Is this woman worth covering anymore? Do our readers even care to read the verbal diarrehea that she recycles endlessly? Contradicting herself at every turn? The lunatic, fanatic, charlatan Pamela Geller has now thrown her support behind a Nazi sympathizer and leading figure in the former apartheid regime of South Africa, Eugene Terreblanche.
For us at LW it is not surprising that she would throw her support behind Terreblanche. She is an avid supporter of Israeli Apartheid and supremacy and so when a historical parallel such as South African apartheid comes to the fore she has no option but to condemn Nelson Mandela and the struggle for freedom of the Black South Africans. For her it is a matter of consistency in hatred, oppression and injustice. She sees clearly that Palestinians are the new Black South Africans and the TerreBlanche’s of White South Africa are today’s Avigdor Lieberman’s and Benyamin Netanyahu’s.
One has to ask Pamela to step back for a moment. Maybe she is writing before thinking? Or maybe she just doesn’t care? Pamela, as a Jew can you honestly say you support a man whose emblem is eerily similar to the Nazi bent cross? Have you lost any shred of reason and integrity that you may have had left?
So what does Pamela have to say?
Every single headline calls Terreblanche a “white supremacist,” alluding to his position in the waning days of the apartheid government, thirty-odd years ago. But the real story here is not that Terreblanche was a “white supremacist” — if he really was (and I know how the left loves to throw around those labels).
Ridiculous. Only Pamela doesn’t seem to get the fact that Terreblanche was an avowed white supremacist.
we have been taught to believe that the ANC and Nelson Mandela are the “good guys.”
So now Nelson Mandela is one of the bad guys? This woman is in her own world. This is the exact same thing that Pamela and her buddies tried to do to Jimmy Carter. Paint him as some sort of crazy evil radical and an anti-Semite. Don’t be surprised if next Nelson Mandela is called an anti-Semite.
Maybe she should read the following article in the Daily Mail to remove her ignorance but my guess is we won’t be seeing a retraction anytime soon.
Funeral of Eugene Terreblanche Takes Place Amid Tight Security by Jane Flanagan
Their arms raised in a Nazi salute, thousands of angry white followers greet the coffin of Eugene Terreblanche as it leaves church.
The South African white supremacist was buried on Friday, six days after being hacked to death by two black farm workers.
Supporters travelled from across the country to mourn his murder and, in some cases, plot revenge.
Children and even babies were dressed in the uniform of 69-year-old Terreblanche’s party, the AWB.

A massive security operation was mounted for the ceremony amid fears of violent clashes between whites and blacks.
But there were few black faces to be seen. Some mourners muttered ‘housemaid’ in Afrikaans when a black government minister paying official respects walked past.
Despite calls for calm from political leaders following Terreblanche’s brutal killing, the crowd were united in the view that the death of the white supremacist leader was a political assassination.
‘None of us are safe,’ said Jan van der Merwe, a small scale farmer.
‘White farmers are always been murdered in this country, but now they have killed our leader, there must be consequences.’

Terreblanche, the 69-year-old leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) was bludgeoned to death last weekend, allegedly by two of his farm workers.
But the Afrikaner community is increasingly convinced his death is part of a sinister plot to decimate the descendants of South Africa’s original white settlers.
Although the funeral, in Terreblanche’s rural home town of Venterdorp, passed off peacefully, the country’s worst racial crisis since the end of apartheid is far from over.
And with only nine weeks until the start of the World Cup, funeral goers expressed fears for the safety of the 32 competing teams.
‘This government has lost control of the country,’ Cornelia Jonck said.
‘They cannot even protect those of us who live here, how can they guarantee the safety of hundreds of thousands of football fans.
‘There will be bloodshed and then people of the world will know what we have to face every single day of our lives.’
Mrs Jonck, 61, was among the first to pitch a camping chair on the lawn in front of the brick church in the North West Province town, to hear the funeral broadcast on loud speakers.
As strains of the Afrikaner national anthem, Die Stem, meaning The Call, blasted out, police helicopters hovered overhead. The bumper of an armoured police car, parked outside the church, provided a seat for some elderly mourners who were unable to find room inside.

There was audible tutting and a vigorous shaking of heads among those lining the road outside the church as the convoy carrying family of ‘the leader’ was followed by police cars with black officers at the wheel.
‘It is not that we don’t like the blacks,’ said Margarite Dreyer, a lifelong member of Mr Terreblanche’s AWB party.
‘It is just that we want to be apart from them. We have our God and our ways, and they have their ancestors and the things that are important to them.
‘God did not want us to be mixed like this. It is not a coincidence that Oom Gene [Terreblanche] died at Easter.
‘He died so that we may be saved – so that God will give us our own homeland at last, so that the Afrkaners may be alone, like the people of Israel.’
A number of homemade banners blamed the country’s President Jacob Zuma, and the firebrand leader of the ruling party’s youth wing, Julius Malema, directly for the killing of Mr Terreblanche, a father of one daughter.

‘That black group from Julius, it doesn’t matter to them who you are, if your skin is white, they are going to kill you,’ shouted one tearful woman as she queued for a seat in the small church.
‘He is a monkey auntie, he belongs in the bush,’ a young boy added.
Mr Malema’s resurrection of the township refrain ‘Shoot the Boer’ has stoked anti-white feeling within the country in recent weeks, many in the crowd claimed.
A number of mourners called for Mr Malema to be ‘taken out’ for his part in creating an atmosphere of rural lawlessness.
At least two white farmers are murdered each week in South Africa.
‘I would have no trouble pulling the trigger myself,’ an AWB member from Ventersdorp said. ‘I am happy to kill him, but I don’t want to go to jail for doing it. I’d rather die myself.’
Andre Erasmus, a pastor who was among the crowd, was adamant that Mr Terreblanch was not murdered in a row with his workers over pay.
He believed that about 10 years ago, ‘a war was declared on the white man in the country and nobody has done anything about it’.
Loyal: AWB members stand guard outside the church grounds
There were audible wails of grief as the murdered Afrikaner’s coffin was carried into the church draped in the red, black and white Nazi-like flag of his AWB movement. Two men wearing the group’s military-style uniform stood at each end.
On the other side of town, the country’s trade union federation called a mass meeting to ensure there would be no repeat of the black versus white clashes that had taken place earlier in the week when the alleged killers appeared in court.
Police and army units were drafted into the tiny town to ensure the funeral service and burial on Terreblanche’s farm passed off peacefully.
Terreblanche was an iconic figure in the country; a large man with silver beard and piercing blue eyees, he attended rallies on horseback.
He was a fervent opposer of black rule. He had lived in relative obscurity since his release from prison in 2004 after a sentence for beating a black man nearly to death.
Despite fears to the contrary, his death has not sparked wider violence.
The acrimonious aftermath of Terreblanche’s murder revealed strained race relations 16 years after apartheid collapsed and Nelson Mandela became president, urging all races to come together.
Terreblanche was hacked to death while he slept at his farm, apparently after a row over wages. The attack with machetes and pipes is said to have been so violent that Terreblanche’s body was ‘unrecognisable’ .
His alleged killers worked for him on the farm outside Ventersdorp, north-west of Johannesburg.
