Pamela Geller answers back

Pamela Geller was the organiser of the Draw Mohammed contest in Garland whom barbarians tried to shoot.

Blamed for having gunmen attack her, often by folk who wouldn’t otherwise countenance  blaming a woman for being attacked, Pamela Geller points out to a CNN interviewer with more hair than sense that the very point of free speech is not to protect speech that is inoffensive, but speech that does offend somebody.

One key difference between civilised behaviour and barbarity however is the response to speech that offends. Taking a gun out is a sure sign you’re not on the right side if that divide. Defending those who do – or blaming those who do – is a telling sign you can’t even tell the divide exists.

  1. Rarely have I seen so clearly illustrated just how morally corrupt our self-appointed "elites" are than this bizarre attack on Geller from the American MSM. People who are exercising their rights is the most straightforward of fashions are shot at, but they are the "extremists"--their would be murdered are "victims". Remember, this is for a cartoon contest.

    Remember as well that these are the same people who are literally ruining some poor, work-a-day, Christians over their refusal to accept the bizarre notion of homosexual "marriage" as somehow equivalent to actual marriage. Of course, this too is "extremism". The MSM literally foraged though the country looking for people to provoke and victimize over this issue.

    There is no depth to which they will not stoop to destroy this country and Western Civilization. I would how we can prevail with such people running things, and run things they do, and not just in media.

    Who degraded and decadent we have become.

  2. Sorry, Who=How in the last sentence.
