    It makes me think.
    I find it odd that the only ones claiming this conspiracy of trying to keep the connections hush hush are leftist who have an ax to grind with Savage(They can't take down or ruin Savage for his views on gays and trannys so they are going after his son instead.) and other people who never listened to Savage's show. The truth is there is no conspiracy. You can find this info out on wikipedia and Savage has bragged about his son owning rockstar energy drinks on his show.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Rockstar Energy Drink Doesn't Want Consumers To Know About Connection To Shock Jock Michael Savage

    Did you know ultra-conservative talk radio guy Michael Savage has intimate family connections to Rockstar Energy Drink? If lawyers for the company have their way, you wouldn't, because over the past week they've started going after people who have publicized the connection. They managed to get one guy's "Boycott Rockstar" facebook account closed without warning, and threatened him with a business libel lawsuit if he didn't publicly apologize. A gay news website, gaywired.com, has had to publish a partial retraction. None of this changes the fact that Michael Savage's son is listed as the founder and CEO of Rockstar, or that Michael Savage's wife is listed as the director, treasurer, and secretary of both Rockstar and Savage Productions. Or that both companies share the same address.

    For those who don't know who he is, Michael Savage—whose real last name is Weiner—is a shock jock who likes to make outrageous statements about, among other things, gays and immigrants. Specifically, he doesn't like either of those groups, and occasionally pops up in the media for (real examples) telling a gay caller to get AIDS and die and calling for the banning of all Muslim immigration to the U.S. He's also a bestselling writer who's written several books on herbalism and homeopathy, which is certainly in the same sphere of expertise as formulating an herb-laden energy drink. Who knows, maybe his son read his dad's books in private.

    We're not calling for a boycott of Rockstar Energy Drink—personally, I think Savage is a giant colostomy bag of a man, but I don't buy energy drinks in the first place—but we think companies owe their consumers a fair amount of transparency when it comes to who's behind a product, or where the profits are going. Imagine buying your favorite ketchup and assuming it's politically meaningless, and then finding out Michael Moore rakes in cash from it. Yes, Michael Moore. How's that ketchup taste now?

    Anyway, so now you know. Michael Savage officially has nothing to do with Rockstar Energy Drink. His son, his wife, and his address are all participants, however.

    Consumerist

    Now that I know about this connection; I can honestly say ... I still don't care.

    Michael Savage needs psychotherapy but ... I respect his right to speak his mind.

    I use to drink the purple Rockstar, I think it was pomegranate flavored. When I found out I stopped drinking Rockstar. With the hundreds of energy drinks out there, many that are cheaper than RS, I figured it better not to fund this family.

    That seems stupid to boycott a product just because you to not like the owner's father.
