Conservative radio host and best selling author, Michael Savage was left bloodied and shaken after he was physically attacked at a San Francisco restaurant.
The attacker also kicked his 10 lb grey poodle, Teddy who is always with him.
Savage, with his dog, Teddy, was finishing up dinner Tuesday night at Servino Restaurant in Tiburon, California, north of San Francisco, when the unnamed assailant charged up to Savage and began yelling, reported local media blogger Rich Lieberman.
The attacker kicked the poodle out of the way, grabbed Savage and threw him to the ground, according to an eyewitness.
Savage was not seriously hurt, but the incident left him bloodied and shaken, Lieberman said.
Savage’s attorney, Dan Horowitz, told the blogger he will seek criminal charges.
“We’re going to seek felony charges against the man, and we’re going to investigate this as a hate crime because of Michael’s political views,” Horowitz said.
In a statement to Lieberman, Savage said he was leaving the restaurant “when a total stranger followed me out of the restaurant and confronted me.”
The man said, “Are you Michael Weeeeener?” mocking the radio host’s legal name, Weiner.
Savage said: “I turned to him and said, ‘Go away, I don’t know who you are.’ I turned to leave and he pushed me and I fell down. He moved toward me to push me down and he shoved my 10-pound poodle out of the way to get to me.
The leftists are the true fascists as they resort to violence whenever a person has a different political opinion than they do. Michael Savage is a 74 year old man. It takes a true coward to attack a man his age.
