Michael Savage sells out George Zimmerman for ratings

Michael Savage sells out Zimmerman for ratings

At least that’s how I see it.

Last week Conservative talk show host Michael savage proclaimed “You have to find this man guilty. A thinking person would see that the only thing Zimmerman is “guilty” of is defending himself against a thug. But unfortunately for Savage, most Conservative talk show hosts are thinking people and believe the same Zimmerman only defended himself. If Savage were to just agree with them he wouldn’t get much attention.

For him to stick out, he would have to say something contrary to what the other talk hosts are saying. To do that he has to smear Zimmerman, abandon common sense and display his lack of knowledge about guns and their use in self defense.

Savage claims that while on the phone with the 911 operator, Zimmerman remarks “f**** coon”, proving Zimmerman is a racist. Other people listening to the same tape believe Zimmerman said “f**** cold”. I haven’t heard the tape but being as Zimmerman is in either his late 20’s or mid 30’s, I doubt he would have used the outdated “coon” racial slur, especially when talking to a 911 operator.

Savage claims because Zimmerman was carrying his gun, a Kel Tec PF9 with the safety off and a round in the chamber, he was “hunting for someone to shoot or intimidate with his gun”.

If savage, who claims to have done more research than anyone else about this case had bothered to research the technical details of the Kel Tec PF9, he would know that it DOESN’T HAVE A SAFETY. The Kel Tec PF9 is double-action only and apparently has a very long and heavy trigger pull. As for a round being in the chamber, except for The Army Military Police, why in the hell would you carry a gun for defense and NOT HAVE A ROUND IN THE CHAMBER???

If you know any police officers who carry a semi-auto weapon ask them if they carry a round in the chamber. Also, with a double-action semi-auto, there is no need to carry it with the safety on.

Lastly, Savage claims that because Zimmerman only received minor injuries, he didn’t need to shoot Martin. I don’t think I need to explain that the goal of self defense is to put down your attacker BEFORE you’re seriously injured. I think Zimmerman would have had difficulty shooting Martin, if he had waited until Martin had beaten him unconscious.

If you listen to Savage much, and he usually does a great show, you’ll notice that about the only time he mentions other Conservative talk show hosts is to bash them. Most other Conservative talk show hosts are friendly with their Conservative competition, sometimes even having them on their show. Not Savage.

I think Savage is only taking this position, which is contrary to common sense is because he wants to stick out from the other Conservative talk show hosts and increase his ratings.
