San Fran Media Attacks Pamela Geller over New Anti-Jihad Bus Ads
by Warner Todd Huston
Pamela Geller and the American Freedom Defense Initiative have launched a new series of bus ads, this time in San Francisco, California, and the results in the media are typical of the distortions constantly thrown at Geller and her ad campaigns.
Without allowing for a response, the San Francisco Examiner, for instance, gave the space to attack Geller to one Nathan Lean, editor in-chief of Aslan Media, a left-wing, progressive site dedicated to pushing Muslim issues. Aslan is also heavily influenced by Iran and its Mullahs.
In his March 20 piece, Lean claimed that Geller and partner Robert Spencer "desire to ignite a culture war along faith lines" and equated the pair to Osama bin Laden because both considered themselves "freedom fighters." Lean also said that Geller-Spencer are supporters of the violence in Britain perpetrated by some members of the English Defense League and that the advertisement campaign is "destroying" the cause of liberty.
