Aug. 15, 2019.Pamela Geller (author and political activist) was scheduled to speak to the New York Young Republicans Club, hosted by the historic New York Women’s Republican Club in Manhattan.
Unfortunately, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in accordance with Islamic Law, pressured the popular ticket-seller, Eventbrite, through threats and intimidation to blacklist Geller. No reservations for any Pamela Geller event would be taken – EVER – at Eventbrite. Pamela Geller, this free speech crusader, was now blacklisted at Eventbrite for LIFE.
However, even though CAIR managed to falsely accuse and convince the gullible that Geller was guilty of hate-speech, they were unable to have her talk cancelled. Despite terror-linked CAIR’s best efforts to defame Ms. Geller, freedom prevailed. The black list was an EPIC FAIL!
She’s HERE. She’s BACK. She NEVER LEFT! Watch the video of Ms. Geller’s speech (preceded by two short intros)
.Video of Pamela Geller’s Q and A. After the speech, there was a energetic Q and A. Even though the audio of some of the questions might not be clear, due to location of the mic, the answers from Geller are superbly loud and clear!
Referring to Geller’s awesome presentation, “One of the best defenses of free speech I’ve seen in a long time.” [Gerard Perry]
A reader’s comment: “Hopefully many other people will also come to understand that the “Religion of Peace” in reality is a deadly, bloodthirsty cult bent on global domination.
I would characterize this talk more as a discussion of freedom of speech than one about Islam. Islam is only mentioned because it is the most powerful- and violent- suppressor of freedom of speech in the world today.
The realized Muslim dream of an all-Islamic world would be Humanity’s worst nightmare!” [Geller Report]
Washington Square, December 7, 2017. 5 pm. On this coldish December night, Sharia-Loving Linda Sarsour led a rally against the Muslim Ban, Tax Scam and to fight for DREAM Act, with her oft repeated phrase: she is OUTRAGED.
Whose rage? The Port Authority Bomber? 4 days later, he speaks to President Trump of rage, “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE.”
Or Linda Sarsour’s OUTRAGE. December 7th, A Day that should Live in Infamy goes unmentioned as Sarsour rails on, “Outraged.’ She has so much rage in her body.
Linda shills for Sharia (and Islam) with veiled threats, deflecting scrutiny by saying we should not let FEAR lead us. (SHE is PEACE) “Islam is Good. Capitalism BAD and RAGE was the color of the day.”
BUT, from those who have seen the future under Sharia-Islam, we have been warned. The threats are real. America, we should be VERY afraid.
A 9 minute video of Sarsour preaching her party line to recruit the naive and inspire her complicit followers, with transcribed excerpts of Sarsour’s remarks.
A brief on-camera interview, over heard:
“Message for Trump administration, ‘We’re gonna stay organized. We’re gonna fight back … I believe in my generation. We’re not gonna sit back.‘ (In 2018 we’ll take out any politician. We’re gonna fight back.)”
Excerpts from her full ‘ya’ll’ speech:
“My body is full of rage. I have so much rage in my body. I hope you are all just as outraged as I am […] I am ashamed. As an American […]…the GOP tax-scam, it’s not a Bill it’s a SCAM
(re D.C. protest) Sisters and Brothers … arresting people with disabilities, with terminal diseases. We should be ashamed in this country that there could people that could die on our watch just because they don’t have access to health care.
We have an administration putting forth a WHITE SUPREMACIST agenda on OUR watch. Be outraged, my sisters and brothers.
This week (re the Supreme Court) I don’t care what religion you are, y’all gotta pray for RUTH. Ruth’s gotta be alive for a really long time (still in her good ol’ boy accent)
(refers to) BANNED people from six Muslim majority countries. (refers to 1939 FDR – turning away ship with European refugee Jews) Dark Days in the United States of America.
Today, in Yemen, Saudi-led U.S. supported WAR, people (are) crippled by a war. Looking for safety. security. to re-unite with their families.
