But if you're not rich or well connected or a right-wing shock jock, try broadcasting death threats to elected officials like Glenn Beck and see what happens. As long as you consistently preach hatred of Muslims and strike fear into Americans, you can pretty well get away with anything.
The New Yorker Magazine's Strange Embrace of Hate-Spewing Shock Jock Michael Savage
Plus, once you get to know Savage and hang out with him on his deck at his Bay Area home and share a beer, you discover he's "a first-rate host, chatty and solicitous." And who knew that Savage "loves to talk about his well-worn Hebrew Bible, which is full of annotations and post-it notes"? Indeed, Savage is a man in search of "the right way to articulate his Jewish heritage."
Savage (nee WEINER) does a splendid job of 'articulating' his Jewish heritage..... by spreading fear, sowing hate and fanning the flames of bigotry and racism.
Someone with those credentials should live and work in Israel.
Perhaps 'Mikey" is a big fan of another radical, Saul Alinsky, a Marxist Commie from Chicago admired by HRM Hillary Clinton.
Saul wrote the communist handbook, "Rules for Radicals."
Which opens with this statement:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
And some of Saul's rules for his Communist/Bolshevik/Zionist pupils:
RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
RULE 10. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign."
RULE 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
