Extremist Radio Host Michael Savage to Sue UK Home Secretary

Homophobic, racist radio host Michael Savage is pissed he's banned from the UK and has vowed to sue "pork eater witch" Home Secretary Jacqui Smith:

Savage "Smith told BBC Breakfast that Savage was 'someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country'. But Savage, whose real name is Michael Weiner, insisted he had never advocated violence."

He also hung up on NPR yesterday after a caller slammed him for his extremist views.

Listen to clips in which he says he's going to sue UK Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, as well as the hang-up clip, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Why would anyone want to go somewhere where they are not welcome?

    I hope he goes bankrupt sueing the UK Government.

  3. I love the NPR host response: "then go do them"! That is perfect! Savage, er Weiner, is getting exactly what he deserves and I can only hope that Rush is next in line.

  5. He's a dick but so am I. I don't see the point in banning people based on their views. Think about how many places think nothing of banning and killing Gays just because they offend some.

  6. How did he know what the caller was wearing? Or was he just projecting his repressed homo-erotic fantasies? Pajamas and mental institutions? Hmmm. Kinky.

  8. Savage is such a chicken shit He lives in San Francisco and he goes everywhere in disguise (He’s frightened of lefties and gays). Savage says he fears for his life but he’s really just a coward.

  11. The UK recognizes an updated version of the KKK.

  12. The reason he likes the medium of radio is because it is a one way conversation. People who tune in must listen to him, and if he gets a caller he disagrees with, he can hang up on them. Hanging up on NPR just shows how closed minded of a person he really is.

    As for being banned, while I don't entirely agree with it... he is one who in the past has incited hate. A government has an obligation to protect it's citizens from any danger they may see. For a someone to sue them for being put on this list for defamation is just stupid. Remember that the US also bans people who we feel may incite hate or violence!

  13. He probably loves all the PR.

  14. Knock yourself out Mikey. No really. KNOCK yourself OUT. Take a hammer and bash your head.

    Fucking prick.

  15. Please remember that Rock Star Energy Drink is produced by the company owned by Michael Savage (Weiner) and his son Russel Weiner.

  16. I agree with Derek Washington. And not only are they banning people based on their supposedly dangerous views, they're hand picking them in a rather arbitrary manner.

    How many people in Britain had ever even heard of him prior to this ban? Probably next to none. Now they have. Now he has an audience who will search him out on the internet.

    The incompetent Smith's little power play has backfired. She should be canned.

  17. Gee...if every country in the whole wide world was like the UK wouldn't this be a great planet?

  18. Some may remember Savage was on MSNBC weekly (Saturday afternoon) a few years ago. He got mad at one caller who he presumed was gay and told the caller to "die of AIDS".... Shortly thereafter his program was cancelled.

    Savage is on the radio in Milwaukee (tape delayed at 11 PM) and speaks such hatred, homophobia and obnoxious rantings that I am surprised anyone supports him at all.

    His website looks like it was designed by a 12-year old and is "tame" in comparison to his radio rantings.

    I think he knows -- but has a low regard for the public that he doesn't know WE know -- that the 1st Amendment applies to US citizens in the US. Yet he claims he is going to sue the English government based on "freedom of speech".

    He's making money and getting the publicity he wants out of all this.

  19. I'm not a legal expert, but can you sue a government official in the United Kingdom for defamation if the alleged slander arises from an official act? I mean, it would be like Osama bin Laden suing Barack Obama for libel because he's on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List.

    Why not just sue to overturn the ban?

  20. Derek and others - what's your problem with banning him? If the UK considers what he does to be hate speech and incitement to hatred then it's their right as a sovereign nation. Virtually all laws are arbitrary in some way (legal age to drive/drink/marry, for example), and these kinds in particular are not black and white.

  21. DEREK, you are NOT a dick, come here into my ample bosom and let Momma give you a hard long hug. Feel better now? Momma does. I tend to agree with you Derek, it does smack of the "thought police."

    His views are broadcast to get listeners, NOT to educate or enlighten any one. He is a modern day Snake Oil salesman. Americans being the sheeple they are, tend to believe what they read and hear. They never ask questions, they never think deeply (cept the crowd here of course. You are all shining beacons of light). Of course the Brits have the right to not grant a visa to whom ever they wish for what ever reason they wish. Such is the dark side of Democracy.

  22. Savage is an idiot, racist, homophobic, islamophobic etc. He keeps suing everybody but I have never heard of him winning any of his idiotic lawsuits. If you can believe it he recently sued secretary of homeland security, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), to name a few.

  23. I'M THERE SARGON!

    Btw, I had no idea about Rockstar! Wow!

    Posted by: Derek Washington | May 8, 2009 3:28:23 PM


  24. Savage is like a steaming pile of cow shit... annoys everyone with his stinking vileness but will eventually just dry up and blow away like dust... the sooner the better. So long, Weiner!

    Posted by: CK | May 8, 2009 5:14:05 PM


  25. Hmmm.... The Home Secretary tries to shut down political speech by fiat... and Savage is the "extremist"? Yow.
