Breitbart has the breaking news. Americans standing up for freedom! In the wake of Charlie Hebdo jihad slaughter, Muslim groups in America held a conference to suppress speech, invariably supporting the devout Muslims who slaughtered an entire editorial staff at a French weekly magazine because they drew a cartoon of Muhammad.
These Muslim groups should have stood for free speech. If you come to this country, stand for freedom. Don’t try to impose your brutal and extreme ideology on freedom loving peoples.
That’s why we are holding this contest.
SOLD OUT: May 3rd Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas (Photos)
The inaugural Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest hosted by Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) is sold out and ready for Sunday evening’s festivities. The event is billed as an expression of free speech said to be under attack from radical Islamic groups like those who attacked Charlie Hebdo in January. The exhibit will be held on Sunday, May 3, at the Curtis Culwell Center, 5-7 p.m., in the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas.
“At a time when American Muslim groups in the US should have stood up for free speech and showed the world the way forward, they chose to stand with the Hebdo jihadists,” said Geller in an January email to Breitbart Texas.
Breitbart Texas previously reported that Democratic U.S. Representatives
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)21%
and André Carson (D-IN) have tried to block Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders from entering the United States and appearing at the inaugural event. They co-authored a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, asking them to block Wilders’ entry. They cited the International Religious Freedom Act as authority. The Act allows the State Department to ban the entry of foreign leaders “responsible for severe violations of religious freedom.”Geller told Breitbart Texas she has received two hundred pieces of art for the exhibit and contest.
The winning piece and other samples are shown below:
Geller has been sounding the alarm about Muslim encroachment into Europe and America, and its potential impact on American culture. She has been doing so for quite some time. In 2010, she organized and successfully led thousands of protesters (according to her estimate) in a march on the site of the proposed “Ground Zero Mosque.” Eventually, plans for that mosque were cancelled.
Breitbart Texas will be attending the event Sunday evening in Garland. The Curtis Culwell Center is located at 4999 Naaman Forest Blvd. in Garland. Again, the event will be held on Sunday, May 3, 5-7 p.m.
