Savage Flips Out Over Gay General, Compares Him to ISIS

The Pentagon held a celebration of gay pride month, which is June, and a Brig. General introduced his husband to the audience. Cue the howls of outrage from the anti-gay bigots, who are absolutely terrified of the idea that gay people can actually serve their country. I especially love this reaction from Michael Savage.

During his remarks at the Pentagon’s celebration of LGBT Pride Month on Tuesday, Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor, who has served in the Army for 27 years, introduced his husband to attendees. Predictably, Taylor’s remarks and other speeches by LGBT service members did not go over well with the far-right, including talk show host Michael Savage, who on Tuesday blasted the Pride event and even managed to draw a connection to ISIS.

“So this is the world we’re living in,” Savage sighed. “This is what Obama has done to America, this is what he has done to the military. A man, a general now, introduces his husband at an event like this. Do you have any idea why ISIS is insane as they are? Do you have any idea that you are looking at two sides of a coin here? You see a ninth-century view of the world from a point of view of ISIS, and you see a view of the world that is so warped and so accepted in America as the norm, that most people’s heads are spinning around the world not understanding how a super power became a ‘stupid power’ in one generation.”

Yeah, it’s just like ISIS! What, no Hitler comparison? Oh Savage, you’re disappointing me. Such a ridiculous comparison: “I don’t like ISIS’ view of the world and I don’t like gay people’s view of the world, which are entirely opposite one another, so therefore they are two sides of the same coin and just the same.” Damn, thinking is hard, isn’t it Michael?

    You see a ninth-century view of the world from a point of view of ISIS, and you see …

    … a first-century view of the world from the view of anti-gay bigots and they are, in fact, but two sides of the same coin.

    From his Wiki entry, it would appear that ole Mikey never served in the military despite coming of age during the Vietnam War. Quite some hutzpah criticizing a brigadier general in the army by a draft dodger.

    Do you have any idea why ISIS is insane as they are?

    Because they hate us for our freedoms, Michael? Which, of course, means we need to give up our freedoms so that ISIS won’t kill us in our beds.

    Do you have any idea why ISIS is insane as they are?

    No, but I sure would like to know why the US right wing wants so badly to be as insane as ISIS.

    …that most people’s heads are spinning around the world not understanding how a super power became a ‘stupid power’ in one generation.

    If most people’s head our spinning about the US being a “stupid power” — great term by the way, I may start using it — then I think it’s most likely over the fact that US voters keep giving US Republicans so much political power.

    I was at their wedding. It was a wonderful ceremony, with guards ensuring the pastor kept to Obama’s script and everything. Afterwards, they sped away in a drone with “Just so-called ‘married'” scrawled on it.

    The other side of the ISIL coin? American fundamentalism. And you, Savage, it’s nauseating Islamophobic mouthpiece. Gee, I wonder why ISIL has no difficulties convincing young Muslims that America hates them and wants to enslave them? You’re their best recruiting tool!

    (Apparently Savage seems to think Gen. Taylor suddenly turned gay in the last few years and that’s all President Obama’s fault, despite being old enough to serve in the Army since at least 1988, when Ronnie Ray-gun was Prez).

    Re dingojack @ #6

    I read somewhere a few minutes ago that Taylor has been in a relationship with the gentleman for 18 years.

    Sounds like a win-win situation to me. ISIL gets recruits and the American Right gets more people frightened and into their camp. Which recruits for ISIL, which …

    You see a ninth-century view of the world from a point of view of ISIS,

    And the fact that Mikey is on the same side as ISIS on this issue doesn’t even give him a moment’s pause.

    In that case the general’s gay must have been caused by ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’.

  • Crip Dyke, Right Reverend Feminist FuckToy of Death & Her Handmaiden

    To begin: Why did the first queer general to come out and publicly introduce a spouse have to be named Randy?

    Really?

    This is the kind of thing that proves the existence of Loki.

    Next:

    Do you have any idea why ISIS is insane as they are?

    See how sane you are when your spouse is cut into 7 pieces and magically hidden across the earth in separate canonic jars…and yet he lives! And with all your power, the Great Deceiver makes it impossible for you to find the pieces and reassemble them. So you have to live, day after day, knowing that the love of your life is consciously living as a bunch of severed body parts and can do nothing until you reassemble him. Which you can’t. Because you can’t break through the veiling spells to find the pieces.

    The horror!

    I think I’d go insane too…

    They are two sides of the sams coin. A ninth century view of personal liberty, sexuality, nationalism, and religion vs. a 21st century view, with all of the radical differences between those perspectives in stark relief.

    Against my better judgement I listened to the audio. I was pleased at the end to hear that “thinking” about this gave him a migraine. This is great!

    All we have to do to cause this asshole pain is be ourselves!

    That’s a lot of Win!

  • David Eriksen

    Someone should share the biography of General von Stueben with Savage. Maybe then we could get an explanation of how Washington was an ISIS plant.

  • colnago80

    Re David Eriksen @ v#19

    I suspect that Weiner would either deny that von Steuben was gay or downplay his contributions to Washington’s Army.

    Switch hitting actor Randolph Scott was known as Randy to his friends.

    Hey, folks! Watch it with the Randy jokes. Some of us are a little sensitive.
