Pamela Geller shared her thoughts with us during a long interview that we divided into several parts. This is our conversation on President Trump.
JP Grumberg : Two or three years ago, Donald Trump was not very nice to you. What happened?
Donald Trump, after the cartoon art exhibit, did publicly denounce me, condemn me, he said that I was a terrible messenger, he said that I was taunting Muslims, and honestly, that was in May 2015.
And he was wrong.
But he is a very quick study, and I really believe that if it happened today, he wouldn’t take the same position. And as Donald Trump is a very quick study, I think he has exceeded our wildest expectations.
I am not stoned, I am a thinking, constantly thinking human being and if his policies weren’t consistent with his position, I would be denouncing him. But he is a very quick study and as President, as I said, he has exceeded our expectations.
• Domestically, tax reform, fighting the socialism of Obamacare.
• Internationally, taking on the EU, taking on Iran, taking on Putin, taking on the Paris Climate Accord.
• And a friend of Israel!
No one – and I was originally a Ted Cruz supporter – no one would have taken that embassy to Israel. What a great righteous gentile! I mean, he doesn’t just talks to talk, he works the work.
I’m a huge Trump’s supporter, I believe that Trump is the greatest American president of my lifetime, maybe ever.
And what he has to do, he is this alone man, this “man in the arena”, he has had to take on everyone. Alone. He’s been betrayed in many instances by his own people and you know what? He just moves forward. He just keeps on. He’s a giant.
He is attacked daily. I shouldn’t even sat daily – Hourly. If you sign on to AOL [news] or any of the [news] websites in America, the headlines are always anti-Trump. Wildly, rabidly -and I mean rabid as a rabid dog – anti-Trump. And he takes them on.
It’s my understanding that Twitter has shadow-banned him, and now, you know what? That caused fighting on more than you can chow. Maybe now, my lawsuit [for the First Amendment], and those of us like Jim Hoft from The Gatteway Pundit that have suffered enormously in this free speech war, we will finally be heard.
I understand that there are now hearings and maybe action will be taken. But I assure you, even in your country, even in the country you are reading from, [you have to] fight for the Freedom of speech, because you will win, because no-one has better ideas than you.
And I assure you, if you can fight this fight and win the war for Freedom of Speech, we will win without bloodshed.
That is why they must silence us: because we will win.
