Pop quiz: Which of these factors contributed to the start of World War II?
  • Economic factors in Germany being such that 'making paper airplanes' was a better use for money than 'spending ' or 'saving.'
  • Hitler stirring things up, babbling about lebensraum, invading Poland, etc.
  • Gay people (also: people who wear leather).

If you answered with 1 and/or 2, great job, you're undeniably less retarded than Michael Savage. That's right, Michael Savage believes that gay people and leather clothing were the largest contributors to the start of the second World War. In case you've forgotten, this is the same Michael Savage who went berserk* when people imprisoned by the United States were given trials, so he's got a pretty grand history of lunacy at this point. Here comes MediaMatters with the quote:

"[S]ocially, we're far worse -- more degenerate than Wiemar Germany. At least in
Wiemar Germany, men couldn't marry men and women couldn't marry women. So we're probably 10 leagues below the degeneracy that brought about Hitler. We're
probably 50 leagues below the degeneracy that brought about Hitler. We are the
sickest, most disgusting country on the earth."

6.54 wrote about the dangers of gay marriage a few weeks ago: polar ice caps melting, Russian invasion, all sorts of awful stuff. But even he didn't foresee the true danger: Hitler. Hell, we'd actually be lucky to get away with merely Hitler this time, given that in Wiemar Germany men couldn't marry men and women couldn't marry women. Having our standard-grade degeneracy mixed with this ultra-strength gay marriage degeneracy will almost certainly result in some sort of super-Hitler (uberhitler?), an unstoppable force of evil that will leave every. last. gay. married.

I had no idea that gay marriage was this dangerous. Thank you Michael Savage, you've saved us all.

*Ahahahahhahaa god I just reread that quote of his in that piece, even 5 months later I laugh until I cry whenever I see that. Just imagining Savage quaking with anger at the thought of evidence being presented against those who are accused of having done wrong, it does not, and will not ever, get any funnier than that.


  1. By the way JJ could you use the Analytics magic and see if "The Unspeakable Fury of Michael Savage" was ever linked on Crooks and Liars? Google seems to say it was, but the cache doesn't have it anymore. If it was I might have to give up on writing for the train, it's never gonna get cooler than that.

  2. Driving back from VA, I had a lot of time on my hands, and while trying to find some news, I found Michael Savage. But as it turns out, it wasn't him. In an even funnier twist, it was a wannabe Michael Savage, who was angry and crazy, but not nearly as "polished" as the real deal and spent much of his show quoting and talking about Savage and Rush.

    That brings us to the question: Which is sadder? The real Michael Savage, or some wannabe who models themselves (unsuccessfully) after his persona?
