Posted on 11/16/2007 7:29:50 AM PST by ddtorquee
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today announced that OfficeMax, a leading office products retailer, has joined a growing list of companies that have stopped advertising on Michael Savage's nationally-syndicated radio program because of the host's anti-Muslim views. CAIR recently reported that Savage, whose "The Savage Nation" airs on more than 300 radio stations nationwide, screamed attacks on Muslims, Islam and the Quran, Islam's revealed text, during his October 29, 2007, program. To listen to Savage's bigoted statements, go to: http://www.cair.com/audio/savage_102907.asp SEE: National Radio Host Goes on Anti-Muslim Tirade http://www.cair.com/ArticleDetails.aspx?ArticleID=23608&;&name=n&&currPage=1&&A ctive=1 The Washington-based Islamic civil rights and advocacy group called on radio listeners of all faiths to contact companies that advertise on Savage's program to express their concerns about the host's anti-Muslim bigotry. Companies that have dropped ads from Savage's program include Citrix Systems Inc., a global leader in application delivery infrastructure.

I didn’t realize that Office Max was still in business.
Sigh. And I just shopped there yesterday. Time to send an email.
I just sent them an email to let them know my business will no longer patronize their’s, as their caving in to such an extremist organization as CAIR is not something I want to be associated with.
I think in some locales, they’ve closed all their retail stores, but you can still order online and I think even get truck delivery in a day or two. And not common carrier truckes either, OfficeMax trucks, so they must still have distribution centers spread around.
Office Max will not see a dime of my money.
Mo’ was no Saint. Pretty difficult to refute.
CAIR is evil.
I don’t like Savage but I JUST dropped Office Max.
Okay. I drop Office Max. Maybe they will go to Saudi Arabia for their customers.
Let me know the address if you could.
Ditto and I sent the article to the many friends I have in the business world.
I do a couple of hundred with Office Max a year. I sent them an e-mail on their site to let them know I’m gone unless they change their mind.
No Office Max for me. Perhaps they might try to start putting their business signs in Arabic so as to please their new clientelle. Oh, they’ll have to start selling explosives also.

There’s always Office Depot.
I think you guys closed your store near me so maybe you don't care about me. I sort of randomly choose between Staples, Office Depot and you when I have a choice. But I won't anymore.ML/NJ
I'm not much of a Michael Savage fan. Small doses is all I can take. But I'm much less of a fan of CAIR and Islam, or anyone who caves to their "pressure." We are at war with these folks and you are supporting the enemy. This American won't forget.
My sentiment exactly.
I am not big on Savage and usually shop at Staples anyway.
I will now spend as much money at Office Max as I do at the corner store run by Palestinian Hamas supporters.
