The Alyona Show, August 2010

In a long-needed move, the Southern Poverty Law Center has named Pamela Geller and her followers a hate group:

Manhattan blogger Pamela Geller and her posse of anti-Islamic protesters have been branded a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Stop the Islamization of America was included in the civil rights organization's annual roundup of extremist groups - a rogue's gallery that includes everything from the Ku Klux Klan to white supremacists and Nazis.

Geller's group was one of the most vocal opponents of the proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero.

The group was also behind ads that were placed on city buses urging Muslims to leave "the falsity of Islam."

Geller, who runs a blog called Atlas Shrugs, dismissed the Law Center as an "uber left" group that has "failed to address the greatest threat to our national security."

"My group is a human rights group," she said. "And these people are taken seriously? This is the morally inverted state of the world."

I love the irony of someone who co-opts a badly written treatise for sociopathic selfishness as the name of her website declaring that the Southern Poverty Law Center has an inverted sense of morality.

Pamela Geller's blind and wildly grasping hate for Muslims (inspiration for Hitler? Really?) is nothing less than a mental disorder. It's about time that she was labeled for what she is.
