Trump Decries Attack on His Free Speech – What About Garland, Donald?

After Donald Trump excoriated me for our free speech event in Garland, Texas, Donald Trump expressed frustration on having to cancel his rally in Chicago on Friday night in a phone interview on MSNBC.
“It’s a little bit sad when you can’t have a rally in a major city in this country … What ever happened to freedom of speech? What ever happened to the right to get together?”
You were taunting the fascists, Donald.

Flashback: Donald Trump said, “I watched Pam earlier, and it really looks like she’s just taunting everybody. What is she doing drawing Muhammad? I mean it’s disgusting. Isn’t there something else they could be doing? Drawing Muhammad?…They can’t do something else? They have to be in the middle of Texas doing something on Muhammad and insulting everybody? What is she doing? Why is she doing it? It’s probably very risky for her — I don’t know, maybe she likes risk? But what the hell is she doing?”

I wasn’t surprised that Rubio blamed Trump because he is a shallow political animal, but I was surprised and disappointed that Cruz did. I understand that he is playing to win, but it undermines his integrity. Very bad move, Ted. Hugely disappointed in him. Ted backed us after Garland, so why not continue his principled stance on the First Amendment, especially the most protected speech, political speech?

Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced.

Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths. If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others.

“Protesters cheer when Trump rally canceled, jeer supporters,” Associated Press, March 12, 2016:

CHICAGO (AP) — Hundreds of jubilant protesters chanted victory cries and jeered at glum Donald Trump supporters as they filed out of an auditorium where the Republican presidential candidate abruptly canceled a campaign rally Friday night.

Outside, the tenor of hourslong protests shifted when one protester passed on word of the cancellation through a megaphone on the campus of the ethnically diverse University of Illinois at Chicago. The crowd roared in delight and began chanting: “We stopped Trump! We stopped Trump!”

The protesters closed in on the building, obstructing most of the exits just as Trump supporters began filing out. The Trump supporters had little choice but to push through the anti-Trump crowds that parted only slightly, yelling, “Racists go home!”…

“Cruz, Rubio and Kasich criticize Trump for creating ‘environment’ for Chicago protest,” by David Weigel, Washington Post, March 11, 2016:

One night after declining to criticize Donald Trump’s rhetoric toward the protesters at his rallies, his rivals for the Republican nomination, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio), all criticized the Republican front-runner.

Rubio, who is camped out in his home state in advance of the March 15 primary, told Megyn Kelly of Fox News that Trump was finding out that his “words have real consequences.” But roughly half of Rubio’s analysis was a criticism of the political left. After stating his appreciation for Chicago’s police, Rubio said that the protests needed to be put in context.

“This is Chicago, protesters are an industry,” he said. “It is clear, just from watching some of these images, that this was an organized effort, an orchestrated effort, from groups that wanted to disrupt this event, and Chicago is a hub for that sort of activity. I would also say that people have a right, whether you disagree with someone or what he’s about to say – and I certainly disagree with Donald Trump on many things, it’s why I’m running against him for president – you don’t have a right to take away the First Amendment right of people to speak freely. I think you’ve seen some of this on college campuses recently. There was an article, not long ago I think, that [conservative commentator] Ben Shapiro tried to speak on a campus, and they basically shut him down. So I think this is crossing over into the broader society, and it’s problematic.”

With that said, Rubio criticized Trump for his well-documented mockery of the people who interrupted his rallies.

“I wouldn’t say Mr. Trump is responsible for the events of tonight,” said Rubio, “but he is most certainly, in other events, has in the past used some pretty rough language, saying in the good old days we used to beat these people up, or I’ll pay your legal bills if you rough them up. So I think he bears some responsibility for the general tone.”

As Rubio was wrapping up, Cruz was standing outside a dinner event in Rolling Meadows, Ill., for an impromptu press conference. He took a harsher tone, significantly stepping up what he’d said to radio host Hugh Hewitt earlier that night.

“The responsibility for that lies with protesters, who took violence into their own hands. But in any campaign, responsibility starts at the top. Any candidate is responsible for the culture of a campaign. And when you have a campaign that disrespects the voters, when you have a campaign that affirmatively encourages violence, when you have a campaign that is facing allegations of physical violence against members of the press, you create an environment that only encourages this sort of nasty discord,” Cruz said, citing an event in Florida that had already led to a criminal complaint, but not heretofore been mentioned by a rival candidate….

Asked if Trump should have gone ahead with the rally, Cruz paused for a moment, then said the decision should have been based on public safety.

“But I think a campaign bears responsibility for creating an environment when the candidate urges supporters to engage in physical violence, to punch people in the face,” said Cruz. “The predictable consequence of that is that it escalates, and today is unlikely to be the last such instance. We saw, earlier today, in St. Louis, over 30 arrested. That’s not how our politics should occur. You know, the city of Chicago in 1968 saw some ugly days, when politics descended into hatred and incivility and even violence. It is my hope that in 2016 we can appeal to our better angels, to avoid going down that road once again.”…

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, whose scheduled MSNBC town hall was pre-empted by the Chicago chaos, issued a statement late Friday night that pinned the blame on Trump himself.

“Tonight the seeds of division that Donald Trump has been sowing this whole campaign finally bore fruit, and it was ugly,” said Kasich. “Some let their opposition to his views slip beyond protest into violence, but we can never let that happen. I urge people to resist that temptation and rise to a higher level….

    Trump encouraging violence at his rallies. This is a cult leader who will not take responsibility for his statements, and actions. This is not leadership.
    http://mashable.com/2016/03/12/trump-rally-incite-violence/#e__XZwDkyiqE

    • Kevin Ytza

      If KKK shows up at an Obama rally and ppl beat up KKK does Obama have to take responsibility for his statements? Ridiculous! We are a free speech country. What’s happening to this place???

      • livingengine

        Part of the problem is people will not accept the fact that Donald Trump’s appeal is based on giving people permission to be ugly, and violent. If you watch the video above it is absolutely clear Trump is encouraging violence at his rallies, and this has been going on for months now.