Outrageous, Sisters and Brothers. We cannot be the generation that takes our country back 50 years.
Sisters and Brothers, FEAR is a choice.They are using fear-politics to divide us. We will NOT choose fear. We will choose solidarity, and unity, and resistance to this WHITE Supremacist administration. [5:00]
They are trying to exhaust us, this Fascist administration; to distract us from what they are really doing; the political corruption; the ill-informed decisions, the nepotism. But, we are NOT distracted. We know exactly what is going on.
We are people that are compassionate, that have open-hearts and minds. We love ALL people. When we say justice, we say “justice for ALL people”. [7:00]
You are hope. We are hope. NYC is HOPE.
I am perpetually outraged every morning. I will continue to be outraged until every single human being that lives in our country is treated with dignity and respect….and we have a government who aligns with our value system and our principles of democracy and freedom and liberation and justice for all; ALL people. [8:00]
Dissent is the highest form of patriotism and a true patriot who loves their country will not settle for a White Supremacist in the White House; for a sexual predator in the White House; for anti-Semites in the White House or Islamophobes in the White House; Xenophobes in the White House.
We, as Americans, will not settle and we will fight until we have a administration that reflects our values and our TRUE principles. [9:00] END video
What a piece of work. Sarsour jumps back and forth from her Brooklyn accent to her ‘good ol boy- y’alls. (Makes me think of the Hilda-beast and her “you know what I’m talkin’ about'” charade.) Pathetic fools, they LOVE Sarsour like they LOVED Hillary.

Addendum: December 11, 2017 follow up on the latest Muslim Jihadi suicide bomber OUTRAGE ; allowed to live in Manhattan, un-vetted; admitted through chain-migration .
“… the NYPD faces a brutal challenge in aiming to prevent all terrorist attacks.
Which is why it’s so mystifying that the City Council is moving ahead to pass the Right to Know Act, which would dangerously discourage cops’ ability to perform proactive policing.
A vote is set for next week on this legislation, which is designed to get cops to ignore potential crimes and suspicious behavior for fear of civilian complaints.
But New Yorkers don’t want a police department that merely arrives at the scene of a tragedy to pick up the pieces. They want attacks like Monday’s prevented.
That means not handcuffing the NYPD’s ability to remain constantly.” [NY Post]
“A would-be Muslim suicide bomber’s attempt to kill morning rush hour commuters in Manhattan yesterday is throwing much-needed light on our disastrous “chain migration” immigration system that admits foreigners based merely on family connections.
In New York, thanks to people like de Blasio, it is now more important to avoid making Muslims uncomfortable than to actually root out terrorist plots that lead to the deaths of his constituents.[Front page Mag]
This is the Muslim way. The family is not outraged that their devout son wanted to murder as many innocent human beings as possible in the cause of Allah in the country that welcomed him and his whole family. The devout family is outraged at the NYPD for trying to save lives.
The jihad family is being represented by the terror group CAIR, of course. Just like the complicit San Bernardino mass murdering family. And the enemedia works hard to spit and shine their shoes. Let the litigation jihad begin.” [Pamela Geller]
“One of the attorneys representing the Muslim immigrant family of Akayed Ullah, the suspect arrested in the terror bombing of New York City’s subway system, has issued a scathing criticism of the police in their handling of the investigation — because they apparently worked too quickly to identify the accused. As always, CAIR serves as the apologist for the jihad world.” [Pamela Geller]
“The accused Port Authority bomber posted a taunting message to President Trump in the hours before the attack, authorities said Tuesday.
“Trump you failed to protect your nation,” Akayed Ullah, 27, wrote on Facebook early Monday, according to the federal complaint.
Investigators scouring Ullah’s Brooklyn home turned up a passport in his name with multiple handwritten notes, including “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE … ” [NY Daily News]
June 1, 2017. 3 pm-5 pm. Harlem NYC. Outside the famed Apollo Theatre.
