Michael Savage, host of “The Savage Nation,” appeared on Tuesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” where he referred to Black Lives Matter activists as Obama’s shock troops and compared them to Hitler’s “Brownshirts.”
“The Black Lives Matter movement, and I’m going to say it like it is, are Obama’s shock troops. They’re the Brownshirts that Hitler had in Germany,” said Savage to a surprised host. “Never forget what Hitler did in the beginning. He used street thugs that he gave uniforms to, brown shirts and ties – to beat people up with clubs, to intimidate the police, to cause a total takeover of civil society.”
It’s not hard to draw similarities between the two groups. The “Brownshirts,” or “Sturmabteilung” (SA) in German, functioned as the Nazi Party’s first paramilitary wing. Not only did they protect important Nazis during rallies, they were also known for disrupting the rallies of opposing groups – something Black Lives Matter has done often.
The Brownshirts played a key role in Hitler’s rise to power, but it’s hard to tell exactly who Black Lives Matter supports, as they have a habit of attacking the only candidate proclaiming to help them.
During the interview, Savage also spoke about his book Government Zero, which Malzberg says will soon be a best seller. The book includes solutions to the troubles of modern America. You can view the entire interview by clicking the link below.