        • BrunoPBuhr

          They were organized to create disruption and violence, the protesters fear the end of PC. They are showing their true nature. Evidently you haven’t been watching BLM and Obama’s demonization of anyone who disagreed with his PC Islamist insanity. Trump was uniformed ignorant and incredibly wrong when he criticized Ms Geller! He is experiencing the cruelty and abuse she has overcome for years. He will have to apologize publicly,but not today.

        • That is most certainly not his appeal. It is one of ootomism, inspiration, feeling like we have a chance to be great again. It is about jobs, and getting rid of the corruption in our government. I think you are projecting your own anger. Trump rallies are happy and uplifting.

        • Patti York

          That is a LOAD of BS. Watch the rallies LIVE on OAN,,,people CRASH them every day and try to disrupt them, then he yells to the cops and security to remove them. He is NOT responsible for the actions of others.. That is what this whole article really is all about.

        • livingengine

          I think I have this story out of focus, although I don’t
          like Trump, and I think justifiably so, this story is about the “Left”, and
          Muslims using violence to shut down free speech. This story is more about
          right, and wrong than politics. Shutting down Trump’s rally is just another
          sign of the Left’s preoccupation with power, and force. It doesn’t tell you
          anything about Trump.

          If we weren’t allowed to listen to Trump, we wouldn’t know
          about the growing number of warning signs coming from him. We wouldn’t know
          about his terrible impersonation of a Christian, or his repeated, shameless
          exploitation of the memory of 911, his attacking Pamela, and not ISIS, his
          shifting, drifting position on the “refugees”, his failure to reassure people
          regarding his position with David Duke, and that’s just the short list.

          The way to confront Trump is by listening to him, and
          responding to what he says, not by shutting him up.

          Expose him, don’t censor him.

  • Armaros

    This is a fair point. But Cruz and Rubio dropped the ball on this, defending Movon/CAIR/Communist thugs who would have come to their event had they been in first place !

    • Dravaa

      VERY disgusted with Rubio and Cruz now. I know they want to win, to knock out Trump, but all they’re doing in giving Trump a black eye is turning the Republican candidates into an ugly sideshow, not a party of winners.

      • Armaros

        Before Trump even announced his candidacy, BLM made it clear that they will not allow a GOP Convention to take place in Cleveland.

        Cruz should have known that….and he did…probably…

        Obama and his Cult will not go easily and probably not even peacefully. No matter who wins on behalf of the GOP.

        • BrunoPBuhr

          The dismantling of progressive lies blm and restoration of common decency with American dignity would scare any progressive half to death!

          • Lonnie Robinson

            Because they wallow in lies. willie lynch is a massive lie that progressive black folk use to foment hatred of white folk. Hence the huge ‘log’ on their shoulders.

      • Millionmileman

        Wait a minute this morning Ted and Marco condemned this affront of free speech as un-American.

      • Don Grantham

        There won’t be a winner in this Presidential race, at least not in the traditional sense. Instead, it will feature whoever lost less than the other losers.

        • BrunoPBuhr

          More likely who will survive the backroom deals! If they break their agreement or dump him at the convention, Chicago will seem like a warm memory! Can you say party burned to the ground AND an independent run?

          • joe1429

            If they try and screw trump, i believe millions will take to the streets!!

          • Lonnie Robinson

            yes— burn baby burn.

      • Jane

        As Dr Robert Jeffress said on Judge Jeannine, FOX news tonight, “Rubio and Cruz are exploiting the mob that showed up in Chicago to prop up their failing campaigns. They should be standing up for freedom of speech and the first amendment.”

        Dr Robert Jeffress also mentioned how Trump now has an intelligent, committed Christian, Ben Carson supporting him. I think Carson is a sincere, class act. Trump is fortunate to have his support.

  • Kevin Ytza

    What Trump said about Garland was a question, not really an attack.

    • Dravaa

      The media call Pamela Geller a “racist” too — should Donald Trump, a politician now, have to endorse that before he is elected? No, he has to merely be stupefied by it. His endorsement of Pamela Geller would only give his haters who want to pretend he’s a racist more trumped-up ammunition. He’s in a vulnerable enough position himself already, without borrowing someone else’s vulnerabilities to the msm now too.

      • Kevin Ytza

        The most intelligent comment Ive read online allday. And Ive read a lot of decent comments today in the wake of Chicago.

    • pamelageller

      Seriously???
      Watch and learn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgFD03kAA28

      • BrunoPBuhr

        Trump is starting to see what you’ve been experiencing for years. I hope he will publicly apologize for the horrible way he treated you. Thank you for your courage and brilliant defense of the truth! He needs your guidance strength tenacity and class. The last may be an impossible mission. If he wins, he will need you as an advisor. Your depth of understanding is what we need in the next administration.

        • Armaros

          This would be the time to ask.

          I see Trump supporters and surrogates using links to Jihadwatch and I can also detect a level of enlightenment on the part of Trump since Garland and the beginning of the campaign.

          He is very clever by using questions to advance his argument that “Islam hates us” ,,,

          ” Anderson…you should look into that”

          • bargogx1

            I think he’ll eventually come around. He does seem to be headed in the right direction.

        • wilypagan

          I know. Pamela could offer him a lot of insight.

        • wildjew

          “I hope he will publicly apologize for the horrible way he treated you.”

          Don’t count on it.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            He’s the only candidate not hiding the truth about Islam so I can hope.

          • JoeInAR

            Carson is wise to Islam.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            Hopefully he will be part of a Trump administration.

          • ladywarrior

            All he did was question her actions….is that a crime now? I too worried about her and her in-your-face to ISIS…Very brave, but horribly risky. I’ve been following her for years…she’s an awesome woman…..but she’s dead wrong about Lying Rafael Ted Cruz….dead wrong….

          • BonniePrinceCharlie

            Watch the video above. He condemned her.

          • Jeanne Ballard

            Pamela Geller is not “in your face’ she is airing what Islam is all about and has a right to do so !

          • Lonnie Robinson

            Freedom of speech and the willingness to fight back is the price of freedom. And when you fight back there is always a chance that you might die for the cause of freedom. Nobody wants to die FOR ANY reason. but if you don’t fight tyranny then it will envelope you. And once that happens you are lost. Freedom is hard to win and easily lost. Think on that lady warrior. :)

        • Robert Bayer

          They have a lot in common as both are risking their lives to save America.

