Savage Weiner Versus Lesbian Fascists!

Radio talk show host Michael Savage (née Weiner) performed a public service last Wednesday, and I would just like to take a moment to salute this great American, for identifying yet another in the ever growing list of -fascisms we face today.  Blogfascism, Islamofascism, and actual fascism has now been joined by perhaps the most pernicious, subversive, yet totally HOT version yet:  Lesbian Fascism.
Via Media Matters, we see that on his September 13th program, Weiner-Savage attacked Rosie O’Donnell’s remarks about “radical Christianity” by stating, “[o]nly if you’re insane and you want to die would you promote this kind of lesbian fascism.”

Some well-intentioned but misguided people might pepper Savage with follow-up questions, such as, “WTF?”  But any fair-minded observer would have to concede that daytime TV lesbians model the defining characteristics of fascism just as rigorously as do their brothers in armed struggle, the Islamic extremists.  For instance, anyone who has ever knocked back an Anchor Steam at Cattyshack in Brooklyn knows that the conversation is invariably dominated by an obsession with national security, and the urgent necessity to entwine religion and government.  At a recent Lambda Legal event honoring Martina Navratilova, the cocktail swilling bulldykes were all abuzz over the importance of suppressing labor, while protecting corporate perogatives.  And when it comes to disdain for intellectuals and the arts, and the vital need to secure the supremacy of the military, back off boys!  The Sappho-fascists are large and in-charge.

As many of you know, the major thing about the blogsphere that I detest is its Orwellian tendency to divorce words from their meaning, so I’d just like to thank Mr. Savage for his scrupulous adherence to lexicological integrity.  Oh, and for seriously spiking the sales of old Ilsa movies.

Just when I start thinking that the internet is irrevocably stupid, you post a golden nugget of integrity and truth that makes me want to watch exploitation movies of the seventies.
Thank You, ScottC, for making me laugh at rightwingonuttery AND love–AGAIN!

Spot on.
And, oh yes, I, for one, welcome our lesbian fascist overlords. I suspect we’d get along well.
Savage weiner! Savage WEINER! Ohhohohohohohohohohohohahahahahahahahahahohohohohohohohohahahahahhahhhhaaaaaaaa!
Fascism is already here. The US gov’t cages protestors, bans books like “America Deceived” from Amazon, steals private lands, rigs elections and starts wars based on lies. On the flip-side, lesbian overlords does not sound all that bad.
Support indy media.
Final link (before Google Books caves to pressure and drops the title):

When I read the phrase “lesbian fascist,” the first face that popped into my mind was Mary Cheney’s.
Oh, well, I’m not sure I welcome Mary Cheney as my new overlord…
Let Us Now Define Our Isms:
I cut and pasted the following from Merriam Webster Online Dictionary (it’s called fair use, so don’t sue me):
1 : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2 : a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control.
So is FascISM the latest ISM we’re now at war with? Isms are tough to kill. WW II in Europe was mostly a war against Hitler’s Third Reich and ended in 1945; if we’d declared war on Nazism we’d still be at it today. The cold war against Communism went on for 40 odd years and communism persists. Now we have a war against terrorism, something that’s been around for centuries and will persist for centuries more. And we’re going to open up a second front against another ism? Permanent war, folks.
Right wing demagogues like isms because you can always accuse your opponent of being a “….ist” or aligning him/herself with the “…ists” and the definition of a “…ist” is just whatever you happen to be against this week. Best of all, no thinking is required; just trot out the old rhetoric and change the ism and it still works just fine. “If you oppose the war in Viet – excuse me, Iraq, you must like the commie –er, terrorists, and why don’t you just pack up and go to the soviet, uh, Afghanistan?”
The only ism ever killed off for good was Zoroastrianism. I thought McCarthyism was dead before 2001 but I was wrong.
No one loves the idea of permanent war more than a fascist. Or a defense contractor, take your pick.
Innit spelled “Ilse”?
Or did someone rip it off?

I thought they were the same thing….
“The only ism ever killed off for good was Zoroastrianism.” They just changed their name to Parsis. Freddie Mercury was a Zoroastrian.
Actually, without the Zoroastrians, it can be( and has been)argued, we wouldn’t have all of this apocalyptic end of the world, Messianic, heaven and hell bullshit various and sundry religious loons are so terribly fond of.
Is Savage Weiner talking about Lezbollah?
What about Islamic JiHadMeAtHello?
I can’t keep up with all these different “Al-Qaida types”, I really can’t.
Don’t you mean “Al Gayda”?
Freddie Mercury, huh?
“Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for meeeeeee, for MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…”
[guitar solo]
Guess it makes sense.
The only ism ever killed off for good was Zoroastrianism.
Uh, there still are Zoroastrians. I believe they’re pretty well persecuted in Iran, actually.
Lesbian fascism? Man, in the extremely unlikely event that I ever end up directing porno, I totally have a plotline for my first feature.
