Michael Savage has been cheering on Russia’s bombing campaign in Syria, which has mostly targeted anti-regime rebels rather than ISIS forces, insisting that Russian involvement in the country’s civil war has terrified President Obama, whom Savage has accused of supporting ISIS.
After asking his listeners last week if they back Russian airstrikes in Syria, Savage implied that the shooting at the Umpqua Community College in Oregon was an act arranged to distract the American public from the conflict in Syria.
“By the way, at the same time, right on schedule, ‘Sorry I can’t notice it, there is a shooting at an Oregon community college, 10 dead, right on schedule!” Savage shouted. “I’m sorry, I’m not generally given to conspiracy theories, but it seems to be a very convenient way to get Obama’s abject disastrous failures as a foreign policy moron off the headlines. Now we’re all focused on the deaths at a community college. I didn’t say that it was orchestrated by the government, but I’m starting to wonder: How do these things happen so conveniently for a failure like this? Where is Obama? What fundraiser is he at? Where is he hiding?”
