Now, I’m not a big Michael Savage fan but he should have the same right as eeryone else to report the truth. Facebook is a private operation and they have the right to block him. But they also purport to be neutral in things like this and they are anything but. I have posted some pretty nasty stuff but it is not blocked because I don’t have the reach that Savage does. If he were a liberal there would be no issue…but he’s not.
The trouble is that even though the are alternatives, if you want to reach a large, broad audience you need to use Facebook. The alternatives are not sufficient. Savage (and I) wish to show our “progressive” friends what radical islam is about. We need outlets like Facebook to do it.

The article linked by Savage was about a pregnant woman in Reutlingen, Germany, who was hacked to death with a meat cleaver by a 21-year-old Syrian refugee.
On his show Monday, Savage ch
