Savage on SF Police Dept. transgender sensitivity training: "brainwash[ing]" by a "freak," "sort of like toilet training for adults"

››› ››› LAURYN BRUCK

Michael Savage declared that a sensitivity training program for San Francisco police detectives on transgender issues is "sort of like toilet training for adults," and described the program as a "class ... to teach normal men how to have sensitivity to a psychopathic sex-change operative who should be in a mental hospital."

Radio host Michael Savage continued his attacks on the transgender community during the January 7 broadcast of The Savage Nation, declaring that a sensitivity training program for San Francisco police detectives on transgender issues is "sort of like toilet training for adults" and describing the program as a "class ... to teach normal men how to have sensitivity to a psychopathic sex-change operative who should be in a mental hospital." Savage also published a "memorandum" about the sensitivity training program -- which he claimed was "sent to me anonymously by ... someone in the [San Francisco] police department" -- on his website under the headline: "Exclusive: SFPD forcing detectives to undergo brainwashing by transgendered dick."

On The Savage Nation, Savage added:

The San Francisco Police Department is forcing detectives to undergo brainwashing by a transgendered detective.

[...]

Now, we have a homicide epidemic in San Francisco; we have a gang problem in San Francisco; we have a bum problem in San Francisco; we have a mayor problem in San Francisco; we have a supervisor problem in San Francisco. It's a city out of control. We have government anarchy, and these psychotic SOBs are wasting detectives' time in sensitivity training for a transgendered lieutenant.

Later, regarding his own experience with diversity training, Savage also stated:

If I were the inspectors being forced to do this, I would, as a group -- I would, as a group, refuse to go. I would not let myself be brainwashed by this freak. Now, I did this. When I worked at a local radio station, they forced the entire staff to take diversity training. I was the only one who challenged the freaks giving the diversity training. I fought them every step of the way. All the other big mouths, including ex-Marines and ex-this and ex-that, sat there quietly and said nothing. And I challenged them every step of the way and they never had diversity training again in that radio station. Never. And the police should do the same thing. The military should do this. It's enough with the freaks ruling these places.

As Media Matters for America has documented, Savage previously described a transgender murder victim as a "psychopath" and a "freak" who "should have been in a back ward in a straitjacket for years, howling on major medication." Savage also blamed sexual reassignment surgery for the Columbine massacre, stating that "the capital of [sexual reassignment surgery] is somewhere in Colorado, near Columbine. ...You wonder why the kids shoot each other there with black raincoats."

From the January 7 broadcast of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: The San Francisco Police Department is forcing detectives to undergo brainwashing by a transgendered detective. Now, this transgendered detective did not pass the lieutenants' exam, she failed it. He failed it -- it's a she-to-he detective -- failed the lieutenants' exam, was promoted anyway, and now they're forcing the other detectives to pay attention to sensitivity issues of transgendered detectives. If it gets any sicker than this, I'd like to know where.

This has ramifications for the rest of the nation, because this is total insanity. And you can see the memorandum sent to me anonymously by the -- someone in the police department, who I will not disclose, and it says: "Transgendered training for the investigations bureau. Lieutenant Stephen Thorne" -- that's a female-to-male detective -- "is facilitating transgendered community awareness training. Below are the dates, times, and locations of the training offered." Offered -- of course they have to go. "Please direct your lieutenants to have all members pick a date for training." Training: sort of like toilet training for adults, only, in this case, it's very serious business.

Now, we have a homicide epidemic in San Francisco; we have a gang problem in San Francisco; we have a bum problem in San Francisco; we have a mayor problem in San Francisco; we have a supervisor problem in San Francisco. It's a city out of control. We have government anarchy, and these psychotic SOBs are wasting detectives' time in sensitivity training for a transgendered lieutenant. "The signup lists are due in Room 400 by Monday, January 5, 2009, and we are to note that space is limited to 35 members per class." It's a class now to teach normal men how to have sensitivity to a psychopathic sex-change operative who should be in a mental hospital.

SAVAGE: Now, I've got to tell you something. If I were the inspectors being forced to do this, I would, as a group -- I would, as a group, refuse to go. I would not let myself be brainwashed by this freak. Now, I did this. When I worked at a local radio station, they forced the entire staff to take diversity training. I was the only one who challenged the freaks giving the diversity training. I fought them every step of the way. All the other big mouths, including ex-Marines and ex-this and ex-that, sat there quietly and said nothing. And I challenged them every step of the way, and they never had diversity training again in that radio station. Never. And the police should do the same thing. The military should do this. It's enough with the freaks ruling these places.

SAVAGE: Question number two -- which goes back to the first story: Should the police detectives in San Francisco refuse to accommodate this transgendered freak and the psychopath running the city, "Any-twosome" Newsom, and simply go on strike and not submit themselves to transgender training?

[...]

SAVAGE: Well, I think we can move on. I'm talking about the enforced transgendered training in the San Francisco police department. Apparently, no cops in San Francisco have the guts to call this show, which explains to you why we have a homicide epidemic in San Francisco and why they're willing to bend down and roll over for a transgendered freak show, imposed upon them by the sickest city administration in the history of this great city, and so I don't care about the topic. If you're willing to be -- shall I say, let me use the right word here since it's a family show -- turned into a capon by this transgendered administration, go ahead. What do I care? I did your work for you. I tried to show America how you and the SFPD are being abused by the so-called liberals, and you don't want to call this show on it? That's your problem, deal with it. Then roll over for a transgendered freak. I don't care. I don't care about Israel. I don't care about the police. I don't care about the Republicans. I really don't care about anything right now. Why should I care? So let's talk about something else.

[...]

CALLER: I can't believe what I just heard. Why don't the lieutenants association go on strike? I can't believe that.

SAVAGE: I just told you: because the SFPD has been caponized. They have fundamentally been turned into geldings. The city administration is such a terrorist organization in favor of homosexuals, transgender rights, whatever, that the police themselves are terrified to stand up and speak out against this outrage, this brainwashing.

[...]

SAVAGE: In San Francisco, which is suffering a drug epidemic, a gang epidemic, a homicide epidemic, a bum epidemic, they're forcing detectives in the San Francisco police department to be diversity-trained by a transgendered freak show, someone who failed the lieutenants' exam, according to what I am told, but was pushed forward in the dark of night by "Any-twosome" Newsom and his cronies, pushed over others who qualified on the exam, and made into a lieutenant, and now this transgendered freak is going to have the pleasure of telling normal detectives how biased they are, how illiberal they are, how mean they are, how cruel they are for not being more sensitive to transgendered individuals. Isn't America great? Isn't San Francisco great that they can devote so much time to such an important topic?
