On Sunday night in Garland, Texas, two avowed Muslim gunmen, at the behest of ISIS (as ISIS is claiming), attempted to kill as many people as possible at the “Draw Muhammad” art contest held at the Curtis Culwell Center. The center is owned by the Garland Independent School District, which took a huge risk in hosting the event. I would suggest the risk was worth the exposure.
In response, one Garland Police Department traffic officer shot both gunmen dead with his issue Glock .45 semi-automatic pistol. A security guard was shot in the leg and was subsequently discharged from the hospital fairly rapidly.
Jihadis 0, Garland PD 2.
Kudos to Garland PD for their response and caretaking of the event.
This “contest” was held at the behest of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, of which Pamela Geller is president. Pamela Geller has a blog entitled Atlas Shrugs, which she has written for a number of years. She is considered by some to be a hate monger, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (a hotbed of Leftists in any event) classifies her AFDI as an anti-Muslim hate group. PayPal has branded her blog a “hate site.”
Pamela Geller is also the executive in charge of the Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA), which was instrumental in physically halting the planned Muslim “community center” to be built within short sight of 9/11’s ground zero in New York City. This was an attempt, by Islam, to show the rest of the world how powerful it is, bringing down the Twin Towers and erecting a monument to Muslims adjacent.
Though things came out relatively well in Garland — who can fail to enjoy the schadenfreude inherent in sending two Jihadis to their virginal rewards — Geller was resultingly excoriated throughout the media and the nation for daring to hold the event at all.
She insists it’s about the First Amendment.
Many, in response, say she needlessly “poked the bear” and should be removed from public view, at the very least.
Others, like ISIS, have now indicated Pamela Geller is on their assassination list. I’d submit Geller is not shocked to read or hear of this.
Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem posted:
To our brothers and sisters fighting for the Sake of Allah, we make dua for you and ask Allah to guide your bullets, terrify your enemies, and establish you in the Land. As our noble brother in the Phillipines said in his bayah, “This is the Golden Era, everyone who believes… is running for Shaheed”.
The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was the khanzeer Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter. This will heal the hearts of our brothers and disperse the ones behind her. To those who protect her: this will be your only warning of housing this woman and her circus show. Everyone who houses her events, gives her a platform to spill her filth are legitimate targets. We have been watching closely who was present at this event and the shooter of our brothers. We knew that the target was protected. Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the Sake of Allah.
We have 71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack any target we desire. Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, We are increasing in number bithnillah. Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan. The disbelievers who shot our brothers think that you killed someone untrained, nay, they gave you their bodies in plain view because we were watching.
The next six months will be interesting, To our Amir Al Mu’mineen make dua for us and continue your reign, May Allah enoble your face.
To those Death Bastards I respond: may Allah shite on your face. And by the way, “wiliyah” means an authority. Islam intends to take over the United States. It intends to become the sole authority in the United States. Uber alles.
Please understand: the wonderful thing about Islam is that it tells you precisely what it wants to do and how it means to do it. You have to simply take them at their word. Americans are stupid enough not to get the message. I believe Geller understands the message. Last time I checked, Geller isn’t packing. She isn’t looking for people to kill.
ISIS says they have 71 soldiers in 15 of our states already. Frankly, I don’t doubt it; all they’d have had to do is get their ankles slightly moist, as our southern border — courtesy of Mr Obama — is wide open.
That said, where is it that I happen to stand? A number of people have asked, via phone calls and texts and Twitter and emails. They have said: “where is your post about Garland?”
So: here it is.
For me, it’s pretty simple. I stand for the First Amendment. And I stand for the Second Amendment as, without it, there would be and will be no First Amendment.
As an aside, that is why Leftists are doing their very level best to gut the Second Amendment, by attacking private firearm and ammunition ownership on every level, non-stop.
People — Westerners — GOWPs — say we must take the “high ground” with regard to Islam and the kid-gloved handling of same.
I say: Muslims, Islamists, respect nothing but strength and iron will. Anything less invites attack, which is why Islam attacked Bill Clinton and attacked America again under Bush. Because there was no significant response. Clinton had the opportunity to eliminate OBL and passed. Islam learned: Paper Tiger. Islam isn’t stupid.
Does no one realize that Islam was created by men, is lorded by men, commanded by men, directed by men, and barbaric men respect nothing but raw, naked strength? Women mean little in Islam; they are chattel. Islam had its birth in the Middle East, in a challenging physical environment where only the strong survived. Islam had its birth in tribes, in nomads, in bedouins. Western culture isn’t thinking like Muslims; it’s thinking like GOWPs who wish to sit down at an ebon table and have a quiet tea over logical issues.
That’s not how Islam thinks.
Americans think differently. As well they should.
Any American is free to draw any damned thing they want at any time and in any venue. That is why we exist as a nation, why our forebears fought in WWII, and why this nation was founded. Our precious American flag is stepped on and burned. But do we shoot those persons in the head? Are we to be more offended by persons who draw cartoons than those who burn our flag? Nobody tells us what we can draw. Nobody tells us what we can say. We are Americans.
To me, the ability to conduct Free Speech, anywhere, at any time, in these United States, is paramount.
