An update on radio host Michael Savage, who's been hired to do a TV show for MSNBC: FAIR has put out an alert with some choice Savage soundbites. A sample:

"Turd world" immigrants are a frequent target of Savage's anger: "You open the door to them, and the next thing you know, they are defecating on your country and breeding out of control" (Oregonian, 4/24/02).

At times Savage's arguments echo the conspiratorial scapegoating of the white supremacist movement: "With the [Latino] population that has emerged, since they breed like rabbits, in many cases the whites will become a minority in their own nation... The white people don't breed as often for whatever reason. I guess many homosexuals are involved. That is also part of the grand plan, to push homosexuality to cut down on the white race" (San Francisco Bay Guardian, 9/20/00).

I won't buy a damn thing advertised on this man's show.

Atrios's comments section has the full FAIR alert. (And thanks to Atrios for the link to this site.)
