The Worldnetdaily knows its audience and the buttons to push to sell things to them (everything from fear to books and videos). Every week they do a roundup of what was said by right wing radio hosts that week. This week’s roundup has this nonsense from Michael Savage:
Prompted by increasingly troubling events at home and abroad, Michael Savage pushed his publisher to make his new book available for pre-order as soon as possible.
That book, “The Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth,” comes out in October. In his latest work, Savage calls on readers to help save America from certain doom, starting at the ballot box – but going beyond electoral politics to address the roots of our problems.
Savage “believes the split between right and left is possibly irreparable, unless we understand what’s really happening and how we must act to stop it.”
On the air this week, Dr. Savage used his background as a trained epidemiologist to explains the volatile situation in Ferguson, Missouri. He compared the town to a human body trying to fight off infection.
No, he didn’t “use his background as a trained epidemiologist” to explain anything, he made an analogy. A really, really stupid analogy that doesn’t actually explain anything. His training as an epidemiologist provides nothing whatsoever to help him or anyone else understand the situation in Ferguson. As for his book, I have no doubt that his “solution” to what he thinks is an impending civil war is for liberals to disappear and to do everything the right wing wants. Wow, what a “solution.”
