One of the most compelling aspects of Michael Savage that I enjoy is his unpredictability --Savage is a free thinker. A true independent on the radio syndication fortress that has been dumbed down into a mind-numbing sameness for sometime now.
Fortunately, the popular San Francisco-based syndicated talker didn't get the memo.
Savage is Jewish --passionately so but is independent to the core and doesn't mind saying so. Even reckless at times--my opinion.
Don't believe me? Read this then. That doesn't preclude him, however, from flipping the switch and calling out what he refers to as "Jew-hating selves" --particularly those on the left who feel compelled to criticize Israel and its policies, no matter what; even in an era of blatant anti-Semitism that permeates the globe.
It was evident in Paris and beyond. It has tentacles elsewhere too. It has reached both the local and national media. Even those voices here that have tried hard to remain objective and not succumb to apologizing for Israel's action largess, (even when it had no choice) have been exposed by Savage's calling-out. Not everyone is convinced--they never are.
When Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu made his historic speech last week to Congress to talk about Iran's nuclear bomb ambitions, the independent Savage praised the address and chided President Obama for his remarks later. It was a far cry from the usual suspects--most of them Jewish commentators-- who have consistently ripped Israel no matter what--which would be perfectly acceptable but draws suspicion when they are so gung-ho predictable and they are.
Thankfully, Savage is anything but.
And I commend him for that even if others won't.
