When They Came for Savage.....

A representative of the British government has banned Michael Savage from that country. He has been listed among such real haters as a Hezbollah terrorist, a leader of Hamas, white supremacists, former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, and Russian skinheads, now in prison for murder. This is a hateful, murderous lot.

And on this blacklist by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, in an “in-your-face” announcement, Smith has added Michael Savage. Since there are no crimes committed by Savage, it can only be surmised that he appears there because he is deemed hateful and may stir up feelings of hate and incitement to violence.

Savage often yells at those he thinks are steering us into socialism, or worse. He sometimes is strident. He is articulate and makes his case. There have been callers who would like to go farther than that, but Savage has carefully drawn that line beyond which he will not go. He will not call for violence, nor will he stand for callers who would like to do so. His is a war of words, nothing more.

Now that we live in a New World Order, globalism reigns supreme. What is happening overseas has more importance than ever. However, instead of being able to count on traditional allies, we find the government of Britain colluding with a push toward punishing so-called “hate” crimes. Canada has already succumbed to this push, stifling religious opinions that do not toe their particular line.

The European Union has become almost monolithic. Britain’s representatives have betrayed the common man in forcing this union. It is largely hated because the citizens have little input as to how they will be governed. However, the elites that run the country have learned well how to leverage a small amount of power. It is the same all over the EU, to a large extent. The EU, having the blueprint, and having had time to iron out the problems, stands ready to help implement our own union, the North American Union. Our grand plan is to merge Mexico, Canada and the U.S. into the NAU.

Connecting the dots, we can see that our own domestic “hate” legislation is being pushed along even now. The Democrats have always wanted it. Now they think they are in a position to ram it through. The “victims”, the beneficiaries of this legislation, were chosen based on “actual or perceived…sexual orientation, gender identity”.

Representatives Louis Gohmert R-Texas, and Steve King R-Iowa, tried to have congressional Democrats define “sexual orientation” in this bill, but were refused. This is so vaguely defined that some have dubbed it “The Pedophile Protection” Act. King and Gohmert also tried to add an amendment that pedophiles were not protected under the law. Again, Democrats voted against this provision.

King thinks that this is a national effort by homosexual activists to not only have the freedom to choose their lifestyle, but be able to demand that approval be given and that those who don’t agree with their particular behavior will be silenced by law.

We saw the hatred toward those in California who worked to pass legislation stating that marriage is between a man and a woman. Elderly people who carried signs were accosted and their signs were ripped from their fingers. An elderly woman had a cross taken from her. That was her own property. No tolerance of opinion there, although they prate about it. Early on, we were told that homosexuals just wanted to be left alone; just to have respect, just to have tolerance. How far we have come.

Christians seem to be particularly hated and the homosexual lobby would like nothing more than to silence them and their pastors. Canada is just a little ahead of us in that regard. Catholics have been a favorite target. Churches have been disrupted in their services. Wild looking people in garish garb run throughout the pews, scaring children. Holy sacraments are thrown to the floor and stomped upon. Condoms are thrown through the air and lesbians kiss on the altar. These attacks were premeditated, planned, staged (with props), and executed. This is not tolerance they are asking. This is hateful behavior. The Catholics are under attack and do not always know if actual shooting will be used against them, the violence is so intense. The attacks are calculated to instill fear in those under siege.

There is a two pronged attack on free speech. The other is the so-called “fairness doctrine” which was trotted out recently. There again, this has been a favorite to be put into law by Democrats. They think they have the power to do it now. More commentators have noticed this and condemned it because it is familiar to them. However, hate speech laws are not as familiar.

A wise man said that with politics there are no coincidences. Accusing hatred of those who just want to give an opinion comes right back to Michael Savage. Since we are all “citizens of the world”, according to some, the globalists zero on in those who speak against them. One of the loudest is Savage. To take him on calls for a certain “chutzpah”, unless you know that your allies are very strong. I think that Smith knew of Savage, and his been egged on by the globalists in our country. Usually, the modus operandi is to whittle away at some of the weaker structures until the opposition falls. With Savage, Smith has taken on the top.

It is a gamble. We have seen that he will not be intimidated. He now has a suit against Smith. Discovery should prove interesting. What little we are allowed to see in Britain lets us know that the politicians are quite corrupt. Ms. Smith herself is not squeaky clean. Did someone high up in our government give the “go ahead” for the action taken against Savage? With several millions of listeners, Savage is a threat, unlike their usual MSM puppets.

Most importantly, how will We the People respond? Everyone who writes or speaks should be alarmed. When laws are enacted for one set of people, there is favoritism that should never happen in a free Republic. If you can be sued just because somebody charges that they “perceive” that their “feelings” have been hurt, the slippery slope is greased.

Voltaire is credited with saying “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it”. To the death. Strong words.

There is time to speak out and make allies. There is time to let our representatives know killing free speech is not acceptable. These reps seem to only fear one thing: a loss of power. They respond when enough let them know to change their votes.

They have come for Michael Savage; let them find a phalanx of Savage allies. If Savage is left to “twist in the wind” alone, there will soon be no champions of free speech, whether you like the speech or not.
