Facebook bans Pam Geller, removes ‘Stop Islamization’ group in wake of Orlando attack

FacebookOn Sunday, Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and author of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America, said Facebook took down her group page, Stop Islamization of America, and banned her from posting for 30 days.

The reason?  She dared to post about the Islamic terror attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

According to Geller, this was the post that got her in trouble with the speech minders at the social media giant:

The White House fails to mention Islam,  jihad or the call for slaughter of gays in Islam. Instead, Obama is importing these savages by the thousands.

I am sure we will get warnings of “islamophobia” and “backlashophobia.” Hamas-CAIR has called a press conference, and the leader of the Islamic Society of Central Florida is already at a press conference in Orlando. Islamic supremacist groups use these monstrous acts of carnage and murder to proselytize for Islam and condemn those of us who oppose jihad slaughter and sharia. It is gruesome how these Muslim groups exploit the bloodshed.

Facebook has enormous power and their fascist sharia-compliant policies on free speech in the wake of unfathomable slaughter. Every freedom lover should be outraged —

Geller FacebookFacebook later relented and restored the page, but Geller told me she is still blocked from posting for 30 days.

(In the interest of full disclosure, Geller has endorsed a book that I have written, along with Adina Kutnicki, an investigative journalist based in Israel for the last eight years, that explores how Facebook enables militant Islamic jihad.  That book is set to be published this fall.)

Geller posted the email she received informing her that her page had been restored.

“A member of our team accidentally removed something you posted on Facebook. This was a mistake, and we sincerely apologize for this error. We’ve since restored the content, and you should now be able to see it,” Facebook said.

An accident?  Yeah, right…
