On Tuesday, right-wing radio host Michael Savage said he wants Donald Trump to restore the House Un-American Activities Committee or a similar committee focused on “hunting down subversives” and volunteered to lead the inquiry himself.
“We need a new HUAC but you can’t call it HUAC,” Savage said, “but we have to unmask the traitors within because we’re facing grave danger from these traitors.”
Savage named dozens of supposedly “subversive” groups that he wants investigated, including People For the American Way, the American Civil Liberties Union, MoveOn, Center for American Progress, Black Lives Matter, Media Matters and the National Council of Churches.
“If Trump wins, which is a longshot by the way with the voter fraud that’s on the horizon, the electronic fraud is being set up as I speak by the vermin that work for Soros and others, they’re going to steal the election as sure as I’m sitting here, but if Trump should win, that’s when our work really would begin,” he said.
Trump has appeared on Savage’s show several times and even floated the possibility of naming him to a position in his administration. Savage has previously said that Trump should “rule by decree” and deliberately violate the civil rights of liberals.
