Winners of the Islamophobia Awards: Barack Obama, Pamela Geller…


The Islamic Human Rights Commission (my new favorite oxymoron) handed out their annual islamophobia awards last night.

And the winners are ….. Barack and me. Imagine that.

Too bad Muslims don’t hand out awards to Muslims fighting the “misunderstanders,” “jihadists” and sharia enforcers. Instead, they work furiously to silence those of us who work in defense of liberty, justice and equality for all before the law. No, instead they vilify and attack Muslims who do just that (i.e., Raheem Kassam).

Islamophobia awardsI was named America’s top islamophobe, the “USA’s Islamophobia Matriarch.”  There were five geographical winners. I am in extraordinary company. I am joined by exceptional leaders: in Asia and Australasia, the top prize went to the Nobel peace prize winner, Burmese freedom and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, first prize in the Middle East and Africa went to  Egypt’s General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, first prize in the Europe and Central Asia category goes to the Dutch “far-right” politician Geert Wilders, and Muslim Raheem Kassam was named UK islamophobe of the year.

Like I said ….. extraordinary company.  How silly these supremacists are. Deadly folly.

Barack Obama wins first prize at ‘Islamophobia awards’

US president Barack Obama has won first prize at the toung-in-cheek Islamophobia awards for for his nations unrelenting drone attacks. Islamophobia awards 2014

Obama had been nominated by the public for “just about everything” – a charge that covers his continuation of drone strikes in the Muslim world as well as the failure to close the notorious Guantanamo Bay detention centre, and the introduction of the National Defense Authorisation Act that effectively ‘Guantanamises’ the whole USA.

Obama came in streets ahead of a gallery of fellow rogues which included other prominent politicians including French President Francois Hollande – cited for his country’s invasion of Mali – and the British Home Secretary Theresa May for a host of sins including extraditing Asperger’s sufferer Talha Ahsan to the United States, stripping Muslims of their citizenship, and most recently thinking about applying “anti-terror” ASBO-style punishments for British Muslims who are merely “suspected” of so-called terrorist activities.

As well as a chief Islamophobe award, an award is given to the worst Islamophobe in each of five geographical areas in line with the votes received from the participating public.

In the Americas the winner this year was Pamela Geller. Geller was nominated for her rise to fame as the USA’s Islamophobia Matriarch.

She has made a name for herself for opposing anything Islamic and particularly her opposition to the planned construction of a mosque near the site of the Twin Towers destroyed in the Sept 11 attacks in the USA.

The clear winner in the UK is a relative newcomer to the Islamophobia industry, Raheem Kassam.

Kassam is a Muslim neo-con who has quickly made himself the darling of the British right by attacking Muslim organisations and figures as extremists for defending Muslims’ rights. First prize in the Europe and Central Asia category goes to the Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders. Wilders is the leader of the Netherlands’ Freedom Party, which continues to campaign on its virulently anti-Muslim platform and propagate fears of an impending Islamic takeover of Europe.

In Asia and Australasia, the top prize went to the unlikely figure of Burmese freedom and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi.

The 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner was nominated for her continuing refusal to back citizenship calls by the country’s oppressed Rohingya Muslim minority.

The Burmese government’s denial of statehood to the Rohingya is one of the main reasons they are described by the UN as one of the world’s most persecuted peoples.

Along with her National League for Democracy party, Aung San Suu Kyi has tiptoed around the issue and has even refused to condemn the state-supported attacks that ravaged Rohingya communities in 2012.

The clear winner in The Middle East and Africa was Egypt’s General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the army general who conducted a bloody campaign to remove and then ban the democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood and put the Arab world’s most populous nation firmly back on the road to military rule.

Although the Islamophobia Awards are intended to be a tongue in cheek poke at public figures of all stripes, they do carry a serious message. Islamophobia is on the rise all over the world, particularly in the West, and the event serves to focus attention on the problem. Five genuine awards will also be given to people who have struggled against Islamophobia.

Islamophobia can be described as stereotypes, bias or acts of hostility towards individual Muslims or followers of Islam in general. In addition to individual acts of intolerance and racial profiling, Islamophobia leads to viewing Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level and perceiving their views to be intrinsically problematic, violent or unethical.

  • Larry S.

    This is truly a hoot! But AFAIAC, despite my uneasiness about her sharing an award with the likes of Obama, she is in rarefied company with Aung San Suu Kyi. Say, I wonder about the possibility of marketing a Pamela Geller costume for Halloween- oooh, scary!

