  •  Neil Boortz and Michael Savage are (3+ / 0-)

    Shit-Smears too.

    Wiki on Boortz:

    Boortz markets his talk radio show as "insensitivity training", with some of his statements have created controversy over the years. For example, Boortz believes that ADD and ADHD are "medical frauds" and a scam that teachers, parents, and drug companies use.[33][34] Boortz has also received criticism because he refers to homeless people as "urban outdoorsmen".[35][36][37] Boortz controversially refers to public education as "tax payer funded child abuse" and accuses parents of child abuse for sending their children off to "government schools"

    Wiki on Wiener, er, Savage:

    Liberal advocacy groups, media watchdogs and commentators such as GLAAD, FAIR, and Dave Gilson of Salon.com accuse Savage of fascist leanings,[51] racism,[27] homophobia,[52] bigotry[27] and Islamophobia[53] because of his controversial statements about homosexuality, Islam, feminism, sex education, and immigration.[54] On his September 21, 1999 broadcast, Savage said that the motivation for female students who come from a Marin County private school to feed and provide services to the homeless is so they "can go in and get raped by them, because they seem to like the excitement of it..."[55]

    On April 17, 2006, he said of Muslims "They say, "Oh, there's a billion of them." I said, "So, kill 100 million of them, then there'll be 900 million of them." I mean, would you rather die — would you rather us die than them?"[56][57] After Savage was banned from the UK, this was also reported in the UK media.

    In July 2008, Savage claimed that the increasing rate of autism diagnoses was the result of "a racket" designed to get disability payments for "poorer families who have found a new way to be parasites on the government."

    How these clowns get a pass to spew the crap, vitriol and hate that they do is beyond me. They yell "Fire!" in a crowded theatre every day.

    This ain't no party. This ain't no disco. This ain't no foolin' around!
