Not only did Pamela speak today today as scheduled, the turnout for the event was standing room only, much higher than expected. Apparently, CAIR’s strong arm tactics aimed at getting officials to cancel, backfired. People are wising up to the sinister motives of CAIR in this country and they don’t like it.
CAIR sent out a number of mailings and press releases asking community members to contact Delegates Nic Kipke and Neil Parrott and County Commissioners Richard Rothschild and Blaine Young to withdraw from participating in the conference.
The alert noted that: “The headline speaker at this event is Pamela Geller, one of the nation’s most virulent Islamophobes. Geller’s organization, Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA), is designated as a hate group by the (Communist) Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which also named Geller as a member of the ‘anti-Muslim inner circle.’”
Geller has bragged online that she uses a Quran, Islam’s holy text, as a doorstop. She has claimed that “Hitler and the Nazis were inspired by Islam” and that Islam “mandates” lies and deception. She has also posted images on her blog that include a fake photograph of then Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan in a Nazi uniform, another fake image of President Obama urinating on an American flag, and drawings purporting to depict Islam’s Prophet Muhammad as a pig.
