    Michael Savage and Rockstar Energy Drink

    The question is, did you know about this connection, and do you care?

    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.

    "family connections" sounds like code for "no actual connection." If he were involved why would he hide it?

    Yes I know his son owns Rockstar energy drinks. Even though I am fan of Michael Savage I do not have a fridge full of his son's energy drinks. I might try rockstar cola energy drink if I ever see it on the store shelf. I usually by energy drinks from the dollar tree or Big-Lots where I can get energy drinks for a dollar or less.

    I know this because I listen to the Michael Savage show. He talked about how his son runs Rockstar energy drinks.

    They better shut down the Michael Savage show then. Thats where I heard about Rockstar energy drinks. They shold also probably shut down wikipedia too seeing how it also mentions that Michael Savage's son owns rockstar energy drinks.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockstar_(drink)
    Rockstar (or ROCKST★R) is an energy drink created in 1986. Rockstar is based in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is owned by Russell Weiner, son of radio personality Michael Savage[1

    That is a pack of lies. Why bring it up in some conspiracy article trying to hint that Savage has something to do with it all? leftist crack me up. That whole article can be summed up in the following sentence- "Oh no we don't like Michael Savage's views on gays and trannys lets try to ruin his son instead seeing how we can't touch Savage."

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    I knew, and I didn't care then just as I don't care now.

    And if Michael Moore is standing outside the window drooling and hungry, so much the better.

    Michael Moore might break that glass window if you are sitting there teasing him a burger.

    Having heard him a time or three, I think the more likely scenario is that he chugs a couple cases of the stuff before he goes on air.
