SAN FRANCISCO POLITICO DECLARES WAR ON CONSERVATIVE MICHAEL SAVAGE
Posted 1:00 AM Eastern
Americans would be hardpressed to find a more radical, left-wing city than San Francisco. There is no place as homosexual-friendly, Illegal alien friendly or antimilitary in the United States as Frisco.
Paradoxically, this leftist haven is home to some of America's top conservative talk show hosts including Barbara Simpson, Lee Rodgers, Melanie Morgan and the syndicated powerhouse Michael Savage. Conservative programming gets big ratings numbers in San Francisco, while liberal-left shows languish from lack of audience and sponsors.
Now Michael Savage is under attack by San Francisco City Supervisor Geraldo Sandoval for comments made by Savage on-the-air regarding illegal immigrants. Savage was responding to reports that Sandoval and other left-wing politicians are attempting to force taxpayers to pay for immigrants' green cards and citizenship.
When talk show host Michael Savage exposed their secret plan Supervisor Sandoval introduced a resolution condemning Savage for what they brand as his "defamatory language�against immigrants."
Sandoval's resolution is a response to Savage's July 5 Savage Nation broadcast, when a caller to the show mentioned a group of Latino students who had announced they were fasting in support of changes in immigration policy.
"I would say, let them fast until they starve to death," quipped Savage, "then that solves the problem."
Last Wednesday when a Black Muslim bakery in Oakland was raided by police after some of its people were implicated in the recent murder of a reporter who was investigating them, Sandoval claimed that "many media outlets are using this as an opportunity to slander the Muslim community and, unfortunately, even black African-Americans as a whole."
Talk host Jeff Katz worked at Savage's flagship station KNEW in San Francisco/Oakland, California, before going to WBT in Charlotte, NC. Katz was the PM drivetime host and, while popular with listeners, he was often attacked by thin-skinned left-wing politicians and activists.
"They became rabid whenever we discussed illegal aliens or Muslims on the air," said Katz.
According to political consultant Mike Baker, liberal politicians and activists despise free speech.
"They talk about free speech, but when push comes to shove they want to control what citizens say especially on the radio and on television," said Baker.
When Michael Savage was given his own show by the cable TV channel MSNBC, the show drew an impressive-sized audience for a Saturday news show. However, Savage's TV career was short-lived when he chose to take on the radical-left's gay agenda.
The incident started when a caller to Michael Savage's July 5, 2003 MSNBC show, Savage Nation, apparently tried to get some kind of prank on the show. Savage responded. Here's the transcript from the Nexis news media database:
SAVAGE: So you're one of those sodomists. Are you a sodomite?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, I am.
SAVAGE: Oh, you're one of the sodomites. 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. Get trichinosis. OK, do we have another nice caller here who's busy because he didn't have a nice night in the bathhouse who's angry at me today? Get me another one, put another sodomite on. No more calls out of -- let's go to the next scene. I don't care about these bums. They mean nothing to me. They're all sausages.
This exchange ended Michael Savage's TV show and even some so-called conservatives spoke against him in spite of the fact that he was obviously joking with the caller.
"Now the neo-Marxists in San Francisco are attempting to silence Savage on the radio. It's part of parcel of the overall attack on conservative talk radio shows that are informing Americans about the secret agenda of the Progressives," said Baker.
As reported recently in NewsWithViews, the liberal-left internationalists are hard at work attempting to silence conservatives, especially on the radio.
"If it weren't for conservative talk hosts, most of what's happening in our nation's capital would occur in secret. The mainstream news media are concentrating on Senator Hillary Clinton's cleavage or Barack Obama's smile, while these people plan a major takeover of the US government," warns conservative activist Mike Baker.
