Savage: Obama Deliberately Bringing In Ebola to Kill White People

Michael Savage, the completely unhinged right wing talk show host, has a cute new conspiracy theory: President Obama is deliberately bringing Ebola into the United States in order to spark an epidemic to wipe out white people and turn America into a third-world country.

He claimed that a treasonous Obama “wants to infect the nation with Ebola,” warning that the president decided to send U.S. service members to West Africa in hopes that one of the soldiers would contract Ebola and bring it back home.

If we had a legitimate president with a conscience he would resign,” Savage said in reaction to the Dallas Ebola case. “He would say, ‘You know what, I meant well but I screwed up at every level, I’m resigning.’ But you don’t have such a situation, you have a zealot who has no conscience.”

Savage suggested that Obama seeks to bring the Ebola epidemic to America in order to turn the U.S. into a Third World nation and bring the country down: “That’s the way to make things fair and equitable. You can’t have a nation with such good health in a world where there’s such sickness. Obama wants equality and he wants fairness and it’s only fair that America have a nice epidemic or two or three or four in order to really feel what it’s like to be in the Third World. You have to look at it from the point of view of a leftist.”

It’s revealing, I think, that people like Savage don’t have any intelligent criticisms of the president. If they did, they wouldn’t have to resort to these bizarre conspiracy theories that attempt to turn Obama into a Batman villain. The depressing thing is that there are millions and millions of people who actually buy into this bullshit.

    Is he suggesting that blacks are more resistant to ebola than “white Americans?”

    Great point!!!

    I’ve been watching the endless parade of nonsense since before Obama was elected and just wondered whether these people were stupid, lying, crazy, or all three at once.

    The christofascists do concentrate on such subjects as Obama’s Kenyan birthplace, Moslem religion, what color suit he wears. how he walks off an airplane, and calling Michelle Obama fat, large, and claimng she is a transexual.

    Plus invented conspiracies involving the emerging disease of the day, FEMA concentration camps, the UN Agenda 21 armies, the Illuminati, and the Space Reptiles.

    This is mental fog for people who don’t have any thoughts. It doesn’t even rise to the level of trivia.

    You can’t have a nation with such good health in a world where there’s such sickness.

    Compared to most West European counties the overall health of the United States is not all that great.

  • garnetstar

    Because the Republicans’ methods of turning us into a “Third World” country are not working fast enough.

    …“That’s the way to make things fair and equitable. You can’t have a nation with such good health in a world where there’s such sickness.

    There is something drastically wrong with Michael Savage’s mind. I can’t tell what it is though, lying, crazy, stupid or all three.

    1. You can have rich nations with good health statistics that are fair and equitable. This is true of most of the First World western democracies. The best examples are probably the Scandinavian countries.

    2. The USA isn’t a particularly healthy nation in the world. It ranks 37th in performance of its medical system. Average lifepans aren’t the highest, infant and maternal morbidy and mortality are low by world standards. In some areas, average lifepans are falling.

    The Texas Ebola patient is a black man. Barack Obama is a black man. Coincidence? You decide.

    (In case it isn’t obvious to everybody, that is a parody of the way Savage and his kind think.)

    Despite the claim by many in the U.S. health policy community that international comparison is not useful because of the uniqueness of the United States, the rankings have figured prominently in many arenas. It is hard to ignore that in 2006, the United States was number 1 in terms of health care spending per capita but ranked 39th for infant mortality, 43rd for adult female mortality, 42nd for adult male mortality, and 36th for life expectancy.3 These facts have fueled a question now being discussed in academic circles, as well as by government and the public: Why do we spend so much to get so little?

    Comparisons also reveal that the United States is falling farther behind each year (see graphProbability of Death for Boys and Men 15 to 60 Years of Age in Sweden, Australia, and the United States, 1970–2007.).

    Quote from the NEJM article in #5.

    Not only does the USA rank #1 in health care spending but high 30s-low 40’s in health outcome statistics but…we are going downhill!!!

    Funny, this seems to apply to the previous President much more than it does to Obama.

    raven “2. The USA isn’t a particularly healthy nation in the world. It ranks 37th in performance of its medical system. Average lifepans aren’t the highest, infant and maternal morbidy and mortality are low by world standards.”

    Yes, but if you don’t look at the numbers, the USA is #1.

     

    “In some areas, average lifepans are falling.”

    But that’s because of all that Socialism. Thanks Obama!

    That part is far more true than you pretend to not realize, Mr Savage.

    Why do we spend so much to get so little?

    Because in this country everyone involved wants to make a profit over and above overhead. When medicine is socialized overhead just has to be paid, no profit needed.

    This is not that hard.

    Michael Savage is claiming President Obama is deliberately bringing Ebola into the United States in order to spark an epidemic to wipe out white people and turn America into a third-world country.

    Here is a post with Louis Farrakhan claiming Ebola is part of a plot to depopulate the undeveloped world and kill brown people:

    http://freethoughtblogs.com/amilliongods/2014/10/04/louis-farrakhan-more-ebola-conspiracy-theories/

    I’m sooo confused …

    Perhaps we could stuff Savage and Louis Farrakhan into a room where they can fight it out. Surely the power of truth will correctly decide which one is correct.

    I say we weld the door shut, YouTube the confrontation, it has to be good for over a million hits, pour concrete around the room and establish it as a monument to stupidity and the fact that when two sides fight there is no guarantee that either is even close to the truth.

  • dan4

    Is there any way, besides actually listening to Savage’s show (barf) where I can find out what Savage’s sponsors are, so I can refuse to buy their products?

  • sunsangnim

    It’s insane that there’s an entire industry devoted to generating criticisms of the president that have no basis in reality, while there are so many legitimate issues that are overlooked by the mainstream media. Good thing there are a few sources like Glenn Greenwald and Democracy Now that can come up with more substantive criticisms of the Obama administration.

  • tsig

    The only way that Obama can be a legitimate president is to quit being president. Catch 44

    “Is he suggesting that blacks are more resistant to ebola than “white Americans?””

    There’s some evidence that some people in West Africa have a natural immunity to Ebola so if he is suggesting that, he may not be completely wrong (for once).

    Meanwhile, now that there’s a confirmed case of Ebola in the US I demand that all countries not yet infected impose an immediate ban on flights in and out of the US.

  • ursamajor

    Raven- I’ve been watching the endless parade of nonsense since before Obama was elected and just wondered whether these people were stupid, lying, crazy, or all three at once.

    In the case of Savage and his guest hosts I lean toward crazy with enough word salad being spewed that it is impossible to tell at any time which of the voices they are responding to.

  • birgerjohansson

    You have all got it wrong! Ebola was invented by white bioscientists to kill off black people. Fortunately Louis Farrkhan of Nation of Islam has found out the truth:

    http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Minister_Louis_Farrakhan_9/article_101804.shtml

    But creating a virus for genocide must be very expensive. Maybe the whites -who created Ebola to kill black people- and Obama-who uses Ebola to kill white people- shared the costs?

  • howardhershey

    And here I thought Ebola was a natural disease that is being spread by the consequences of poverty, ignorance, traditions (and ease of travel across long distances) that help spread it. That must be my crazy thinking.

  • rationalinks

    Wait, I thought God created Ebola to punish us for allowing the gayhomos to marry? Who…does…number two…work…for!!!
