Update: Jewish Federation of LA Pulls the Plug on Pamela Geller’s Hatefest

We re-posted Richard Silverstein’s blogpost on the shocking fact that Pamela Geller was scheduled to speak at an event hosted by one of the nation’s largest Jewish federations.

In the ensuing hours the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles has had the good sense to not want to be associated with such a crazed hatemonger as Geller and decided to pull the plug on her speaking engagement.

Geller is fuming and calling on her followers to flood the federation with emails and phone calls. Loonwatchers should congratulate the federation and urge them to be more careful in the future (h/t: CriticalDragon):

Deranged hate group leader Pamela Geller is raging and spewing venom this morning (I know, it’s her usual state) because the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles pulled the plug on her scheduled speech titled “Islamic Jew Hatred as the Root Cause of Failure to Achieve Peace.”

As usual when a Jewish organization refuses to endorse her foul bigotry, she’s accusing them of being “kapos” — Jewish collaborators with the Nazis: JEWISH SURRENDER: LA JEWISH FEDERATION SUBMITS TO HAMAS-LINKED MUSLIM GROUPS, CANCELS GELLER EVENT!!!!! – Atlas Shrugs

If you’re in LA, come to the Jewish Federation at 6505 Wilshire Boulevard at 11AM. We will be protesting this craven capitulation of the Jewish Federation to Islamic supremacist Jew-haters.

In a jaw-dropping act of cowardice and submission, LA Federation is not allowing ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) to hold the event where I was scheduled to speak this morning.

Jewish leadership is on the trains and thinks we will go quietly. This is tragic. Imagine, without so much as firing a shot, they’re caving in to a Hamas front group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Hamas’s fundamental goal is the annihilation of Israel.

This mirrors Nazi Party Representatives attending a 1933 Berlin Jewish Community charity drive gathering — back on December 20, 1933, three thousand Jews attended the first official Jewish gathering in which uniformed Nazis participated. The mass meeting was arranged by the Berlin Jewish community to open the special campaign for winter relief. And we know how that worked out.

Is it any wonder that the American Jewish left has become a problem for Israel? Who are these people? What is their role? What is their mission? What’s the point of Jewish lay leadership if they submit before their executioners? Shame on our cowardly leadership for throwing one of our own under the bus. We expect that from kapos, not from proud Jews who should hold the freedom of speech as a fundamental Jewish value.

Proud Jews and lovers and free speech will be protesting outside the LA Jewish Federation building at 11 am, and another venue will be announced shortly.

Geller has published the phone number of the Jewish Federation and the names of their board members and officials, urging her bigoted followers to harass and pressure them to reverse the decision.

Here’s the contact page for the organization — I’ll be sending them a note of congratulations to let them know they’re doing the right thing. Please join me and call or write a note of support, so they don’t get the false impression that the bigots are in the majority.

    Bone – yes, look further (if your uncertainty is genuine) for any *normal* objections to specific Muslim groups or individuals should be fully compatible with thinking Pamela Geller a complete wingnut. Hope not Hate, for example, posts against Islamist extremists (there’s a link to it on this page)as part of a more general anti-extremist remit which lays a particular emphasis, in fact, on anti Muslim bigotry.

    Pamela Geller on WND

    Last Wednesday, at my website, I rightly called for a jihadist mosque in Miami to be demolished because it was a hub of terror activity. That mosque should be closed. It is a threat to national security. It was a meeting place for jihadists and Islamic extremists. The Pakistani imam of the mosque, Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan, was indicted in south Florida last year for providing material support to the Pakistani Taliban. He was the ringleader of a jihadist cell that was sending huge sums to terror organizations that had orchestrated attacks on American targets.

    Is this why she is called a islamophobe!?!?!?!?

  • Sarah Brown

    But, following on from MIT MD/PHD’s comment, I think it is surely inaccurate to claim, as Geller does, that she was not welcome because she is a Zionist.

  • MIT_MD/PhD

    I mentioned before I think, that I went to high school with Spamela Geller and my parents’ home town is next door to hers. Than she was with me at Hofstra University as well. But she never graduated. But, I tell ya’, she is a vile one. Typical neurotic, greedy, power-hungry, extremely selfish woman – the kind of cheerleader type, villainous girl you see in a B grade Hollywood movie. And there are quite a few in the town that she comes from, the Hewlett Harbor. Maybe rabid love of Israel does that??

  • Sarah Brown

    Pamela Geller reminds me of one of the manifestations of Lilith in ‘Supernatural’. (Apologies to those of you who are not devotees of this show!)

    More seriously – Jai – yes, someone linked to that on Twitter so I read it earlier today and thought it was excellent.

    @ Hahaha:

    Well… normal is relative term and all, but I’m gonna say no. I mean, there’s no accounting for taste. At the very least, it implies to me that you have never seen a real woman before and have only vague ideas about what the female form is supposed to look like. Ol’ Pammy cakes falls somewhere between plasticky fake sex doll and overly made-up Ukrainian hooker on a bad night. But that’s just my opinion…

  • I think Sir David getsot it correctly, “I think the deluded one is putting on a brave face….”

    Arizona Governor Jane Brewer did the same thing yesterday after the Supreme Court struct down much of Arizona’s SB-1070 law, and today she she being referred to as Governor Denial.

  • Hahaha

    I am attracted to Pamela Geller. Am I normal ?

    Ilisha & Garibaldi,

    The Huffington Post has published a brilliant article about this incident and the broader problems:

    You may wish to cross-publish the HuffPost article here on Loonwatch. It’s definitely worth reading anyway.

  • @Ilisha

    You’re right, its not a good idea to trust her too much. She maybe just gloating because her followers got some of them to say we’re sorry. However, I am a bit worried now.

  • Sir David

    Reschedule for 30th Feb that’s my advice 🙂
    I think the deluded one is putting on a brave face for Both her equally deluded readers

    Sir David

  • corey

    here is a video I am watching now on her rejection from the jewish federation of la and if your ears start to bleed a. I apoplgize, and b. that is normal whenever listening to her.

  • @Sarah Brown

    I hope you’re correct and its just them apologizing to angry Geller fans and that they won’t reschedule her.

  • Sarah Brown

    I mean ‘find themselves apologising’. Here’s a quote suggesting that the objection to Geller was genuine and robust.

    “We said, ‘we will pay for additional security so there will be no problems,’” Morton Klein, President of the ZOA, told The Algemeiner. “They rejected that, saying ‘we’re not going to let Pam Geller or any of your people in the building”
