Clinton Emails Show ‘Free Speech’ in Jeopardy

An email dump recently released by Wikileaks reveals that in 2009 as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton refused to help talk show host Michael Savage, after he was banned from travelling to the United Kingdom. The UK forbid Savage from visiting because authorities claimed his speech, based on his anti-Islamic radical point of view, might spark violence.

Further, the emails show that Hillary thinks Savage should suffer the same fate, here in America. It also proves how dangerous a Hillary Clinton administration would be to the U.S. Constitution.

This is what L staff, in coordination with EUR, have said to Savage’s lawyer: The demarche was delivered Friday in London, to FCO and Home Office officials. The Embassy passed your letter to them, drawing their attention in particular to Mr. Savage’s statement that he had never advocated violence and that his statements had never instigated violence. The British officials said that, given Mr. Savage’s legal action in the UK, Treasury solicitors would contact his legal representatives directly to provide details of the comments that had given rise to the decision to exclude him.

On Michael Savage:

Joan wanted everyone to clearly understand before any further discussion occurred with UK that Savage’s exclusion could also have occurred under our legal regime so to the extent we want to suggest to UK that his exclusion on free speech grounds is inappropriate (or any thing of that like) that we should understand we may appear slightly hypocritical given our legal regime and actions.

Joan makes good points. Let’s hold on doing anything until we all talk.

What makes this so nefarious is that the Progressive media is talking about everything but this and acting as if the same could never happen to them.