          I will keep sending notes to Trump HQs about getting that apology to Geller …

          • Don’t you know that Ms. Geller endorsed Ted Cruz? Are you pretending that she did so? Are you a Drone?

          • Robert Bayer

            I know. No. No.

          • ladywarrior

            A lot of people have been fooled by the Bible waving Cruz who is the long time boy of the Bushs….he’s a Trojan Horse that they put in place in the event Jebbie fell on his face….

            Look at the decades of history between Cruz and Bushs….

            I believe Pamela can be fooled just like a lot of people by Lying Ted….I’m giving her a pass because Cruz is such a great liar.

            Dr. Ben Carson wasn’t fooled….he’s endorsed Trump….

          • Exactly whom are you attempting to convince with your post?

            Ben Carson is, apparently, a fool.

          • ladywarrior

            You sound like the pot calling the kettle black….oh wait…you’re a troll….so you win….you’re a fool….

          • Do you read out-loud? You can’t hear anything I write.

            I suspect that you haven’t heard what Trump said about Carson before the Iowa vote. I can send it to you if you like. I have it in mp3 format.

          • Lonnie Robinson

            Go back to your liberal-brown-shirt web site and let the adults have a decent discussion :)

          • Lonnie Robinson

            Excellent riposte! :)

          • ladywarrior

            Thanks. :0)

          • Lonnie Robinson

            Don’t mention it.

          • Lonnie Robinson

            So what?

          • Lonnie Robinson

            EXCELLENT IDEA :)

        • Does it matter whether Trump apologizes? No. Drones don’t have admirable principles.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            Drones don’t but humans do. He should apologize because MS Geller absolutely deserves a public apology! Is an apology enough, no! An acknowledgement of MS Gellar’s hard work, sacrifice and courage bringing her into the center of a national and international dialogue would be!

          • When I write “Drones”, I refer to humans; not to be confused with the mechanical objects called drones.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            It was an attempt at humor as well as a disavowal of your description of Trump.

          • What description of Trump? The subject has been drone-like followers.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            It’s been drone like responses to a the followers actually.

          • Are you a Drone?

          • BrunoPBuhr

            Really? Can we bring the intellectual level up a bit? Better yet, go away.

          • Do you understand that Drones don’t care what Trump does or says or does not do or say and all the rest? This is very much like the vote-for-the-first-black-President-at-any-cost Obama-Drones. If the shoe that seems to fit you is uncomfortable, then complain to someone else.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            You are the one droning on! Cease and desist!

          • I really did peg you exactly. “Thank me!”

            You are a legend in your own hand!

        Ms Pamela, I’m an old rabbit hunter, learned in hunting even with dogs, you had to kick the bushes to flush out the rabbits. OK, it is war between the two of you, i get it,see both sides. Still say both of you are good people. We need to see and speak up when wrong and fight to the death when we are right. I have a real dilemma here. See both of you fighting for the same goals. Lets unite and move forward together. We have no time for a fight between two folks seeking the same goals. I’ve also posted this before,” Muslims have been coming after, killing and crucifying my ancestors since their beginning 1400 years ago. I am a Maronite Catholic, oldest rite in the Catholic church. Ancestors spoke Aramaic, the language of Christ. They were the Phoenicians, they that sailed he oceans, spread the alphabet and built Carthage and even sailed to the Americas prior to Columbus. We are not Arabs but over the years because of the Arabs dominating the area, adopted or what ever, the Arabic tongue. 140 years ago, the time of the Ottoman empire, my ancestors fled , or if they stayed would have either been massacred, beheaded or crucified. This Nation has been good to us. We have fought in all the wars and yes even I am a veteran. Some have not come home. I LOVE THIS NATION, I took an oath to defend this Nation, and if need be SHALL DIE FOR THIS NATION. why you might ask, because I AM AN AMERICAN.!” Support Israel 100% Ms Pamela, support you 100% Let us seek a way to move forward in peace with Trump! He is learning.

          Trump’s learning? Yes,that learning began just 2 days ago in Chicago. Pam’s been under a fatwa a lot longer than that.

          • farflung

            Paul, yes I know, for I have been threatened many times during my life with death and was sitting in the waiting room while my wife was undergoing open heart surgery when the planes hit the twin towers. Man jumped up and wanted to kill me not once but twice. Do I understand the ignorance and the rage, yes. Please reread the post and remember, I don’t give a rats azz about you. If the boat was sinking, you are the first one over the side to lighten the load. My goal is education and to stop this colonization by these savages.

          • Mr Paul Middleton

            Well, we’re on the same anti-Islam side of course so no need to start being abusive with me. Trump is great, but I’m glad he now sees sharia blasphemy intimidation for what it is, finally, after attempted shutdowns on his free speech by nutjobs, after his know-nothing attack on Pam post-Garland. Trump death threats will be forthcoming, watch my words.

          • farflung

            If you have read the link I posted by the Southern Poverty Law Center, notice how they describe Ms Pam, and also they are not friends of these women. Their goal is to protect Muslims, so you must as some say read between the lines, and not be guided by propaganda.

          • Mr Paul Middleton

            Southern Poverty Law Centre? Pro-Islamic jihad bullcrap. Don’t you know anything? And you accuse me of propaganda – how absurd you are. Don’t assume I don’t know, where Islam’s concerned,I’ve forgotten more about that subject than you’ll ever know; and I certainly don’t want a turnip like you – albeit a supposed infidel turnip – teaching me, through quotes from the facking Southern Poverty (sharia) Law Centre.

      • Lonnie Robinson

        Pamela this video shows that Trump got what he had coming. I’m still voting for him because I can’t throw the baby out with the wash. I am however angry that he trashed you. What he doesn’t understand is that he trashed us as well.

    • Ben Hur

      I used to think the same thing as Trump. I was against Islam but I thought it was not a good idea not to taunt them at all. As I studied Islam more and listened to Geller, Spencer et al. I realized the cartoon comp. was the correct thing to do. Any one who will kill you for a cartoon will kill you anyway. This is the truth of Islam. They want us dead, dhimied or deranged. Hopefully Trump will learn and come back to the people who actually know what they are talking about and apologize. I did.

