I think he's an idiot, and kind of a hatemonger. I find that guys like Rush Limbaugh make a few good points sometimes, are well-read and such, but Savage just comes off like a total wacko to me, he's in a neigborhood of insanity all by himself.

name one thing that he has said to justify the above statements (friendly arguing...no need for hostility)

I agree. If the republicans want to see Hillary Clinton in the White House, just nominate him.

One thing? That would mean that I only have to listen to his radio show for about 11 seconds or so. He comes up with the most ridiculous and preposterous solutions for things period. People like him never accomplish anything because they are such extremists, and just generally mean, spiteful and filled with tons of hatred.

and he is sitll a multi millionaire who went form a small local radio show to a huge nationwide show that is listened to by many...

if you listen to him and form your own opinions yuou might realize, like i have, that he is one of the smartest men Ive ever listened to, and very well educated

but again ill reiterate, please tell me one thing..

Because he is not afraid to tell it straight. He will just as fast tell his listeners that W is a pussy as point out that Hitlery Clinton wants absolute power (which she does). Most people cannot handle hearing truth that way.

as a president could you imagine his style being diplomatic at all?

how many wars do you think we would be in because of his mouth?

if you listen to him and form your own opinions yuou might realize, like i have, that he is one of the smartest men Ive ever listened to, and very well educated

i've listened to him TONS, and i think they guy is a jack ass. complete egomaniac. i swear, he could spend an entire show whining about how he starts all of these trends and ****, but doesn't get credit for them. then, go on about how great he is, in a slightly pseudo-humble way.

i swear, a few years ago, everytime i'd walk into a room and hear his show, he'd be frothing at the mouth about homosexuals. he doesn't seem to be obessed with them anymore, but he's still an idiot about it. now, he's obsessed with muslims, and i really don't think we need to be focusing all of our time on that.


edit: oh, let's not forget that he wouldn't listen to the people. geez, can that guy get through a single phone call without yelling at them, cutting them off, and/or hanging up on them? that guy is a freakin' dick. people call in to tell him how great he is, and he tears them a new one.

(support meaning they should run, not that I will vote for them)

Examples? To be honest I haven't listened to his show, so I'm curious. All I know is that *supposedly* he coined the term "Islamofascist", which is a real misnomer. "Islamosocialist" would be more accurate, but that's another thread...

BTW, I disagree with your use of the word "homophobe". That word implies that he's afraid of homosexuals.

Y'know, I'm not afraid of cats, I just don't like them. They're whores that care only about themselves. F-ck cats.

Countless examples really, just type his name into youtube and you'll see what im talking about.

An example of his homosexual views : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpUxxls8iiE


BTW, I disagree with your use of the word "homophobe". That word implies that he's afraid of homosexuals. .
I used the word on purpose just for that reason. IMO the people that feel the need to aggressivly insult and demonize homosexuals(or any portion of the population) are in essence afraid of them. Evangelicals for example are scared to death of gays. Scared their kids will be recruited, scared our country will be overrun by sodomites, and so.....

And in the same way, "Antisemitism" has come to mean strictly hatred of Jews, despite the fact that there are other semitic peoples.

When you say "They care only about themselves" you're implying that some commie is better.

I don't want an elected official to care about me. I don't want an elected official to know I exist. He should mind his own business and govern matters pertaining to keeping the status quo.

No, I'm challenging the dictionary definition. Let's look up another phobia shall we.

Actually let's have a look at the definition of "phobia":




pho·bi·a /ˈfoʊbiə/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[foh-bee-uh] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun

a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.



OK how about arachnophobia:




a·rach·no·pho·bi·a (ə-rāk'nə-fō'bē-ə, -nō-) Pronunciation Key
n. An abnormal fear of spiders.


[arachn(id) + -phobia.]

a·rach'no·phobe' n., a·rach'no·pho'bic adj.



So why have we made an exception for homophobia? Colloqualism, which is technically incorrect.

Michael Savage is the pseudonym of Dr. Michael Alan Weiner, Ph.D. (born March 31, 1942). Savage is a controversial independent American conservative talk radio host, author and popular political commentator.

Michael Savage was born Michael Alan Weiner in the borough of the Bronx in New York City to a Russian Jewish family.[5] He grew up in Queens and graduated from Jamaica High School, a public high school in New York City.

Therefore we can shoot at suspicious people before they kill lots of people...but savage thinks we should have bombed them a few times, then we would kill the same maount of Iraqis without losing any troops, cutting the deaths tremendously... Whats wrong with that? well i know your arguments, but I agree with it.
