By now, you’ve no doubt heard that Pamela Gellar hosted a free speech event in Texas which focused on cartoon images of Mohammed and that an Islamist terror plot to kill attendees was foiled.
Many in media – and not just liberals -have gone out of their way to blame the victim, Geller and those attending the event, and have even gone so far as questioning the limits of free speech in America.
A writer at the Washington Post wondered why Geller didn’t apologize. CNN’s Chris Cuomo argued that ‘hate speech’ isn’t protected by the First Amendment which was so dumb he was even called out by the far left site Salon.
Geller appeared on the Sean Hannity show Wednesday night and confronted the British Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, who openly called for her death on national television.
If you watch the Hannity show, you’re probably familiar with Choudary. Allahpundit of Hot Air jokes that Choudary has probably appeared on the show more times than Alan Colmes.
The exchange is over 10 minutes long but you should watch the whole thing:
Despite threats Geller has received, she said federal security agencies haven’t contacted her.
Daniel Halper of the Weekly Standard:
Pam Geller: No Contact from FBI, Homeland Security Since Terror Attack
Pamela Geller, the woman targeted by terrorists in Texas over the weekend, says the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have yet to contact her after the thwarted attacked. She made the comments last night in an interview with Sean Hannity.
“This is a serious threat,” said Hannity. “Basically a Fatwa, a death threat, has now been issued. Your reaction to that? Have you had any contact with the FBI?”
“They have not contacted me, but of course we’ve now increased my team. I have a team now, private security, and NYPD counterterror has been in touch with me,” said Geller.
“Did you reach out to the FBI?”
“I did,” Geller confirmed.
Hannity followed up, “Homeland Security hasn’t gotten ahold of you, the FBI hasn’t gotten ahold of you?”
“No, and this is interesting because this is a terrorist threat. And the FBI, President Obama should provide security. There’s no question about it. Because he created an environment that raised the stakes on this,” Geller said.
If you don’t grasp how serious this is, allow me to remind you. In 2010, a liberal cartoonist from Seattle named Mollie Norris decided to promote an “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” meme on the internet.
She’s still living in hiding.
