Michael Savage - Party of One

A New Yorker profile on right-wing talker Michael Savage.

I used to listen to his show when I worked in the S/F Bay area. I remember the day the show went national. A very entertaining guy.

Did you know that Dr. Savage is banned from the U.K. and Canada? Google it and you'll see. This is all because of his views on Islam. The number one rule regarding free speech in Canada and the U.K. is that you can say whatever you want as long as nobody hears you. Cause if they hear you, and their feeling are hurt, then you have committed a crime.
Also, the CRTC wont allow any Canadian broadcasting agency to air Dr. Savage in Canada.

I knew about the UK, but not Canada. In the UK, they want to ban Islamist extremists who are openly advocating death to various persons. But, they also feel the need to balance the ban on an Islamist with a ban on a non-Islamist, so that they do not appear to be picking on Muslims. Hence, the gratuitous ban on Michael Savage.

The UK recently arrested a white guy. Crime? Quoting Churchill's views on Islam, in public.
