I'm getting the message, catching his drift. Pete Borden doesn't like my opinions because they don't mesh with his own puny worldview. To Mr. Borden, when I'm not "lying" I'm a "coward."
Really? Here I present progressive push back every week in the hard right conservative stronghold of Cobb County, putting my real name to my real words, but I'm gutless.
Mr. Borden suggests I waited until Boortz's last day on the air suggest "Mighty Whitey" was a nasty, elitist bigot. But what better coda could there be to Boortz's disgraceful career, polluting the public airwaves with his disgusting brand of minority-bashing.
Forget that Boortz was a complete bore, a tasteless, unfunny, uninteresting radio gabber. I simply used Boortz's own comments in my column, which is limited to 600 words. I could have filled the MDJ with Boortz's bullying attacks on people who couldn't possibly defend themselves, such as the Katrina survivors Boortz called "garbage" or Muslims he described as "cockroaches."
That's the dictionary definition of coward, Mr. Borden.
Mr. Borden reveals much about himself rushing to Boortz's defense. His listeners - and evidently Pete Borden LOVED Neal Boortz - must have affirmation and, as I noted, only the willfully ignorant, delusional, racist or paranoid would waste their time listening to Boortz or people like him.
Pete, which are you?
