Michael Savage Was Banned Only Because ‘Enemy List’ Was Too Muslim watch

    Secret Government documents have revealed that American talk show host Michael Savage was only included in a British government ‘banned list’ because it was dominated by Muslims.
    The documents have been made public as part of the discovery process in Mr Savage’s ongoing £100,000 libel case against former Home Secretary Jacqui “I never ran anything before the Home Office” Smith.
    The official correspondence, released under the Freedom of Information Act, has revealed that Mr Savage’s name was placed on a list of people banned from Britain only to provide “balance” and that officials specifically warned the Government that it could be accused of being “duplicitous” by including his name.
    Referring to Mr Savage by his real name of Weiner, one of the email messages, dated 27 November 2008, from an unnamed Home Office official, says, “with Weiner, I can understand that disclosure of the decision would help provide a balance of types of exclusion cases.
    “We will want to ensure that the names disclosed reflect the broad range of cases and are not all Islamic extremists.”
    A further email confirmed the decision was approved at the highest level of Government, saying: “HO [Home Office] intend to include Weiner in their quarterly stats… Both the FS [Foreign Secretary] and PM [Prime Minister] are firmly behind listing and naming such people.”
    One civil servant counselled caution, saying: “I think we could be accused of duplicity in naming him” and helpfully added that “the fact that he is homophobic does help.”
    Mr Savage had earlier accused Ms Smith of having plucked his name out of a hat because he was “controversial and white.” These latest revelations add weight to that charge.
    Speaking to the World Net Daily news service, Mr Savage said it was now obvious that the Home Office chose him to balance the list of Muslim extremists because he is Jewish.
    “The name Dreyfus comes to mind. They have attempted to destroy my reputation to avoid offending those Muslims who want to destroy them! The Warsaw ghetto comes to mind, where some Jews threw other Jews into Gestapo hands to live another day,” he said.
    “Make no mistake about this — they ‘chose’ me because I am the only talker in the top five who is Jewish! The old anti-Semitic strain has resurfaced in England, not among the right wing, but on the socialist left. This should galvanize every member of the U.S. media, but will it?”
    Mr Savage said his message for Ms Smith and the people of the UK was, “Shame on you. Shame that you’ve fallen to such a low level.”
    “It’s interesting to me that here I am a talk show host, who does not advocate violence, who advocates patriotic traditional values — borders, language, culture — who is now on a list banned in England,” he said. “What does that say about the government of England? It says more about them than it says about me.”

    He's scum, but he's not - to my knowledge - violent scum. But then again, neither are the Westboro Baptist people who were also included on the list.

    BNP/Daily Mail spin has a slight history of disregarding facts.

    Michael Savage in OP's quote: “It’s interesting to me that here I am a talk show host, who does not advocate violence...
    Michael Savage On April 17, 2006: "Oh, there's a billion of them." I said, "So, kill 100 million of them, then there'll be 900 million of them." [link]
    I don't think anything more needs be said.

    As does all spin. However, the facts from the article still remain and bring to light an important issue.

    If advocating war was grounds to be banned from the country, surely Ms Smith would have had to deport herself?

    I'm simply showing the Savage is a hypocrite and advocate of murder, stating that "here I am a talk show host, who does not advocate violence..." on one occasion and "So, kill 100 million of them [Muslims]" on another. By all means criticise Smith if you want to but I don't think this takes away from my criticism of Savage.

    While he may be advocating war, murder, whathaveyou, there isn't any evidence he intends to actually do any of it himself. That is the difference between him and the Islamists on the list, and the crux of the complaint.

    So you're at least conceding that on his radio show he has advocated the murder of millions of Muslims?