  • Nicholas Cox

    Well done Ms Geller! Anyone who gets up the nose of the ‘Religion of Perpetual Offence’ is doing something right in my eyes. I would indeed consider being bestowed with the same accolade as a compliment of the highest order!

  • logdon

    Congratulations Pamela. Hallowed company including irony of ironies, our very own Dhimmi May.

    Do they have an award ceremony where you can pick up your Islamophobe Oscar?

    Just imagine the bevy of beards ‘n burkas doing their islamic thing outside?

          Hey Field Marshal, nice to see you, good buddy :-)

          You’re at roughly 5:30pm in the lovely land Down Under, as the USA starts dozing off. I’m outta here, last post for the day, seeking sleep asap.

          You’ve probably seen me post this pic before, but I’ll send it here to add more flavor to a rather interesting thread.

          See you around, Gary, take care . . .

    How did Obama horn into this group? This guy is like some sort of combination of Forest Gump, Chauncy Gardner, Steve Urkel and Dumbo the elephant.

  • Firesword

    Pamela, as a bomber pilot once told me “If you are drawing heavy FLAK, you are over the target”. Just keep pouring it on the Moslem Butchers and these defenders of the religion of pieces.

  • gfmucci

    Barack and Pamela, together regarding Islam? What kind of deceptive, taqiyya-esque nonsense is that?

  • gfmucci

    “Islamophobia can be described as stereotypes, bias or acts of hostility towards individual Muslims or followers of Islam in general.”

    It just so happens that the great majority of Muslims, both here and abroad, match that “stereotype”(deceptive, intolerant, untrustworthy, pro-Jihad, anti-western freedoms) to a “T”. They have earned our “bias”, and are deserving of, if not our “hostility” and deportation, at least great suspicion and careful monitoring.

  • John Doe

    We should start an ‘Islamofascism Award’ and hand them to all the muslims that are working tirelessly to impose Islam on the free world.

    What a filthy inversion of reality, muslims always seem to find new ways to disgust me.

  • Hans Schaden

    Good, Pamela, that the savage enemy pays you this honour! Charles Martel, Jan Sobieski and Prinz Eugen would be proud!

    How did khalifa Barak Hussein make this group?

  • EJO

    Miss Geller;

    First of all: CONGRATULATIONS!!

    Second of all: Isn’t it bizarre that the one man that cannot stop sloppily smooching mass quantities of Islamic buttocks, wins first prize in this Islamophobia contest?

    What a crazy world we live in.
    And then there is this.

    a substitute ‘truther’ teacher explains 9/11, Jonestown, Pearl Harbor to high schoolers

    By Tom Boggioni
    Friday, February 21, 2014 15:18 EST

    — In a video that appears to have been taken with a student’s cell
    phone, a Grosse Pointe substitute teacher explains that 9/11 was an
    inside job involving brainwashing by “MKUltra”, most wars are started
    with ‘false flag’ operations, and that the Jonestown Massacre was most
    likely a CIA experiment in brain-washing.

    The teacher in the unsourced video posted to YouTube, is identified as Jason Glicker, and was filmed as he spoke to a classroom at Grosse
    Pointe North High School in Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

    In the video , Glicker explains that the Pakistani intelligence service, the ISI is “funded indirectly by the CIA, so, whether they knew it or not, they were funding the terrorists.”

    He then explains that 9/11′s Mohamed Atta couldn’t have been a Muslim
    extremist because he had been living in the U.S. for years and, “He had
    an American girlfriend. He was supposedly addicted to cocaine.”

    Glick adds, “Muslim’s don’t do drugs, they don’t date American women.”

    He then notes that the 9/11 hijackers were “just paid thugs” and that they had probably been “brainwashed by MKUltra”.

  • H. Schalk

    Never thought I’d see you sharing the same award with the ‘Prince of darkness’! Congratulations! Your honor was earned and deserved while Barack ( Islamic arse licker extraordinaire) must be most miffed.

  • H. Schalk

    Pamela I didn’t think you’d ever be sharing an award with ‘Dear Leader’ ( he must be miffed!) strange twists of fate, eh! Congratulations on an honor that was totally earned and deserved!

  • Alisia S

    What a badge of honor! Obama was probably deeply offended by it. LOL

    • Gary Rumain

      Yes, one of them wants to make him their caliph, the others want to string him up. It’s like he can’t win.

      • Robert Laity

        That was Dawani, a Pakistani legislator that nominated Obama to be Caliph.

        • Gary Rumain

          Yep, obviously a fool.

  • Mark McDonald

    you can bet that CAIR/Islam is reading every message posted on this web site too.

    • Gary Rumain

      Of course. So we should tell CAIR to go f themselves!

