Don’t Be Fooled by Pamela Geller
I refuse to take DAESH connection to the Garland shooting seriously, as I refuse to take this despicable woman seriously. Ever. I actually flinch when I see this kind of thing any more prominent than page eight in the paper or scrolled way down on any website. Sometimes, well too often our collective media outrage feeds their illness.
Hey I think I will sponsor a cartoon contest. Right here. I’ll buy a two month subscription for the artist that makes the best cartoon that shows Pamela Gellers true nature by way of caricature.

(CNN)It’s possible you’d never heard of Pamela Geller before Sunday night’s tragic attack in Garland, Texas. You might think she’s taking a brave stand for free speech, for American values, and that by supporting her, you’re supporting America.
I’m here to disabuse you of that notion. While Geller claims to stand for American values, much of what she does undermines our values.
