Yesterday we took a drive to my son’s college and on the way back we listened to a portion of Michael Savage’s radio show. Not a fan of conservative talk radio, but sometimes when you are on the road you have limited options. My husband said don’t you want to hear what the other side is saying? So we listened. The beginning of the show featured a clip from President Obama, but underneath the clip you could hear another vile, profane clip of men saying they wanted to kill white people. This was a clip of the New Black Panthers which probably have a total of 20 members in the entire country, but they got major air time on the Savage show because they help further the narrative of be very afraid. Savage also told the story of a white guy that was beaten up by six wild black guys and for good measure he threw in the deranged man that walked into the Family Research Center with intent to kill, but his efforts were thwarted by the security guard. Savage managed to somehow connect all of these various acts to the President, and the only answer to this was to defeat the president. His line of logic was absolutely jaw dropping. The president does not scare me, but I must admit Mr. Savage did because he sounded so convincing and as a master storyteller who has a national platform he has the ability to change hearts and minds on a daily basis, and that is scary.
Listened to conservative talk radio lately? It’s downright scary
