Pamela Geller to Host Mohammed Cartoon Contest

 

From Breitbart:

Geller Art Exhibit

Pamela Geller is planning a “Draw the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas in the same location as a Muslim group held a “Stand with the Prophet” conference in January. The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center, which is owned and operated by the Garland Independent School District.

Geller’s event comes on the wake of the Islamic terrorist attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo in January. Following the attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) scheduled the “Stand with the Prophet” conference at the public school district’s conference center. Geller, the President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scheduled a protest outside the event that was attended by approximately 2,000 people.

During the Free Speech Rally in Garland, Geller spoke with Breitbart Texas about her reaction to the large and loud crowd of protesters. She said that Muslims are trying to impose restrictions on free speech like they are doing in Paris. “Thousands of Americans said ‘no way!’”

“The media can smear us and the President can stand with them,” Geller said. “We the people are not having it. If there is any proof of that, it’s today. We dwarfed them.”

“If the Western media ran the Danish cartoons back when this Islamic supremacist movement first started gaining steam, the editorial staff of Charlie Hebdo would be alive today,” Geller stated in response to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas. “That said, the European press ran the Hebdo cartoons in the wake of that jihad slaughter. But the American press would not. The beacon of freedom, the shining light on a hill, is running scared. Well, that’s not who we are. The elites do not represent the people.”

We’re holding this exhibit and cartoon contest to show how insane the world has become — with people in the free world tiptoeing in terror around supremacist thugs who actually commit murder over cartoons. If we can’t stand up for the freedom of speech, we will lose it — and with it, free society.”

The art exhibit and contest will be held at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland on May 3rd.  ”This was the site of a Muslim conference denouncing ‘Islamophobia’ — an obscene stand for them to take after the Charlie Hebdo massacre – and our massive Free Speech Rally outside that event,” Geller wrote in a press release obtained by Breitbart Texas.

The contest will take submissions online and the winner will be announced at the event in Garland. The winning cartoonist will receive a $10,000 prize. The exhibit will feature images of Islam’s prophet in both historical and contemporary settings. There will also be a series of speeches by internationally renowned free-speech advocates.

Geller explained that the art exhibit is the next logical step following AFDI’s Free Speech Rally in Garland. “This event will stand for free speech and show that Americans will not be cowed by violent Islamic intimidation,” she stated. “That is a crucial stand to take as Islamic assaults on the freedom of speech, our most fundamental freedom, are growing more insistent.”

“Of course, this event will require massive security,” she assured potential attendees. “But this exhibit has to be staged. If we don’t show the jihadis that they will not frighten us into silence, the jihad against freedom will only grow more virulent.”

Of course, Ms. Geller is absolutely correct and leave it to her to stir the pot. With a $10,000 prize up for grabs, she can probably expect a great turn-out. Hopefully this goes smoothly and everyone remains safe. Maybe some of you guys in the area could do a drive by and let us know how it goes?

I’m not sure I’d agree with her that the Charlie Hebdo staff would be alive if the western media had run their cartoon – it seems to me the terrorists had it in for them from the beginning. Do you agree with her?

    Yes, the ‘elites’ are running scared. Have been ever since their mantra was, “Better red than dead.”

  2. Hardnox says:

    This should get interesting. The left and the muslims will be freaking out over it while at the same time be silent at every insult to Christians and Jews. Hypocrites!

    “This is Texas you fool, everybody has a gun “………oh, wait that’s a different movie

    I sure hope they have a large number of persons carrying at the event, because I think this wold be the perfect time for the Muzzies to try and pull something. I also hope that several of those people are off-site with high-power scoped long arms.

    This woman is stronger than dirt! She amazes me!

    Would they find a “Piss Mohammed” offensive ?

    Good one Clyde! A “piss Mohammed” – actually a representation of any of the so-called Christian “art” that’s been displayed would be ripe to duplicate as an Islamic version. You can bet that every visitor to that event who has a CHL (and tons of folks who don’t) will be armed, but it probably won’t be necessary – they’re too smart to do a head-on attack, but a timed bomb or something like that wouldn’t surprise me.
