Michael Savage banned from the UK

.

UPDATE  (5.6.09)  Savage takes calls today on his show from Brits who are outraged over UK ban.  He urges all callers to get his book at a discount and send it to the Home Secretary, sues her for defamation, demands an apology and asks that he be allowed to address Parliament to explain his views.  The guy has balls.

EXCERPT    (5.5.09)

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said she decided to make public the names of 16 people banned since October so others could better understand what sort of behaviour Britain was not prepared to tolerate. The list of the 16 “least wanted” includes radio talk show host Michael Savage, real name Michael Weiner.

[Michael Savage, American citizen, has never been accused of a crime, has not broken any law, and has never promoted violence.]

Smith alleges Savage engages hate speech which could provoke violence should he set foot in England.

IS THIS RELATED?

Savage sues Napolitano for targeting vets

THE QUESTION THEN BECOMES, SINCE WE HAVE SEEN THIS ADMINISTRATION ENGAGE REAL THUGGERY, AND WE HAVE SEEN OBAMA ENGAGE THUGGERY DURING THE CAMPAIGN, IS THERE ANY CONNECTION BETWEEN THIS ADMINISTRATION AND THE ACTIONS OF THE BRITISH HOME SECRETARY?

In other words, because Savage called Napolitano on her DHS report targeting American conservatives as potential terrorists, and sued DHS as a result, did elements in the Obama administration make moves to encourage Smith to ban Savage from the UK, a political and PR hit if you will?

    I don’t agree with Savage being banned.

    However, Savage is no friend of free speech. Despite Savage painting himself as a champion of free speech, he is anything but. He took the organisation CAIR to court to prevent them from using snippets of his show on their website. He lost. However, had Savage prevailed, free speech would have lessened for us all. See:

    According to Savage, CAIR was trying to silence him. The audacity of the man fighting back to defend himself!

    He is a patriot and a defender of freedom.

    If you truly believe Savage is opposed to free speech, you haven’t really listened to the man, or read his work.

    Additionally, let’s remember our enemies (whether Muslim extremists or others) have always said they would use our freedoms against us. Ridiculing the defenders of freedom as being opposed to freedom of religion so as to carve a niche for that very religion (or worldview) in the aggressive act of subversion and demoralization is always a useful tactic, especially when people are so easily duped.

    PS: you state you don’t know if CAIR is terror-related. I invite you to consult these articles:

    Reminder: it was Savage who took the lead defending the Haditha Marines.

  5. Clint says:

    Michael Savage is banned from England! Using its same freedom-hating standards, Britain should now ban from its shores that “hate-fostering extremist” known as Jesus – and of course also ban the Queen since she is officially the “Defender of the Faith” that Jesus started!

  6. Allan Erickson says:

    Yeah, nothing like that Jesus hate speech to drive Leftists wild and hurt the feelings of others. Definite hate crime stuff to talk about the King of Kings and the gospel of love. Sparks all kinds of violence (in our direction). Onward Clint! The King is coming, and he will put all evil doers under his feet.

    BTW: The bloody home secretary really doesn’t need any help destroying free speech in Great Britain—
