Michael Savage sues Muslim group campaigning for ad boycott
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 12/4/7 | Steve Rubenstein

Posted on 12/04/2007 7:45:42 AM PST by SmithL

SAN FRANCISCO - Conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage sued an Islamic rights group today for rebroadcasting on its Web site several excerpts from his show in which he called the Quran a "book of hate" and said Muslims "need deportation."

Savage, in a suit filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, said the Council on American-Islamic Relations had violated copyright law by using the excepts in a campaign to persuade advertisers to stop sponsoring his show.

In the excerpts, Savage calls the Quran a "hateful little book," says Muslims "breed bombers" and asserts that the religion of Islam seeks to "convert or kill" nonbelievers.

The council, in rebroadcasting the excerpts, urges visitors to its Web site to complain to Savage's advertisers.

Last night Savage said he suspects it was a presidential candidates campaign that supplied CAIR with the tape.

Who are the capitulating advertisers he’s losing? They need to hear from the rest of us, not just CAIR.

“Who are the capitulating advertisers he’s losing? They need to hear from the rest of us, not just CAIR.”

Office Max is one. I already told them they lost my business and that i would try my best to get others to stop doing business there. They wrote back and said something like “We’re a family oriented business and we want to avoid controversey” ...something like that.

Cair says Universal Orlando has stopped their advertising. The article also aludes to but does not directly connect the following to CAIR’s particular complaint, but these may be due to other incidences. Time to cancel the reservations?

“Advertisers that have already stopped airing, or refuse to air commercials on “Savage Nation” include AutoZone, Citrix, TrustedID, JCPenney, OfficeMax, Wal-Mart, and AT&T.” - CAIR Website

I (of course) agree with Savage’s comments about Islam and the CAIR thugs, but, at first glance, I have my reservations about this lawsuit. I could see how it might have a chilling effect on legitimate protected speech, and, if successful, could have implications on “fair use” that extend far beyond CAIR.

Brigitte Gabriel at American Congress for Truth (americancongressfortruth.org) has a campaign to actively support the advertisers who are sticking with Savage.

He (Savage) has the right to spew hate, but he doesn't have the right to be subsidized by the American consumer," Hooper said.

I'm going to patronize as many of Savage's sponsors as possible. That is my right, as it also also my right--and obligation--to keep my country free from creeping dhimmitude.

I'd like to ask Hooper if he thinks what Savage says is "hate", what he would call thousands of his co-religionists in the streets, armed with swords, calling for the death of an English schoolteacher. That's just one example out of many that I'd like to ask him about.

Good, the islammunists are telling real Americans where to stop shopping. Maybe we need a website telling us which advertisers are willing to stand up for the truth about islammofacism.

I've never listened to Savage, but he happens to be right about the Qur'an.

CAIR's days are numbered anyway.

This terrorist group must be stopped! CAIR is the group behind the flying imams. They sued the passengers who were frightened by the imams suspicious behavior.

Whether you like Savage or not is not the issue. We can't let a terrorist group, who stated they want shariah law in the US, get away with silencing free speech.

We are not in a stalinist nation.

Please take the time to contact the companies that pulled out of the Savage Nation and let them know you will no longer buy from them.

Here's a copy of the return e-mail I got when I told Office Max that I and MANY others would not do business with them anymore.

OfficeMax advertises to inspire and motivate our customers to do their best work. We seek environments that best support these advertising goals. Advertising environments that are controversial or polarize segments of our communities are not the most conducive for our goals. OfficeMax customers - and our associates - represent a broad and diverse community. We will not knowingly discriminate any groups or individuals on the basis of race, religion or heritage. OfficeMax, Inc.
