Straight out of Ripley’s — but it’s real.
My lawyer, David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center, recently apprised me of this lawsuit that had been filed against me by Muslim prisoners in Michigan. It’s paranoid, outrageous, silly and laughable — and yet it’s a legitimate lawsuit.
The only reason it was dismissed was because the “plaintiffs” didn’t submit the filing fee or the correct form. As funny as it is, it does speak to the supremacist tendencies of their thinking, and the kneejerk tendency among Muslims in the U.S. and other Western countries to claim victim status, even as they’re victimizing non-Muslims.
Muslim prisoners in Michigan filed a lawsuit against Pamela Geller for “wearing a Poke a Dot Bikini In Front of our eyes. We are offended.” They demanded their freedom claiming their civil rights were violated. This Islamic supremacism is one and the same shared by the Muslim shooters at our free speech event in Garland, at the Christmas party in San Bernardino, the Paris concert hall, the jihad against Israel, the 9/11 terror attacks, and on and on. Same motive, same piety.
David Yerushalmi told me that I had been sued by one or possibly two Muslims apparently who appear to be guests of the Michigan Correctional Hotel and Spa. “They sued you because, inter alia, you wear a bikini to distract them…the court dismissed the complaint on its own because plaintiff(s) failed to file the requisite filing fee or file the correct form to have the fee waived.”

This lawsuit is comical, of course, but the attitudes and assumptions behind it aren’t – and they’re not limited to just these two Muslims. Rick Tocket Muhammad and Wayde Albright, even as they’re sitting in prison for crimes they committed, are claiming victim status.
In this, they’re imitating the response that we have come to expect from Muslim leaders in the United States in the wake of every jihad attack and foiled jihad plot here and across the world: instead of owning up to the ways in which Islamic texts and teachings incite believers to violence and promising to reform Islam and scrub the Quran of its texts espousing Jew-hatred, misogyny, and violence, they claim to be the victims of “anti-Muslim backlash.”
Muslim leaders victimize the victims — by trying to play the victim. It’s vicious.
Instead of Muslims joining with counter-jihadists and standing shoulder to shoulder with my colleagues and me, they engage in the second wave of jihad attacks — by attacking the victims yet again with trumped-up, fictional charges of “Islamophobia” and backlash-o-phobia.
These claims of victimhood aren’t as crude and silly as “Pamela Geller serves Pork to Muslim Inmates. Pamela Geller writes Cartoons in our Koran. Pamela Geller Rhymes with Pen and teller Making Fun of our Beards and Ankle plants,” but they’re just slightly more sophisticated versions of the same thing. And we see it again and again.
What we don’t see, meanwhile, is what we need to see: why is it that Muslim “moderates” never protest against the Islamic terrorism that they supposedly reject and oppose? Why are there never any mass Muslim protests against this savagery? They claim to reject it, so what are they doing within their communities to stop young Muslims from falling for this supposed “misunderstanding” of Islam?
The answer is: nothing. In Muslim communities and among Muslim leaders, they (like Rick Tocket Muhammad and Wayde Albright) spend much more time attacking and demonizing me than they do fighting against the doctrine of jihad that is threatening and killing non-Muslims in the U.S. and worldwide. And that is a stunning indictment of their supposed “moderation.”
