On his radio program yesterday, after wondering if President Obama will begin executing his opponents, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage promoted his new book, “Government Zero: The Inside Story of the Progressive/Islamic Takeover,” along with a previous book that he wrote about his dog, Teddy.
As it turns out, the two subjects are related, as Savage claims that the “progressive/Islamic takeover” under Obama will lead to a Sharia law ban on dogs. (According to Omar Sacirbey, “while many Muslims believe scripture approves canine companions, many also believe scripture discourages Muslims from keeping dogs in their homes.”)
“Even when the communists run the country, I guess people are going to still love their dogs, unless they ban dogs,” Savage said. “You never know with the Islamism creeping into the country, there is only one religion that hates dogs. That’s an embarrassing fact, that’s an inconvenient truth. There’s only one group of people who hate dogs and he’s bringing in 100,000 of them a month.”
This led Savage to rail against Obama for making remarks supporting LGBT rights during his recent visit to Kenya: “Now he’s in Kenya lecturing his homeland about gay rights. This is beyond belief, the audacity and insanity. This guy, we have a word for it in the street that I can’t use because it’s not a family-friendly word. This guy is a crazy man.”
Savage added that the president’s comments on LGBT issues reminded him of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.
Later in the program, Savage said that Obama is sounding exactly like Hitler except for his tone, leading Savage to offer his own bizarre impression of a Hitler/Obama hybrid.
“If he screamed it like Hitler, you’d say he’s a bad man, but he speaks with a forked tongue so smoothly,” he said.
Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” conservative talk radio host Michael Savage said that he recently spoke with a friend who worried that the U.S. is “going to wind up with guillotines, hanging us all, anyone they don’t like.”
Savage explained, sarcastically, that such a thing would never happen…just as it would never happen that an “imposter” president would “do a deal with a terrorist state like Iran giving them a path to a nuclear bomb.”
“Obama is a criminal president,” he continued. “Obama has committed one crime against this nation after another and he continues to get away with it.”
On Thursday, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage couldn’t contain his glee at the prospect of Donald Trump actually winning the presidential election. Savage once again showered the GOP frontrunner with praise, this time for making a speech criticizing immigration in the Texas border town of Laredo.
When a listener called in to argue that Trump wouldn't be able to work with other policymakers, Savage responded that Trump should simply rule by decree:
We have Obama, who has dug his heels in and is ruling by fiat. He’s not ruling with the consent of the opposition party. We have a de facto dictatorship right now, we need a de facto dictatorship from the other side of the aisle for 50 years to straighten out the mess that was created from Bill Clinton going forward. I disagree with you. If what we have devolved to in this nation is no longer a nation of checks and balances and no longer a nation of ruling by consensus but ruling by decree, then I would say then Trump is even more important than ever because let him rule by decree and let him straighten the country out and let him start with a fence on the Mexican border. He can probably order that fence built by the illegals themselves.
Later in the program, Savage described Trump as the bold white leader that Americans have been praying for all this time.
“We’ve finally seen a white man with you know what,” Savage said. “Finally a white man stood up with you know what and said ‘go to hell’ to his enemies and if you don’t like it go take a walk. America’s been waiting for him, they’ve been praying for him.”
RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
Have Michigan and Seattle, Washington, embraced Sharia law? Did the Supreme Court legalize pedophilia and bestiality? Is Hillary Clinton a Muslim Brotherhood spy? All of these questions are ridiculous, but not so off-base that conservative pundits aren’t taking them seriously.
5) Seattle Embraces Sharia
The mayor of Seattle recently charged a committee with finding ways to improve the city’s rate of homeownership. Among the proposals the city came up was a recommendation to make it easier for Muslim residents who, for religious reasons, cannot pay interest on loans, to purchase homes through a structured payment plan.
Religious Right leaders have long been warning that parts of Michigan arefallingtoSharialaw, warnings that may have played a role in one Michigan’s town decision to reject the establishment of a summer camp because the project’s organizer is a Muslim.
As the Huffington Post reported, several residents complained to the local planning commission that the summer camp, which would not have any religious affiliation, could be used as a “training camp” for terrorists.
