Savage: "There Will Be Civil War In This Country" If Trump Taken Down

Tyler Durden's picture

Back in June, less that 24 hours before James Hodgkinson decided to open fire on the GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, VA, radio host Michael Savage was commenting on developments that had escalated the anti-Trump “resistance,” such as comedian Kathy Griffin’s ISIS-style photo shoot of the decapitated likeness of Trump and the “Julius Caesar” play in Central Park featuring the assassination of a Trump-like figure, and predicted "there are people out there who are marginal, who are going to go off like a rocket and kill somebody.”  Here's what he said:

“I don’t know how much more of this the country can take,” Savage said.

 

“We are at a boiling point.” he told his listeners Tuesday.

 

“If they keep this up, I’m telling you there’s going to be an explosion in this country.”

 

“Do you understand that there are people out there who are marginal, who are going to go off like a rocket and kill somebody?” Savage asked.

 

“Do you understand what this left-wing is becoming in this country

Little did he know at the time, within 24 hours his prediction came true as Hodgkinson opened fire on a GOP baseball practice in a mass assassination attempt that nearly claimed the life of Majority Whip Steven Scalise.

But now, as the media continues in its crusade to oust Trump from the White House at all costs, a task in which they've seemingly garnered the support of an army of leakers and perhaps even a portion of the U.S. intelligence community, Savage is back with another prediction, namely that the left's continued struggle with "Trump Derangement Syndrome" is going to result in "mob violence" and ultimately a "civil war" if their calls for Trump's impeachment are successful. Per WND:

If the left succeeds in its effort to remove President Trump from office or renders him virtually powerless, America’s working class – the “Eddies and Ediths” – will revolt, warned author and nationally syndicated talk-radio host Michael Savage.

 

Referring to a 1939 novel, Savage told his listeners Friday that “The Day of the Locust”  will come and people will “resort to mob violence” when they “are finally aware of the fact that they’ve been tricked by their society, and that no matter how hard they work as middle class people” they are denied.

 

“That is what’s going to happen in this country,” Savage said. “You have not yet seen mob violence in this country. You’ve seen some mob violence instigated by George Soros’ mobs. … But you haven’t seen the thing I’m telling you is coming in this country. You haven’t seen the ‘Day of the Locust’ yet.”

 

“The Day of the Locust” is a 1939 novel by Nathanael West that features an artist from Yale who comes to Hollywood and creates a painting called “The Burning of Los Angeles.” The painting captures the despair of Americans who worked and saved their entire lives but failed to realize the American dream, prompting anger that boils over into destruction and mob rule.

 

Savage said that “when Eddie finally gets up and says that’s the end of the road, and Eddie’s eyes turn red, and blood is in his eyes, Eddie will turn this society upside down.”

 

“And if [the left] take(s) Trump down, through (Special Counsel Robert) Mueller or through any other source and deny Eddie his vote, there will be a civil war in this country,” Savage said.

 

The civil war, he said will “start slowly, but it will be like Fort Sumter, which started with one cannon shot.”

 

“I’m warning you. All of you leftists who think you’re going to steal our vote, you’re wrong,” Savage said.

 

“We’ve had it up to here. We’ve put up with your garbage in the universities. We’ve put up with your filth coming out of your filth factories in Hollywood. We’ve put up with your hatred that comes out of your newspapers. We’ve put up with your filth and your hatred coming out of CNN,” he said.

 

“But if you do the next step and steal our president, I warn you. You’ve seen nothing yet. You will see the ‘Day of the Locust’ in this country.”

Of course, this is a fairly common theme for Savage who, in 2014, penned a book entitled “Stop the Coming Civil War” in which he described the severity of America’s divide...

“Not since the run-up to the Civil War has the nation been more divided,” he says. “The battle lines have been drawn: The haves against the have-nots. The illegal aliens against hard working middle-class families. Liberals who hate the second amendment versus lawful gun owners. Climate activists whose policies cause forest fires and exacerbate drought against those who understand that the effect on human activity is negligible. Anti-Christian Communist educators against God fearing families. Republicrats against Patriots.”

...but, while his worst predictions have yet to come true, with the political divide growing wider in this country with each passing day, we suspect it may only be a matter of time.

LOL. Mike's has been calling for civil war for 20 years... If you guys didn't show up when Wall Street was handed over the reigns in 2008 or express any kind of outrage with Trump surrounding himself with Goldman Sachs execs, then I'm not sure why you'd show up after this hollow shell of a con-man is impeached, then you have ZERO credibility.   Is that really what you're waiting for, cuz it's a little late bro.  Go and sell a few more ads on your radio show, Mike, that's really what this is all about.

That's the thing with events like this.  The pressure generally builds over years, or decades, and nobody believes that they could happen until the blood is flowing in the streets.

