Savage Vows to ‘Fight to the Death’ Over Imagined Plan

If there’s one thing the right wing is good at, it’s pseudo-macho vows to fight and die in the face of imagined persecution or conspiracies that don’t actually exist. Michael Savage demonstrates this in fantasizing that Obama is going to implement reparations for slavery next year.

“I would fight to my death before I pay one dime in reparations and I would go to jail before I would pay one cent in reparations,” Savage said. “That would be the last straw for me, if they ever try to pull that one off, I would lead a reparations rebellion in this country. No matter what my age would be, if I had the strength from God, I would lead a reparations rebellion against the government and it would be an armed rebellion.”

Savage continued: “I would lead an armed rebellion against the government if they try to push that one down my throat after ripping off my life with affirmative action and welfare, I’m sick of it! And this gangster keeps getting away with it, this criminal in the White House, day in and day out, one lie after another, imperious, arrogant, hostile, aimed only at the white middle class. Look at his policies and tell me who he’s going after. Open your eyes, you idiots!”

Every day, Savage sounds more and more like a KKK leader, doesn’t he? And so brave. So very brave.

    Open your eyes, you idiots!

    He is correct about one thing at least.

  • sugarfrosted

    @1 I did that, got me to stop listening to savage early into his descent into total madness.

  • colnago80

    Well, looks like ole Mikey ain’t going to relinquish his standing in the hierarchy of nutcases without a fight.

  • Ichthyic

    push that one down my throat

    it’s amazing how enamored the right is of using that phrasing…

  • Ichthyic

    …oh, and I call “Civil Rights Gangstas” as a hip hop band name.

    Savage Vows to ‘Fight to the Death’ Over Imagined Plan

    I don’t believe that.

    Savage like most rant and ravers doesn’t want to fight to the death over anything.

    He wants someone else to do it!!! The best martyrs are always…someone else.

    PS It’s always this way. The planners of the Iraq war didn’t fight in it. They mostly didn’t send their kids. They sent our kids instead.

  • sugarfrosted

    @6 By in large, they sent the kids of minorities. It’s basically their only possible way out of poverty.

    Savage is middle class?

  • tbp1

    “Brave, brave, brave Sir Robin…”

  • busterggi

    Don’t think he won’t fight to the death over this – look how he enlisted and fought to the death in Viet Nam!

  • dingojack

    busterggi – ‘…oh — it got better!’

    :) Dingo

    Re busterggi @ #10

    He was probably a lefty at the time, being a student at Berserkly.

  • Die Anyway

    “… criminal in the White House, day in and day out, one lie after another, imperious, arrogant, hostile,…”

    For a minute there I was so sure he was talking about George W. Bush.

  • John Pieret

    if they ever try to pull that one off …

    So, even you know it is something no one is actually proposing and that knot in your knickers is just for show?

    Savage is middle class?

    His picture looks pretty middle-class to me.

    Or aren’t you current with the fact that “middle-class” is a dog whistle for “white?”

  • freehand

    “Look at his policies and tell me who he’s going after. Open your eyes, you idiots!”

    .

    Actually, it looks like he’s going after Muslim terrorists in the Near East – like bin Laden. Personally, I’d rather that he bring the troops home and use them to rebuild our rickety infrastructure, establish a smart grid, and prepare for continued and worsening water troubles.

  • tomocar

    So if they tried to take 1 cent he’d go to jail but if they tried to take 1 dime he’d die fighting? So he thinks his life is worth 9 cents?

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    “I would fight to my death before I pay one dime in reparations and I would go to jail before I would pay one cent in reparations,” Savage said.

    He seems to think that he, personally, would be required to pay these reparations. If I didn’t know better, I’d think he’s feeling guilty about something.

    And as noted above it is pretty damn funny that he’s not willing to die over the first 9 cents (jail only for that) but he’s willing to die if they push it to a dime. I’m sure Ted Nugent is willing to stand alongside him on this.

    D. C. Sessions “His picture looks pretty middle-class to me.”

    He’s talking like he’s in the middle class (essentially: “I’m mad at all these things he’s planning to do to me. All his plans are aimed at the middle class”). A net worth of $18M puts him well above it.

  • D. C. Sessions

    Modus, money has nothing to do with “middle class.”

    D. C. Sessions, what does? Temperament? Haircut?
