Michael Savage to Debate Free Speech at Cambridge Union Oct. 15th

(San Francisco, CA) Michael Savage, ’shock-jock’ author of over 25 books with a radio audience of 10 million listeners who was banned from entering the United Kingdom in May by Gordon Brown will argue against the insanity of ‘political correctness’ on Thursday, October 15 at 8:00pm GMT. Savage will appear via internet link to argue his case for freedom of speech.


Quoting Winston Churchill, who said, “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse – a little tiny mouse! -of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic…” Savage will attempt to ’save England from a descent into mental slavery where petty bureaucrats dictate what can and cannot be discussed.”

“The Cambridge Union has been following you with great interest in recent weeks,” reads the invitation, dated July 2. “The decision to ban you has caused quite a stir and we are keen to know how your situation progresses…” Founded in 1815, the Union is the world’s oldest debating society, previously hosting many high profile figures including Ronald Reagan, Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Kissinger and Sir Winston Churchill himself.

“This debate should awaken all free British citizens to the disastrous state the Brown government has created,” says Savage. “By speaking passionately about freedom of speech, I hope to appeal to the British people and the incoming conservative leadership to remove my name from their list of murderers and terrorists.”

Mr Savage is fairly abrasive and is many times obnoxious, but at least he speaks the truth (for the most part), and isn't just another silly entertainer.
