CPAC Pam Geller Chopped: Accusing CPAC Board of Muslim Infiltration Having Effect – Bill Maher Confused

Keeping an eye on Islam, fighting against, and educating about Islamists is no longer a conservative issue for CPAC, or maybe just a little too conservative now that we’re 11-1/2 years out from the attacks of 9/11/01 and expanding the Republican “tent.” Maybe it isn’t cool to talk about Jihad. Geller’s popular forums discussing the influence of Islam in America and across the globe will not be available to CPAC attendees this year. She is not invited – never mind the speakers she provided spoke to standing-room only crowds. What does Benghazi mean to conservatives, or Dr. Afridi sitting in a Pakistani prison after helping us find bin Laden? Who’s going to fight this battle, and who better to lead it than Pam Geller and Robert Spencer at JihadWatch – because neither are running for public office? Another win for Barack Obama. He’s doing the happy dance today, and singing a little Al Green. Oh but wait…

Pamela Geller

In 2011, Geller warned that the CPAC board had been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, saying that the Board was either “clueless or complicit.” See that video below.

I won’t be at CPAC this year. Every year AFDI organizes a must-see event addressing issues the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan cabal refuse to address (jihad, sharia, the war on freedom in the West).

This year, I applied to speak and was ignored. I tried to get a room for an AFDI event, “The War on Free Speech” and was ignored. So, for the first time in five years, I won’t be at CPAC. Last year Suhail Khan bragged out loud that he (and his other operatives) had successfully kept Robert Spencer and me from being invited to speak. He went so far as to warn people not to attend our events or read our books. Source Pam at Atlas Shrugs

In 2004, Norquist married Samah Alrayyes, a Palestinian Muslim working as a PR Specialist – the director of Kuwait’s Islamic Free Market Institute.

Michelle Malkin, January 2009 on “the GOP’s Grover Norquist problem:”

The RNC may not be a “policymaking body,” but its policy positions drive “strategy” and “tactics” and donor outreach efforts.

Which brings us back to Grover Norquist and the unpleasant realities that these strategists and rebranding gurus and RNC candidates don’t want to talk about.

Party power player Norquist and the ATR propose to help fix the GOP’s problems.

Norquist is part of the problem.

Some of us have not forgotten how Norquist made common cause with the left-wing zealots at People for the American Way in a forum bashing the Patriot Act — and how he forged even more dangerous alliances in the name of Muslim GOP outreach.

Geller at past CPACs:

In 2009, she brought Geert Wilders, who is the head of the third largest party in the Netherlands and has spoken out against the Islamization of his country.

In 2010 she held an event that her organization, The American Freedom Defense Initiative, hosted, titled “Jihad: The Political Third Rail”, with speakers like Allen West, Wafa Sultan, Simon Deng, Anders Gravers, and Steve Coughlin.

In 2011, she hosted an event discussing the Ground Zero Mosque with 9/11 families. In 2012, the event was titled “Islamic Law in America.”

Geller and her coworkers recently won a court battle allowing them to post ads that countered the #Myjihad ad campaign that posited that jihad was a peaceful word. Yet despite the law’s defense of her rights, the ACU will not stand up for her against critics. Source: Breitbart Big Government

Pam Geller on her anti-Islamist advertisement campaign- read it all here.

Hamas-CAIR’s ad campaign is a psyop.“#MyJihad” is a cynical, misleading, and deceptive campaign designed to distract from and obscure the true meaning of jihad that Muslims the world over understand and all too many act upon. They’re attempting to fool Americans into thinking that jihad is about getting in your exercise and making friends.

My ads, in contrast, tell the truth about the jihad that too many Muslims believe in and act upon, and the only jihad that Americans need to be concerned about. They’re designed to tell the truth about jihad and lay bare CAIR’s deceptions and lies.

There have been over 20,000 jihad attacks since 9/11, each one with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. And so I created a jihad campaign speaking about the true meaning of jihad. Our new campaign focuses on how jihadists really use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. It uses actual quotes by jihadis and Islamic supremacists, including Osama bin Laden and Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as statements from Hamas TV and one of the victims of the Fort Hood jihad massacre.

