Stockholm, 8/4/12: US Islamophobes, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller proudly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with co-founder and EDL thug, Stephen Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson.
Did you see the warriors and defenders of Western Civilization, dressed up in their super hero costumes, marching down Stockholm streets, saving Westerners from the pillaging Eurabic Mooslims?
No you say? Well, it’s not your fault. The grandiosely titled “First Worldwide Counter-Jihad Action” day demonstration can be counted as another abysmal failure in a long list of failures for the trans-Atlantic Islamophobia movement. When it comes to demonstrations, the anti-Fascists and anti-Racist groups generally outnumber these hate-mongers 10-1.
It’s worth noting that this so-called “First Counter-Jihad Action” demo really wasn’t the first “action” as Islamophobes billed it, that title can likely go to their ideological kin and fellow “counter-Jihad” Crusader, the terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.
The demonstration was put together by Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Anders Gravers, the EDL, the local SDL and other affiliate organizations, and drew, according to our Swedish sources, roughly 50 demonstrators, though Reuteurs gave a favorable estimate of under 200.
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Stockholm rally by European and U.S. far-right groups seeking to create a global “counter-jihad” movement attracted fewer than 200 people on Saturday who were outnumbered by anti-racist protesters.
Personally I believe the real motive of this counter-jihad demo must have been an opportunity for the Islamophobes to vacation in Stockholm, which is very nice this time of the year.
Swedish Loonwatcher, Anton Widebäck Ullerstam was at the event and sent us this photo of the so-called “counter-jihadists” demo, noting that amongst the Islamophobic demonstrators in this picture are included cameramen and journalists:
Anton, for his part couldn’t contain his laughter, exclaiming further,
Those who protested against the “counter-jihad movement” on their “biggest event this year” were about 1000 people. How many did Spencer, Geller and Robinson manage to gather from all over the world (as they intended)? Hehe…take a look (at the above picture)
As Anton mentioned, anti-Fascist counter-protesters far outnumbered the Islamophobes:
The message of many of the counter-protesters was “heart against hate,” with a few also flipping the bird at Islamophobes:
Of course, such a paltry show of “force” on behalf of the “counter-jihadists” has to be spun positively; as the m.o. goes with Islamophobes, never concede failure, blame someone else. The task for this spin job was left to the queen bee of hyperbolic verbal diarrhea, Pamela Geller, who wrote yesterday,
Today heralded the dawning of a new era of cooperation between pro-freedom groups in Europe, the United States, Australia and elsewhere.
This has been a pretty lengthy “dawn.” We’ve been witnessing claims of a “new era” for quite some time now, and clearly such cooperation between hate groups is already extensive.
Geller, desperate to spin anything into a sensational conspiracy transformed a “firecracker” into a possible “bomb,” writing,
police at one point found a suspicious package from the Leftists, and examined it out of concern that it was a bomb. It turned out to be a large firecracker
Imagine her disappointment!
Geller, gives her reason for why the numbers were so low,
First of all, we were “outnumbered” because we had to conduct our rally surrounded by police vans and police in riot gear…Many people told us they were afraid to come, or they’d get fired if they came. Some told us afterward that they wanted to come but couldn’t get through the leftist hooligans and the police.
Pathetic, isn’t it? It’s the police’s fault, seemingly the protection they provided the “freedom defenders” wasn’t good enough because too many “counter-jihadists” were “afraid,” and oh yeah, don’t forget that the “leftists” are at fault too! It’s a shock anyone made it through to this “world-wide counter-jihad action” demo the way Geller spins events!
Let’s not let the Islamophobes steal the spotlight however, because yesterday rationality, freedom and respect for the “other” won out over the bigotry, thuggery and intimidation of the EDL, SDL, SIOE, Geller and Spencer.
Thank you to all those who peacefully and forcefully protested against the Islamophobia movement’s “demonstration” of hate! It is through your vigilance, your peaceful yet jubilant assembly countering hate that the light of truth will always expose the hate-mongerers dark schemes.
