Campos Goes After Michael Savage, Obama
AndyJo discovered a great Paul Campos piece in which he goes after radio talk show host Michael Savage for - ready? - suggesting that fat people be put in "work camps".
I'm not kidding. Neither was Savage.
In the course of what began as an attack on Hillary Clinton's support for universal health care, he vented his disgust toward "fat women," and claimed that nonthin Americans didn't deserve access to health care.
That a shameless demagogue like Savage advocates concentration camps for people with what he considers inappropriate bodies is bad enough (Savage's parents, it's worth noting in this context, were Jewish).
I really do wonder why fat people - particularly women - threaten Savage (and other folks) so. It seems to be common. "But if women get fat, the world will end!"
In addition, Campos calls out Senator Obama - remember, we owe him $1 trillion - for his comments:
The reality is that a significant portion of the anti-fat hysteria that has gripped the culture over the past decade is driven by a desire to find any plausible excuse for not doing what every other developed nation in the world does: provide basic health care for all citizens.
Great stuff as always. [Thanks, AndyJo!]
