Michael Savage, one of the most extreme and ridiculous voices on right wing talk radio, offered a very strange opinion on his show last week. Responding to something called “No Pants Day,” he said that Muslim immigration may be “God’s way of saving the West from itself.”
“What if the large influx of Muslims is God’s way of saving the West from itself?”
That was Dr. Savage’s provocative question at the top of the week. He was reflecting on the decadent international craze called “No Pants Day,” when subway passengers travel half-dressed.
“Normally I wouldn’t even talk about this,” Savage said, “but in the midst of [the prank] this time, a Muslim woman in Brussels, wearing a headscarf, held up a sign that said, ‘Pardon my dignity.’ She was quietly protesting No Pants Day on Brussels’ public transportation. Remember: Nature abhors a vacuum. As the West declines farther and farther into the abyss of degeneracy and stupidity, the Muslims are filling the void.”
And once again we have evidence of the commonly held views of the Christian right, the Jewish right and the Muslim right. They’re all virulently anti-gay and anti-sexual freedom in general.
