Pamela Geller Exposes Democrats, Muslims and Journalism
“Belief in a cruel god makes a cruel man.” – Thomas Paine
As CNN reported the news of a terrorist attack on Pamela
Geller’s Mohammed cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, any depiction of the
Muslim prophet was blurred out. I did not bother tuning into other network
broadcasts, but I have no doubt that all respectable news outlets similarly
behaved in a similarly cowardly manner.
You won’t find the Mohammed cartoons in any newspapers
And they call the critics of Islam, “Islamophobes?” Please
remind me: Who is it that‘s afraid of Islam? As Inigo Montoya remarked: “You
keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
What’s more amazing is that the very same people who will
argue that Islam is a “religion of peace,” will also claim that the attack on
Pamela Geller’s art exhibit was “predictable.”
This is what happens when one ideology has a near monopoly
on mass media. They get intellectually complacent.
In the 1990’s, a controversy erupted after the National
Endowment for the Arts funded several blasphemous, anti-Christian art
exhibitions. After North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms vowed to strip funding
from the NEA budget, the New York Times childishly called Helms “Senator
Know-Nothing” and argued that offensive art was so essential to free speech
that government should subsidize it.
But when it’s Pamela Geller defending the First Amendment,
elite opinion has no use for her efforts.
The government will
subsidize art that offends Christians but will not provide security for Pamela
