Michael Savage Says Obama Wants Ebola Epidemic To Make U.S. A Third World Nation
October 3, 2014

They're not hiding their hate now. It's fully out in the open. Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, all of them. But Michael Savage's little rant was so utterly bizarre that I have to believe all two of his listeners will probably hear the voices in their heads and act on them while they know the Secret Service is in disarray.

Right Wing Watch:

He claimed that a treasonous Obama “wants to infect the nation with Ebola,” warning that the president decided to send U.S. service members to West Africa in hopes that one of the soldiers would contract Ebola and bring it back home.

That's charge number one. Treasonous Obama, my ass. Seditious Savage applies here.

Charge number two:

Savage suggested that Obama seeks to bring the Ebola epidemic to America in order to turn the U.S. into a Third World nation and bring the country down: “That’s the way to make things fair and equitable. You can’t have a nation with such good health in a world where there’s such sickness. Obama wants equality and he wants fairness and it’s only fair that America have a nice epidemic or two or three or four in order to really feel what it’s like to be in the Third World. You have to look at it from the point of view of a leftist.”

What the f*ck kind of sick, twisted thinking is this? Seriously, who invents this stuff and pretends it's worth polluting minds and airwaves across the country?

And yet, some yahoo in East Podunk, Idaho is hanging on his every word, nodding and agreeing to everything Savage alleges with no filter for utter bull.

Here's a conspiracy theory for you. I think these people say outlandish things in order to make all of us so tired of their crap that we'll let Republicans take over so they'll STFU. That will happen over my cold, dead body.

Can you help us out?
