THE PAMELA GELLER ISSUE IS TOO IMPORTANT TO JUST SWEEP UNDER THE RUG:
How many ways does THE PERFECT HUMAN BEING . . . AKA – Bill O’Reilly of FOX News, want to find approbation for attacking Pamela Geller?
He was WRONG the first time, the second time, and will be WRONG every other time he piles-on and throws mud at Pamela Geller.
TALK ABOUT DOUBLING DOWN:
Everyone who disagrees with Pamela Geller is missing the point ENTIRELY, because it’s not about her, but rather, it’s about every American’s right to FREE SPEECH.
Geller held a Contest to make a point . . . THAT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IS ALIVE AND WELL IN AMERICA – or at least so she thought, until two Islamists tried to MURDER her, and whomever else they could MURDER at her event, because they didn’t like what she promoted, WITH THE CONVOLUTED APPROBATION OF THE MEDIA . . . INCLUDING MANY ON FOX NEWS.
IN OTHER WORDS . . . according to the logic of Bill O’Reilly and others like him, the only reason for the attempted slaughter of a group of Americans at the hands of ARMED TO THE TEETH MOSLEMS, was because a few Americans got together to paint some cartoons of Mohamed, for the EXCLUSIVE purpose of expressing their commitment to the FIRST AMENDMENT. SO IT WAS THE FAULT OF FREE AMERICANS.
What O’Reilly and others in the Media have done . . . is to make Pamela Geller GUILTY for doing what every American should be able to do without FEAR, THREAT, OR RISK.
I’M TAKING ALL OF THIS PERSONALLY AND VERY SERIOUSLY – BECAUSE . . .
1 – Everyone who believes in FREEDOM should be taking this seriously . . . VERY SERIOUSLY, because without the FIRST AMENDMENT THERE IS NO FREEDOM.
2 – I’m sick and tired of people who think they know better for others – than others know for themselves.
And I am becoming less impressed with FOX News and their HOG WASH about Fair and Balanced every day, especially when seeing Geraldo Rivera, just before 8:30 Friday Morning (May 8, 2015), saying how he “FEELS DIRTY” after hearing Pamela Geller speak.
Or how he compared Geller in the same conversation to Nazis and Skin Heads.
3 – I also have no use for people who think they’re so much smarter than everyone else because they have a bigger microphone and a better vocabulary.
4 – And if Pamela Geller is GUILTY of abusing FREE SPEECH . . . THEN SO AM I, because, I INVITED and PAID Geller to speak FREELY in front of the Pledge Ride last Labor Day Week (2014) in Boca Raton – WITHOUT PRECONDITIONS.
SO HOW GUILTY DOES THAT MAKE ME?. . . AND I WOULD INVITE HER AGAIN.
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE:
No one in a truly FREE Society should ever apologize . . . or feel the need to apologize for telling the TRUTH – NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE TRUTH CAN HURT.
AND FOR THE FOLK WHO WANT TO PILE ONTO GELLER:
SHE’S AN EASY TARGET FOR MEDIA BULLIES. She’s not rich and surrounded by bodyguards like the Media Stars. She doesn’t have a popular radio or television show. And she’s not financed by a large corporation, or by a rich benefactor who can make her life easier and SAFER.
While the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera have been raking it in by living off their OPINIONS, Pamela Geller has been living on the edge, fighting to keep Islam and SHARIA from becoming part of the American culture, while doing whatever she could . . . and can to preserve American FREEDOMS while keeping herself safe.
IF YOU’RE NOT WITH PAMELA GELLER ON THIS ISSUE – YOU’RE NOT WITH ME.
