1) Anyone paying attention knows that Mediate has one purpose: to smear conservatives. They aren’t going to be objective. They aren’t going to be reasonable. Carlson is wasting her time. It’s like trying to reason with a 5 year old.
2) By taking quotes out of context you can twist anything. The classic example is that the bible says “there is no god.” Of course if you take it in context it actually says: “The fool says in his heart there is no god.”
3) Their “god” is most certainly not our God. The majority of christians will tell you this. The majority of muslims will tell you this. The only people who would be offended by this statement are liberals who have this strange idea that all religious paths lead to the same place.
Interesting statement, that last. Liberals' ideas of religion are indeed strange. But i-slam is more an authoritarian militancy, so they are much more comfortable with it. They are very comfortable with authoritarianism around the globe. I think they believe they can subvert it when the time comes. How wrong they are.

We were running guns to insurgents in Syria? I don’t think many Americans would have an issue with that. Why didn’t they just come out with it?

Obviously we’ve proven we can’t be trusted with automobiles and the government should outlaw them.

Anyone who aspires to be better than they are meets the definition of a hypocrite. The word itself doesn’t discern between the repentent and the unrepentant.
May 12, 2015 at 11:25am
I can’t believe any non-muslims in this country would take the side of sharia law in this matter. Open your eyes. I assure you that you do not want to see sharia law here.
No one is taking the side of sharia law or the gun men.
What the Right Wing media seems to forget is that all the mosques and Islamic organizations in that community purposely ignored Geller and her anti-muslim hate group. Geller’s organization is not just being condemned for this one event, but rather their whole track-record in regards to muslims in this country ..

Free speech comes with a cost. The cost is there will be people saying things you don’t like. Giving voice to ideas you find offensive. Words you classify as hateful.
Hate speech laws were the first step down a very slippery slope. It was only a matter of time before it’s definition changed to cover religious speech, religious proselytizing and anything else the bible tells you to do that’s not politically correct at the moment.

I think you meant Romans 1:18-32.
There’s also 1 Corinthians 6:9.
I wonder how people would feel if they had simply put those verses up.
yup you are correct, I have never been good at puncuation :) I always like the one in Romans becuase it directly condems all sin and identifies unnatural sexual attraction quite well
Dr. F: Leviticus, from the Old Testament and 1st Timothy from the New Testament too. I think there are something like 5 or 8 references from the Old Testament to the New Testament that call such conduct Evil, which is the real Christian view of such things.
And like this pastor implied, we love the sinner but hate the sin; not love sin and promote more sinning.
 May 11, 2015 at 9:16am
They want the entire world to be ruled by sharia law – muslims and non-muslims alike. Free speech is far from the only freedom they want to take from us. And it’s far from the only freedom they’re willing to kill us over.

