Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Michael Savage is suing the Council on American-Islamic Relations for using a 4-minute bit of his show “The Savage Nation” to raise awareness of his conservative politics among potential advertisers. Savaged called the Queran “a throwback document” and a “book of hate.” I wonder what Savage things of, I don’t know, the Old Testament, for instance?
“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… called the suit,… “bizarre, sloppy and baseless.” …”We expect to prevail based on the facts, the law and the Constitution,” Amina Rubin said.
Its fun watching religious people and conservatives beat each other up.
