Chinese Top Online Media Reports MICHAEL SAVAGE Banned From U.K. (Translation)
The People (Communist Party Run Website, China) ^ | 8 May 2009 | The People (China, original in Chinese)

Posted on 05/07/2009 8:36:17 PM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

This thing is going global (rough FR translation since original site is only in Chinese):

Major Chinese website, seen by millions, is running the story.

人民网5月6日讯 据美国有线电视新闻网报道,英国政府日前公布了一份22人的“不受欢迎者”名单,其中白人至上主义者,伊斯兰神职人员,一名堪萨斯州神父以及美国脱口秀主持人均因“煽动仇恨”榜上有名。

("According to British Press reports, the UK government has made a prohibition of 22 people to enter the country, among them are white supremicists, fundamentalist Islamists, an extremist preachers, but also a famous American talk show host.")

  英国内政部表示他们将至少在数月内拒绝这些人入境。内政部仅公布了其中16名“上榜”人士的信息,然而他们拒绝透露其他六人的姓名。

("This is a report by the Home Ministry which prohibits certain people from entering British territory. 16 of the names were made public, but 6 names were not made public.")

  在这份名单中最被人熟知的莫过于美国脱口秀主持人Michael Savage,其本名Michael Alan Wiener赫然在名单之列。他的电台脱口秀全美排名第三,这位主持人以他反对堕胎,反对同性恋婚姻,反对移民的观点备受争议。

("A famous radio show host who is spirited, Michael Savage, who's real name is Michael Alan Weiner, was also found to be on the list. He is the third top radio show host, and takes positions such as opposed to abortion, homosexual marriage, and illegal immigration, and does battle on these topics.")

  他上榜的原因是“激进的言论可能挑起严重的犯罪行为,导致社区间的暴力活动。”

("The reason for such list is that the people listed could incite violence or otherwise cause inter-communal tension if they were allowed into the U.K.")

[Above English paraphrased. Will post link to English story when/if it appears in China].

Mods asked for Chinese into English translation. As a Freeper/Donater with 10+ years of translating from Asian languages into English so Freepers get not news stuff they might otherwise not get (certainly through the US press) I understood their point fully, so I now I have new thread here to continue the conversation! ;-) That is why we have this new thread here. Thanks for reading!! ;-)

You are welcome.

It is not easy to do. I am glad you appreciate the toil and labor of love! ;-)

This is getting to be a big story, at least from international press perspective. I am wondering if this gets traced to the White House or somebody else in Washington. I wouldnt doubt it.

Just that its getting attention around the world is interesting to me.. heck, most of us don’t pay attention to Savage.. yet the fact he is being banned, not for anything he did but just some don’t like his tone... Maybe he should just insult the Queen like the Sex Pistols and he will be a hero.

Probably getting more press and air time in Communist countries rather than the U.S. I guess I better order that Mandarin language course from the library.

Ironically, he was unknown outside the US before this; this is catapulting him into a large worldwide mindshare. It is an interesting phenomonen. That UK Home Minister is going to have to issue an apology and claim a “mistake” pretty soon. I am sure they do not like this festering and growing. lol

Ironic, isnt it?

I had to turn to foreign media just to get stories on the Tea Parties that showed how anti-Obama it was in nature--such as the domestic US media blackout. US media (outside Fox) totally "spiked it".

I highly encourage freepers to a) familiarize themselves with all of the main and minor worldwide media online, and b) get automatic translation software so you can follow what is being talk about outside of the USA...and particularly ABOUT the USA, particularly on issue that have a P.C. element which domestic US media wont pick up (CNN, MSNBC, main three networks, NYT, WP, etc)

Sad really.....Btw, Is there a good site to download Asian character sets? So I can read what you post without it looking like gibberish. ;)

I was watching some of Micheal Moore's Sicko on Showtime tonight and he did a segment where he interviews someone there who said socialized medicine came after WWII when the voters decided " If we can afford WWWII, we can afford Free Healthcare "

So ironic, they couldnt afford WWII but had little choice in it, so in response they completely bankrupted nation/UK with handouts, and poor Muslims. Moore's movie was just a few years ago.

Excuse me for interrupting, but why is this article rendering in “gibberish”?
Seeing a lot of this for the past couple years.
Can you not clean it up before posting it?

O.k. I see you are our Asian Affairs correspondent. But why bother posting links to sites in Chinese? 99.9% of the readers here cannot read Chinese and we are to rely upon
whose translations?

It's not gibberish --- the Chinese renders fine on my machine (Linux using a Firefox browser.)

If you are having trouble, you might need to install Chinese language support, a safe minimum being Chinese fonts (I wouldn't recommend setting up input support unless you want to enter Chinese.)

Thanks....I went to do a search on google news and put in Savage. The first thing that pops up is a large quote from Savage taken out of context with further links by media matters.....Never saw that with other searches. Hmmmmmm.
Google news search Savage

It has to do with the font settings in your browser.

You are obviously a busy person, but if you ever get a chance to start a thread on this topic I'd appreciate being pinged.

Some of us understand and appreciate the valuable resource you provide.
