Michael Savage sure pissed off Ellen Andersen when he used to his radio show to compare lesbians to Nazi henchmen. Anderson – whose father spent time in a concentration camp – uses this impassioned, yet guilt-ridden post to protest Savage’s deplorable comparison.
I recognize that Savage is being hateful to score ratings points and that the more I react to him the more he’s “won.” But at the same time, Savageâ€™s reflexive invocation of Nazis and the Holocaust is dangerous.
Savageâ€™s diatribe about Nazis and the Holocaust is all about: itâ€™s verbal porn that dehumanizes its subjectsâ€”both the â€œlesbiansâ€ and the â€œoven stuffersâ€â€”for the voyeuristic pleasure of his audience.
The scariest part: about 7 million Americans voluntarily watch Savage’s show.
