CAIR is gloating over the dhimmi ruling of San Francisco (need I say more?) libtard Judge Susan Ilston against the courageous50 million the Saudis gave CAIR has been spent on suing airlines, ordinary Americans and scaring the folks.
Based on this ruling, shouldn’t CAIR’s lawfare aginst Savage be dismissed as well?
Add another victim to the CAIR Censorship roundup.
From my daily CAIR alert:
We hope you will join us in celebrating what many are calling a huge victory for freedom of speech. Last year
during a nationally-syndicated radio broadcast, host Michael Savage screamed
attacks on Muslims, Islam and the Quran.
Savage’s anti-Muslim rant included: "I don’t wanna hear anymore about Islam.
I don’t wanna hear one more word about Islam. Take your religion and shove it up
your behind. I’m sick of you."

As you know, CAIR’s response to these
attacks, coupled with the efforts of other like-mined
organizations, cost Savage advertisers like Sears, Sam’s Club and GEICO
Insurance. He told reporters that he lost more than
$1 million in revenue.
In response to our anti-hate campaign, Savage
sued CAIR. He claimed that our replaying of his bigoted remarks
infringed on his "copyright." We simply believed people had a right to hear and
judge his hate-filled words for themselves.
THE GOOD NEWS: In a ruling issued on Friday, Federal Judge Susan Illston
dismissed Savage’s lawsuit against CAIR.
In her ruling, Judge Illston wrote that the lawsuit Savage filed was "a
dispute about…the protections of the First Amendment, protections upon which
plaintiff (himself) relies for his livelihood and the airing of his radio
program." Judge Illston also implied that the lawsuit may have been brought in
an effort to "harass" CAIR.
We could not have won this case without the help
we have received from supporters like you. Despite this legal
victory, our work continues. Savage’s attorney has been quoted in the media as
saying they plan to file another complaint against us.
Freedom is not free. Justice does not defend itself. Lawsuits are costly.
This case, part of defending the image of Islam, has channeled resources away
from our normal civil rights and advocacy work. Michael Savage’s malicious words
are not only directed at Muslims. He has issued on-air insults against
immigrants, African-Americans, women, and most recently autistic children, who
he called "brats" and "morons.”
