She's a xenophobic attention-seeker who is accomplishing precisely nothing with her grandstanding.

Remember Anders Breivek? He's the Norwegian who slaughtered 77 Norwegians, most of them children. He was an anti-Muslim terrorist who targeted the children of liberal politicians in order to punish those politicians for not being rabidly anti-Islamic. Remember his manifesto? In it, he cited Pamela Geller no less than 12 times, praising her repeatedly. What else do you need to know?

To equate a woman who works to restrict rights with Dr. King, who worked to expand rights, is embarrassingly laughable.

Good for her. Islam has hatred towards non-believers, at it's core.

Just ask Coretta.
He was a great man. He was also a human. Most people understand that great people are human, with human traits including their foibles. This is nothing new. Most people have their foibles and have nothing great about them. Whining from the sidelines about the humanness of a great man, would be one of them.

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.
Eh, Islam is bigoted and racist. So meh.

Dr. King preached non-violence. This woman incites violence.

What she was showing, some Muslims will not let you advance in life and certainly not being a woman. Seems most of you are upset over cartoon drawing, but have no problem with her having 24/7 bodyguards or not being able to walk American streets without being in fear for her life, do you? How about the call for her head by an Imam?

How about the biker dude, he and his family are in hiding for what some feel he was insulting Muhammad. While most of you make fun of God and call Him sky-daddy, you are in panic to protect a cartoon drawing of Muhammad, grow up!

This was Geller's response..........Pamela Geller, an outspoken critic of Islam who runs Atlas Shrugs, wrote on her blog Sunday that any assertion that she or other antijihad writers bore any responsibility for Mr. Breivik’s actions was “ridiculous.”
“If anyone incited him to violence, it was Islamic supremacists,” she wrote.

Live with it!

Strange, people think MLK was always a peaceful man, many have certainly made a saint of the man.

Muslims Find Out Pam Geller is Not to be Messed With | Wizbang
Muslims have scared people into silence around the world and Paris was a real warning shot. If you do something they consider “offensive” they’ll threaten to behead you. Their threats are not empty, they’re more than willing to carry them out because, for 1,400 years, Muslims have been butchering and enslaving their neighbors who refuse to bow to Sharia Law and who won’t worship their pedophile prophet. This is not a trait with just “radical Muslims” it’s feature of Islam.

“Speech that is offensive to some must not be curtailed, but protected (i.e., the Mohammed cartoons). Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced. If speech that offends a group is outlawed, that group has absolute power, and a free society is destroyed. A group that cannot be criticized cannot be opposed. It can work its will no matter what it is, and no one will be able to say anything to stop it.”

That’s why the left works so very hard to shut down free speech. They can’t win the argument so just shut up.
Currently 43 Democratic senators are co-sponsoring the constitutional amendment introduced by New Mexico’s Senator Tom Udall to amend the First Amendment so that it no longer protects political speech.
Senate Democrats
“Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress the power to abridge the freedom of the press.” So the New York Times can keep commenting on elections. Maybe bloggers can, too. (Are they the press?) But if you want to run an ad on television or send out a mailing opposing a candidate’s stand on an issue, these 43 Democratic senators want to shut you down. Too much conversation could muddy the waters, apparently. And note that spending against a candidate can be barred (incumbents hate well-financed challengers) and that “in-kind equivalents” — gas money to circulate petitions? shoe leather? — can be limited.
Where does this speech-squelching impulse come from? Perhaps a sense of victimization.

Senate majority leader Harry Reid, who lets few bills or amendments come to the Senate floor, has been orating for days against billionaires Charles and David Koch. Their offense is to advocate their ideas and encourage the election of people who agree with them. “The decisions by the Supreme Court have left the American people with a status quo in which one side’s billionaires are pitted against the other side’s billionaires,” Reid said the other day. “Except one side doesn’t have many billionaires.” Nonsense. George Soros. Penny Pritzker. Tom Steyer, who has pledged $100 million to Keystone XL pipeline opponents, is meeting with top officials in the White House on Wednesday. There are dozens of other well-heeled Democrats.
Fifty years ago, Republicans had a big financial advantage, and few rich people backed liberals. That may account for the mindset of Reid (born 1939, first elected to public office 1968). Not all liberals feel that way. Carl Levin (born 1934, first elected to public office 1968) is one of twelve Senate Democrats not co-sponsoring the Udall amendment. Perhaps he remembers, as I do, the good old days when liberals defended free speech.

Good for her. We need more people to stand against Islam, the radical part especially.

Dunno why she's getting hate here? What is it with Islamic apologist lefties...?

Yes, because someone against a barbaric ideology should always be compared to a serial killer...

Funny, considering his stance, Brievek actually killed Christians and Atheists. None of his casualties were Muslim.

If he hated Islam, he should've gone to the Middle East and fight against their terrorists. He was an obtuse fool, even more foolish since he killed his fellow white folks! He should go down in the list of "the most stupid criminals"...
