Michael Savage

Dr. Michael Savage, (born Michael Alan Weiner, March 31, 1942) is a conservative talk show host.[1] Savage opposes statism, unlimited immigration and Muslim fundamentalism. He defends America’s national sovereignty and distinct cultural identity. In short, he is a nationalist who champions blood-and-soil conservatism.[2]

Savage is the author of 18 books, including four New York Times Best Sellers: The Political Zoo, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder, The Savage Nation and The Enemy Within. Many of his books have been on botany and Nutritional Ethnomedicine.[1] He holds doctorates in both economics and botany which he received from the University of California, Berkeley.[3]

Savage is generally known to be more outspoken, or more direct, than other conservative commentators. Some view this as his way of driving home points to liberals, who he seems to view as cynical. Other conservatives are strongly against such methods. However, many do find them to be effective and count themselves as fans of his show, which was named by Talkers Magazine as the third most influential talk show in America.[4]

In March 2004, he began a televised version of The Savage Nation on MSNBC, but was let go[5] after telling a prank caller who identified himself as a, "sodomite," in Savage's words, to, "get AIDS and die."[6] Savage explained that he was making a personal insult to a prank caller, who he considered to be harassing him, not to all gays. This is consistent with his treatment of other prank callers.

In 2007, he won the Freedom of Speech award from Talkers Magazine, a talk radio trade industry publication.

His nationally-syndicated radio show is called, Savage Nation. In the early weeks of June 2007, Savage spent almost every minute of his show lambasting George W. Bush's proposed immigration reform bill. Savage takes credit[7] for the defeat of the bill. He has also been credited with coining the terms, "compassionate conservative," and, "Islamo-fascist," which have gained wider usage in other circles.[8]

During the introduction and for the bumper music on his radio program, Savage often uses music by the heavy metal bands Metallica and Rammstein.[9]

Banned in Britain

On May 5, 2009 Savage was placed on a list of persons who have either called for attacks against the British government, or have attacked and murdered individuals based on political or religious hatred; others on the list included Jewish nationalist Mike Guzovsky; imprisoned Russian skinhead leaders Artur Ryno and Pavel Skachevsky; and Islamic leaders Wadgy Abd El Hamied Mohamed Ghoneim, Abdullah Qadri Al Ahdal, Safwat Hijazi, Amir Siddique, Abdul Ali Musa, Samir Al Quntar and Nasr Javed. Citing the hypocrisy of Britain in general, and British liberalism in particular when they stand by and listen to the calls for murder and destruction by Islamic fanatics within Britain, Savage said,

"How can a nation put me on a list and leave hate preachers in England who say that we're going to kill all of you? We're going to convert all of you to Islam. How is it possible that those hate preachers can't be deported from Britain, but I can be banned from Britain? People who advocate actual murder cannot be deported from Britain. How is it that liberalism has gotten so distorted and cowardly?"[10]

Knowing that his written and recorded record has never included such urgings, Savage responded by suing several Britons, including Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, the individual who "redefined" terrorism in Britain, and was responsible for putting Savage's name on the list.[11] She resigned her ministerial position soon thereafter and went on to lose her Parliamentary seat a year later.[12]

Savage wrote an account of the ordeal, Banned in Britain[13][14], and as of May 2011 he is still on the list.[15][16]
