It's raining irony

Or that could be the remnants of the glass house after all the stone throwing:
"Two Americans banned from entering the United Kingdom because the government feels they have been "stirring up hatred" responded by slamming the country's home secretary, and one of them threatened to sue her.

Radio talk show host Michael Savage and the anti-gay Rev. Fred Phelps were listed Tuesday among white supremacists and radical Islamic clerics who will not be allowed into the country.

Savage, whose conservative daily show can be heard on radio stations across America, lashed out in an audio clip on his Web site and devoted seven stories on his main page to the ban. He is listed under his real name, Michael Alan Weiner.

..."She has painted a target on my back, linking me with people who are in prison for killing people," Savage said. "How could they put Michael Savage in the same league as mass murderers when I have never avowed violence?"

Absolutely right. How could they? It's unconscionable to ban someone who has never committed a crime. Who would say such a thing?

So sayeth the Savage Weiner, himself:
"Only a devastating military blow against the hearts of Islamic terror coupled with an outright ban on Muslim immigration, laws making the dissemination of enemy propaganda illegal, and the uncoupling of the liberal ACLU can save the United States. I would also make the construction of mosques illegal in America and the speaking of English only in the streets of the United States the law." -- 11/27/2006

"What kind of religion is this? What kind of world are you living in when you let them in here with that throwback document in their hand, which is a book of hate. Don't tell me I need re-education. They need deportation. I don't need re-education. Deportation, not re-education. You can take C-A-I-R and throw 'em out of my country" -- 10/29/2007

Frankly, I don't care what bile he spews. It's his right, and he exercises it, extensively. He's even got the right to affect the gag-inducing overwrought "talking about yourself in the third person" martyr pose that he did here, all while exhorting "liberals" to remember the purpose of the First Amendment.

Just don't mistake the right to say something with the right to say it and not be roundly ridiculed as the shameless hypocrite you are...
