This Wednesday, conservative radio host Michael Savage launched his latest conspiracy, claiming that book stores like Barnes & Noble are suppressing the release of his new book “Government Zero” in a plot to quash his right wing convictions.
“The left is sabotaging Michael Savage’s new book,” he said, referring to photos a fan sent him of a Barnes & Noble store in California where his books allegedly are “on the floor.”
What’s next? I’ll tell you what’s next. The outright banning of books which offend the government. The burning of books which offend the government. Brownshirts going into book stores and seizing books and burning them in huge piles. And who will cheer it on? Why, all of your progressive friends would cheer the burning of books. You know who they are. You know what they want. First they came for the books but you didn’t raise your voice because you don’t read such books. And then they came for the conservatives and they rounded them up, but you didn’t say anything because you didn’t really like the conservatives, you thought they were all mean anyway. And then they came for you, and there was no one left to stand up and speak for you. History has a weird way of repeating itself and it starts in very small ways, very small, wee steps fascism takes, it does.