Inside, the CUNY graduation ceremony will begin at 5 pm. Meanwhile, there was much activity outside as the attendees gathered, waiting to go in.
Ignoring the many #NoToSarsour protests, Linda Sasour’s CUNY keynote address was happening – anyway-
So two dedicated protestors walked back and forth in front of the Apollo; engaging the passersby and informing them why an anti-Semite, Hamas-supporting, sharia-loving woman, Linda Sarsour, should NOT be the keynote role-model for these (or any) grads.
For approx 45 minutes it was just two patriots engaging passersby with the facts regarding their protest and they spoke to many supportive passersby. Who would have ‘thunk’ it. In Harlem.
There were encouraging responses, particularly from men of colour – 20-4o years of age. Some had actually been at the AFDI #NoToSarsour protest the previous Thursday.
One fellow joined the two #NoToSarsour protestors for what seemed to be his lunch break as he sat, sign-in-hand and ate his lunch in front of the attendees.
Part 1 video. A brief look at the two protestors outside the Apollo
After a firestorm of protests leading up to June 1, CUNY held firm, claiming to support all types of speakers, even controversial ones; a disingenuous defense for choosing Sarsour and ignoring the FACTS about why she was a poor choice.
But, CUNY has an agenda: to make SHARIA law acceptable to the masses. Therefore Linda Sarsour, self-proclaimed sharia-loving “feminist” MUST remain their keynote speaker.
Sadly, those graduating were pawns in the agitprop game of the leftists-in-charge, who snarkily took over the sidewalk and lobbied the police to remove the two CUNY protestors. The feminazi lesbian brigade was particularly confrontational with the female protestor.
The major domo lesbian lobbied the police “white shirts”, oh-so-sweetly, getting NYPD to briefly do her bidding. “Make those two racist protestors go far, far away… pretty please?”
The police actually attempted to keep the two protestors AWAY (out of sight) from the domineering leftists who were “front and center” by the line of attendees.
“No standing. anywhere. Only walking. No TALKING to passersby.” Then it was, “You can’t WALK back and forth in front of the crowd.”
Of course, the rules were re-written to protect-the-left, but with quiet resistance the two Sarsour protestors politely persevered, continuing to walk-the-gauntlet of leftists and grad attendees: Unscathed.
NONE of these attempts at new rules were applied to the sidewalk-glut created by the banner-brigade peace grandmas.
They stopped. talked. “fumbled” with their banner. handed out flowers.
They stood in the center of the sidewalk and sat on little chairs with their signs demanding an end to Islamophobia and police violence.
The NYPD handled them well ….
Nicely. politely and with a respect they didn’t deserve.
… in spite of their rudely offensive signs …
Finally, some of the leftist protestors went inside a pen where their signs and banners were very visible for the grad attendees.
As long as those two pesky anti-Sarsour protestors were kept FAR AWAY the lefties were content, peace flowers-in hand, to freely walk, talk and engage the passersby.
Honoring their “creed”: NO competition-of-thought allowed, kept their tigers-at-bay.
Flickr Slide show of both sides outside the Apollo
The Lefties – all types – included the Raging Grandmas (for Peace) – one waved her Freedom Socialist rag of a “news paper” in my face while calling ME a Nazi.
Also, joining them were the do-gooder, self-hating “Jews for Islam” aka Jewish Voice For Peace and the ridiculous feminazis.
A very familiar face was “Rabbi” Michael Feinberg – passing out peace flowers. Feinberg is a dedicated hard-core UNION leftist who gives no quarter to any position that threatens his do gooder-ism. There is no illegal sanctuary, anti-police, pro-Islam cause that he and his comrades-in-arms do not support.
They live to protest all things good and decent, under the guise of decency.
