Right wing radio host Neal Boortz recently suggested that, in the event of another Katrina or terrorist attack, we "save the rich people first." Boortz thinks this is a good idea because the rich are so obviously "responsible for this prosperity."
Boortz's brainchild was inspired by events here in NYC. Certain "well connected" (read "rich") business and arts types got two heads-up emails regarding the subway terror alert from their pals at the Department of Homeland Security [sic] days before the rest of us were warned. In an unfortunate oversight, Blogenfreude was not cc'd.
We at Agitprop are pretty sure that Boortz's, er, final solution is similar to another selection process some right-wingers thought up in the 40s. One can only hope that someday Boortz is left to wonder when help might come as flood waters rise around him.Night Bird kicks some fascist ass with this post.
