....a little more on Savage.....

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Right-wing radio host Michael Savage is threatening to sue the British government after he was one of several Americans named on a newly published immigration blacklist.

"I want to sue the British home secretary (Jacqui Smith) for defamation," he said in remarks to the conservative website WorldNetDaily after Smith announced the list on Tuesday.

The San Francisco-based Savage, whose real name is Michael Alan Weiner, said Smith was "linking me up with murderers because of my opinions, my writings, my speaking -- none of which have advocated any violence, ever."

UPDATE: The Daily Mail is reporting their poll showed that 79% of Brits do NOT think Savage should be banned.

He should sue that leftist government of Britain. They wouldn't know their ass from their elbow, in many instances, only a court decision seems to be able to bring them to their senses

"79% of Brits do NOT think Savage should be banned."

Very encouraging

Angel, I'm HOPING Savage doesn't back down, aren't you? Just told a friend on the phone "I'm hoping this becomes a HUGE stink!"

Right on, MK and RK...."Go get'em, Michael Savage!"

Well, at least the Brits are consistent. 79% also do not think extremists should be deported. I'm happy we can all find our comfort zone.

Meanwhile, I'm glad Mr. Savage has a ton of money because he'll need it. One cannot sue a government without its permission. Good luck with that, Michael. Here's a better idea; stop projecting a false sense of self-worth and send me the money you'd ordinarily spend for a British shyster; at least, I'll spend it in America.

I wrote on this too. 79% huh? I knew it was unpopular but this is a big number. This is going to blow up in the governments face.

Why is everyone shocked over this? Our president the Dark Lord of the Sith has Homeland Security doing research and reports on people with opposing viewpoints. Why would Europe surprise you?

Z said...

Mustang, interesting point. is suing Jacqui Smith, whom he's said he'll sue the same as suing the British government by virtue of her position?

Meanwhile, a report today says 20% of Americans identify as REPUBLICAN. I had to laugh that the left thinks 80% are liberals now. I have almost NO conservative friends who identify as REPUBLICAN anymore..see the difference!?

Mustang said...

Joe was talking about labels the other day. I keep hearing democrats complain how the far right loves to label them as liberals.

Guess what? The term republican and democrat are labels. They identify (label) political parties. But the terms liberal or conservative are not labels; they are what people believe, and how they behave. And neither is "socialist" or "Communist" a label; it is how adherents to those political ideologies behave.

I honestly do not see myself as a republican because that party is as corrupt as the democrats. I do see myself as a conservative; those are my values. So if liberals don't like that, they can kiss my tookiss. (Did I spell that right?)

Good food for thought, though Z.

Exactly, Mustang.

If I do refer to myself as a Republican, it's as a Reagan Republican.

Great points, folks...

And, by the way, did you guys see Maria Conchita Alonzo on Hannity tonight? SHE ROCKED!

She SO gets Obama and his demeanor. SHE sees the threats because she lived in Venezuela and very closely follows Chavez' shenanigans....she sees similarities to Obama and it takes someone who's lived in socialism to really see it, and how fast it can take over.

She also NAILED it when she said "In the Americas, socialism is more like communism, not like Europe's socialism" which is absolutely true and something Mr. Z's been trying to get across to Americans for the last year or so (since we've been sinking into the socialist/commie abyss)

Mustang, allow a leftist to correct you, it's "tookis".

This sure has been a blessing for Michael Whiner (aka Savage) at a time when rabies radio listenership is down he's getting a good ratings boost.

I think you should make him head of the RNC. He's perfect.

Z said...

It's toochus.

And what radio's going DOWN?

Oh, ya...Air America. Closed down, city after city. What do they need radio for when the left owns the media? And, FOX is going down in the ratings; big surprise, it's mostly down in PrimeTime when the leftist Rivera's show is on, plus everyone's got such politics fatigue who wants to watch the truth!? People are tiring of THE ONE, too........

"President Obama's press conference Tuesday night drew 40.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. That's "down 18% from from his Feb. 9 press conference, and down 23% from his Feb. 24 address to Congress,"

he needs to take a break. We're not interested.

What a headline ! This is getting serious.

"Savage to "low-life, beer-swilling mutt" at UK Home Office: "You can tell your Queen that I will call for a boycott of all travel to Britain by my 8 to 10 million listeners""

I'm not a huge fan of Savage, but this is insanity.

Z said...

Vegas, I'm not either, but this is TRUE insanity.

Imagine the Left not understanding FREE SPEECH? It never ends.

And, who put England up to it? As if they know who Michael Savage IS? Cracks me up.
