Michael Savage had his usual thoughtful response to something, this time to Pope Francis’ encyclical about the need to prevent global warming in order to save lives and avoid all manner of negative results. That makes him, of course, a Marxist. And the precursor to the Antichrist, or the Antichrist, or whatever.
“The Pope is a Marxist,” Savage said. “He is a wolf in pope’s clothing, he is an eco-wolf in pope’s clothing, he’s a stealth Marxist in religious garb.”
Savage continued that Francis “sounds just like the false prophet in Revelation, an ecumenical spiritual figure directing mankind to worship the Antichrist.”
“I think it is up to the Catholic people to turn their backs on this Pope before it is too late, before they wake up and find out that they are in chains, this man is a Marxist through-and-through,” Savage said, claiming that he was “picked by the New World Order the way Obama was.”
We’ll add him to the long list of people over the last 2000 years who have “sounded just like” one of the many mythical people involved with the Antichrist, or the Antichrist themselves. The funny thing is that Savage has said many times that he isn’t even a religious guy. He believes in all manner of new agey woo when it comes to food and homeopathy and all that rot, but while he was born into a Jewish family, he apparently does not practice, nor is he a Christian by all indication. Yet he happily spouts the kind of things he knows his Christian right audience eats up with a spoon.