Don't need a mob.  Army of one, bitches.  Mobs can be dealt with.  100,00 skilled individuals, acting individually with rifles, no command structure, no outside shared Intel, nothing to penetrate and misdirect?  There will be no safety, anywhere, for enemies.

 And once they start they won't stop until they are ready to stop, until they think the job is done.

Until THEY think the job is done.

Got it?

Someone say "Go".  Keep pushing it.

Jewish Savage: "We Jews Hope There Will Be Civil War In This Country" If Our Manchurian President Trump Is Taken Down

What Savage says is true, and that is the problem: unfocused anger.  Time to get organized.

COMPARE AND CONTRAST:

Dubai’s Torch Tower was engulfed in flames early Friday morning for the second time since 2015. According to Dubai officials, the blaze damaged 64 of the building's 86-storeys.
...
Friday's fire at the 337-metre skyscraper began around 1 a.m. on the ninth floor. It was fought by firefighters from four stations who had it under control by 3:30 a.m.

The building is the fifth tallest residential tower in the world as well as the 40th tallest structure. But firefighters were able to fight the inferno from inside the building, while residents could flee via smoke-free, fire-free safety zones enabling officials to successfully evacuate the 337-metre building’s 676 apartments.
 
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/06/17/pers-j17.html
...
Ruthless cost-cutting with no concern for public safety laid the basis for the Grenfell deaths and ensured the devastating, rapid spread of the fire from its initial source in just a single apartment.

The fire spread so rapidly due to the cladding on the building bursting into flames. It was added last year in a “refurbishment.” On Friday, what many already suspected was confirmed when it was revealed that the insulating material used was combustible. It was chosen because it was £2 per square metre cheaper than a fire resistant alternative. The saving made amounted to just £5,000.

This and other equally life-threatening decisions were taken or authorised by the Conservative-run Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation, who ran Grenfell Tower on its behalf. The tower block had no central fire alarm system, no sprinklers in place and just one exit stairwell. The authorities ignored repeated warnings from a tenants group and residents over many years who insisted that Grenfell was unsafe and a “death trap.”

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/06/15/fire-j15.html
...
Fire hazard warnings issued by the group over many years have called attention to: faulty electrical wiring and frequent power surges, faulty emergency lighting, vehicles obstructing emergency access to the tower, the absence of a building-wide fire alarm system and the unsuitability of the council’s “stay put” guidelines in the event of a fire in one of the blocks. In November 2016, the group quoted from the TMO’s own report which found a failure to inspect and maintain fire safety equipment: “the fire extinguisher in this building, the basement boiler room, the lift motor room, the ground floor electrical room plus other areas were out of test date according to the contractor’s label on the extinguishers.”

The group reports that in 2013 a major fire at Grenfell Tower was “narrowly averted when residents experienced a period of terrifying power surges that were subsequently found to have been caused by faulty wiring.”

“It is a truly terrifying thought but the Grenfell Action Group firmly believe that only a catastrophic event will expose the ineptitude and incompetence of our landlord, the KCTMO [Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation], and bring an end to the dangerous living conditions and neglect of health and safety legislation that they inflict upon their tenants and leaseholders.”

This weekend, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn spoke before 200,000 people at Glastonbury. In his speech he asked, “Is it right that so many people are frightened of where they live at the moment, having seen the horrors of what happened at Grenfell Tower?”

Corbyn cited Shelley’s famous injunction to workers, made in response to the 1819 Peterloo Massacre: “Rise like lions after slumber.”

But he wants the working class to lie down like lambs. His aim is to stifle popular outrage and restore social peace, as epitomised by his priestly call for the “unity” of “intelligent human beings.” That is why he supports the efforts of Prime Minister Theresa May to direct anger over Grenfell into the safe channels of a public inquiry—out of which, he maintains, several years from now some carefully costed and insignificant reforms will emerge.

By the end of the book, rioting and civil unrest sweep the United States, due to a combination of poor health, poor sanitation, lack of food, lack of services, ineffectiveness of services (medical, policing), disillusionment with government/companies, oppressive government, high incidence of birth defects (pollution-induced), and other factors; all services (military, government, private, infrastructure) break down.

The human cost of capitalism: The Grenfell fire and the poisoning of Flint, Michigan

London, England, a city of 8.7 million residents and home of the largest concentration of billionaires in the world, may at first glance contrast sharply with the impoverished city of Flint, Michigan, a symbol of America’s “Rust Belt,” where the residents have been fighting lead poisoning for more than three years.

However, in both London and Flint—and cities throughout the globe—modern-day capitalism is condemning the working class to impossible conditions and an early grave.

