Michael Savage Nailed It Monday Night (re: Zimmerman)

As far as I'm concerned Zimmerman was trying to play hero, he was trying to play Rambo... the minute Zimmerman opened that (car) door with a loaded gun in his pocket, is when he decided he was going to be in a shoot-out, was when he decided that he was going to take a chance with his life or someone else's life. And that chance, he took that chance and one man is dead, and one man is alive. The man who is dead had no gun, the man who is alive did have a gun. To me this case resides only on those facts. And I have to say that Zimmerman is guilty. Now I know many of you are going to be very angry at me, I expect that... but what if Trayvon had been a white kid, would you be just as defensive of Zimmerman as you are?


http://www.michaelsavage.wnd.com/2013/07/savage-says-zimmerman-guilty/

This guy is as crazy and as rude as they come, can't believe he's still on the air. But every once in awhile he lets the truth slip...

He basically summed up the sentiment of the vast majority of his own radio audience listeners...

Indeed, if Trayvon had been white, you wouldn't see all this support for Zimmerman. You wouldn't see people sending him money.

It's as plain as day. The only reason Zimmy was able to bail out of jail (twice) was because he killed a "black teenage thug" and like a dog whistle, it mobilized a certain segment of our society.

The wanton stereotyping and bare-naked prejudice being displayed by so many of his supporters is so fucking obvious.

1. this shocked me. a fair summary.

Sometimes the ideological lines are crossed
and blurred, and there's a glimpse into
something important; that there is a shred
of sanity in everyone. On the same planet,
at least once in a while, on the same
page at the same time.

4. First time I ever agreed with Savage. It

amazes me how many people think it's okay to gun down an unarmed man.

Even in the old west they would string this murderer up. Matt Dillon is in tears.

14. Remember the Dubai, Ports Deal?

Back in the days of Bush II, Michael Savage was the first and loudest critic of the outsourcing of U.S. security to a country that had dealings with Terrorists.

Savage even had Chuck Schumer on his show in support of blocking that deal.

This is the second time I've agreed with Savage.

5. Maybe while gun enthusiasts are fighting for their gun rights

they're also becoming more accountable regarding
the responsibility of having and using a gun.

This sounds like a thoughtful statement
from Michael Savage.
I assume (but don't know) he is a second
amendment fan?

People who want guns and believe it's their right,
who insist responsible gun owners don't
cause problems -- these people need to speak
up, and loudly, when there is a crime such as
Zimmerman's.

When innocent lives are lost
to stupidity vigilanteism carelessness and
all that.

I, too, wish they would truly act as responsibly as they claim.

33. I completely agree.

I'd love to see responsible gun owners speak up and tell the truth about what Zimmerman did. If indeed that's what Savage is doing, he's the first I've seen.

8. Too many Right Wingers want to make this a case of the victimization of WHITE PEOPLE....

Because they feel they are CONSTANTLY being accused of racism by people like Sharpton who "want to stir up the coloreds against us".

Accolades are not due Savage at this time.

When he announces his complete conversion to a liberal and votes democrat, I will consider forgiving his past sins.

10. Z murdered TM as soon as the Dispatcher told Z to not engage TM and Z did it any how

 

the Whole trial is a way for the gun nutters, GOP and Racists to grift money from their idiot followers and supporters.

Keep them whipped up in a frenzy so they will continue to send money to Z and other Corporate RW causes.

12. If Trayvon Martin had been white, would George Zimmerman have engaged him in the first place?

Would George Zimmerman have even noticed Trayvon Martin if Trayvon Martin was white? Would GZ have called the police or stalked TM if TM were white?

13. Savage yet again displays that he is a fucking idiot.

As if the case were as simple as he portrays it to be. "Zimmerman got out of car with gun. Martin had no gun. Zimmerman shoot Martin dead. Therefore, Zimmerman guilty." What a fucking stupid argument.

I guess a lot of folks enjoy that same fantasy that Zimmerman actually made come true.

Some twisted sick thinking.

25. I listened to Michael for a long time...

 

I have a certain amount of affection for him - maybe because of his storytelling and unique personality (don't know what else to call it) Havn't for a while tho ---all the reading from and promotion of those damnable books of his!
He has a certain amount of liberal/lefty stuff in him, and has admitted it on occasion. Doesn't emphasize it tho, probably because he knows which side his bread is buttered on.
Also, he is perfectly capable of turning completely around tomorrow or next week!

32. Wow! He is talking sense!

I wonder how his audience felt about these comments!?

This is the second time I find myself agreeing with him. The first was on the night of the Sandy Hook massacre, when he said "People are going to call me a liberal, but enough is enough" and he went off against people that keep stockpiles of weapons in their house, went off against assault weapons, and some of the loopholes that allow people with mentally unstable people in the house to obtain guns.
