Pam Geller Named to Southern Poverty Law Center Hate Hall of Fame
The Southern Poverty Law Center comes a bit late to the game in understanding the power and danger of anti-Muslim hate. But they’ve made great strides by naming Pam Geller’s Stop the Islamization of America as an official hate group, alongside such wonderful representatives of the species as the Westboro Baptist Church, the Aryan Nation, KKK, and the Nation of Islam. It’s about time Pam was recognized for her important contribution to the genre of hate.
She responded by publishing Morris Dees divorce papers, as if that was supposed to somehow defame SPLC. Such lunacy on her part is rich when you consider that she and her husband operated a car dealership with alleged ties to the mob and an especially gruesome murder. She also exhibited her typical histrionic bellowing observed whenever her ox is gored:
“It’s outrageous that the SPLC designates a group dedicated to protecting the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and legal equality for all Americans as a ‘hate group,'” she said. “The SPLC, instead of standing for those freedoms, is carrying water for the real haters, the real neo-Nazi Jew-haters: the forces of Islamic supremacism and jihad. The SPLC doesn’t even have a category for Islamic jihadi groups. The greatest threat facing our nation, our people, our world, and they are shilling for them.”
…The SPLC is just a cash cow for the clueless and/or complicit tools of Islamic supremacism on the Left. The SPLC is reviled in civil rights circles for its notorious reputation. It does little to no work, while its officials enriching themselves by raising huge amounts from unsuspecting donors.”
I hate to spoil the party Pammy, but precisely which “civil rights circles” revile SPLC for its “notorious reputation?” She of course means her own organization which she (seriously, now) views as a “civil rights” organization. Why sure, she’s for the civil rights of everyone who isn’t Muslim. I wonder if she’s opposed to allowing Muslims to be American citizens. You see it creates a rather inconvenient problem because once they’re citizens they’re entitled to the rights we white people (and even Black people, heaven forfend) enjoy.
Her talk about SPLC being a cash cow for its officials is also rich when you consider the tony digs Pammy enjoys on New York’s Upper Eastside in her multi-million dollar condo, thanks to the support of her “clueless complicit tools of anti-Muslim hate on the right” whose largess offers her the lifestyle to which she’s become accustomed and entitled. Not to mention her husband–who conveniently passed away just as she began her anti-Muslim jihad–willing her the gains, gotten and ill, of their Long Island car dealership.
I’m also delighted to see the Jewish Task Force on the list, which is a JDL-spinoff run by Chaim Ben Pesach, aka Victor Vancier. The latter served time in federal prison for engaging in acts of terror while he was in the JDL. Many believe that Vancier is the owner of the Masada2000 hate site.
SPLC, by rights, should add other American Jewish extremist settler support groups like Hebron Fund and Central Fund of Israel to its list since they echo Geller’s anti-Muslim ideology. Several years ago, I called and spoke to Mark Potok about this, but I don’t think he felt the urgency that I did.

Pamela is bat-shit insane. I’ve followed her exploits with great amusement over the years. Here are some of the highlights:

MY SNARK: It wouldn’t surprise me to see Vancier and his “Jewish” Task Force merge with the Westboro Baptist “Church”!

P.S. SPOKEN VERY HUFFILY: What-e-v-e-r, Victor! As though a “man” your age having a “bowl haircut” with unevenly cut “bangs” hanging almost down to your eyebrows isn’t just t-o-t-a-l-l-y, p-o-s-i-t-i-v-e-l-y, a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y, u-n-d-e-n-i-a-b-l-y, GAY! Like Stuart Smalley* says, denial ain’t just a river in Egypt!

Thanks. I’d never heard or read much of this before.
P.P.S. “Westboro Baptist Church attorney Margie Phelps said Sunday that President Barack Obama was probably a sign of the Apocalypse.
“The president is going to be king of the world before this is all said and done and he is most likely The Beast spoken of in the Revelation,” she told Fox News’ Chris Wallace.

RE: Westboro Baptist “Church”
MY “PLAINTIFF WAIL”: Dear G-g and most merciful Lord, please help us; both for our own sakes as well as yours! G-d? G-d? Merciful Lord? You there, G-d? I know it’s Sunday, but this is very important. We’re faced with a truly “existential threat” down here, Lord! I beseech you, most Omnipotent One! You napping?
Insane hate talk in this country has morphed from a cottage industry into a financial bonanza for many of those better connected vomityrosaurs. At least this female of the species upholds our evolving equal-opportunity possibilities; gotta give her credit for that. Rupert Murdoch, who grows ever more financially blessed through that hate factory of his euphemistically titled Fox News has become, for me, one of the greatest arguments I’ve ever heard against immigration, even the legal kind.
Here’s something I didn’t know until today when doing a little googling on SIOA, even the ADL condemns it
Opening of the post:
Backgrounder: Stop Islamization of America (SIOA)
Posted: August 26, 2010
Updated: September 14, 2010
Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), created in 2009, promotes a conspiratorial anti-Muslim agenda under the guise of fighting radical Islam. The group seeks to rouse public fears by consistently vilifying the Islamic faith and asserting the existence of an Islamic conspiracy to destroy “American” values. The organization warns of the encroachment of shari’a, or Islamic law, and encourages Muslims to leave what it describes as the “falsity of Islam.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) raises enormous amounts of money by frightening people, probably mostly elderly Jews, with scare stories about mostly-small groups of nasty people and, when they’re lucky, getting verbally attacked by those groups in return. I’d be interested to see evidence that they have ever, in their half century of existence and with the hundreds of millions of dollars they have raised in that time ($89 million in gross receipts in 2009 alone!), done anything about Southern poverty — aside from making sure that founder Morris Dees and CEO Richard Cohen (each with $320,000 in compensation in 1989) and their top associates never come within a million miles (or a million dollars) of being poor themselves!
There are many organizations that fight, through law and many other means, for civil rights and in the interests of poor people, and that need and deserve the financial support of those who can spare it. The SPLC, which apparently chose its name so that its acronym would be confused with that of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and had $228 million in net assets at the end of 2009, doesn’t deserve a cent.
Utter nonsense. $320K is not a lot of money for the CEO of a large non profit these days. Would you prefer that they earn minimum wage? Or do the job for the good of humanity & earn nothing? At one time SPLC focussed on issues of poverty. Now it has evolved to deal with issue of racism and hate. That too is perfectly reasonable when a non profit changes its mission.
I’d like to see where your fundraising figures come from. Please always offer support for such claims in the form of links to credible sources.
The issue about deliberately confusing SCLC and SPLC is also nonsense. The names aren’t at all similar even if the acronyms are slightly. This is much ado about very little.
