Michael Savage still on Anti-Zim rant
770 AM radio | 7-11-13 | Me, Myself, and I

Posted on 07/11/2013 9:41:53 PM PDT by EinNYC

Tonight, I was listening in to the Michael Savage show while I drove home from buying new sneakers. First, he had on a nutritionist to speak out in favor of fish oils and debunk the new study that's come out against them. Then he launched into his now-familiar anti-Zim diatribes. He had on a few callers who said, "I agree with you", which pleased him greatly. He reiterated that Zimmerman caused the whole problem by (1) being a policeman wannabe, (2) having a loaded gun with the safety off [thanks to Freepers here, I learned that sort of gun has no safety, so M.S. is full of baloney about guns], and (3) precipitating the incident so that Zimmerman had to defend himself.

Anyone catch the M.S. show tonight? What do you think about his continued yada-yada about why George Zimmerman should be found guilty? I just can't believe he is adopting this weirdo position.

His obstinate entrenchment in this opinion, all the while verbally giving himself kudos for being brilliant (!) has me shaking my head and turning that radio dial.

He’s lost it. GZ defended himself and he did so with a gun. Anyone who believes that should be illegal is an idiot.

Haven’t listened to him since his time slot changed, but I know the obnoxious cycle you’re referring to. He and Beck both do that, so they enjoy being listened to only when nothing else is on, and then only if they’re of sound mind.

I think he an Bob Beckel should get together, two all emotion no reason robots as far as Zimmerman.

I’m convinced that Michael Weiner (d.b.a., Michael Savage) is mentally unbalanced. Sometimes he sounds like Pat Buchanan on steroids. Other times he sounds like Chris Matthews on steroids. Still other times he sounds deeply depressed, almost to the point of being suicidal. No matter what, everything is all about him.

Turned it off as soon as he started into his ranting spcculations based on zero evidence and, such as in the case of the continual policeman wannabe comments, made in ignorance of the evidence brought out at the trial. Zimmerman applied to the police force and was turned down because of his financial situation. Given the chance to try again he chose not to do so. Further, Zimmerman, when offered a position where he could wear a uniform and ride in patrol cars as an auxilary he turned that down. Apparently he did not want to be a policeman so much that he was willing to persist or take a position that could enable him to work into the force when it was offered to him.

Michael Savage’s dealing with this case has been an illustration of utter ignorance accompanied by self delusional patting himself on his back for his supposed briliance. His habitual diatribes against lawyers seem to have blinded him toward being able to correclty analyse the legal process at work or learn enough about it to make accurate observations.

He’s an enigma. I think he takes these positions just to disagree with Limbaugh, Levin and Hannity whom he appears to despise.

Savage’s problem is that somebody had a gun, that’s what he takes issue with.

He still babbles about “a round in the chamber” and “taking the safety off”. Clueless.

Problem with Savage is you never know who shows up. Listening to him is like walking on a field with land mines.

Savage is just distraught that Melanie Morgan quit his flagship station KSFO this week.

He's not thinking straight...

Yes, I have noticed that he and his various issues (stomach problems, missing old cars he's sold, this aches and that hurts him, lousy restaurant meals -- what, his wife doesn't know how to cook?, all lawyers are bad, everything out of his father's mouth was great, his mother knew everything, and his absolutely ignorant wading into Biblical issues, making statements on Jewish religious issues from a standpoint of absolute ignorance take center stage and politics, which he frequently says he doesn't want to talk about, are shoved aside. Since he moved to the new radio stations, I think he's shown a pronounced toning down of his fiery rhetoric. He is so tame nowadays, he's actually polite to some of his callers.

Lacking the years of intense study that Orthodox rabbis undergo, Mr. S. only has available to him the English literal translation of the Old Testament and therefore is not privy to the extreme multitude of interpretations which must be kept in consideration before issuing statements one way or another about them. I appreciate that he seems to take inspiration from the Old Testament, but you don't really get the REAL message from it unless you have devoted years of study to both the Old Testament AND the zillions of ancillary texts needed to make the proper interpretations of each passage.

I also don't appreciate his reading from the Old Testament one minute and appearing to listen to G-d's words and the next minute, expounding on his latest consumption of a non-kosher meal. That drives me nuts!

...and the beauty of Florida law is that none of that matters one whit; once Treyvon started trying to kill Zimmerman, that’s when he shot the 180 guy on top of him. And I’m sure if you go examine Treyvon’s youtube history, you’ll see plenty of videos of black people jumping white guys and beating the heck out of them.

But hey, why let some inconvenient facts get in the way. Like Al Gore speaking at a theatre in a town which just experienced record lows, he’ll go on about something totally unrelated to reality. Was he profiled? Yes, he’s a black guy walking in a gated community, dressed like a gangster, and was treated exactly how he presented himself to the world.

He came back and stalked Zimmerman and jumped him. Who called 911? Zimmerman did. Who was still on the phone with 911? Zimmerman.

Yet we are to discount credible testimony backed up with science and instead revert to the emperor’s new clothes and say how wonderful they are, because some personality spews out something totally unrelated to law and the facts of the case.

Florida law is really simple: You bring deadly force to a battle, then it is open season on you by anyone carrying a gun. Don’t like it? Then don’t beat on people. It really is that simple.

Wasn’t Michael Savage recently banned from entering the UK because of his “extremist” views?

After this Hard Left Flip Out on guns and race, the UK will buy Savage a plane ticket and put him up at a luxury hotel!

Re: “Wannabe Policeman”

I thought Zimm’s defense team passed up a great opportunity.

Every time a cop testified, they should have asked, “At any point in your life were you a Wannabe Policeman?”

I think Michael Weiner is still doing some “research” on a certain herb. An indication of this would be bouts of the munchies.

giving himself kudos for being brilliant

The closest to brilliance he'll ever get is being given the time slot next to Mark Levin.

No matter what, everything is all about him.

Used to listen to him in CA a decade ago. Gave up because of exactly what you say. Constantly talking about himself, as if I was expected to be as interested in him as he was.

If he's gotten worse since, which it sounds like, I don't see how he stays on the air, much less nationally.

Florida law is really simple: You bring deadly force to a battle, then it is open season on you by anyone carrying a gun. Don’t like it? Then don’t beat on people. It really is that simple.

Actually, it's not quite that simple. There are multiple exceptions, as there should be.

As in, if you are in the process of committing a violent felony, such as robbery, and are confronted with deadly force in reply, you cannot use self-defense to justify your homicide.

IOW, if I break into your home, and you pull a gun or baseball bat to defend yourself, if I kill you I cannot claim self-defense.

I understand and in general agree with the rationale behind Stand Your Ground laws.

But they have serious problems, as in the fact that in many cases it is difficult or impossible to define which party to a confrontation was the aggressor. It should not be automatically assumed that the dead guy was the perp and not the victim.

That just gives someone an incentive to finish off his opponent.

He reiterated that Zimmerman caused the whole problem by (1) being a policeman wannabe,


I can see his point, in my part of the country there are so many who are not worth a crap for anything else that are in the sheriff,s posy or volunteer fire fighters, etc, and the only time you see them are in parades or calling numbers in bingo games.

Not saying that i agree with him where Zimmerman is concerned but i think he is making a good point.

He also said that Zimmerman was over charged by the prosecutor and would be found innocent. Zimmerman will then be re-charged and brought back to trial for manslaughter.

Really??
