Savage: Gays Want to Throw Christians To the Lions Again

Michael Savage continues his daily assault on reality, throwing everything he hates into a big pile and blaming it all on the gays and Muslim terrorists (never mind that those Muslim terrorists agree with him about the evils of The Gay). He says gay people want to throw Christians to the lions again, with help from the Muslims.

He also linked his false claim about pastors going to prison with last week’s ISIS massacre of European vacationers in Tunisia: “Gays will cheer. As they start throwing pastors in prison, you’ll see who’ll cheer them. Next we’ll get the arena and the lions, get the arena and the lions and bring them in from Tunisia.”

“I feel like I’m being punched left and right from the Supreme Court today, I’ve never saw anything like this in my life,” Savage said, before praising Mike Huckabee’s call to defy the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling.

I was going to make a joke about how those punches from left and right have clearly impaired his ability to think clearly, but in fact he’s thinking perfectly clearly. I think he knows exactly what he’s doing. If you want to become right-wing radio star, you have to come up with bizarre accusations and conspiracy theories about everything your audience hates on a daily basis. You have to somehow top the inane claims of the next host or you’ll lose your popularity.

    Yeah, it’s a tough world out there and the competition for listeners amongst the deluded reason challenged is fierce. That’s one of the reasons that ole Annie Coulter has been relegated to the back of the pack.

    Just wondering but is advising people to defy court rulings actually contempt of court and illegal even in America?

    I presume these radio shock jock klowns* have legal staff and advice before they go and spew their fecal vomits all over the airwaves but ..

    * Spelled with a ‘k’ here to differentiate these unfunny unintentional klowns from the intentional artistic clowns who are actually often funny and good.

    Sorry Beckikins, but you can’t get any lions from Tunisia – the last of the Barbary lions were wiped out in the 1890’s or thereabouts there :

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_lion

    The Barbary lion (Panthera leo leo), sometimes referred to as the Atlas lion, was an African lion population native to North Africa, including the Atlas Mountains, that is now considered extinct in the wild.[2] It is believed that the last wild Barbary lions died out or were killed in the 1950s and early 1960s. The last recorded shooting took place in the western Maghreb in 1942 near Tizi n’Tichka.[3]

    The Barbary lion was first described by the Austrian zoologist Johann Nepomuk Meyer under the trinomen Felis leo barbaricus on the basis of a type specimen from Barbary.[4]

    A lion from Constantine, Algeria was considered the type specimen of the specific name Felis leo used by Linnaeus in 1758.

    Lions – Asiatic I believe also used to roam Greece (hence Herculean labour no.1) and Syria too. Turns out these former lion populations were all killed off by humans many of whoem were Christians at least in some areas.

    I guess you could import an arena from Tunisia if you wanted to, but it’d be rather time taking, costly and impractical as well as unnecessary given the number of areas more locally

  • Al Dente

    Lions have to be fed. Why is Savage so anti-lion?

  • dingojack

    Stevo – ‘Klowns’? ‘KLOWNS’!!!!! Watch your insulting tone, Stevo. Oh – and go and SUCK DICKS (or someother activity associated with homosexual men) &etc.

    Just thought I’d save time and (furious) typing for another commenter … @@

    Al Dente – He’s not against Lions per se just ‘TEH GHEY’ Lions – like in the Wizard of Oz (Well maybe not gay, but certainly pretty camp). :)

    PS. Further research suggests you may be able to get indirectly Barbary lions from captivity :

    P. l. leo, known as the Barbary lion, originally ranged from Morocco to Egypt. It is extinct in the wild due to excessive hunting, as the last wild Barbary lion was killed in Morocco in 1942.[25][26] This was one of the largest of the lion subspecies,[27] with reported lengths of 3.0–3.3 m (9.8–10.8 ft) and weights of more than 200 kg (440 lb) for males. It appears to be more closely related to the Asiatic rather than sub-Saharan lions. A number of animals in captivity are likely to be Barbary lions,[28] particularly the 90 animals descended from the Moroccan Royal collection at Rabat Zoo.[29]

    Except these would have to be pretty tame probably and too valuable for breeding and conservation plus tourism to risk using to devour Christians I’d suggest. Perhaps we could just do them in CGI like the tiger inLife of Pi instead?

    Not that anyone’s actually going to feed Christians to lions again anyhow. Especially in the West.

