PAMELA GELLER GOES OFF on CNN Host: Did Christians Burn Embassies When Jesus Christ Was Put in Jar of Urine? (VIDEO)
Pamela Geller spoke with Alisyn Camerota this morning in her first public interview since the terrorist attack last night on her freedom of speech event in Garland, Texas. Geller slammed the reporter for suggesting that offensive anti-Islamist speech should not be allowed in modern day Western society.
Pamela Geller: Increasingly we are abridging our freedoms so as not to offend savages. The very idea that is something offends me, or I’m insulted by something, I’ll kill you, and that way I can get my way, and somehow this is OK with members of the elite media and academia, is outrageous. It’s a cartoon. It’s a cartoon.
Alisyn Camerota: No one is saying this warrants the violence you’re saying. Now, I haven’t heard anyone in the media say that it’s OK for gunmen to show up at an event like this. But, what people are saying is there’s always this fine line between freedom of speech and being intentionally incendiary and provocative.
Pamela Geller: Intentionally incendiary and provocative by drawing a cartoon. This is the low state of freedom of speech in this country. I disagree and I disagree most vehemently. The First Amendment protects all speech not just the speech that we like… When Jesus Christ was put in a jar of urine it was called art. Did Christians like it? Of course not. slaughter people? Did they burn embassies? Did they kill kill whole communities? Of course not.
Media is furious a savage proved Pamela Geller correct. Geller risked her life to bring awareness and @CNN is victim-blaming her.
