The Annie Taylor Award for Courage from the David Horowitz Freedom Center is awarded annually to people who have demonstrated unusual courage in adverse conditions and great danger.
I am deeply honored and humbled to be one of this year's recipients of the award. My hero, Oriana Fallaci, is a previous recipient of this honor. I attended that historic evening on November 30, 2005. She was honored for "the heroism and the values" that rendered her "a symbol of the fight against Islamic fascism and a knight of the freedom of humankind."
I join a small but illustrious group of Annie Taylor Award winners that includes legend Rush Limbaugh, author Ann Coulter, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, civil rights leader Ward Connerly, human rights activist Armando Vallederes, Georgia Democrat Senator Zell Miller, film director Cyrus Nowrasteh, Swift Boat veteran John O'Neill, Iranian dissident Amir Abbas Fakhravar, activist Phyllis Schlafly, et al….
I am overwhelmed.
It is an important gathering. Should you wish to join us, go here.

The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
