Standing against big government and for the people!
A group which opposes the spread of radical Islam says WMAL in Washington, DC, has caved to the demands of an Islamic supremacist organization, making it the first "sharia-compliant" radio station in America.Former Congressman Fred Grandy (R-Iowa) told Accuracy in Media that he was recently forced to walk away from his popular morning drive-time talk show after WMAL's management insisted that he avoid discussions about radical Islam. The station management also banned Grandy's wife Catherine (known on the air as the outspoken "Mrs. Fred") from appearing on any future broadcasts.
"It is America's first Sharia-compliant station -- and [the station's decision is] not being driven by advertising or anything else," he says. "It's CAIR pressuring the management of the station, who in turn turned around and tried to pressure Fred Grandy."
According to Lafferty, Grandy is a "man of character" who chose not to yield to that sort of pressure. "And this, in fact, proves the point that he's been making on the show about the ominous efforts of CAIR and groups like CAIR to change America," he adds.
Lafferty reports his group has launched "Call out WMAL Days" to encourage people to tell management they will not listen to WMAL until Grandy and his wife return. They plan a protest outside the station's studios on March 9.
