The Wingnut Strikes Back.

(cross posted at kickin it with cg and motley moose)

Back in July, it was more than confirmed what a wacko Michael Savage really is when he decided to direct his angry rants at autistic children.  Well in case you were hoping that he went back under the big dark rock from where he came, sorry to disappoint - he's at it again.

During the November 18 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Michael Savage said:

"You haven't seen any of what's coming in this country. You are going to see the wholesale replacement of competent white men, and I'm targeting exactly the group that's gonna be thrown out of jobs in the government. And I'll say it, and I'll be the first to say it, and I may be not the only -- the last to say it. I am telling you that there's gonna be a wholesale firing of competent white men in the United States government up and down the line, in police departments, in fire departments. Everywhere in America, you're going to see an exchange that you've never seen in history, and it's not gonna be necessarily for the betterment of this country."

Here's a listen if you feel like barfing a little.

Earlier in the segment, Savage said of President-elect Barack Obama:

"[W]hen you're socially promoted, you wind up as president of the United States. If you're socially promoted your whole life and nobody challenges you because you're of the proper constitution and composition and you look exactly right and no one's -- everyone's afraid to say a word to you, why, you then go to Harvard, you then go to the law review, you then get elected, you then get elected to the next level. This is what happens in a country that's intimidated by its own policies and its own fears."

During the presidential campaign, Savage repeatedly described Obama as an "affirmative action" candidate. And on his October 27 broadcast, Savage said that Obama "benefited from affirmative action, stepping over more qualified white men, I actually lost as a result of affirmative action, many times in my life. ... [W]e have America's first affirmative action candidate about to become president." and in February, Savage claimed that the Democratic presidential primary contest "is, or can be seen as, the first affirmative action election in American history." He added, "We have a woman and a multi-ethnic man running for office on the Democrat side. Is this not akin to an affirmative action election? Isn't that why the libs are hysterical, tripping over themselves to say amen and yes to this affirmative election vote?"

Media Matters also noted that Savage called"civil rights" a "con" and claimed that affirmative action stole his "birthright," and his "manhood."

There's only one way to describe this man's soul: UGLY

Wingnut Schadenfreude Thread

Tonight, we have a rendevous with history.

I believe those words were originally spoken by Ronald Regan in 1980, but I think it behooves us to take them back 28 years later.

Many moving diaries have been artfully written today. I certainly am unable to contribute, as I feel that electronic words fail to capture the monumental nature of what is set to transpire (starting) in less than 3 hours.
