Today in National Review, and the immigrant debate

I would imagine, when you’re hired on as a National Review racist, that you’re expected to do better than this. The desk comes with expectations. There are co-workers to consider, and an East Coast Klavern legacy to dignify. And if your very best efforts only result in hucking a hanging meatball our way no one is going to feel satisfied:


Near-Suicidal Immigration Policies
By Victor Davis Hanson | National Review

Deportation has become a near-taboo word. Yet the Boston bombings inevitably rekindle old questions about the way the U.S. admits, and at times deports, foreign nationals.

Despite the Obama administration’s politically driven and cyclical claims of deporting either a lot more or a lot fewer non-citizens, no one knows how many are really being sent home — for a variety of reasons.

That’s the photo above the column. No, it isn’t really that size, it’s much bigger. Hanson also asked the graphics department to render Tsarneav’s nose so that it nudged old dowagers in the asscrack as they doddered by.

Say Victor? This is what you’re going with? No one knows how many Boogaloos get deported from the United States? Eek! I myself bothered to look into that horror. Turns out the government keeps tabs on such things.

Although President Obama supports setting a path to citizenship for many illegal immigrants, his administration deported a record 1.5 million of them in his first term.

In addition, the released by the government in recent days show that an unprecedented 409,849 people were deported for the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.

Zoot obscures! Numbers and everything.

All-time highs. After you began so promisingly with the Menacing Terrorist.

And how does one define deportation? If someone from Latin America is detained by authorities an hour after illegally crossing the border and sent back, does he count as “apprehended” or “deported”?

Just what does “deport” mean? At what point does it apply? This is the sophistication a game of Jenga would rise to if it were played with shims.

If a terrorist climbs over a border fence and lands in Arizona, I’d say he’s in America. If you’d like to send him home, the word is appropriate: He’ll be “deported.” K? This, btw, typically occurs only after he’s been “apprehended.” But feel free to fly him back to Jalisco employing a helicopter and a grappling hook if that’s your thing.

President Obama’s own aunt, Zeituni Onyango, not only broke immigration law by overstaying her tourist visa but also compounded that violation by illegally receiving state assistance as a resident of public housing. Only after Obama was elected president was his aunt finally granted political asylum on the grounds that she would be unsafe in her native Kenya.

Right about here I assume Victor spits on the ground. Fffew. So she’s likely to get kidnapped and ransomed, for nothing, and then killed as a result of some far-flung family association. Is that a reason to rescue her? She tried to . . stay in America. And she lived in . . public housing. What else do you need to know?

More from our colorblind white society

I try not to bitch about an idiot’s post more than once. But this Dennis Prager racial kumbaya in the National Review is such a howler:

Still the Least Racist Country in the World
by Dennis Prager | National Review

In light of the tragic killing of black teenager Trayvon Martin — and the manufactured hysteria surrounding it — one thing needs to be stated as clearly and as often as possible: The United States is the least racist and least xenophobic country in the world . .

As I said before, we are aware of all wingnut traditions. Trayvon is dead, and Derbyshire’s an unemployed National Review Klanspundit. And now the Review’s Robert Weissberg, American Renaissance racialist emeritus, has been shitcanned as well. Are we to pretend Prager wasn’t trotted out to cover butts?

It’s too bad Dennis the Handholder couldn’t have held his tongue. After the community harmonizing, he begins lashing the liberals and African Americans. One bunch are politically greedy, and the other are, well, stupid and defective:

The left-wing drumbeat about America as racist is a combination of politics and black memory.

The political aspect is this: The Democrats and the Left both recognize that if blacks cease viewing themselves as victims of racism, the Democratic party can no longer offer itself as black America’s savior.

Hey, Black People: who’s your savior? I’m going to gamble here that they would answer “no one.” Also, “fuck off.” If black folks have a problem, as usual, they take it on themselves. Mind you, yes, we all want friends, and we could all use a little understanding as we go about our lives. But the idea that black america are Penelope tied to the railroad tracks and white people are, what, Dudley Doo-Right? Dennis has barely begun to hurl the insults:

And if only one out of three black Americans ceases to regard to [sic] himself as a victim of racism, and votes accordingly, it will be very difficult for Democrats to win any national election.

