"Pamela Geller, known for her anti-Islamic positions" should read "known for her hysterical, racist bigotry" https://t.co/7hWtBmXyid

Pamela Geller's response to TX shooting: "We're at war." It's a war that Geller wants, a war upon which her Islamophobic career depends.

Pamela Geller paid the extra 10K security to hold a Yankee Charlie Hebdo bait event, right?

More from Culwell Center shooting:
This is a war. This is war on free speech. What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?
Two men with rifles and backpacks attacked police outside our event. A cop was shot; his injuries are not life-threatening, thank Gd. Please keep him in your prayers.
The bomb squad has been called to the event site to investigate a backpack left at the event site.
