Tennessee Tea Party Wont Drop Speaker Accused of Having Anti-Islamic Views

Nashville, Tenn. (AP) - Tea party organizers will not drop a speaker from a Tennessee convention this weekend despite calls from a national Muslim rights group that considers her anti-Islamic.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations had urged that Pamela Geller be cut from the Tennessee Tea Party Convention in Gatlinburg over her views on Muslims. Washington-based CAIR said in a release Thursday that it objects to Pamela Geller's presentation titled "The Threat of Islam."

Convention organizer Anthony Shreeve said in an e-mail Friday that Geller will speak despite those concerns.

Washington-based CAIR can and screw themselves. We are American, these Muslim kill 3,000 on 911 they should have been executed a long time ago, what the hell are they doing telling the Tennessee Tea Party about who should speak at their event.

They have pretty much shut up all of Europe.
Why NOT try the same thing over here—they have lots of our oil money to work with, after all.

I think CAIR should provide an artist to draw pictures of Mad Mo.

I live on the Eastern side of TN near Gatlinburg and Knoxville. A couple of years ago two hunters ran across several Muslims camping in the mountains that overlook one of our hydro plants. They were all males, not families. The hunters said they seemed VERY out of place and nervous to find that the hunters saw them. The hunters reported them but they were never found. They apparently moved on. It’s easy to hide in the backwoods mountains in this area. There are several nuclear plants in E.TN including Watts Bar, Oak Ridge, Sequoia, etc. This is not an area I like to hear Muslims are prowling around in.

I’m sure Eric Holder had someone following them that the hunters didn’t see.

It must be a lot of hard work to worship a god that need defending from mortals.

It is like folks worshiping idols made from wood, where the rest of the wood was used to make a chair and a small cooking fire - what is the sense of worshiping something that cannot stand on its own.

Makes it kind of ironic that the Muzzies are so eager to kill/die for their pitiful, can't defend itself, god.

They will provide a speaker that will provide 20 lies to your 20 questions...but if you want truth and light...don't look to CAIR to provide it.

She wrote “The threat of Islam”. That is a badge of honor.

The threat of Isam is world wide and sane p[eople better start realising it before the threat becomes fact.

"This is not an area I like to hear Muslims are prowling around in."

I guarantee you that they were up to no good.

"The hunters said they seemed VERY out of place and nervous to find that the hunters saw them."

"they" were very lucky. Most of the good ol' boys that I know would've at the very least held them at gunpoint until the authorities arrived.

Anything that CAIR “requests” or “demands” should be completely ignored. They are a terrorist organization.

How about “Cair” , who doesn’t care ,Start by straightening out their own House by going after Muslim Terrorists bent on Killing Americans and Christians.
Stop the wanton “Honor Killing” of their own Children, and improve Women’s rights for a start.

The registration fee for the Gatlinburg event is $30, while the Nashville event that featured a speech by former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin cost $549.

The AP couldn't help itself could it?

Yay Tennessee Tea Party! You are right and courageous not to bend to the Islamists’ demands. Not all of us are paralyzed by the venom of Islamic terrorism.

Since when did CAIR get veto power over who speaks at Tea Party conventions? I don’t see them doing a lot for Tea Party type causes.

This just blows my mind.

Cair actually thinks they can influence Tea Partys into who they let speak at their rallys? I guess this just shows how really, really stupid they are.

Islam, along with its allies, the Soviet Union and Red China are the two biggest external threats to the safety and security of our nation, IMO. Islam has been given a pass for far too long when it comes to being loyal to our nation. I am referring to those pious muslims that show up all the time proclaiming their love for our nation but never seem to be able to identify the terrorist filth that exist among them, which IMO, is most of them. This is a war we’re in and it is time to call the trash out without apology.

If the mohammedan high priests of taqiyya are against her, you know her aim is true and her message is righteous.

Now you know what Abraham went through when he destroyed his father’s idols.

George Bush really did us a huge long-term disservice by starting us down the “peaceful, friendly Muslims” policy road.
