La Merde Sauvage

I’ll sue for defamation, says US shock-jock Michael Savage, on UK banned list – Times Online

An American “shock jock” said last night that he was planning legal action against the Government after discovering that he had been on a list of 16 people banned from entering Britain since October.

Michael Savage, who hosts the “Savage Nation” radio show, told the San Francisco Chronicle that he had been defamed and endangered by the decision made by Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary.

“This lunatic . . . is linking me up with Nazi skinheads who are killing people in Russia,” he said. “She’s putting me in a league with Hamas murderers who kill Jews on buses.

“I have never advocated violence. I’ve been on the air 15 years. My views may be inflammatory, but they’re not violent in any way.”

An outrage against the good name of Mr Savage, to be sure, who is as moderate as Tony Blair’s air conditioning. For instance:

Savage: Israel must ensure “nothing is left living in Southern Lebanon” and must “free[ ] itself of the men … act[ing] like Holocaust Jews hiding in the sewer” | Media Matters for America

Savage: Israel must ensure “nothing is left living in Southern Lebanon” and must “free[ ] itself of the men … act[ing] like Holocaust Jews hiding in the sewer”

and

Savage advocated “kill[ing] 100 million” Muslims; called alleged Duke rape victim a “drunken slut stripping whore” | Media Matters for America

On his radio show, Savage told listeners that “intelligent people, wealthy people … are very depressed by the weakness that America is showing to these psychotics in the Muslim world. They say, ‘Oh, there’s a billion of them.’ ” Savage continued: “I said, ‘So, kill 100 million of them, then there’d be 900 million of them.’ I mean … would you rather us die than them?” Savage added: “Would you rather we disappear or we die? Or would you rather they disappear and they die? Because you’re going to have to make that choice sooner rather than later.”

The implied comparison of Mr Savage to Neo-Nazis is clearly unjust. For starters, Neo-Nazis rarely have nationally syndicated radio shows with millions of listeners.

    Yes, with a name like that it’s not a wonder he’s so angry.
