Michael Savage's VICIOUS Attack On Glenn Beck Over 'Going Blind' Revelation
The Daily Beck ^ | July 20, 2010 | Michael Savage

Posted on 07/20/2010 11:11:35 AM PDT by amabokcarab

Sorry, but I just have to say this.

WTF is wrong with this guy? I've been tolerating this kind of BS from this guy Savage because I agree with him on a lot of issues, but this is way over the top- NO MORE!!!!!

Regardless of whether you like both/either one of these guys, don't you think this is counterproductive and divides conservatives at a time we REALLY REALLY need to be together?

Michael Savage attacks Glenn Beck; calls him the 'hemorrhoid with eyes', crazy, and a fraud (among other things) after Glenn announces he may be going blind.

He also predicts 'something is about to happen' to Glenn that will conveniently increase his ratings.

Savage also claims that Beck is a failure in radio, but um..has anyone compared their ratings?

I used 2b a REALLY die-hard fan.

Savage changed about 5 years ago. He’s VERY talented, but now I know why so many people, “stab him in the back”:

Because HE stabs people in the back.

He...probably care about Conservativism in general, but often instead he’s out for himself.

I don’t listen 2 him anymore, 2 bad cuz he used 2b great.

I listen to Savage once in a while, but they’re going to have to throw a net over him eventually.

I know there’s plenty here on FR that like Savage, but personally I think he’s a moron.

Indefensible. If somebody at the polar opposite end of the spectrum from where I stand...Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore, etc....announced they were going blind, they would get my prayers and sympathy as basic human decency would demand.

Savage doesn’t like anyone that is more popular than he is. All he sees is his own reflection in the mirror. He takes credit for anything anyone else does. He even claims he was the beginning of the Tea Party. If he could he would lay claim to the Young Republicans when they first started. His opinion, according to him is the only thing that counts. This is obvious in his radio show. He only has people call in to give him talking points. He could care less what their opinions are.

He doesn’t like Glenn Beck because he knows that Mr. Beck is right and has the documentation to back himself up. All Savage has is his opinion. Not worth worrying about.

They’re both nuts.

Savage is angry, and unstable.
Beck is a drama queen and unstable.

Neither one of them is helping the cause.

There’s only one man from whom I’ll take negativity and crankiness over the airwaves, and it isn’t Michael Savage. Heard him once and that was all I needed.

I really dislike savage.

I am convinced that most of the people who hate Rush have never listened to him because he comes on during the work day. Instead they listen to Savage because he comes on later in the afternoon and they just assume that Rush says the same things.

The thing about savage is that he isn't even consistent, he will rail on someone for doing or saying something, and then the next thing you know he is doing or saying the same thing. In my opinion he is more of a shock jock than a political talk show host. And he is very Petty and automatically hates anyone he is in direct competition with.

In short he is everything the left accuses conservative talk radio of being.

"I think he’s a nut."

I've always thought that but I used to think he was an entertaining nut. However as he got more and more nasty, even when there was no need to be, I got turned off big time. Now I avoid him.

I don’t really care for either of them. Beck is funny but he’s a dramaqueen. Savage isn’t funny and he’s just dramaMEAN.

Savage is a narcissist of Obamaean proportions. He can't abide people he sees as intellectual inferiors being more successful than he.

There is an additional point here. Talk Radio is a competitive medium.There is not a lot of recognition of the work of one broadcaster by another. You don't hear Praeger referencing Rush or vice versa. Or Levine referencing Hewitt.It's different on the blogs and the mags. NRO Corner will send you to Weekly Standard for a story.Gateway will link to Ace for a scoop. Talk Radio is about entertainment and ratings and money. And with Savage's mental illness that combines for some very nasty stuff emenating from his mike.

I totally agree with what you say.

Off-topic, but I do wish you'd refrain from debasing the English language by employing "twitter-speak," but that is just my personal opinion, and if you don't like it, I'll still agree with your sentiment about Savage (I refuse to follow his name with a hundred exclamation points as I see on FR frequently). I think he's an unlistenable A-hole.

I'm a bit of an old fart, and I find the shorthand hard to decipher. In the classic expression, "It's not you, it's me." What you wrote is not tough, but look at your average teen-ager's text message and you'll know what I mean.

i listen to both of them. they are both drama queens. both have issues.

i like savage because he doesnt follow party lines. i like beck because he talks about things no one else in the media will. they both do that.

both say things i may not agree with, but i just drop one because my little heart is offended.

they both talk abotu subjects im interested in, so i will continue to listen to both.

I honestly think Savage is a bit bipolar with somewhat of an ineriority complex.coming from NYC he has that mental thing going on related to it.
Otherwise he is brilliant and sharp in talents but with this cloud that goes with him.

I don’t think he’s a nut. Well, not yet.

I think he’s a fake.

He’s a liberal who adopted an over-the-top populist (not really conservative, or at least not a thinking conservative) persona and is GOING crazy as a result.

I used to listen to Savage a lot back in the nineties... AND... giving credit where it is due, he was banging the drum on Borders! Language! Culture! for a long time before it became a major issue for ~anybody~ else.

But even in that he was always something of a one-trick pony. It was the same show over, and over, and over again.

I don’t dislike him, I’m just exhausted of him.

If I'm in the car when he comes on (after 7pm) and I'm by myself (no children), I'll turn him on to see what's going on. I'm like the others, I don't care for his attacks on others due to his "It's all about me" issues. I do enjoy when he tells some of his stories from long ago or growing up in NYC. Mostly non political stuff.

But, I'm rarely in the car by myself these days, and even more rarely after 7pm. lol

As far as I’m concerned, Savage is an embarrassment to conservatism. This kind of cruel and uncaring commentary is the kind of stuff I expect from the juveniles at DU.

I happened over to HuffPo yesterday and read about two pages of comments to the announcement of Glenn’s diagnosis. To my shock (and pleasure) the vast majority of posters expressed sympathy and well wishes, and chided the few who made comments a la Savage.

Something is wrong with Savage. I dont listen to him, ever.

Not doing so only embiggens Savage’s penchant for jealous insults. The cromulent thing to do is to refudiate immediately.

Just for the record, I’m used to Savage being a bit of a jerk towards his colleagues, but last night he took it WAY too far. I turned him off and I won’t be turning him back on for some time, if at all.

They finally pulled Savage off the radio here in the Seattle area. He is a raving lunatic. The loud A-hole at the end of the bar. He has no respect for any other conservative host. He's trashed them all, and has made up insulting names for all of them.

Seems Beck is taking shots from all sides. I guess some just can’t have another guy upstaging them. Both Levin, Savage, Truther Jones and Birther Rev.Manning like to pick on Beck. Why not pick on leftists Keith Olbermann or Mike Malloy. Those are the real villans.

Savage is obsessed with the success of others in his profession; it eats him alive. The nut can't go a full 3 hours without attacking Hannity, Beck, or Rush.

I caught some of the Beck “I may be going blind” stuff this morning.

What is that all about? I didn’t get the point.
