Savage Birthright

I might have been premature, readers, in awarding Dumbest Comment of the Month to Crazy Pammy (see below). Looney-tune Michael Savage is making it a tough competition:

Crazy guyBut basically, if you’re talking about a day like today, Martin Luther King Junior Day, and you’re gonna understand what civil rights has become, the con it’s become in this country. It’s a whole industry; it’s a racket. It’s a racket that is used to exploit primarily heterosexual, Christian, white males’ birthright and steal from them what is their birthright and give it to people who didn’t qualify for it.

Take a guess out of whose hide all of these rights are coming. They’re not coming out of women’s hides. Are they? No, there’s only one group that’s targeted, and that group are white, heterosexual males. They are the new witches being hunted by the illiberal left using the guise of civil rights and fairness to women and whatnot.

Poor Savage, deprived of his “birthright” by the “illiberal left,” who just want to “steal… [his] birthright and give it to people who didn’t qualify for it.” That, readers, is some prose to savor on a January evening.

    No home addresses here. I don’t know if that address is easy to find on the Internet or not, and I don’t care. We don’t print people’s home addresses on my weblog.

    Nice tag Dumpendebat.

    As far as Savage’s commentary, what the hell birthright is he talking about? What the hell is a birthright anyway? Last I knew, we’re pretty much rightly entitled to get up and go to work and that’s about it. If as a white heterosexual I’m entitled to something, please get it to me asap. Especially if it comes with fries.

    It’s too bad that some people don’t understand that King’s thoughts about civil rights extend far beyond the black population. He frequently noted that civil rights would directly benefit our society as a whole, not just blacks. I think some people may not understand that the Jim Crow laws also hammered a lot of the whites in the south. I once read that something like 40 or 60 percent of the eligible white population were barred from voting when poll taxes were put in place. The Jim Crow era wasn’t just about race, it was about class and King recognized that. It’s too bad that Savage doesn’t recognize the same.


    Great post by hank dagny at LQ

    Here’s how you do it, “LQ READER” –

    Great post by hank dagny at LQ

    If you cut-n-paste an entire blog post or article into the comments section here, I’m going to remove it. This time I have taken the time to link to your blog post for you. Next time I won’t bother to do that.

  6. Stram:

    Most people who know history are aware of the fact those ‘Democrats’ who did not support the Civil Rights Act of 1965 were ‘Dixiecrats’ and they became, and still are now, Republicans. In fact, Republicans are still fighting against that Civil Rights legislation. (see WP link below)

    Another HUGE fallacy of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 is that “Democrats did not support it”. This is just another bold-faced lie by revisionists like Hank Dagny and his partners at ‘LQ’. Instead of making up rhetoric that fits your position it’s very easy to verify things by simply doing some fact checking beforehand.

    HERE IS WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN CONGRESS BACK IN 1965 for those of you who deal in facts and not hyperbole;

    “The two numbers in each line of this list refer to the number of representatives voting in favor and against the act, respectively”.

    Senate: 77–19

    Democrats: 47–17
    Republicans: 30–2
    House: 333–85

    Democrats: 221–61
    Republicans: 112–24
    Conference Report:

    Senate: 79–18

    Democrats: 49–17
    Republicans: 30–1
    House: 328–74

    Democrats: 217–54
    Republicans: 111–20

    (You can get this information simply by going to Wikipedia, under ‘Voting Rights Act’)

    Now, ‘LQ reader’, is it really a ‘Great post by hank dagny at LQ”, or is it just more of the same made up bullshit?


  7. Stram:

    Mike Savage never ceases to amaze me and he’s probably even more of a racist and sexist than Rush Limbaugh, only with a smaller audience.

    At least with Savage his listerners are aware of his bigoted views unlike the subtleness of Limbaugh and his listeners when they imply that, ‘if only the poor Negros only knew which Party had their best interests in mind’ they’d be so much better off.

    Nice post, Mr Filius.

  8. dumpendebat:

    They don’t come crazier than Michael Savage, that’s for sure. He makes Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity look like a couple of College Democrats.

    I don’t know if Savage is on the radio here in Pittsburgh (but I’d be surprised if he isn’t). I used to listen to him occasionally when I was living in the D.C. area. He’s way more entertaining than any other AM-radio wingnut, because he’s so out there.

    I heard him assert once that Iraqi insurgents were able to read email communications between US Army officers in Iraq and the Pentagon, and that that’s why so many soldiers keep getting injured and killed by IEDs.

    That “great post by Hank Dagny” is, of course, standard right-wing boilerplate (Libs and Dems exploit the Black Man for their own nefarious reasons, etc, etc).

  9. Stram:

    Savage is on the radio where I live and it’s good comedy sometimes, although like Limbaugh, O’Reilly and Hannity, I can only take about 3-5 minutes of their lying nonsense at a time.

    As for the “great post by Hank Dagny”, David Duke could have, and probably did, write the same bs.

  10. LQ reader:

    First of all Savage realizes how dangerous you liberals are, you can’t handle the truth!!!!

    And Stram you could’t refute anything in that post! it is so true you liberals keep the black man down, New Orleans has been run by liberals for decades as has Dteroit and so on and so on. Those cities should be flourishing, wonder why they are not. Lived in by democrats run by democrats haha

    Oh If Rush is a racist then why does he let a black man sub for him on his show, that stinks of racism ehh

  11. LQ reader:

    Oh THATS right they are only black if the toe the liberal line otherwise they are uncle Toms

  12. dumpendebat:

    Good old Michael Savage is indeed on the air here in Pittsburgh, it turns out: weeknights 20:00-23:00 on WPGB (FM 104.7).

    In fact, WPGB features the whole kooky-con talk-radio pantheon — Rush, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, in addition to Savage Nation. What a treat for Western Pennsylvania radio listeners!

  13. Stram:

    “And Stram you could’t refute anything in that post!”

    I destroyed the ‘post’ with the facts, numbnuts.

  14. Hanque:

    Here are my thoughts on civil rights legislation and history. Both parties in Congress had a majority of members that supported it. Eisenhower’s administration pushed civil rights reforms and so did Kennedy’s. LBJ continued that movement. LBJ was critical to its success because he came from the South.

    I personally believe that the WWII generation’s greatest legacy was the civil rights act. These people came to Congress and also served in both Republican and Democratic administrations and they made fundemental and far reaching changes to the status quo. Both parties can and should proudly share the credit.

    It is absolutely shameful for some to abuse the legacy of MLK and the sacrifices that he and his peers (legislative and otherwise) made to enrich our nation with the civil rights act. Savage can talk all he wants, but at the end of the day there is no doubt in my mind that our country is far better from the efforts of that generation.

  15. Stram:

    Hanque, you’re sooooooo diplomatic. That’s a good thing, btw.

  16. dumpendebat:

    Hanque is right. His last comment is right on the money, as far as I’m concerned.
