Right-wing radio host Michael Savage says that replacing former president Andrew Jackson with abolitionist Harriett Tubman on the $20 bill is a sign of the times.
“Obama is leading a war against white people, the people who built this country,” said Savage on his radio show. “This is just another sign of it. Obama is flooding the country with Mexican rapists and drug dealers and Muslims and he’s emptying the jails so gangs of black thugs can assault white women at will.”
“Now a slave replaces a God-fearing, noble white man on our money,” Savage said.
However, Tubman was actually a former slave who carried out secret missions to free other slaves. She also fought in the Civil War and was active in the push for women’s voting rights. Jackson was linked to several massacres of Native Americans.
Savage isn’t the only person upset about the new $20 bill. There have been several racist comments made about the new bill featuring Tubman. Mac Slavo, a columnist for Alex Jones’ website Prison Planet, also said removing Jackson from the $20 bill could lead to mass enslavement.
“Erasing Andrew Jackson from the faces of the fiat funny-money that is passed around by an increasingly ignorant and dependent society (which itself has adopted digital currency as the new norm) will further cut off the past from the masses, and ensure their enslavement,” said Slavo.
