Boortz going overboard?

Been a longtime listener of Neal Boortz, and while I don't always agree with what he says, I've found his perspectives to be somewhat refreshing. In many ways, he served as the inspiration for some of my own online rants.

But then there are those times when he really goes overboard, and I know from experience that it's really very easy for that to happen. You get caught up in a rant and you just go into automatic. Believe me, I've been there. The only difference is I don't have people working for me to tap on the window and remind me that I'm going off the deep end.

I think this morning's show sort of demonstrated what I mean about him going overboard. Boortz really went into overkill about "culture" and how the "Judeo-Christian" culture (whatever that is) is far superior than the "Islamic" culture.

Sorry Neal, but the so-called "Judeo-Christian culture" that you are trumpeting is far from superior. They too have their extremists. The only difference is that they have a government that is willing to placate to their demands. In fact, those same cultural "champions" are the ones pushing for more censorship from the FCC. (You know, the Federal Censorship Commission, although I call them the Federalist Christian Censors.) These people are just as wrong and just as evil as their Islamic counterparts, only they haven't resorted to brutality and violence yet. Operative word being "yet". But if you don't believe me, I can bring up a few names to remind you.

Word of advice from the Brutal One to a brutal one: stick with the extremist angle. That puts things in a better perspective.
