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.
("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.")
("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.")
("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].
I might also mention that I have seen this Michael Savage in Japanese media, Korean media, Italian press, South America, Australia...it is truly becoming an international story.
Keep it in china.
Interesting, thanks for the work.
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!! ;-)
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.
A bit better
We appreciate your efforts on that end of the planet.
That is why I like FR. We have “boots on the ground”
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.
You do what you have to do.
The story? Please explain.
BTTT Thanks for the bump.
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
LOL! Just attack and watch it grow. Lessons for the kids.
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)
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.
Sorry:I was watching some of Micheal Moore’s Sicko on Showtime tonight and he did a segment where he interviews someone in UK/England who said socialized medicine came after WWII when the voters decided “ If we can afford WWII, we can afford Free Healthcare “