      • Bradley Lexvold

        Don’t think of it as taunting, think of it as aggressively trying to change their minds.

        • BonniePrinceCharlie

          Think of it as standing up for freedom of speech – everybody’s freedom of speech.

        • Reality again

          Exposing their nature.

    • Dean

      I’m sorry, there can be no question or hesitation about defending everyone’s freedom of speech especially when it comes to criticizing religion or politics.

    • BonniePrinceCharlie

      No it wasn’t. He condemned her – in most ungentlemanly terms – for instigating this attack and bringing it on herself by holding a cartoon competition. Watch the video below.

      • Kevin Ytza

        When Donald Trump “attacks”, youll know it and we won’t be discussing it on a blog. He’s pretty much the most famous “attacker” in the world right now.

        • BonniePrinceCharlie

          Donald attacked Pamela when he put her down on air, when he accused her of being self-serving and bringing this jihadist attack on herself, of provoking the jihadists instead of defending her right to freedom of speech. Watch the video embedded in this blog. But I agree with you that he’s one of the world’s great attackers. I look forward to him demolishing Cruz and Clinton. I’ll be watching with anticipation on this side of the Atlantic.

          PS He’s also a bit of a hypocrite. It’s ok for him to say that Muslims should be banned but not ok for Pamela to try and alert the American people about the creeping influence of sharia law.

          • Cabai Rawit

            Trump spoke with little knowledge about ISLAM that time, now he know more about ISLAM and he will find out more about ISLAM when he is a President of U.S.

          • BonniePrinceCharlie

            It amazes me how few American – and Brits – know about Islam and its ambitions as laid out in the Koran to dominate the world, and how many were quick to condemn people like Pamela and Robert Spencer who tried to raise awareness and continue to do so. I’d like to see Donald apologise to Pamela for speaking out against her in his ignorance.

          • Kevin Ytza

            His Muslim ban is temporary, limited, for the purposes of “seeing what’s going on.”

            Smart, smart, smart. Everything he does is smart.

            He doesnt have the same vocation as Ms. Geller. Being a deep-thinker on Islam is not Trump’s role in the Division of Labor.

    • Mr Paul Middleton

      No mate. Trump got Garland wrong. Simple.

  • old003

    Keep the faith Pamela.You two are fighters and on a parallel journey.

  • Lets’s hope todays attack on Trump is a learning experience. But Pamela, he did say Islam hates us? Can’t you give him some credit for realizing there is a problem with Islam and the free world. We all learn a little more everyday. I see Trump as emerging into something good. Reagan was considered a joke at first until he started gaining the ears of the people.Trump is doing this. Obama is the real problem. He’s the community organizer. His Moveon.org folks are the ones attacking trump and his right to speak. Heck, Maybe he didn’t get it right about Garland, but he sure sounds like he’s getting it more right about Islam then the rest of those Rino GOP candidates and we know where Clinton and Bernie stand. Thanks Pamela for doing what so few dare do.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            islam is for subhuman violent fools, it is easy to understand and ridicule. Criticism of the qur’an writes itself.

          • BrunoPBuhr

            Ya that’s why we’re considered extremists and the vast majority of the people in the world don’t understand. That’s Ms Geller is banned from speaking engagements, TRAVEL, and doesn’t have the freedom to go anywhere without protection. We all have read the Koran and thrown up. Millions still think Islam means “peace”, not SUBMISSION BY EVERYONE!. We read Islam’s history and see nothing but violence and depravity. Most of the world beautiful people in flowing robes.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Islam, if you follow the qur’an to its insane violent conclusion has to end in destruction and death. It is a cult of the dammed, not of creation and aspiration to perfection. muhammad was right, hell is mostly full of muslims.
            There will be no one of you who will not enter it (Hell).
            This was an inevitable decree of your Lord.

    Predicted by Breitbart. Read it all.

  • wildjew

    Donald Trump not only condemned Pamela, he will be the “neutral guy” between Israel and Islamic jihadists. Mr. Trump cannot take sides between civilized peoples and savages. I don’t trust a thing Mr. Trump says. He is a con-artist. He is a demagogue and an opportunist. When he calls Pamela an obnoxious blowhard, when he calls Senator Cruz a liar and very nasty person, he is projecting.

    • Aaron

      To “wildjew”: Trump didn’t ever say he’d be “the ‘neutral guy’ between Israel and the Islamic jihadists.”

      What a reprehensible lie. I hate false witness, and I heard him on this, not second- or third-hand.

      Trump is respecting Israel by saying he will approach any NEGOTIATION as a neutral party, rather than bossing Israel like so many US presidents have done. Believe me that Israelis are totally sick of it. Also–in a negotiation you don’t gain anything by starting out with your position as an already-known factor. Trump’s also said he’s not even sure anything can come of negotiating since one side is taught to hate from birth. We all know who he’s talking about.

      • Aaron

        And it’s not Jews.

        • Aaron

          And I mean Israelis are sick of American presidents acting like Israel is theirs to boss.

  • PAMELA…PLEASE get over Trump’s comments regarding the “Draw Muhammad” event. It was a classic “speak first, understand later” reaction that is typical for him. If you spoke with Trump face-to-face for an hour, I think you could educate him a lot, and perhaps hear your voice echoed in his public statements, as the victim families of illegal aliens have so powerfully. Just a thought.

    • Do you think there was any cognition behind those comments by Trump? Is this a trick question? You bet it is!

      Do you think that Trump shouldn’t be held to account for his own words? Did you hear what he said about Ben Carson? It was awful. I’ve never heard that kind of thing said about another candidate.

      Why do I keep thinking of Barnum & Bailey?

    • Patti York

      Actually she does not have to get over anything. Her point about the squelching of free speech is as true today as it was the day of the cartoon contest. Its Trump that really should swallow his pride and give this whole issue much much careful consideration,,I think he still owes her an apology.

  • Pamela you are courage personified. Whether Trump admits it or not. I was thinking of you today while reading over last night’s events.
    That said, I am praying that Trump is not taken out, and I mean literally, because he is such a huge threat to the globalists. I believe he will stop immigration like he said. Just know that you have made an impact whether he gives you credit or not.