Once A Black no longer wrongly, stupidly considers “himself . . a victim of racism,” he votes Republican. This is edifying. Unlike everybody else, blacks just don’t have ‘politics.’ They don’t know or care for issues, like the economy, or taxes, or healthcare. They’re just sort of . . there. And Republicanism is their default functional state, like breathing. Breathing with your mouth.

The other issue is black memory. Apparently, most blacks either cannot or refuse to believe that the vast majority of whites are no longer racists.

. . danger! Dennis Prager . .

Most Americans were hopeful that the election of a black president — thereby making America the first white society in history to choose a black leader — would finally put to rest the myth of a racist America. More than three years later it seems not to have accomplished a thing . .

And the nob gets twisted off. Like most Conservatives, Dennis thinks black people are wrong. Here he writes it’s because they cling to memories. Hey, somebody put the electrodes to this neuro-malady. Maybe that’s what these guys were trying to do, scare the memory-wits out of people?

But pushing Zimmerman and Derbyshire and Weissberg far aside, friends — why not! — one can see, if one squints, very VERY hard, little racism in America. One problem down, but scientists are stumped by this:

. . aliens hacking into Michigan road signs. Geez, that was three days ago, bitter elephants. If you just could loosen your grip on a few historical blunders, Dennis’ utopia awaits our melting pot. Look how close we are to it. We’re “the first white society in history to choose a black leader.”

Right. Any of you spit the coffee reading that? Dennis would write something so gawdawful Wonder Bread. He, like most National Review poltergeists, really does live in a “white society.” But surely he didn’t vote for Barack, so his argument’s pretty much a drug deal.

The gob-slapping comedy here comes when Dennis volunteers the rest of America for “white society.” Myself, I don’t live anywhere near one, I live in Los Angeles. Like San Diego, New Orleans, Miami, Detroit, or Atlanta, it’s full of people of all kinds. Like the 50 states where the first Americans, the Indians, still live. You get my point. Mr. Racehugs couldn’t even account for the colored asses he’s been kissing.

Dennis Prager swears that Americans love Urkel and Balki

I came across this sorry effort by Dennis Prager to shoehorn brotherhood sunshine up the asses of National Review readers. Like we don’t know what he’s doing. Roy Edroso will tell you, here, how rightbloggers were totally! right on! when NR’s John Derbyshire posted his kamikaze ‘black people’ screed. Now that Derb’s been canned, the adults at Review are sober, glum, taking of stock, re-orienting their horizons, and doing whatever it is geniuses do after one of them dons a monogrammed Klan robe at an Easter party.

Dennis has decided to bring some ‘hey buddies!’ to the gloomfest. He asks: Who’s the nicest, friendliest, race-lovin’est country in the history of all planets? Can you possibly guess? Silly . . it’s America!


In light of the tragic killing of black teenager Trayvon Martin — and the manufactured hysteria surrounding it — one thing needs to be stated as clearly and as often as possible: The United States is the least racist and least xenophobic country in the world. Foreigners of every race, ethnicity, and religion know this.

You see where Dennis is heading. This social ruckus isn’t about George Zimmerman hawking and then reflexively killing a black kid. Derb is no life-long racist who finally flashed us the Brit-cracker full monty. These clashes are merely media spats. And they disappear when you step back to view the proper landscape of America. You can’t spot such ‘racialist’ motes in the panorama that is the kindest, most trusting country that’s ever been.

Don’t believe me? Just listen to all the first-hand accounts of “Foreigners of every race, ethnicity, and religion” that Dennis interviews for the post. Do a little re-orienting of your own, libtards, in the faces of the frequently and heartily embraced huddled masses:

Black Africans know this. That is why so many seek to live in the United States. Decades ago, the number of black Africans who had immigrated . .

