…..but the Tea Partiers prevailed! (Part I)
Last week an astounding thing happened in Texas. Pamela Geller, a blogger (Atlas Shrugs) and leader in the American anti-jihad movement, was scheduled to speak to the Sugar Land Texas Tea Party at a Hyatt Hotel. A few Muslim extremists called the Hyatt and scared the management into canceling the event. The Tea Party leaders, refusing to be silenced reacted quickly, found an alternative venue and went on with Geller’s educational talk.
By the way, Pamela Geller, a New Yorker, is one of the leaders against the Ground Zero Mosque and you may have seen her discuss the mosque on Fox News.
Here is the story in her own words at World Net Daily (emphasis mine) last week:
Free speech, the cornerstone of our constitutional republic, is in serious jeopardy. Under the Shariah, criticism of Islam is blasphemy (punishable by death in Muslims countries living under the Shariah). This is the death of free speech in the continuing Islamization of America, as I saw vividly Tuesday night when I spoke in Houston, Texas. But free people and free speech ultimately prevailed, despite the best efforts of Islamic supremacists to crush them. Hyatt’s cancellation of a tea-party event at which I was to speak, and the reaction of freedom lovers to it, best illustrates why I wrote my book “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance”: to show what Islamic supremacists are doing in America today, and how we must fight back.
I was scheduled to speak Tuesday evening for the Sugar Land Tea Party at the Hyatt Place Houston/Sugar Land. But Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) thugs intimidated the hotel where the event was scheduled to take place into canceling the event altogether. Giving Tea Party organizers little time to find a new venue, the Hyatt Place in Sugar Land caved to Islamic pressure and agreed to enforce the blasphemy law under the Shariah.
The cowards and dhimmis at Hyatt Place Houston/Sugar Land received a couple of threatening calls, and they surrendered to Islamic supremacists without even firing a shot. Hyatt spokesman Jamie Zimmerman said: “Hyatt Place Houston/Sugar Land respects the various opinions expressed by our guests and visitors. In this particular situation, the changing security needs required for the safety of our guests and others on the hotel property and to avoid business disruption prompted us to ask the organizers to move it to an alternate location. We are pleased that the organizers were able to identify a venue better equipped to provide services to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone involved with the event.” [Incredible! The Hyatt admits here that having Muslims angry is a security issue—ed]
Ahmadinejad stays at a Hyatt in New York and the hotel isn’t concerned!
But the Hyatt doesn’t really respect “various opinions” at all. Mind you, where does Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stay and entertain his murderous comrades when he comes to New York? The Hyatt. And remember also that billionaire Penny Pritzker owns the Hyatt, and was also the national finance chair for Barack Obama when he ran for president in 2008.
Pamela packed the house!
The quisling cowards at the Hyatt Place Sugar Land caved to intimidation, but that didn’t stop freedom lovers from coming to hear me speak. The event was held at the Sugar Land Community Center, and the house was packed. Hundreds came out to hear what the Shariah forbids: the truth. It was an amazing evening. I was struck by the number of apostates (former Muslims) in the house. Gd bless Texas!
A Republican Muslim was the leader of the Islamist troublemakers!
Still, there was a small group of anti-Geller Islamic supremacist protesters outside the venue. And who was leading them? Farha Ahmed, the lawyer for chemical weapons jihadist Lady al-Qaida. Ahmed is trying to infiltrate the Republican Party by running for office. She ran for Sugar Land City Council District 4 but was defeated, thanks to great Americans who alerted Texans to the subversive politician in their midst.
Gee, I wonder whose idea that was—an Islamist running as a Republican? Grover Norquist maybe? Guess they succeeded in stopping Ahmed in Texas, but, in Virginia, Republicans (including the Governor!) are moving David Ramadan right along in the Republican Party power structure.
There is more, read Geller’s whole piece at World Net Daily.
Endnote: This Texas incident to silence free speech is not an isolated one. In 2009 I attended an educational conference on Islam in Nashville that had to move to a new venue with only a few days notice when that hotel—Loew’s Vanderbilt—caved to pressure from Islamic supremacists in Tennessee.
