    Responding to CAP’s Islamophobia report, anti-Muslim activists David Horowitz called it “fascistic” and Robert Spencer deemed it the “agenda of the Islamic jihad.” Determined to one-up her Islamophobia network colleagues, Pamela Geller took to her blog on Friday evening to unleash a fiery tirade against the new report “Fear, Inc.”

    Geller piles baseless, if at times colorful, allegations on the report’s authors. Including:

    Over at the wildly funded machine of hate and lies, the “Center of American Progess,” the Soros cranks have spent hundreds of thousands producing a pile of dung masquerading as research. [...]

    It reads more like a Mein Kampf treatise. The funding section of the report is outrageous. I have not seen one dime from any those donors, though they name me as a recipient. Lies. [...]

    [MediaMatters and the Center for American Progress] mean to destroy this country, and they will crush anyone who gets in their way. [...]

    This “report on Islamophobia” is Goebbels attacking the Jew. I wear it as a badge of honor. These quislings are the enemy. They fear my work, and that is good. They fear my book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance. [...]

    Watch them choke on their own vomit.

    The report, which was funded by the financier George Soros’ Open Society Institute (OSI),

    First, has anyone heard of any of the groups covered in the report? I know I haven't.

    Second, John Podesta? Can we get a more biased source?

    I doubt the validity of the report, but even if it is true...so what? A couple of no name, no recognition groups worked together? Well whoopty freakin do. Can we talk about something that actually matters? Like a president whose first instinct is to do the wrong thing and what it is going to take to replace him.

    i'm more of the mind that 19 hijackers on a bright September morning had more to do with any "Islamophobia" than any scary right wing think collaboration could ever pull off.

    Whether you've heard of the groups or not is entirely inconsequential.

    However biased you think the report may be, it seems comical that you and other conservatives are ready to dismiss it as a whole right away.

    considering the source, it's not unreasonable to dismiss it.... just as it's not unreasonable for a left leaner to dismiss an inflammatory "report" from a hyperpartisan right wing org.
