Because the United Kingdom’s home secretary Jacqui Smith announced Michael Savage (aka Michael Weiner) was on the nation’s banishment list, Savage says he’s going to sue her for defamation. No, really, he’s serious! Says Savage: “For this lunatic Jacqui Smith, the home secretary of England [sic], to link me up with skinheads who are killing people in Russia, to put me in [the same] league with mass murderers who kill Jews on buses, is defamation. I thought this was a joke or a mistake … How could they put Michael Savage in the same league with mass murderers when I have never avowed violence?” That’s so funny, Michael! Because WE’LL TELL YOU.

On just one of many days when you spat hateful bile from the comfort of a radio studio, you also “avowed violence.”

On April 17, 2006, a signature anti-Muslim tirade included: “Intelligent people, wealthy people … are very depressed by the weakness that America is showing to these psychotics in the Muslim world. They say, ‘Oh, there’s a billion of them.’ I said, ‘So, kill 100 million of them, then there’d be 900 million of them.’ I mean … would you rather us die than them?” Listen here.

But that was just a joke, right Mike? And not representative of your true feelings?
