Michael Savage Solves Our Problems

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.”

    his “solution” to what he thinks is an impending civil war is for liberals to disappear and to do everything the right wing wants

    Yep. Just like the deadlock in Congress is all Obama’s fault because he won’t agree to scrap the ACA, huge cuts in Medicade and Social Security, and reduce taxes on the 1% to zero.

    The infection, of course, being uppity n____rs.

    I can stand listening to Savage for short periods of time – his total insanity & ability to contradict himself several times in one sentence is sometimes amusing before it becomes painful.

    His solution is simple – buy gold from his sponsor and get rid of non-whites, non-right-wing Christians, non-English speakers, people with a name other than English or German sounding, anyone with a more than 3rd grade education and the entire rest of the world in general. Then sit on your gold in your bunker, praying to Jesus about how superior you are – but only in the dark because ‘they’ are looking for you.

    My sister, who is an attorney in the San Francisco Bay Area, was once eating in a SF restaurant when Savage walked in, sat down and proceeded to berate the waitress for not taking is order immediately, if not sooner and later complaining that his steak was too well done. Both of these tirades were carried out in a loud voice that could be heard all over the restaurant. What a total asshole.

    people with a name other than English or German sounding,

    You are probably right. Ironically, Michael Savage’s real name is Michael Weiner and he is Jewish.

    Michael Savage (born Michael Alan Weiner; March 31, 1942) is an…The son of Russian Jewish immigrants

    I hope his Final Solution doesn’t involve those FEMA camps and gas chambers. I’ve got cats to feed and can’t afford to end up as a pile of ashes.

    Ferguson is indeed like the body fighting off an infection. The infection is the city government and the police department, the protesters are white blood cells responding to an attack. The fire and whatever (greatly overstated) looting there has been is analogous to the pain and inflammation that sometimes accompanies fighting off an infection.

    Let’s try not to do what he does here.

    A really easy way to tell when you’re dealing with bigots is the way they dehumanize people they don’t like. It’s like a universal human instinct. If we see our enemies as people, then there are limits to how badly we treat them. If they’re cockroaches, running dogs, maggots, or in this case, invading bacteria, then anything we do in response is entirely ok.

    Let’s be better than that. Both sides here are human. The cops are just doing what humans do when they have a sense of entitlement combined with way too much firepower and a lack of empathy, while the rioters are doing what humans do when they feel they’ve been oppressed and ignored for too long.

    Can I still call him a dipshit?

    they may all be human, but only some of them are humane

    @7 Part of the problem may be that cops don’t just happen to lack empathy in this situation, they are trained to it. The more militarised the police the more they encourage each other and new recruits to see the public as ‘the enemy’ to justify to themselves the fact they are using military type weapons.

    It becomes circular as well, police treat a community as an enemy, that community reacts by not co-operating with even peaceful day to day policing, this reinforces the view among police that ‘those people’ are suspicious. In some cases the whole thing can veer towards actual war – I think much of the Troubles in Northern Ireland had as much to do with this dynamic as with the political issues that provided the official reasons.

    Yup, just like the Holocaust in Germany. /s

    I feel bad going straight to the Godwin, but it was unavoidable.

    Also just since it was mentioned: http://www.yivoencyclopedia.org/printarticle.aspx?id=2126#id0eocac

    TL;DR A bunch of Jewish Surnames are Germanic because the Prussians forced them to have legal Surnames. (Partially because Yiddish is a West Germanic language, but less so.)
