On his radio show today, right-wing radio host Neal Boortz — who has a long record of disparaging immigrants and minority groups — claimed, “I would make a lousy Mexican.” Asked why by his engineer, Boortz responded, “Well, because I wanted to scrub the hangar floor the other day, so I went and rented one of these big buffers,” later adding: “I turned on that buffer, and it damn near killed me! It was dragging me across the hangar floor, throwing me around like I — it was like a dog shaking a cat or something like that. You know, that’s skilled labor.” Media Matters has the audio here.