  • Patti York

    The same problem has bitten him in the butt. Cruz is NOT real Pam. He s brand manufactured by Goldman Sachs. nothing more. His remarks about this are vile.

  • Robert Bayer

    Trump owes an apology to Geller and hopefully this is a wake up call for him.

    Nevertheless … Trump looks like the only person running who is not a pos warmed over.

    There literally is no one else to trust.

    • You’ve got to be kidding us. You will trust somebody who gave contribution money to detestable Democrats?

      • Robert Bayer

        Yes. Who else do you trust more?

  • This–the Garland, TX subject–is the first thing that told me there was something very wrong with Donald Trump. Now, after all that has been added to that very something wrong with Trump, it is clear to anyone not comatose that he should not become President.

    The thing about Trumpeters is that…..well, they very much remind me of a certain rather large group of people who were going to vote for that first black President no matter what they did or did not know about him. They did not care. They were the Drones. Trump has Drones.

    This thing about the disruptive, leftist agitators,….they are the flies attracted to the feces. That’s my observation.

Spoiled, self-absorbed, addled, texting/tweeting, selfie-snapping, life-ignorant punks who’ve never been required by their overindulgent parents to do anything as useful as running even a lemonade stand.

    My two cents: Pt. 1

    Normally I don’t make comments after so many people have beaten me to it, but here it goes.
    ———-
    Terror works every time it’s tried.

    Bad guy: “If you tell the cops, I’ll kill your dad.”

    Bad guy: “If you do this, or that, I’ll burn your house down.”

    In Israel tonight:

    Hamas hacks into Israeli TV and threatens: ‘Terror will never end’
    Gaza’s Islamist rulers interrupt private satellite feed of Channel 2 ‘Big Brother’ to tell Israelis to ‘get out of our country’. Rockets fired soon after

    By Times of Israel staff March 12, 2016, 11:37 am 23

    These thugs in Chicago last night used terror to get what they wanted. And it worked so well they will probably try it again somewhere else. They will know if their idea worked If Trump suddenly becomes more kind. More gentle. Less “racist.”
    ———-
    My two cents: Pt. 2

    Mr. Trump loooooves to blow his own horn. And he loooooves free speech. Unless of course It’s Miss Geller’s free speech. Then not so much.

    Mr. Trump has put the “H” in hypocrite. No bout a doubt it. And I am fairly convinced that he will say just about anything to get elected. No matter how bizarre.

    But is this case I am more upset with these other goonballs. Instead of attacking Trump, they should be attacking the rioters. The intimidators. The terrorist.

    Cruz; Rubio; Kasich. These men should be enthusiastically defending freedom of speech. They should hang together with Trump to show these Chicago terrorist, and other terrorist, that they will not be intimidated.

    OK. That’s all for now. Goodnight.

  • Aaron

    Pamela, on your continuing rampage against Trump, I would encourage you to do teshuva. The way you’re carrying on is embarrassing, and it’s totally beneath you. It’s frustrating and borders on stereotype, that you’re still fussing about it. Must we assume, considering your “turn-the-other-cheek-Christian” colleague, Robert Spencer, has already said that he himself “would NEVER forgive Donald Trump even if he came begging on hands and knees,” that “I told you so” grudge-holding is the order of the day now, at Pamela Geller? I find that it’s getting really stale. It’s definitely a terribly unfortunate stance for you to promote, considering all the good that could have been accomplished had you chosen to take the high road and used it as a springboard to educate Trump in a respectable and honest way, as well as everyone else. But a decision was made to make it personal. Too bad.

    At this point it seems you will never be able to grasp that Trump was misled about the Garland event by people he once trusted. Nor do you understand that he was disgusted that the jihadis reacted the way they did. It wasn’t about you. At all the debates and rallies he takes a very strong stand against the Islamic threat to the Free World, and you’re still griping and boo-hoo-ing about his ignorant slight. Why can’t you just get past it? No one will ever be good enough for Pamela? Even if they learn they were wrong? Shame on that. And on you. Then you say in your defense (in the video you linked to below, when speaking to the media) that you’re “not denigrating Islam.” Really? And why not? You have a right to denigrate a so-called religion that advocates the killing of Jews, child abuse, rape, slavery, and all the rest. I would hope you WOULD denigrate Islam. It deserves to be denigrated.

    While you’re busy screeching about Trump, Trump is busy condemning vile Islam just like you, and then he goes ahead and donates $100,000 for ambulance motorcycles to United Hatzalah in Israel. Yet you continue to bash him.

    No one cares who you vote for Pamela, but constantly harping on this thing with Trump is making the rest of the group of counter-jihad educators seem like a group of buffoons. Also, you do realize the jihadis forces are very happy that you’re doing this, don’t you? Ridiculing a powerful man who is coming out so strongly against them? Why, its their lucky day! Not supporting Trump for president is your business, but continuing to misrepresent and complain when Trump is speaking so clearly on this issue, only weakens the momentum on getting the word out about the threat. How sad.

    I do agree with you that it’s truly disappointing that Ted Cruz is blaming Trump for the GEORGE SOROS-BILLY AYERS MoveOn.org/BLM violent shut-down on free speech in Chicago. Never mind, dear Ted, that Nazi George Soros (with his BFF Obama and their friend Erdogan) is orchestrating the Islamic invasion of Europe. Rubio and Kasich too, against Trump in Chicago. Kasich, former managing director of the failed and destructive Lehman Brothers, is now getting funding from Soros, so I guess it’s not too surprising about him–but Cruz and Rubio? Horrible of them.

    So why IS Cruz blaming Trump for the bad actions by these far-leftist agitators? Well, maybe it’s because Ted really is an Establishment man from decades back–Princeton, Harvard, domestic policy advisor for the Bush campaign, and he met his wife Heidi in the Bush administration. She was foreign affairs advisor to Condi Rice before going over to Goldman Sachs where she enjoys a high position. In 2005 we saw beautiful Gush Katif turned into GAZA under Bush/Rice. Do I need to remind you of that Pamela? Former CIA Chad Sweet is the one running Ted’s campaign–and he’s the same guy who originally recruited Heidi for Goldman Sachs, and the CFR. And not surprisingly, Cruz supports ObamaTrade:
    https://m.soundcloud.com/breitbart/breitbart-news-saturday-stephen-miller-february-26-2016 All of this is bad for the US and bad for Israel.