The First Amendment exists not to protect pablum speech, milquetoast speech, convivial speech. It exists to protect challenging speech. The protection of the First Amendment was hard-fought, and it needs to protected by every fiber of our collective bodies.
People accuse: Pamela Geller was trying to be provocative. She was trying to make a point.
I readily admit: yes she was.
She makes her point here:
Even Chris Cuomo, of all people, took the challenge:
In a discussion on the Mohammed Art Exhibit and Contest, Cuomo said to CNN Political Commentator Marc Lamont Hill, “Here’s the criticism on your side is that the left is afraid of saying anything offensive about Islam. You don’t feel like that about Christianity. You attack the Catholic Church all the time.”
Hill responded that this is “different,” because “when you have a critique of the Catholic Church, you say ‘the Catholic Church is x’, that’s a critical analysis. If you say ‘Islam has some issues with patriarch or Islam has some issues with sexuality,’ I think that’s also appropriate. But drawing the Prophet Mohammed for the sole purpose of violating something that is a principle –”
Cuomo interjected, “but you wouldn’t punish somebody for Piss Christ, you wouldn’t do it, but you won’t put, on the media pictures of Mohammed because you don’t want to upset Islam, but you’ll put pictures of Piss Christ.”
Here’s the difference between Christianity and Islam: Christians won’t kill you for the slightest perceived offense.
I stand with Pamela Geller.
And those who fired the killing shots should be provided with community service awards and a case of 1,000 rounds of their favorite caliber.
Let’s see: Muslim Fucktards 0, Texans 2. Works for me.

Two gunmen ‘carrying explosives’ attack anti-Muslim art contest in Texas: Suspects dead and security guard wounded at ‘draw Muhammad’ event that offered $10k prizeby Wills Robinson
- Two suspects were gunned down after shooting the guard in the leg outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland
- Building and surrounding area was placed on lockdown by a SWAT team with around 100 attendees still inside
- Reports suggest the pair were carrying explosives at the time, and another two bombs were discovered nearby
- The American Freedom Defense Initiative event offered a $10,000 prize for the best caricature of the prophet
- Involved a keynote speech from far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who has linked the Koran to terrorism
Two armed suspects believed to be carrying explosives have been shot dead after opening fire outside an anti-Muslim art exhibition in Dallas.
The pair were gunned down after shooting a security guard in the leg outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas, during a ‘family event’ where caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad were being displayed.
The building and surrounding area was placed on lockdown by a SWAT team with around 100 attendees still inside after multiple gunshots were heard.
Two suspects pulled up in a vehicle with with explosives, before getting out and firing at the officer, identified in local reports as Bruce Joiner. They were then killed by Garland Police officers.
Mr Joiner was taken to hospital in a stable condition and is expected to survive.
The attack unfolded shortly after Dutch member of parliament and leader of the far-right Party for Freedom, Geert Wilders, had delivered his keynote speech.
At this point there is little detail known specifically about the Garland reaction, but to those officers who responded I say: you are a credit to law enforcement.
The event was set up by the American Freedom Defense Initiative and had been described by opponents as an attack on Islam. The controversial group booked the center a little more than a week after Islamic militants in France killed 12 people at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Despite criticism from residents, the organizers believed they were exercising their freedom of expression.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the contest, which was offering a top prize of $10,000, had received about 350 entries depicting Muhammad – even though visual representation of the prophet is deemed extremely offensive by Muslims.
Of course, there are those who will rattle their jaws — Conservatives and well as Leftists — and say: “why would you want to even do this, considering the temper of the times and Islam?”
My response? Because the First Amendment of the United States exists to protect not milquetoast speech, not mealy-mouthed speech, but challenging speech of the first degree. Speech that requires protection and is taxing by its very nature.
Like the event in Garland.

Wonder no more, America, why your civilian law enforcement tends to “look” militarized when in fact they truly are not. An incident such as this.
Because, after all, when (not if) ISIS and/or other Muslim Fucktards slay your brother or your mother inside a mall, you’ll be whining and moaning about America’s cops not being sufficiently militarized. Why?
Because soldiers and the federal government minions are not First Responders. Real cops are.
Most federal officers are not real cops and couldn’t pretend to be, because they don’t know the first thing about working an area day-to-day and hour-to-hour. The FBI are not real cops; DHS “officers” aren’t real cops. The FBI is good for second-guessing real cops at their leisure, and licking the cock and balls of their local AUSA. The FBI have their place, of course, but not as first responders. The same with FEMA. In other words: the feds will not be saving you with immediacy.
Islam is a death cult. Ignorant people quantify it simply as a religion, but it is a political culture of death, depravity, clitorectomies, female genital mutilation, misogyny, goat penetration, pedophilia, ignorance, barbarity, violence and stupidity. The last thing attributed to Islam as practiced is peace — which is why I always say and have always said “Islam is as Islam does.”
With luck, I may have been able to convey to you, my stalwart readers, how I truly feel about Islam, though I have held some of my more strident thoughts back due to political correctness.
Because, if you cannot, Muslims are every bit as bad as those terrible Christians.
With one obvious exception: Christians won’t behead you if they disagree with you.
Answer: no, you cannot buy a cake for homosexuals at a Muslim bakery.
I know this comes as a terrible shock to you.
