Who You Cannot Criticize
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
“If you want to know who rules over you, find out who you cannot criticize.”
Those words from Pamela Geller, who hosted free speech event in Texas where two terrorists were killed. At issue was a political cartoon contest which featured drawings of Muhammad.
Geller pointed out:
“Cartoons are political critique. It’s a cartoon. Is that what we want to outlaw? We want to outlaw humor? We want to outlaw comedy? If you want to know who rules over you, find out who you cannot criticize.”
Geller added, “I will continue to speak in defense of freedom until the day I die…It’s not even a choice,” she said. “It’s a calling.” She plans to host more events like this, only next time she’ll be wearing a bulletproof vest.
