‘This is a war’: Free speech-lovers rally with ‘I am Pamela Geller’ after shooting

Only when it comes to Islamic terror do liberals try to blame the victims. But conservatives weren’t letting them get away with it on Monday.

In the aftermath of the attack on the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas, that left one guard wounded and two terrorists dead, social media has been on fire with arguments over where the blame should be placed.

Naturally, in an era of bootlickers for Islamist terrorists, there was no shortage of those trying to lay responsibility for the attacks at the feet of the victims, including a hit piece from British tabloid “The Daily Mail” attacking controversial event organizer Pamela Geller.

”New York Times reporter Rukmini Callimachi also asked, “Free speech aside, why would anyone do something as provocative as hosting a ‘Muhammad drawing contest?’”

Astounding that a journalist would ever start a sentence by putting free speech aside.

Fortunately, plenty of people, including Geller herself, placed the blame where it belonged: On the two Islamic terrorists whose response to art they dislike is to try to kill people.

“This is a war. This is war on free speech,” she wrote on her blog Atlas Shrugs. “What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?”

Many used the hashtag “IAmPamelaGeller,” a play on the “Je Suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie”) hashtag that followed the Charlie Hebdo shootings in France, in support of the outspoken event organizer.
