Savage and the Mythical War on White People

Several times a day as I peruse the right wing blogosphere and media I find myself asking, “What fucking planet do these people live on?” Like in what alternate universe could any sentient human being believe that the federal government is preparing to wage a war on white people? Michael Savage does, or at least says he does to sell books to the dullards who listen to him.

“This entire government is geared up to fight a war against white people,” Savage said. “What if a group of white people had rioted or does riot in America after Obama grants amnesty? What if they loot and they burn? You know and I know the attorney general is not going to come out and say, ‘I feel your pain.’”

Savage added: “Could this be the most racist administration in American history? Are we allowed to ask the question? Do you know of a modern American presidency that was as racist as the Obama administration?”

Well let’s see, we had hundreds of heavily armed white people show up at the Bundy Ranch and virtually declare war on the federal government and what happened? Absolutely nothing. Not a single tear gas canister, not a single person arrested, not a single shot fired. Now, what do you think would have happened in Ferguson if all those protesters showed up with AK-47s and AR-15s?

Savage also claimed that the Department of Homeland Security isn’t paying attention to groups like ISIS because they are too busy “planning your insurrection” and preparing to gun down “all you evil white crackers.”

Oh please, do wake me up when the government starts gunning down white people. I’ll be sleeping peacefully in the meantime.

    Umm, yeah, aren’t most of the personnel of the armed forces who would carry out the actual slaughter white themselves? LIke, the DHS goons, aren’t the majority of them white? Are they going to be executed after they’ve executed all the other whites?

    Does that present a problem to this theory?

    Hey, the competition for attention on the whackjob right is pretty fierce. Michael Weiner has to compete with the likes of Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Bryan Fisher, and any number of other nutcases that Brayton links to every day on this blog. The best way to get that attention is to out crazy the competition. It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it.

    I can’t bring myself to go look directly, so will someone of stronger stomach please let me know how many words Savage dedicates to his outrage about Kent State?

  • raven

    Most of the government, most of the military, and most of the police are…white.

    Michael “Savage” Weiner is just being absurd.

    Woodrow Wilson was fairly racist, and a fan of “Birth of a Nation” when he and his family were given a private showing of the movie before it was released nationally, and he also favored segregation. Warren G. Harding was an honorary member of the KKK; that would seem to indicate racism as well. I’m not sure how more or less “modern” Savage means, or how racist some previous or prior US presidents were, but Wilson and Harding stand out.

    Why is the DHS planning my insurrection? Isn’t that my job?

  • dingojack

    Can’t leave it to people to plan their own insurrections, Modus, they’d probably screw it up*. Only the government can do a really good insurrection**.

    @dhall #6: I don’t think we have to look further back than Nixon to find an actual racist president.

  • weatherwax

    Actually, in my own experience the military is very well integrated. And beyond a couple goofballs, I can’t see any of the people I serve with obeying any orders to slaughter anyone based on skin color.

  • weatherwax

    I’m still believe Savage is just performing one giant poe, and is laughing his ass off at all the idiots who hang on his every word.

    The most racist administration in American history? More racist than, say, those white Presidents who actually owned black people?!

  • ursamajor

    Unusually coherent for Savage. This is one of the few times he does not come off as either completely stoned or post lobectomy.

    Savage also claimed that the Department of Homeland Security isn’t paying attention to groups like ISIS

    Is Iraq the homeland now? This is like claiming the EPA didn’t issue my tax rebate quickly enough.