“I have heard on the news that in every state in the United States we have an ISIS group,” one resident said, while another wondered if there was “anything written on paper that says this isn’t going to be turned into a terrorist training facility.” One official told the Huffington Post that “the whole state of Michigan should be worried” since there are “15 organizations” with possible terrorist ties that are trying to open training camps.
The commission ultimately voted to deny a permit to build the summer camp.
3) Gay Marriage Devastation
The ripple effects of the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality continue, at least in the reality-free world of the right-wing media.
Televangelist Pat Robertson said that the court’s ruling paves the way for the legalization of pedophilia, polygamy and “love affairs between men and animals,” while Janet Porter said that very soon Christians will be “carted off to jail” as a result of the Obergefell decision.
But pseudo-historian David Barton’s sharp legal analysis truly demonstrated how out of touch the conservative movement really is on the issue, as he claimed that the court effectively legalized pedophilia with the help of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which he said became law in 2006.
The government’s supposed Islamist ties, Savage predicted, may soon pave the way for a “civil war,” which he said would be “overdue” and “the only thing that could save us.”
Savage also told the “criminal in the White House” that he would personally lead an armed rebellion if anyone ever calls for slavery reparations: “I would lead a reparations rebellion in this country. No matter what my age would be, if I had the strength from God, I would lead a reparations rebellion against the government and it would be an armed rebellion. I would lead an armed rebellion against the government if they try to push that one down my throat after ripping off my life with affirmative action and welfare, I’m sick of it!”
Despite predictions that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s incendiary comments on immigrants and POWs, among others, would sink his presidential campaign, Trump has maintained his lead in polls and is receiving plenty of backup from his allies at Fox News and in conservative talk radio.
Fox’s resident “culture war” reporter and super-patriot Todd Starnes has also been defendingTrump, even after the presidential candidate said of POWs like John McCain: “I like people who weren't captured.”
Yesterday on the Family Research Council's “Washington Watch” program, Starnes told FRC President Tony Perkins that Trump is a voice for the voiceless: “The American people see all of this and they see the illegals coming into our country, they see the massive surge from Islamic countries, immigrants coming here and towns and communities being overwhelmed, and they don’t feel like anyone is hearing their voice, except for one person, Donald Trump.”
Michael Savage, the right-wing talk show host who credited his own book with shaping Trump’s views on immigration, praised Trump this week as “the leader of the entire conservative movement in America and maybe the world.”
“He’s the leader of the Western world,” Savage said. “Donald Trump has moved up to being the leader of the whole Western world right now with his love for America, love for borders, language, culture, family, military, he’s the only one articulating those views.”
Conservative talk show host Michael Savage reacted to the shooting of military service members in Chattanooga last week by railing against the media and the government for supposedly trying to cover up any mention of the shooter’s religion.
Savage said on his program Friday that Americans will be driven to civil war if the media try to portray terrorist attacks as anything other than Islamic terrorism, a war he thinks is needed to save the country.
“I don’t know what it’s going to take for this country to change — I do know what it’s going to take, it’s going to take the big one. It’s going to take the big one and mark my words if, God forbid, the big one comes, like the dirty bomb or something horrible like that, you’re going to wait and see what the media says, ‘We provoked it, we shouldn’t have been in Afghanistan, we’re not sensitive to Muslims, what did we do to offend them, we have to reach out,’ that’s the end of the road, there’ll be a civil war,” Savage said. “And by the way, it’ll be overdue. That’s the only thing that could save us.”
He added that while he hopes there isn’t a war, America’s enemies have already “infiltrated” the government, which is now pushing the people to the breaking point since it is “at war with us by enabling the enemies of our very survival.”
Last week, Michael Savage voiced his outrage over the Iranian nuclear agreement, which he connected to the recent killing of military service members in Chattanooga. Since the deal with Iran was signed on July 14 and the shooting occurred on July 16, Savage speculated during “a conspiracy moment” that the attack may have been designed to suppress media coverage of the alleged flaws with the deal.
“A day after the world comes to understand Obama sold the West down the river with his sellout to Iran, giving them the right to develop a nuclear weapon, a day later, a Kuwaiti, an American citizen, opens fire on a Marine base,” Savage said.
He then suggested that the shooter may have been a government pawn who was unleashed to attack that day: “So where’s the conspiracy? I don’t know. I don’t know, it’s a coincidence, isn’t it? Because you forgot Iran already, it’s off the pages. So many people think they actually have a lot of these nuts under control, they’re under surveillance, they’re watching them, and they kind of give them a little trigger-job, along the lines of ‘Manchurian Candidate,’ something loose like that.”
After all, Savage explained, “if it’s the opposite of what Obama said, then ‘hooey’ must be the truth.”
Later in the broadcast, Savage attacked ESPN for giving Caitlyn Jenner its Arthur Ashe Courage Award, wondering when the country will rise up against such cultural degradation: “This creature is now made into a hero, what does that do to our children’s minds? How far can we go in a nation? How low can we sink as a society? How much lower can we go as a society, how much lower? The answer is when you have a fish that is rotting from the head down, there is no bottom to how low this country can go and it will get much, much lower. I don’t know what it’s going to take but something is going to provoke civil unrest as sure as I’m sitting here.”
Conservative talk radio host Michael Savage wondered on his program last week whether President Obama will implement reparations for slavery in his last year in office, pledging to wage an armed rebellion against the nonexistent plan.
“I would fight to my death before I pay one dime in reparations and I would go to jail before I would pay one cent in reparations,” Savage said. “That would be the last straw for me, if they ever try to pull that one off, I would lead a reparations rebellion in this country. No matter what my age would be, if I had the strength from God, I would lead a reparations rebellion against the government and it would be an armed rebellion.”
Savage continued: “I would lead an armed rebellion against the government if they try to push that one down my throat after ripping off my life with affirmative action and welfare, I’m sick of it! And this gangster keeps getting away with it, this criminal in the White House, day in and day out, one lie after another, imperious, arrogant, hostile, aimed only at the white middle class. Look at his policies and tell me who he’s going after. Open your eyes, you idiots!”
“I bet more boys will become girls than vice versa and eventually we could become a whole country of girls and then girls will finally get equal pay,” Savage said. “That could be the whole reason behind it. It’s a ‘compassionate’ thing that the maniacs in Oregon are doing, because if they can eliminate males and the nation is all girls in let’s say 50 years, than everything will be perfect, won’t it? Because as you all know, women are better than men, minorities are better than whites. Isn’t that the liberal mantra? All minorities are better than whites. All girls are better than men.”
On Tuesday, right-wing radio host Michael Savage found some “good news” in the Army’s decision to cut 40,000 troops. Savage said that the troops “will make for a very nice militia should the government try to use the sorority’s troops against the population. There are a lot of guys trained in a lot of things who are going to be released back into the population who can certainly form an active opposition to a fascistic government should it ever emerge in this country.” (Savage regularly refers to President Obama’s female advisers as “the sorority”).
He went on to say that the appearance of such a government is quite “possible under this goofball madman in the outhouse.”
In fact, it was just last week that Savage claimed that Obama and Pope Francis are both players in “the emergence of a worldwide Marxist dictatorship in the United States and the World,” alleging that the two men were picked for their positions by secretive forces.
Right-wing radio host Michael Savage joined other conservative pundits on Tuesday in blaming San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy for the murder of a woman by an undocumented immigrant, which he then used to warn of impending government violence against Christians and veterans.
He predicted that once President Obama incites a civil war by overloading the nation’s welfare system, liberals will employ “illegal alien gangs” as their “army.”
“It’s all well and good, the welfare state, until you can’t afford it anymore,” Savage said. “And guess what happens then? The country collapses. And guess what happens then? Exactly what the government wants, which is civil war and insurrection. And guess what happens then? There’s martial law and autocratic control. And guess what happens then? There are internment camps.”
He said that while the government will only “come for the returning war veterans” and “come for the Christians,” liberals will feel protected with the knowledge that they “have the army of the night behind you, and who is the army of the night? It’s the illegal alien gangs that you have behind you, it’s those who burned the city to the ground in Baltimore behind you, that’s who you have, those are your armies, you think we don’t know it? We understand your entire plan, we understand why you feel protected, we understand why you let a murder like this go unindicted, we understand all of this.”
Savage also railed against gays and lesbians, along with Democratic officials, linking them to murder.
“This is what liberalism brings you,” Savage said. “Insanity and murder and death and disease.”
Last week on “The Savage Nation,” Michael Savage compared President Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the German pilot who deliberately crashed a Germanwings flight in France, killing all 150 people on board.
Savage lashed out at liberals who don’t realize that Obama is a “drunk psychopathic liberal from Hell” who is “driving the plane down into a mountain as fast as you can,” before lamenting that “a man who hates the police and hates the military is commander-in-chief.”
“This man is out to destroy us,” Savage continued, arguing that Obama’s “light dictatorship” is “almost demonic.” Savage added: “It will take an act of God to stop this man from destroying us entirely…. Only an act of God can stop Obama.”
Savage wasn’t done just yet, railing against Obama as a “mad man” who is “a force of pure evil against those of us who are traditionalists, constitutionalists, however you want to put it, he is pure evil, he is the antithesis of everything American.”
Nonetheless, Savage retains hope that divine power will save America and “counter what he is doing to this country.”
Michael Savage lit into the Supreme Court over its ruling striking down state bans on same-sex marriage, warning his listeners on Monday that gay rights advocates are planning to prosecute pastors who refuse to officiate gay couples’ weddings.
Savage pointed to a 2014 story out of Idaho where two pastors at a for-profit chapel claimed they were being threatened with jail time for breaking a local nondiscrimination ordinance. As it turned out, the chapel was exempt from the ordinance because it was a religious entity. “We’re back in the Soviet Union now,” Savage declared.
He also linked his false claim about pastors going to prison with last week’s ISIS massacre of European vacationers in Tunisia: “Gays will cheer. As they start throwing pastors in prison, you’ll see who’ll cheer them. Next we’ll get the arena and the lions, get the arena and the lions and bring them in from Tunisia.”
“I feel like I’m being punched left and right from the Supreme Court today, I’ve never saw anything like this in my life,” Savage said, before praising Mike Huckabee’s call to defy the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling.
In would be an understatement to say that Michael Savage is no fan of Pope Francis. The right-wing radio host continued his rantings against the pope on Tuesday, telling his listeners that Francis is nothing more than “a naked Marxist posing as a pope.”
“This faker pope is coming to America to talk not to you in the pews, but to prisoners, transgendered [sic] and homeless,” Savage shouted. “You tell me there’s not a worldwide Marxist revolution occurring right under your noses. Go ahead, tell me that, make my day. And if you think it ends well, you’re wrong. Remember how many died under Communism. A hundred million.”
On Monday, Savage attacked his other least favorite communist: President Obama.
Savage accused Obama of working with the media and the “insane left” to squelch the freedom of speech of conservatives like Donald Trump.
“Obama’s [been] engaged in a civil war from the day he began,” Savage said, claiming that “this man is trying to burn the country down.”
On Friday’s episode of “The Savage Nation,” far-right radio host Michael Savage warned listeners that there are “tens of millions of people who are ready to snap” just like Dylann Roof did in Charleston, South Carolina, as a result of the Obama administration’s policies.
“There’s a lot of blame to go around,” Savage lamented about society’s supposed moral decay, which he blamed on liberal public schools and the separation of church and state. He called out President Obama for being a “phony, fundraising fraud” and Hillary Clinton for “defending illegals who are overrunning our institution.” He also pointed fingers at the American Medical Association “who dispense drugs like Kool Aid.”
Savage reserved his biggest critique for “the hatred being imposed upon this country by this criminal government, flooding American with criminals, rapists, murderers, thieves” through immigration. These conditions, he continued, are “affecting people and driving them crazy” and “affecting tens of millions of people who are ready to snap.”
The radio host’s rant is the latest installment of a series of controversial remarks about the shooting, including his suggestion that Roof may have been “a programmed killer set loose by the government.”
On Friday, right-wing radio host Michael Savage compared both President Obama and Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof to Charles Manson, claiming that both the president and the shooter are trying to create a race war in America.