Rrright. Now watch:

Members of other races and nationalities know this. Even Muslim and Arab writers have noted that nowhere in the Arab or larger Muslim world does an Arab or any other Muslim have the individual rights . .

Just, hmm. Here they come:

And when any of these people come here, they are accepted as Americans the moment they identify as such. If someone — from anywhere, speaking any language . .

And one, now, from somewhere:

A third-generation Turkish-German, whose German is indistinguishable from the German spoken by an indigenous German, will still be regarded by most Germans as a Turk. The same holds true elsewhere in Europe . .

FROM SOMEWHERE . .

On the other hand, a first-generation Turkish American, who speaks English with a heavy Turkish accent, but who identifies as American, will be regarded . .

Dennis, a human? Please?

Xenophobic? It is probably fair to say that most Americans are xenophiles. Last week, in Tampa, I met a 40-year-old man who works at a cigar lounge and bar.

Whew! Finally, someone to speak to the snuggly immigrant experience. Do tell.

. . I commented on all the good-looking women who entered his establishment, and he told me that despite his low salary, that is precisely the reason he works there. They flock to him, he said.

“Why?” I asked.

“Because of my accent.” He was from Russia.

A Euro in a cigar lounge. Suck it, bitches. So ends Dennis’ evidence for: America deh greatest furriner and black-lovin’ nation ever Jesus made.

Here comes the cold, hard truth: the Mexican border is by far the most secure border we’ve got


Rep. Lamar Smith Hints At Impeaching Obama Over Immigration: He’s ‘Close’ To Violating His Oath Of Office . .

. . On Wednesday, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) was on Lou Dobbs’ radio show and went a step further. He agreed with Dobbs’ statement that President Obama is “awfully close” to violating his “oath to protect the Constitution of the United States” by not completely securing the border [audio]:

DOBBS: The fact that we’ve witnessed both the Bush administration and now the Obama administration…refuse LamarSmithto secure the borders, refuse to enforce immigration law — at what point does this rise to the level of a breach of oath to protect the Constitution of the United States?

SMITH: I think we’re on the verge of being there right now. … Whatever law they’re not enforcing, I think it comes awfully close to a violation of their oath of office.



George Washington became our first President in April of 1789. And just how long did it take for him to secure the borders? You remember hearing about that in class, right, in junior high school — our first President immediately locking down the border we had with Canada? (. . the only foreign border that survived to our present day?)

1789 us map

No? Well me neither. I’m scanning the History books but drawing a blank. He never secured the borders. In fact, no President has ever secured the borders in any way that would prove satisfactory to Conservatives — you know, those folks who demand a simply, routinely, patently Mexican-proof ‘secure border’ to repel The Brown People, of the type seen separating North and South Korea, or the Israelis and Palestinians.

Here’s a typical sign at the Canadian border:

US-Canada border enforcement

. . but when did we impeach President Bush for his failure to protect our Northern border and our precious Constitution in this regard? After 9/11, no less?

More crossings feared along Canada border
Posted on Monday, November 12, 2007

BLAINE, Wash. — . . At most points, the only thing separating 0 (Zero) Avenue in Canada from the houses, fields, woods and narrow roads of the United States is a shallow, 3-foot ditch or a metal CanadaBorderCrossing3highway guardrail. Security cameras on tall poles swivel to track suspicious vehicles. Border Patrol cars barrel around corners to confront uncertain threats . .

But if the area immediately surrounding the inn and the border crossing at Blaine is one of the more secure along the U.S.-Canadian border, the other 4,000 or so miles are a security nightmare.

Given Canada’s open immigration policies, terrorist organizations have established cells there seeking “safe havens, operational bases and attempting to gain access to the USA,” according to a 1998 report from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. The report said that more than 50 terrorist groups might be present, including Hezbollah, Hamas and other radical Islamic groups from Iran and Algeria.

