Dept. of Weinerschnitzel: radio host banned from the U.K.

weiner.gifLocal comedian Michael Weiner, who broadcasts nationally as a right-wing foamer called “Michael Savage,” has been banned from the U.K. for promoting hate speech. The Chronicle’s Carla Marinucci has an exclusive interview with the radio talker and former Allen Ginsburg groupie, whose previous utterances have included an allegation that autistic children are simply badly behaved kids who need more parental discipline.

It’s not just his radio broadcasts that are banned. Weiner himself is banned from entering the U.K.

Dept. of Weinershnitzel: GOP congressman takes on hate talker

weiner.gifKudos to local journalist Brad Kava for publishing this first on the website: Freshman GOP congressman Joseph Cao — who became the first-ever Vietnamese-American elected to Congress when he defeated corrupt Democratic Rep. William Jefferson in the Louisiana 2d district — has condemned the anti-immigrant comments of San Francisco radio talker Michael Weiner.

Weiner, the former Alan Ginsburg groupie whose “Michael Savage” broadcasts are ranked third nationally among right-wing talk shows, is well known for inflammatory statements about immigrants, the disabled, gays and other minorities. Cao called his statements in a 2007 program “repulsive” and added, “I hope that the GOP will not tolerate those kinds of views and will not take those positions.”

Dept. of Weinershnitzel: SFPD’s sensitivity training is silly

weiner.gifLocal comedian Michael Weiner, who broadcasts nationally as a right-wing foamer called “Michael Savage,” is back at the well, making fun of local customs for the amusement of the auslanders. Now it’s the standard sensitivity training classes for police detectives, classes designed to teach the sherlocks about our more colorful residents. According to Weiner:

The San Francisco Police Department is forcing detectives to undergo brainwashing by a transgendered detective… I would not let myself be brainwashed by this freak.

This sad little man, who is paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to spew this shit over the radio, loves that kind of talk, because his demented listeners love it even more. All I can say is, I hope he spends some of his huge salary locally, because that’s all the benefit we’ll ever get out of the fact that he actually works here.

Local demagogue finds new way to offend people

Bad week for Weiner

weiner.gifIt’s been a bad week for comedian Michael Weiner, whose national broadcasts as “Michael Savage” from a San Francisco studio have dirtied the airwaves for several years. First his network was forced to clarify and backtrack on his July 16 comments that children with autism are likely just “brats” who should be told to “act like a man” and “told to cut the act out.”

Protests against Weiner continued Sunday with a demonstration in front of San Francisco station KNEW, where he records his nationally syndicated program.

Local radio demagogue finds new way to offend people

weiner.gifComedian Michael Weiner, who broadcasts nationally as the right-wing radio talk show foamer Michael Savage, has added parents of autistic children to the long list of people he has insulted, flamed and defamed in his long career. The former Alan Ginsburg groupie said Monday he was trying to “boldly awaken” parents who refrain from disciplining their autistic children. This week he refused to bow to the demands for an apology, though he admitted his assertion that 99 percent of autism cases were misdiagnosed was “hyperbole.” He has already lost one sponsor over the incident.

Weiner’s home base is local station KNEW at 910 AM.
