Michael Savage joins Phelps family on list of those banned from Britain
United Kingdom Home Secretary Jacqui Smith revealed yesterday the names of 16 people barred from visiting Great Britain. The latest to join the list: conservative talk show host Michael Savage, who joins Topeka’s own gay hating preacher Fred Phelps and daughter/disciple Shirley Phelps-Roper.
The news of the ban on Phelps and daughter came out back in February but the Savage angle gave it new life.
Of the ban on the Phelps family, Smith told The Independent:
“If people have so clearly overstepped the mark in terms of the way not
just that they are talking but the sort of attitudes that they are
expressing to the extent that we think that this is likely to cause or have
the potential to cause violence or inter-community tension in this country,
then actually I think the right thing is not to let them into the country in
the first place. Not to open the stable door then try to close it later.
“It’s a privilege to come to this country. There are certain behaviours
that mean you forfeit that privilege.”
And the Phelps family’s privileges have been revoked.
