MICHAEL SAVAGE'S UNAPOLOGY
How pathetic. Michael Savage now has an "apology"
for his remarks(see further below) that cost him his MSNBC show. His claim is that he's spent his "entire lifetime" healing the sick and in no way meant to trivialize the AIDS crisis. He particularly apologized to his gay listeners. I'm sure both of them are pleased.
He claimed he did not know the remarks were being broadcast. I'll bet. But he made them all the same, calling the caller(whatever his origin; Savage claims it was a crank) a "sodomite" and saying "you should only get AIDS and die, you pig."
Fine words, whatever the context, from a "healer of the sick." I'm sure the medical profession is proud. Not that he is
a member of said profession, though he is a PhD in "herbal medicine." Which is awfully impressive, isn't it--not that the medical profession considers herbal medicine at all scientific or, indeed, medicine.
We often say what we really mean when we're angry, however ashamed we might later be of having revealed our true nature in such a way. Wishing AIDS on a "sodomite" is kind of hard to take out of context, and for him to claim he only said that because he thought it was a crank reveals him to not only be a bigot but a cowardly one as well. Are these such trivial matters to a "healer of the sick" that he thinks there are some times it's appropriate? D'ya think he's saying this because it's possible he might lose his radio show for it as well?
He can crawl as much as he likes. You cannot unring a bell. He can say what he likes, and can be judged by it. Good riddance to the spineless bastard.