5 pm – All were inside. CUNY prevailed. The ceremony was on course. Sarsour gave her keynote speech with Sharia Law unsullied. I read later that Sarsour’s speech was even LIVE-streamed. (wow)
Hope the attendees who told us they planned on standing and turning their backs on her were successful. BUT, OF COURSE, WE WILL NEVER KNOW cause the MSM will NEVER let that be the story-of-record.
Still, two stalwart protestors proved again that, even in small numbers, you CAN make a difference. For a couple of hours they made a crack in the left’s black-out on the TRUTH.
As for the report on the keynote address, I found some research links that revealed Sarsour was color co-ordinated with everyone, including the lights – the venue – a lovely rich blue dominated the scene.

And then, lest we forget it was Ramadan, Sarsour went back to midtown, outside Trump Tower to PRAY IFTAR – ON Fifth Avenue.
see IFTAR twitter reporta
Why bother with a mosque when you can kneel and crying to ALLAH on the streets of Manhattan. And the Leftie Jews that run Manhattan were there SUPPORTING (and protecting) this foolishness.
Next up. March Against Sharia, June 10. The controversy never ends.
[Where designated, pictures and videos property of Pamela Hall]
An addendum – Perhaps this was a FEMINIST lead support group for Sarsour since it was comprised of the feminazis, peace-grandmas and lesbians. Helping me come to this perspective was one of their photographers, Joan L Roth. She seems to be a part of their group at large.
She writes: “I went to Kiev in 1991 because it was the 50th anniversary of Babi Yar. For a long time, Jews weren’t even allowed to visit the site. This was the first time that the government allowed an official memorial service.
Thousands of Jews, a huge sea of people carrying candles and flowers, all walked from the train station to Babi Yar—the same route as half a century ago. There was a blown-up photo at the site, of naked women. It never occurred to me that you had to take your clothes off to be shot. I’ve never been able to get that photo out of my mind.
Everyone there had a mother, a father, a grandparent or some relative who was murdered at Babi Yar. This woman [center of photo] (5) was a survivor, one of only four or five. She was thrown into the canyon as a child, and somehow crawled out. She crawled to the house of non-Jews she knew. Here she poses with these non-Jews, brother and sister; she was brought up with them. The three of them are together a lot. They were moved that I thought it was important to photograph them—so they’re crying. Still in pain after all these years.
After I visited Babi Yar, I went to synagogue in Kiev. That’s where I started this kind of prayer I say—to my grandfather, to God—thanking my grandfather for having had the courage to leave Russia. My aunt used to tell me how beautiful Kiev was, the cherry blossoms in spring. She used to say, “If I had stayed, it would have been so easy for me to become a doctor,” and I used to think, “What are you talking about, you’d be dead.”
So, on this day, HOW can Sharia Law not be a source of emotional and intellectual conflict for any feminist’s sensibilities? ’tis a puzzlement.
Protest CUNY Keynote Speake, Pro-Terror anti-Semite : Linda Sarsour Protest terror and hate at CUNY– this will not stand.(Pamela Geller)
“The AFDI demo against CUNY’s obscene invitation to pro-terror Jew-hater Linda Sarsour to give their commencement address was a smashing success! With over a thousand people who came out in a downpour of pelting rain on East 42nd Street outside CUNY’s headquarters on to oppose the mainstreaming of evil. It was an amazing event, a turning point, despite Mayor de Blasio’s nefarious attempts to undermine and destroy the rally.” [Pamela Geller]
The ruse …. as long as passersby can move through the sidewalk …. passing their screaming gauntlet, the Soc/Commie/Lefties claim the right to STAND there, SCREAMING. Which is contrary to what we have been told in the past by the NYPD: keep moving, not standing, has been the supposed rule of law – til now.
Moving – no standing – but the lefties bully the system (always) to get their way. So rules change as they need them to change. An electic group of 20-something patriots marched back and forth in front of the Lefties, No standing around for them. [Foot Note – finally have a name for the eccentric Libertarian protestors – PROUD BOYS, a creation of Gavin McInnes]
Saw Gavin McInnes (the Proud Boy mentor) enter the stage enclosure from the crowd behind me. Wondered if he was speaking (he wasn’t listed). He was not. Just hung out at the edge of the stage. Police didn’t like him offering a can of Pepsi to the protesting morons.