More than two weeks since the June 14 Grenfell Tower inferno, authorities continue to conceal the real number of victims and full scope of this social crime. The police, who raised the official death toll to 80 on Wednesday, now say that they will not have an accurate count until sometime next year. This callous treatment underscores the contempt of the ruling class, which views the Grenfell residents as little more than “collateral damage” in a class war against the working class and poor.
...
Like London, the residents of Flint are the victims of a social crime motivated by the mad pursuit of profit by wealthy investors and their politically connected cronies. In this case, officials from the administration of Rick Snyder, a multimillionaire Republican governor, and his Democratic state treasurer, former investment banker Andy Dillon, engineered a scheme to enrich private contractors and wealthy bondholders by building a new water pipeline from Lake Huron, bypassing the Detroit-based system upon which Flint had relied for decades. This entailed switching the city’s water supply to untreated water from the polluted Flint River.

As in London, state and local officials in Michigan ignored the protests of Flint residents who complained that the discolored and foul-smelling water was making their children sick. The poisoned water resulted in the deaths of at least 12 residents from Legionnaires’ disease, ill health for adults and lifelong learning disabilities for the city’s children.

A Civil War to save Trump, who is one of the enemy. That's funny.

I have come to the conclusion that Trump is not at all what he seems. Trump is the enemy who pretends to be your friend.

I wrote the following before Trump happily agreed to sign the sanctions bill against Russia: I didn't post it immediately as I wasn't sure how true it was. I am still a little surprised at how correct it turned out to be.

The Orange Jew actually wants to enact sanctions against Russia.

However, he wants to do this while still pretending to represent those that voted for him.

That is why the House voted 419-3 for sanctions.

That is why the Senate voted 98-2 for sanctions.

That is why the press screams that the sanctions deal is veto-proof.

That is why all scream that Trump is trapped and has no other choice but to sign the sanctions bill.

All to give him a plausible excuse to sign the bill, to do what he wants, but not what his support base wants.

As many Trump supporters now suspect, Trump has actually been their enemy from the beginning.

If the Orange Jew is the real deal then he will veto this sanctions legislation.

But, Trump is not the real deal. So, he will sign it into law.

Trump is no different from Obama, Bush and Clinton.

For one thing, it appears that Obama, Bush, Clinton and Trump are all Jews.

Though I am loath to repeat myself, here is my post quoted from Chuckles Krauthammer sounding the same exact warning just two days ago, (and my reply):

~""I think [impeaching Trump] would be a catastrophic mistake,...""~

That is the understatement of the year. As someone else pointed out, Trump enjoys the support of LE and the best-armed portion of citizenry in the USA. If you impeach Trump, and I'm not even saying convict, (which is a completely different question indeed), you will see an impromptu marching militia the likes the world has never seen. Then just imagine what such an angered group of patriots would do to Washington, DC and its denizens. I would venture to say that you will have most of K Street burnt to the ground, along with the offices of WaPo, CNN, EPA, IRS, just to name a few. Rural America elected Donald Trump to drain the swamp. Should the deep state and the left try to remove him, "his" army will come and clean out the festering sewer that sits on the Potomac. I'm not advocating that this should happen, but it most certainly would be inevitable, especially if the Mueller charade continues much further. If you think the US military will go toe-to-toe with marching armed Americans determined to "drain the swamp", you don't know those who serve. In a revolution, the military always sides with those who appear they are going to win. Do you want to see a real "Million Man March"? Impeach Donald Trump.

It appears as if Mister Savage, (nee Wiener), is again a day late and a dance partner short to the party. Are we supposed to be impressed by his apparently latent perspicacity? This clown doesn't probably even own a gun, much less be willing to march on the swamp and drain it.

Seriously Michael, why don't you lead the frickin' parade this time, hot shot! Collect up all the closet republicans from the Castro District along the way and waddle your asses across the Bay Bridge on foot. Do not make me laugh...

I'm certain that no one in the history of the federal govt, at any level, has ever even thought about planning for such an exigency.

In a revolution, the military always sides with those who appear they are going to win.

Except when revolutions are put down by the military.

The good military is with Trump. He is sending a message by having Kelly in the WH. Trump has over ten million citizens, deplorables who are armed and will most certainly drain the swamp if they try and impeach him. He is a duly elected president by the people and to persist with this coupe'd etat is very dangerous for the deep state. Especially when they have come out and shown their treason.

It's all bullshit. Do you want to know when I knew the American people would never, ever take action against their oppressors? When you allowed your women and children to be groped by TSA goons in airports and never a peep out of anybody.

Nobody is going to do anything. If a few nuts start shooting they will be blown away within days. You have seen it happen before.

 

The only thing I thought MIGHT make a difference was a massive political campaign to throw out the grafters and wannabe dictators but you just had that with Trump and look what happened. The rats all closed ranks to drag him down and there is nothing you can do about it.
