This is a free speech issue. The Hutton Hotel has no right to cancel our event or any event because it doesn’t like the point of view presented.
In canceling the conference because it received threats, the Hutton Hotel is kowtowing to violence and showing that terrorism works, instead of doing what it should do: stand resolutely against violent intimidation. The conference was to be well-guarded, and the hotel knew this.
The hotel’s cancellation of the event is part of the ongoing efforts by Islamic supremacist groups to force non-Muslims to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws and to acquiesce to the Islamization of the public square. They have been pursuing such efforts in the U.S. and Europe for years.
It is noteworthy that Pamela Geller and I were singled out by the hotel. The cancellation of the conference illustrates the threats that Geller has warned about in her 2011 book Stop the Islamization of America (WND Books) and that I wrote about also in my 2008 book Stealth Jihad (Regnery).
We urge all freedom-loving Americans to voice your outrage at this capitulation to Islamic supremacist intimidation. Politely and courteously contact Steve Eckley, vice president of hotels for Amerimar Enterprises in Denver, which makes him the top exec for hotels at the corporation that manages the Hutton Hotel. His phone number is 720-318-4238. The Hutton Hotel is at 1808 West End Ave, Nashville, TN 37203.
