Pamela Geller sums it up:
The war against free speech is raging all over the West. Wilders is still on trial. Juan Williams was fired. There is a 10-million-dollar lawsuit against me. And in Austria, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, who spoke at our FDI event at CPAC in February 2010, is also facing trial for telling the truth. Get the details here -- and stand with Elisabeth and all freedom fighters.
That's right, a 10 million dollar lawsuit against Pamela Geller -- a crude and obvious attempt to silence one of the nation's most prominent and effective voices against Islamic supremacism today. Pamela has details and background here, including this from AP:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A blogger championing the case of a Muslim-to-Christian convert from Ohio says allegedly defamatory comments she's being sued over were protected free speech.
Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller also says many of the postings singled out in a federal lawsuit could fall into the realm of hyperbole and not defamation.
Geller says in a federal court filing Tuesday that she is a journalist writing about a matter of public interest and is protected by the First Amendment.
Pamela comments: "Tarazi's lawsuit is an embarrassment to the legal profession. Apart from being factually wrong, his emails are riddled with spelling errors. He exhibits little knowledge of procedure and less of rule of law. One has to wonder how these incompetents pass the bar."
