Pamela Geller has been running her website for some years but because she’s not a progressive, she has been pretty much ignored by the MSM. After the attacks on her art exhibition, she is getting some airtime and always articulate, she’s talking some truths that have been hidden for so long.
Here’s a couple of the more outstanding answers she gave in an interview with Breitbart. She is especially right about the cowardice.
Breitbart News: Even some conservative columnists and a potential presidential candidate (Donald Trump) have resorted to personal attacks against you as a preface before arguing in defense of free speech. Why do you feel that so many have come to attack the messenger?
Geller: This is the problem with the conservatives. This is why we can never nominate qualified, brave, true conservative candidates. The conservative movement has trimmed to accommodate the leftist media so much that they’ve trimmed themselves out of principle. They attack me because they’re desperately afraid that the leftist media will smear them by association with me. It is an act of sheer cowardice.
Breitbart News: In a recent presentation you gave at NYC’s Brooklyn College, Muslim student groups attempted to shout you down and prevent you from speaking. What does that say about the state of affairs on college campuses today?
Pamela Geller: College campuses today have become centers of leftist indoctrination and propaganda, on which thoughtcrime is severely punished. Anyone who thinks they are still centers of free inquiry and genuine discussion is deluding himself or herself.
