Mark Steyn’s not alone. Stateside, Cinnamon Stillwell has a comprehensive overview of radio talker Michael Savage’s battle with CAIR–placing it in the important context of the jihad apologist group’s long war on many other conservative critics, scholars, and investigative journalists who have dared to raise their voices against the speech-stifling organization.
Time will tell whether or not the rest of Savage’s advertisers fall prey to CAIR’s intimidation tactics, but something tells me his aggressive lawsuit will have an impact. Whatever happens, it’s high time that CAIR’s mantle of respectability be put to the test. The war on terrorism has many fronts, the bulk of them ideological in nature. Giving up our rights to free speech in order to avoid causing offense would be a clear victory for America’s enemies. The question is, is CAIR among them?
