Ellen Andersen Can't Resist Venting

Savage’s Nazi Comments Draw Lesbian’s Ire

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, Savage’s reflexive invocation of Nazis and the Holocaust is dangerous.

Savage’s diatribe about Nazis and the Holocaust is all about: it’s verbal porn that dehumanizes its subjects—both the “lesbians” and the “oven stuffers”—for the voyeuristic pleasure of his audience.

The scariest part: about 7 million Americans voluntarily watch Savage’s show.

    Thanks for the link, Queerty!

    And Ellen’s way right here. Sometimes in the internet world we forget that we can’t just compare everything to Nazis.

    Savage used to be Michael Weiner, an “herbologist”…though (conveniently) he now opposes the medical use of marijuana, having discovered hateful radio rants are more lucrative than the dozen or so books he wrote for the granola crowd.

    Mikey also used to hang out with (and idolize) Allen Ginsberg, who he now says is “the devil.”

    Particularly intriguing is Savage’s heavy reliance on Nazi analogies. Disturbing, when juxtaposed with his occasional anti-Semitic remarks (and more puzzling when you recall that Weiner is himself Jewish).