My first thought was “Running around scared in the dark…. what could possibly go wrong?”
May 7, 2015 at 8:29am
If you know someone was going to try and kill you for exercising your freedom of “insert your favorite freedom here”, where would you go to do it? I’d go to a place where I was confident I’d be protected from those who wanted to take that freedom from me. That used to be the whole USA but now, unfortunately, you have to be more careful.
God bless Texas.
May 7, 2015 at 8:26am
I’ve always said that we need people on the edge of free speech to ensure that we don’t lose it. We may find what these people say to be vile (I could name several examples of people I refuse to listen to here but you can insert your own) but it’s very important we make sure they are allowed to speak.
Those who would silence their opposition are the ones who need to be stopped.
 May 7, 2015 at 8:19am
Add Hannity to the list of those who “Get it.” And Geller makes the point well. Muslims want all to be ruled by shariah law. They want to take away OUR freedoms.
I heard Michael Savage excoriating O'Reilly and Van Sustern for criticizing Geller as well.
drfrost………no….. they are taking away our freedoms…………and its working for them in Europe very well
I am extremely offended by islam. Only someone sitting to long in the sun pounding sand could ever follow some sick pedophile. They are worse than than naziism, the KKK, the black panthers and liberals combined. They do nothing to further civilization and have caused death and destruction throughout the world. Yes I am highly offended by islam and they should be banished
If they can burn our flag in protest of American policies, we can draw their prophet in protest of Islamic and especially Shariah laws mysogynystic, intolerant, and anti-gay policies. Not to mention the adaptation of the tactic of of suicide bombing innocent civilians. Furthermore we are AMERICANS and nobody tells us what we can and can’t do!
So here is the crazy 'fight' as I see it.
Just as this (extremist) cleric believes ”The prophet said whoever changes then kill him” - there are many who believe this cleric should be killed for his beliefs / what he is saying.
So if they each want to kill each other for their beliefs or lack thereof / their 'practices' or lack thereof ...
How are they any different from each other?
How is this cleric different from the American pastor whop put up the sign: "Jesus would stone homos”? Or the AZ pastor who offered that: "Here's what the Bible says, Leviticus 20:13, 'If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.' And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along."
Or the most recent example with the Georgia pastor offering on his church sign that "homosexuality is a death-worthy crime” - ???
So how are those Christian 'leaders' any different than this Muslim cleric???
Are they each not enticing others to take violent action against those they see as non-believes or sinners???
For me the bottom line seems to be...
How do we 'elevate' Freedom of Speech ABOVE god/religious belief?
Is that not what is needed?
...placing greater 'value' on the 'word of man' - what actually comes out of a human's mouth -- than on the (personally interpreted / supposed) word of some god???
Anjem Choudary is nothing but a goat and child molester.
Pam, organize another event in Texas.
Texas will Set The Example And Lead The Way.
This is a defining event for this country.
Lets print the winning cartoon on T shirts. Use the money to support Free Speech.
I would warn that Catholics and Jews think twice before rallying around Islam.
No, Hannity does NOT "get it".
He is the first to defend anyone who creates government overreach and exacerbation of liberty usurpation if it’s done in the name of "conservatism". (see Bush)
Hannity: “Bush will likely go down as one of the greatest presidents in American history.” The ONLY reason Bush is not dead last on the list of American presidents is because Obama is his Mississippi.
My issue with Hannity is one I have with most "conservatives". Most conservatives preach for, "government getting out of the way", yet when government regulates something conservative their silence is ever present and tend to defend the action.
My question is "How do they know it's really a depiction of Muhammed? are there photo's of him so we can compare?" Just because they say it's him doesn't make it him.
Hannity is a statist and a fraud, perpetuating the D vs R myth.
For that matter, our own gov't wantshas been taking away our freedoms.
We need to start killing these so called "Clerics" before they start killing us !
In order to win this battle we need to be honest with ourselves and with others. Extremist Muslims want everyone to be ruled by Sharia law. The majority of Muslims are moderate and do not adhere to the Sharia, nor are they violent. We'll never convince 1.5 billion Muslims that their religion is wrong, what we can do is support the moderates and condemn and punish the extremists. Geller and Hannity would agree that it's important not to spread misinformation by saying that all Muslims want to be ruled by sharia.
"At one point when Choudary talked over Geller, she snapped back, “I’m talking, sir. I know you’re used to stepping over women. But you’re not going to have it here, okay?”
Love it! Though it flew over the heads of the Lefties...
And yet the american left and other liberals including RiNOs think muslims can coexist with the constitution.
The left and the media put the lipstick on the islamist who became president.
When rome invited the vandals in, look what happened. You can only pay tribute so long.
Unfortunately, the freedom i have known in my life is slowly disappearing. My grandkids will know only debt and war. Hopefully, at some point , an american leader like Truman (im a conservative, thats how bad its gotten) will rise up and understand why we built nukes. Its time to sit down with China, Russia and a couple of others and discuss removing the islamic threat to humanity.
Luckily the number of radicals who think this way make up a very small group of people...probably only this guy and two or three others.
It really bothers me that President Obama said that his goal was to allow 13 million Muslims into the country during his Presidency because I don’t believe its governments role to be selective with religions concerning immigration. Plus, with the problems Islam is having with extremism, it makes Americans less safe.
Isn't this literally THE definition of "shoving your religion down our throats"?
Isn't that what people always bitch and moan about regarding Christianity?
I'm going to draw a picture of the pedophile murderer and liar called Muhammad this week.

