Ellis Washington sends Michael Savage another act of literary fellatio -- Washington is Savage's "authorized biographer," after all -- in his Oct. 7 WorldNetDaily column, a mishmash of allusions and attacks based around the title of one of Savage's book, "Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder."
Washington brings up Einstein and Galileo, noting that they "were intellectual giants who dwelt among the legions of mental midgets of their day, yet they ignored the cacophony of lesser men with duplicitous agendas and fulfilled the transcendent calling of their singular genius" and suggesting that Savage belongs in that pantheon. (Washington has already likened Savage to both Jesus and Prometheus.)
Washington goes on to beat us up with his brain byname-checking as many deep thinkers as he can, all in the guise of an attack on you-know-who:
The Greeks have Socrates, Plato and Aristotle; the Italians have Michelangelo and Pavarotti; the Jews have Moses and Einstein; the Germans have Beethoven and Liebnitz; the Danes the Vikings; the Dutch Spinoza, Rembrandt and Van Gogh; the French have Napoleon and Montesquieu: the English have Richard the Lionhearted and Winston Churchill – but who does Black America have? Double zeros … Oprah and Obama. Why? Because liberalism is a mental disorder.
Washington also sneaks in a slobbering endorsement of the book whose central concept he stole for this column:
All people of rational intelligence, despite your political ideology, must agree with the premise of Michael's 2005 book, "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder," for it is thoroughly based on reason, logic, morality and truth – in contrasts to every aspect of liberalism – from abortion to separation of church and state, from the IRS, NEA, SEC, ACORN, Federal Reserve, to lawyers for dogs, pigs and rats, welfare for freeloaders, activist judges gone wild, the Stalinist-controlled media who refuse to accurately report about our fascist president, etc.
Only Washington could possibly believe that Savage's vicious insults are "thoroughly based on reason, logic, morality and truth."
