(National Sentinel)Â Unrest: The day before a Left-wing kook took a rifle and wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others in an attempt to “kill as many Republicans as possible,” radio talk show giant Michael Savage presciently warned his audience about of violence by â€œmarginalâ€ people who are set to explode and â€œkill somebody.”
And whileÂ James T. Hodgkinson, 66, was not successful in assassinating any GOP lawmakers (yet – Scalise is in critical condition as of this writing), Savage’s read of the nation’s political tea leaves was spot-on.
As reported byÂ WorldNetDaily:
Savage, the host of the nationally syndicated â€œThe Savage Nation,â€ was commenting on recent developments that have escalated the anti-Trump â€œresistance,â€ such as comedian Kathy Griffinâ€™s ISIS-style photo shoot of the decapitated likeness of Trump and the â€œJulius Caesarâ€ play in Central Park featuring the assassination of a Trump-like figure.
â€œI donâ€™t know how much more of this the country can take,â€ SavageÂ said.
â€œWe are at a boiling point. Thereâ€™s going to be a civil war,â€ heÂ told his listeners Tuesday.
Clearly, the nation’s political tensions are higher now than they’ve been in decades – even more so than the tumultuous 1960s, some believe.
â€œIf they keep this up, Iâ€™m telling you thereâ€™s going to be an explosion in this country,” Savage said Tuesday, in reference to the far-Left and their Democratic allies in Congress who have gone out of their way to stoke violence and hatred against President Donald J. Trump and Republicans in general.
Though there have been many prior examples, Savage cited the Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, in Central Park, New York City, as emblematic of the Left stoking hateÂ and violence against their political opponents. The classic is set in Roman times but its main character, Caesar, is a Trump look-alike who is “killed” on the floor of the Senate by Brutus. Caesar’s wife is the spitting image of first lady Melania Trump.
Savage went on to noteÂ that nothing had been done to stop the Central Park play, â€œwhen itâ€™s clearly illegal to assassinate a president, even in a mock way.â€
Though some sponsors have abandoned the production while tens of millions of Americans have denounced it, the production is continuing – despite Wednesday’s attack by aÂ known Left-wing activist who no doubt was driven to act on his long-simmering rage against Republicans in part by the Democrats’ incessant stoking of hate.
â€œDo you understand that there are people out there who are marginal, who are going to go off like a rocket and kill somebody?â€ Savage asked.
â€œDo you understand what this left-wing is becoming in this country?â€
Talk radio king Rush Limbaugh made similar points onÂ his program this week too. He noted after word of the attack on GOP lawmakers spread thatÂ â€œat some point,â€ the extreme Trump resisters â€œare gonna crack, and theyâ€™re not gonna just start cutting heads off of dolls, and theyâ€™re not gonna just start using fake knives to stab people at Central Park.â€
