The Savage Nation: Saving America from the Liberal Assault on Our Borders, Language and Culture by Michael Savage


Michael Savage attacks big government and liberal media bias. The son of immigrants, Savage shows how traditional American freedoms are being destroyed from the outside and undermined from within-not just our own government, but also from alien forces within our own society. Savage argues that if the price of liberty is eternal vigilance, then only a more “savage nation” will enjoy these liberties. Savage's high ratings and the rapid growth of his program prove he is in touch with the concerns of the average American.

Editorial Review

Michael Savage is the host of The Savage Nation, a radio program that airs on over 300 stations nationwide. A self-described victim of “truth-in-mouth syndrome,” he claims to be “the only man in the country saying it the way it really is.” His stated purpose for writing the book is to save a “homosexualized, feminized America” from a liberal assault that is “unraveling the very fabric of this great nation.” Declaring that “a minority of feminist zealots rule the culture,” he blames Democrats and liberals for everything from a general decline in morals in the United States to bringing the Taliban to power in Afghanistan. Although one chapter is entitled “Crimes of the Democrats” (with special attention paid to Al Gore), Savage is no Republican stooge–this “bipartisan basher” reserves plenty of venom for the GOP as well, particularly regarding immigration, one of his favorite subjects. Savage calls for a severe tightening of U.S. borders and vigilant racial profiling in order to combat terrorism and the spread of infectious diseases. He also rails against liberal media bias, big government, the lack of prayer in schools, rampant pornography, the UN, the ACLU, and a host of social ills that he believes were caused almost exclusively by hippies in the 1960s and the Clinton administration in the 1990s.

Like many talk-show personalities, Savage is confrontational, angry, entertaining, and prone to exaggeration, sometimes all at once. He can also be funny and sarcastic. But while he does offer some interesting observations and enough food for thought to make this slim volume worth a read, his book is essentially one long rant with precious little useful information to back up his often bombastic claims. His angry-man shtick may make for stimulating drive-time listening (and high ratings), but it doesn't make for a particularly convincing book. –Shawn Carkonen
