Pamela Geller is someone I admire greatly. She's tough, smart, and as courageous as they come. Her website, Atlas Shrugs is one of the must read sites on the internet. Pamela is like a one woman army as she exposes radical Islam and the violence and death that comes with it.
Pamela has been the leading voice of opposition to the so-called Cordoba House Project, what I like to call the 9/11 Victory Mosque.
Students of history will tell you stories of the Islamic conquest of Cordoba, Spain, around 766 A.D., and how they took control of a Christian church and build a grand mosque in it's place, as a symbol of Islamic dominance worldwide. You might say they were rubbing the noses of the conquered in their victory.
The Muslim extremists want to build the Cordoba House on the hallowed ground of the 9/11 attacks, right at Ground Zero, as a sign they have conquered America.To rub our noses in 9/11.
Pamela Geller has taken up the fight and said: “Not on my watch pal!”
Right Wing News has chosen the Top 10 Conservatives who really made a difference in 2010. From their tribute to Pamela:
Pamela Geller: Pamela runs the pre-eminent anti-radical Islam website on the Internet Atlas Shrugs, she's in charge of Stop Islamization of America and she had a new book out, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America.
However, Pamela makes this list because she, more than any other person, was on point in the fight against the mosque at Ground Zero. Right from the beginning she was organizing protests and drawing attention to the project. Meanwhile, she was falsely slurred and attacked by the Left, the mainstream media, and apologists for radical Islam. That was simply because she refused to stand by and say nothing while a celebratory mosque was built in the shadow of the Twin Towers. If the Ground Zero Victory Mosque isn't ultimately built, no one will deserve more of the credit than Pamela Geller.
Back in October RWN's John Hawkins interviewed Pamela. If you haven't read it, please take the time to go here and do so.
Pamela is joined on by Sarah Palin on the list. They had this to say about their choice for the top slot:
Sarah Palin: It might be easier to ask: What has Sarah Palin not done this year? She was one of the most effective voices in the fight against Obamacare, she became a popular Fox News contributor, she just released a new book, she has her own TV show Sarah Palin's Alaska, and she was a force of nature in the 2010 elections where she raised millions, swung primaries with her endorsements, and did more to get women candidates elected this cycle than anyone else in history. Say what you want about Sarah Palin, but nobody in American politics had a bigger and better year than she did in 2010.
We are proud to join Right Wing News in saluting Pamela Geller, one of America's true patriots and a staunch defender of Liberty and Freedom.
