Michael Graham Fired For Anti-Islam Comments
He called the religion of Islam a “terrorist organization”.
He would not back down.
He was canned.
I first wrote about Michael Graham and it sparked a firestorm of comments. At that time he had been suspended from his program for making what I thought were provably false claims, considering that Islam is a religious faith and terrorists are people who pervert that faith in order to get their way. True, the geo-political climate of Islamic nations do help breed terrorism, but is that the religion’s fault or the people who teach it?
In any event, I felt pretty alone in my condemnation of Graham’s comments then, but I feel a little bit more emboldened now. Why? Well, apparently he went much farther than I previously heard.
According to WMAL, Graham said “Islam is a terrorist organization” 23 times on his July 25 program. On the same show, he also said repeatedly that “moderate Muslims are those who only want to kill Jews” and that “the problem is not extremism. The problem is Islam.”
In a previous post in the past few days, I called for our readers to shun the fringe and tune out talk radio. From Rush Limbaugh to Randi Rhodes, both sides are now guilty in this charade. Vote with your silence and turn this garbage off.
In any event I’m glad WMAL tuned out Graham and took his platform away from him, although I fear that somebody will just give him another one to continue this ridiculous talk. Because if Michael Savage can stay on the air, anybody can.
