Dennis Prager: “Why Pamela Geller may be the most hated person in America right now”

I chose this one because look at it!

Pamela Geller – the woman whose group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, organized the Muhammad cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas – may be the most hated person in America right now. She is certainly the left’s chief villain. And, sad to say, though few conservatives hate her, more than a few have condemned her.

The question is why?

Here are three reasons.

Reason One: The left hates those who confront evil

  • Alain

    I would have worded it differently: the Left hates anyone and anything that challenges their agenda and therefore narrative.

  • Old Joke: Two Jews, Moshe and Avram, are waiting in the crowded line-up in front of the gas chamber. Stripped naked and beaten bloody, they are shivering from the cold. Avram shouts at the guards, “We are freezing, you Nazi bastards!”
    Moshe claps his hand over Avram’s mouth and whispers, “Shhh! you’re going to make trouble for us!” Never Again! Pamela is a heroine!

    I remember when I was about 4 years old, watching Mr Squiggle, when the very grumpy Mr Blackboard would arrive and demand “Hurry up! Hurry up!”. And I would be “Ooh hurry up Miss Pat, Mr Blackboard is getting so angry”.

    I’d say there is a bit of that in the reaction: Sheer timidity.×0.jpg

    I would say the main reason they hate her is doesn’t backtrack and couch her words. No “I’m sorry, I don’t mean to offend, but…”, “I know it’s not all of them, but…”. The left only tolerates those on the right that start out on the defensive.

    Good piece, and good on Geller for sticking to her guns.
    edit: ‘sticking to her guns’ is a bad choice of words, seeing as Pamela Geller didn’t attempt to kill anyone in Garland, Texas. Oops!

    Personally, I would wear the label of ‘Islamophobe’ with pride, because any Non-muslims throwing around that allegation are themselves woefully and dangerously naive.

    The left has been like this for years…but Islam really highlights it.

    This is a defining characteristic of the American left. That is why the left loathed President Ronald Reagan for labeling the Soviet Union an “evil empire”: He judged and confronted communism, the greatest evil in the world after World War II.

    Today, the world’s greatest evil is Islamism (the movement to impose Islam and its Shariah on society). Just as the left loathed anti-Communists, it loathes anti-Islamists, chief among whom is Netanyahu, the prime minister of the country that the Islamists most hate, the country that most confronts violent Islam – and not coincidentally the country the international left most hates.
