Skip to comments.Free Speech Defeat: Fred Grandy Show Cancelled for Speaking About Islam

More sharia (Islamic law): this is enforcement of blasphemy laws, do not insult Islam. How much more of our freedoms are we going to allow them to seize?

WMAL management has caved to CAIR once again! Fred Grandy is off-the-air because he told the truth about jihadists working within America to destroy our government and subjugate all Americans to Islam.

Fred Grandy (ex-actor and ex-congressman) regularly informed his audience of the jihad, Sharia and the attacks on western civilization. His wife, Mrs. Fred appeared every Friday. Fred has had Carolyn Glick, Brigitte Gabriel, Pamela Geller, Noni Darwish, Walid Phares and others on.
Last Friday, Mrs. Fred talked about Obama talking Taqqiya. I looked for the podcast to send around but it never appeared on line. I think this was the last straw for WMAL. His podcasts can be found at http://www.wmal.com/sectional.asp?id=35315
Fred Grandy asked that letters of support be sent to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stand by for further Atlas action on this.

I heard his words of warning on his show this morning: he said that station management had ordered him and his wife to stop talking about radical Islam, but he would not do so. Obviously they canned him as soon as he got off the air.
They fired Michael Graham a few years ago because CAIR demanded that they do so, and Michael refused to capitulate or apologize, much less stop talking about Islam. Apparently we are no longer allowed to annoy CAIR. Everything Fred and Mrs Grandy have warned us about is true—shariah is creeping over the land.
WMAL radio is DC area, right? Where Muslims are staging a major pro-sharia demonstration. Tomorrow, isn't it? WMAL fired Fred for one reason. Fear.
I listen to WMAL on my phone here in Memphis for Rush, Sean and Mark, because it seems to stream well. Never heard Gandy even though they were advertising for him just hours ago.
I’d like Fred to move back to Iowa and run against Dung Heap Harkin.
Fred is fabulous—funny, wise, witty, literate, kind. His wife is a fireball, full of passion on the subject of Islam as well as full of good research. Fred survived after strong-minded sidekick Andy Parks was laid off last year and was teamed with a nice but wishy-washy young guy. I don’t know what the station is going to do for drivetime talent now, because I don’t think anybody is going to tune in to listen to wishy-washy niceness. WMAL commanded the market for DC’s conservatives but is sure going to lose market share now.
Chris Plante, who occupies the 9-12 slot, is also very forceful on the subject of Islam. He was fired a a few years ago but the station was unsuccessful in finding a replacement for him who would draw enough listeners in a well-heeled demographic, so after a year or so they brought him back to great rejoicing. I imagine he’s going to have to make an ethical choice about reining in his opinions about Islam now, too.
CAIR was successful in getting Michael Graham fired. They’re just drunk with power now that they can control an ABC-affiliate major-market radio station. I suppose next they’ll ask for Chris Plante and Mark Levin to be taken off.
Far as I can tell - THIS IS BS !!!
The Grandy Group is still on the WMAL site, still on Facebook, Google has NO MENTION in local media [WUSA9, WJLA, WRC, WTTG], Wa Po has not picked it up, same for Wash. Times ...
Just found this - and it is STRICTLY rumor [theres about 3 posts] ...
I’v often wondered why we(conservatives) dont have our OWN conservative news shows, radio stations and talk shows. We really need to get on top of that.
It's real fear.
Watch the Washington Post ~ their main printing plant is within easy walking distance from 5 mosques. You'll never see them saying anything bad about Moslems.
There have been attempts by various conservatives to create their own talk shows. It is not cheap to do, and even more expensive to keep going.
Ironic that this happened on the same day the Supreme Court ruled that, under the First Amendment, that silly pretend church can obscenely disrupt the funerals of fallen soldiers. (Not that I disagree with their ruling.)
The First Amendment is under real threat every day in this country, in ways that go unrecognized, unacknowledged and/or without alarm.
Podcasts are the future, I think.
maybe trump could give 100 million towards that instead of a ballroom at the whitehouse!
630 WMAL/Chris Plante Ping List.
Chris has walked up to the line a bunch of times today.
I think he’s trying to get fired because of Fred. Hope he has another gig somewhere that has online links I can listen to and enough money to withstand a law suit from CAIR or the usual miscellaneous Sodomite cabal.
Yup! You know that he’s pissed off when he starts off the show with the “sharp-toothed, blood soaked Troglodytes from Hell” when describing Islam routine.
>> I think hes trying to get fired because of Fred <<
Don’t be naive. I’ll bet Chris dosn’t really give a hoot about Fred, no matter how much he might bitch and moan during his show. Most likely Chris and Fred both are just putting on big acts, as parts of their auditions for gigs at Fox News.
WMAL just put the nails in their own coffin.
I loved Fred. Neiman never gets tired of being wrong.
Who needs MAL without Grandy?
notice that Rush isn’t talking about it.
From Pamela Geller’s ‘Atlas Shrugs’ site:
Fred Grandy, the First Amendment, and the Truth need your voice
Monday (March 7) and Tuesday (March 8) are Call Out WMAL Days. From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each of those days, please call WMAL at (202) 895-2350 and (202) 686-3100 and tell them you will not listen to their station until Fred and Mrs. Fred Grandy return. America expects radio stations to be committed to free speech and the Truth. We expect WMAL to grow a backbone and stand up to CAIR and the other radicals. Call early and often.
Then at 10 a.m. Wednesday, we will meet at WMALs studios, 4400 Jenifer St. NW, Washington, DC 20015 with signs to demonstrate our support for Fred Grandy and his wife and their courageous stand against radical Islam.
I’m with Silvie, Fred may be running for office again and wants out of his contract.
And since Chris read WMAL’s position no “religious” reason for Fred leaving, if true, CAIR is out of this. Chris could leave and go, hopefully syndicated nationally, anywhere he wants.
Agreed. This theory makes a lot of sense, especially when we know Fred is an excellent actor! His shedding a few crocodile tears about losing this job might generate some buzz in Iowa to help Fred oust the execrable Sen. Harkin.
>> Chris could leave and go, hopefully syndicated nationally, anywhere he wants <<
Agreed again. In fact, I should think it's almost every local talker's dream to have a national show. And once more, a few crocodile tears over losing out to the evil PC folks at WMAL certainly wouldn't hurt Chris's prospects.
Is it because Joe Hadid carpet cleaning does so much advertising on WMAL?
Dhimmi corporate scum fired him!
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Did anyone get to listen to Fred this morning out of Baltimore? He was supposed to be on 680AM but I cant get it on my radio. What did he say?
When I went after Muslim terrorists and radical Islam on my old show (Clear Channel’s 850 KOA in Denver), and CAIR went berserk, my PM and other bosses defended me and refused to fire me when all the liberals demanded I be silenced. We defeated CAIR, Media Matters, Progress Action Now, FOX 31’s Steve Kelley and all the others who tried to take me down.
Grandy’s PM should be fired.
Maybe. But is there an big cheese pushing the PM?
All PMs have a Big Cheese, but how much freedom they have depends on who that Big Cheese is. Mine was the Market Manager and VP, who backed me up fully. Too bad Grandy did not have one of those.
Hi can you tell me more about the protest on Wed. I live in Pa. but will drive down. I am just so tired of this and would like to support Fred.
