Michael Savage Was Banned From Britain to Meet Non-Muslim Quota

Now we know why conservative talk show host Michael Savage has been banned from entering Britain. Turns out they have an informal quota for non-Muslims on the no-entry list. No, I’m not kidding:

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. …

Mr Savage, who had not even applied for entry to Britain, claimed his name had been ‘plucked out of a hat’ because he was ‘controversial and white’. He has since served a £100,000 libel writ on Ms Smith, who announced his ban on television.

Now, correspondence released under Freedom of Information legislation suggests the banning of Mr Savage, whose real name is Michael Weiner, was based on a party political calculation made at the highest level of Government. …

The documents include a draft recommendation, marked ‘Restricted’, saying: ‘We will want to ensure that the names disclosed reflect the broad range of cases and are not all Islamic extremists.’

A further email confirmed the decision was approved at the highest level of Government, saying: ‘HO [Home Office] intend to include Weiner in their quarterly stats… Both the FS [Foreign Secretary] and PM [Prime Minister] are firmly behind listing and naming such people.’

One civil servant, again unnamed, counselled caution, saying: ‘I think we could be accused of duplicity in naming him’ – without explaining why – and even added that ‘the fact that he is homophobic does help’.

Since Islam is and has always been rabidly hostile to Christianity, Judaism, and Western Civilization, the only way liberals can compel themselves to condemn it is from the point of view of moral relativism. They’ll admit Islamic terrorists want to reduce London to a smoking ruin if they can put that on equal footing with the Jewish Michael Savage failing to endorse the homosexual agenda.

Next the bean-counting liberals will impose their quotas in the courts. Every time a Muslim is arrested for blowing up a bus, they’ll throw a Christian in jail for having politically incorrect thoughts regarding the difference between right and wrong.
