Pamela Geller and the hijacking of America - American Thinker

"...Western nations with a significant share of Muslim immigrants are now learning to live in a state of permanent vulnerability and fear that one of them might upset a Muslim and thus provoke rioting or jihad slaughter. As a result, Western dhimmis are learning to police each other and make sure no one in their community makes any "stupid moves."Pamela Geller just did that. Her exhibition of Mohammed cartoons has crossed the line of permissible dhimmi behavior, and for that she has become a target of criticism by the American media, including some conservative commentators. Among the many stated reasons why Pamela should have "just stayed quiet," the main argument remains unstated: she made a stupid move and now we're all in danger of retaliation.The real questions the media should be asking is, if we aren't already living under the Conditions of Umar, what would we do differently if we did?..." see full article

Why Pamela Geller Is Hated - Town Hall

"...This is a defining characteristic of the American left. That is why the left loathed President Ronald Reagan for labeling the Soviet Union an "evil empire:" He judged and confronted Communism, the greatest evil in the world after World War II. Today, the world's greatest evil is Islamism (the movement to impose Islam and its Sharia on society). Just as the left loathed anti-Communists, it loathes anti-Islamists, chief among whom is Netanyahu, the prime minister of the country that the Islamists most hate, the country that most confronts violent Islam -- and not coincidentally the country the international left most hates.But the left hates anti-Islamists generally, not just Netanyahu. They have successfully demonized anti-Islamists and even critics of Islam as "Islamophobes," meaning anti-Muslim "bigots" and "haters." Pamela Geller is now chief among them...." see full article

In Defense of Pamela Geller - American Spectator
"...Where does this stop? Just as Islam forbids images of The Prophet, so too does it forbid homosexuality. If Americans are not supposed to provoke Muslims by doing something that offends their religion, does this mean the push that is on now for gay marriage should come to a screeching halt? ..." see full article

I'm More Hateful Than Pamela Geller - National Review Online

"...I don't know Pamela Geller, and I certainly don't know her heart, but it's simply bizarre that so few of the tens of thousands of words decrying her hatred have actually examined the actions of the jihadists she opposes. Isn't genocide worth hating? Isn't the systematic oppression of women? The selling of children into slavery?..." see full article

Pamela Geller's Critics Are Proving Her Point - National Review Online

"...There is nothing inherently wrong with feeling fear especially when that fear is grounded in the reality of the enemy we face. Fear is a natural human response to a savage and bloodthirsty enemy. But there's everything wrong with appeasement especially when appeasement is concealed behind a fa ade of self-righteousness. Islam has a serious problem. Silencing Pamela Geller isn't the solution...." see full article

Art Spiegelman: Je Suis Charlie—But I'm Not Pamela Geller - TIME
"...Pam Geller's organization is intentionally trying to start war of culture with Islam by saying that all Muslims are terrorists under the surface, and we're going to prove it. Do the group members deserve free speech protection? Of course. But they're hiding behind that banner with things that have very little to do with free speech and a lot to do with race hate...." see full article

"...I am grateful to live in a country where even someone as hateful as Pamela Geller can speak her mind. She can smear President Obama as the "jihadist in the White House" and speculate that he "choked up" with tears when he ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. I am also grateful to live in a country where the law protects Geller's right to say these things...." see full article

What Pamela Geller Advocates Is Not Free Speech - TIME
"...We, as society, must do better. Rather than fall for the fallacy that what Geller advocates is free speech, recognize that as human beings our strength rests not in sticking to the bare minimum the law permits, but in elevating our civility to the highest levels possible.We cannot defeat terrorist groups like ISIS by following ideology that serves only to demonize the other. Rather, we counter such extremism with better, more compassionate, and more pluralistic concepts that are universal to all people respect, integrity, and justice...." see full article

Pamela Geller's "South Park" idiocy: Satire, hatred and the right's faith ... - Salon

"...Rather than attempt to spark a debate about how fear, threats, and aggression can lead to censorship of satirical cartoons, Geller wants to draw out a fierce debate about the evils of the Islamic community. She wants to hype fear, not diminish it. Even though she bristles at the idea that she would be characterized as anti-Islam the Southern Poverty Law Center describes her as the anti-Muslim movement's most visible and flamboyant figurehead. She's relentlessly shrill and coarse in her broad-brush denunciations of Islam. They clearly describe her work as an example of hate speech...." see full article

Breaking News: Liberals Grudgingly Willing To Allow Pamela Geller To Exist - Breitbart News
"...The response from our Left-dominated culture is, at best, a grudging concession that Geller has some theoretical right to free speech, but she probably shouldn't use it. Outrage over an apparently ISIS-linked attack on American soil is hard to find among liberals. The mainstream media treats Geller and her fellow conference organizers more as perpetrators than victims...." see full article

"...It is a sad measure of the amount of Islamophobia in our country that all these people are given a podium to hold forth. The media really ought to be more careful about who they're jumping to defend. Geller is not attacking jihadists. She is attacking a world religion, with more than 1 billion adherents, and saying that that religion is essentially evil. And she's on US TV! Why aren't these reporters explaining this? - ..." see full article
