Prompted by increasingly troubling events at home and abroad, Michael Savage pushed his publisher to make his new book available for pre-order as soon as possible.
That book, “The Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth,” comes out in October. In his latest work, Savage calls on readers to help save America from certain doom, starting at the ballot box – but going beyond electoral politics to address the roots of our problems.
Savage “believes the split between right and left is possibly irreparable, unless we understand what’s really happening and how we must act to stop it.”
On the air this week, Dr. Savage used his background as a trained epidemiologist to explains the volatile situation in Ferguson, Missouri. He compared the town to a human body trying to fight off infection.
In his comparison, Al Sharpton and other outside agitators who claim to be “peacemakers” are actually making things worse, while the real peacemakers – the police – have, Savage said, been “neutralized by the ACLU and the media” (Free audio).
Limbaugh praised Texas Gov. Rick Perry for the nonchalant way he dealt with being indicted.
Saying that Perry’s mugshot makes him look like actor James Brolin, Limbaugh said: “He’s responded to it extremely well, but he’s always gonna have the word ‘indicted’ now in every headline, and he’s gonna have a mug shot in every story, although I don’t think he will. Because he’s learned there are ways to do mug shots. The way to do a mug shot is to make it look like an official portrait. You go in there dressed well and you smile. You smile and you look happy, and the media will not use it, particularly if you look good” (Free audio).
A caller asked Limbaugh sarcastically why Obama hasn’t gone to Ferguson, Missouri, to “fix” it; after all, the caller observed, the president is a Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
Limbaugh said it was a good question: “This guy, he got the Nobel Peace Prize, what, two months after being sworn in, and they asked the committee, ‘Wait a minute, uh, peace prize winners normally have done something.’ … The Nobel Peace Prize winner, he can’t go to St. Louis ’cause the White House hasn’t decided whether or not to send him. And he can’t go because – well, he just can’t go. So maybe, if he continues to do nothing, he’ll win [the Prize] again when he leaves office. You never know” (Free audio).
