CAIR Targets Another Conservative Talk Show Host

CAIR Targets Another Conservative Talk Show Host By Susan Jones CNSNews.com Senior Editor November 09, 2007

(CNSNews.com) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressing advertisers to withdraw their sponsorship of Michael Savage's nationally syndicated radio program because of Savage's alleged "anti-Muslim bigotry."

Savage, on his Web site, is fighting back, urging his listeners to protect freedom of speech: "Email your representative; investigate CAIR for manipulating the U.S. media," his Web site says.

On Nov. 1, CAIR urged "radio listeners of all faiths" to contact companies that advertise on "The Savage Nation" to complain about an "anti-Muslim tirade" on Savage's Oct. 29 program. (CAIR periodically issues "incitement alerts," urging its members to contact various media outlets to express their concerns about "Islamophobic attitudes.")

CAIR was particularly disturbed by Savage's "shouted anti-Muslim attacks," which it quoted as follows:

-- I'm not gonna put my wife in a hijab. And I'm not gonna put my daughter in a burqa. And I'm not getting' on my all-fours and braying to Mecca. And you could drop dead if you don't like it. You can shove it up your pipe. I don't wanna hear anymore about Islam. I don't wanna hear one more word about Islam. Take your religion and shove it up your behind. I'm sick of you.

-- What kind of religion is this? What kind of world are you living in when you let them in here with that throwback document in their hand, which is a book of hate. Don't tell me I need reeducation. They need deportation. I don't need reeducation. Deportation, not reeducation. You can take C-A-I-R and throw 'em out of my country. I'd raise the American flag and I'd get out my trumpet if you did it.

That's the problem with Mike Savage: he just never lets you know how he really feels. (snicker)

Seriously: when CAIR starts to denounce the practices of suicide bombing and kidnapping by Islamic fanatics, they can complain about Michael Savage. Until then, they can go pound sand.

“What sane nation that worships the U.S. Constitution, which is the greatest document of freedom ever written, would bring in people who worship a book that tells them the exact opposite.”

Exactly. I’ve never listened to Savage, but BRAVO! I’ve been asking the same question for 2 years.

On Thursday, CAIR said radio host Michael Savage has "stepped up his attacks on Islam and Muslims in response to CAIR's advertiser campaign."

LOL, Savage can blast away in full voice for a half hour on some misprint about global warming; I'd bet there are few babies getting through their afternoon naps within 10 miles of the studio now after this CAIR boycott demand.

Does Savage’s time conflict with Limbaugh or Hannity? If so, that would be my complaint.

CAIR will not succeed with any proposed boycott any more than liberal groups have in the past because the conservative talk shows are largely funded by locally based businesses whose primary customers are white males. On the occasion or two where leftists have forced a local station to take Limbaugh, Savage, etc., off the air, a competing station will pick them up. The local mortgage broker, auto repair shop, or lawn service company does a lot more business with white males than with Middle Easterners, homosexuals, blacks, and Hispanics.

There are probably 100 reasons not to like or listen to Savage...

This aint one of them.
If anything, I'm annoyed because this will make him more popular and more insufferable.

He is insufferable, way too depressing. But I love his speaking the truth, all the same. This makes me want to turn his program on (volume low) when he’s on, just to support him. It’s America, we can SAY stuff. You don’t have to like it.

Those are the rules, head-choppers. Like it or lump it.

When CAIR whines, someone is doing something right.

In this case, it seems to be Michael Savage.

When I read these kinds of articles, I sure get a hankerin’ for fried pork rinds.

I agree with CAIR.

In fact, I have protested through the CAIR sister group in Saudi Arabia CIAR (Council of Islamic American Relations).

Didn’t really work out though. Turns out they had all been beheaded for being ‘Infidels’.

Why can’t we behead CAIR for being our version of ‘infidel’?

I would reverse this boycott and threaten any advertiser who pulls his support because he’s intimidated by these barbarians. You knew what you were getting into when you sponsored Savage, so if you back out now because the ragheads are rattling you, then you are nothing but cowards.

This is hilarious. Advertisers won't even take CAIR's calls.

I have a friend at Frito-Lay who said he has hung up on them. There are only 2.5 million Muslims in the United States. CAIR makes a lot of noise, but Mike Savage makes them a lot of MONEY. No contest. This will go away within a week.

Let me see if I can clarify something here.

Mr. Savage said"

-- I'm not gonna put my wife in a hijab. And I'm not gonna put my daughter in a burqa. And I'm not getting' on my all-fours and braying to Mecca. And you could drop dead if you don't like it.

I'd raise the American flag and I'd get out my trumpet if you did it.


There. that clarifies it. LOL! I agree with him 100%. CAIR can get the HELL out of my country. They don't BELONG here.

The recent blizzard of noose hoaxes is distorting your worldview. Savage knows better than we do that a person in his position offering even fair criticism of Islam will bring the wrath of CAIR in the same way smacking a hornet nest with a bat brings a response. The reaction is predicable and immediate, with all the resources of the hive being put to use.

Savage is the Howard Beal of talk radio.

That said I can't dispute his premises but after an hour of listening I have to stay away from sharp objects and building ledges.

LOL, indeed I cringe when I hear some of his callers:

"Hello Doctor Savage, love the show. Here's my question, well not a question really, more like a concern: I read about the foot-washing stations in Minnesota, and how some gym has to have a separate Muslim area, even separate from the regular women's area, and my question is, I'm worried, where does it end?"

"Are you worried about becoming a dhimmi? Are you worried when they'll force you to pray to their false god five times a day? Is that what you're worried about? Are you worried that you won't be able to watch your television set any more, or drive your car? Are you worried that they'll burn your neighbor's house down because he's a Jew? (etc. for like two minutes)..."

One of these days I half expect to hear a gunshot at the other end of the call.

CAIR is going to shit their britches when they finally hear what Fred’s been saying about them all along.

Fred calls them a front agency for foreign governments hostile to the US. Claims they support terrorism and such.

I cannot wait for that ballyhoo.

CAIR is using the old radical blacks play book , the Jesse Jackson method. You cry racism at every tun and make people afraid to even say a word to you . Then you can get away with anything you want.