[my 2 screen shots of McInnes (with goatee) arriving and watching from side of the stage]
As for the abuses heaped upon The AFDI Speakers- by the obnoxious Left – I heard that the reason we were surrounded and drowned out by the Leftists was that the police were sued by the Commies – to be allowed to stand wherever they liked. (no idea if this is correct)
Brief video of the crowd and the noise harassment. Noni Darwish was bravely speaking over the din.
Another source reported that when the police moved the Lefties away from the stage, the Commies started making phone calls. Presuming these calls went to someone in “Red Bill’s” office, since they were allowed, post-haste, and en masse a return to the staging area where they continued to relentlessly harass the speakers. (I understand the officers expressed frustration at this favoritism).
Which is why you will hear the unabated harassment heaped at these brave and dedicated speakers while they gave important and honorable speeches. I have posted videos of most of the speakers.
Pamela Geller’s opening remarks on why Linda Sarsour should not be the Key Note Speaker. “CUNY COULD have done BETTER”
Milo Yiannopoulos was the final keynote speaker
Noni Darwish gave an impassioned speech on the dangers of Sharia. She lived it and left Islam ( which infuriates the Left) so they were particularly RUDE to her
David Wood (excerpted) is a respected scholar on Islam and Sharia spoke of the dangers of leave Islam – the sharia fatwas- and the dangers for everyone to live – forced – under sharia.
John Guandolo – Ex FBI agent addressed the lies we in the so called (enlightened) West are taught about Islam and Sharia. And what we can do about those lies.
CUNY has invited a pro-terror, pro-sharia anti-semite to give the keynote commencement address. And they will not reconsider. Universities have dis-invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Ann Coulter, Milo, legions of conservative thinkers and voices in defense of freedom, but a vicious, pro-sharia, Jew-hater they will defend to the death and that is it right there. They fear jihad. They fear Islamic supremacists. They know no harm with come to them if they smear, defame, libel or cancel us. They know we don’t destroy, maim, behead like Sarsour supporters and their violent running dogs on the left.
On June 1, Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour will be giving the graduate commencement speech at the City University of New York. While no one who believes in freedom of speech would object to Linda’s right to speak at a university, a graduate commencement address is a completely different story. The graduate commencement speaker is chosen by the university for the students’ final “send off.” Couldn’t CUNY find someone besides a Sharia advocate to speak at a celebration for students and their families?
Some people are responding by insisting that Linda Sarsour should be allowed to speak on college campuses. It seems they’ve missed the point entirely. No one is saying that Linda shouldn’t be allowed to speak at CUNY. (Robert even challenges her to a debate.) The protest is about Linda being the COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER for the graduation. The commencement speaker is the university’s choice for who gives the final “send off” for the graduates. CUNY chose a Sharia proponent for the final send off. That’s what’s being protested. CUNY is trying to ram Sharia down students’ and parents’ throats.
My next report- June 1st, 2017. Many fine patriots intend to protest outside the the Apollo Theatre where the grads will assemble inside. Wonder if the patriots will be allowed ANYWHERE NEAR the entrance. To be continued….

Part 2. March 8, 2017. Noon. 59th and Fifth avenue. Part 1 link >>here>> The crowd was jammed around the stage, from all sides – no elbow room, sight-lines poor. A Day Without a Woman Strike. Obscenely popular.
Amidst a sea of Red and PINK, a lot of foolish women worshiping at the altar of sharia loving feminazis like Linda Sarsour. SAD. Cameras on all sides struggling to get a shot of Sarsour, whose pursuit of public office, Brooklyn Borough President or even Mayor NYC, looks more and more probable. They worship her. The Anti-Trump Women’s Movement Teams Up With Islamist Terrorist ,Linda Sarsour, Islamist apologist and activist, a supporter of shariah law. Catching her speech, recording it, was high on my bucket list. Sarsour always needs to be heard not just seen.
