Yet another pseudo-journalist propagandist gets it wrong, perhaps willfully. Pamela Geller and I are organizing a rally against the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero on September 11. Details here. Speakers will include family members of 9/11 victims, Ambassador John Bolton, Dutch freedom fighter Geert Wilders (LIVE!), journalist Andrew Breitbart (either live or via video stream), NY Senate candidate Gary Bernsten, war hero and NC Congressional candidate Ilario Pantano, radio host Steve Malzberg, Michael Grimm, a candidate for Congress from New York’s 13th district and a 9/11 first responder, a spokesman for the ACLJ, and others. For ride and caravan information, see here.
Preparations are in full swing for that, but earlier this evening the hard-Left pseudo-journalist Max Blumenthal got confused, or decided to confuse the issue, and sent out this tweet:
MaxBlumenthal: Pam Geller’s pogromists harass, nearly assault black man mistaken
as Muslim@Ground Zero rally. http://bit.ly/aN5Tkm
For the record, neither Pamela Geller nor I were at this clearly poorly organized and ill-conceived protest yesterday. Neither of us had anything to do with organizing it or planning it in any way. Geller declares:
Max Blumenthal, notorious Jew hater, is lying, slandering and making up racist propaganda against me again. I have no idea what this rally is. I have no idea who these people are. I have no idea who organized this rally. Clearly, whoever organized this was careless, unprepared, shooting from the hip and harmful to the cause of freedom and compassion. I wasn’t even in the state, nor did I know anything about this half-assed effort. Check this out.
Worse still, the media, which never covered the big rally on June 6th is all over this ill-conceived botched mess of a protest that is being played in the media as “competing rallies” with a pro-mosque rally. Who organized this anti-mosque protest? Sharif El-Gamal?
This was very badly done, considering that the idea of two competing rallies flies in the face of reality — 70% of the American people oppose the mosque. The narrative, as a result of this circus, is that the two sides are equivalent in size. And this is the angle being broadcast on an endless loop on all the media channels.
For Blumenthal, apparently, all foes of the mosque look alike — or maybe it’s just all Pamela Geller’s fault no matter what, and if the facts don’t fit, do what ever Leftist journalist does: make it up.