A 2006 report from the Nixon Center, a Washington, D.C., policy institute, quoted a senior FBI official as saying that Canada is the most worrisome terrorist point of entry and that al Qaida training manuals advise terrorists to enter the United States from Canada. The report concluded that “despite widespread alarms raised over terrorist infiltration from Mexico, we found no terrorist presence in Mexico and a number of Canadian-based terrorists who have entered the United States.”


After Alaska became a state in 1959, we then had an Eastern border, too:

Alaskan border

When was that secured? Ever? Why has every President failed to uphold the Oath of Office? Why has no one impeached every single one of them? Why won’t Republicans do the right thing when Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush piss on the Constitution this way? Why don’t they love the United States of America the way I do?

The many scary, stupid faces of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer

Ariz. gov: Most illegal immigrants smuggling drugs
By PAUL DAVENPORT
Associated Press Writer – Fri Jun 25, 7:06 pm ET

. . “I believe today, under the circumstances that we’re facing, that the majority of the illegal trespassers that are coming into the state of Arizona are under the direction and control of organized drug cartels and they are bringing drugs in,” Brewer said.

“There’s strong information to us that they come as illegal people wanting to come to work. Then they are accosted and they become subjects of the drug cartel,” she said.

The majority of illegal immigrants are drug smugglers? Jeezus, what a moron.

Take two: HUMAN EVENTS Editor Jason Mattera is still smarter than you

Biden’s Botox Infects Obama
by Jason Mattera
05/11/2010

jason matteraNow friends, it’s bad enough that the vice president of the United States has a forehead that you can break a brick over, but now Biden’s Botox is contaminating Obama’s drinking water.

How else do you explain our Dear Leader’s insistence that Elena Kagan holds enough experience to be our next Supreme Court justice?

Yes, yes, the brother is a liar, after all.

OOOOH YEAH, Bro-Ham Jason. Lay it on us. Preach, cracker-pot.

But still, the arguments the Obama Administration has ginned up in support of Kagan are mind-bogglingly pathetic.

So just for you, I’ve waded through the stories and found the Top 3 dumbest defenses of Elena Kagan.

OKAY, wingnut — let’s see it.

1. Courtesy of Politico, “[Kagan] is ambitious, restless, intellectually acute and even shares the president’s love of a good, grinding pick-up basketball game.”

Say what? She enjoys a “grinding pick-up basketball game”? Well now, that settles it then. Bust out the basketball trunks, throw on a jersey, and move yourself straight to the front of the line for a lifetime position on the most powerful court in the land!

Mattera seizes upon Politico’s dropping a detail like ‘playing basketball’ as a defense of the nominee. Mentioning she might be a centrist would be akin to building a phalanx of rickety atomic bombs around her. Saying Kagan is a nice person would be pretty much shooting Jason in the face with a bazooka. Perhaps reading a humanizing bit about the woman is too much to take for the screaming ‘You’re all Joseph Mengele!’ types? Politico, of course, is the liberal media.

What could go wrong? As an aside, can you even imagine Kagan “grinding” on the court? Ugh, I just think I lost my appetite.

Where would you peg the maturity of Mattera’s intellect? Pick a grade. No, pick a school, then a grade. It’s pre-college. I’m going with middle high school, about junior year. Alternatively, Antonin Scalia’s “grinding” would be incisive, brilliant and Federalist beyond reproach. Actually, that little jibe back at The Editor is surely lost on him: why would he try that particular smack with a male nominee? We are so stupid.

2. From the mouth of Barack, a Kagan court would be “more reflective of us as a people than ever before.” And if by “reflective,” the president means that most Americans go from Princeton to Oxford to Harvard to the University of Chicago…

. . okay, fine. She didn’t go to Roger Williams University. The Seventh Best Baccalaureate College in the U.S. (sub-region: ‘North’). Behind Cooper Union, the United States Coast Guard Academy, the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Elizabethtown College, Messiah College and Elmira College. How tragic for the country.

