Radio host Neil Boortz reiterated that Santa Claus is a white man Tuesday, telling radio listeners, "Santa Claus is white....DEAL WITH IT." Boortz also explained that the Santa Claus race debate — which was sparked after Fox News host Megyn Kelly declared that Santa Claus was a white man last week — was part of "an attack on the American family structure."
"I'm not gonna get into arguments with people about where the hell St. Nicholas is from," Boortz said. "I don't care if he's from Lithuania or Laos, I don't care. Santa Claus is white...DEAL WITH IT....and quit trying to attack...he's been white for brown, black, white for ages."
Boortz also said that the entire race debate was actually a conspiracy to make Americans dependent on the government for basic needs.
"This is just all a part of the attack on the American family structure, because the American family structure is a threat to government dominance and the government must dominate," he said. "The government must provide. Whatever you want, you must look to the government. Whatever problem you have, the government must solve it for you. Whatever need you face, the government must meet that need. Whatever crisis you face, the government must be your savior. Not your family. Not the concept of Santa Claus as a child. The government."
Boortz was substituting as the host of the program for former pizza executive and presidential candidate Herman Cain.
