Liberals Grudgingly Willing To Allow Pamela Geller To Exist

It’s a distressingly common fantasy that oppression and conquest are difficult, because the hunger for freedom is fierce and nearly universal, especially with modern communications technology, and particularly in America.

On the contrary, the latter half of the Twentieth Century offers many illustrations of how oppression is both easy and quite sustainable. The Internet can be used to strangle freedom as easily as it can serve as a rope for ringing the Liberty Bell.

    Good essay. The author references left-media accusations (false accusations) that Pamela Geller is “pro-Nazi”. Yet if anything Geller is staunchly anti-Nazi. The Nazis of today are the radical Islamists, and the left hardly, if ever, criticize the Islamo-Nazis of today. If anything, Ms. Geller is strongly anti-Nazi, and this is what gets her in trouble with the left-media.

    Btw, the two Islamo-Nazis who attacked Geller’s conference, and died, and the left-media attacks on her today, have done nothing more than to bolster her, and her anti-Islamist group’s, public image. All of this is backfiring on the enemies of America and democracy.

      Ace of Spades has a great rant about this. Well worth reading. Thanks to SDA for the link.

    On a more intellectual level, psychologist Erich Fromm wrote a classic on the appeal of totalitarianism, “Escape From Freedom.” Fromm was a refugee from Nazi Germany, so he knows exactly what he is writing about.
