Savage Wants Star Chamber to Punish Politicians He Disagrees With

Michael Savage has gone full-on totalitarian, imagining a “people’s tribunal” that would “try” both politicians and journalists who do things he doesn’t like. Isn’t it funny when these alleged advocates of “freedom” copy the sort of thing found in communist countries?

He said that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, his predecessor Leon Panetta, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC president Phil Griffin should all be called before the tribunal since they are all “people who damaged this country most severely.”

Savage gave an idea of how the imaginary tribunal would work: “Department of Education, Arne Duncan, for lowering educational standards in America and brainwashing our children. Arne Duncan, people’s tribunal. ‘Mr. Duncan, step before the people, what actually did you achieve while you were here as secretary of education, Mr. Duncan?’ ‘Well I taught the children how to put a condom on a cucumber.’ ‘OK, next case, 25 years in Siberia.’”

I’m guessing he was fondling himself while dreaming about being able to throw his political enemies into one of those concentration camps he falsely claims Obama is building.

    He was only fondling himself because he loves the Constitution so much.

    It’s almost like they use a blanket of patriotism and freedom-love to try and cover the horrific shit they say and do! Seriously, though, this reminds me of Glenn Beck’s vision some years ago of creating a conservative/libertarian utopia, which John Stewart gleefully pointed out sounded an awful lot like a communist collective.

    Has he been practicing knitting?

    But on the plus side – at least when he’s fondling his cucumber, it won’t get a communicable disease!

    Why so liberal Mr Savage?

    Wouldn’t you rather just have their doors kicked in, preferably in the middle of the night , and then taken out in the street and shot like the dogs they are? I mean, don’t hold back, tell us how you really feel..

    And after he’s done with all these running dog traitors, the next ones to go after are all those “elites”: the university professors, climate scientists, and other people who say things he doesn’t like. I’ll bet a little time down on the farm doing some hard physical labor would help to educate them, or maybe re-educate would be a better word. That would clearly be the best way to move the country forward. By a Great Leap, no less.

    I still think Michael Savage is pulling an elaborate Poe, making more and more extreme statements too see how far the loony right will follow him.

    Sure, but the commies were killing the wrong innocent people.

    Savage can’t help it, according to his book he has only a few days left to stop the cumming civil war.

    Michael Savage has gone full-on totalitarian….

    Often the result when utopians’ perferred politicians don’t get elected. Or when they are elected, but are forced to reach a compromise on legislation with the representatives elected by other people. Or when their preferred policies are enacted, but reality just doesn’t work that way.

    Assuming that Savage ever managed to get his tribunal implemented, how long do you think it would be before it turned on him?

    His standard for guilt seems to be something along the lines of ‘doing or saying things I don’t like’. It seems likely that the tribunal would eventually fall under the control of somebody who doesn’t like something Savage said.

  • timgueguen

    Funny how these guys, who go on and on about Obama being an evil socialist, use lefty sounding terms like people’s tribunal for their fantasised kangaroo court.

  • Ken Keenan

    Apologies for Godwinning the thread but guess who had a people’s court? Yeah, fancy that.

  • fifthdentist

    It would be great to have a simulation of where the right-wing fringe’s policies would lead us if fully enacted. But it’s really hard to simulate the conditions in Berlin on May 1, 1945.* I guess we’ll just have to make do with Somalia.

    * Thanks, Ken Keenan, for pre-Godwinning the thread.