Thank you in advance for addressing this matter.)
I agree with the concept of free speech and and the comment that sharia law applies to only muslims. Having said that Pamela Geller is the lowest common denominator of what is wrong with the web. And individual who seeks to make money by setting up controversial situations and then appealing to the low biased group who seeks to do nothing more that rationalize their contempt for other people, their culture and religion. Pamela Geller's analogy that her taking any responsibility for the purposeful mocking of a religion under the guise of "free speech" is like blaming a rape victim for wearing a short skirt merely shows her considerable lack of intelligence. The correct analogy is a comparison to an individual who yells "fire" in a crowded room and then claiming free speech. She had more than enough knowledge of the potential reaction from the contest. She even admits that it was intended to illicit an inflammatory response. So much like the individual who yells fire in a crowded room, the not only understood the potential response of her "speech". So yea she deserves to carrying some degree of responsibility.
You are correct, but you understate the issue. It s not just our freedoms that they want, if we will not believe they want us all dead. Your life has no significance to them and they actually believe that they will be blessed for killing those who oppose, speak against or fail to worship Allah. Read the 9th Chapter (Surah) 0f the Quran. Be vigilant and informed
This is a fascinating conversation when you see it with greater context...when you look at this 3 dimensional opposed to 2. The point Hannity is making is that a free person shouldn't be held to a "law" that they don't agree and/or subscribe too. A free person has the right to believe and say what they desire without repercussion. I agree with this and I'm sure everyone here does as well. So let me ask you this question, how does this differ from being ruled by a government...R's or D's? They create laws that I don't agree with such as taxation ("legalized" theft) every day and then threaten to fine me and/or kidnap me and put me in a cage if I don't comply with their demands. How is gov't any different than sharia? It's not! See, the belief in gov't is nothing more than a religion. They both run off the assumption that there is a "higher power" that has AUTHORITY over you. So statism is nothing more than another form of religion that uses threats and/or violence to make people comply (you won't go to heaven, you'll go to jail, etc.). I highly recommend that any individual seeking to truly understand what Liberty REALLY is does some research on Anarcho-Capitalism. It's the only true idea of real liberty. Don't get caught up in how it works. If you are a real Republican statist, which I use to be, you have some level of belief in the REAL meaning of capitalism. Once you grasp the concept of true Liberty, you will see that statism is nothing more than hypocrisy.
Let’s have a Drawing Choudary Cartoon Event.
It's very simple. Radical Muslims want to kill you. The silent, Moderate Muslims want Radical Muslims to kill you.
Thanks Choudary for confirming to the world what Sharia court is all about.
Do you hear that IRVING TX?
Ban the **^%*& Sharia court in TX.
If ANYONE had said something as crazy as what that cleric said twenty years ago, they'd have him locked away in a psych ward or hauled off to jail, and today we just say everyone else is "Islamophobic".
Phobias are irrational fears. How is it "phobic" to be afraid of being killed by people who are killing others and promising to kill you?
Every American should hear this Muslim guy speak, as her represents the views of hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world. I liked his point that he believes that everyone should obey Islamic sharia law. Liberals are in denial about what an evil and violent religion that Islam is and always will be.

Sharia law = tyranny!
Biblical law = freedom?
Conservative Christians always seem to be decrying the separation of church and state. It seems like many of you are cool with theocracy as long as it's your church in charge
Leftists won't take Geller's side out of fear. They are afraid of Muslims attacking them, afraid of being labeled racists, afraid of losing votes, afraid of having to stand on a principle, afraid people will recognize their record of failure, and afraid someone will notice this is the third terrorist attack on US soil on Obama's watch.
Obama would never want to betray his beloved Muslim brothers. Just look at how he sat on his hands while ISIS took over the middle east… and then squandered all gains from Iraq and Afghanistan. He has destroyed our foreign policy. He has ruined our country.
Stateside, Obama has crippled our economy. Everybody I know is either out of work or under-employed. And our expenses keep rising. My health insurance is now up to $400/month. Before the government touched it, it was $250/month! My auto insurance, which the government has yet to ruin, is thankfully only $24/month (from Insurance Panda). Please, Obama! Don’t try to socialize ANYTHING ELSE!
With everything Obama touches now in shambles, Barry needs a new hobby. When is he going to wake up? When is America and the rest of the world going to wake up? Islamic extremists need to be eliminated… and for that to happen in the west, Islam needs to be confined to the Middle East.
They are bullies. If the GOP had the same huevos as Ms. Geller and stood up to the democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) the country and the world would be in much better shape.

” She was spoiling for a fight, except that she wasn’t going to do the fighting herself, she left it to the police to fight it for her.” – DesertR
The government protecting the rights of it’s citizens even when a minority think they shouldn’t have that right and are willing to kill to stop them. That’s precisely what they’re supposed to do.
When christian extremists were killing people at abortion clinics, I wonder if you had a similar attitude…
 May 6, 2015 at 10:51am
We have people willing to kill over constitutionally protected speech. What that speech is and who is offends doesn’t matter. What matters is that people are willing to kill to take away our constitutionally protected freedoms. And trust me on this, this is just one of many they want to take from us. Either stand with us on this constitutional principal or get in line with the people who are willing to trade a little freedom for a little security.

When was the last time Iran did anything that indicated they have a shred of common sense?
They finalized a deal to buy S-300 SAM missiles in April. But you really should ask mommy how to use Google before you start going to the grown-up web sites.

First, I remember watching the episode where Glen Beck was predicting the Arab spring. And I actually thought to myself: “Glenn, you’ve gone off the deep end this time.” A few short months later I, like most people, was scratching my and head and wondering how he saw that coming.
Second, it doesn’t take a genius to see we’re headed for a financial cliff. What do you think is going to happen when we go over that cliff? Do you think social upheaval and martial law is not a possibility?
 May 5, 2015 at 1:08pm
I think it’s more accurate to say that Islam is a religious, political AND military system wrapped up into one. So you cannot treat it as if it was only a religion.
