GRITtv: Michael Savage Cries Defamation

From: Brave New Films




If you were hoping right wing talk radio host Michael Savage might move to London, you’ll be disappointed to learn they won’t have him. The British Home Office released what it called a name and shame list recently, dentifying 16 of the apparent 101 people who are barred from entering the country under strengthened travel laws adopted after the July 7, 2005 subway bombings. The Home Office described Savage as “seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred which might lead to inter-community violence.”

Others on the list include a former member of the Palestine Liberation Front, a Saudi Arabian Religious scholar, and a Pakistani cleric. The Rev. Fred Phelps, a pastor in Kansas, and his daughter were also on the list and barred for “fostering hatred.” Phelps is known for never missing an opportunity to preach against the LGBT community.

It’s tempting to cheer the British government’s decision to keep some of these undesirables out, certainly to call them out. But it raises a number of disturbing questions, of course, and could be used to bar anyone the government dislikes. Where do you draw the line? It’s an age old question.

What isn’t a question is that Michael Savage is a hypocrite. Endlessly defaming just about anyone he doesn’t like, Savage has said he’s considering a lawsuit against the British home secretary for, ahem, defamation. Yeah, good luck with that.

Thanks for your fight for Understanding between Nations and People of Different Colors.

I got into trouble in Gather.com for defending the "Obama is a Great President" Hypothesis, and my spankers hate and abhor two Great Ladies that I love and admire :


A bunch of Republicans is spanking me !! - Many against one - Do you want to join a good fight ??

Gather.com is a wonderful site of Forums, Conversations and Discussions, People do not seem to be the meannest Racists or Lowest Scum.

I wrote a Leading Article, or Head Post in Gather.com :

I explained how Obama may last for 8 years or perhaps 16 years like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

How Obama is going to "torture" the guys at Fox News and other Idiots

Then I woke up the Dracula of Republicans. My spankers have answered with rivers of hate against :

1) Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ( I admire and Respect this Lady )

2) "The race card is the final hiding place of a liberal that can't continue a debate based on it's merits. I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, it does, but the Democrats manipulate it to further their agenda."

3) Furious Attacks against Wanda Sykes for Kidney of Mr Rush Limbaugh. ( I love and admire Wanda ).

4) "I don't have a problem with the color of Obama's skin, I have a problem with the thinness of it." -- Dennis Miller at Bill O'Reilly's comedy show.

5)"As far as you pretty much castigating the America youth as following sheep, it is what I would expect from a typical liberal."

I am a humble ant and my "Bag of Tricks" is certainly very limited. I am not the smartest follower and admirer of Mr Obama and the Democratic Party. I enjoy laughing at fools, but I consider that this fight is very uneven, many against one.

So if you want to say some painful realities to those educated by the Wisdom and Profundity, the Great Depth of Intellect of Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller go to the above link.

By the way. I still think that Mr Obama has gas for many years. He will be a Great President.
