent, the attention to shift from the wrongdoing of Cynthia McKinney to my ill-chosen words. The issue here is not how one would define Cynthia McKinney's hairstyle. The issue is whether or not Cynthia McKinney assaulted a law enforcement officer who was merely trying to do his sworn duty. Contrast, if you would, my apology with that of Cynthia McKinney. McKinney has only said that she "regrets" that the incident happened. That is not an apology. So far as I've heard there has not been one "I'm sorry." Instead, McKinney stages a news conference Friday afternoon featuring two of premiere Hollywood leftist jackasses, Danny Glover and Harry Belafonte, two men fresh from their recent appearance giving aid and comfort to America-hater Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. So, there is Cynthia McKinney, standing there with two men who have said some mighty foul things about our country and our president, accusing a police officer of being a racist because he didn't recognize her when she circumvented a screening station. That man spends his days protecting McKinney and her colleagues; and she thanks him by calling him a racist for merely doing his job. Let's see if Cynthia can eventually stand up and apologize for being a fool. I just did. It really doesn't hurt all that much.

First time I ever heard of the guy. Did he say anything about a specific race? Why do people like him,as the responses from two celebrated intellects of the forum would indicate. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif I think it was H.L. Menken,who said,"you will never go broke under estimating the taste of the American public".

People like him because his arguments normally make sense. He is the author of "The Fair Tax Book", which outlines how to eliminate the federal income tax with a national consumption tax. He puts forth a pretty convincing argument that we'd be better off with a consumption tax (more than anything, special interests would have a much harder time getting special exemptions and deductions).

While abrasive and pompous, his libertarian views are refreshing since the electoral college and winner take all style elections in the U.S. have rendered our two party system all but impenetrable by third parties. As a Libertarian/Federalist myself (state's rights, a la Thomas Jefferson), I find his arguments on the use/abuse of eminent domain and the use of the free market to allow competition to correct what's wrong with schools, rather than allowing a government monopoly to control everything, compelling.

Boortz doesn't have everything figured out, as he'd like you to believe, but he is a voice saying something different, which after an evening of watching the news and listening to Teddy Kennedy and Dubya say the same thing is pretty refreshing.

It says this on the bottom of Boortz's web page.

"ALWAYS REMEMBER
Don't believe anything you read on this web page, or, for that matter, anything you hear on The Neal Boortz Show, unless it is consistent with what you already know to be true, or unless you have taken the time to research the matter to prove its accuracy to your satisfaction. This is known as "doing your homework."

I agree with him.

<font color="blue"> Q. of course I have the gall and the right to criticize the McKinney pimp behaviour. She tried to slink past the guards without her lapel pin, hit a guard when stopped and then yelled racism. Most minority politicians don't act in such a way. She has a history of this and does make a bad impression as a welfare person would not act this way. Integrity, where has she shown any. She drags a class of school studets out to a press conference to "Protest" her not being recognised by the police who have over 500 of these politicians to watch out for most of whom don't change their hair as often. She is known as a Congresswoman who is there only for the high profile votes, cares more about who knows her then how she can help others. Like the Republicans, maybe, and just like the democrats but at least they don't strike poor government police just out trying to insure the security of the entire congress. </font color>

They had her on the news this morning with her lawyer. Weirdest interview I have ever seen. They ask her a question and she just started talking. She was not even talking about the question she was being asked. If this wasn't bad enough she wouldn't stop. She completely ignored the interviewer. When they couldn't get her to pause for another question the just asked another question over her talking. She just kept on like they weren't even there. You couldn't even understand what she was talking about. Finally after about five minutes of this they cut to a commercial.

My impression was that she is a nut job and that hairdo does make her look like some kind of hoochie moma.