One ad depicts Osama bin Laden and the burning Twin Towers along with a bin Laden quote explaining why he took down the Twin Towers: “The first thing we are calling you to is Islam.” Another quotes an eyewitness to the jihad mass murders of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, noting that he was shouting “Allahu akbar” as he murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood. Another quotes a Hamas TV music video including the lyric, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.” A fourth quotes Times Square jihad car bomber Faisal Shahzad saying that jihad involving “weaponry” was “an obligation and duty in Islam on every Muslim.” AmericanPower has more.

UPDATE 3-6-13: Read the latest about CPAC People’s Choice Blog Award Winner and why he can’t accept his award at CPAC 2013.

CPAC has done something right, as they always do – most everything right. Chris Christie is out, Gingrich and Palin are in and Bill Maher is confused. Last year Palin declined the CPAC offer to keynote. Bunkerville has more. UPDATE 3-4-13: Da Tech Guy attends CPAC every year, reports from CPAC, and at times speaks in some forums. He has a very insightful post up on Pam and her past participation. I hope you will read it here. 

Linked at I’m a Man, I’m 41 who suggests that chopping Pam from CPAC is a good way to get a third party launched.

    We haven’t had a open, serious mass jihadist attack in a long while so maybe some Americans have become a bit complacent and consider it a “back burner” issue but why would jihadists even want to do outward open damage when they get everything handed to them such as not interfering with the last revolt against the Mullahs in Iran or the “Arab Spring” and recently selling F-16’s to the new Egyptian government headed by the MB? They’re getting just about everything they want handed to them by The President of the United States. They’ve got to be high fiving in Mecca. I mean, just look at who is probably going to get to set in the big chair at CIA.

    • michigan, exactly right. Brennan will be in. Hearings are joke. Now Rand Paul is a joke. I don’t live in NYC, as does Pamela. I didn’t lose anyone in 9/11 that I knew personally, and I can’t even imagine not understanding the threat of Jihad. Maybe most people simply don’t know because they read Yahoo News or something similar or listen to NBC all the time. I bet a lot people haven’t a clue what Jihad means. This from CPAC is uncalled for, in my opinion. It’s not like no one there was uninterested.

  • The GOP has been heavily infiltrated in large part by Grover Norquist. Few understand how much he turned Bush away from clear distinctions and understandings of the dangers of Islam via his introduction to CAIR and other outright shills for the Muslim Brotherhood. (Here

    Norquist is (or at least was) also on the board of GOProud. Most conservatives are clueless at the real intentions (or at least the naivete) of leaders like Norquist.

    I know some Muslims. Most are as clueless at what the Quran really says as are most Christians. But the fundamental, underlying philosophy of their guiding document IS to coerce submission or conversion to Islam by any means necessary. A Christian who doesn’t understand the bible – still “gets” that the Bible teaches to lay down your life for Christ, and to allow Jesus to change you to exhibit love, joy, peace, etc no matter how far we all fall.

    It is as much spiritual (in my opinion) as a covert conspiracy, or simply useful idiots being played by Marxist and Islamic forces who are intent at an all assault on American culture.

    Let’s hope Palin, Carson and others immediately denounce this and threaten to denounce CPAC in their speeches rather than allow them to continue to insulate the public – even conservatives – from the truth of the most evil threat to America today.

    Incidentally, Norquist was behind the funneling of K-Street dollars that corrupt the post-Gingrich Congress as discussed in this hidden fact unearthed during the Santorum campaign –

    • PolitiJim, very insightful comment. I’ll follow your links. So, Norquist has been on this track before marrying a Palestinian woman working for the Kuwaiti government?

  • Ugh.

    I saw the handwriting on the wall for this one — a while back.

    I won’t be attending CPAC this year. It was a boring event anyway — except for Spencer and Geller.

    • AOW, I haven’t been. It’s just a terrible time of the year for me. I don’t get Mitch McConnell being there, but maybe some one will school him on how to talk to the press, and how often to do it.

  • Thanks for the link! Just as disturbing is the panel they have lined up on Immigration. They are going to play the Rino tune. Hijacked once again.

    • bunkerville – you’re most welcome. I’ve just looked up the immigration panel, and don’t know any of them. The title is interesting: Respecting Families and The Rule of Law. What a cute trick – Lindsay Graham is on an Islamist discussion panel. Devin Nunes should be a star. I’m hoping they have some knockout speeches to get everyone’s attention in the best way possible. We need it.

    CPAC has been co-opted and compromised. Its time for patriotic Conservatives to form a new organization excluding RINO’s and those who are bought and paid for with Saudi money.
