Check out my column this week:
"Obama's Shariah-inspired war on 1st Amendment" Pamela Geller, WND
Exclusive: Pamela Geller calls response to Islamic riots 'a constitutional coup'
While we were conducting our hugely successful Stop Islamization of
Nations (SION) International Freedom Congress on free speech last
Tuesday, Sept. 11, our embassies were being viciously attacked in the
jihadists’ war on free speech and the freedom of conscience. The bloody
irony was not lost on us. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo immediately tweeted:
“We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the
religious feelings of Muslims.” Although it later deleted the tweet,
the Obama administration’s apology for “religious incitement” and
“hurting the feelings of Muslims” crystallizes the battle set before us.
We had gathered on the 11th anniversary of the jihad attacks that
murdered 3,000 people to fight exactly the same battle that erupted with
such fury on the same day: the global battle for free speech. A group
of freedom fighters from all over the world gathered to tell the truth
about Islam, jihad and the mainstream media’s war on free speech and
honest reporting and analysis of that jihad. Speakers from the U.S.,
England, Europe, India, Israel and Australia spoke to a
standing-room-only crowd about the media’s craven complicity in
whitewashing the reality of jihad and demonizing those who fight for
One key highlight of the afternoon was the surprise appearance of
English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson, who was not allowed into
the U.S. by quisling officials when he tried to attend our Ground Zero
freedom rally in 2010. Tommy and his colleague Kevin Carroll spoke
powerfully about how they have worked to defend freedom and human rights
in the U.K., and yet are repeatedly and viciously maligned by a
compromised media. Muhammad cartoonist Lars Vilks (who seemed to have a
Swedish media swarm about him at all times) delivered a wonderful,
clever presentation with humor, art and aplomb. His dryly witty
presentation about his incredible adventures with his cartoons of
Muhammad in the leftist art world had attendees spontaneously laughing
but with caution, concern and … shock. The sweeping advances the Shariah
has made in Europe and Scandinavia rattled even the most informed among
us in the U.S.
Another notable speaker and fighter was Cliff Kincaid, director of
the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism. Accuracy in Media (AIM) is
the nation’s leading conservative watchdog group for fairness, balance
and accuracy in news reporting. Kincaid’s presentation was
hard-hitting, very powerful. He eviscerated the Associated Press and
other leading media organizations, which are on a jihad, among other
things, to disarm the New York Police Department’s counter-terror
And while all this was going on, the riots began. The complicit media
used these acts of war to continue its war against everyone who dares
to do anything to resist the jihad and Islamic supremacism. The enemedia
will sacrifice American lives and our First Amendment freedoms in their
war on America. It is clearer than ever that the enemedia today
functions as nothing more than a state-run propaganda arm for the most
dangerous administration in American history.
We continue to suffer the catastrophic consequences of Obama’s
fantasist, anti-freedom foreign policy. The U.S. government is now
saying that these anti-freedom riots have nothing to do with America or
U.S. policy, but are solely about a video about Muhammad.
In fact, the riots have everything to do with America and U.S.
policy. They are about freedom of conscience and freedom of speech:
they’re an attempt to get the U.S. to shut down free speech and
criminalize criticism of Islam, in accord with Shariah blasphemy laws.
And the Obama administration is responding by putting a huge target on
the head of the First Amendment (and on that of every U.S. citizen who
exercises that constitutional right). This is a constitutional coup.
After the Shariah-compliant tweets of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, the
Obama administration requested that Google remove the Muhammad video
that supposedly touched off these riots. (In reality, the riots were
planned for months, and have nothing to do with the video – they’re just
an attempt to get the U.S. to destroy free speech.) Google,
surprisingly, refused. The actions of the Obama administration in this
are tantamount to treason – he is acting directly against the First
And it got worse. Nakoula Nakoula, the man who allegedly made the Muhammad film, was “picked up for questioning” by Obama’s feds.
He was later released, but could still be put in jail on a probation
violation. If he is, he will be a political prisoner, in prison not for
the probation violation, but for blasphemy. And the attempt to tie
defenders of freedom to this film, like me, is, in effect, a death fatwa sanctioned by the Obama administration.
If Nakoula hadn’t made the video, he wouldn’t have been picked up. These are trumped-up charges. The Associated Press outed him after tracing his cell phone
– he was hunted down like an animal and now may face jail on trumped-up
charges in an act of submission and surrender to Islamic law. This is a
complete abridgment of our rights of freedom of speech and freedom of
conscience under the law. Jailing the filmmaker is more Shariah
enforcement in America, as I warned about in my book “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.”
