Neal Boortz: Public Schools Led To Obama, So Kill Public Schools

by Doktor Zoom

Superannuated radio screamy-man Neal Boortz has some amusing observations about how to improve America’s political discourse! Speaking to the Isaac-dampened attendees at Tampa’s Wingnutpalooza “Unity Rally 2012,” Mr. Boortz urged Amercia-loving conservatives to adopt subtle Luntzian adjustments that will reframe important issues. First off, they should always say “Democrat Party,” because “it makes them SO MAD when you say that.” Witty!

More important, though, is the need to open the Overton Window on a phrase that until now has been a shibboleth for membership in the Tinfoil Hat Brigade:

They are not public schools, they are government schools. They are owned by, staffed by, operated by and forced upon us by the government.

And, ladies and gentlemen, it is 100 years of government education that led us to the point that a man like Barack Obama could be sworn in as president of the United States.

So, wherever you are, preach school choice.

Considering that he appears to be wholly ignorant of the history of public education in our American Republic, we can only assume that Mr. Boortz is hoping to get a job with the David Barton Institute of Historical Knowing Things. (Haha, just kidding. Maybe public schools only became socialist indoctrination factories in the last hundred years. Damn you, Woodrow Wilson!) But do not worry, everything can be set right if we just get the Bible back in schools and make improvements to the curriculum.

Neal Boortz, by the way, knows a thing or two about reframing public discourse. How can anyone forget how he completely changed the way Americans think about Hurricane Katrina? Back in 2008, Boortz proclaimed that the real problem with Katrina was not the Bush administration’s inept response, but rather “the worthless parasites who lived in New Orleans who you — couldn’t even wipe themselves, let alone get out of the way of the water when that levee broke.” But do not call him a racist for saying that. He is graciously handing his radio slot to Herman Cain in 2013, so he’s OK.

I actually say Democrat party because it annoys my parents and I don't think it matters at all.

SnarkOff August 28, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Is the problem "party"? Because who doesn't love a party?

Chichikovovich August 28, 2012 at 3:21 pm

They prefer "Demon-RAT"?

No they are rather a-typical boomer bluetards, "It's the Democratic Party!!!!" my dad shouts at the television when he hears this outrageous slur…

Two schools, while his parents worked for a bloated government tax dollar void of an organization called the Military.

And then A&M, Texas's first public university.

That brain trust, George W. Bush, is a product of private education.

Government schools, bad. Government army, good. No reason to be afraid of people with guns, only school teachers.

And school *choice* is okay, but God forbid a woman decide what to do with her own damn body.

Not so fast there, Boss – a chalkboard can do some serious damage in the wrong hands (fortunately, Glenn Beck's impact is mitigated by the fact that the illiterate baboons who make up his core viewership can't decipher his blather ("All them "words" and arrows – I get confused, dangit!!")

Henceforth all games of Red Rover Red Rover must be played individually. No team play allowed.

Neil Boortz should remember, then, that he is on government airwaves and kill himself

With votes.

We can put a man on the moon. Why can't we bring the Republican party into the 21st Century?

nounverb911 August 28, 2012 at 3:09 pm

When did they make into the 20th century?

weejee August 28, 2012 at 3:11 pm

19th?

actor212 August 28, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Who said they had?

HistoriCat August 28, 2012 at 3:15 pm

1901 just like everyone else – but then they did an about face in 1964 and have been sprinting backwards ever since.

Geminisunmars August 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Oh, so all these wingnuts either were home schooled or went to private schools? Sure.

A bunch of them dropped out in fifth grade when they turned 16.

SexySmurf August 28, 2012 at 3:08 pm

In his defense, Neal Boortz did go to public school.

actor212 August 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Can you say you attended a school if you were merely stuffed in a locker until graduation?

IceCreamEmpress August 28, 2012 at 3:15 pm

"Swirly Club" is not a recognized extracurricular activity, Mr. Boortz. Also, stop dripping toilet water on my desk.

elviouslyqueer August 28, 2012 at 3:26 pm

TWICE.

Boortz spent his first two years of High School at Tustin Union High School in Tustin, California. The family then moved to Florida where he attended Pensacola High School, graduating in 1963.