3. “Elena is the granddaughter of immigrants,” Obama touted of his pick, which is to say that Kagan’s parents’ parents immigrated to this country. And that makes her special how?

Awwww, Fail. That makes her like us, which is what the President pointed out. ‘We’ are almost all descended from immigrants (excusing our Indian friends, as they would have to go back a few thousand years), and more than half of ‘us’ are women. I don’t think the President’s speech was so hard to understand, really.

Now that we have those gems out of the way, enjoy the rest of your afternoon thinking about Elena Kagan in her booty basketball shorts, “grinding” on the court

Naw, let’s think about Sarah Palin instead. There’s a ‘nominee’ the 17-year-old Mattera could fantasize about, which is the whole point of politics.

Republicans, already unpopular (about 21% of Americans), consider making candidates jump through a ‘purity’ hoop

At a time when Americans self-identify as ‘Republicans’ less than at any time in the last 8 years, they want to squeeze candidates through ‘purity’ bottlenecks? This is a good idea? Will this help attract new, and especially rare non-white, folks to their ‘pure’ Republican candidates? Doesn’t sound like it.

G.O.P. Considers ‘Purity’ Resolution for Candidates
By ADAM NAGOURNEY

The battle among Republicans over what the party should stand for — and how much it should accommodate dissenting views on important issues — is probably going to move from the states to the Republican National Committee when it holds its winter meeting this January in Honolulu.

Republican leaders are circulating a resolution listing 10 positions Republican candidates should support to demonstrate that they “espouse conservative principles and public policies” that are in opposition to “Obama’s socialist agenda.” According to the resolution, any Republican candidate who broke with the party on three or more of these issues– in votes cast, public statements made or answering a questionnaire – would be penalized by being denied party funds or the party endorsement.

What do the proposed ‘purity’ vows look like? Here:

(1) We support smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama’s “stimulus” bill;

(2) We support market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run health care;

(3) We support market-based energy reforms by opposing cap and trade legislation;

(4) We support workers’ right to secret ballot by opposing card check;

(5) We support legal immigration and assimilation into American society by opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants;

(6) We support victory in Iraq and Afghanistan by supporting military-recommended troop surges;

(7) We support containment of Iran and North Korea, particularly effective action to eliminate their nuclear weapons threat;

(8) We support retention of the Defense of Marriage Act;

(9) We support protecting the lives of vulnerable persons by opposing health care rationing and denial of health care and government funding of abortion; and

(10) We support the right to keep and bear arms by opposing government restrictions on gun ownership.


Not only is this a bad idea for a party that’s in danger of becoming marginalized, the list itself is a complete joke, the sort of thing that insiders write for insiders to read and then cheer about. Poorly written, poorly thought out and full of flimsy talking points, it’s easily made fun of…

1.) You’d oppose Obama’s well-known stimulus bill tax cuts? 237 fricking billion dollars? Are you guys lying, or just stupid?

2.) Healthcare reform radically increases marketplace competition, that’s one of its obvious mechanisms for driving down costs. That’s why it lowers the deficit–see your own #1.

4.) EFCA doesn’t get rid of secret balloting or change the mechanism by which secret balloting certifies a union. Period. I thought everybody knew that.

5.) A total non-sequitur. Rounding up illegal immigrants has nothing to do with supporting legal immigration. If all these poor folks could legally immigrate, they would.

6.) There are ‘military-recommended troop surges’ for Iraq? That’s what’ll get America to reverse course, hang on there for years and years and then ‘win’? Hello?

9.) Most ridiculous of all–do you know how many Americans die because they have no access to healthcare? It’s far past rationing, it’s full-blown denial, followed by death.


If I can trump this pathetic thing in a matter of a couple minutes, I doubt that it’ll score with centrists and outsiders who are notoriously slow to buy political pablum. And that’s whom the Republicans desperately need.


