Dr. Savage blasted Canadian scientist David Suzuki for declaring on Bill Moyers’ PBS program that “global warming” deniers should be jailed.
Noting that Suzuki “has always looked like a car that needs a tune-up,” Savage reserved most of his criticism for Moyers (who he called “the baggy-eyed Bolshevik”) and the Republican Party; Savage says the GOP should have worked harder to defund the public broadcaster years ago (Free audio).
Savage played clips from the most offensive commencement speeches delivered this week by powerful Democrats and warned that their divisive “class warfare” rhetoric is alarmingly similar to the kind once heard in Hitler’s Germany: “When Hitler’s great experiments were not going as fast as he wanted them to go, he created a scapegoat: the Jew.
“In our time, the scapegoats are white people and rich people,” Savage continued. “They are the new scapegoats for Obama’s lies, scandals and failures” (Free audio).
The Veterans Affairs Administration “is the modern embodiment of the death panel,” Limbaugh declared this week, following the shocking revelations about the mistreatment of patients at VA hospitals.
“You had 40 veterans on a special waiting list,” he explained, “and the government workers that pared that list down got a bonus for making the list shorter. How’d the list get shorter? Fewer people on it. How’d that happen? They died” (Free audio).
Limbaugh can’t understand why the president, of all people, seems not to know what is going on in the country until the latest scandal makes headlines.
“I have the instant solution for Obama’s problem,” quipped Limbaugh. “All Barack Obama has to do is listen to one hour of this program every day, and he’ll know everything that’s going on” (Free audio).
Mark Levin called Harry Reid “the Donald Sterling of the Senate” after the Reid and other Democrats amped up their calls for the Washington Redskins to change their “racist” name to a less offensive one. Levin pointed out that the Democrats “have done nothing to fix minority unemployment,” but are using the Redskins “controversy” to paint themselves as anti-racist champions (Free audio).
It’s another American tradition that the president seems uncomfortable with: Levin mocked Obama’s inability to competently throw out the first pitch at a baseball game, even after all these years in office. Levin offered to teach the president how it’s done, “for the sake of the nation” (Free audio).
On Tuesday, Ingraham and her guest, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, argued furiously about immigration reform. Ingraham called Norquist a whiner when he tried to change the subject.
Norquist hit back, asking Ingraham why she was so critical of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who she calls a pro-amnesty “billionaire robber baron.”
“You can be a populist without being snotty at people who have been successful and done stuff,” Norquist chided the host.
Ingraham’s other guests this week included physician and author Ben Carson and Major League Baseball coach Mookie Wilson (Free audio).
“Can we save the country? The answer is no,” Beck said. “The country has to want to save itself.”
He was reacting to tea-party favorite Mark Bevin’s loss to Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky Republican primary. Beck added that perhaps politics was “far too big. The answer is not there,” and instead, the key to America’s future might lie in the individual (Free audio).
Ed Schultz announced the cancellation of his low-rated radio show this week, and Beck and his on-air team couldn’t contain their delight (Free audio).
They reminded listeners that Schultz had continuously vowed to “bring down” Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk radio hosts. Now, they joked, Schultz should give up broadcasting once and for all and become “a K-Mart greeter.”