    Ted Cruz also cosponsored the Corker Bill, which, in direct violation of the Constitutional delineation of powers, stealthily diverted Senate power regarding the Iran Deal. Ted essentially paved the way for Iran to build the bomb and to fund more terror worldwide. There’s a new intifada in Israel thanks to Iran–now flush with money from Obama’s Iran Deal. But Ted helped make that “Deal” possible. Now he skates free, and because of the complexity of the bill, he can “plausibly deny” he is responsible in any way. But some of us know better. There are plenty of Persians who know how bad this is, and really, Cruz knew exactly what he was doing when he helped with it. So I conclude he knows what he’s doing with the Chicago issue. https://youtu.be/dT-PAV95Sus

    Then there’s a lot of talk coming out about Ted’s religious delusions of grandeur, and a lot people are very concerned. We’ve seen this kind of thing before, Pamela, and it usually doesn’t end well for us.

We’ve been following you for years, and in all honesty, this new direction will only have the effect of minimizing your impact. But–as they say: to each his own…

  • Dean

    Trump’s response to Garland was shameful as well as his threats of libel lawsuits and his promise to use his influence to change the libel laws if he is elected president. He doesn’t know squat about the freedom of speech and probably doesn’t care if it doesn’t affect him. However, the response of his political opponents to the recent rally invasions is also shameful especially coming from Cruz. Because we have had living Constitution judges for a long time, almost nothing can be done to the demonstrators because protest speech trumps privacy and property rights. Scalia would instruct Cruz and others that the original intent regarding the freedom of speech was just about anything was OK so long as it was done on your own time and on your own dime. The newest edition of fascist brown shirts are only warming up for Trump since he is the American front runner but watch for it to increase with whomever wins the Republican/American nomination.

  • Rocky Lucchetta

    I’m a Trump fan. He’s been very successful in business and that takes some smarts. And he’s strong, something that has been sorely lacking during the Obama years. And I believe him when he says he will take the Chinese to task for their business dealings. But the icing on the cake is his stand on muslim immigration, which is the greatest challenge of our times. People in the U.S. need to take this seriously. Go to youtube and watch the video ‘Muslims attack Christians at Arab Fair in Dearborn Michigan’, for a real eye-opener. If it doesn’t make you mad or feel ill you must be cold to the core.
    But Pamela, I think you got the ‘Donald’ on this one. With his stand on immigration, he shouldn’t be criticizing anyone who shares his belief, which he’s made quite public.

  • harbidoll

    as he saw Pamela’s popularity really increased, he learned!

  • Drew the Infidel

    There is plenty of room for all four candidates to show some political maturity. Violations of First Amendment guarantees are despicable enough but for Rubio, Cruz, and Kasick to stoop to that raghead philosophy of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is totally off the charts.

  • stephen5970

    Has everyone forgotten the 1968 Democratic National Convention and the riots because of it?

    Before Democrats open their mouths about what happened with Trump, they have a sorry history of their own. A much worse history of their own.

    Sadly, free speech has become “something I demand but you are not permitted to have”. As William F. Buckley Jr. put it: “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”

  • Donald Trump was in error when he criticized you for taunting. Hopefully Chicago has shown him why he was mistaken. Now it is time for you to compare Cruz and Trump and hopefully rethink your endorsement. Donald Trump may not be a man for all times but he is certainly the man for this time in American history. Trump has the particular skill set necessary to expose the establishment on the right and on the left including the mainstream media who are complicit in the deconstruction of America. Donald Trump is the only candidate who can reverse the downward trajectory of America at this moment in time. Vote for him.

    Ms Pamela, sometimes we look at things through narrow eyes, true for the sake of repetition, Trump was wrong to be critical of you, however, we now need to consolidate behind Trump. He is the only one that will take the Muslims on. Lets get him in office first then sort out the differences.

  • BonniePrinceCharlie

    Cruz, Rubio and Kasich – aka the Canadian, Little Marco and the Who? – demonstrated their total lack of integrity by blaming Donald Trump for the violence in Chicago instead of condemning those who sought to silence him. Sanders and Clinton likewise bit I expect nothing better from the Democrats.

    I am all in favour of people objecting to what others have to say and to protest but the kind of intimidation was saw in Chicago is elsewhere is reminiscent of the thuggery associated with the Nazis in the 1930s and we all know where that led.

    Freedom of speech for one side only is not freedom of speech. I may not like what some people say and how they say it but provided they stay within the law, I will defend their right to say it. That’s democracy.

    As for Donald and Garland, I suspect he may have changed his tune having been on the receiving end.

  • Ichabod Crain

    Pamela – you do such a wonderful job fighting for free speech and fighting Islamization of America, it is a shame that your own web site sabotages your efforts.

    As I read this article, I wanted to imagine that some Trump supporter in his inner circle could even bring this article to Trump’s attention, but unfortunately, THAT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. Nobody is ever going to bother trying to navigate this site unless they are a dedicated fan, because it is so loaded down with commercials, pop-unders and self playing videos that it is unnavigable. Then in the end you are really only preaching to the choir.

    I am using a state of the art desktop computer and a high speed internet connection, yet it is nearly impossible to scroll through your articles, with Shockwave regularly crashing and frame rates of 2 or 3 frames per second on the video clips that do manage to load. All this before we even get to Disqus that your server is too underpowered to drive.

    You can’t be earning any significant amount of money from these commercials, because your site is totally crippled it is so loaded down. I would suggest just a few quality commercials and no self loading videos or pop-ups would double the traffic and have no significant negative impact on revenue. In fact, you will likely find revenue increase in the form of donations if you provide a quality experience for your readers. Your message is too important to be buried under such a tremendous load of commercial crap.

      I might (probably will) turn the president’s page November in the event Trump is our nominee. I cannot afford to have (what I fear he will do to this country) on my conscience as I had on my conscience what George W. Bush did (the lies he told about Islam and Israel; Bush’s unforgivable betrayal of Israel in behalf of the Saudis) on my conscience. I was complicit in the things Bush did because I voted for him. Trump has already said he will not take sides between Israel and murderous jihadists. What else shall I look for?