ADD: Keith Olbermann notes that this ‘purity test’ would have, in the past, excluded a bunch of half-asses like…Ronald Reagan:

CNN’s anti-immigrant blowhard Lou Dobbs is such a big deal that people are trying to shoot his wife and his vinyl siding

“…they’ve threatened my wife, they’ve now fired a shot at my house and, uh, while my wife was standing next to the car…uh, it’s become something else…and if anybody thinks that we’re not engaged in a battle for the soul of this country, right now, you’re sorely mistaken…”

“…my wife now has been, and I, have been shot at, uh, our driver, uh, my house has been shot and hit, uh, an investigation continues, I’ve had bodyguards now, and, you know what, I’m not in a mood to put up with little fools like Geraldo Rivera, uh, it’s time that we really awakened to what is happening in this country, it is ugly…”



NJ Law Enforcement Appear to Contradict
Dobbs’ Version
of Gunfire Incident

Interviews with the New Jersey State Police yielded a rather different assessment of the events described by Dobbs. In a phone interview conducted yesterday, Sgt. Stephen Jones, a NJ State Police spokesperson, chuckled out loud after he heard about Dobbs’ account of the gunfire incident. Jones commented that he “wouldn’t classify it [the gunfire incident] as very unusual.” He also confirmed that there are hunters in the area, and stated that, “at this time of year hunter [shooting] complaints go up.”…

Another New Jersey State Police spokesperson, Sgt. Julian Castellanos, noted that “it’s a wide open area and there are hunters in the area.” Castellanos explained that the bullet had hit the house in vicinity of the attic; it “hit the vinyl siding and fell to the ground” without penetrating the vinyl, he said…

When asked to comment for this story, Dobbs disputed the New Jersey State Police’s account, saying in an email that “there was no hunting season underway three weeks ago.” However, an official at the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife Bureau of Law Enforcement confirmed in a phone interview that state hunting seasons were underway at the time of the gunfire incident three weeks ago.

Asked what he thought of Dobbs’ version of the gunfire incident, Sgt. Jones stated, “I’m really going to leave Lou Dobbs’ assessment to himself.”

Conservatives’ inability to deal with gruesome Sparkman murder continues: ‘He was probably killed by illegal immigrants’

How much longer will it be before ACORN will have killed Bill? Days? Hours?

Dead Census worker: Victim of open borders?
Roger Hedgecock
Posted: September 28, 2009

Two weeks ago, Census taker Bill Sparkman died choking, hands and feet bound, hanging naked from a tree in a remote site in Daniel Boone National Forest in Clay County, Ky. Someone had scrawled “fed” on his chest with a felt-tipped pen.

Last week, Sparkman’s death became fodder for more attacks on “right-wing violence.” Bloggers wanted to “send the body to Glenn Beck,” and a Time magazine piece speculated that Sparkman was a victim of the culture of another McCain-voting Southern state

Now it looks more like Sparkman was yet another victim of illegal drug operations on national forest land, and possibly also a victim of our still open border with Mexico.

Taking the Census in our national forests is dangerous business. Law enforcement sources say meth labs and marijuana plantations are “prevalent” in the area of Sparkman’s death. Did he stumble across a drug operation in the Daniel Boone National Forest? No one is saying for sure, but the locals believe it…

Our open border with Mexico has been changing American society in a number of unpleasant ways. These fires, these destroyed national forest lands, and maybe even Bill Sparkman’s death, may just be the latest way.


So now it’s wild-eyed drug pushers. But not the white American ones, the brown Mexican ones. This latest story I don’t find very compelling given that illegal immigrants, even, or especially, the ones running drug operations, are very wary of police and the government. When law enforcement drops by, they run.

And when it’s some harmless guy from the Census Bureau, they don’t abduct, kill and hang him. And then write ‘fed’ on the body. That’s a particularly lurid, public message that doesn’t really serve a foreign drug operation. Perhaps Mexican drug-dealer/manufacturers in Mexico, maybe, but not here.

