No Shots

with 3 comments

It is no surprise that the EDL are thick as well as being liars, but their latest grasp for sympathy is not going too well, as Nick Lowles describes events:

Even after Bedfordshire police concluded that no shots had actually be fired, were unsure of the ethnicity of the assailant and even questioned whether there had been a gun in the first place, Geller blogged with the headline: Muslim in Full Islamic Garb Attempts to Shoot and Kill EDL leader.

Geller has a problem with the truth. In fact, the woman is a complete nutter. Geller, like many Tea Partiers, expresses her racism as a “birther” – the racist conspiracy theory that claims president Obama is ineligible to be president, casting him as a non-white “other” and a non-American. In addition to claiming this Obama’s birth certificate is a “forgery,” she’s called president Obama a “third worlder and a coward” who’s “appeas[ing] his Islamic overlords.”

She has perpetuated the lie the President Obama is Muslim. Geller has referred to Obama as “The Muslim president.” Media Matters for America documented that Geller’s blog contains 267 posts tagged, “Muslim in the White House?” She’s gone as far as to seriously make the argument that Barack Obama is the illegitimate child of Malcolm X.

In addition to supporting the EDL, she has also defended Eugene Terre’Blanche, a founder of the white supremacist Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (or AWB). “

Geller is a well known EDL supporter and frankly off her trolley.

PS: Before any of her supporters feel like commenting please read my previous post, Anti-Muslim Bigots, Feck Off.

Update 1: If anyone is curious about Geller’s comments on the Terreblanche, they might do well to read Jeff Goldberg’s post or her comments via the Google cache:

“Monday, April 05, 2010

Every single headline calls Terreblanche a “white supremacist,” alluding to his position in the waning days of the apartheid government, thirty-odd years ago. But the real story here is not that Terreblanche was a “white supremacist” — if he really was (and I know how the left loves to throw around those labels). Whether he was or not, the man was brutally murdered, and I had to go through ten newspaper accounts to find out how he was murdered. The liberal media had to dehumanize him first. And not one newspaper account speaks of Black supremacism — yet that is the really important story in South Africa today. All I see in South Africa is Black supremacism. Terreblanche may have been a white supremacist, but he’s the dead one. “

Geller can’t even use Google to determine Terreblanche’s background and the neo-Nazi emblem of the AWB. Maybe the Nazi salutes given at his funeral might hint at the political thinking of AWB’s members?

    Obama would be better off if he were a Muslim than a two decade member of a Marxist racist church that pushes Kook claims about the US Government fostering AIDS. We are not talking about a visit to Bob Jones University with idiotic policies. A two decade membership in a church with a pastor that belongs in mental health treatment is a serious issue.

    One need not look too far to find decent Muslims who grasp that AIDS is a disease and know who blew up the WTC.

    In general birth certificates in the US are harder to verify than most foriegn ones because of regional variation. Even within States and time period formal certification may only be done at the official lab from an original. No such examination has ever been occurred and web experts on both sides know nothing.

  2. So you think Pam Geller has a point?

  3. Not the one she thinks. Perhaps if I bump into her in NYC I will get to the bottom of this.

    Jams and I share a common vocation. He is a former immigration officer and I am a current one. A familiarity with documents is part of the job.

    I have never advocated Birtherism. However, the debunkers and the birthers spread falsehoods about how to verify ID documents.

    There may be irregularities on Obama’s birth certificates for many reasons. Obama’s mother likely knew Obama Sr was a practicing polygamist and did not want to have a child out of wedlock. There may have been no name of the father on the original certificate. There are a myriad of reasons why the originals might have been tampered with that do not involve foreign births.

    In general there has been zero discussion of who Barak Obama Sr was. He was a rather nasty man who was an alcoholic and deceptive.

    Officers like Jams and myself are aware that officers enforce a variety of laws that they do not like with benign neglect.
    Even the most militant by the book managers chaffe at certain laws. I can state for a fact that letter of the law types in the US hate the notion of illegitimate children and legitimation which is part of the laws of the UK.

    Parts of Obama’s life are just unexplored mysteries. He should not have been given a free pass on Pastor Wright and Bill Ayers.
    His friendship with Rashid Khalidi and some off the map Professors should have been discussed.

    You may not like Palin, but it is hard to imagine her sitting in a Church that claimed the US Government invented AIDS. Is this proof Obama is somehow intellectual and Palin is a dullard.

    Palin is not my candidate either. I do not like the cult of Obama. I frequently disagree with Michael Bloomberg, but he learns from his mistakes and can lead.