  • Wayne Ville

    Well Pam, there is a difference, you were poking muslims in the eye, Donald is simply saying we should vet them before we let them into the country. His comments were more about your safety than anything. I do think he was a little over the top in his comments, but you are overly sensitive on this. Do the right thing, reach out to Trump, I think you will find that he is on your side more than ANY of the rest.

    • wildjew

      Don’t you find it interesting, the king of taunting, ridicule and mocking says she was taunting everyone?

      • Wayne Ville

        What I find interesting is that people keep harping on a single issue when Trump is by far the best candidate. There are no perfect candidates but all of the rest are awful. I am from the midwest and I don’t care for the speaking/writing patterns of either Geller or Trump but I am adult enough to know that both are on the correct side of the larger issues.

        • βιβλία

          Wayne, it’s an obvious generalization to claim that “there is no perfect candidate”. The point of PG’s remark about Trump is that he’s basically the same as Cruz and Rubio in terms of his oily willingness to appease the PCMC crowd. Of course, that oiliness is exactly what everyone should expect from a lifelong go-getter and arrogant self-promoter.

          Trump’s reaction last year shows that when given an opportunity to act expediently in a self-serving way, Trump will throw a messenger of relvant truth under a bus. This makes Trump an utterly UNRELIABLE partner and leader. Millions of Trump supporters are going to learn all of this between now and November, and some of them will be so disgusted by it, and the similiarity to the rest of the GOP that they’ll just stay home. The feckless, rotten GOP will thereby receive the dessert it deserves: Another big loss.

          Death to the GOP. America needs a new political party to stand up to the bullying left, to cancel Islamization, AND to roll back the rigging of commerce that BS pretends to oppose.

          • Wayne Ville

            He just came out and said a large number of muslims are against us. Show me one other candidate with the stones to do that.

          • βιβλία

            Trump is a “candidate with the stones”? Oh, puh-lease. He’s just another self-promoter looking to win a popularity contest. If Trump had “stones”, he would have argued more or less as follows:

            ‘If Islam is intrinsicially criminal, then why should we not call every Muslim and every Muslimah—whether knave or dupe—a criminal, too?’

            I trust that you won’t quibble with my suggestions that Islam is a criminal enterprise and that EVERY supporter of a criminal enterprise is a criminal. True, we should sort the criminals of Islam according to their status as knave or dupe, just as we would sort the members of a milita which recruits child soldiers. In such a case, the leaders and loyal adults are knaves, and the children, dupes who must be separated from the knaves if possible. Nevertheless, the children are criminals, and if one is found pointing its weapon at you, you should not hesitate at that moment to shoot it.

            Let’s face the truth together: Trump is a common shifty go-getter with an amateur’s knack for demagogery.

          • Wayne Ville

            So vote for your guy Bernie and be quiet.

          • βιβλία

            Your hypothesis is silly. Very silly. BS is not my “guy”, and my remarks about Islam being criminal were sufficient to tip you off about this fact.
            I would concede, however, that the Bern is full of BS when he pretends to oppose “rigged” commerce. After all, there’s no worse form of rigged commerce than socialism. Further, if BS were genuinely interested in unrigging commerce, he’d be calling out the GOP for pretending that the old, old trick of incorporation with limited liability is a “free-market” feature.

      Don’t PANIC yet. Cruz just ruined his oily political career by taking the side of the bleeding heart murder mafia in its war on Trump. Through so doing Cruz announced to everyone in Texas that his seat in the Senate is up for grabs in November 2018, three months before the end of his term.

      Really, now. How many antileftist Texans will be able to cast a ballot for Cruz in Nov. 2018 without feeling sick to their stomachs?

      Of course, Pretty Boy Priebus and his cronies won’t the tea leaves correctly for at least another year, by which time the Democrats, who will see the window of opportunity clearly, will have several strong candidates lined up for the job of ejecting the GOP from a prized seat in the Senate.

    Why does Mr. Trump attract so many white supremacists, racists, white nationalists, anti-Semites, Israel-haters, etc.? They are ever present at Breitbart. What is it about Trump that these vile people are so attracted to him?

    • Reality again

      Because affirmative action, special privileges for anybody but whites, taxing of whites to import non-whites etcetera are all unjust.

      That’s why.

      I support Trump because he recognizes these injustices and will correct them.

      We are not evil because we built this country. We are not evil by nature of the fact that we are intelligent. We are not evil because we want to celebrate the accomplishments of members of our race, just as any person of any color does.

      Why ar you anti white????

      Why does Obama attract so many black panthers? Why are so many racist blacks, who judge whites only by the color of their skin attracted to Obama?

    Yes, Trump is a self-aggrandizing capitalist hypocrite.

  • I respectfully disagree. Donald Trump is distinctly different from every other Republican and Democratic candidate. He cannot be bought. In fact, he has been buying influence from politicians for years which is why he poses such a threat to both the left and the right. Donald Trump exposes their corrupt dealings. Donald Trump is more like the exceptional coach who has also been a player – he sees life from both sides of the equation. It is fascinating that the left, the right, and the mainstream media are all trying to discredit him – that speaks volumes.

    • βιβλία

      Trump is “distinctly different”?! The fact that DT has the skills of both player and coach in the sport of political racketeering does not make him the better choice. Instead, it shows that Trumph is about as rotten as any member of the bipartisan league could be.

      Dump Trump.

    Pamela,I saw instantly why you were right to do the Muhammad cartoon contest–just as the winner’s drawing said! Yes,I was so disappointed when Donald Trump blamed you for inciting actions against your contest.He was wrong. But I truly believe Donald has had the scales fall from his eyes” because after Garland the American people stood up for your free speech rights .I truly think Trump recognizes when he has made a a mistake in his thinking and can change his mind. I pray that he will approach you with a heartfelt apology. Mea culpa,so to speak. People he admires supported you and I believe he learned from that. God bless you and God bless America.

    It is one thing to object to another person’s actions. He used his free speech, not to attempt to ban her free speech, but to challenge the wisdom and propriety if free speech. It is the marketplace of ideas.

