I AM NOT A FRIEND OF PAMELA GELLER . . . BUT I DO KNOW HER:
I heard Geller speak . . . for the first time at a Jewish Defense League Presentation she delivered in Toronto (Canada) a couple of years ago, and then again through the indomitable Joyce Kaufman of WFTL Radio in Florida, at the 2014 Pledge Ride.
IT’S NOT FOR THE MONEY:
In September of 2014 . . . Pamela Geller was invited through Joyce Kaufman, to speak to our group of Motorcycle Riders (Pledge Ride) in Boca Raton. It wasn’t until well after her speech, that I finally got the opportunity to introduce myself as the Pledge Ride Organizer who made the decision to invite her, when I handed her a check for her services.
It came as a surprise to me, that it was somewhat surprising to her . . . that she was getting paid for her speech. I think she was depending upon the sale of her books to cover her costs, and not a speaker’s fee, which told me then and there, that she was a TRUE BELIEVER in what she said and what she stood for.
IF AMERICA IS FALLING APART . . . THE WORLD IS FALLING APART TOO:
The fact that TWO AMERICAN MOSLEM murder-wanabees tried to create a European Style Slaughter in Texas, because they didn’t want decent FREEDOM LOVING Americans to express and enjoy their FIRST AMENDMENT FREEDOM, was only part of the story. And a lesser part at that.
When in Florida for the 2014 BOCA PLEDGE RIDE, there was some discussion about security because of Geller’s presence, not that we ever considered whether we should have her speak or not, since that was NEVER a consideration, our only thought was what should we do if anything to provide security.
AFTER A VERY BRIEF DISCUSSION ABOUT SECURITY . . . it was determined, that because we were in FLORIDA – A RIGHT TO CARRY STATE, there were far more of our RIDERS who were CARRYING than not.
AND I ASSURE YOU . . . that even though none of us wanted, expected or hoped for a confrontation of any kind, I do not suspect that any amongst us would have had any reluctance to stand our ground.
BIKERS ARE INDEED . . . A DIFFERENT BREED OF PEOPLE:
The REAL Pamela Geller story in what just happened in Garland Texas isn’t the attack on this FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION event. It also isn’t that there are Moslem MURDERERS within the core of the United States of America, just waiting to create murder and mayhem.
AND IT ISN’T EVEN ABOUT THE SHOOTOUT – that left the two Moslem would be MURDERERS dead. THE REAL ISSUE . . . is the Media and our Leaders.
YOU’RE EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US . . . NO MIDDLE GROUND:
I watched an exchange between Pamela Geller and CNN’S Alisyn Camerota, held the day after the ASSAULT ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT. Geller went to the CNN interview to DEFEND the Second Amendment. Camerota went to the interview to ATTACK Geller, and to demonstrate to CNN’S audience how provocative Geller and people who are likeminded to her really are.
IT WASN’T GOING TO BE A FAIR FIGHT . . . AND IT WASN’T:
IN FACT . . . had Camerota had her way, she was doing all she could to paint Pamela Geller and others like Geller (like you and me for instance), with the same dark brush used to paint Moslem MURDERERS and Moslem MURDERER-WANNABES.
However . . . Geller was having none of it, and refused to be RAILROADED by CNN or anyone else for the matter. And if you haven’t seen the exchange . . . I assure you that you should – CLICK HERE:
BEFORE WE HAVE ANY HOPE WHATSOEVER of defeating our Moslem enemies . . . we better deal with the LEFT first, because, if the way Alisyn Camerota of CNN tried to BUSHWHACK Geller is any example of how the LEFT perceives TRUE PATRIOTS, and how far Americans should go to defend the LAND OF FREEDOM AND OPPORTUNITY – This does not portend well for the USA, and the FREEDOMS enjoyed by the rest of the world.
WE WILL TAKE THE PLEDGE YET AGAIN:
ON JUNE 5, 2015 . . . in just one month from now, we will embark on our annual Pledge Ride, where Americans, Canadians and some and Israelis – JEWS and CHRISTIANS alike, will RIDE our BIKES from all parts of the USA and Central Canada, to stand together to deliver our Pledge of NEVER AGAIN.
NEVER AGAIN TO A SECOND HOLOCAUST . . . and NEVER AGAIN to a world where Jews will not have every RIGHT to live in Peace and Security as equals to all others.
WE TAKE THIS PLEDGE, because we know what kind of world we live in. And we know that in this world, there are those amongst us, especially those who we empowered to lead and inform us . . . WHO WILL LEAD US TO THE GATES OF HELL WITH THE BEST OF INTENTIONS.
The Moslems, and others who threaten our Freedoms can miss their mark and screw-up continuously, and still come back to try and try again. We on the other hand don’t have that luxury – WE CAN’T AFFORD TO SCREW-UP . . . NOT EVEN ONCE.
AND WE CAN’T AFFORD to give the benefit of the doubt to the likes of Alisyn Camerota, who is representative of the media and political mindset that will destroy all that the we have, all that we have built over the generations, and all that we have paid for in BLOOD AND TREASURE.
AS I WROTE IN THE BEGINNING – I DON’T REALLY KNOW PAMELA GELLER . . . but after her speech was done in Boca at the Pledge Ride, Anne and I sat in the lobby with Geller, into the late hours of the night talking about FREEDOM, and how few people really understand the cost and effort it takes to protect it, who the real enemies are, and how FRAGILE it all is.
I came away from our conversation late into the night not really knowing Pamela Geller nearly as much as I understood her passion . . . because, in her, I saw the same passion for FREEDOM, that I see in all of us who care and are willing to pay the price to be FREE.
WE ALL BETTER TAKE SERIOUS NOTE – because how the Media . . . and not just CNN and Alisyn Camerota stood on the wrong side of this event, as they generally do on all substantive issues related to fundamental FREEDOMS, screams far louder than what the Moslem-Would-Be-Murderers tried to do in their WAR against us in Texas.
HAD ANYONE EVER TOLD ME . . . just a generation ago, how totally screwed-up our world would be by the year 2015, especially in the United States of America – I never would have believed it.
DURING THE WEEK OF JUNE 5, 2015 . . . I will once again take the Pledge and live by that Pledge for as long as I am able.
AND KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW TODAY – It’s a Pledge we should all consider taking.
PS – I’m waiting for the grief and condemnation to boil over the top, from the LEFT and the MEDIA over the murder of the young New York City Police Officer gunned down because he was a Police Officer.
I GUESS I CAN WAIT A LONG TIME BEFORE THAT OUTRAGE EVER BEGINS:
My saddest condolences go out to all those who cared about THE SLAIN OFFICER and to the hundreds of thousands of Police Officers who deserve far better than what they are getting from the people who could not survive without them.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
