Check out this pathetic and completely ad hoc attack on Pamela Geller, dressed up as a kinda “aw-shucks” epiphany that black U.S.-born converts to Islam are as natural as apple pie. Even more sinister is the promotion of the left’s lie that “jihad” is all about inner struggle and not holy war against the West and subjugation of infidels. I’m all for regular folks, regardless of religion or ethnicity, appearing in financial industry commercials. But when the New York Times cherry picks a spot that no one is talking about to attack those fighting for truth and protecting freedom of speech, you know there’s a larger agenda going on. The writer, Samuel G. Freedman, takes not one but two swings at Geller in what’s no more than a 750 word essay. Behold, once again, what’s so desperately wrong with the conventional thinking of today’s MSM. And it highlights as powerful as anything the ultimate stakes in the fight over the information battlespace.
