1A, Pamela Geller, and Islam

So many quotes of the day, so little time.

Breitbart interviews Pamela (and posts some of the cartoons!!):
Breitbart News: Even some conservative columnists and a potential presidential candidate (Donald Trump) have resorted to personal attacks against you as a preface before arguing in defense of free speech. Why do you feel that so many have come to attack the messenger?

Pamela Geller: This is the problem with the conservatives. This is why we can never nominate qualified, brave, true conservative candidates. The conservative movement has trimmed to accommodate the leftist media so much that they’ve trimmed themselves out of principle. They attack me because they’re desperately afraid that the leftist media will smear them by association with me. It is an act of sheer cowardice.

Talking Points Memo:
Mayor of Garland Texas:  Her [Pamela Geller's] actions put my police officers, my citizens and others at risk. Her program invited an incendiary reaction.

Geller:  How ridiculous.  I mean, that’s like saying that the pretty girl was responsible for her own rape. The mayor is going after the defenders of free speech and clearly giving a free pass to the savages who came with guns to kill innocent people because of a cartoon.

Comrade Tam "nearly drove into the ditch, yelling at the radio and gnawing on the steering wheel in impotent frustration" while listening to liberals excuse murder and blame cartoonists on NPR:
It used to be that if there was one thing you could at least count on liberals for, it was a vigorous defense of free speech; it's a cause that has found the ACLU in bed with the NRA on at least one occasion I can think of. This new turn is... chilling.
Here is what I've come to accept about liberals:
Liberals will excuse anything (including destruction of property, murder, dead cops, no-knock raids, and concentration camps) in order to cling to their failed ideas and ideology. 

Liberalism trumps everything, including religion.

Liberals will work 80 hours a week (protesting, striking, complaining) to avoid working 40 hours a week producing something.

Liberals prefer destruction to construction and production.

Liberals are only generous when it is someone else's time, money or productivity.

Liberals have spent 160 years attempting to polish the ideas of Karl Marx for maximum market appeal.
