Michael Savage let loose with a rant today that should have his conservative admirers, as well as the entire military, calling him a “traitor”. Not only did the hateful, conservative Savage disparage the thousands of veterans who fought for the country that enables him to go on his spiteful diatribes, but he also insulted the entire nation, calling the U.S. a “weak, sick nation” that is “being laughed at” by other countries.
On his radio show, Savage was discussing the possible renaming of a tunnel in San Francisco after the late actor Robin Williams, who committed suicide after battling depression. Savage argued with a caller to his show, who happened to be a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), about the renaming of the bridge, which Savage is against because it would glorify suicide. After the call was over, Savage launched his abhorrent denunciation of those suffering from depression and PTSD.
Media Matters has the transcript:
SAVAGE: I am so sick and tired of everyone with their complaints about PTSD, depression. Everyone wants their hand held, and a check — a government check. What are you, the only generation that had PTSD? The only generation that’s depressed? I’m sick of it. I can’t take the celebration of weakness and depression.See, I was raised a little differently. I was raised to fight weakness. I was raised to fight pain. I was raised to fight depression. Not to give into it. Not to cave into it and cry like a little baby in bed. “Boo-hoo-hoo. Boo-hoo-hoo.” Everyone has depression in their life. Everyone has sickness and sadness and disease. And loss of relatives. And loss of career. Everyone has depression in their life. But if the whole nation is told, “boo-hoo-hoo, come and get a medication, come and get treatment, talk about mental illness.” You know what you wind up with? You wind up with Obama in the White House and liars in every phase of the government. That’s what you wind up with. It’s a weak, sick, nation. A weak, sick, broken nation. And you need men like me to save the country. You need men to stand up and say stop crying like a baby over everything. Stand up already. Stop telling me how sick you are and sad you are. Talk about the good things in your life.
When have you last heard that? Oh, everyone’s holding their hand. “Oh, welcome to Good Morning America, sir. You almost committed suicide, how interesting. Please tell us your story.” Maybe a young child who’s on the edge can commit suicide. What a country. No wonder we’re being laughed at around the world. No wonder ISIS can defeat our military. Take a look at that. Take a look at that, why people aren’t even getting married anymore to have children. They don’t even have the guts to raise a child. The men are so weak, and so narcissistic, all they want to do is have fun. Bunch of losers. Just go have a brewski and look at the 49ers, you idiot, you. They won’t even get married, won’t have a child, it takes too much of a man to do that. What a country. You’re not a man, you’re a dog. A dog raises babies better than most American men do.
It’s rather ironic that Savage refers to others as “narcissistic” given his “And you need men like me to save the country” remark, huh?
