Michael Savage

Comment 13th July 2010

Remove American Radio Talkshow host Michael Savage's ban from the UK.

Why does this matter?

The idea of banning an American radio talkshow just for expressing his opinion no matter how offensive someone might find it is quite simply wrong. The right to freedom of speech is an individual right that should not be taken from a government. We ask the government to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech does not need to be protected. If the government is to be given the power to ban foreigners from travelling to the UK for expressing their views then they will soon find ways to control speech of UK residents. Besides how is it that someone like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who advocates wiping Israel off the map is allowed to give an lternative Christmas message to the nation but Michael Savage can't spend a weekend in London?
