MICHAEL SAVAGE (HOST): You're listening to the great Charlie Parker. Now, he’s not popular these days but he was a revolutionary musician who gave the world revolution in music, revolution in thought and feeling. And how we’ve gone from him to a lady, if you want to call her that name Murky Waters, in one generation who in my opinion is committing acts of sedition every day on the floor of the House of Representatives in her diatribes against the president of the United States. I believe she needs to be investigated for having committed sedition.
You are a piece of such -- if I could really tell you what I think of you, Maxine, you are one of the most despicable people in the history of the United States Senate -- or Congress. How in the world could your people in your community not see through you, what you are? You’re a disruptive, discordant voice. You are committing sedition, Waters -- let me explain what sedition is, Waters; I don’t know if you can even spell it. I know you don’t know the difference between Korea and Crimea, but what you just said on CSPAN in your floor speech is an act of sedition.
You're listening to Murky Waters. Where she says, “I do not respect this president,” basically she is encouraging people to riot against him, riot against Republicans, commit mayhem against the president. She is openly committing a rebellious speech on the floor. Now what if -- I'm going to have to put it like it is -- a Caucasian U.S. representative had used those exact words against Barack Obama. “My position against Obama and his administration is clear. I oppose this president. I do not honor Obama. I do not respect Obama. He has disrespected the office and offended so many people across this country and around the world”; why, that person would be dragged across the coals. That person would have been called up by every committee that those rats called Democrats could have thought up to create. Wolf Blitzer would've needed a quadruple bypass if a white congressman ever said that about an African-American president, but here is Maxine Waters committing what I think is sedition.
Listen to what she says again at another time because here is what sedition is. Sedition is overt conduct such as speech and organization that tends to an insurrection. … Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent or resistance to a lawful authority. Well that's what she just did, incitement of discontent or resistance to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the law. That would be everybody in the city of Berkeley, California, who riots any time a conservative speaks. They should be arrested for sedition, and the key should be thrown away into San Francisco Bay.
Seditious words and writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition. Typically, Ms. Waters, sedition is considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. My friends, she has committed a definition -- the definition of sedition, and I believe she should be tried by by the United States government for committing sedition on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, and I’m not asking your opinion on this. She is not just a loudmouth college teacher who can get away with virtual murder.
