After an interview earlier today on Fox News, Pamela Geller said she was disappointed that host Martha MacCallum had the nerve to challenge Geller’s incendiary mode of operation. Then, in the tradition of co-opting the language and legacy of the civil rights movement, Geller–the face of Islamophobia herself–compared her actions to Rosa Parks.
In Geller’s own words:
“I did an interview with Martha MacCallum this morning concerning the jihad attack on our free speech conference in Garland, Texas. It was adversarial and disappointing. If we subscribe to MacCallum’s way of conquered thinking, Christians in the Middle East should convert to Islam, because to do otherwise is offensive to devout Muslims — which is why they are getting slaughtered. Apparently fighting against oppression and subjugation is ‘crass.’
“And clearly Rosa Parks was being provocative and incendiary when she sat in the front of the bus.“
There’s more. Watch for yourself:
