Pamela Geller has much detail on this here. And there’s this: “Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer To Speak At EDL Rally In Woolwich, Campaigners Call For UK Entry Ban,” by Jessica Elgot in the Huffington Post UK, June 20. That one starts out this way:
Anti-fascist campaigners have called on the home secretary to stop two far-right, anti-Islam activists from America speaking at an English Defence League rally in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered.
So you see, it is “far-right” to defend the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all before the law. It is “anti-fascist” to try to shut down those who defend these freedoms and rights. It is “hate” to defend Constitutional principles and free societies. It is “anti-fascist” to demonize those who defend those principles, and thereby to enable those who want to destroy them and create an authoritarian state. War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.
It all hinges, of course, on the false but endlessly repeated claim that Geller and I preach “hate.” It is not, for the umpteenth time, hateful to defend freedom, or to point out how Islamic supremacist preachers often preach real hatred and incitement to violence. The fog of disinformation and propaganda is thick, and millions can’t see clearly. But that doesn’t change the truth.
