Wikileaks: Dictator Hillary refused to help lift Michael Savage’s UK ban — ban could happen in U.S.

An email recently released by Wikileaks revealed that as Secretary of State, Democrat Hillary Clinton refused to lift a finger to help conservative talk show host Michael Savage, who was hit with a ban on travel to the United Kingdom.

The UK banned Savage in 2009 because authorities didn’t like his conservative views, and falsely claimed they might spark violence.

Newsmax reported:

Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as secretary of state and through an email from her private account, declined to fight for author and talk-show host Michael Savage’s request to be lifted from a travel ban to the United Kingdom, according to a report on WikiLeaks emails.

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

“I have long believed that someone in the Clinton camp worked in cahoots with the socialist Labor Party government to destroy my career,” Savage told website WND.com. “These emails show that Mrs. Clinton herself had the power to appeal to the British government to remove my name from their banned list but refused to do so. Why?

“As an American citizen I appealed to Hillary Clinton as secretary of state to defend my First Amendment rights. She refused to do so. Why?”

Sadly, the answer to that is simple — Hillary Clinton doesn’t believe conservatives should be allowed to exist, let alone exercise their rights under the Constitution.

Here’s the email released by Wikileaks, which can be seen here:

This is what L staff, in coordination with EUR, have said to Savage’s lawyer:

UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05758704 Date: 06/30/2015

• 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.


There are also concerns this could happen in the U.S. should Hillary become president.

WND added:

In a second email to Clinton on the same day, Clinton’s legal counsel Mills wrote: “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.”

In other words, the U.K. ban against Savage could happen in the U.S. on the same grounds, according to the woman who likely will be White House counsel should Clinton be elected.

“How can a nation put me on a list and leave hate preachers in England who say that we’re going to kill all of you? We’re going to convert all of you to Islam. How is it possible that those hate preachers can’t be deported from Britain, but I can be banned from Britain? People who advocate actual murder cannot be deported from Britain,” Savage said.  “How is it that liberalism has gotten so distorted and cowardly?”

Sadly, it’s been that way for a long time…
