Michael Savage: Military Veterans With PTSD Are ‘Weak,’ ‘A Bunch Of Losers’

The Republicans support the military and the Democrats don’t? Right? That’s the BS the right has been feeding us for decades. Well, here’s radio host Michael Savage to show you exactly how deep that support goes.

On his radio show last week, Savage went after military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, a condition that plagues up to 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, 12 percent of Gulf War vets, and 15-30 percent of Vietnam War vets.

“I am so sick and tired with everyone with their complaints about PTSD, depression,” said Savage, who has never served a day in the military. “Everyone wants their hand held and a check, a government check. What, are you the only generation that has PTSD? The only generation that’s depressed?”

No, but we are the first generation to realize the problem and at least attempt to tackle an incredibly unfortunate situation. There’s more veterans committing suicide than dying in combat in the Middle East, you soulless swine.

He wasn’t done.

“If the whole nation is told, ‘boo-hoo-hoo, come and get a medication and get treatment, talk about mental illness,’ you know what you wind up with?” Savage asked. “You wind up with Obama in the White House and lawyers in every phase of government, that’s what you wind up with. It’s a weak, sick nation. A weak, sick, broken nation.”

Yeah, let’s be more like Michael Savage, who is clearly a stable, reasonable, and empathetic human being. Never has the term “human being” been used so loosely.

He went on to call veterans with PTSD a “bunch of losers” and actually did say they need to be more like him.

“You need men like me to save this country,” said Jack Bauer Michael Savage. “You need men to stand up and say stop crying like a baby over everything… Men are so weak and so narcissistic… no wonder ISIS can defeat our military.”

Can you really call other men narcissistic while claiming they should all be more like you?

By the way, you know what would happen if all men were like Michael Savage? A Christian version of this:

    Well, all I have to say is that I don’t condone violence, but this guy is basically beating a sack full of angry cats with these comments and one of these days he’s going to piss off the wrong person with this garbage….

    As the wife of a soldier with PDSD, I am seriously offended. What a jerk? There is nothing weak about the man I know and love. There is a man is a proud veteran and a is a proud American. Savage is a useless piece of work. ‘Nuff said.
