Pam and those like her bring up uncomfortable truths and for that they will be forever hated.
Fiver shrugs and the silence of the Warren DaTechGuy Blog December 29th 2011
The primary virtue is courage, because without it all other virtues are quickly abandoned under pressure and Pam Geller is a woman of courage. She has persisted in warning of the Dangers of radical Islam and highlighting said dangers to a world that would like to pretend painful realities are not taking place playing Jeremiah to the west and like Jeremiah these warning have come with a high cost in terms of her personal safety. Other people get death threats, Pam Geller (and friend Robert Spencer) get actual attempts on their lives:
A Massachusetts man was convicted [in October 2017] of plotting to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller and kill other Americans on behalf of the Islamic State group.
Jurors found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries. . . .
Prosecutors said Wright, his uncle and a third man conspired to kill Geller because they were upset she organized Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015. During the contest, two other men opened fire outside and wounded a security guard before they were killed in a shootout with law enforcement assigned to guard the event.
There was a time of course when an attempt on an American’s life for exercising 1st amendment rights would unite all Americans in outrage, just as there was once a time when the American press would have been outraged that an American Citizen like Molly Norris would have to go into hiding after a fatwa was put out against her (she remains in hiding under an assumed name to this day) but just as the media ignored the threats against one of their own, after Garland Terrorist attack the reaction of the media was to blame Pam for daring to upset those who wanted her dead.
Mind you ISIS itself boasted they had specifically targeted Geller saying:
“sent its Lions to achieve [Geller’s] slaughter.”
But no matter, the left hates Pam for telling the truth more than they hate ISIS so as far as they were concerned It was her own damn fault. That’s why
Which brings us to the Daily beast story that I haven’t had the time to deal with until now.
Pam has four daughters who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting. Until a few days ago I had no knowledge of them beyond that fact but now apparently the left has decided they need more attention.
You see they apparently had a show on Instagram called “The Morning Breath and once the daily beast found out that the hosts of this popular show were Pam daughters that just couldn’t stand.
So the beast outed them and very quickly the network carrying their show cancelled it, the companies sponsoring the popular show abandoned them and even their agents dropped them.
Supposedly this is over tweets made at the age of 16 but I say there is a different reason.
You see these sponsors understand that if it is known that they are sponsoring Pam’s Children makes them targets. After all the same jihadists who have been unsuccessful so far in killing Pam will likely target her children considering them a softer target but and even softer target than them might be the various advertisers or even the studio that hosts them.
The line for public consumption is this is all about “bigotry”. It’s really all about self preservation.
That’s why I think Stacy McCain is slightly off in his statement although he put it well.
No one should be deceived by the Left’s propaganda. Any conservative who is hesitant to defend Pamela Geller (they think she is “extremist” or whatever) is a fool. The reason Geller is under attack is because she is effective and influential, especially in exposing the Left’s sordid de facto alliance with radical Islam. Geller is a ferocious fighter, and we cannot afford to lose her. If we let the Left silence our most powerful voices, what shall become of the rest of us? Who will defend our right to free speech?
Like I keep saying, people need to wake the hell up.
He’s right about a defacto alliance between radical Islam and the left in the sense that Christianity is a common target, but I submit what it’s really about is the sponsors and the daily beast and all the rest operating under the “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you” theory of survival. It’s full tilt narcissism, why bother to fight radical Islam, defend women overseas oppressed by it, screen for possible terrorists coming in or even try to stop the radicalization of Muslims here in the US or even argue against Sharia law. Hell these Muslim folks might even be the ticket for my party to regain power. By the time Islam is able to affect my life negatively I’ll be long dead. So let my political enemies take these risks defending America for the sake of their country and children and if these fools who I hate anyways die at their hands, so much the better.
I believe the Daily Beast did this not because they disbelieve in the threat of radical Islam as they claim, but because they do.
In my opinion that’s why the Daily Beast had no compunction about outing Pam’s Daughters because as far as the left in general and they in particular are concerned, if they are murdered by the same Islamist terrorists that have targeted their mother, that’s a bug not a feature.
This tweet alas remains true
