Burn the Confederate Flag Contest Announced

WHO: Free Speech Loving Americans led by Pamela Geller
WHEN: June 2015
WHERE: Spartanburg South Carolina

VISUAL: An Event Organizer practicing for the event

New York, May 15-
“What Good Is Free Speech If You Can’t Speak Freely?” Free speech patriot and activist Pamela Geller fresh from her success in Garland Texas last month will move on Spartanburg and the heart of the confederacy. The spectre of violence inhibiting free speech was given as a reason for the Drawn a Cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad event. Two “jihadists” drove hundreds of miles to attack the event. Both men were killed before reaching the event itself. We must be brave in offending anyone who might use violence to stop that fundamental freedom.

“Come to my town and burn the flag of the Confederacy,” said Darrell Mullany, who can trace back ancestors fighting under General James Longstreet, “and you’ll see some violence.” Mullany added, “That ain’t freedom of speech, that’s my heritage.”

This is exactly the sort of politically correct mentality Geller was addressing in the cartoon event. Free speech cannot be curtailed by a bunch of violent thugs, be they Muslims or southerners. Geller, remaining true and unbending in her crusade is currently looking for participants to burn a Confederate flag in the most creative way. She is also seeking a venue, volunteers and judges.

Pamela Geller (born June 14, 1958) is an American political activist and commentator. She is currently the president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative which she co-founded with Robert Spencer. She and Spencer co-authored the book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America in 2010. Geller is the third of four sisters born to the Jewish family of Reuben, a textile manufacturer, and Lillian Geller.[1] She grew up in Hewlett Harbor, in New York’s Long Island. She helped out in her father’s business, where she learned to speak fluent Spanish.[ Two of her sisters became doctors, and the third became a teacher. Geller attended Lynbrook High School and Hofstra University, though she left before completing her degree. She was married to Michael Oshry from 1990 until the couple divorced in 2007, and is the mother of four children As of April 2013 she was living in Hewlett, New York. Geller has been barred from England, which she characterized as “a striking blow against freedom … The nation that gave the world the Magna Carta is dead.” Hope not Hate, which led a campaign to ban her, applauded the decision as a proper limit to “unfettered free speech”.

She was cited 12 times and praised in Anders Behring Breivik’s manifesto. Geller wrote on her blog that “any assertion that she or other antijihad writers bore any responsibility for Mr. Breivik’s actions was “ridiculous” and that “If anyone incited him to violence, it was Islamic supremacists.” Geller posted a picture of the youth camp children taken about 24 hours before Breivik’s attacks and added the caption “Note the faces which are more MIddle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.” It later came to light that Breivik had intentionally portrayed himself as a counterjihadist and Zionist in order to trick the media into attacking these very people, and to cover up his true allegiance to “nordicists” and “ethnocentric nationalists” (i.e. neo-Nazis). In a 2014 letter, he stated “The idea was to manipulate the MSM [Main Stream Media] and others so that they would launch a witchhunt and send their media-rape-squads against our opponents. It worked quite well.”
Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, criticized Geller, stating:

People say don’t give her too much credit, she’s a fringe character, but she is a fringe character who every day is on CNN, Fox, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. She is the driving force behind the Islamic center campaign. I would say that she is the queen of the Muslim bashers, I see her rise and the rise of these anti-Islam hate groups going hand in hand.

Geller helped to organize a “Draw the Prophet” cartoon contest on May 3, 2015, at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas, the same site where a Muslim group held a “Stand With the Prophet” event in January 2015 after the Charlie Hebdo shooting. The same day, shots were fired at the event in Garland, resulting in the death of two suspects and the injury of one Garland Independent School District (ISD) police officer. Prominent conservatives, including Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump, criticized Geller for organizing the provocative event.

Geller defended Slobodan Milošević and Radovan Karadžic, perpetrators of the Bosnian War and genocide against Bosnian Muslims and Catholic Croats, denying the existence of Serbian concentration camps and arguing that many Muslim war victims were murdered by their own people in order to bring condemnation on the Serbs

GET OUT OF MY FACE! The Taliban-like assault on women’s sovereignty over their own bodies continues: Massachusetts abortion law struck down.

Fundamentalism won a victory today regarding a Massachusetts law making it a crime for anti-choice protesters to come within 35 feet of women entering so-called “abortion” clinics. The ruling will have a significant impact far beyond the abortion issue. In a unanimous ruling over the case McCullen v. Coakley, the Supreme Court struck down the Massachusetts law.

Pro-choice volunteers escort a women to a health clinic. Only 1 in 9 women visit these clinics for abortion related issues.

Pro-choice volunteers escort a women to a health clinic. Only 1 in 9 women visit these clinics for abortion related issues.

Once again the court in a short-sighted ruling has endangered women and the public by striking down a law that maintains a reasonable physical buffer between anti-choice harrassers and innocent women in vulnerable and high emotional circumstances. Only 1 of 9 women entering women’s health clinics are there for an abortion procedure or counseling. The supreme court struck down the Massachusetts law, calling it a violation of the First amendment. However, in the strictest application and definition of protest and the first amendment, the court sided with harassment and verbal assault instead of petition of grievances to the government or government officials.

Read the full unedited ruling here: http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/12-1168_6k47.pdf

There have been long held reasonable restrictions on appropriate and inappropriate speech. The FCC regularly enforces speech, which should fundamentally be challenged as a violation of the First amendment, since the FCC, a government entity is describing what may and may not be said with regards to public discourse. There are also laws regarding slander, inciting violence or panic, as in the yelling fire in a crowded theater example. So among private citizens there are already reasonable curbs to some forms of speech. This now removes distinction between private citizens and public officials.

While a blow for women’s rights regarding privacy and harassment by belligerent parties, it does remove constraints on activists and progressives who have been routinely pushed back from confronting politicians or protesting at events. As we have seen repeatedly presidents, congress people, events, hearings, foreign leaders and diplomats have been afforded buffers from protesters. This law would mandate and demand that protesters be afforded their first amendment right in getting as close to those officials as necessary to be heard. As necessary would be the perview of the protester, not the protestee, by the way. It would also open up their families to protest as well, since today’s ruling erases all distinction between public and private citizen.

What does that mean for you? There are provisions in the law that make certain types of intimidating speech a prosecutable offense as a type of assault. For example, if I scream hysterically or violently in your face or at your child I can be arrested and prosecuted for assault. In my extreme emotion, if spittle hits or falls on you, you could accuse me of assault. Now all of that, you and your child are now fair game for anyone wishing to “protest” against you. Anything can now be framed as a protest. Verbal assault now has been all but eliminated, excepting direct threats of violence.

In a word this ruling is an assault on public safety. For protesters of all stripes, the gloves come off. For better or worse that is the nation we now live in. Let the law of unintended consequences prevail. That is the peril of a court who considers issues in the short run rather than the long run.
