    •  Question: What is Michael Savage's goal? (4+ / 0-)

      Answer: more listeners, more ratings, more money. Hate radio has found the perfect formula for this. By addressing fanatical brownshirts as their "base," they activate a market of listeners who aren't at all interested in their sick ideology except to refute it. That would be us, as in liberals and progressives.

      I understand the school of thought that says we must rebut every hate media challenge before it becomes something bigger, like federal policy.

      But given the fact that the hatemongers began buying up all the corporate media in the 1980's — and succeeded — that "rebut every challenge" strategy is a recipe for endless, pointless debate.

      What's the purpose of endless, pointless debate? To keep honest people otherwise occupied while the hate radio owners ransack the treasury, shred our Constitution and turn us all into slaves.

      I think the best response to Michael Savage is to laugh, which I do whenever I'm in the car (because in my town all the media is owned by the hate corporations and Michael Savage is on the air all the time).

      I'm not disagreeing with your call to action here, I'm just questioning it. I'd be more inclined to strangle Michael Savage than to argue with him. For that reason, I don't plan to invite him to my house, or visit his.

        ...most certainly repeated in Mosques and office builings in the Muslim world--Radio hosts are intimately connected to the administration testing concepts and riling up anger to channel for policy ends.  Savage is a best selling author and has a bully pulpit.  He ought to be destroyed for advocating a genocide.  He should be hiding in a cave.

      He was testing a meme.  seeing how the idea of a massacre would sit with the public.     I've overheard people seriously suggesting that Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan be nuked.   Savage ain't joking around.  He's marketing an Idea.
