On the May 16 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, Michael Savage declared that former President Jimmy Carter is a "Jew-hater" and a "war criminal" who "is like Hitler" because of his criticism of Israeli policies in the West Bank. Savage added that Carter is a "communist, anti-American, anti-Semitic bastard" who has "caused worldwide Islamic terrorism to proliferate around the globe."

The previous day on The Savage Nation, Savage had alleged that "affirmative action and unchecked illegal immigration" are resulting in "a socialist revolution in the United States of America, where intelligence itself is not only suspect, but intelligence itself will soon be declared racist and a trick of the white man." Continuing, Savage said that, "affirmative action is being used to purge our police departments of white males -- particularly heterosexual, Christian white males are being purged from state departments, state police departments, and from police departments." Apparently undeterred by Savage's comments, Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA) appeared on Savage's show during the same broadcast.

As Media Matters for America has noted, Savage has repeatedly used his program as a forum to convey racist and hate-filled commentary. On May 11 and 12, Savage managed to complete a trifecta, smearing Hispanics, gays, and Jews.

From the May 15 edition of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: We are living through -- and I'm going to connect the dots for you rapidly -- a low-grade communist revolution in the United States of America. Let me explain. When Mao Zedong took over China, after a certain period of time, the doctors were taken out of the surgical wards and put into the laundries and made to do laundry. And the communists took the laundresses who were uneducated dolts and took them to the surgical rooms and said, "Perform surgery." When the young women who couldn't -- who before, were laundresses were told to perform surgery said, "But I don't know how to do it," they were shot as counterrevolutionaries.

What we have today as a result of affirmative action and unchecked illegal immigration is the equivalent of a socialist revolution in the United States of America, where intelligence itself is not only suspect, but intelligence itself will soon be declared racist and a trick of the white man. And so if your student works very hard -- your child works very hard and gets a straight-A average, you will hear the affirmative actioneers say, "Why, those grades mean nothing. Life experiences are what count." And the life-experience racket is how they've been able to push dummies ahead of the kid who gets straight A's.

That's how they can take submorons and make them the captain in police forces, while the white man, who gets, let's say, a 100 on a written test, is given a 50 on an oral test with an aggregate score of a 75. So a dummy who got a 50 on a written test can be given 150 with an extra grade for being not white and come up with an aggregate score of 100 and be made the white man's captain inside the police departments of the United States of America. Do you understand what I just said to you? Well, you do if you're a white man and you're in the police department.

They have a new racket. They don't call it affirmative action. The racket works like this: First, they give you a written test, which you can't cheat on. So if the white guy gets, let's say, a 98 or 100, they then give him what's called an oral exam. The oral exam is conducted preferably by a lesbian and a person of color who usually gives the white man a 30 or a 20 on the exam for not being properly communicating. [sic] Then, of course, if they get a minority in there who got a 30 or a 40 on the written exam, they give him a 100 or a 150 on the oral, and so the minority winds up with a higher aggregate score and he becomes the captain in the police department. That's called communism.

[...]

There is a hostile takeover of the United States of America by Mexico. Affirmative action is being used to purge our police departments of white males -- particularly heterosexual, Christian white males are being purged from state departments, state police departments, and from police departments. They are only putting in women -- particularly women who are not married, let's put it to you that way, in a nice delicate manner, unless they're married to a turkey baster, illegal aliens who have become citizens by nefarious means, and, of course, people of color. White males need not apply. This is all connected to the flood of illegal aliens swamping America.

From the May 16 edition of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: Israel is the canary in the mine. Tell me that Israel is not committing national suicide.

[...]

SAVAGE: The rockets are flying in, Israel does nothing, doesn't lift a hand. Israel offers to give back 93 percent of the West Bank, and Jimmy Carter, the communist, anti-American, anti-Semitic bastard that he is, comes out and says, "Israel is evil for giving back 93 percent of the West Bank. They've got to give back 100 percent." That anti-Semitic bastard.

CALLER: Unfortunately, many of our senators are in the same --

SAVAGE: Jimmy Carter is a Jew-hater through and through. Jimmy Carter is who caused worldwide Islamic terrorism to proliferate around the globe. Jimmy Carter undermined the shah of Iran. Jimmy Carter encouraged [Ayatollah Ruhollah] Khomeini to come back from exile in Paris. As a result, Khomeini spread his Islamic poison around the globe. Jimmy Carter is a war criminal. Now, Jimmy Carter comes out and writes a letter today, and says that Israel, by giving back 93 percent of the West Bank, is being evil, it's the Jews again tricking the Palestinians. Jimmy Carter is like Hitler with the double talk on top of it all. I can't take this crap any more. Why is he even taken seriously? Why don't the Jews get up and spit in his face?
