Here is my debate with Laura Ingraham’s defense of the indefensible — submitting to the sharia restrictions on free speech. She was so hostile and entrenched that she abused her role as host to ignore or attempt to drown out my arguments. She comes off rather badly, but her bullying may go over well with RINOs and conservatives who share her defeated views. Side note — she says she opposed the Ground Zero mosque, but that was after she supported it. She was for it before she was against it. And she never had me on the show to discuss... Continue reading

This is yet another vicious hit piece from the Daily News, but I thought it worth posting because I was in extensive threat assessment meetings with the NYPD today, and they’re on the job. If the Islamic State wants to get to me, they’re going to have to go through the NYPD. “NYPD assessing ISIS threat to controversial blogger Pamela Geller,” by Nancy Dillon, Jason Silverstein, Rocco Parascandola and Corky Siemaszko, New York Daily News, May 6, 2015: The NYPD has been in touch with Manhattan resident Pamela Geller, who organized the controversial Prophet Muhammad drawing contest in Texas, about...

Just click on the video below. Follow me on instagram here and Twitter here and Facebook for my photos in real time. For the second time this year, free speech and religious liberties are colliding at Garland ISD’s Curtis Culwell Center. Religious liberties? How cynical. Religious liberty to silence free speech and impose draconian sharia speech restrictions on non-Muslims? The word liberty in describing supremacism is monstrously Orwellian. Opponents say...

A century of free speech in New York's most public square -- the streets, the buses, the subways -- came to a screeching halt today when the MTA voted to ban all issue and political advertising. The other topic of discussion, by the way, was the billions in debt the MTA was. The five public speakers, including myself (I'll have video shortly), all spoke in defense of free speech, opposing the ban. Every board member who spoke in the executive session, with the exception of Charles Moerdler, spoke in defense of free speech, that it was a craven sore loser... Continue reading

AFDI Wins Major Free Speech Victory as Federal Court Rules Anti-Hamas Ad Must Run While our Philly free speech win is still reverberating across the country, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) won an important victory for the freedom of speech today as a federal court ruled that New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) must run its ad criticizing Hamas and Islamic anti-Semitism on City buses. The media coverage is massive - New York Times, NY Daily News, ABC, NBC, NY Post, Jerusalem Post, The Daily Mail et al (scroll down). All of these news stories quote the ad... Continue reading

Another huge AFDI victory for freedom and individual rights. The ruling came down this morning. The Judge same down on our side on every point upholding the constitutional and beating back sharia restrictions on free speech. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled in our favor on our motion for a preliminary junction, which asked the court to enter an order requiring New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to run a “Hamas Killing Jews” advertisement on MTA buses. Money quote in the ruling, "The defendants’ theory is thoroughly unpersuasive." "The defendants contend that the... Continue reading

AFDI Winning Across America AFDI is in the news again this week. The Pennsylvania Transit Authority called a press conference Thursday and announced THEY WILL NOT APPEAL OUR WIN. Our ads of truth will hit the Philadelphia streets this week. PHILLY: Last week, my human rights organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scored another major free speech victory in Philadelphia. The court ruled that our ads highlighting Islamic Jew-hatred and the Nazi-Islamic alliance, which had been previously denied, could not be prohibited. The judge ruled they had to run.

Reuters weighs in and consults Hamas in America -- CAIR. CAIR gets more publicity from our work than anything else they do. Always terror-tied CAIR is mentioned with none of the convictions, jihad terror ties or their co-conspirator designation in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation's history. The media unabashedly aligns with the jihad force. Further, they site the the purely subjective, partisan smear machine, the radical left Southern Poverty Law Center, a dangerous group that few take seriously outside of hard left circles. Why doesn't Reuters mention that SPLC members have targeted for assassination people and orgs... Continue reading

Here's the statement from our supreme legal team, notably, "“Across the country, we have successfully litigated cases where government transit authorities permit the Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations to run ads misleading the public about Jihad and Islamic Jew hatred. When our clients run ads exposing this Jew hatred, all of a sudden the transit authorities are worried about the ‘tone’ of the conversation and attempt to shut it down. A word of advice to government bureaucrats doing the Muslim Brotherhood’s bidding: we will sue you and you will lose. Act accordingly.” Federal Judge Orders... Continue reading

"U.S. Muslims group's newest Jew-hating ad," by Pamela Geller, WND, March 1, 2015: They are at it again. But so are we. The Islamic supremacist group American Muslims for Palestine, or AMP, is yet again libeling Israel and calling for it to be thrown to the jihadi wolves. And my organization, the human rights advocacy group American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, is once again countering them every step of the way. The AMP ad pictures Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holding a sign, and it quotes Netanyahu, “America is a thing you can move very easily,” and adds: “Stop... Continue reading

"AFDI Rolls Out Ad Campaign to Expose Jewish Leaders Who Fund BDS," by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 2, 2015: On Sunday, I wrote, “It’s time to out the Jews who fund BDS.” And so now that is exactly what my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), is setting out to do. We have begun a new nationwide ad campaign to expose Jewish groups and leaders who are funding Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns. It is unbelievable but true: Jews in key leadership positions in American Jewish institutions are funding and supporting the most vicious Jew-hatred campaigns; BDS (the... Continue reading

"Jewish Leaders Funding BDS," by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 1, 2015: It’s time to out the Jews who fund BDS. The scandal of it cannot be overstated: Jewish leaders and philanthropists, including UJA-Federation President Alisa Doctoroff; Karen R. Adler, President of the Jewish Communal Fund and JCRC Board member; David Hochberg, Carole and Saul Zabar, Sally Gottesman, Edith Everett and others are prominent donors (p.26-27) to The New Israel Fund, an organization which funds BDS and other anti-Israel initiatives. Alisa Doctoroff hoisting cocktails with the NIF in her lavish apartment is no different from the uniformed Nazis who were invited... Continue reading

The media is concerned? Why? Muslims are peaceful, right? So what's the problem? And why does the media always use the word "prophet" before Muhammad? I never see the media insert "Our Lord and Savior" before Jesus Christ. So why would they call Muhammad their prophet? It's insidious and telling. As for the CAIR rep whining about it being offensive, I find Hamas-CAIR offensive. I find their terror ties offensive. I find their demands on free societies offensive. I find their defamation and libel against my colleagues and me offensive. So what? Contest For Cartoons of Prophet Muhammad Draws Concern,... Continue reading

#JeSuisCharlie "To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men." Abraham Lincoln Last Monday, a Muslim mob in Pakistan that was protesting against the Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Muhammad forced open the gates of a Christian school, smashed windows, destroyed property, and demanded that the school be closed. This followed demonstrations in which tens of thousands of Muslims in Pakistan demanded that the West adopt Sharia blasphemy laws. 800,000 demonstrated against free speech in Chechnya. Muslim mobs in Niger set 45 churches on fire in their rage against the actions. Meanwhile, a carnival in Germany... Continue reading

Texas was amazing. Our protest at the Avenge the Prophet conference drew thousands of patriots who stood for freedom against oppression, subjugation and jihad. “Pamela Geller: Muslims Trying to Restrict Free Speech in Texas,” by Bob Price, Breitbart Texas, January 18, 2015: GARLAND, Texas — Pamela Geller told a crowd of nearly one thousand protestors that “we’re living in an age where evil is good, and good is evil.” Her remarks came during a free speech rally staged to protest the “Follow the Prophet” assembly underway in a Garland Independent School District convention center. She cautioned the audience to be... Continue reading
