He's a nationally syndicated radio host, conservative talking head, and now he's considering a run for the US Senate. Michael Savage announced on his radio show The Savage Nation that he had been asked to run against Sen. Dianne Feinstein for her California Senate seat. In an email to Breitbart News, Savage decided to release exactly what platforms he would be running on, which seems to point to which decision he's leaning towards. At the very least it shows that a stint in a leadership position such as this has floated around in that nutty mind of his.
Email to Breitbart regarding his philosophical running points:
Seal the borders, build the wall like a citadel, deport illegal aliens.
English is the only language permitted on government documents, including ballots used for voting. Again: English only voting
Fix the homeless problem in the big cities of California – get rid of the needles, feces and trash off the streets.
Bring the state taxes of California down to 9%.
No more racism as a way of life among the political class.
Be strong on the environment.
Although Savage believes there is a large conservative population in the Golden State, it still seems to be a legitimate uphill battle to knock off Feinstein. You have to wonder whether this clip, as entertaining as it is, will come back to bite him.
It's going to be a tough call for Michael Alan Weiner (real, less "Savage" name), how do you leave the industry that has made you, all in order to enter the dirty game that is politics. The concern with Savage is that he may go overboard and offend those that simply just can't handle his rhetoric. On the other hand, Donald Trump has proved to overcome this difficult hurdle. Here is the transcript from The Savage Nation this past Friday while discussing the offer with his listeners.
"Some very important people have come to me and said 'Savage, would you like to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in the state of California against the esteemed Dianne Feinstein?"
"Now you may say 'you don't have a ghost of a chance.' . . . How could you David run against the Goliath of Feinstein?' . . . If I ran? If I left radio — I'd have to leave radio to run – and I ran as an independent for U.S. Senate, what would the vermin . . . say about me?"
"I can't say very good things about politicians . . . I'm just probably not cut out for it, but then again that's what the people want. They want an independent who is not a politician or a lawyer to go out there and represent their interest. I'll say again if you think the entire state of California is like what Nancy Pelosi represents, you're mistaken."
If you're Dianne Feinstein, you gotta be a little worried about the political punches this lunatic can throw. She also better hope that her state is as left leaning as she believes. Savage will be pulling together his hidden conservative army, and he'll have the lunatic right leaning duck hunters in Nor-Cal on his side as well. That'll be a formidable group.
