Michael Savage Still Can't Go to the U.K., British Government Renews Ban

British government thinks Michael Savage is a savage.
Michael Savage, the San Francisco-based shock jock was, well, shocked to learn this week that the British government renewed its ban to keep the notorious conservative radio host from entering the United Kingdom.

Savage, 69, the bombastic, right-wing radio presenter was barred from Britain in 2009 when the then-Labour government decided his "too extreme" views posed a security threat to the country. Government officials have refused to let him into the country until he takes back some of his scathing comments, according to The Daily Mail, a British newspaper. 

But the Labour leadership never really specified which comments it found to be so dangerous. It only said that his views on Islam, rape, and autism fostered hatred that is right up there with Nazis and terrorists. And of course, the renewed effort to shut Savage up has only fueled the angry man's fire.

"Why does the Cameron government protect Muslim terrorists and Muslim hate-preachers who espouse the overthrow of the British government, democracy itself, while banning Michael Savage from entering the land of their better forefathers?" Savage says.

Perhaps the British government giving Savage too much credit. The right-wing radio host joins a list of 16 other egregious chaps -- including murders -- who are barred from coming to Britain, including KKK members, Hamas terrorist leader Yunis Al-Astal, and neo-Nazi Erich Gliebe.

Savage pointed out that he is no terrorist or murder. Yet the British government wrote to Savage's attorney, saying that he will remain on the list until he takes back his incendiary remarks.

"Your client has not provided any evidence to show that he did not commit the unacceptable behaviour [that prompted the] decision to exclude him, nor has your client provided any acceptable evidence to show his repudiation of those unacceptable behaviours,"  Michael Atkins wrote on behalf of the U.K government.

No doubt Savage's hard-hitting views on immigration and his call for an English-only America has inspired much rage among many people. Yet Republicans in America came to Savage's defense, saying that doesn't make him a criminal nor has he illustrated any proclivity toward violence.

In other words, what happened to good ol' democracy, freedom of speech, and freedom of press, asks Congressman Allen West, a Republican from Florida.

More than eight million people tune into Savage's radio program, Savage Nation, where he's riled up the nation for making controversial comments, such as: "In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out."

Which, as the British would say, makes Savage a complete muppet -- at best.

Today's lesson for the liberal minded individual.  An ancient chinese proverb says, "It is not to know the answer, but to understand the question" !  So, this implies that, if you can't give an educated response, don't try and win with an insult; it makes you look stupid. Unfortunately, this is a typical strategy of the left.  Note: If this is too difficult to understand, at least try to not use the "Race Card"; it's getting old. Thank you.

The United "Ding"dom, with their uncontrolled immigration of muslims, are soon to be alot worse off than Mr. Savage could possibly do to them with his retoric !  England (Eurabia) is on a road to disaster and they know it; nothing can save them now, but they continue with their liberal bias which has ruined their country.  We are also heading for an end if we don't stop "Illegal Immigration".  The people who can't understand what we are heading for, is either for the demise of the USA or completely stupid !!!  You are fooling a anyone.

Funny how racists can't spell. I guess ignorance is either all or nothing.

Funny, how liberals contradict themselves; didn't you just say, you shouldn't catagorizeanother person because they disapprove ?  Probably alot more important than a few "Type- Os".  If you really want to criticize someone, how about a president (obama) who thinks there are 57 states or can't speak without a teleprompter !

Erin, you are next on the "censored" list for the Brits.

Hope that doesn't upset you.

Geo. Orwell, the well-known anti-Socialist, predicted this 63 years ago. The working class have been warned.

What are you talking about? Orwell WAS a socialist.

As much as I despise Mr. Savage, this is going too far.

Good to see a liberal with common sense; one should never "Cut their nose to spite their face". Leave your emotions out of politics.

Let's be honest though, Savage is a racist douchebag first and a conservative second. Calling someone a liberal because they disapprove of Savage makes about as much sense as calling someone a conservative because they despise Hitler.

Good point, though, I think I am right about you being a liberal. Correct ?
