Check out the above video to see Pam Geller getting grilled about her anti-Muslim views. Republicans always get away with it. (Pam Geller insists she "loves" Muslims. Too bad they're also the enemies of America)
You've probably heard all about Ground Zero Pam and her anti-Muslim rants and behavior. She's as radical as they come. Her brand of extremism is the kind we covered in our book, Over The Cliff and it's the type of extremism that attracts her to FOX News, the Birthers and the Norway shooter. As soon as the NY Times linked her to Breivik, she's been trying to scrub her site as fast as she can. Charles Johnson has been all over this story.
Get a load of her latest unconscionable defense of herself and Anders Breivik:
Popular hate blogger Pam Geller has received scrutiny in recent days as the public became aware that the right-wing terrorist in Norway, Anders Behring Breivik, had praised her blog and thoroughly cited her writing in his political manifesto. After a number of blogs made the connection, as well as the New York Times, the Atlantic, and other major outlets, Geller became incensed and began lashing out at her critics.
In a post defending herself yesterday, Geller — who has called Obama “President Jihad” and claimed that Arab language classes are a plot to subvert the United States — reached a new low. Geller justifies Breivik’s attack on the Norwegian Labour Party summer youth camp because she says the camp is part of an anti-Israel “indoctrination training center.” She says the victims would have grown up to become “future leaders of the party responsible for flooding Norway with Muslims who refuse to assimilate, who commit major violence against Norwegian natives including violent gang rapes, with impunity, and who live on the dole.”
To get her point across, Geller posts a picture of the youth camp children Breivik targeted. The picture was taken on the Utøya island camp about 24 hours before Breivik killed over 30 children, so it is likely Geller is mocking many of the victims. Under the picture, Geller writes: “Note the faces which are more MIddle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.” View a screen shot (click to enlarge) of Geller’s blog post below:
Could Geller’s outburst of smears be a distraction against mounting evidence that she might have communicated with Breivik in the past? A post from Geller in 2007 reprints a reader-submitted letter in which an anonymous Norwegian complains of Muslim immigration and boasts that he is “stockpiling and caching weapons, ammunition and equipment.” In the comment section, Geller claims that she provided anonymity to the reader to protect him from being prosecuted. Although Geller recently deleted the ammunition line from her post, a cached version is available. As Glenn Greenwald notes, “If this were an attack by a Muslim group, and a Muslim had something like this on his/her website, the FBI and multiple other groups would be swarming.”
Doesn't that picture look like a normal gathering of youths? Will the media start acting responsibly and stop transmitting extremist kooks like Pam Geller once and for all on our TV's?
I've been reading an excellent Norwegian crime fiction writer, Jo Nesbo's book, The Redbreast, about neo-Nazis. Eerie that I was reading it just as the shootings in Oslo happened. Nesbo posted an op-ed in the NY Times about the shooting.
