During the October 10 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Michael Savage baselessly accused Sen. Barack Obama of running a "corrupt campaign," suggested that white liberals "hate white people," repeated the discredited charge that Obama "won't produce his birth certificate," and asserted "Kenya is going to move to America" if Obama wins the election.

Without providing any evidence to support his claim, Savage said, "Obama is running the most corrupt campaign in American history. He's registering the dead, the criminals, the homeless, multiply registering, driving people across state borders." Savage then said of Sen. John McCain: "If he can be John McCain the younger he has a chance to win in my opinion, but if he's gonna be John McCain the compromiser, you may as well move to Kenya. The reason you may as well move to Kenya is because Kenya is going to move to America if Barack Hussein Obama wins."

Savage continued: "Can you imagine Louis Farrakhan as the education minister? Al Sharpton as secretary of the Treasury? Jesse Jackson as secretary of Labor? Don't laugh. Hey, how do you know what Barack Hussein Obama is going to do? He might appoint somebody from Pakistan." Savage later suggested: "What about [former Weather Underground member] Bill Ayers as secretary of Education? That would be good. Wait a minute, I have a better idea. What if he makes Bill Ayers -- what if Obama makes Bill Ayers the head of the FBI -- the man who killed police and tried to bring it all down, man."

During the program, Savage also repeated the discredited claim that Obama has not released an authentic birth certificate establishing that he was born in the United States, stating, "[W]e don't even know where he was born. His party won't produce his birth certificate." As Media Matters for America has repeatedly documented, a copy of Obama's birth certificate is posted on Obama's Fight the Smears website and was reportedly made available to the nonpartisan watchdog group FactCheck.org, which "conclude[d] that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship."

Savage then stated that "I can't wait to see all of the white liberals, the very wealthy ones say, 'Well, I didn't know, I had no idea, I just hated white people.' We'll say the white people, we'll say they only hated white people. And they only wanted to give a man who was not a white man a chance. They wanted to be fair." Savage later added that after Obama wins, "I can't wait to hear what the liberals say. 'Well, I didn't know. I had no idea. I just wanted anybody but a WASP. Anybody but a white man.' Well, the liberals will say that, of course. Why do liberals hate white people when most of them are liberals?"

Savage also stated during the program: "Now I can talk about tacos or I can talk about Osama, Obama, or Obama, or Osama. I could talk about McCain, I can talk about Bush, I can talk about Ayers. All aboard? I think it's futile to talk about any of it because I think it's over, frankly. You may as well just move to Kenya."

From the October 10 broadcast of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: I believe McCain is obviously the underdog. I mean, you don't have to be a genius to figure that out. He's been running the worst campaign known to mankind. And Obama is running the most corrupt campaign in American history. He's registering the dead, the criminals, the homeless, multiply registering, driving people across state borders. And the Republicans are standing like -- like the -- the light -- the headlights in the, the eyes. They don't know what to do.

What does McCain have to do to win the election is the question. Can he do anything to win the election? Other than not be John McCain the latter. If he can be John McCain the younger he has a chance to win in my opinion, but if he's gonna be John McCain the compromiser, you may as well move to Kenya. The reason you may as well move to Kenya is because Kenya is going to move to America if Barack Hussein Obama wins.

Can you imagine Louis Farrakhan as the education minister? Al Sharpton as secretary of the Treasury? Jesse Jackson as secretary of Labor? Don't laugh. Hey, how do you know what Barack Hussein Obama is going to do? He might appoint somebody from Pakistan. He could change the rules on that, since we don't know where he was born. His party won't produce his birth certificate. And I can't wait to see all of the white liberals, the very wealthy ones say, "Well, I didn't know. I had no idea. I just hated white people." We'll say the white people, we'll say they only hated white people. And they only wanted to give a man who was not a white man a chance. They wanted to be fair.

SAVAGE: What about Bill Ayers as secretary of Education? That would be good. Wait a minute, I have a better idea. What if he makes Bill Ayers -- what if Obama makes Bill Ayers the head of the FBI -- the man who killed police and tried to bring it all down, man.

SAVAGE: I can't wait to hear what they say a few years from now. After they've taken this man, and they've made him into president. I can't wait to hear what the liberals say. "Well, I didn't know. I had no idea. I just wanted anybody but a WASP. Anybody but a white man." Well, the liberals will say that, of course. Why do liberals hate white people when most of them are liberals? I don't understand that part of it.

SAVAGE: Now, I can talk about tacos or I can talk about Osama, Obama, or Obama, or Osama. I could talk about McCain, I can talk about Bush, I can talk about Ayers. All aboard? I think it's futile to talk about any of it, because I think it's over, frankly. You may as well just move to Kenya. See if you can get a hut next to Obama's cousin. I'll be right back.
