Pamela Geller Plays Media Victim
The Islamophobe who organized the anti-Muhammad cartoon contest where two fatal shootings took place is blaming the media for making her a victim.
Geller battled CNN’s Alisyn Camerota over whether the incendiary event had provoked violence.
“Increasingly, we’re abridging our freedoms so as not to offend savages,” Geller alleged. “The very idea that if something offends me, or I’m insulted by something I’ll kill you and somehow this is okay with members of the elite media, and academia, is outrageous.”
Camerota read from the keynote speech given at the event disparaging Islam. Geller has made a career of warning of the “Islamization” of America; the Southern Poverty Law Center lists her as an extremist.
“He’s entitled to his opinion, end of story,” Geller said. “So what? So he said that. And frankly, what he said was true…The fact is that we need to have this discussion, there’s a problem in Islam.”
