'Outraged, and Outrageous' (Lib. NYTimes crucifies P. Geller)
New York Times ^ | Oct.-09-2010

Outraged, and Outrageous‎ New York Times - Anne Barnard - Alan Feuer - Oct 9, 2010

"her influence is serious"... Operating largely outside traditional Washington power centers — and, for better or worse, without traditional academic, public-policy or journalism credentials — Ms. Geller, with a coterie of allies, has helped set the tone and shape the narrative for a divisive national debate over Park51 (she calls the developer a “thug” and a “lowlife”). In the process, she has helped bring into the mainstream a concept that after 9/11 percolated mainly on the fringes of American politics: that terrorism by Muslims springs not from perversions of Islam but from the religion itself. Her writings, rallies and television appearances have both offended and inspired, transforming Ms. Geller from an Internet obscurity, who once videotaped herself in a bikini as she denounced “Islamofascism,” into a media commodity who has been profiled on “60 Minutes” and whose phraseology has been adopted by Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin.

Oh, so now one needs ‘credentials’ to be bona fide outraged?
Lovely.

Even if you don’t agree with Ms. Geller, you should be outraged by this outrageous premise.

Remember, if you’re not outraged it means you haven’t
been paying attention.

I'll take the non credentialed Ms Gellar over the sycophants in the mainstream media anyday. A media that is more interested in liberal politics then the truth. The NY Times must be rally outraged over the flaming bomb thrower over on MSNBC named Keith Olberman. He was given his own TV show to spew his hate.

Pam Geller has been a force against Islamic Aggression and their supporters. Even Fox News in the past has trashed her and others challenging Islamic hatred.

Geller and others like her have done wonders to expose Islamic evil...against all opponents....both fron Dems and GOP

That sounds a lot like Arianna Huffington's qualifications.

I’ll have to check out these links when I’m on an actual computer, but I hope there is some righteous outrage directed at Campbell soup.

And, for stating this simple truth, they despise her. Those who despise the truth, must then adore a lie, and I have no time, and even less patience, for liars...

[Art.] Over the summer, Ms. Geller, irresistibly appealing to television bookers, appeared on programs across the political spectrum as the face of opposition to the Muslim center. Her claims were disputed often enough that the liberal media-tracking group Media Matters called on stations (ineffectually) to stop presenting her as an expert. [Emphasis added.]

Didn't know that ..... so, Obama sicced his dogs on her, did he?

"Stop presenting her as an expert"? How about, "stop presenting her at all"?

God forbid anyone as far south of the salt cellar as Pamela Geller actually form an opinion about anything. She should buy off-the-rack like other New Yorkers.

More than that, the Timesmen slyly introduce a falsehood of their own, to-wit, that nobody believed such things before Pam Geller started irresponsibly splashing her wild accusations about.

There's a thread up right now on the wide, deep, pre-PC Western scholarship that, before the advent of cultural relativism, came to the exact same conclusions Geller does, and in the cited quotes did so more than 140 years before.

See the quotes from Bertrand Russell, Karl Barth, and Carl Jung among others -- not even mentioning Bernard Lewis. No lightweights in that crowd.

Libs will rather commit political suicide by giving in to Islamists that wants all infidels’ head, than to admit conservatives are right even when it’s so blatantly obvious.
