Great Neck Synagogue Pulls the Plug on Pamela Geller Hatefest
Anti-Muslim hate group leader Pamela Geller haz a sad tonight, because her speech at the prestigious Great Neck Synagogue has been called off after a chorus of outrage from the community. As is her wont, Ms Geller is now ranting about fascism and sounding exactly like the type of loon whose event gets canceled:
Due to relentless intimidation, bullying and threats, the Great Neck Synagogue is cancelling my talk at the Great Neck Synagogue on Sunday. It is a very sad day for freedom-loving peoples when fascist tactics trump free speech.
They win. Again.
The synagogue board could not take the extraordinary pressures and issued the following statement that, as the board said, while “these important issues must be discussed, the synagogue is unable to bear the burden.” The event is cancelled.
“As the notoriety and media exposure of the planned program this Sunday have increased, so has the legal liability and potential security exposure of our institution and it’s [sic] member families. In an era of heightened security concerns it is irresponsible to jeopardize the safety of those who call Great Neck Synagogue home, especially our children, even at the risk of diverting attention from a potentially important voice in the ongoing debate. Accordingly, the Great Neck Synagogue Men’s Club will no longer be sponsoring the appearance of Pamela Geller this coming Sunday, and no event will be taking place in our facility.”

Notice how she added a ‘[sic]’ to draw attention to a typo in the statement.
