9780452284944: The Savage Nation: Saving America from the Liberal Assault on Our Borders, Language, and Culture

From the best-selling, conservative author of Abuse of Power, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder, Trickle Down Tyranny, Trickle Up Poverty, and A Time for War, comes a bold foray into the dangerous game of politics, media, and the changing course of American culture. 

In this raucous and unapologetic manifesto, Michael Savage illustrates how years of liberal brainwashing—from the media, politicians, and left-wing pundits—have changed the direction of America, for the very worst.

Each week almost eight million radio listeners across the nation tune in to "The Michael Savage Show."  His fearless and passionate assault on liberal thought and politics addresses everything from illegal immigrants to PETA, from the "Hollywood idiots" to that "international government" that is the United Nations.

In his trademark in-your-face style, Savage reinforces patriotism, family, and "American values", laying out a plan to once again reclaim our country's identity.

Review:

Michael Savage is the host of The Savage Nation, a radio program that airs on over 300 stations nationwide. A self-described victim of "truth-in-mouth syndrome," he claims to be "the only man in the country saying it the way it really is." His stated purpose for writing the book is to save a "homosexualized, feminized America" from a liberal assault that is "unraveling the very fabric of this great nation." Declaring that "a minority of feminist zealots rule the culture," he blames Democrats and liberals for everything from a general decline in morals in the United States to bringing the Taliban to power in Afghanistan. Although one chapter is entitled "Crimes of the Democrats" (with special attention paid to Al Gore), Savage is no Republican stooge--this "bipartisan basher" reserves plenty of venom for the GOP as well, particularly regarding immigration, one of his favorite subjects. Savage calls for a severe tightening of U.S. borders and vigilant racial profiling in order to combat terrorism and the spread of infectious diseases. He also rails against liberal media bias, big government, the lack of prayer in schools, rampant pornography, the UN, the ACLU, and a host of social ills that he believes were caused almost exclusively by hippies in the 1960s and the Clinton administration in the 1990s.

Like many talk-show personalities, Savage is confrontational, angry, entertaining, and prone to exaggeration, sometimes all at once. He can also be funny and sarcastic. But while he does offer some interesting observations and enough food for thought to make this slim volume worth a read, his book is essentially one long rant with precious little useful information to back up his often bombastic claims. His angry-man shtick may make for stimulating drive-time listening (and high ratings), but it doesn't make for a particularly convincing book. --Shawn Carkonen
