Michael Savage takes to the airwaves daily during his popular talk show "Savage Nation". Now, Savage will be taking it to the courts to stop copyright infringement against a familiar adversary.
Savage has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the Council on Islamic-American Relations, and has accused the organization of being a "political vehicle of international terrorism" that seeks to do "material harm to those voices who speak against the violent agenda of CAIR's clients."Anyone familiar with CAIR knows that the organization is familiar witht the American legal system. CAIR has famously filed suits against bloggers who disagree with their views.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in California, seeks damages equal to the ongoing donations from CAIR supporters "who expect CAIR to act in this manner in exchange for continuing financial support" as well as "actual damages according to proof."
CAIR has yet to emerge victorious in the courts, but the legal expenses incurred by bloggers many times serve to dampen criticism of the Hamas-connected front group.
Now, CAIR is on the receiving end of a suit and it will be interesting to see if their uninspiring legal won-lost record is improved.
A spokesman for Savage indicated the top-rated talk show host would have no further comment, saying the text of the lawsuit itself would answer questions.There's no love lost between either Savage or CAIR.
The focal point of the lawsuit is a series of audio clips CAIR has been using in its promotions and fundraising efforts.
"I'm not gonna put my wife in a hijab. And I'm not gonna put my daughter in a burqa. And I'm not getting' on my all-fours and braying to Mecca. And you could drop dead if you don't like it. You can shove it up your pipe. I don't wanna hear any more 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."
Savage vs. CAIR. If it was a TV special, it would acheive "must-see" status in many homes.
Savage is over-the-top and unabashed in his views, while CAIR is no less over-the-top, though somewhat more sly in expressing their views.