      • Mark McDonald

        AMEN Gary!

  • Mark McDonald

    ok, lets start at the beginning, how do they define Islamophobia:

    Defining Islamophobia

    Islamophobia is close-minded prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims.

    From CAIR’s web site:

    Did I miss something?

    Pamela writes about violent acts by the people of Islam.

    With that said, the people of Islam are calling Pamela anti Muslims for reporting facts, go figure. I am amazed that these fine Muslims and CAIR are worried about Muslims arrested in the United States in making sue that they are eating Islamic approved foods while in prison. All in the name of their religion.

    But this was not an issues when the Vietnamese came to this country 20 something years ago. The Vietnamese saw a change to work and build a life in this country and they worked for it unlike the Muslims who are migrating here and living off our government while to have the money to build mosque.

    • 1776 Freedom Fighter

      An excellent comment, Mark; you’ve shined a light on the hypocrisy of CAIR.

      Here’s a grim pic; oddly, CAIR has not offered much of a comment to justify the acts of these savages…

  • RCCA

    “Islamophobe” isn’t it just a contemporary PC way of calling someone a kuffar? haha. We’re on to you guys.

    • Gary Rumain

      We should call them out on their kuffarphobia.

  • Anthony Jacobs

    Pamela: well done! I support you 100%. From an Englishman.

  • Maxime-Etienne de Gier

    I wish to join the ranks, basically I wish to become the most hated person in the entire Muslim world. There must be a short cut to this glory, surely.

    • Gary Rumain

      Just get on TV as a reputable reporter and let at them.

  • Jesse Kaellis

    I love your face, Pamela.And all the other stuff.

  • Charles

    You must be doing something right! Congrats! Coming from these thugs, it´s quite an honor. As I said, you are on the right track. Keep at it, and God bless you!

  • Well Done

    Islamists are very familiar with Western ways, and our own academics have helped inform them. Our hard left continues to advise them. Just as the hard left are quick to call names like “racist”, and, more recently, “homophobic”, Islamists have learned to immediately call people who dare oppose their stealth jihad “Islamophobic”.

  • Richard

    Congratulations! How did Obama manage to win it? However he should now invite you as a colleague.

    I like that (Inspiration from the comments)

    At the award ceremony:

    1. Carry a banner onto the stage:

    .Islamophobia = The phobia of Islam to criticism, infidels and anything non-Islamic

    2. You should collect your award in a Burkini with a black dog on a leash, who should then carry the award off the stage in its mouth

    3. As you pass Obama say “That’s what you get Barry for not stooping low enough to kiss Muslim butts”

  • ted

    I am disappointed you were not in the video.
    Do you think Britain will drop the ban so you can pick up the award?

  • Robert C. Laity

    Obama IS Islamic himself. He isn’t afraid of Muslims. He is one of their own. Obama hates non-Muslims.

  • Florac Bosch

    Terwijl de islam gewelddadig oprukt vanuit Irak, Syrië, Somalië, Jemen,
    Turkije, Marokko en Libië tot in onze straten en nog meer Moslims uit
    islamitisch Midden- Oosten en Afrika richting Nederland komen, stemrecht en een
    verblijfsvergunning krijgen, hebben PVDA, D66, CDA en GL openlijk verklaard de
    islamitische immigratie te steunen!

    Politiek maakt dus zich wederom compleet ongeloofwaardig door de nutteloze
    acties tegen de jihadisten! 97% van de binnenkomende massa, behoort tot de
    verschillende sektes van salafisme! Hoe meer salafisten binnen, hoe meer
    jihadisten in Nederland. Hoe meer Salafistische megamoskeen, hoe eerder de
    Jihad (islamitische heilige oorlog tegen Nederlanders)! Moslims die haat en nijd verkondigen in de moskeen, want die zijn ook een
    gevaar voor de samenleving. Moskeeën worden gebruikt voor het verspreiden van
    haat tegen het gastland en de cultuur. Er zijn meer dan 9.000 moskeeën in
    Nederland en jonge moslims worden opgevoed aan de hand van een strijd tegen de
    ongelovigen. Moskee is de basis voor de deze Jihad! Wat zij op straks doen is vanuit
    hun ‘geloof’ gerechtvaardigd. Het is geen jeugdprobleem wat van gisteren is. Het
    is een oprukkend probleem waar niemand de handen mee aan vuil wil maken.

