There is something fundamentally broken in our culture. Imagine a society that extols the supremacist tyranny of the sharia while smearing and defaming human rights activists fighting for freedom and individual rights over gencdercide and gender apartheid.
Look at USA Today's coverage of the Islamic supremacist hate group denouncing our Jessica Mokdad Human Rights Conference. Did anyone from USA Today even attend our conference or listen to the live stream? The "reporter," Niraj Warikoo, is your typical useful idiot running the press release of a tyrannical enemy seeking to destroy our freedoms, our civilization from within.
Anyone that opposed our conference supports the killing of women under the sharia. Honor killings should get the kind of attentive press that these jihadists get.
Niraj Warikoo interviewed me and used none of it. Here's the interview:

Niraj Warikoo: Can you talk about what the conference is about, its general message?
Pamela Geller Our goal is to raise awareness about the phenomenon of Islamic honor killing in order to help bring a stop to it. These girls have rights, too, they’re human beings, and yet they’re completely forgotten in our politically correct culture. We’re standing for the human rights of girls like Jessica Mokdad.
Niraj Warikoo: A family member of Jessica Mokdad told Fox News Detroit earlier this year they don’t want Jessica’s name on the conference. They said they’re opposed to the conference. Can you offer any reaction to that?
Pamela Geller: Darwin Jiles, a close friend of Jessica, has said this: “Jessica was someone who wanted to have liberties, like every other young lady that is born in America outside of the traditions of Islam are able to do, to pursue her own happiness and to pursue her own dreams. And I can say for sure, of knowing her, of hearing the issues that she actually faced on both sides of her family, she was very conflicted, and she lived in fear of even her life possibly ending up in this situation that happened, with her being murdered in cold blood…Jessica would wear [the Islamic headcovering, the hijab] it when she was with her family, and when she wasn’t with her family, she let it be very known that she didn’t want to wear it, that she did not want to be a part of this forced Islamic religion. She was very clear with that to me. And so Cassandra really is portraying a false picture. And Pamela has every right to place the conference to be named after Jessica in regards to this, because it was Islam that caused her death.”
Niraj Warikoo:Local Arab-American groups are holding a counter-conference earlier in the day to oppose your conference. Any thoughts on their concerns?
Pamela Geller: These groups should be standing with us in defense of the basic unalienable rights of young Muslim girls and Muslim women in the West. Instead, they are lining up in support of honor killing, gendercide, and the subjugation and oppression of women.
And here is what the lapdog for Islamic supremacists ran:
Arab-Americans hold conference against bigotry USA Today, Niraj Warikoo
DETROIT – Arab-Americans and their supporters held a conference in Detroit on Sunday against bigotry in response to an anti-Islam conference in Dearborn, Mich.
"We stand for America," said Osama Siblani, publisher of the Dearborn-based Arab-American News, at a panel discussion held at a Detroit hotel. "And they (anti-Muslim activists) stand against America and against the American way of life."
Siblani's views were echoed by others who gathered for a conference organized by the Arab American Institute and supported by several other Arab-American groups to counter a conference held in Dearborn on Sunday by anti-Muslim activists called the "Jessica Mokdad Human Rights Conference on Honor Killings."
Last year, Mokdad, 20, a Muslim was shot dead by her stepfather in Warren, Mich. Some anti-Islam activists said it was a honor killing because initial reports were that she was perceived as too independent, but Macomb County Assistant Prosecutor Bill Cataldo said Friday it was not an honor killing. The family of Mokdad opposed the anti-Islam conference and didn't want Mokdad's name on it, Cataldo said.
On Sunday, Imam Hassan Qazwini of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn -- the biggest mosque in Michigan -- said : "Honor killing has no religious roots in Islam."
Geller, who blogs against Islam, said: "Our goal is to raise awareness about the phenomenon of Islamic honor killing in order to help bring a stop to it. These girls have rights, too, they're human beings, and yet they're completely forgotten in our politically correct culture."
Qazwini said he believes Geller is motivated by money. He said she wants to make "Islam look like a monster to raise funds."
The anti-freedom, pro-sharia propaganda goes on. It's cringe worthy -- we expect this from terror TV like Al Jazeera, but USA Today?
