Recently San Francisco Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval and the moronic SF Board of Supervisors proposed and will soon vote on a resolution:
The City and County of San Francisco values the dignity of all its residents, regardless of immigration status, and makes every affirmative effort to ensure that all San Franciscans live in safety, free from discrimination.
RESOLUTION CONDEMNING DEFAMATORY LANGUAGE USED BY RADIO PERSONALITY MICHAEL SAVAGE AGAINST THE IMMIGRANT COMMUNITY.
WHEREAS, The City and County of San Francisco values the dignity of all its residents, regardless of immigration status, and makes every affirmative effort to ensure that all San Franciscans live in safety, free from discrimination; and
WHEREAS, The Board of Supervisors, in support of the weeklong student fast advocating immigration reform, passed Res. No. 0379-07 which commended R.I.S.E., and others involved in the demonstration, for their dedication to improving the lives of the immigrant community in America.
WHEREAS, Radio personality Michael Savage, in his program "Savage Nation," urged the death of those students by declaring that the demonstrators should "fast until they starve to death"; and

RESOLVED, That the Board of Supervisors condemns Michael Savage’s comments against the immigrant community; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That this speech is deemed by the Board as symbolic of hatred and racism which is neither endorsed nor tolerated by the City and County of San Francisco; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That in so doing, the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco affirms its tolerance, respect, and commitment to the immigrant community.
Sandoval is using his position as a government official to encourage a large group of illegal immigrants to protest against radio talk show host Michael Savage in an attempt to get him terminated from his job and off the air. Click here to read the story at WorldNetDaily.
Now you ask why does Sandoval have it in for Michael Savage? That's easy and I can tell you because this political independent thirtysomething gal listens to the Savage Nation radio program every night.
It's because of Dr. Savage's firm stance against illegal immigration and those who break the law by supporting it (namely the mayor of San Francisco who supports the protection of illegals and has prevented law enforcement from apprehending illegals).
Sandoval says that Dr. Savage is anti-immigrant. He is lying.
Michael Savage is not anti-immigration, for crying out loud, he's the son of an immigrant and often boasts proudly of his heritage. Like many of us, millions of us, Dr. Savage is against illegal immigration, he is against government sanctioning of illegal immigrants, he is against the use of taxpayer dollars to support illegal immigration in any way, shape, or form. He believes our government has a duty to uphold the law which very clearly states that illegal immigration is a crime and that supporting or aiding in it is a crime too. Just like us, he wants our government to do its job--protect our borders and enforce the law.
By attacking Michael Savage, the City and County government of San Francisco is clearly waging war on the First Amendment. Sandoval and the City of San Francisco have clearly violated the Constitutional rights of an American citizen. And whether you live in San Francisco or not, this is huge because when a government entity in this country wages war on free speech, they are waging war on all of us as individuals.
We must come together in this. It doesn't matter whether or not you listen to the Savage Nation or whether or not you like Michael Savage. Neither is the issue. What is the issue is defense of free speech. We cannot allow any government entity in this country to attempt to abolish free speech.
You can start by emailing Michael Savage and supporting his fight against government tyranny and an attempt to silence free speech.
You can also email or call Gerardo Sandoval at GERARDO.SANDOVAL@SFGOV.ORG or at 415-554-6975. And while you're at it, how about a call to the ACLU urging them to support Dr. Savage in his quest to protect not just his right to free speech but OURS too!
Remember, right now this may be way out west in San Francisco, but it could easily end up in your hometown!
