Savage: “I fear that Obama will stir up a race war … in order to seize absolute power”

During the October 8 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Michael Savage invited callers to discuss what they “fear the most if [Sen. Barack] Obama wins” the presidential election. After airing a clip of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Savage said: “I fear that Obama will stir up a race war. You want to ask me what I fear? I think Obama will empower the racists in this country and stir up a race war in order to seize absolute power.” Savage later said: “I want you to call this show and tell me what you fear about Barack Hussein Obama as president.”

As Media Matters for America has documented, Savage declared on the June 13, 2006, broadcast of his program that if Sen. Hillary Clinton ran for president, it would “stir up a race war, a civil war in the country to get that hag, that harridan elected.” Savage added that a Clinton presidential campaign would provoke “race riots” and “will be one long hate crime against white people.”
