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.

Elton Simpson from Arizona is the man behind the ‘Shariah is Light’ Twitter account.
ABC News.go reported:

One of the suspects in the shooting in Garland, Texas, late Sunday has been identified as Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, according to a senior FBI official.

Overnight and today FBI agents and a bomb squad were at Simpson’s home in an apartment complex in north Phoenix where a robot is believed to be conducting an initial search of the apartment.

Officials believe Simpson is the person who sent out several Twitter messages prior to the attack on Sunday, in the last one using the hashtag #TexasAttack about half an hour before the shooting.

Local police said two suspects opened fire late Sunday outside a community center in Garland that was hosting an event displaying cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. One unarmed security guard was injured, but other security officers managed to fatally shoot both attackers before anyone else was hurt or killed.

Followers of ISIS had been sending messages about the event in Texas for more than a week, calling for attacks. One referenced January’s Charlie Hebdo massacre in France and said it was time for “brothers” in the United States to do their part.

Elton Simpson was well-known to the FBI and traveled to Somalia in 2011.

The FBI is currently at Simpson’s apartment.

ISLAMISTS & LEFTISTS ATTACK Freedom Protesters in Denmark (Video)

Far left radicals and members of the Hizb-Ut-Tahir Islamist group attacked a group of Freedom protesters in Denmark

Freedom protesters were assaulted by Islamo-leftists at their rally in Denmark this week.
10 News.dk reported, via Religion of Peace:

The below is written by a friend who joins our weekly evening demonstrations every Monday in Copenhagen.

But first a video from that same evening. You can see us in the back ground with our white signs and banner “For Frihed” (For Freedom). We stood their 20-30 minutes while the police was fighting with the anti-fascists who tried to get to our group and attack us. Finally the police gave up and ordered us to return to our starting point. A loss for free speech and our constitutional right to assemble. But probably good for physical safety:

Of course, several unruly leftists were cuffed and arrested during the confrontation.

By the way: Link to photos showing Hizb-ut-Tahrir speaking from the “anti”-fascists van here. I just do not get it: why does the Left love Islam that much? When I was a kid the Left was against suppression of women, against the power of religion (it was “opium” for the people) and for the right to speak freely against any authority, religious or political. Is it because Muslims vote Left, are they suicidal (artists and political activists will be the first to be flogged, tortured or beheaded if sharia takes over) or do they just not have a clue?

Alan Dershowitz: Baltimore Police Indictment Is “Sad Day for Justice” – “Conviction Unlikely” (VIDEO)

Al Gore: “I Could Become Catholic Because of This Pope” (Video)

Guest post by Patch Adams

While giving a speech as apart of the Dean’s Speaker Series at the University of California Berkeley, former Vice President, and now Climate Charlatan, Al Gore said that because of Pope Francis’s recent stance on fighting man-made Climate Change, he could see himself becoming a Catholic:

Gore: ” I think Pope Francis is quite an inspiring figure really. A phenomena. I’ve been startled with the clarity of the moral force that he embodies. He kind of raises in a new context the old question: “Is the Pope Catholic?”

“That’s a joke by the way.

Well I’ve said publicly in the last year, I was raised in the Southern Baptist tradition, I could become a Catholic because of this Pope. He is that inspiring to me. And I know the vast majority of my Catholic friends are just thrilled to the marrow of their bones that he is inspiring this kind of spiritual leadership. I would like to give credit to his immediate three predecessors, as Holy Father, who also had very powerful statements on Global Warming. But Pope Francis is going beyond them with this encyclical which, evidently, is expected around the middle of June, and of course there was a preliminary document which just came out yesterday, is likely to have a very powerful impact.”

Oregon Rep Cites “Economic Oppression” For Baltimore Rioters (Video)

Guest post by Michael Strickland

Oregon state Representative Lew Frederick took to the House floor this past Tuesday, April 28th, to address the riots in Baltimore.
oregon rep

Parts of his speech included the following lines:

“It would also be easy, as many commentators have, to say that the rioters are just thugs. I’m not gunna make excuses for violence, there are no excuses, there are however, explanations. probably the most important thing to remember about this kind of riot is that it is an eruption of built up pressure. When people have nothing or little to lose, and lots to be angry about, it’s a dangerous condition.

“These riots are not a response to one incident. They are are a response to sustained violence in the form of relentless oppression. Economic oppression and unfair targeting, including violence, are not separate issues, but part of a system that those targeted see as coordinated. When they lash out, it may seem indiscriminate, when it seems that the whole world is against you, everything looks like an appropriate focus of rage.

“There are provocateurs who see this as opportunity to make trouble, and others who intentionally provide the opportunities. The whole picture is much more complicated than you will see on the news. City leaders in Baltimore call for order as they obviously should and we all should. This disorder is an emergency, but what will they do about the disorder that some communities experience on a daily basis?”
