Didn’t get your fill of radio scandals yesterday? Here’s a different one that involves an actor from “The Love Boat” (who went on to represent Iowa as a member of Congress), his wife, and their campaign against radical Islam that they say got them fired from the morning radio program they hosted on a conservative Washington, D.C., radio station.
Fred Grandy, a former Republican member of Congress who starred in the television series “The Love Boat” in the ’70s, told the conservative group Accuracy In Media that he and his wife Catherine Mann-Grandy (known on the show as Mrs. Fred) had used their WMAL program “over the last several months to warn about the spread of radical Islam at home and abroad.”
Grandy said his wife “delivered a very tough indictment against stealth jihad, and for her efforts she was told she was off the show. I then told management without Mrs. Fred at the microphone, I could not remain either and have resigned effective [Thursday] morning.”
So on Tuesday afternoon, “Mrs. Fred” took to the airwaves on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program to warn that the country will be “lost” if people “don’t wake up soon and applaud” the hearings that Rep. Peter King (R-NY) is holding on Muslim radicalization on Thursday.
“The real problem is that none of us seem to understand there is self-jihad, civilization jihad, going on in our country every single day, 24/7,” Catherine Mann-Grandy said. “This is owned and orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.”
“This is the same Muslim Brotherhood that the President invited to the speech in Cairo, that Denis McDonough, a top security advisor went out to a mosque on Sunday to reach out to the Muslim community before the Peter King hearings and say, ‘we are not blaming you all for a few bad events that have happened,’ like, I guess, Major Nadal Hassan shooting a bunch of people and the Times Square bomber and underpants bomber, and all those things.”
“Those kind of lone wolf things that we try to put together — and media cannot seem to figure out — it’s orchestrated,” Mann-Grandy said. “It’s all orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.”
“If you look at the Holy Land foundation trial, you will find all of the evidence, including a five-stage plan,” Mann-Grandy said. “We’re at three now. You know what that is? It’s coerce the media. The fifth stage is total jihad.”
Grady said while he “cannot affirmatively conclude” that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) or other prominent Islamic organizations had something to do with his firing, he noted that CAIR was “successful in getting midmorning host Michael Graham fired for anti-Islamic statements he had made on the radio and TV” back in 2005.
