Michael Savage Sues CAIR

Michael Savage has filed a lawsuit against the Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR this week. While the crux of the suit alleges copyright infringement by CAIR, accusing them of using edited clips of Savage's radio program to induce his sponsors to pull their advertising from his program, I think that the true goal of this suit two-fold: To stop CAIR from using lawsuits to silence opposition to their Islamist agenda, and to expose CAIR's financial ties to Islamic terror organizations.

Noted liberal civil rights attorney Daniel Horowitz is representing Dr. Savage.

I love Michael, agree with him 90% of the time, and have donated to his defense fund, but I have to say that even I am turned off by his rhetoric some days... like when he says we should deploy the Army on the Mexican border with shoot-to-kill orders, intern Muslims in camps, and round up Liberals and Neo-Cons and put them on trial for treason. While I can't help but sometimes cringe when I listen to Mike, I am able to cringe because he has the right to say what he says, and I have the right to listen to him. I have the right to agree or disagree with him, or turn off his show if he goes to far. This is America.

Even if you agree with Savage 0% of the time, you should donate to Mike's cause. I make the following pledge, because free speech is the keystone of democracy: If Michael Moore, Keith Olbermann, Al Franken, or any other famous leftist personality is in a similar situation where they are forced to sue a group that has unjustly lobbied advertisers to pull out because they don't agree with their politics, I will donate an identical amount of money to their legal defense.
