"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[s] -- a trial and executed. I think they need to be shown that we are not going to roll over to them ... Instead of putting joysticks, I would have liked to have seen dynamite put in their orifices and they should be dropped from airplanes ... They should put dynamite in their behinds and drop them from 35,000 feet, the whole pack of scum out of that jail."
Remember, these are the same prisoners that the Red Cross estimates 70 to 90% of them were innocent and later released.
Right now, even people sitting on the fence would like George Bush to drop a nuclear weapon on an Arab country. They don't even care which one it would be. I can guarantee you -- I don't need to go to Mr. Schmuck [pollster John] Zogby and ask him his opinion ... The most -- I tell you right now -- the largest percentage of Americans would like to see a nuclear weapon dropped on a major Arab capital. They don't even care which one...
"I think these people need to be forcibly converted to Christianity ... It's the only thing that can probably turn them into human beings.
I'm going to give you one further example from my background as an anthropologist just so that you -- I'm trying to put context on this because you can go crazy if you don't have the context on this, because I'm going to lead up to something of what we must do to these primitives. Because these primitives can only be treated in one way, and I don't think smallpox and a blanket is good enough incidentally ... Smallpox in a blanket, which the U.S. Army gave to the Cherokee Indians on their long march to the West, was nothing compared to what I'd like to see done to these people."
What a wonderful human being.
It doesn't stop there. He recently appeared in a live performance called Savage Uncensored in San Francisco. There he said:
- He claimed that the abuse was nothing, and that he suffered worse under his father when he was 16.
- He exclaimed that Lynndie England (the smoking, smiling, pointing guard) should be the poster girl for America's war on terror. She was having fun over there, and shows how kicking "Muslim ***" can be fun.
- Claimed that we should kill Iraqi women, because if we don't our women will be next. He said they deserved it because our women were killed in 9/11 (obviously he drank the coolaid on the whole "Iraq was behind 9/11" insanity)
- Claimed that his greatest fantasy was to hear bombers flying overhead on their way to kill Iraqis, and that it was better than an orgasm.
Like I said with Limbaugh, it doesn't surprise me that someone thinks this way. There are crackpots and extremists on every side of the spectrum. However this guy also has 6 million listeners a week, he is a best selling author, and he has millions of people who hang on his every word for confirmation of their own beliefs. One crackpot extremist is not a problem, but when they simply represent a large portion of our country, that is what gets me worried. That is what makes me worried for the future of our country.
It sickens and saddens me. Savage in the past claimed he was the original compassionate conservative. Now I fully understand the horror that lurks behind that label.