I had a difficult time filming Sarsour, photographers crowded so tightly at the front of the stage but what matters … you hear every bloody word.
The gist is, Republicans – Bad. Some men – always bad, like melanin-challenged Repubs, which makes, of course, America Bad. After a couple of other speakers, I moved on. Forgetting there was a ‘march’ on the books. I focused on the crowd. By now it had swelled from 59th to 58th and across the avenue into Grand Army Plaza.
I wound up missing phase two: THE MARCH. Around 1:30 the sharia compliant feminazis marched arm-in-arm to Trump International Tower. Blocking the streets, were Sarsour and approximately 12 of her minions [see Womens March Team Bios ]
They staged an arrest – see womens’ march twitter feed coming from INSIDE the paddy wagon. Hard times? Really? I think not.
(LINKS below of more arrest coverage)
Back to the speakers portion of the protest/rally. I heard not a critical word from Sarsour or her comrade sisters-in-arms ( like Faiza Ali who spoke as well) about the horrors of Sharia Law.
No one mentioned the INTERNATIONAl, GLOBAL abuses in ISLAMIC countries; heaped on women, children, homosexuals (lesbians) trans- genders
PLAYLIST 3 short VIDEOS
Excerpted transcription from one video:
Hey, New York, whats-up? […. ] I stand before you as a girl from Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY. (cheers) […] Trump does not have respect for women but he also doesn’t know the POWER of women. Despite ATTEMPTS by Trump and Republicans to diminish women, we know our value and we know that America does not function without us. (cheers) We know that this GLOBE doesn’t function without us.
Two years ago when I visited Palestine, I had a woman tell me that women will be the leaders of the revolution because we’ve (??) half the population and we ARE half the population. (cheers)
Today I strike for every woman, who like me, couldn’t pull together enough money to afford college and had to work a 9 to 5 job and a retail job. Or went in to massive debt because they had to pay to go to college.
I strike for every incarcerated (women) out there, because women are the fastest growing population behind bars and “enough is enough”.
I strike for every woman and every family torn apart by deportation. And for every (women) [??] that we are less than men.
I strike for trans-women who keep on being murdered on our streets and I. Have. Said. ENOUGH! There is a massive resistance movement that is growing. We are a part of it. But, we need to put our bodies on [??]
We need to stand, to stand-up for black women. We need to stand-up for Palestinian women. We need to stand-up for Southeast Asian women. We need to stand for ALL women. (CHEERS) Because equal pay is not just equal pay for white women (I love ya’ll) But, equal pay should be equal pay for ALL of us. And we should not go to sleep knowing that we can go home and [??]
So I leave you with this song. [Sarsour joins singing] “Ain’t gonna let know body turn us around. Turn us around. Turn us around. Ain’t gonna let nobody turn us around. We gonna keep on a-walkin’, keep on ta-alkin’, marchin’ on to Freedom Land.” Thank you, New York.
Nope. It’s all about this country. America: Bad. America, where Individualism Rules. (for now) Even obscenity is OKAY. (for now)America, where these privileged educated women can rant, without FEAR, about their imagined enemies. Spewing their fantastical version of abuse, while ignoring the real enemy of women, children AND men- of the free world: Islamic Global Terror . The CRICKETS were very LOUD
IF ONLY- they understood and cherished the country they live in. Where their white privileged daughters will have the same GOOD life as their privileged mothers. (As long as there is No Sharia Law allowed here)
The next Generation will suffer? WHY?

I begin with a flashback. 2011 . NY Law School held a two day Sharia LawfareSymposium.
This Sharia LawfareSymposium was a two day commercial for Islam, as they pushed their bridge building narrative and deftly denied any perceived threat from Sharia Law.
