On 13 May Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, wrote Hillary Rodham Clinton asking for help in dealing with Michael Savage being banned from Great Britain for his opinions, an act that appears to be against the law in Great Britain.
[….] I respectfully request that you take all necessary action to protect Mr. Savage’s rights under Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political rights to which both the United States and the United Kingdom are signatories. Article 19, section 2 provides in part:
‘Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print….’
I’m with Mr. Thompson and Mr. Savage on this one. I think we ought to ask these two gentlemen if Holocaust revisionists do not have the freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, either orally, in writing or in print, with regard to the gas-chamber question. And if so, why are they prosecuted and imprisoned for seeking and imparting revisionist information and ideas? Any suggestions on how best to do this will be warmly received.
