If you missed my interview with Raheem Kassam on Breitbart radio today:
Geller: Rep. Correa’s Hijab Statue of Liberty Painting Is Offensive to Every Immigrant Fleeing Sharia Oppression
Pamela Geller, editor-in-chief of The Geller Report and president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Wednesday regarding Rep. J. Luis Correa’s (D-CA) painting of the Statue of Liberty wearing a hijab, which he has displayed in his California office.
Geller said, “The art implies that we’re all subjugated, and we are not, and that we all accept it, and we are not. It’s offensive to every freedom-loving American and immigrant, by the way, who is yearning to be free, who escaped the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth, the sharia.”
Geller also pointed out that she used a similar image on the cover of a book as a warning, not a sign of acceptance, and that Raheem Kassam’s new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, also uses a similar image on the cover.
“This congressman,” said Geller, “the message is that he’s standing in support of oppression, gender apartheid, female genital mutilation, and honor killing because that’s what that cloth coffin is. It’s a garment of oppression.”
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 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.