Clearly NY Law School, a school where American lawyers are taught U.S. Law, was supportive of the movement to make U.S. Law Sharia Compliant. What else could they be thinking? Since they perceived no threat. The links that follow are to the 2011 symposium.
Now, four years later.2015. How goes it on the Western Front?
Is the West any more informed when it comes to the threat of Sharia Law? Are we any wiser? Perhaps some, but not enough. Particularly when we observe our government’s PC side-stepping when it comes to the Islamic Global threat.
Recently we are being offered more knowledge to fight this wall of disinformation. Now (in 2015) there is a new book that should be REQUIRED reading by government-types as well as the faculty and students at NY Law School, “Offensive and Defensive LAWFARE”, a new monograph that illuminates the civilization jihadists’ lawfare against America – and how it can be fought.
In Offensive and Defensive Lawfare: Fighting Civilization Jihad in America’s Courts, David Yerushalmi, Esq., Director of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) and General Counsel for the Center for Security Policy, and AFLC co-founder Robert J. Muise, Esq. describe the use by our Islamic supremacist enemies of U.S. jurisprudence to compel submission to the doctrine they call shariah. As with so many other facets of the Muslim Brotherhood’s stealthy, pre-violent jihad against this country, most of us are unaware that such lawfare is taking place, let alone with such deleterious effects.
Even more importantly, Messrs. Yerushalmi and Muise lay out their recommendations for an offensive strategy to defend the U.S. Constitution and the rights it guarantees our countrymen and women from any further encroachment by Islamic law. In stark contrast to the longstanding use of such techniques to intimidate or suppress freedom-loving peoples, offensive lawfare against the Brotherhood and its ilk is a relatively nascent area of the law, in which the authors are true pioneers and formidable innovators.
Knowledge Can be a Dangerous Thing— For ISLAM and Sharia Law. They Fear our Enlightenment.
The topic of the evening: “The First Amendment and Social Criticism”.
The First Amendment. Free Speech. Listening to what you might find offensive, but respecting the free speech rights of others to offend. However, Free Speech was trampled by the Brooklyn College Zoo, while Brooklyn College Security and Faculty stood by – on the sidelines. Immobile. Frozen. Neutered.
This is what Sharia Law Looks Like.
To begin. April 22. 2015. Brooklyn College. When I arrived, around 6 PM, there was a fairly large crowd standing outside in a light rain. It seemed to be students mostly. I figured they would start entering within about a half hour so I was escorted upstairs by the faculty sponsor,Professor Seidemann, to the “penthouse”, where I could set up my camera gear before the students took their seats. What I saw, as I entered, was a bare room (hardly a “penthouse”) with approx 200 (room capacity) folding chairs at-the-ready for the audience. But, for now, only Security and a few faculty-types were standing around; waiting.
Contrary to a snarky crack made by a young woman, that can be heard in the Q and A video, regarding preferential seating (39:37 – 40:03) The only privileged early-seating that was witnessed by myself and the faculty sponsor, was a First Wave of early seating by quite a few Muslim students (male and female). The next wave of seating was about 10-15 minutes later and was also, mostly, Muslim students …. ALL of whom headed to the front of the room, filling the seats front to back. “Yes, Virginia” the treatment of some as being better than others (the Muslim students getting early seating) did NOT go unnoticed, despite your faux complaint.
While the waves of Muslim Students got settled, this fellow in the white shirt below, walked row by row, clearly giving the male students in particular instructions of some sort.
It became apparent as soon as Ms. Geller mentioned hijabs (buzz-words?) that the male Muslim students were to get up and walk out at appointed times. (“potty-breaks?”)
Since the “instructor” sat down front with his ear piece and ALL of the cell phones were being held close to their chests throughout her speech, it was clear how easily he was instructing and co-ordinating the intended visual chaos.
