Any doubt Americans may have had that Barack Obama is a Marxist should be alleviated now after hearing his rhetoric in a speech in Virginia over the weekend, top talk-radio host Michael Savage told his listeners last night.
Asserting that it is governments and not individuals who create jobs, Obama told entrepreneurs Friday: “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
“You didn’t get there on your own,” the president said. “I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.”
After playing the audio of Obama’s remarks, Savage offered a blunt assessment.
“So there’s communism,” he said. “That’s Karl Marx Obama. That’s Hugo Chavez Obama. That’s Joseph Stalin Obama. This is a very dangerous man.”
Savage, noting he has studied dictatorships, recalled that tyrannical regimes “begin with innocent remarks like this.”
“This man is the most dangerous, most divisive, most evil – I’ll use the word evil – president in the history of America.”
Savage acknowledged he was “stepping up” his own rhetoric, because the situation requires it, and no one else will.
“Things don’t start the way they end,” he warned, drawing lessons from history. “They start with the most innocent remarks like this.”
The elected Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler, whose rhetoric originated with 19th century French anti-Semites, did not start with death camps but with relatively benign racial purity laws, and no one stopped him, Savage pointed out.
“The rhetoric Obama is expressing is not his own rhetoric,” Savage said. ‘This is what is deeply embedded in the man’s brain stem. He has been inculcated with hatred for the American way from the cradle.”
The Cambodian dictator Pol Pot, Savage recalled, “was a mild mannered professor like Obama” who went to Paris, studied Marxism “and came back a flaming communist.”
“It ended with a mountain of skulls,” Savage said, with some 2 million people slaughtered in Cambodia’s infamous “killing fields.”
Pol Pot, instituting what he was taught at Paris universities, unleashed his Khmer Rouge on anyone with an education – the productive people of society.
“What does this have to do with that nice man in the White House with such a nice wife and nice children?” Savage asked his “Savage Nation” audience.
“It starts with rhetoric like this,” he said. “It unleashes the genie in the bottle. It justifies any acts of betrayal, any acts of hatred, any acts of sabotage against the successful.”
He called Obama “the most hateful man who has ever plagued the White House.”
“Everything is at stake in November,” he said.
“Unfortunately, on the other side,” Savage added, referring to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, “we have Mr. Peepers, Mr. Milquetoast, Mr. Checked Pants, Mr. Country Club, Mr. Nice Guy.
“I’ll remind you of something else,” Savage said. “Nice guys don’t finish last, Mr. Romney. They don’t finish at all.”
