    Re: Michael Savage Banned In The U.K.

    In America we let the Klan and Neo-Nazis have public rallies to spew their bile, so being that Savage is pretty much on their level, we can't exactly deny him the ability to write books or spew his hateful vile on his radio show.

    However, many countries are not as tolerant as sociopathic douchebags like Savage as we are. The U.K. has laws against hate speech, that is all that Savage seems capable of spewing, so I can see where he would be banned.

    To me, sociopaths like Savage are not the problem, its the people that actually give them a daily audience that are the problem.

    What do you mean by the term, 'sociopath'?

    When you look at Savage's stances they are in response to affronts to traditional institutions and ethos brought on by progressives.

    In effect, your kind have created a mirror-opposite monster in your own likeness. His excesses are what he sees as appropriate to combat your 'progress.'

    By the way:

    Savage coined the terms "Compassionate Conservative" and "Islamo-Fascist," which have been hijacked by Republican speechwriters and spread like wildfire.

    An independent-minded individualist, Michael Savage fits no stereotype. He attacks big government and liberal media bias, but champions the environment and animal rights.

    Trained as a scientist, he holds Master’s degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in Epidemiology and Nutritional Science. He spent decades searching and saving tropical rainforests.

    Savage is also the author of 18 books including four New York Times Best Sellers: "The Political Zoo", "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder", “The Savage Nation” and “The Enemy Within.”

    .
    Hate speech laws are illegal in the US. We have this thing in this country called the first amendment. Liberals still somewhat value free speech or so they claim.

    I am intolerant of Savage because he crosses the line into incitement on many occasions. There's just no sense in it
    I listen to his show and I have never been incited to do anything illegal.As far as I know he has not incited anyone to do anything illegal. It is absurd grouping him with terrorist sympathizers, nazi scum and scum who protest at the funerals of fallen soldiers and marines.

    Meh, I find him obnoxious. If you want the fire and passion, and intelligence, Levin is your man. I find Savage rather boorish. I haven't heard him in years, but he is definatley not for me.

    So you are saying he is the Rosie O'Donnell of the right? Nuff said.

    Look at how angry he makes you. Look at how your rhetoric is symmetrical with his inflammatory presentation. Why does discussion about Savage make you abandon any semblance of civility and start throwing out the words scum and why does discussion about savage make you avoid honesty by calling people nazis and "terrorist sympathizers"?

    Holy crap, I actually agree with jamesrage on something.

    Michael Savage is possibly one of the nastiest, most unpleasant people on the air. But as far as I know, he's never incited violence. And banning people from a country for their views is a bad idea. What's to stop the government from doing this more and more, until the only views allowed are pro-government views?