Whereupon he attended that notable bastion of private school higher education, Texas Goddamn A&M.

bikerlaureate August 28, 2012 at 4:39 pm

"And, ladies and gentlemen, it is 100 years of government education that led us to the point that a man like me could be listened to by adults and not laughed right out of the building."

And never learned to spell "Neil".

edgydrifter August 28, 2012 at 3:08 pm

For Boortz, being a colossal asshole is more than a personality defect, it's his weapon of choice.

billy_reuben August 29, 2012 at 4:43 am

Its his meal ticket.

RRoccoco August 28, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Public streets and highways just encourage people to drive to the polls to vote for Obama. Private toll roads only!

Science education leads to people believing in evolution, global warming, gravity, and relativity, just like Obama. Burn the scientists!

Free air lets people breathe long enough to vote for Obama. No more free breathers–you should pay air creators for the privilege. Death to the Free Breathers!

So, when is my slot for speaking to the GOP in Tampa? I'm ready to go.

Incitefully_Joe August 28, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Everything wrong truly is Obama's fault. Damn. I guess I give up on trying to defend him.

So we should all strive to have children be the product of private education, as are Mittens and Dubya?

weejee August 28, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Well Pvt. Isaac Aguigui, the current home skoolin' poster child from Cashmere, WA, is on trail for murder and terrorism in Georgia. Just shows to go ya how that non-public education allows the cream to float to the top, just like the larger ones do in a septic tank.

anniegetyerfun August 28, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Hey, Cashmere is just minutes from my hometown of Wenatchee! I'm so embarrassed. If any town in Central WA is going to produce horrible murderers, I really thought it would be Wenatchee.

Or, you know, Yakima.

weejee August 28, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Have you been to Manson? Some folks in that locale make you think the town was named for Charlie.

anniegetyerfun August 28, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Used to “summer” there. If you can use the word “summer” as a verb in a place like Manson (no, you can't).There was a good Mexican restaurant that served nachos with steak strips on top… for a while, before they realized that they were serving quality food in a town of 600 people, and quickly changed the menu.

Antispandex August 28, 2012 at 3:11 pm

So what happens when all of the childrens go to various private schools, and learn all different kinds of "truths", no one can agree on what the facts are anymore? Geeze, this is going to be GREAT!

Biff August 28, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Somehow, I doubt Liberty U and BYU will ever agree on much of anything. Does it to you?

Antispandex August 28, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Well, I think we can pretty much count on them both not to be too big on all of that science stuff. I mean genetics, evolution? That stuff is just crazy!

anniegetyerfun August 28, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Our chemistry teacher (public school, of course) use to lecture us on the dangers of abortion while joking that the world would be better off if everyone was gay, because gays don't reproduce and the world would do better if humanity died off. So, you know, there was value there.

Chichikovovich August 28, 2012 at 3:11 pm

they should always say “Democrat Party,” because “it makes them SO MAD when you say that.”

Really? How surprising. I don't get angry at all. In fact, since I regard the use of "Democrat party" as a 100% reliable sign that the speaker is a dittohead fool whose opinion is worthless and may be safely ignored, I'm usually grateful to the speaker for having saved me some time.

SoBeach August 28, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Yep. 95% of the ones you encounter in everyday life don't even realize they're using the wrong word. They're just repeating what they heard on the radio. They might as well be wearing "DUMBASS" t-shirts.

Crank_Tango August 28, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Just like online when they say shit like "lifelong Lib here…"

bikerlaureate August 28, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Agree completely.

If acting irritated once in a while is the price we have to pay for this reliable self-flagging term, bring it on.

BZ1 August 28, 2012 at 3:11 pm

If Neal is a product of public schools, he may be on to something.

NorthStarSpanx August 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Now school choice is among the signifiers of freedom in this country?

Let's see, guns, religion and homeschooling, but rape conception is a non-issue cause we emotional womens got a complex mess of chemicals in there that got a way of shutting the whole thing down.

Sad news for married women who have trouble conceiving though, no wonder they don't want monies to go toward In vitro.

LibertyLover August 28, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Of course, all emotional women must have gone to public schools. That's where they teach about sex and other things of that nature. Giving them ideas and such.

As for married women who cannot get preggers — does that mean that their husband is doing the rapey thing on them so that the women's lady bits shut the whole thing down?

