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 either.

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 Geller.
