The Marines’ victory tinkle Pamela Geller, WND
Exclusive: Pamela Geller lists Islamic atrocities that get far less media coverage
As soon as the Marine victory tinkle story “broke,” I went public immediately with my support at my website AtlasShrugs.com and on news broadcasts, saying, “So what?” The name-calling and attacks commenced, trying to squelch the beginnings of any support for our fighting men. The enemedia cannot get enough of the trashing of our men and women in uniform. Pure evil.
Who leaked the Marine video? That is the real story. The timing of its release is deliberate and points to the ugliest of motives.
Our boys and girls are coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan after 10 years of battling an enemy so evil and bloodthirsty that most Americans would weep if they had any idea what these savages do, how they “live” and die. The people haven’t a real clue, because the enemedia obfuscates and either under-reports or doesn’t report at all the actual news – and when they do, they speak affectionately of an enemy so brutal and bloodthirsty that it defies the Western mind. Jihadis did far worse to American corpses in Fallujah and Somalia, and it was excused, downplayed, denied, forgotten. But this? The coverage is nonstop.
Our troops are coming home, and this story breaks? Now? Why? So that our troops have a Vietnam welcome? So that the American people will rebuke our returning soldiers? The victory tinkle took place in spring or summer of 2011. Why now?
The media are all over the victory tinkle like maggots on dead flesh, beside themselves at the idea that we somehow disrespected devout murdering jihadists. The nonstop reportage focuses on the “outrage.” Whose? Theirs, that of the enemedia and our enemies. Americans by and large think it’s no big deal. And they’re right.
Saturday, the New York Times set up the next media fiction to save the destroyer in the White House. Get this: The Times advanced the idea that these Marines were responsible for the failure of Obama’s “peace” negotiations with these soulless savages. As if.
Think about the timing of the tinkle news drop. You. Are. Being. So. Played, America.
On Friday, I was at CNN studios being interviewed for SUN TV, and I heard some loud, self-important pundit calling for the prosecution of Gen. Petraeus and other military brass over the Marines’ victory tinkle. This hot pile of steaming dung is being heaped upon the American people in an endless loop.
Did the three jihadis plotting attacks in America last week get this much press?
Did the Alabama Muslim who was shooting at police in order “to draw attention to Islam” get as much press?
Did the devout Florida Muslim who was arrested for plotting to blow up nightclubs and a sheriff’s office and to use an explosive belt to “get in somewhere where there’s a lot of people” and take hostages get as much press?
Did another in a series of attacks on New Jersey synagogues get as much press? Or the fact that the rabbi and his family were targeted when molotov cocktails were thrown in their bedroom window? Did they get press?
Did the Islamic slaughter of beautiful Zainab Shafia and her sisters, Sahar, 17, and Geeti, 13, in an honor killing get as much press? Their Muslim father, who murdered them, said: “May the devil s–t on their graves. Is that what a daughter should be? Would a daughter be such a whore? … God’s curse on them for generations. … They betrayed Islam.”
Did the recent public whipping of a convert out of Islam in Somalia get any coverage?
Did the treasonous Rep. Mark Siljander who was sentenced to prison last week for taking blood money to get Islamic “charities” that were funding jihad off the terror list get as much press?
Was the press outraged over the slaughter of blacks in Libya by the new jihadist government?
Was the press outraged over the beating and sodomy of Moammar Gadhafi?
Was the press outraged by the sexual attack (while screaming “Jew!”) by the “freedom” protesters in Egypt?
I could go on and on and on: the slaughter of Christians in Muslim countries, the jihad in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Kenya, Ethiopia, the jihad against the Jews … you get the picture. Never this much media coverage.
The press is wringing their hands, crying like little girls that this might upset the terrorists and incite jihad. Trust me, thumbsuckers, with or without the wee wee, they are coming after you. They are upset over a tinkle? Well, the majority of Americans are upset over the horrors these jihadis have visited upon Americans.
Offended? I am more offended by Valerie Jarrett telling a decorated officer to bring her a drink at a cocktail party.
Predictably, not only the media but the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has again sided with jihadists against the U.S. military. Always. Apparently they are a “Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization” for the jihadists in the Taliban, al-Shabaab, Hamas, Hezbollah, et al.
Here’s the thing. The Hamas liars of CAIR say that jihad and pure Islam is “fringe,” “extremist.” So why do they care about disrespecting the Taliban? According to CAIR lies, Taliban and jihadists do not represent Islam, as they have “hijacked Islam.” So why would CAIR care about “respect”? CAIR calls these Marines immoral, but considers honor killings, clitorectomies, forced marriage, child marriage, polygamy, subjugation of women, the slaughter of non-Muslims and Jew-hatred moral?
There is talk of jail time for the Marines who risked life and limb to protect you, your children, your town, your country. A reprimand, yes, OK. Jail time? Let them try it. We will descend on Capitol Hill with pitchforks and torches in hand, and we will storm the Bastille.
The press is the enemy.
G-d bless the U.S. Marines.
