Talk Radio Network’s Michael Savage has unleashed some particularly disgusting anti-gay nonsense on his show this week.
“I had to explain to my young son why these two men were holding hands the other day,” said one caller on the June 16th broadcast of anti-gay radio show host Michael Savage’s radio show.
“You’ve got to explain to the children … why God told people this was wrong. You have to explain this to them in this time of mental rape that’s going on. The children’s minds are being raped by the homosexual mafia, that’s my position. They’re raping our children’s minds.”
Media Matters reports that earlier that day another caller had called in to discuss same-sex marriage.
Said Savage: “It’s not a joke when you pervert an institution like marriage, which is in trouble enough. It’s not a joke. Our children are being destroyed by this. It’s a very important story. The children don’t know what to make of it. Children nine, 10 are saying, ‘I’m gay.’ They don’t know what it even means. It’s a giant propaganda machine trying to pervert children.”
