Another Rightwinger Inciting Violence

Atlanta-based far rightwing AM radio blowhard Neal Boortz:

"We got too damn many urban thugs, yo, ruining the quality of life for everybody. And I'll tell you what it's gonna take. You people, you are - you need to have a gun. You need to have training. You need to know how to use that gun. You need to get a permit to carry that gun. And you do in fact need to carry that gun and we need to see some dead thugs littering the landscape in Atlanta."

The next day, Boortz's spokespeople as well as Cox Broadcasting, which syndicates him, back-pedaled and pretended that rant wasn't racist and didn't call for vigilantism and direct violence, namely, shooting people who he thinks look like thugs in the streets.

If a Liberal said something like that, he would have been fired immediately.