    It is not the marketplace of ideas, when you use violence to attack free speech.

    Perhaps The Trumpster learned something from this, though. What goes around comes around.

  • Aleister Crowley

    One thing I think all of the people that frequent this truthful blog should never lose sight of is that these anti – Trump protestors must share the same if not worse views of World Jewry.
    The blacks in this movement all think Farrakhan/Wright/Sharpton/Jackson are civil rights leaders.
    The muslims that joined the protest… Well I guess it’s rather clear what they think of Jews.
    A moratorium on Muslim emigration is good thing for all Americans. But would I be wrong in assuming that it would contribute greatly to the safety of American Jews? That’s a good thing, Right?
    So perhaps Trump misspoke about Garland we all make mistakes. San Bernardino proved Pam was correct about these animals.
    Both Trump&Geller have a common cause which is bigger than either of their personal misgivings about each other. Hopefully many American Jews will see Cruz for the weakling he is. I’m sure it’s Heidi that calls the shots in his house.
    Both Trump&Geller take a Beating but keep on Ticking. Neither will ever be accused of being Low Energy because both of their Goals are bigger than them and they both know it.
    A long healthful life to both!

          • Aleister Crowley

            Cruz never got anything of worth to the American people passed.

          • Did you see any of his filibuster? Or any of his on-the-record Senate speeches where he stood-up to the Senate leader from his own PARTY? I NEVER thought I’d see anything like that in my life!!!! He is truly, genuinely the “outsider” in the most substantial of measures and while he was in the Senate!!

            We all remember when Trump tried to characterize that as “not being liked”, “hated”, and the rest. Right then, I knew Trump hadn’t a clue as to what Cruz did in the Senate. The reason I know this is that Cruz’s Senate work is exactly the reason Constitutional Conservatives know he can put the brakes on the destruction of the Constitution. He got “nothing done”? That’s really idiotic!!!

            Are you incapable of checking the list yourself?
            These are a matter of public record.
            Sounds like you’re not American. Are you Israeli? If so I can understand why you’re not informed on Cruz’s associates.
            Mercer’s Breitbart has been in the tank for Cruz from the beginning.
            Example: Shapiro & Fields.

          • No. The point is you–the one who posted the list and inane “100%” lines–garner low confidence when you–the one who didn’t provide any references–don’t provide a source.

            Please clarify whether the “Brietbart” you listed has anything to do with the now-insufferable brietbart.com. Thanks.

            What do you mean by “associate”? Do you even know what you’re typing?

            You do a lot of dodging when it comes to Cruz. Do you drive a Dodge also, a Durango perhaps or a minivan?
            The reason I asked if you were Israeli is because you’re not very well informed on Cruz. You don’t sound knowledgeable on the current American election cycle and if you’re a foreign national that is understandable but it’s no excuse for your rudeness&arrogance.
            It wouldn’t make any sense for me to loathe Jews since I am one.
            I’m not Frum and obviously neither are you. Are you paranoid?
            Regarding Robert Mercer’s ownership of Breitbart isn’t he a Cruz supporter/donor?
            Also I believe Robert Mercer is Jewish himself. So if you don’t like his handling of Breitbart wouldn’t that call into question your loathing of Jews?
            I’ve been very civil to you yet you just hurl invectives & ad homeins.

          • Aleister Crowley

            You’re boy Manchurian Candidate Cruz got schlonged last night. I guess siding with BLM protesters didn’t help him.
            TRUMP is actually MORE conservative than Ted Cruz, and here’s why…..It is not widely known yet, but Trump’s political mentor in the 1970s was none other than Roy Cohn, former legal counsel and right hand man to anti-communist activist Senator Joe McCarthy.

            Trump knows all about the communist infiltration of America, and has been working within the system for decades. He knows everyone that’s involved, and will throw open the curtain on all of them. This is the REAL reason the establishment and communist front groups like Black Lives Matter and Moveon.org are freaking out right now.

            Contrast this to Ted Cruz’s father being one of Fidel Castro’s communist revolutionaries before fleeing persecution from the anti-communist Batista government in 1959. Judging by Ted’s use of language of the Left and joining them in smearing Trump recently, I think it’s quite possible that Cruz is a communist sleeper, posing as a conservative to control the opposition, and waiting for the right time to spring into action when a true anti-communist, pro-American candidate runs for election (Trump).

            Link to article confirming Roy Cohn as Trump’s mentor:

            “Donald had already made his alliance with Roy Cohn, who would become his lawyer and mentor.” Vanity Fair Magazine, 1990- http://www.vanityfair.com/maga…

          • Are you serious about asking me to believe something about Trump from the ’70s or ’90s when he wants us to believe that things he has done and said 1, 5 and ten years ago pre-date his magical transformation into a present-day conservative?

            Add this to the list of questions you refuse to answer.

            I’ll consider that Cruz’s father fled persecution after he originally was a revolutionary as part of a not-so-magical transformation. Thanks for the tip.

          • Uh huh. Among your many inane offerings, the one about the putative, former revolutionary from Cuba is very informative–of your ignorance of the subject; but it should be an opportunity for others to gain something; therefore, I continue.

            Any thinking person who lived during the first half of the 20th Century and cared about the crisis of Western Civilization, was a revolutionary. What was equally important was that the West had no competitive solution to that crisis: none, actually. The so-called peace that ended the fighting of the “War to End All Wars” was only a pause until the next conflagration; and this was obvious to anyone who witnessed the state of Europe, particularly of Germany, after WWI ended. That there was only one solution to the crisis was true–for those with the proper conscience–up to the point they learned that Stalin “evolved” into the “wet” method of asserting Russia’s Collectivist State–most infamously known as the Great Purge.

            At this point, many American Communists could no longer abide the side of Communism and they returned to what they perceived as the “losing side”–that of the West. They did so prior to knowing who would prevail in WWII, and they did so after it was believed that the West would win in WWII. “Losing” doesn’t, obviously, refer to anything military; it refers to the dying West, which was diagnosed many decades prior and, most notably, by Nietzsche.

            What does it mean if someone was for the Cuban revolution before he was against it? Could it mean that he disliked the feeling of swallowing his bloody teeth after they have been punched from his skull?
