Michael Savage: "People Are Going To Call Me A Liberal, But Enough Is Enough"

He actually made a very good point in saying that we have many forms of gun control, in the form of the Gun Control Act of 1968, which prohibits many different people from owning firearms, but not people who are on anti-depressants.

He also went on to say that "Why did a woman who has a mentally unstable son have several different guns in the house?" and "Conservatives are the ones politicizing the issue by telling liberals not to politicize it"

34. And broken clocks are correct twice a day. And I'm sure there's a room in Hell that's a deep freeze.

Maybe something's starting, though. Maybe we've reached some sort of critical mass? I'm actually kinda glad to see this. Just hope what's fired up at the moment - doesn't fade.

That's all too often what our side tends to do, though. Make some inroads. Then assume the problem's solved, and it's time to roll over and go back to sleep. UNFORTUNATELY, that's the moment when the opposition is up, and dressed, and out the door - hellbent on overturning or dismantling whatever gains we just made. While we have our nice nap...

49. and no doubt he thinks himself quite virtuous for this.

That means he will wave it around, much like anti-woman forced pregnancy fetishists think themselves compassionate.

He will intensify his other hatreds because he feels so impressed with himself.

Edit: I have to admit however, that I am surprised--amazed, actually--he sees and exposes this basic repuke game: Conservatives politicizing issues by demanding that Liberals who expose repuke lies stop politicizing.

Still not sure where Coulter and Malkin will come down on the issue. I'm sure some how it will be Obama's fault.

9. LOL. Just went to his wikipedia page and it has been vandalized

 

'Savage was born Michael Alan Weiner in the Bronx, New York, one of three children of Benjamin and Rae Weiner; he comes from Russian Jewish heritage. He described his childhood as difficult, as he is a total douche. His father, the owner of an antique shop, died of a heart attack at age 57, and his mother died in 2003.'

12. Anti-depressants?

That would discriminate against everybody with fibromyalgia or other pain syndromes who depend on those meds to ease their pain.

I don't have a gun, nor do I want one. But I certainly resent the implication that people like me are a threat, simply because we take medications that take the edge off our constant pain.

I do, however, fully agree that the shooter's mother--knowing he was mentally unstable--had NO business keeping guns in the house.

I have never once had the desire to go on a shooting rampage.

Easy to demonize people he knows nothing about. Though I feel Savage is in more dire need of medication than anyone.

54. A coworker of mine who was taking prozac committed suicide.

Different than going on a shooting rampage but indicative that your experience might not be the same as others'.

Anecdotal in either case and therefore not worth much as an argument.

56. Antidepressants affect different people in different ways

I didn't say prozac is for everyone. There are many different options out there, ranging from medication to therapy to a mix of both. And any medication should be under the strict supervision of a medical professional.

That said, I was a bit hesitant about prozac at first, as I had heard horror stories. But it has been fixed over the years to avoid the nasty side effects. Again, it should be under supervision. My first dose was for two weeks.

All I can say is that I personally have benefitted from it, but everybody's different. And I can guarantee I won't go off on a violent rampage.

53. Not to split hairs, but Valium is an anti anxiety drug, not an anti-depressant

It can also work as a muscle relaxer. Anti-depressants are usually a more intense sort of medication.

35. Yeah, the real problem is depression, not gun proliferation

Fuck that shit. There is always an excuse from those who support policies that lead to mass murder. Let's institutionalize discrimination against those with mental illness because the stigma isn't already great enough.

Most people with mental illness are not remotely violent. I myself am a long time sufferer from depression, own no guns or weapons, and have never struck anyone since a fight in the fifth grade. So fuck Michael Savage. The problem is not those of us who seek medical treatment for an illness; its the national insanity that pretends millions of guns have nothing to do with the purpose they were designed for: killing.

about politics from Mike Savage. I'd rather hear about his proposals for Mental Health parity in all health insurance coverage, then I'll consider listening to whatever else he has to say on this topic.

I don't think we should be offering hate radio a platform here at DU.

41. I listened to the first 2 segments of the Savage Nation tonight, since Mike Malloy was off tonight.

If you're looking for a liberal talk show for the 9pm-midnight slot, check out Mike Malloy's show, stream at http://server2.whiterosesociety.org:8000/truthseeker or http://am950ktnf.com/

Malloy, who has an 8-year-old child, explained why he took tonight off:


I will not be on the air tonight. I can’t do it. I cannot sit behind a microphone and talk about yet another incomprehensible act of gun violence – this time against the complete innocence and vulnerability of children.

There are no words that can be said to provide any sort of comfort to the parents, grandparents, sisters and brothers of the children murdered in the sanctuary of a school classroom. The pain they will feel is beyond description – there is no way to express this sort of horror.

As for me . . . I am choking on the tears and anguish that other parents – those whose children were not murdered this bright Winter’s day – must be feeling.


I'll find audio of Savage's gun control commentary on YouTube over the weekend, since his fans upload the show on YouTube to make up for the lack of a formal podcast, and post at V&M.

In contrast, Savage's former timeslot competitor Mark Levin began accusing liberals of attacking liberty at first instinct after gun violence. Essentially a more eloquent, articulate version of "Obama's gunna take away awr gunz!" Until October, both Savage and Levin had shows in the 6-9pm ET timeframe, with different distributors. Now, both are syndicated by Cumulus Media, and Savage's show at 9pm ET is live after Levin.

42. Meanwhile Freepers are booing Savage:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2968887/posts

Tonight he’s snuggling right up to our Kenyan King at the globalist table and I’m bummed.

I think there is a pretty good chance that this and previous massacres may have been influenced if not “arranged” by various nefarious means in order to advance an agenda. The timing, right after re election and failure of the UN Small Arms treaty to disarm the American Peasantry is way too convenient for the regime to be a coincidence. Yet Savage refuses to even consider the possibility.

Has Savage been gotten to by the regime or is he just getting soft in his old age?

I took about 5 minutes of this leftist loving pap and shut him off.


After the shooting happened today I knew it would be a waste of time to listen to Savage tonight. He took the same stance during the Colorado shooting, blabbering on and on about restricting drum mags and blah blah blah. That is just one of those issues he is liberal about. He doesn’t seem to know much about firearms either which may be a big part of it. I’ll tune back in next week when he is done ranting about it.

this is more proof that the cons are just pushing bullshit, and they know what would help the country, but they're too hateful and political to drop their endless opposition. Kinda like after Nov 6 when suddenly cons were saying, oh well, what would it hurt to raise the tax rate a few points? after all their whining and screaming that it would kill the economy.

So they CAN drop the bullshit for a moment, under the right circumstances. Good to know.
