There are many voices in the conservative movement and most are welcome and refreshing. From time to time, however, a self-proclaimed member of our movement becomes so habitually counterproductive that there is only one thing left to do: exconservacate them. As a public service, it is my pleasure to officially deal with Michael Savage once and for all.
Yeah, Mikey. That's it, you're out.
On his broadcast, Savage called autism "a fraud, a racket ... In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out. ... They don't have a father around to tell them, 'Don't act like a moron. ... Act like a man. Don't sit there crying and screaming, idiot.' "
As is often the case, Savage's point is not 100% retarded (more like 99%) but that is beside the point. His resistance to internal consistency, undeserved arrogance, rudeness and propensity to say incredibly inflammatory and stupid things makes him only a liability to everything we are trying to accomplish.
He claims that he's being unfairly attacked by the 'marxists' and that is true but just because our enemies hate someone doesn't mean we should defend them. That group-think resistance to calling an apple an apple is exactly what we deride in the left. When someone like Larry Craig broadens his stance, we don't defend him, we roundly criticize and ostracize him.
Savage deserves the same treatment. He is an embarrassing tool who's method of 'defending' conservatism is so hostile and confrontational that he can't possibly serve any purpose other than to turn moderates against us.
I say, good riddance.
