Watchdog lists anti-Islamic blogger’s organization as hate group

Published

on

Blogger Pamela Geller was at the center of a long-running controversy last summer when she helped ignite a firestorm of protest against the establishment of an Islamic cultural center a few blocks away from the former site of the World Trade Center.

Now her Stop the Islamicization of America has been listed as an anti-Muslim hate group in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s annual roundup of extremist organizations, alongside Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.

As described at the website of another one of her projects, Freedom Defense Initiative, Geller “is the founder and publisher of the acclaimed news and commentary blog AtlasShrugs.com. She is also a regular columnist for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government and Big Journalism, as well as for Newsmax. Geller is the author (with Robert Spencer) of the soon-to-be-released book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (foreword by Ambassador John Bolton).

But one blogger’s roundup of Geller’s greatest hits is not so flattering. “What do you get when you combine the most outlandish gaffes of Anne Coulter, the most awkward monologues of Sarah Palin, the senility of the crazy McCain Lady, filter any remaining logic out of it and give it a keyboard in the Bronx?” Loonwatch asked. “The answer is the looniest blogger ever: Pamela Geller … Pam has the distinction of being the originator and pusher of some of the most vile and obscene conspiracy theories on the internet.”

Among her other conspiracy theories, Geller promoted the claim that Barack Obama went to Pakistan in the 1980’s to buy drugs but came back as a committed jihadist and that he is the illegitimate son of Malcolm X.

Geller responded to her designation as a hate group by insisting that her organization is actually “a human rights group” and charging that the “uber left” SPLC has “failed to address the greatest threat to our national security.”

“And these people are taken seriously?” Geller asked “This is the morally inverted state of the world.”

"Producer and activist Andrew Duncan bought 300 tickets to tonight's Nets vs Raptors game and is hosting hundreds of Chinese pro-Democracy activists to protest the NBA," New York magazine correspondent Yashar Ali reported Friday. "They're all wearing 'Stand With Hong Kong' T-shirts."

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Mick Mulvaney, his acting White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Atlantic reported Friday.

"Mick Mulvaney's job was in danger even before his disastrous press conference yesterday, and his equally disastrous attempt to walk that performance back," The Atlantic reported. "The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."

Michael Moore predicts Mick Mulvaney will get into Heaven after confessing Trump’s quid pro quo

Published

on

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore predicted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife during a Friday interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney admitting Trump's quid pro quo while seeking foreign election assistance from Ukraine.

"This man obviously is going to be admitted into Heaven," Moore said. "You know, he told the truth."

"If there was a movie version of this, somebody stuck him with a needle just before he walked out onto the stage there, a truth serum needle, and he just went on and on saying, 'Yeah, that’s what we do. Yeah, of course.' Essentially admitting there is a quid pro quo. In fact, there are many quid pro quos."
