    Let's show this moneygrubbing chickenhawk what we think of those who want to step on our rights.

    E-mail jfarah@worldnetdaily.com stating why you are boycotting World Net Daily until Michael Savage is no longer a columnist there.

    Keep it up!

    Good day,

    I am writing this letter to inform you that I will no longer purchase your products or subscribe to any of your publications or listen to your broadcasts until you sever all ties with the columnist Michael Savage for his outright disrespect for the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.

    Thank you for your time.

    Best Wishes.

    Don't really know who the guy is, but if he wrote that he is a terrible writer.

    And he is horribly out of touch with reality. As many (most, all?) of us here know, the police are the one's that get the real "assault weapons" while us mere civilians are only allowed semi-auto-only "lookalikes."

    Seems to me, from that one post of his, the guy's a loon and can't be taken seriously by anyone.

    Savage is ranked up there with Limbaugh among talk radio people.

    I think he is either seriously confused or playing Devil's Advocate.

    He's

    playing the market share with this statement. He has stated numerous times he is full on R2KBA and personally owns AW as define by California. It's rhetoric for ratings.

    I won't boycott Dr. Savage.
    I agree with him on many things, and I think that your boycott is rather misinformed.

    RD5589, where did you get this idea from? I've seen the exact same post on the SCCC forums and I'm trying to find out who's starting this. Savage has been pro-2nd on his show. Give him the input he asked for, don't run around boycotting him.

    I don't know who he is either. I am fairly certain I don't buy from him. I have trouble seeing how boycotting a radio personality will really impact him, but y'all are welcome to try.

    Perhaps the original poster should re-read the entire article, again..or is trolling...

    Savage is a mouth who people like to hear talk. He used to be a left wing talk show host. For the past decade or so he has been a right wing talk show host. The guy would run around the Lower East Side in a dress and heels singing "Hello my baby ... (Telephone Rag)" if it paid his (mounting legal) bills. If you'll listen to it and pay to hear it, he'll say it.

    I'm with you. Savage is an outright, professional liar. I can't stand him because he is disingenuous.

    Savage is a change agent. He gets paid to shape public opinion. He purports to be conservative, and then he'll spout something radical, like the anti-assault weapon rhetoric.

    You guys don't get it.

    He's trying to get people to call his radio show.

    He's got at least one AR, and waxes poetic about the .45 he carries.

    I don't know how he feels about RKBA, really. I'm not sure I'd call him consistent on a number of things. Sometimes it's hard to tell if he's just trying to get a rise from people, or if he's being straight.

    A boycott is not the right response to him at this point. You sound like you're eager to fall into a trap.

    He asked a question. Answer it.

    THEN boycott if he goes on with anti-gun ranting or something.

    But not as a first step.

    No offense, but that would be really STUPID. Boycotting a professional provocateur, instead of answering a question he has posed, as a first step, is self-defeating at best. It seems immature, and it seems like something that the MoveOn-style liberals would do: when you don't have a good argument, then threaten people. It makes us sound like we don't have a leg to stand on, so we have to try to use force before using reason.

    If you don't know anything about Michael Savage, and most of you sound like you don't, at least find out a few things first, just like you would with anyone else.

    His website seems quite conservative to me.

    Ive never read anything or even heard him till this thread.

    Jusat shows me that anyone can have a web site and be a political broadcaster. Radio will come soon after that.

    I have the stuff to do it. I think I will.

    I'm against criminals having guns, add me to your boycott list.

    Seriously...you want to boycott this knucklehead because he's a little less than unlimited 100% pro 2A? Aren't there about a million others more deserving of your outrage?

    I read the post.

    Savage is merely stirring up controversy for his show. I find him the hardest talk-show-host to figure out - there's something disingenuous about him and he's clearly only in it for the money (he used to be a liberal talk show host, now a quasi-"conservative"). His whole shtick is to purposefully antagonizing people, even his own audience. I don't listen to him anymore.

    Who knows what he really believes.

    I'm not sure he's just in it for the money. People are motivated by all sorts of things. I think he really loves the game, sometimes. Don't play into that!

    However, like Howard Stern, he is keenly aware of a fundamental principle in his business: people who get angry at a radio host can sometimes provide higher ratings and devote more listening time than anyone else.

    He's not necessarily conservative, either. But when he's not, he doesn't swing towards libertarian. He's a social conservative, on some levels.

    Like I said, don't fall into his traps (or anyone's -- there are plenty of people in the political arena who are looking for exactly that, and nothing else, for many reasons).

    Is that guy retarded?
    First, he suggests that LEO's aren't allowed to carry assault rifles.
    Then he suggests that he thinks assault weapons ought to be outlawed...
    THEN he suggests that we should "stop the flood of weapons that come from Mexico".. what?

    And here's the kicker: He calls himself a conservative?
    ...
    What..?

    he is clearly against illegal aliens and amnesty.

    and anti-gunners tend to be heavily pro alien amnesty.

    How About Listening to Him....

    I think if all of his detracters would listen to what he says on a regular basis they would understand what he means when he asks such questions. Michael Savage IS PRO gun,period! All radio talk show hosts that take listener phone calls have to ask such questions or ,no phone calls,no debate + no radio show. I have listened to him for a long time and YES he is abrasive but definately conservitive.:scrutiny:
