'Prophet' Michael Savage: One Month Left to Save America

Since the right wing has nothing to sell but fear and bigotry, they keep publishing the same book over and over again. The latest is Michael Savage’s Stop the Coming Civil War. The Worldnetdaily is selling it and promoting it, of course, and declares it “prophetic” while noting that Savage says we only have “one month left to save America.” In an interview, he mostly babbles:

Savage said the “worst part of the story” is that if Obama is allowed to continue, “this country doesn’t survive.”

He noted Vice President Joseph Biden’s statement at the John F. Kennedy Forum at Harvard last Thursday that the post-World War II order is “literally fraying at the seams.”

“What was he trying to say?” Savage asked. “Was he playing like he’s suddenly discovered what he’s done to the country? And now he’s triangulating his opposition to make believe he’s the savior?

Uh, no. He was saying what lots and lots of politicians from many countries and many political parties have said, that some of the institutions set up after WW2 are no longer relevant in today’s world.

Savage, the author of six New York Times bestsellers, said he had no financial or personal need to write another book. His aim, he said, is to warn the nation that the mid-term election one month from now is the only realistic opportunity to stop Obama.

“After 29 books, I don’t need another bestseller,” he told WND. “What I need is the last chance to change the course of human events. I am praying that the people awaken before the election in November.”

Ah yes, the self-declared savior sent to awaken the nation. Michael Savage isn’t going to change the course of human events, he’s just going to keep making money by selling fear, bigotry and demagoguery to his ignorant and deluded followers.

    I took a peek at a nephew’s Facebook page and he declares that Michael Savage is one of his heroes. Sigh. The craziness is in now my own family. The end does in indeed draw nigh.

    To be fair, they’re also spiteful.

    But he’ll take it … and the money it brings in.

    Don’t worry Michael, we’ll do our part. I absolutely promise you than neither I nor any of my friends will vote for Obama in the mid-terms.

    So if we don’t do what he says in a month bad things will happen and he’ll make us do what he says. It sounds more like a threat to me.

    Robert Foster,

    Yeah, I see it in my own family too. My sweet youngest daughter who was raised to care about her gay friends, her friends from several different cultures, women’s rights, the environment, etc. has been completely changed by her right wing husband. I don’t even believe the things that I hear coming out of her mouth lately. One of her sisters has completely stopped communicating with her, and I find that I have to cringe and stay quiet just so that I can stay in touch with my little grandson.

    I worry that the husband will be like his own father and will someday treat her very badly. I try to keep up some form of communication in case that happens, and in case some day my grandson comes looking for a different point of view.

    I’m still convinced Michael Savage is a Poe, saying more and more ridiculous things to see how far the lunatic fringe will follow him. I believe he thinks it’s a joke and he makes money off it, but doesn’t really believe any of it.

    I wouldn’t know, I’d no more buy or read a Michael Savage book than I’d willingly shove my hand into a running blender, but I have it on good authority that his earlier books, the ones where his prognostications can now be checked against history, don’t hold up very well. Which brings me to suggest that all the true believing Christians do as their holy book demands, and invite Michael Savage to a stoning as the guest of honor.

    Savage was inveighing against the president again on today’s radio show (again!), declaring that the possibility of a second Ebola patient in Dallas was “impeachable.” He clearly has a rich fantasy life.

    Although Savage disavows any wish to rake in money from his latest manifesto, he was also instructing his listening minions to march into bookstores and demand that his book be displayed prominently in the front of the store. If managers and “minimum wage workers” did not comply, Savage wanted his worshipers to grab the book and stack it on the bookstores front display table — a little bit of guerrilla marketing — necessary to save the nation, not merely line Savage’s pockets! (There should probably be many more exclamation points there.)

  • Alverant

    @Zeno, wait I thought the cons were all for States Rights so shouldn’t he be demanding Perry be impeached for letting the Ebola patient into Texas?

  • Jared James

    Wait, did he mean a month from when he did the interview or a month from when he released the book to the publisher, almost certainly between nine and fifteen months before it will be printed and released to the public?

    Because, you know, a sense of urgency ought probably to be felt somewhere around the time of its allegedly-related events.

    I wish I had been born in the U S of `Merca. I could have been a millionaire by now, churning out books. Me and my ghost-writing team would go “just for the hell of it, let’s find the most outrageously dumb statement possible and use it as a premise for a book”.

    Zeno @9: I guess that explains why customers were hasseling a friend of mine who works at a bookstore. The customers were furious that the book had sold out, and were convinced that the copies were in the back and that it was all a conspiracy. I’ll have to let him know it’s all coming from the author.

    One month? Cutting it a little close, aren’t we?

  • anachronistes

    @Alverant – and I won’t vote for Obama in 2016, either. You can count on that!