ShuCityRefugee August 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Both President Clinton and Senator Dole attended public schools. I believe that the 1996 general election was the last time that either major party candidate graduated from a public high school. Most people believe that 100 years of public education were responsible for making us the greatest, strongest nation in history. Most of us believe that participatory democracy is a good thing, even when we are dissatisfied with short-term outcomes. Who the !@#$%^&* is this guy, and where did he go to school? Oh, thank you Wikipedia, he is a product of public education, unlike President Obama, who attended private schools.

I wished this guy was around when I was in school so I could read textbooks that say:

Electricity is a mystery. No one has observed it or heard it or felt it. We can see and hear and feel only what electricity does. We know it makes light bulbs shine and irons heat up and telephones ring. But we cannot say what electricity itself is like.

We cannot even say where electricity comes from. Some scientists think that the sun may be the source of most electricity. Others think that the movement of the earth produces some of it.

No socialism crap, just pure science.

YasserArraFeck August 28, 2012 at 3:22 pm

electrons go in, electrons come out – who can explain it?

CommieLibunatic August 28, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I was gonna say, the answer might make your head hurt… so go grab some Advil, you pustulent ignoramuses.

In my forthcoming book We Don't Need No Education: The Rise of Contrafactualism in the USA, 2000 – 2012, I posit that AM radio waves actually drown out thought through a principle similar to the constructive/destructive interference of waveforms. AM radio is just thinking that is 180 degrees out of phase with normal human thinking.

Anti-thought if you will.

90% of the 10% at the convention who attended school at all went to public school, sure.

MacRaith August 28, 2012 at 3:32 pm

But those weren't government schools. Back in the good ol' days, schools were created by organized groups of citizens who banded together for the common good, and then everyone chipped in to pay for them and cover the operating costs.

In other words, they were created and run by the government and paid for by taxes. But the wingnuts are too dumb to realize it.

Chichikovovich August 28, 2012 at 3:15 pm

the worthless parasites who lived in New Orleans

Huh? I thought Bobby Jindal lived in Baton Rouge.

What is with the whole "Democrat" Party trope? According to, uh, the dictionary, a "democrat" is one who is an "adherent of democracy".

Of course dictionaries are written by liberal elites who went to college to be indoctrinated by neo-Marxists, which is why the definition of "republican" shows up as "ignorant smegma-brained old white person".

Perhaps it's just me, but it seems like this kind of reasoning makes for really poor advertising of the virtues of private education.

Some in-laws and the opening of Mean Girls did it for me. That second one has some yokel kids:

"And on the third day, God created the Remington bolt-action rifle so that Man could fight the dinosaurs." <beat> "And the homosexuals. Amen!"

Seriously, there's something wrong when your kid can't Google their way out of a paper bag, but can point to some obscure verse "proving" Jesus rode atop a Deinonychus.

Flat_Earther August 28, 2012 at 3:25 pm

The “ic” suffix…

The “ic” suffix is used to form an adjective. Adjectives as I am sure you are aware describe or modify nouns. Democratic is thus an adjective modifying or describing the noun Party. Modify or describing “party” with the noun “Democrat” is incorrect speech and makes you sound stupid.

Misty Malarky August 28, 2012 at 3:33 pm

On numerous occasions, Boortz has cautioned his listeners to take no heed nor place any credence in anything he says, as he is merely an "entertainer."

Ironically self-aware asshole is ironical.

actor212 August 28, 2012 at 3:35 pm

And if you pinned him down on his "entertainment" value, he'd tell you he's a pundit.

Nice work if you can get it.

garryboldwater August 28, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Unfortunately, Boortzi isn't very entertaining at all. A human penis with a microphone who pretends to be a Libertarian. Just another GOP hack.

First off, they should always say “Democrat Party,” because “it makes them SO MAD when you say that.” Witty!

In fairness, I always make it a point to call Republicans "assholes".

Hang on there… my brother is a Republican. Oh, wait. No, he's an asshole, too. Carry on.

Beowoof August 28, 2012 at 9:13 pm

My brother is a bigger asshole republican, wanna know why? He is a Boortz fan. He is also empirical proof of the article I saw today that smoking too much weed as a teenager lowers your IQ.

