A fan, presumably cross about this, writes:
Aren't you a little embarrassed to be connected to an organization that is defending CAIR?
You've got to be. You're a smart man.
If you are afraid to speak up about the Islamic influence on our society, then you have submitted and are already a Muslim. Do you really, in your heart, want this country to become Islamic? (Even 1% Islamic?) Would that be a good thing for your children? How on earth do you rationalize defending such a people!!
Michael Savage is a great man, and loved by millions! He is dead on about the Muslims.
Don't think that you can remain an advocate of EFF, and emerge unscathed when the tide finally turns against CAIR. Doesn't your reputation among people who know you, concern you at all?
Please consider withdrawing your support for EFF.
In 2007 Islam and Judaism's holiest holidays overlapped for 10 days. Muslims racked up 397 dead bodies in 94 terror attacks across 10 countries during this time… while Jews worked on their 159th Nobel Prize.
Many who love you are dying inside from sadness, because of what you are doing.

You are defending racist and bigot Michael Savage?
The man trying to trash the First Amendment while relying on it (justly) to protect him from charges of hate speech?
And you expect me to be embarrassed?
The first amendment protects everyone. Including you.
And yes, my children are better off in a multi-cultural society — it will help prepare them to deal with the world as it is.
I am on EFF's Advisory Board, and, yes, I'm rather proud of it.
Incidentally, estimates of the number of Muslims in the USA appear to vary enormously, from 1.1 million practicing Muslims on the low end (about 1/3 of 1%), to 2.2 on the more serious of the high end, to estimated numbers as high as 7 or 8 million (well over 2%) that appear to have been calculated with less precision and seek to include the non-practicing as well as those attending Mosque. (CAIR's high number is among those I'm dubious of.)
And finally, for the avoidance of doubt, I know fairly little about CAIR and thus don't have a view of it as an organization. I do think I know something about fair use in copyright law, and I certainly do have strong views about bullies who try to abuse copyright law to silence their critics.
