Dan Savage: bully

They used to arrest middle-aged perverts who get their jollies from talking dirty to children. Today, they get a television show, a nationally syndicated column, a lecture circuit and multiple visits to the Obama White House.

You know: "Forward."

The irony is palpable. Dan Savage, sex columnist and founder of the LGBT anti-bullying "It Gets Better" campaign, has been outed. Not as a homosexual. He's out and proud in that regard. In fact, Savage pushes his "anything goes" brand of sexual anarchy on kids worldwide. MTV has even given the sex-obsessed radical his own show, "Savage U" — a moral-relativist platform from which to corrupt the kiddos.

Creepy stuff.

No, Savage has finally managed to publicly discredit himself as the anti-Christian bigot and bully he's always been. Never again will this guy be taken seriously as an anti-bullying crusader.

Savage lectures teens in high schools and colleges around the country on the benefits of "non-monogamy," the occasional "three-way" tryst and any other disease-spreading sexual impulse that might cross their impressionable, hormone-charged young minds (and many they can't yet imagine).

Well, recently, rather than just shocking his teenaged audience with vulgar, sophomoric psychobabble as usual, Savage apparently thought it'd be fun to bully the kids with whom he disagreed.

While addressing a crowd of hundreds of high schoolers at the National High School Journalism Convention, Savage launched into an unhinged anti-Christian diatribe. He advised the teens to "ignore the bulls--t in the Bible" about sexual morality. "We ignore bulls--t in the Bible about all sorts of things," he barked.

He then walked through a list of the same tired left-wing talking points about the Bible — long ago discredited — covering shellfish, virginity, etc. "The Bible is a radically pro-slavery document," he said (anti-Christian trash we've come to expect from the secular left).

But when a hundred or more kids got up and began to walk out on Savage's anti-Christian rant, the 47-year-old tough guy turned his hostility toward them. "It's funny to someone who is on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible how pansya — ed people react when you push back," he mocked. Some of the young girls were seen leaving in tears.

"It took a real dark, hostile turn, certainly, as I saw it," teacher Rick Tuttle told CNN. "It became very hostile toward Christianity, to the point that many students did walk out, including some of my students.

"They felt that they were attacked ... a very pointed, direct attack on one particular group of students. It's amazing that we go to an anti-bullying speech and one group of students is picked on in particular, with harsh, profane language."

But the only thing surprising is that anyone is surprised. Dan Savage is known in Christian circles as "the gay Fred Phelps." Phelps, of course, is the similarly cartoonish Westboro Baptist "preacher" who gained notoriety by protesting military funerals with his incestuous brood of pseudo-Christian haters. Savage is Phelps' photo negative. Whereas Phelps' hateful mantra is "God hates fags," Savage's central message is "I hate God and anyone who loves Him."

Savage's primary claim to fame is that he formed the website "Santorum.com," to create a "Google bomb" that would smear the good name of former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum. On the site he redefined the senator's last name, Santorum, using language so vile and repulsive that I won't repeat it. When Christian advocate and Americans for Truth founder Peter LaBarbera asked Savage to take down the website, Savage responded, "I'm asking Peter LaBarbera to go f--k himself."

Savage also once bragged that he licked the doorknobs at former Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer's campaign office in hopes of giving Mr. Bauer the flu.

Savage told the Daily Pennsylvanian in 2006 that Carl Romanelli, a U.S. senate candidate he didn't like, "should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there's nothing left but the rope." In the same interview, he opined: "Mr. Romanelli should go f--k himself." He also once said on HBO that he "wished all Republicans were f--king dead."

Yep, this deviant troglodyte is the face of the left's anti-bullying efforts. I've often said that those wonderfully "tolerant" liberals — the self-styled opponents of "hate" and "bigotry" — are the most intolerant, hateful bigots among us.

Thanks for proving my point, Dan.