… “the worthless parasites who lived in New Orleans who you — couldn’t even wipe themselves, let alone get out of the way of the water when that levee broke.”

Yeah, hospitals were not allowed to evacuate for Katrina & many nursing homes couldn't or didn't… http://understandingkatrina.ssrc.org/Bytheway/ind

This guy is nauseating.

In Neal Boortz's defense, Neal Boortz is also the product of a lifetime of public education. So, that's at least one example of somebody who was failed by the public education system in America (author's note: this is my way of saying that Neal Boortz is very stupid)

Mumbletypeg August 28, 2012 at 3:37 pm

I wanna blame the goofballs' letting "Neil Young, Astronaut, Dead at 82" go to press without proofing, on public education's output of poorly practiced readers.

But I've a hunch it's less to do with failure of our schools than endemic laziness of decision makers who fail to run ideas past peers; myopic neglect to analyze what's right in front of them; and cavalier self-assurance if one drops the ball there's always some other entity to pass the buck along to.
Therefore I blame morally and cognitively challenged products of idiocy like Neal Boortz.

Isn't the Emancipation Proclamation the real culprit?!

Presidential power overreach!

We have been promised that this group of individuals will eventually die off, right? When????

Hey Neal: If you want to keep your country, you'd better get to fuckin'!

I'll bet Obama watched Sesame Street, too.

TootsStansbury August 28, 2012 at 3:54 pm

I thought President Obama attended a madrassa.

Neal Boortz's vision of the future: "White" people send their children to privately funded Christian schools and learn creationism instead of science, accept church doctrine instead of learning to think for themselves.
"Blah" people are left to the public schools where they learn real science and reasoning ability.

Oops. I don't think he thought that through all the way….His unintended consequences will be:

"White" people are relegated to working on assembly lines because they aren't suited to anything else. "Blah" people become future doctors and lawyers and professional people.

Bwahahahahaha!

An_Outhouse August 28, 2012 at 4:02 pm

First off,you should always say “Gynecologically Ignorant Rentboy Fuckers” because it makes them SO MAD when you say that.

Chet Kincaid_ August 28, 2012 at 4:03 pm

I say we should go ahead and own "Democrat Party". "Teabaggers" and "Teabag Party" bothers them more, especially because they had to go look it up on that filthy urbandictionary.com.

So does this mean that only private school grads vote for Romney?

And, ladies and gentlemen, it is 100 years of government education that led us to the point that a man like Barack Obama could be sworn in as president of the United States.

Wait, does that mean all public schools are actually Kenyan?

Fox n Fiends August 28, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Comrade Boortz will next select all people with glasses to be sent to re-education camps.

arihaya August 28, 2012 at 5:31 pm

You know who else want to abolish public schools?

TALIBAN !!!!!

Slim_Pickins August 28, 2012 at 6:08 pm

The argument that "100 years of government education" has brought us to Wingnut palooza is more persuasive.

scorpy1 August 28, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Boortz's game-changing ideas are perfectly placed, since he's playing solitaire without a full deck.

Wayyy back in the glory days where children worked in factories or cleaned chimneys or served as human footstools, or what have you, the first Sunday Schools were created to teach literacy, via the Bible, to those children who were unable to attend school during the rest of the week.

Now, I'm sure Neal Boortz would love this idea – children working 40 hours a week and learning only by using the Bible.

However, this, education for all, was considered radical, controversial and revolutionary at the time.

And the church in question?

My own crazy heathen sect, the Unitarians.

And now you know the…..rest of the story.

MinAgain August 28, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Neal Boortz must have been wedgied a lot in school. And that kind of thing can scar a kid.

Baba_NinjaCat12 August 28, 2012 at 8:56 pm

What do you call when there's no government in public school?

A Segregated School

"Kneel" is a local product and in fact is the winner of the "Most Resembles an Uncut Penis" Competition for the last seven years.

"First off, they should always say 'Democrat Party,' because 'it makes them SO MAD when you say that.' Witty!"

In that same spirit, let us unilaterally rename Neal Boortz who shall hereinafter be referred to as Mr. Teeny-Peeny-Fecal-Face.

Didn't Neil Boortz discover Bozozons?
