Whereas, in May 2009, the British government announced that Michael Savage had been put on a list of 22 people, including terrorists and neo-Nazi murderers, banned from entry because the government believed their views might provoke violence;
Whereas, Michael Savage has never advocated violence, and the British government has not specified any statements made by Savage to back its claim;
Whereas, former Republican Congressman Allen West wondered how a “nation who believes in freedom of speech and press” could ban Savage when there “has not been one incident recorded in the United States regarding Dr. Savage instigating violence, let alone serious criminal acts”;
Whereas, Michael Savage has been known to his millions of listeners for more than 22 years as an advocate of the patriotic values of borders, language and culture;
Whereas, the British government has protected many Muslim hate-preachers who espouse the overthrow of the British government, while banning Savage;
Whereas, official correspondence released under the U.K.’s freedom-of-information law revealed a decision was made at the highest level of the British government to use Savage’s name to provide “balance” to a ban list otherwise dominated by Muslim extremists;
Whereas, Britain is the country of the Magna Carta, which gave birth centuries later to Americans’ constitutional right to free speech;
Whereas, emails released by WikiLeaks show that then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refused to act on Savage’s behalf;
Whereas, Clinton counsel Cheryl Mills said it would be hypocritical to press for Savage’s removal from the British list on free-speech grounds, since the Obama administration thought it also would have had legal justification to ban Savage;
Whereas, President Trump – whose winning campaign closely reflected Michael Savage’s philosophy of borders, language and culture, and who had the crucial support of Savage and “The Savage Nation” – himself is the target of a U.K. citizen petition to ban him from entering the British Isles;
Whereas, President Trump has vowed to combat the censorship of free speech that is motivated by political correctness:
SIGN THE PETITION
Therefore, we hereby add our names to this petition calling on President Donald J. Trump and his State Department to demand of the British government that it remove Michael Savage from its travel ban.
It is outrageous that a Western nation would ban a popular American commentator with millions of listeners and several New York Times bestselling books to “balance” its list, apparently fearing it would be accused of being biased against Muslims.
Michael Savage has never advocated violence, and his political views are protected by the First Amendment, which is rooted in the civil-rights tradition that began with Britain’s Magna Carta.
STAND UP TO POLITICALLY CORRECT CENSORSHIP