This murder really looks like an act of rage, and Conservatives just refuse to admit they have had a hand in pouring gasoline on already-present anti-government feelings in that part of Kentucky. I don’t imagine the moonshining days are all that far back. Instead, they’re going to keep coming up with ever-more preposterous scenarios, some that obscenely blame the blameless Sparkman for his own murder because, frankly, these right-wingers are cowards.

If it does turn out to be some paranoid ‘Federal Government Rapes and Kills!’ lunatic, watch them pile on that the killer was actually a hard core liberal. Yes, they are that dumb and shameless.

Patriotic Oklahoma educates its kids: only 3% know enough about the U.S. to pass the citizenship test


USA! USA! USA!”


75 Percent of Oklahoma High School Students Can’t Name the First President of the U.S.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Only one in four Oklahoma public high school students can name the first President of the United States, according to a survey released today.

The survey was commissioned by the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs in observance of Constitution Day on Thursday.

Brandon Dutcher is with the conservative think tank and said the group wanted to find out how much civic knowledge Oklahoma high school students know…

“They’re questions taken from the actual exam that you have to take to become a U.S. citizen,” Dutcher said.

A thousand students were given 10 questions drawn from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services item bank. Candidates for U.S. citizenship must answer six questions correctly in order to become citizens.

About 92 percent of the people who take the citizenship test pass on their first try, according to immigration service data. However, Oklahoma students did not fare as well. Only about 3 percent of the students surveyed would have passed the citizenship test.

Dutcher said this is not just a problem in Oklahoma. He said Arizona had similar results, which left him concerned for the entire country.

Twitching red meat for Michael Savage despisers: Townhall’s Matt Towery tries to defend him. FAIL.

Poor Michael Savage. Can’t summer in Dover any more, which he would hate and wouldn’t ever do absent a fat check or a penitentiary sentence. Matt Towery goes out of his way to try to pretend Savage is only a sharp-tongued radio provocateur, but he’s obviously a hate-monger.

Britain’s Ban on an American Talk Show Host is An Outrage
by Matt Towery

It’s been decades since I was a student at England’s Cambridge University. Since I graduated in 1984, I have returned only a few times to this wonderful country, which I love so dearly and whose people so warmly embraced me.

So I admit to shock over British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith’s publication of 16 names of persons now banned from the United Kingdom for allegedly fostering extremism or hatred…

So militants who advocate or glorify terrorism are now somehow the equivalent of one of the most listened-to talk radio hosts [Savage] in America?…

Most likely media disdains him partly because he is both well educated — he holds Master’s degrees and a Ph.D. from Berkley [sic]– and because his on-air personality is often gruff and cantankerous. Savage is prone to take on controversial social and political issues, often pushing things to the edge of opinion.

I went to Berkeley. And I remember running into guys like him there. The place was full of morons, believe me. Savage on autism: “[a] fraud, a racket. … I’ll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out. That’s what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they’re silent? They don’t have a father around to tell them, ‘Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.’ “

There is no controversy about the existence of autism. This is an incendiary, idiotic rant. It’s also guaranteed to hurt the already-hurting parents of these poor kids.

While some may find Savage’s opinions offensive — for example, he often acidly comments on what he refers to as his hometown of San Francisco’s obsession with gay and lesbian issues — he to my knowledge has never urged listeners to incite riots, harm other humans, commit terrorism or advocate other acts of hatred. Indeed, more often than not he bemoans the ineffectiveness of both Republicans and Democrats. He often drifts from political and social issues altogether to discuss everything from the food he ate the night before to some funny story from his childhood.

That was very slippery of you, saying he hasn’t urged his listeners to do those awful things. See, he’s not so bad, he’s not really fomenting violence, right? Savage merely urges reality that it should happen. That’s so much better, Matt.

Back in 2004, Abu Ghraib prison was one of his anti-Arab/Muslim hate-jump points. Savage:

–repeatedly called it “Grab-An-Arab.” Classic ethnic hate-mongering.

