I keep checking my colleague Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs website every few minutes, thinking that surely it will be back by now, but now for the better part of yesterday and all of today it has been down due to a massive DDOS attack.
It’s ironic that on the eve of her Rally for Free Speech in Garland, Texas (join us — RSVP here), the foes of the freedom of speech would vividly prove her point by taking her site down. But we cannot let them win.
Pamela Geller is one of the foremost voices for freedom in the world today. Every day’s headlines brings new confirmation that what she has been saying has been right all along — and has continued to say, despite an avalanche of ridicule, scorn, and contempt that would have driven a lesser person into silence long ago. And what she is doing is crucial. We have to get the truth out about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, we have to do it in an effective way, and we have to do it quickly. No one rivals Pamela Geller in doing that.
Pamela Geller is working today with web experts to get her site up and running again, and as the hours drag by and she is still not back online, it is clear that she needs the foremost web security experts available. Please help her be able to meet the cost of this with a donation via Paypal to email@example.com. The battle to get Atlas Shrugs back online is a key battle in the war to defend the freedom of speech. Islamic supremacists have worked for years to silence Pamela Geller by defaming and threatening her. Now they’re trying to silence her by force. We cannot — we must not — acquiesce to this.
