Micheal Savage is threatening to sue the British Government. I never thought I would say this, but I agree with him. I have to admit, that when they announced the list of people band from entering the UK because of their extremest views and 'hate speech' I was really disappointed. While I have never been to the United Kingdom, I do love the culture. They have a fascinating history and smartest sense of humor. They also have a great tradition (since the Magna Carta) of political tolerance. It is where people like Marx and Lenin went to hang out after being kicked out of their own home countries. So why wasn't it front page news when the "Ban list" started in 2005?
I have to say, its all very disturbing. It is the classic illustration of the proverbial slippery slop. One day you are banning skinhead murderers and Islamic gehadist and the next day you are banning radio talk show personalities that you don't agree with. Now I'm not going to sit here and defend everything Savage has to say. The man is nuts. But a threat to society? Hardly.
