I am deeply touched and honored by Jim Hoft’s eloquent and impassioned tribute. And of course, so very much of what he says about me here applies to him as well. Jim unwittingly became the flashpoint of my imbroglio with CPAC last week. After leftists such as Chelsea Clinton, Paul Krugman and others started going after Jim and his Gateway Pundit site for noting, as so many others did, that the Florida pro-gun control students appeared coached, CPAC demanded I drop him from the panel I had conceptualized and for which I had gathered speakers.
There was never any question that I would do that, and not just because Gateway was staking out a perfectly reasonable position vis-a-vis the Florida students, but also because it is essential that conservatives stop jumping to do the bidding of the left, and start defending their own, the way the left does. Instead, of course, CPAC stole the panel I had originated and presented it as their own. It was a revealing incident in numerous ways. In moments of crisis, large and small, you see what people are made of, and I saw this past week what many, many people were made of. It was usually not a pretty sight. But I saw also what Jim Hoft is made of. Jim Hoft is a man of integrity and honor. I am proud to stand with him.
“In Defense of Pamela Geller from Terry Schilling and CPAC Liars Who Steal Her Work and Accuse Trump Supporters of Being Nazis Behind Closed Doors,” by Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, February 23, 2018:
And if you can, please contribute to Geller Report. YOU make the work possible.
Pamela Geller is courageous American woman of integrity.
She is despised and smeared by the left and the Republican establishment.
They don’t like Pamela Geller’s reporting or tactics.
When Pamela Geller reported on the Christian church bombing by Islamists in Egypt it was because Islamists in Egypt just blew up a church.
When Pamela Geller reported on a Christmas market attack in Germany by an Islamist extremist it was because an Islamist extremist just mowed people down in a truck at a Christmas Market in Germany.
When Pamela Geller reported on English schools banning ‘The Three Little Pigs’ booklets, it was because ‘The Three Little Pigs’ was banned in English schools who feared the disapproval of Muslims.
Pamela Geller reports the truth.
And liberals and GOP elites don’t like this.Pamela is blocked by CPAC elites because she is described as a “fringe” activist.
This year Pamela Geller tried once again to sponsor a panel at CPAC.
I know for a fact that CPAC does not want Pamela at their conference.
On Monday night CPAC officials finally agreed to allow Pamela Geller to hold a break-out session.
But they announced after the agenda was already published.
They were embarrassed.
Pamela not only organized the most talked about panel at CPAC but the most important panel.
Tech giants are taking away our freedoms and stifling conservative voices.
Pamela organized the this extremely important session with the following leaders:
Pamela Geller, Editor and Publisher, Geller Report, President, American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and author of Fatwa: Hunted in America
James Damore, Google whistleblower
Harmeet K. Dhillon, renowned free speech attorney
Dan Gainor, Vice President for Business and Culture, Media Research Center
Jim Hoft, Editor-in-Chief, Gateway Pundit
James O’Keefe, Project Veritas
Marlene Jaeckel, Tech Entrepreneur
Pamela put this panel together — NOT CPAC.
CPAC was embarrassed.
CPAC does not know anything about this issue and CPAC does not care about this issue.
Then on Tuesday CPAC kicked me (Jim Hoft) off the panel because of an article by TGP’s Lucian Wintrich that upset the elites.
Lucian correctly pointed out that one of the student anti-gun, anti-Trump activist leaders in Parkland, Florida has a father in the FBI and that there was video of him that “appeared” to show him being coached.
The entire liberal media and Chelsea Clinton thought this was an outrageous attack. They haven’t yet explained why.
After The Gateway Pundit took direct fire for 24 hours most of the country agreed with us and CPAC kicked me off the panel.
I also know from sources that the CPAC board believes The Gateway Pundit is a pro-Nazi website. They also believe that our millions of readers feed off of Nazi shit.
This is how the elites see Trump supporters to this day.
CPAC has yet to put a leading pro-Trump activist on their stage. Instead they invite the same people who viciously attacked Trump during the election to speak year after year. And in their back rooms they mock Trump supporters as racists and Nazis. These are not good people.
Pamela withdrew from the panel. She made a decision based on principle. She stood by the Gateway Pundit family.
Terry Schilling, a CPAC Board member, went on with the panel. He pretended he had something to do with the panel. He stole Pamela’s work and pretended it was his own.
The panel was held today at CPAC.
There was no one there to thank Pamela Geller for her efforts.
And so today I want to thank Pam.
It is good to have a wonderful friendship with such a principled person.
Pamela Geller is an American treasure.
She is smeared by the left, the GOP elites and the Islamists.
Last month she had to testify at a trial of an ISIS supporter who traveled to New York to behead her.
Police caught the Islamist before he killed Pamela.
I am proud for our reporting at The Gateway Pundit.
We come under fire from all directions. A WaPo writer contacted me today about a story we put up for 7 minutes at 4:30 in the morning on October 1, 2017.
The left uses this mistake to this day to smear us. We are under constant assault.
Some times you have hard weeks but our mission continues. To bring you the truth.
I am glad Pamela is on our side.
Pamela Geller is a woman of integrity and tremendous courage.
