A hate monger?

As you can see by these forums, the general public is more interested in the manners of a coffee girl.

I happen to believe that far more important issues should concern anyone that is not an "idiot".

This is today's news.

"Deadly clashes have continued on Palmyra's outskirts since ISIL launched an offensive on May 13 to capture the 2,000- year-old world heritage site nicknamed The Pearl of the Desert.

Since then, at least 364 people, including fighters from both sides and 62 civilians, have been killed in battles.
Since Saturday, ISIL has been firmly entrenched 1km from
Palmyra's archaeological treasures, including colonnaded
alleys and elaborate tombs southwest of the city."

and:

"The wooden fishing boat carrying 300 Rohingya men, women
and children has gone missing in the waters between
Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia after more than 60 hours
without contact."

The person that comes to mind when I think of Pamela Geller is Joseph Goebbels, both of them spread hateful propaganda about a religious minority group for their own financial and personal gain.
You've got it backward - Islamist clerics are spewing hateful propaganda about the religious majorities of the world, and trying to stifle free speech.

That's how Islam has spread historically, by forbidding any criticism of it in a people conquered and converted by the sword. People in a subjugated country are afraid to point out reasons why the Koran is wrong, so eventually everyone comes to actually believe in it after a generation or two ...... or they migrate out.

That's how [insert Christianity] by forbidding any criticism of it in a people conquered and converted by the sword.

Geller and this event are still today's news and at the Presidential candidate level.


Slamming Pam Geller as the evil appears to be backfiring for Donald Trump.

In an interview with Trump,

Megyn "Kelly also brought up Trump’s harsh critiques of Geller and
her decision to hold a Muhammad cartoon contest in
Garland, Texas — a free-speech event that was targeted by
two shooters earlier this month.

“I think Pam Geller is a terrible messenger. I think she’s
terrible,” Trump said. “We have enough problems without
taunting and driving everybody crazy.”

But Kelly continued her defense of Geller, claiming that the
grander point is about the protection of the First
Amendment."

Pam Geller is disliked by the Jewish community and MLK was adored by the black community--so that would be a pretty huge difference.

MLK was a uniter who preached nonviolence. Geller is a divider who preaches hate. She is toxic.

Was MLK as wonderful a person as he was a speaker? I think not.

This is a decided trashy low class way of making a point. You don't denigrade a broader people's religion using a purposely offensive cartoon contest. What effect do you think youll have on the people in those countries or people of that faith? And Im pretty strongly conservative. But I am absolutely not in support of what I call trailer trash tactics.

It's the equivalent of a white man going into the middle of the Baltimore riots and screaming out "F all N******." Is that his right in this country (freedom of speech)? Yes it is. But the man would be a moron who actively tried to incite an already unstable group of people by insulting them. You bet that he would not leave that area unharmed. What she did was the exact equivalent of that example.
Both of your comments, regarding Muslims and regarding blacks, are bigoted and racist. It's sort of like saying to someone who takes candy away from a four year old "you made him cry." Or someone who mocks handicapped people or mentally ill people and a decent person correctly questions the bully's decency.

I presume that Muslims and blacks are rational adults and I hold them to the same standards as everyone else. If they want to be treated as four year olds and mental patients are, fine. But that is racism and discrimination at its worst.
