Michael Savage Banned From The United Kingdom

There are 142 comments on the www.womanist-musings.com story from May 6, 2009, titled Michael Savage Banned From The United Kingdom. In it, www.womanist-musings.com reports that:

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has added " shockjock " Michael Savage to the list of those banned from traveling to the United Kingdom.

Well it seems that being “to the left of God”, is not paying off for Savage. In the US his daily hateful screeds are covered under free speech, however the United Kingdom has a different understanding of speech. Speech is not free when the devaluation of another clearly leads to inequality and violence. When Savage rants about illegal immigrants, the disabled, bodies of color, the GLBT community and women not only is he affirming his white male privilege, he is helping to maintain a social dissonance which serves as the basis for our hierarchy of bodies.

I looked it up. He's a 67 year old J-e-W from The Bronx named Michael Alan Wiener. Apparently he used to be some sort of disc jockey.

A good guy. He hates illegals. He's also a radio talk show personality.

He's a very very obnoxious and very mean right wing radio host out of San Francisco.

What does it matter if he is Jewish? He is an obviously an idiot regardless of his background.

Daniel, I have read many of your posts before and found them to be generally well reasoned and balanced.

Why on earth did you feel it was appropriate to identify Savage (whose opinions I loathe, and whom I feel is a disgrace to the human race) as a "J - e- W" ??

I don't understand, and find this deeply troubling.

You're right, this crude jerk would be an idiot even if he was Agnostic or a Buddhist.

He's Jewish. If he was a Lutheran, I would say so. If he was a Muslim, I would say so. If he was a Catholic I would say so. There's nothing wrong with identifying someone is a Jew.

If you disagree, then tell me why.

I've NEVER said ANYTHING anti-Jewish here (I am NOT an anti-Semite), but I have said a LOT of VERY ANTI-CATHOLIC things here. Why ahve you not objected to that ? or is it because you agree wit me ?

PEACE !

He's a hookednose NY JEW that hates Arabs!

It's a pity Hitler didn't get rid of all JEWS!

The world would be a better place if there were NO Jews living!

Just how many time do they want YOU to see the "Holohoax"?

Every time you look around, they're pushing it into your face!

"Oh, we're the CHOSEN people"!

Right!

Forget the 20,000,000 Mao killed!

Forget the 50,000,000 Stalin killed!

Forget the 2,000,000 Pol Pot killed!

Only Jews lives matter!

And we're going to put in your face at every opportunity!

Looks like their is no freedom of speech in England.

One may not like what he says but for the time being he can say it here in America, until they take away our first Amendment rights.

Because it really is not relevant in this case. The guy is an a*hole who happens to be Jewish, and it sounds like his remarks are not religiously based.

PS: You say you are not anti-Semitic but I suspect you are uncomfortable with Jews because, living in Long Island, you encountered too many of the obnoxious variety from Great Neck, et. al. Long Island Jews are a special breed, like redneck whites, and don't really reflect the overall ethnicity. My mother, who was Jewish, liked to call people like them k*kes without any self-hatred. And of course, not all Long Island Jews are obnoxious, it's mostly just the rich ones.

Hm, you seem to be very in line with the sentiments of the Iranian president. Perhaps you might like to consider moving there.
