Freedom of speech is under assault, not only here in the United States, but in England. Liberals across the world are worried about the truth and try to restrict anyone who challenges them. Currently Michael Savage, America's third-most popular radio talk show host, is being assaulted from the liberals in England.
Earlier this year, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's government placed Mr. Savage on a "least wanted" list, banning the fiery conservative from entering the United Kingdom. His name appeared beside those of Islamist extremists (including a Hamas terrorist), Russian skinheads who murdered more than 10 immigrants and neo-Nazi white supremacists. According to British officials, Mr. Savage poses a potential "threat" to public safety by inciting "hatred" and "inter-community violence." This is outrageous!!
This week the Cambridge Union, one of Britain's most prestigious debating societies, revoked its invitation to have Mr. Savage participate via video link in a panel on political correctness. The Cambridge Union succumbed to political pressure from Mr. Brown's liberal-left wing government. In fact, e-mails have publicly emerged revealing that senior British officials - many of them with ties to the prime minister's office - placed Mr. Savage on the blacklist in order to provide "balance" alongside numerous radical Muslims. In short, Mr. Savage was sacrificed on the altar of multicultural diversity.
Britain's ban on Mr. Savage is an assault on freedom of speech and freedom of the press. It is not only a political witch hunt that seeks to smear and slander his reputation. It poses a direct threat to his very safety. Mr. Savage has been living with a giant target on his back; the British government's claim that he is an Islamophobe only encourages deranged Muslim militants to possibly commit acts of violence against him and his family - including murder. It is a license for jihad.
This is the same thing that left wing liberal in the US are trying to do to conservative radio through what they call the "fairness doctrine". Radicals and leftists do not like the truth and try to silence individuals who challenge them. This is a worldwide media effort targeting conservatives.