Different groups of males through out her speech walked out and then back in, back and forth, attempting to disrupt her speech. It did NOT work.
Continuing with the intros that preceded Ms. Geller’s Speech.
At about 7:20, once late-comers were accommodated, the intros began with Brooklyn College V.P., Joseph Giovannelli, who gave a very specific breakdown of how the students (and guests) were expected to behave and what behaviors would be grounds for removal from the event.
ALL of these pointless instructions were IGNORED by the Muslim students, as well as the Security Officers, once Ms. Geller began to speak.The bedlam during the Q and A grew to a deafening DIN where NO one could be heard and was tolerated (ignored?) by Mr. Giovannelli AND the BC Security.
On camera (49:10 – to 49:23) Giovannelli can be seen looking bewildered while approaching a Security Officer.
Both just stared back at the raging crowd, incapable of putting any rules of decorum into action while these Muslim students screamed and yelled at the Armenian woman who had survived a genocide was TRYING to ask a question.
Brooklyn College SJP, ISO, & supporters filled the room for a talk by Pamela Geller. We made it known that her hate, bigotry, and flat out bullshit is not welcome here. This video was taken at the end of her lecture. Most of the crowd was chanting “Free Palestine” and “End the occupation now”.You can see the woman in the green shirt shouting at students to “go home”.This is the idiocy sanctioned by Pamela Geller. Your faith or ethnicity does not dictate home.”
(The same woman in green responds in my Q and A video to all their obnoxious screaming with, “You don’t act like American citizens.”
The COMMENTS that followed the Instagram video:
carmeister You guys seriously shouting down an old woman? Here I thought Islam was better than that. Judea was renamed Palestine by Rome by the way.
lisa.gagliardo Someone who says “go back home” deserves to be shut down and so does Pamela with her hate filled speech. Palestine has been occupied for 67 years and Israel is a war criminal by the way. @carmeister
firstname.lastname@example.org so no respect for old women. Gotcha. I just heard Ms. Geller’s talk on YouTube and didn’t hear hate speech coming from her. She did however point out many horrible thing done by Muslims. Like a father killing his daughter for not wearing a hijab etc. is that the true face of Islam? I think you are mistaken about Palestine.
lisa.gagliardo You must not be familiar with the adds that she runs. She puts things like “Jew hatred is in the Quran” and “Defeat the savage, support Israel”. That’s hate speech. Obviously that’s not any face Islam has. A verse in the Quran says “killing one innocent person is as if you have killed all humanity”. No, I’m not mistaken. @carmeister
lisa.gagliardo Prophet Muhammad said “The best among you is one who is best to his family”. Does it sound like killing family members is the true face of Islam to you?
lisa.gagliardo@carmeister I hope your perspective changes. As a non-Muslim I’m thankful I had family members who said no religion is hateful, violent, or destructive at a young age or else the media would have me thinking like you.
ladamidesignsTerrible on so many levels. Pamela Geller needs to go home…

Video Part 2 – Pamela Geller speech and Q and A
The Muslim Students were itching for a fight. Manipulating the crowd vociferously. It is a credit to the non-Muslims in the audience that confrontations were avoided.
The hoots, yells, screams roared forth from the Muslim students with every derisive crack that posed as a question. One example in the Q and A video at 39:01 to 39:34, is when the hippy, finger-clicking chick claimed to be a Roman Catholic and derided Geller for speaking in favor of Free Speech. LOTS of noise followed.
The Muslim Students jeered at Geller for supporting Free Speech. They support shutting down Free Speech. Controlling our media. Our schools. Our police.
THIS is what Sharia Law Looks Like.
The Muslim Students think they have “won” the “intellectual” war. Taking selfies and screaming: ” Don’t Come Back”, “Free Free Palestine”, “End the Occupation Now” “Free, Free Gaza” and the ever pithy, “The People United Will Never Be Defeated”.
They have won NOTHING(they just don’t know it yet)
