Media Matters - Savage called Iraqi witnesses of alleged Haditha massacre "vermin" and "scum"
Savage called Iraqi witnesses of alleged Haditha massacre "vermin" and "scum," proclaimed detained Marines are American "POWs"
Just in case you thought irony was still alive:
"SAVAGE: It's all coming from the Iraqi scum -- and I'm gonna say it like it is, the vermin we're fighting. The vermin we're fighting are accusing our Marines, and our Marines are now in the brig wearing shackles. I've never heard this, [caller]. This would be the equivalent of German civilians accusing Americans of atrocities, and the military taking the side of the German civilians during the war against Hitler. That's exactly what's going on here.
. . . . . . .
Does it not even occur to him that referring to people as "vermin" and "scum" is precisely what the Nazis did, to dehumanize them so that they could be exterminated?
He goes on to say that all the reporters publishing the story of the Haditha massacre are "enemy agents" and should be put in "shackles" until they can prove their innocence. Oh, and Jack Murtha, too.
