Audio: Financial crisis blame game gets more Savage

by Jeremy Hooper

First we saw Maine's Michael Heath connect gays (and God's wrath) to the financial crisis. Then we saw the Liberty Counsel warn Google that their gay acceptance would also have a fiscal impact. Now unhinged radio host Michael Savage (neé Weiner) has his turn:

Eh, he plays a role. Every civil rights battle has a heated, vitriolic figurehead who rails against the side of peaceful, reasoned progress, and Michael Savage is one of our fight's most prominent. So now, rather than get angry, we almost want to thank him. For in twenty years, when we prepare our historical documentary on the gay marriage battle, we're going to need clear-cut examples of the unscrupulous hate that still managed to infect the early 21st century. No on gives better biting soundbite than Michael Savage!

After railing against gay marriage, Savage said "the spiritual side of the downturn on Wall Street was directly related to the moral downturn" [Media Matters]

But...I like to mock the fetus! Does this mean I have to become gay now? I don't know if I want to wear assless chaps & a ballgag to mock the fetus. Decisions, decisions...

Why does this man still have a platform? Mock the fetus? Sounds like a bad techno song.

And what does he mean the goverment shouldn't be forcing him to deal with it? That would be the government forcing heteros into homo marriages against their will. THAT would be forcing. What a complete and total moron.
