9/11 Families Ask Pamela Geller to Cancel Protest

US News • Views: 4,839

A group of 9/11 family members has officially asked Pamela Geller not to stage her bigoted hate rally on September 11: 9/11 Families Ask Ground Zero Mosque Protesters to Stop Rallies on Anniversary.

LOWER MANHATTAN — The ninth anniversary of 9/11 is the wrong day to hold rallies about the planned mosque and community center near Ground Zero, say relatives of the New Yorkers who died in the World Trade Center.

The group Stop Islamization of America is planning a massive rally near Ground Zero for the afternoon of Sept. 11, and those who support the project plan to hold a counter-protest.

“On this one day, we’re hopeful there don’t have to be rallies and protests, that we leave that day to remembrance and service in memory of those who perished,” said Jay Winuk, whose brother, Glenn Winuk, 40, a volunteer firefighter, was killed in the attacks.

“Whether you’re pro or con on the mosque issue, that’s not what this is about,” said Winuk, who declined to give his position. “This isn’t an appropriate day to do a protest of this sort.”

Winuk and David Paine, co-founders of My Good Deed, an organization that promotes volunteerism on the anniversary of 9/11, sent a letter to both sides this week, asking them not to rally. The letter was signed by about a dozen family members, including representatives of the Tribute WTC Visitor Center and September 11 Families Association.

Geller, of course, is riding high on a huge charge of raging narcissism and ego gratification, and she tells the relatives of victims of the 9/11 attacks to buzz off.

Pamela Geller, executive director of Stop Islamization of America, said in a statement that her protest would go forward as planned.

“The rally is one of remembrance, dedicated to honoring the memory of those who were murdered, and making sure their memory is not desecrated by this mosque,” Geller said. “How does such a spectacle in any way dishonor the victims of the 9/11 attacks?”

Notice that the Geller-thing doesn’t even try to be diplomatic about it. These are the people she pretends to be speaking for, and she tells them to get lost.

UPDATE at 9/3/10 10:02:44 am:

Did I say she isn’t trying to be diplomatic? That’s not even the half of it.

At her website, Pamela Geller is not just telling the 9/11 family members to get lost — she’s attacking them viciously and smearing the spokesman for the group as a “vampire” and a “socilaist” [sic]: He’s Not Even A 911 family Member.

The vampires are out in full force. …

David Paine, a public relations man who is not a 911 family member masqueraded as a a speaker for “the families” deriding the rally, and equating our patriots tribute to the the anti-Semitic, Holocaust-survivor-assaulting Sharia-supporting pro-mosque rallyers, engaging in a breathtaking moral equivocation. We are not remotely on the same moral playing field with those Islamic supremacists. Wait, it gets better. Public relations man Paine then spent the better part of the interminably long segment selling his 911 “day of service” socilaist nonsense, a PR initiative of his (working in service of the Obama administration.) Paine has scribbled for the Puffington Ho ……………
