The Cancelled Nation

The liberal media elite seem like the top candidate.

Members of The Savage Nation often use that group as their basic default scapegoat. Whoever they select, those individuals will certainly find somebody else to blame for The Savage Nation getting cancelled on MSNBC other than the racist, homophobe, pseudo-intellectual, loud-mouthed, scared little man who did it to himself.

On Saturday, Michael Savage (a.k.a The Savage Weiner) did a little skit about airlines and then asked for calls.

He then received a prank.

There was nothing obscene or threatening about the call. It was just a standard prank that all live talk show hosts eventually face. And Savage, who uses the pseudonym in place of his given last name - Weiner, faced it by showing his juvenile mentality.

After asking the caller if he was a sodomite, The Savage Weiner continued by stating, “Oh, you’re one of the sodomites. You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How’s that? Why don’t you see if you can sue me, you pig. You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage. You have got nothing to do today, go eat a sausage and choke on it.”

Eventually he said gay people mean nothing to him and asked for another caller who had a bad night at the bathhouse.

He could have made the same kind of tirade against minorities, women or just about any other group he does not like. The caller just happened to hit his homosexual bigotry button.

MSNBC didn’t seem to like his comment, which they are entitled to do. The Savage Weiner is equally entitled to express his opinions. However, MSNBC is also allowed to notice an obvious difference between hard-hitting and challenging opinions and Savage’s just flat-out hatred.

And that was exactly what the company did.

The network fired him.

It was just a simple case of a boss not liking something work-based that an employee did. Nothing more, nothing less.

However, The Weiner Nation rallied around him, passing blame to just about anybody else other than Savage for the incident.
