Boortz profits from filth while high schoolers are muzzled. Huh?

Boortz profits from filth while high schoolers are muzzled. Huh?

So Atlanta embarrassment Neal Boortz gets paid large to utter contemptible crap like this:

Neal Boortz: If New Orleans is rebuilt, the ‘debris that Katrina chased out’ will return.

While high school students in Florida are banned from wearing an admittedly ignorant shirt:

Florida high school students sent home for wearing ‘Islam is of the devil’ t-shirts.

High school students in Gainesville, FL were sent home recently for wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the phrase “Islam is of the devil.” The children wearing the shirts belong to the Dove World congregation, an evangelical “New Testament Church” which urges followers to “bring Godly changes to our entire society.” Tom Wittmer, an attorney for the Gainesville school district, said the clothing was inappropriate and a violation of the dress code because it disrupts the learning process:

“Students have a right of free speech, and we have allowed students to come to school wearing clothes with messages,” Wittmer said. “But this message is a divisive message that is likely to offend students.” […]

He said there also has to be equal treatment of different faiths.

“The next kid might show up with a shirt saying ‘Christianity is of the Devil,'” Wittmer said.

So in Florida, the only “free speech” allowed is that with which the majority would approve. And truly terrifying is the notion that some kid might show up with a shirt saying something “divisive” about Christianity. Oh the horror.

But in Georgia, the major radio station in the metro Atlanta area has long hosted the draft-dodging fascist cheerleader Neal Boortz to the embarrassment of all of us who don’t view human beings as debris.

Other than Neal Boortz, that is.
