I am speaking in Florida tonight, and I was about to post event info when I came upon this full-page article in the Orlando Sentinel: "Controversial conservative blogger speaks in The Villages"
"Controversial." By whose standards? Truth is controversial. The recognition of reality is controversial.
I am not controversial. The Orlando Sentinel is controversial. Their advocating for the return of Rifqa Bary to a dangerous home situation when she lived in fear of her life is controversial. The smearing and defaming of an innocent 17-year-old girl is controversial. The abject sniveling and subjugating to supremacist pressure is controversial.
My work is controversial? Only in a perverted inversion of morality. Saving the lives of Muslim girls is controversial? Creating working groups to stop the increase of honor killings in the West is controversial? Speaking out against gender apartheid, the subjugation and oppression of non-Muslims and women is controversial? Fighting Islamic Jew-hatred is controversial?
"Controversial conservative blogger speaks in The Villages" Orlando Sentinel
SUMMERFIELD — A conservative blogger accused of being anti-Islamic will make an appearance tonight at a church near The Villages retirement community.
Pamela Geller, who heads the Stop Islamization of America group, is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. at the Village View Community Church in Summerfield. The Tri-County Tea Party is hosting the event, charging $10 a ticket.
Geller was one of the most vocal opponents of the proposed Islamic cultural center and mosque near the World Trade Center site in New York. She led her opposition through her blog, Atlas Shrugs.
Muslim rights activists have denounced Geller, author of "Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance." In 2010, theCouncil on American-Islamic Relationsurged the tea party to remove Geller as a speaker at its convention in Tennessee. The council also protested when Geller, whom the group accuses of being an Islamophobe, was invited to speak in November at the tea-party convention in Daytona Beach.

Ms. Gonzalez is in need of some serious schooling in objective reporting. I am pro-freedom. She calls that anti-Islamic. But she has no trouble calling Muslim Brotherhood operatives and Islamic supremacist subversives "Muslim rights activists." I am a human rights activist. Equal rights for all.
