Today at the hate site of anti-Muslim lunatic Pamela Geller, there are no less than eight posts raging and spewing nasty insults at the leaders of the Great Neck Synagogue for canceling
her event, after an outcry from the community. (There may be more by
the time you read this.) This is what she does every time someone has
the courage to say no to her — she flies into a berserk rage about it,
and incites her followers to harass the object of her anger.
Rather than highlight any one of these deranged posts, I thought it might be illuminating to compile a few of the insults and ugly comments she’s written so far. For someone who claims not to be a bigoted hate maven, she certainly does seem full of rage and bile.
craven and cowardlyShe’s ranting about “free speech” again, as if the Great Neck Synagogue were obligated to provide her with a venue to preach her noxious hatred; of course, they’re not obligated at all, and this is no free speech issue.
that synagogue caved to a leftist/Islamic supremacist smear and intimidation campaign
unconscionable self-imposed dhimmitude
vicious leftist reformed rabbis
crushing freedom of speech in the age of jihad
aligned with Islamic supremacists in their jihad
I do not promote hate speech
Just as Geller is free to emit as much poisonous rhetoric as she can find within herself (and that’s a lot of poisonous rhetoric), organizations like the Great Neck Synagogue are free to decide that decent people shouldn’t be exposed to it at their facilities.
Meanwhile, another synagogue in New Jersey has offered to host Geller’s hatefest:
‘Rabbis for Romney’ Founder Extends Invitation to Pamela Geller.

The founder of Rabbis for Romney says he won’t divulge the names of its members because he fears they will be criticized for breaking with the majority of Jews who support President Barack Obama.
“I don’t want to happen to them what happened to me,” said Rabbi Bernhard Rosenberg of Congregation Beth-El in Edison, N.J. “I’ve been attacked like you’ve never heard — by rabbis, Democrats. I am a registered Democrat. I voted twice for Clinton. I’ve also been a Republican. This has nothing to do with party politics.”
Perhaps, but Rosenberg was among a certain segment of right-leaning Jews put into a bit of panic this summer upon the launch of Rabbis for Obama, a campaign-sponsored alliance that claimed at its inception “over 613 members.” That’s the number of commandments, or mitzvot, derived from the Torah and, the Obama campaign says, more than double the number of rabbis who signed on in 2008.
Conservatives have pounced on the group — which is made up of mostly Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist and other non-Orthodox clergy — and have called on the Obama campaign to disown at least one “radical rabbi” on the list. Progressive Jewish groups have protested the attacks as an “unethical smear campaign” designed “to sow divisions in the Jewish community for short-term political gain.”
Rosenberg said at first he didn’t think there should be “rabbis for anybody” but felt compelled to form a “counterweight” to the Obama group. Indeed, some Jewish and other religious leaders have echoed the sentiment of Rabbi David Wolkenfeld, director of the Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus at Princeton University, who wrote in The Huffington Post that such partisan positioning is “unsettling.”
The head of Rabbis for Romney said of his members, “I’m not asking them to do anything” other than spread the word. He said he has no plans to run ads and, “I don’t speak about this from the pulpit.”
