You may not want to hear the opinion of others or to say someone's opinions are in bad taste, but that is not the issue. All Americans should support Geller and her right to express her opinion, hold her contests, or whatever she does within the law. If the KKK and the Wetboro Church has that right then Pamela Geller certainly has also.

    Why should we listen to you declare what all Americans should do? Climb down off your high horse. Do you need to have the wax cleaned out of your ears. Nobody has claimed that Geller doesn't have a right to speak her hate. But people have criticised the value of it and pointed out that she has gratuitously offended a religion, and her only pay check is her satisfaction of having provoked a group which she hates. Her actions also drew violence into the Dallas suburb. But hey, every bodies talking about her, Fox News is drooling over her, just like you, so I guess that's her advantage as well.

    Only two guys attacked in this specific incident though... and that is all that is being discussed.

    I never said that she doesn't have the right... I said that specifically targeting people that will act violently and that will kill innocent people is reckless and stupid.

    I think it is real shame that these people like Geller who are the equivalent of pro-wrestling in journalism get taken seriously by anybody with modicum of intelligence.

    No. I support her right to express her opinion. I do not support HER.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Look at this tweet from the AP....

    The Associated Press
    @AP
    Pamela Geller says she has no regrets about Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that ended in 2 deaths

    I mean, seriously? The deaths of WHO exactly, AP? Innocent people?

    Also ... I wonder if the AP writes "Our Lord Jesus Christ" or "Jehovah God".

    Interestingly, that's what Martin Luther King did by picking venues for protests that would draw the ire of those citizens there
