Michael Savage: Hawaiians May Return to ‘Cannibalism’ After Kicking ‘White Man Out’
July 23, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Controversial Shock Jock Michael Savage, who peddles a daily mishmash of race-baiting, bigotry, hate and wild conspiracy theories to millions of listeners from his syndicated perch at Talk Radio Network, is on the extreme edge of the kooky right-wing fringe. He makes hate talker Rush Limbaugh look positively endearing at times. Savage, banned from entering the UK because of his hate speech, jumped the shark a long time ago with his incendiary vitriol. For that reason, this writer usually ignores his World Net Daily-supported conspiratorial nonsense. But there are times, when Savage even outdoes himself. His latest rant declaring that Hawaii would return to the dark days of “cannibalism” after kicking out white people, is one of those times.
Savage made his “cannibalism” remarks during his July 19 radio program, The Savage Nation, wherein he also mocked the Hawaiian language. Although Savage lived in Hawaii for a number of years and even obtained a degree from the University of Hawaii, he apparently didn’t soak up any of the culture, preferring to engage in race-baiting and promoting hateful stereotypes depicting Hawaiians as savages:
“I loved Hawaii. I lived there many many years, it’s an interesting all syllables. But you don’t know about that are they going to be independent very soon. I don’t know how they’re going to make a living, they’re going to kick the white man out then what they going to have cannibalism again, oops sorry,” said Savage during Monday’s show.
After his incendiary remarks, KHON2 in Hawaii took issue with Savage’s “atrocious” claim that Hawaiians were once human-flesh eating cannibals.
Vicky Holt Takamine of the Ilioulaokalani Coalition, said “We’ve never kicked anybody off of our ‘aina, never. And to claim that we’re cannibals that is just atrocious.”
“Bastardization of our Hawaiian language let alone English you know syllables, he never learned much from the University of Hawaii when he was here,” said Holt Takamine. “I think that we as native Hawaiian people are alarmed that this kind of mentality still exists in today’s world.”
Savage has previously taken aim at autism, calling the condition “a racket” designed to get disability payments for “poorer families who have found a new way to be parasites on the government.” And he was fired from MSNBC in 2003, after his infamous attack on a caller, “as one of those sodomites,” adding “You should only get AIDS and die, you pig; how’s that?”
