Freedom of Speech
We often think that our freedom to speak our views has not been taken away until we say something that is not acceptable to those around us. It is only then that we realize that we are losing this right.
Michael Savage of "Savage Nation" was unjustly punished for exercising his rights to free speech and out elected leaders did nothing!
Michael Savage is a man who speaks his mind openly on the air. He was officially banned from going to the UK. Why, because he had the courage to speak his mind on the radio here in the United States. There are claims that what he actually said was misinterpreted and he should not have been banned. But that is NOT the point. The POINT is that it should not matter if he was falsely accused or accurately accused, he SHOULD have the right to express those views openly and publicaly as an American citizen based on our Constitution.
The fact that that those in government leadership roles have NOT come to his rescue shows a very dangerous trend among those in America. Americans have lost their love for freedom and are not voicing their outrage as they should. Whether one agrees with the views of Mr. Savage or not, we should defend his right to voice those views.
Michael Savage has stood strong in defending our right to free speech and I commend him for it.
Our elected officials owe Mr. Savage an
When Mr. Savage was banned from the UK, Congressmen, Senators and our President should have stood up and voiced their outrage towards the UK because of this action, but instead they remained silent. Shame on them! -
"The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as "the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression". Furthermore freedom of speech is recognized in European, inter-American and African regional human rights law."
