Pundit Press is proud to present interview number 46 in our ongoing series. Our interviewee requires no introduction. One of the top bloggers on the net, Pamela Geller has been leading the fight against Islamofascism and runs Atlas Shrugs. We thank her for her time.
1. When and why did you start Atlas Shrugs?
After 911 I felt guilty I did not know who had attacked this country. And when I found out, I felt guilty I didn't understand the ideology that would inspire such hate and mass murder. Increasingly I turned to the web because the media was derelict in covering the global jihad. I became a frequent commenter on various blogs and so, of course, one thing led to another. I started Atlas Shrugs in February 2005. The Internet was burgeoning as the alternative to the ideological lockstep of the big media, and I wanted to do my part to defend freedom and civilization after 911.
2. What has been your proudest moment as a blogger?
It is hard to isolate just one, but I'm very proud of establishing the Aqsa Parvez Memorial Grove, dedicated to victims of honor killing, in American Independence Park outside Jerusalem. This was the first public expression in the West of any determination to resist the importation of Islamic honor killing into our countries. Also leading the Freedom Rallies against the Ground Zero Mosque in June and September 2010. Tens of thousands came to stand for freedom against Islamic supremacism and the triumphal mosque at Ground Zero.
