First a memory jogger about who exactly Pamela Geller is. We posted this previously, but it’s time for a summer rerun:
Here’s one more for good measure:
Now a quick recap of what Geller has been up to:
A conservative activist and the organizations she leads have paid several thousand dollars for the ads to run on at least 30 city buses for a month. The ads point to a website called RefugefromIslam.com, which offers information to those wishing to leave Islam, but some Muslims are calling the ads a smoke screen for an anti-Muslim agenda.
Pamela Geller, who leads an organization called Stop Islamization of America, said the ads were meant to help provide resources for Muslims who are fearful of leaving the faith.
“It’s not offensive to Muslims, it’s religious freedom,” she said. “It’s not targeted at practicing Muslims. It doesn’t say ‘leave,’ it says ‘leaving’ with a question mark.”
As in, hey Pam, when will you be leaving?
Much more about the legalities here.
Now it’s time to hear from Pouty Pammy:
The little money that Atlas generates (I have no large donors) is about to be cut off. Apparently the jihad is hard at work trying to kill free speech (and the bus ads and the 9111 no mosque movement) from making its way to those in pursuit of truth. Paypal contributions helps pays for bus ads, rallies, live coverage (everything) and I so much as said so when asked repeatedly by the press who paid for the bus ads. Readers do and did.
Paypal is calling Atlas a “hate” site and will close my account if I do not remove the paypal option from my website. Accurate reporting and news is hate.
Truth is the new hate speech:
Please email or call paypal and let them know Atlas Shrugs is a news site and political blog. I am not responsible for the bad news in the world. I just report.
Great, another lawsuit. Want to make a contribution to my fight?
Mail a check to Pamela Geller, PO Box 121, 1040 1st Avenue, NY NY 10022. Until I beat those pathetic Paypal pussies. Unbelievable. [...]
[T]he global jihad, choking on petrol dollars, is trying to shut down my little spigot. [...]
Oh, the irony. Atlas reader Jon pints out that the inciters to violence and Jewish genocide, Revolution Muslim, has a paypal button. Got that?http://www.revolutionmuslim.com/
What could those pussies be thinking? Unbelievable.
