Savage Suit Against CAIR

Michael Savage has taking the next step in the war against Terror Support Group CAIR. They have taken his broadcast and butchered it by taking segments to make him look Anti-Muslim. In the creation of their own clip, they have removed the context in which it was originally intended and used this to blackmail advertisers into dropping ads normally run on his shows time…

Savage contends the use of his broadcast is in violation of his copyrights. I think Libel and Slander should be added to the suit myself as that is the goal of CAIRs little mockary…

Additionally Savage should go after their infringement of his First Amendment Rights. Their attack on him is in violation of the First Amendment and they are using this to Financially harm him.

In addition the advertisers need to step up and renounce CAIR. They should also consider lawsuits against CAIR for their blackmail and intimidation tactics of threatingt loss of business if they continued to air ads on Savages time blocks…

CAIR is not a human rights group. Our government refuses to prosecute this terror supporting group, see any article on the Holy Land Foundation and read up on CAIR. See what they really are. See their support for the the Fireworks kids etc…

If CAIR  gets away with this one, then there is not much hope for America. The next step for CAIR will to be prosecution of any Non-Muslims because Muslims are offended by them… We will all have to Convert to Satisfy CAIR.

SAN FRANCISCO —  A conservative radio talk show host sued an Islamic civil rights group on Monday for copyright infringement over the organization’s use of a portion of his show in which he called the Koran a “book of hate.”

Michael Savage said the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, violated his rights by wrongfully using a 4-minute segment of his Oct. 29 “The Savage Nation” show in a letter-writing campaign directed against talk radio advertisers. Audio from the show remained on CAIR’s Web site Monday.

In the broadcast, Savage called the Muslim holy book “a throwback document” and a “book of hate.”

“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,” Savage said during the portion of the broadcast highlighted by CAIR. “Don’t tell me I need reeducation. They need deportation.”

In an interview with The Associated Press on Monday, Savage said he was talking about Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his dangerous and violent brand of Islamic extremism, not about the religion in general.

Savage said he strongly supports freedom of speech, but “it’s another thing to take away a man’s millstone and try to put him out of business.” /**/

A CAIR spokeswoman, who said the audio was not a four-minute segment, but a series of clips separated by beeps, called the suit, filed in federal court in San Francisco, “bizarre, sloppy and baseless.”

“We expect to prevail based on the facts, the law and the Constitution,” Amina Rubin said.

The group’s “repackaging” of Savage’s comments was “deliberately designed to obscure the specific message conveyed by Michael Savage,” according to the suit. “The actual message, while highly provocative and strongly worded, was not intended as an attack on people of faith.”

CAIR claims advertisers have stopped airing or refuse to air commercials during Savage’s show.

Bill Crawford, a spokesman for Talk Radio Network, which syndicates the Savage show, said “there have been advertisers who’ve canceled Michael’s show because of the CAIR situation.” He refused to identify the companies or reveal the amount of lost revenue. Savage said he’s lost at least $1 million in revenue.

The suit alleges CAIR is not a civil rights group, but a political organization funded by foreigners with ties to Hamas and other terrorist groups. CAIR denies those claims, saying it opposes terrorism and religious extremism.

Liberals Kick Hillary While She Is Down

Wow, I never thought I would see the day that Liberals would be upset with Hillary. With the Iowa caucus coming up and Barak Obama taking the lead in the Democratic poles, her flip flop politics have now come under fire from her own side. I think this may be more of a surprise than the Hugo Chavez story. I really cannot believe this article yet, it could mean there is hope for Liberals after all…

What is odd, is that her policy changes for votes has been the typical MO for the Democratic party for years. I guess they learned from Kerry/Edwards, that it does not work.

Now someone needs to tell George Bush to take a firm stance again and stop his flip flopping because it makes Conservatives look like Liberals…

I can’t wait to see Hillary’s response to these adds, she cannot use the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy theory this time, so I guess her only card will be the Gender Card…

The Democratic fight is starting to look like my son’s Pokemon game…

I think the last sentence of the article would read better if it said she was in a three way with…

I imagine this groups ads will be tracked back to Obama… Here comes Hillarichu vs O-Bama-Ramadan…

WASHINGTON  —  Liberal activists plan to begin airing a television ad against Hillary Rodham Clinton in Iowa this week, the first non-Republican negative ad aimed at a Democratic presidential candidate.

The group, Democratic Courage, has accused Clinton of making policy decisions on the basis of polls, not convictions. It planned to introduce the ad Tuesday.

Glenn Hurowitz, the group’s president, described the spot as a modest buy that would run on cable only, meaning it won’t be seen as much as ads by Clinton and rival Barack Obama, who are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on ads in the state.

Democratic Courage is a political action committee, financed by contributions of no more than $5,000 per person.

“We are concerned that she wouldn’t be the best candidate in the general election or the best president because she is so easily bullied by the Republican attack machine,” Hurowitz said.

Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and John McCain have all run ads putting Clinton in a negative light.

Hurowitz said the group does not plan to endorse any candidate, though he said it may run a negative ad against another Democrat in the field. He would not identify who that would be. He said the extent of the group’s advertising would depend on the amount of donations its first ad generates.

Clinton is in a virtual three-way tie in Iowa with Obama and John Edwards. The Iowa caucuses are only one month away.
