Check out this headline — "Multi-faith group protests Pamela Geller, conservative conference." The "multi-faith group" was six Muslims. There were over 300 people at the Maryland Conservative Conference, but this silly grievance-mongering few get enormous TV coverage and editorial bias.
Watch the video:
The Muslima protester woman claims she was "terrified" when she heard I was going to be there speaking (why? I am fighting for her right to live a violence-free life). And even funnier is her claim that she has been a victim of many hate crimes. Say what? "Many hate crimes"? This woman must account for half of the few anti-Muslim "hate crimes" reported across the country. And this goes unchallenged by the reporter. But the money quote is Saqib Ali of the radical extremist CAIR calling me a "radical extremist." Ann Corcoran has a good report on Ali here.
Needless to say, they gave Hamas-CAIR almost the whole of the report. Typical hatchet job. They interviewed many attendees, but those interviews never made it, and they left out critical people like Cathy Trauernicht (the organizer). Oh, and nothing about the pizzas that the Conservative group ordered for the protesters…
"Multi-faith group protests Pamela Geller, conservative conference" ABC News
Months after a debate over
controversial anti-Muslim billboards in some Metro stations erupted, the
woman behind those ads appeared at an event in Annapolis.
And that controversy followed Pamela Geller to the event convened by the Maryland Conservative Action Network (MDCAN).
Protesters outside held signs with messages such as "Hate is Not an American Value."
The Maryland chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR-MD) organized the multi-faith protest, calling Geller the "leader
of a designated anti-Muslim hate group."
A statement on the Facebook page for CAIR-MD
says, "MDCAN has a history of bigotry against religious, ethnic and
sexual minorities. Unfortunately, instead of inviting legitimate
conservative speakers, MDCAN has instead chosen speakers who are
well-known bigots, conspiracy theorists…, anti-Muslim fanatics.
ABC7's Whitney Wild was there and interviewed Geller and some of the protesters.
