Savage on the link between "the homosexualization of the media" and our descent "to a level below that of the apes"

On the January 2 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, host Michael Savage declared that the "homosexual dance of death" and the "homosexualization of the West" are the "seminal issue[s] of our time," and later added that the "homosexual mafia" is responsible for "control[ing] virtually everything that you read, everything that you see, everything that you hear, [and] everything that you wear."

As Media Matters for America has noted (here, here, and here), Savage has repeatedly referred to gays as part of the "the homosexual mafia," and even compared gays to "drug addicts."

Savage began his remarks on the topic by noting remarks by Pope Benedict XVI, who said that by "relativiz[ing] marriage" through same-sex unions, "man, in seeking to emancipate himself from his body [from the 'biological sphere'], ends up by destroying himself," adding, "Against those who say that 'the Church should not involve herself in these matters,' we can only respond: does man not concern us too?" This was quoted in a December 30 article by the right-wing news website WorldNetDaily, which purported to interpret the pope's comments as meaning that "homosexuals end up destroying themselves so the Church has a duty to speak out on moral issues that affect the very spiritual and physical lives of man." Savage quoted the WorldNetDaily paraphrase rather than the pope's own language and said: "If you have a problem with what I'm reading to you, why don't you send it to the Vatican, not to me." Savage also referred to "homosexual marriage" as an "abomination" and a "death service."

Savage concluded by saying: "I'll let you figure out how we have descended to a level below that of the apes, lower than the chimpanzee, my friend -- all as a result of the demons who rule the media, and have ruled the media to the point of extinction."

From the January 2 edition of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: The pope said last week that homosexuals are destroying themselves. And I want to read to you what the pope said, and if you have a problem with what I'm reading to you, why don't you send it to the Vatican, not to me. Pope Benedict XVI said homosexuals end up destroying themselves, so the church has a duty to speak out on moral issues that affect the very spiritual and physical lives of man.

Now, most Americans know this, which is why any time they're allowed to vote against homosexual marriage, which they know to be an abomination and a death service, not a life-giving service, they say "no" to the death service called homosexual marriage. Now, he didn't write that; I did.

[...]

SAVAGE: God bless Pope Benedict XVI for speaking out on the seminal issue of our time, which is the homosexual dance of death, and the homosexualization of the West. There is a direct correlation between the homosexualization of the media, the homosexual mafia that controls virtually everything that you read, everything that you see, everything that you hear, everything that you wear, and the behavior of our boys and girls and the fact that they will not have children, and they simply want to party until 3 a.m., and spend their money on designer items so they look good, and they have good abs, and good butts, and good lats, and good delts. After all, isn't a good ab better than a good son? Isn't a good butt better than a good daughter? I'll let you figure out how we have descended to a level below that of the apes, lower than the chimpanzee, my friend -- all a result of the demons who rule the media, and have ruled the media to the point of extinction.