    Diederik Samsom, bezoekt zijn heilige paleis en roept op:’De extremisten
    misbruiken de islam.’, De islam hoort bij Nederland en is een vredelievende
    religie’ (Ook de stelling van het CDA en D66). Deze partijen willen de duizenden
    Mohammed aanhangers die hun partij rijk is niet ontvallen. De explosieve groei
    van het aantal geïmporteerde werkloze moslims in Nederland is hiervoor tekenend. De
    kern van Samson’s betoog komt precies neer op wat een jihadistische imam zegt.

    Terwijl bijkans de hele redactie van een satirisch blad vermoord was en
    onschuldige Joden als beesten waren neergeknald, blijft PVDA het schaamteloos
    opnemen voor de Islam. Hun eerste reactie op de moordpartij was wat de
    consequenties voor de Islam zouden zijn! Het zijn lafaards, leugenaars en

    Dankzij dit soort politici, dreigt in Nederland een soort midden-oosten land
    toestand te ontstaan. Overal in de steden zijn er moslimstrijders actief, imams
    en andere militanten zijn bezig om jonge mannen en vrouwen op te leiden! Veel
    jihadisten gebruiken de middelen van de gevestigde politieke partijen en
    overheids instellingen…Ze stellen onomwonden dat Nederland moet worden
    overgenomen. Moslims zouden nieuwe instroom bevorderen door meer bruiden uit een
    islamitische land te halen, hun kinderen als anti-Nederlands opvoeden etc..

    Huidige leiders hebben zo’n verschrikkelijke angst voor de realiteit van de
    islam dat ze zelfs het woord ‘islam’ niet in de mond durven nemen! Het bewijs
    van hun ‘moslimliefde’ was al lang te zien, door het aantal leden uit
    Moslimorganisaties! Met behulp van massieve druk uit Turkije en Arabische landen
    via de moskeeën worden veel moslimmilitanten als stemmentrekkers binnengehaald!
    Dankzij deze politiek in meerderheid, wordt de islamitische gevaar steeds groter
    in Nederland!

    Moslim gemeenschap is de bondgenoot van de PVDA, CDA, GL en D66!

    PVDA en D66 leiders zijn dwaas dat ze in hun eigen sprookjes blijven geloven,
    niet alleen op economisch- en Europees niveau, maar ook in termen van een
    religie als de islam. Ze blijven maar doorkletsen over een islam die niet

    Er bestaat geen radicale islam, de islam is radicaal, punt. De dwazen van het
    gehele PVDA en D66 ‘schip’ geloven allemaal dus in fabels, dat is duidelijk.
    Maar ook CDA!

    CDA is een van de hoofdverantwoordelijken van de teloorgang van ons mooie
    Nederland, eerst 30 miljard halen, stelen, of roven uit het ABP fonds (of hoe je
    dat ook wilt noemen) van de hardwerkende burger, dan ons mooie landje
    verkwanselen aan de Moslim Maffia! De hele oude politieke partijen, inclusief
    CDA, zijn allemaal leugenaars! Het CDA heeft mede met de PvdA en VVD gezorgd
    voor de massa-immigratie en nu moeten we bang zijn in eigen land. Hele wijken in
    grote steden zijn niet-Nederlands meer; niet erg als we er iets beters voor
    terugkregen. Maar wat hebben we gekregen: criminelen, Jodenhaat en

    Terwijl onze westerse “wereld” verdwijnt, zijn er nog massa’s mensen die hopen,
    dat er ook nog maar iets kan worden gered. Veel van die islam-zalvers gaan ervan
    uit dat de islam het uiteindelijk zal gaan winnen, dus beginnen ze maar alvast
    met heulen en collaboreren teneinde hun eigen hachje veilig te stellen. Met deze
    houding is er niets nieuw onder de zon, getuige de recente geschiedenis van

    Straattuig, het dragen van hoofddoeken als tegen vlag, schotelantennes voor de
    islamitische cultuur, moskee voor jihad, het oproepen tot gebed (propaganda voor
    jihad), en nu zwaar gewapende jihadisten in onze straten…!

    Er is gewoon een groot probleem en dat blijkt maar niet kleiner te willen worden.
    Moslim probleem of niet, feit is dat deze ‘lieverdjes’ voor een disproportionele
    gevaar en misbruik van onze sociale voorzieningen, inclusief zorg, zorgen.

    Wat is precies de reden waarom NL in 38 jaar tijd moest worden overspoeld met
    voornamelijk jihadisten uit achtergestelde moslimlanden?

    Ons land heeft nieuwe leiders nodig met een nieuwe visie. De gewone man heeft
    geen enkel vertrouwen meer in de huidige politiek, waar het beschermen van onze
    democratie vastloopt onder een smorende deken van politieke correctheid.