“It’s the scenario that Charles Manson wanted, to start a race war, which he called Helter Skelter, which was committing these horrible murders in the Hollywood Hills and then blaming it on blacks and then there would be a murderous rampage against blacks by frightened whites,” Savage said. “Well, now it’s the reverse and we’re all fearing a murderous rampage against whites by blacks to provoke an internecine war of near extermination. That is what we could have happen here in this country right now.”
Savage said that like Roof, Obama is trying to “stir the people up” and foment racial violence. While debating with a caller, Savage said that Obama is “a diehard, divisive man who has wrecked the country with his Helter Skelter, he may as well be Charles Manson.”
As Savage explained, public schools and secular government are also to blame for the attack because Roof was “raised on the liberal credo, the credo of Obama and Hillary Clinton, which is ‘do what you feel like doing,’ that there is no Christianity, ‘if it feels good, do it, want to engage in sex, go ahead, want to be a woman while you’re a man, go ahead, you want to use drugs, go ahead, you don’t feel good, pop a pill, you don’t feel good, go to the crackpot with a stethoscope and he’ll give you some drugs.”
“You see, all Christian values have been driven out of the schools and the culture by the liberals, they’ve been replaced by a vacuum, do as you please and do whatever you want,” he said.
“I read I shouldn’t be on the same stage with some governor who is a nothing or senator who is a nothing,” Trump said. “I’m not saying that a senator is nothing or a governor, I’m saying that some of these people shouldn’t be on the stage.”
Boasting of his business skills and reality TV success, Trump said that his fellow candidates aren’t even worthy of shining his shoes: “You go to the best college and you do great and all of the sudden you’re not supposed to be on a stage and you have other people that frankly can’t shine your shoes and it’s okay for them to be on it.”
Responding to criticism from the National Review, Trump said that William F. Buckley, the publication’s founder, “must be spinning in his grave, they have a bunch of lowlifes over there.”
WorldNetDaily spoke to right-wing radio host Michael Savage yesterday about the shooting in Charleston. Savage told the far-right outlet that he was just asking the question: Is the government behind the shooting?
Savage had this to say to WND immediately after his program ended: “How can we know? Was he a crazed racist? A programmed killer set loose by the government? Was it the suboxone, a known violence-inducing drug he was likely on courtesy of the AMA (American Medical Association)? Is his father a nut? All we know is that nine decent Christians were slaughtered like chickens in their own church – not in Iraq, but in the USA. And right away we saw Attorney General Janet Lynch on the pulpit, Obama decrying guns, while the band plays on, while his wife, daughters and mother-in-law enjoy shopping in Rome with Air Force One as their royal carriage.”
WND also quoted Rush Limbaugh’s claim that the media is trying to use the shooting to “advance their political agenda.”
“I know that the left and the drive-bys (media) are out now trying to hunt a tea party connection,” added Limbaugh. “You know that’s happening. You know they’re turning over every rock, they’re doing everything they can to try to find a way to link this in a way that would advance their political agenda. And all I’m saying is we’re not gonna do that here in any way, shape, manner, or form. We’re just gonna wait ’til whatever there is to be learned about this. His picture – he looks like a kid. So I’m just gonna wait. We all here at the EIB Network are going to wait.”
Yesterday on “The Savage Nation,” right-wing radio host Michael Savage was outraged about a school program in the Italian city of Trieste called the “Game of Respect,” which is meant to break down gender stereotypes.
Somehow, Savage managed to link the program to ISIS.
“The perverts have taken over every aspect of every Western culture, which, by the way, is why ISIS is rising around the world,” Savage said. “Make no mistake about it, ISIS is a counterpoint to these psychotics. You don’t understand that, I do. I have a global perspective, I have a mystical perspective, I have a godly perspective and I am telling you there is a reason ISIS is making gains, it’s because of the vermin who have penetrated our culture and destroyed it from within.”
Savage claimed that the “cultural and societal degradation” is also the fault of President Obama, whom he said is “dumping so many Muslims in all-white Christian communities” in order to “bust up the Christian communities.”
“The man is the Devil,” Savage continued. “Obama and his minions are the Devil themselves. They are not out to remake America but to destroy America. I stand by those words, I will not back down and someone on the Republican ticket has to stand up and show a pair of you-know-what and say something about this cultural degradation.”
The only Republican politician taking such a brave stance, he added, is Donald Trump.