    PPS. Lions apparently were the second most wide spread land mammal after humans -and there used to be a Barbary bear that’s gone extinct now too. The things you can learn..

    Savage would give those poor lions one hell of a case of indigestion.

    “I feel like I’m being punched left and right”

    Good. You deserve it.

    I used to wonder at the level of forethought or actual belief in what they themselves were spouting, till I realized there’s asbsolutely none of either.

    It’s all just performance art. Turn the camera on, start the mouth motor, and go.

  • llewelly

    yep. Conspiracy nonsense attracts right wing radio fans like a peacock’s tail attracts peahens. Biggest, most colorful, most eyes.

    Well, why not? This isn’t about hate. We’re just celebrating our Greco-Roman heritage.

    I have this vague memory that Glenn Stoll got fined and chased from state to state for doing that, but only because he was posing as a lawyer. I think they tried to revoke his bar qualifications too, but it turned out he had never taken a bar exam in the first place.

    I am fairly sure it’s legal so long as you are not offering it as legal advice as a seeming lawyer. That is as it should be, I think.

    You also need a poorly educated and gullible population.

    Savage: “I feel like I’m being punched left and right from the Supreme Court today, I’ve never saw anything like this in my life,” Savage said,

    It’s all right, Michael. We’ve “never saw” anything like you, either.

  • John Pieret

    @ 2 & 11:

    It can get tricky. As llewelly notes, people like Stoll can be prosecuted but less for simply saying that people should defy court orders but because they engage in an actually conspiracy to assist someone in doing so (as well as practicing law without a license). Generally speaking, simply saying that people should defy a SCOTUS decision is not contempt of court or illegal but is just free speech.

    Unfortunately, that is kinda a given in the US.

  • whheydt

    Sheesh… Feeding Christians to the lions didn’t work the last time. Why does he think it would work now? It’s almost like Christians evolved an immunity to being eaten by lions…

  • daved

    But think of all the commercial possibilities! I mean, you could have celebrities throwing out the first Christian at the start of the season. This could be a gold mine.

  • jufulu

    Most Christians can’t be eaten by lions these days. They have an anti-lion rock that they carry around with them. One of them showed it to me and told me that since she started wearing it, she hasn’t be attacked by any lions. I only paid $99.97 to get it from her so I’d be safe. I found a supplier and if you want one, I can sell you it at a discounted price.

  • thebookofdave

    Fly them in from Detroit, then. Sure, it’s far from home field, but I’m pretty sure they can be talked into an exhibition game for the right incentives.

    The homophobes in my local paper really have their panties in a wad today.

    This is one of the opinion pieces:

    The next target after the ruling: religious liberty by Rich Lowry

    http://www.mysanantonio.com/opinion/commentary/article/The-next-target-after-the-ruling-Religious-6363730.php

    This guy says some awful things about Justice Kennedy and then predicts that the gays won’t be satisfied with the rights that they have just won, but will go after religious rights.

    “The move against religious groups will surely start small, with some isolated, unsympathetic Christian institution, and then grow until what once had been called unimaginable becomes mandatory.”

    There was good news in my Sunday paper. There was a massive gay pride event downtown with a mass wedding included.

    There is much gnashing of teeth and outrage going on in San Antonio today. I love it!

    In all fairness, Ed, I would be happy to throw some Christians to the lions. Just make sure there’s a bottle of Pepto and some magnesium citrate capsules handy; the poor lions will be backed up like never before.

  • D. C. Sessions

    This guy says some awful things about Justice Kennedy and then predicts that the gays won’t be satisfied with the rights that they have just won, but will go after religious rights.

    Well, it’s not like there’s no precedent. Look what the wimmin did when they got the vote: before you knew it they were wanting wringer washers instead of the river rocks that God provided to Mary. And then come the 60s the n****rs got some so-called “rights” and haven’t been properly respectful since.

    Mind my words: no good can come of it!

  • StevoR

    @11. llewelly & 14. John Pieret : Okay. Thanks for those.

    People keep insisting that folks like Savage don’t believe what they say. [shrug] I assume they are True Believers® until I see evidence indicating otherwise. Their insane assertions are easy enough to fake, sure, if one has neither dignity nor honor, but the money they collect is from people of faith, so I don’t see why we should assume these folks can’t be. The religiously besotted have always found ways to make their beliefs self-serving.
