Michael Savage has been fired by MSNBC for making anti-gay remarks.

Gee, I’m so surprised.

    “Oh, you’re one of the sodomites,” Savage said. “You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How’s that? Why don’t you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do today, go eat a sausage and choke on it.”

I don’t know whether to snicker, cry, or brace myself for the upcoming wave of “it’s political correctness” whining that is sure to come from the right.

    I gotta admit that I find Savage’s radio program rather entertaining. His show on MSNBC, however, was painful to watch. I believe this incident was a direct result of one of three things:

    1 – He was desperate for ratings and was deliberately trying to say something outrageous to get some media attention. His error was to cross the line so far as to lose his gig.

    2 – He was sick of embarrassing himself every Saturday afternoon, and deliberately let loose with such a vile attack for the purpose of being canned.

    3 – He is just a loose cannon, a wildman, and such a statement was going to come out of his mouth sooner or later.

    I don’t know which is the correct answer. I do know, however, that his “explanation” of the events is totally bogus:

  • Brian Flemming

    Savage: “Let me repeat, this was an interchange between me personally and a mean spirited vicious setup caller which I thought was taking place off the air. It was not meant to reflect my views of the terrible tragedy and suffering associated with AIDS. I especially appeal to my many listeners in the gay community to accept my apologies for any inadvertent insults which may have occurred. ”

    Hmm…let’s go to the clip.

    Yep. He’s lying.

    savage getting fired is ridiculous. how many times has a liberal made some stupid comment and NOT gotten fired??

  • Natalie

    Well, I am glad he got the axe. At the same time, I see the point of those who said MSNBC should not have been the least bit surprised by Savage’s savagery. They knew what he was before they hired him in the first place.

    michael savage is a cunt

    Savage being fired once again proves the control that the liberal media has in this country. Liberal can and do say equally outrageous things on a regular basis without being called out on the carpet. This is another reason that air america will fail. It will drown in a sea of virtually saturated liberal media.

  • Mark Saleski

    if you think that outlets like cnn are as overtly liberal as air america then you’ve got a pretty danged twisted view of left vs. right.

    Savage has Gay friends, I have gay friends. He loathes the facist Homosexual lobby. They use gays unwittingly to attack the family and family values. The person he made the comments to was a Gay Facist BRownshirt

    Michael Savage would save our nation if only
    people would listen and take heed.

    The muslims are on the march, and the liberals
    are destroying our nation.

    Wake up America. Question, do you know how many
    muslim mosques there are in America?
    Take a look at

    Got any specific examples of “liberals” saying things like this and not getting fired?

    Michael Savage is the only one willing to tell the TRUTH.

    “Warning: The Michael Savage Show contains adult language, adult content, psychological nudity. Listener discretion is advised”.

  • foundone

    comment #8 is stupid first off !! second the person who really makes me angry is rush being able to play his racist song “Obama puff the magic negro ” and not being slammed. I think that savage stopped being a right supporter and paid the price. I miss his hate everybody attitude , even if i disagreed with his views sometimes

  • Hal Singer

    Michael Savage is way beyond the pale. I’ll bet he was a full on Communist in his youth. He has the fervor of a dry drunk

  • charlenemary

    I am not a fan of MS even though I agree with much of what he says regarding immigration, etc. His remark to the idiot who called was if nothing else unprofessional and he is an educated man. On the other hand, God forbid the left should ever make any type of remark criticizing Christians, straight marriage or a number of issues that affect many Americans.
