Smear Media in Action: Eigil Söderin

I’ve written many times about how mainstream media reporters no longer try to maintain even the appearance of fairness, but approach those trying to resist the jihad and Islamic supremacism in the name of freedom and human rights as if the reporters’ job was to put us on trial and convict us before the world. Meanwhile, when they deal with Islamic supremacists such as the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf or Reza Aslan, they fawn all over them. A particularly egregious example of this is over at Atlas Shrugs today, where the Swedish “journalist,” Eigil Söderin, editor of ETC, www.etc.se, sent Pamela Geller a series of questions related to our Freedom March and the “First Worldwide Counter-Jihad Action in Stockholm on August 4.

Geller wrote: “I am running the interview unedited because it vividly illustrates the difference between my real aims and the box the mainstream media wants to put me in.” Indeed it does:

Eigil Söderin: What are you hoping will be the outcome of the gathering i [sic] Stockholm?

Pamela Geller: An international freedom alliance.

Eigil Söderin: Why are this meeting being held in Stockholm?

Pamela Geller: For the ease of the European groups attending, and to commemorate the jihad attack that was thwarted there a year ago.

Eigil Söderin: In your view, what sort of organisations poses the greatest threath [sic] to the western world?

Pamela Geller: Those that wish to deny freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights of women and non-Muslims in our societies.

Eigil Söderin: What is the main goals for the counter-jihad movement?

Pamela Geller: To defend the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights of women and non-Muslims.

Eigil Söderin: What are you planning to do with the large muslim population in Europe, many of whom have been living here for generations?

Pamela Geller: Ask them to obey Western laws and principles of human rights and reject the elements of Sharia that are supremacist, authoritarian, and deny many of those rights.

Eigil Söderin: Do you want them deported?

Pamela Geller: No.

Eigil Söderin: You have been called islamophobic, what is your response to that critique?

Pamela Geller: “Islamophobia” is a word invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in order to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with defending against Islamic jihad and Islamic supremacism.

Eigil Söderin: Your blog and Jihad watch [sic] were a great inspiration for Anders Behring Breivik (Spencer name appears mor than 50 times in the manifesto, Breiviks mnetions you blog in the manifesto). Do you support the ideas of Breivik?

Pamela Geller: Neither Spencer or I inspired Breivik any more than did Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Charles Darwin, John Locke and others he mentions in his manifesto. His manifesto is ideologically incoherent and very far from my ideas; he calls for alliance with Hamas and said at his trial that he was inspired by al-Qaeda. We did not inspire him and do not support his ideas.

This is the media’s attempt to smear and destroy those fighting for the preservation of our freedoms.

Eigil Söderin: Do you defend his actions?

Pamela Geller: No. I condemn his actions. His inspirations for these actions were Al Qaeda and Hamas. I have never called for violence but for legal defense of principles of freedom.

Eigil Söderin: On your blog you write about the massacre on Utöya, Norway, 22 july 2011. The blog post have been critizised.
I found the following quotes written by you:

”Utoya Island is a Communist/Socialist campground, and they clearly had a pro-Islamic agenda.”
”Glen Beck was not far off when he compared it to the Hitlerjugend or Young Pioneers. ”
“Note the faces which are more MIddle [sic] Eastern or mixed than pure Norwegian.”

What do you mean by these words?

Pamela Geller: I did not write that. Those are not my words. Look again. And that last sentence is not even in my blog post.

That was in an article I referred  by the “anti-Mullah” describing the anti-semitism in that camp You will have to ask him.   “ANOTHER LOOK AT THE NORWAY LABOR PARTY PALESTINIAN AFFILIATION”  posted by The Anti-Mullah

Eigil Söderin: Why do you make the point that some of the victims were not ”pure Norwegian”?

Pamela Geller: I did not make that point. It is not in my blog post. It was redacted from the excerpt.

What I said  was “The slaughter was horrific. What these kids were being taught and instructed to do was a different kind of grotesque. There is no justification for Breivik’s actions whatsoever. There is also no justification for Norway’s antisemitism and demonization of Israel.”

Eigil Söderin: Does it make the killings more justifiable in your view?

Pamela Geller: Your question is intellectually dishonest and monstrous. No.

Eigil Söderin: Why did you accuse the terror victims of anti-Semitism?

Pamela Geller: Because the camp taught anti-Semitism.

    This is the way all that are telling the truth are treated. I fear John Daniels book, 'The Coming: A True Story Of Horror' is our future.

    This is what the left has to do to win, lie. You see it every where, lies, lies, lies. Intellectually dishonest because their ideals cannot stand up to scrutiny.

    Robert Spencer screaming "slander" is like the wolf running through the town warning the townspeople that there is a boy coming. And when Mr. Söderin asks Ms. Geller about being the inspiration for Anders Breivik, she lies.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Yes and Mr. Spencer forgot to affirm that there is no god but allah and that muhammad is his prophet!

  • Don Kosloff

    What was the lie that she told?

    • Schlomotion

      The lie that she told, shysty car dealer that she is, was:

      "Neither Spencer [n]or I inspired Breivik any more than did Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Charles Darwin, John Locke and others he mentions in his manifesto."

      Even Bruce Bawer had the honesty and decency in the Wall Street Journal to admit that he unwittingly inspired that wackjob Breivik. Bawer did it correctly. He said that he unknowingly inspired Breivik who plagiarized pages of his commentary directly from Peder Jensen, but that Breivik was a madman who has done irreparable harm to the counter-jihadist movement by moving into the COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE realm of terrorist violence.

      Pamela Geller, by contrast is simply a shrill hustler and a liar who does the usual thing and tries to launder her dishonesty in the names of other people and hope that she doesn't stick out as much. The word Michelle McPhee likes to use for that kind of behavior is "sleazebag" behavior.

    One is forced to conclude Schlomotion is so named because his IQ only permits thinking in slow motion.. Miss Geller lies he claims, but provides no evidence to support his wild assertion. It was surely the boy who cried wolf who could not provide evidence for that which he claimed ? Perhaps the boy was a distant relaion of Schlomotion, or was it the wolf ? He accuses Robert Spencer of slander, but again provides no evidence to support his unsubstantiated claim.

    • Schlomotion

      Here's a good one: Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller say that they "Confront Unhinged Sukhail Khan" but Sukhail Khan exposes that Spencer refused to debate him unless he be paid $10,000 for the speaking engagement.

    Egil Sloberin, was he wearing a cheap suit and is he a law school dropout, it would be my guess
    by the impertinent questioning. As it is true with almost all of the left,they are X' d in the head, the
    people of the world must relearn how to frame thought and understand the ground of solid
    ideation, it has been destroyed in the propaganda institutions called schools and in this the left
    has done their damage. Dishonest communication is vile and one of the most insulting things I can
    think of. Dishonesty must be wiped out or it will be the epithet on mankinds common toombstone.
    Man was given Ten Commandments and without adhering to them civilization is horribly demented,
    and headed towards perdition…………………………………Willam
