Autism vs. Basketball Stars
What’s the main difference between Michael Savage and Don Imus?
Don Imus attacked Rutgers basketball players, who are perfectly capable of defending themselves.
Michael Savage attacked autistic people, who are people who are at a vast disadvantage for defending themselves.
Think Michael Savage will get fired like Don Imus did? I doubt it’s likely. Disabled people get a lot less funding than state university basketball teams – not to mention a lot less fans and a lot less attention.
I’d love to see some of the women’s basketball team at Rutgers step up publicly and say that Mr. Savage’s remarks are just as unacceptable as Imus’ remarks. But I’m not holding my breath on it.
