What's next? Sending suicide bombers to Cancun?

The right-wing is continuing its drive to turn us into a laughing stock among civilized nations.

One of the wingnuts, a hateful talk radio host, Michael Savage (whose real last name, by the way, is Weiner - very appropriate, for such a little prick) is urging his listeners to take to the streets and burn Mexican flags, to show their displeasure over immigrants.

According to Media Matters: "Savage claimed that the only way to combat the onslaught of illegal immigrants is through protest and asked his audience to "[b]urn a Mexican flag for America, burn a Mexican flag for those who died that you should have a nationality and a sovereignty, go out in the street and show you're a man, burn 10 Mexican flags, if I could recommend it. Put one in the window upside down and tell them to go back where they came from!"

Lovely.

So now they want us to look like those mobs you see in Gaza or Iran burning the U.S. flag and chanting Death to the Great Satan.

I know we're supposed to get all outraged when we see that, and fume - oh my God, they're burning Old Glory, but I always just laugh at those mobs. They look so pathetic and impotent. To get so riled up and your big response is burning a piece of cloth. Pitiful.

And now, that's what the hatemongers on the right want us to do to another nation's flag.

By the time Bush and his crowd get out of office, we're going to be using witch doctors and potion makers for medicine, and cowering in fear at eclipses. Today's GOP - buildng a bridge to the 18th century.

They fired that guy from MSNBC because of some stupid thing he said. I didn't know he was still on the radio.

Hey anonymous, if you think Savage is an American "hero" you are an idiot. He is bigoted creep, and if you like him, I wonder what that says about you. Oh, wait, I know what it says...

farfar, he shows what he is by hiding behind anonymous - a typical conservative hatemonger who only know to bash people who are different from them, especially if they are darker or speak with an accent. These are typical of George Bush's voters.

jbk - just a reminder, Mike Savage got fired from MSNBC for telling a gay caller he hoped he would get AIDS and die. That's the American hero that the anonymous poster was praising.

Mike Weiner should be fired from whatever radio station he is still on for saying such hateful things about burning a Mexican flag. How sad is it that there are people cheering him on.

Michael Savage is a fool and anyone who lauds him is too. But we DO have to worry about our borders and having people flood in, I don't care if they are from Mexico or Canada. We have to be able to control our borders as a nation. And I'm sorry but that doesnt make me a bigot, it's just common sense.
