Michael Savage has fired up the outrage machine and is demanding that the Senate Republicans refuse to confirm her as attorney general on the specious grounds that she’s a “radical” and a “left-wing ideologue.” Of course, in Savage’s world, anyone to the left of Pol Pot is a radical leftist.
“What a telling name, Lynch – a lynch mob is about to take over,” Savage said. “This woman is a radical that should never be confirmed for the Attorney General’s office. She is as dangerous if not more dangerous than Holder. She has no business in the Attorney General’s office; she is an extreme left-wing ideologue. Just understand what’s at stake: If he puts this one in, we’re going to have two years of Hell in this country.”
Savage especially took issue with Lynch’s opposition to new laws restricting voting rights, which disproportionately affect African-Americans, calling her a “radical leftist” pawn of Al Sharpton who is “too biased to be an Attorney General.”
Bear in mind that this is a woman who was confirmed as a U.S. Attorney twice by a unanimous vote in the Senate. It’s a little hard to make the case that she’s suddenly too radical for the DOJ.
