Breitbart's "Uninvited" event was standing room only. And I was overwhelmed by the rush of applause and folks who stood up when I walked into the room for the event. It was mindblowing. Pamela Hall was there so we should have video later.
I knew when I said that Suhail Khan was worse than Anwar Awlaki that the enemedia would jump all over it as a "gotcha" quote, and Salon (the hopeless Alex Seitz-Wald again) and BuzzFeed jumped right on it. Of course Khan's stealth jihad is more dangerous. Awlaki is dead. Suhail is working his treachery every day, under the guise of a "conservative" mask. Anwar al-Awlaki was a moderate Muslim before he wasn't. He was praised
in the New York Times. Abdurrahman Alamoudi, a friend of Norquist and
Khan, was also a moderate before he wasn't. Alamoudi was Suhail's mentor
before he went to prison for terror-related crimes. Alamoudi was
al-Qaeda's largest secret financial courier.
Suhail Khan is tightly linked to jihadists who want to take down this country.
Here is the background: Suhail Khan Exposed
The damage that covert jihadists do is incalculable. They have enabled Muslim Brotherhood access to the highest levels of government. They have deeply compromised our resistance to jihad. And they lull people into complacency about the jihad threat.
Alex Seitz-Wald continues to pursue his obsession with demonizing our work:
Pam Geller: CPAC board member is “worse” than Anwar al-Awlaki by Alex Seitz-Wald, Salon, March 16, 2013
activist and blogger Pam Geller said Saturday at a CPAC panel of rouge
conservative activists that a board member of the group that puts on the
annual conservative conference is worse than a terrorist killed by an
American drone strike in Yemen.
Geller said the reason she and the
other panelists — including fellow anti-Muslim activists Frank Gaffney
and Robert Spencer — were barred from CPAC because of the nefarious
influence of board members Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan.
Once again, Alex equates opposing jihad with being anti-Muslim. It's "anti-Muslim" to work for the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights for all.
three anti-Muslim activists have for years accused Norquist and Khan of
being members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents, but
Geller took her rhetoric against Khan, a Republican consultant and
former Bush White House official, to new heights today.
saying that Suhail Khan is as bad as Awlaki? He’s worse!” she said,
referring to Anwar al-Awlaki, the American citizen jihadi who was killed
by a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
She added that it was a “crime”
that she and the others panelists were not invited to CPAC, warning that
the snub is a threat to the freedom of speech. “Free men will have to
resort to violence in the absence of the freedom of speech,” she added
Spencer had his own anti-Khan tirade, encouraging activist in the room to “go find him and take your picture with him.”
Gaffney called Khan a “prince of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
was disinvited from CPAC several years ago and the entire board of the
American Conservative Union, which organizes CPAC, passed a unanimous
resolution condemning Gaffney’s baseless attacks on Khan and Norquist. Geller said she was disinvited this year.
And get this from Grover Norquist at the end of this BuzzFeed story about my being banned from CPAC:
Pamela Gellar [sic]: CPAC's Muslim Board Member Is 'Worse Than Al-Awlaki' by Evan McMorris-Santoro, BuzzFeed, March 16, 2013
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — A prominent conservative activist Saturday
accused of Muslim conservative of waging a "stealth Jihad" against the
movement, warning his position as a board member
of the influential American Conservative Union is more dangerous than
the American-born al Qaeda leader killed in a US drone strike.
I saying that Suhail Kahn is as bad as [Anwar] Al-Alwaki? He's worse,"
conservative blogger Pam Geller said at a CPAC panel. ACU puts on the
annual gathering of conservatives.
"Listen to me. He's worse
because look what he's done to this conference. Look at the influence
that they have had on this conference…It's Stealth Jihad."
panel, sponsored by Breitbart.com, was called "The Uninvited" because
Geller and other speakers who warned against Kahn were not invited to
speak at official CPAC events. At previous CPACs, Gellar [sic] and others have
offered similar attacks on Khan, warning that he and fellow ACU board
member Grover Norquist are aiding the Muslim Brotherhood.
Norquist brushed aside those attacks Saturday.
can't get worked up about it, because they're not important enough to
dislike," Norquist said. "But it's sad … none of those people are part
of the modern conservative movement. They never have been."
Norquist declined to refer to Geller by name.
are always people who try and poach on CPAC and I guess the woman from
New York has several times that she was being banned or something," he
said. "And everyone's going, 'what? we don't know who she is. We didn't
know that she's banned.'"
Also, this year we decided not to invite Pamela
Geller for comments she made at CPAC critical of our officers. In each
of these cases, their ad hominem attacks denigrate the debate and
distract from the real point of CPAC…..
UPDATE: Donald Douglas observed here: "The depraved progs, including Evan McMorris-Santoro, were tracking down Pamela like a pack of hyenas."
