Neal Boortz: Perfect Example of Why the Rest of the World Hates Us

Reported by Marie Therese - May 9, 2007 -

On Monday May 7th Neal Boortz appeared as a guest on Your World with Neil Cavuto to discuss the recent spate of violence that has occurred in France since the election of Nicolas Sarkozy. Boortz was his usual posturing and bombastic self and had clearly been summoned to appear on FOX News to show that, despite the right-wing Sarkozy's rise to power, the American conservative noise machine will not easily let go of one of its favorite pastimes, bashing France and the French. With video.

Despite the fact that Bill O'Reilly has already waved his pudgy finger and lifted his ridiculous boycott of all things French, it is clear that Neal Boortz has no intention of following in his footsteps.

During the interview FOX News posted the following "impartial" chyrons in the lower part of the TV screen.

LIBERAL RAGE?

FRENCH REACT VIOLENTLY TO IDEA OF WORK WEEK LONGER THAN 35 HRS

BOORTZ: IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIRE SOMEONE IN FRANCE

Keep in mind that these banners and the demeanor of the host contribute to the overall impression given to the viewer. Cavuto was very buddy-buddy with Boortz. The chyrons speak for themselves.

NEIL CAVUTO: "My next guest says he knows why liberals in France are so angry. Talk show host and best-selling author Neal Boortz. What's goin' on here?"

NEAL BOORTZ: "Well, not much, other than having to live in France."

Cavuto chuckled.

(For those of you that do not know, conservatives have been so well conditioned by their talk show masters that the mere mention of the words "France" or "French" causes instantaneous giggling or snarling, as if they are all sharing a joke the rest of the world is not privy to. The Pavlov Institute could learn quite a bit from the behavior modification techniques used on a daily basis by the likes of Limbaugh, Boortz, Savage, Hannity, O'Reilly et al!)

BOORTZ: "I think the French people are angry because their European welfare state-ism may be in jeopardy. The signals are out. Maybe they're actually gonna have to work just a little bit harder for a living and not rely so much on the European - the social welfare state in France."

Note: The majority of the people protesting were young people, a generation faced en masse with a lessening of their standard of living. We are facing precisely the same thing here.

Cavuto went on to suggest that Nicolas Sarkozy should "kind of force it down their throats, that if employers want to fire you because you're doing a lousy job, they can."

Boortz then made another of his patented undocumented inflammatory accusations:

BOORTZ: "And, Neal, another thing. We keep calling this student unrest. Let's remember one thing about these riots in France. For the most part - especially a couple of years ago - the perpetrators are Muslim. And I don't see why we have such a big problem identifying them as such."

Note: See the video below for the visual rebuttal to this snide bit of verbal prestidigitation. In simple words, that means Boortz lied. It is clear that this protest is by, for and of the young. Here is an anti-DeGaulle poster from the 1968 student uprisings in France. It seems to sum up the attitude of the likes of Cavuto and Boortz. Loosely translated it says "Be young and shut up!" Fortunately, the young people of France did not pay attention to that admonition in 1968 and are not paying attention to it today nor will they pay attention to it in the future.

After Cavuto and Boortz went through the mandatory, ritual of bashing Hillary Clinton, Boortz made a cryptic comment, saying "Now, they need to start having French babies," to which Cavuto replied "Well, that's true. That's a whole 'nother issue."

A quick trip to Google revealed this nasty little item from Boortz's oh-so-cutely titled Nealz Nuze dated October 10, 2006:

I'm reading a book right now by an excellent writer named Mark Steyn. I link to his columns often. The book is "America Alone. The End of the World As We Know It." It is an absolutely fantastic read .. if not an alarming one.

In the prologue to the book Steyn makes some demographic points. Europe, Canada, Japan and Russia are running out of babies. Greece has a fertility rate of 1.3 per couple. Demographers cite that as a low point from which no human society has ever recovered. The fertility rate for Spaniards is 1.1. In Italy it's 1.2. Steyn writes "... by 2050, 60% of Italians will have no brothers, no sisters, no cousins, no aunts, no uncles."

Why is this important? Because in Europe the Muslim fertility rate is sky high. Muslims are out-producing the French in France, the Germans in Germany, the Italians in Italy ... etc.

If this doesn't mean anything to you then you're just trying to exist until tonight so you can watch "Entertainment Tonight." Maybe you can get a copy of People Magazine to tide you by.

Good grief! It's clear from the context of his off-handed remark to Cavuto, that Boortz thinks the native-born French are not having babies but the "Muslims" are.

News flash, Neal! According to the International Herald Tribune, there is a new baby boom going on in France and religious preference has nothing to do with it. (Of course, when Boortz says "Muslim" he means "Arab" and his fears about the birthrate anywhere only have to do with the color of the parents' skin! He could care less about what religion the babies are born into, as long as they're white!)

Here's a charming little advertisement that appeared while I was reading this edition of Nealz Nuze:

BreedForFreedom

Yeah, Neal Boortz, just another ugly American.

And we wonder why everyone despises us!
