British neofascism on parade

I’m not exactly a huge fan of American radio talk show host Michael Savage, but I’m even less a fan of trumped up British neofascists banning him from Britain for no better reason than to provide ideological balance to the ban list. Yes, Affirmative Action Banning, brought to you by the Liberal Party of the United Kingdom!

The Daily Mail[*1] :

Emails written by Home Office officials privately acknowledged the ban on Mr Savage would provide ‘balance’ to a list dominated by Muslims – and linked the decision to Gordon Brown and Foreign Secretary David Miliband.

The officials admitted their action could look ‘duplicitous’ and cited his ‘homophobia’ as a reason the move would receive public support.

The Right-wing radio presenter, whose hardline views on Islam, rape and autism have caused outrage in the US but whose show, The Savage Nation, has eight million listeners, was identified in May by (former UK Home Secretary) Ms Smith as one of 16 people barred due to their political views.

Neofascists think in terms of “fairness” and “balance.” They really are cynical manipulators of anyone they can. They seek to pit one group of people against another. It’s the oldest trick in the book–divide and conquer.

The race-baters of all colors in the US do the same thing, for the same reasons. It’s not about race, it’s about power. Their power, stolen fair and square from you.