–said “Nick Berg, an American, not military, over there building transmission towers, was captured by the Untermenschen the sub-humans, who wrap themselves in a religion. He is seen saying his mother’s name, his father’s name, sister’s name, his brother’s name and then the smiling Arabs cut a living human beings head off as he screams.” The ‘Untermenschen’, or ‘smiling Arabs’? More of the same.

–said of Muslim women’s attire: “Don’t give me this crap that they’re doing it out of a sacred ritual or rite. It’s not required by the Quran that a woman walk around in a seventh-century drape. She’s doing it to spit in your face. She’s saying, ‘You White moron, you, I’m going to kill you if I can.’ That’s how I see it! What do you want me to do, mince words with you?”

–…and–for kickers–said of our home-grown foreigners: “Twenty-nine percent of all inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens. No, Mr. Bush, they do not all come here to work, they do not all come here to work. They come here to work the system, sell drugs, rape, and kill on contract. Don’t lie to us.” [...and I got those last two here, Matt: http://www.stormfront.org/forum/showthread.php?t=503156]


But on what you think is your salient question–how could he possibly get thrown in with the types who “advocate or glorify terrorism”? Well, you screwed up big time, Matt. If Savage isn’t out to glorify terrorism, then what the hell is this?

–said of the Abu Ghraib prisoners: “And I think there should be no mercy shown to these sub-humans. I believe that a thousand of them should be killed tomorrow. I think a thousand of them held in the Iraqi prison should be given 24 hour — a trial and executed.”

–said “Instead of putting joysticks, I would have liked to have seen dynamite put in their orifices and they should be dropped from airplanes. How’s that? You like that one? Go call somebody that you want to report me to, see if I care. They should put dynamite in their behinds and drop them from 35,000 feet, the whole pack of scum out of that jail.”


Matt, there were about 7,000 detainees at Abu Ghraib at that time, and virtually all of them have been released back into the population. 1,000 of them alone were released in one week back in 2005. The homicidal mega-terrorists weren’t there, they were elsewhere: you’d have a difficult time finding even a single prisoner from there that was tried and executed, as Savage would have summarily done to the entire population. By dynamite sodomy and splatter-ment. But then, we both know he doesn’t care about such details of reality. Because the point of his rant was to take out his infinite rage on the people he supremely loathes, clearly wishing he could slaughter, or at least punish and permanently scar, them all.

More of the Savage ethos:
–’On his September 21, 1999 broadcast, while voicing his contempt for San Francisco’s homeless and the efforts to help them, Savage, a long time Bay Area radio personality, said that female students who come from a Marin County private school to feed and provide services to the homeless “can go in and get raped by them because they seem to like the excitement of it…”‘

–’On the March 18, 2003, broadcast of The Savage Nation Michael Savage called Elizabeth Smart, “Snow White.” Savage then went on to say that if he were writing a newspaper article about what had happened to Elizabeth Smart that the headline would be, “Snow White Gets Raped By Bum In White Robes.”‘


But then, what’s this? “She’s saying we killed tens of thousands of innocent people? Is that what’s she’s saying? What does this idiot know? Everyone knows she’s a communist. She’s a prostitute– she should be raped.”

That’s spicy, you’d say. The manner of provocateurs. It’s free speech, you might add. But that wasn’t Savage. Those were the comments of Warlords in the Afghan Parliament after a female MP, Malailai Joya, accused them of murder.

I’d bet, Matt, that the Britons would have a problem granting the pro-rape lobby access to their country. I’d even venture that a political warlord would get into the UK more easily than a useless radio fatmouth who called for the rapes of women who annoyed him. Savage adores violence and terrorism. He shouldn’t be tolerated by any country, Britain included.

It pains me to say this, but it appears that in this unfortunate instance, the true Savage Nation isn’t Dr. Savage, but the United Kingdom, for its equating of a talk-show host with killers and advocates of terrorism.

No, what’s painful is that you don’t have the courage to tell the truth. Michael Savage is a national troll.
