Neal Boortz compares Obama to a Child Molester on Twitter

Rate: 10 Flag

 from ThinkProgress:

Today, on the one-year anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, President Obama will speak on Wall Street to “try to breathe new life into efforts to overhaul the financial regulatory system.” Hate radio host Neal Boortz used his Twitter account this morning to compare the President’s visit to Wall Street to “sending a child molester to speak to a kindergarten class“:

Spewing hate is the norm for the Georgia-based radio host. In the past, he has said that health reform is going to “kill people,” compared those on unemployment insurance to “human parasitic garbage,” and referred to Katrina refugees as “debris” who were chased out by the hurricane.

this is just awful, but sadly, typical.
He has also compared Muslims to cockroaches, so nothing surprises me about him. But I don't think I'll ever be able to understand how someone gets to that point.
Neil Boortz is a wake-up call.....
The funny thing about the Boortz belch is that Wall Street, as well as America's wealthiest do better, by a factor of 300%+ under Dem administrations than they do under Republican ones.
Boortzo the Clown was just babbling a familiar, but typically ignorant right wing meme.
Taking economic advice from Boortz is like having Ponzi advise you on investments.
Thanks devil girl.

@kyle - a metaphor is saying "something is like" - so yes, he is calling Obama that. It is hate speech - it is divisive - get over it.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: There's a difference between being provocative and merely being shocking, and there are very few that are smart enough to know the difference.
Add this putz to the list.
It's easy to spew hate in the dark.
Your blog is lite in the dark. I tend to avoid hate radio but it's nice to know someone keeps up.
A better analogy is Pinocchio visiting Gepetto.
I don't know why I'm reading this it pisses me off so badly. Just think, he makes $32 million a year for spewing hatred and nonsense.
