Pushing Back Against Extremism
Right wing extremists seem to believe that they are immune from the consequences of their crazed rantings. Not always, it turns out.
Washington, D.C. radio talk show host Michael Graham was fired on Monday after refusing to apologize for comments he made about Islam. On July 25, Graham said “We are at war with a terrorist organization named Islam. The problem is not extremism. The problem is Islam.” His station, WMAL, said he referred to Islam as a terrorist organization 23 times during that same show.
Graham can say what he wants to say, but his employer, a private business, doesn’t have to give him a forum to preach religious hatred.
