The Forward 50: See our annual list of the 50 men and women who have made a significant impact on the Jewish story in the past year. For the first time this year, an interactive graphic accompanies the feature. More (where did they get that pic?)
Here is how the Jewicidal press describes me. I am on my way to speak at the Westchester Tea Party. Must I point out how wrong they got it?
In December of 2009, long before the controversy over what became known as the “Ground Zero mosque” took hold of the national conversation — back when one of the organizers of the project could still appear on Fox News for a mostly friendly interview — one blog began to beat the war drums. That blog was Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs, which launched the opposition to a planned Islamic cultural center in Lower Manhattan with a post titled “Mosque at Ground Zero: Adding Insult to Agony.”
Neglecting to mention that the proposed center, now known as Park51, is not a mosque, per se, and is being planned blocks from the former site of the World Trade Center, is par for the course for Geller, 52, a far-right, anti-Muslim provocateur. Known for her outrageous rhetoric and her Ann Coulter-like glamour, she was a key voice in spurring on the grassroots fervor that eventually catapulted the story into the mainstream political discourse.
Her website is hardly a credible source of analysis: Geller famously posted an essay by another author on the eve of the 2008 presidential elections arguing that Barack Obama is actually the son of Malcolm X. But as a key anti-Muslim voice both before and after the Park51 controversy, she has had an undeniable impact.
"Ann Coulter-like glamour" -- woo hoo.
"Hardly a credible source." Few bloggers or journalists have broken as many stories as Atlas has. I source everything. I stand by my work.
Have these clowns ever delved into the greatest threat to the Jewish people, Islamic anti-semitism? Suicidal clowns. I am not the bad guy.
Close to 20,000 posts, hundreds of articles and an in-depth book on Obama, and they point to the lefty lie about the Malcolm X blah blah blah. Here is the update I posted almost immediately after putting up the original post, on top of the post about Obama's radical ties and extremist influences.
The "Atlas says that Barack Obama is Malcolm X's love child" charge has gone viral among leftards and lizards. The only problem with it is that it is false. I am not the author of this post, and I posted it because the writer did a spectacular job documenting Obama's many connections with the Far Left. The Malcolm X claim is one minor part of this story, and was of interest to me principally as part of the writer's documentation that Stanley Ann Dunham could not have been where the Obama camp says she was at various times. I do not believe that Barack Obama is Malcolm X's love child, and never did -- but there remain many, many unanswered questions about his early life and upbringing.
Did they mention the ground breaking story I broke of Obama's contributions from a Hamas-controlled area of Gaza? No, just the X man. Asshats.
