Anti-Muslim crusader Pamela Geller is the type of activist who has never met an anti-Obama conspiracy theory she doesn’t like. In an appearance last week on VCY America’s Crosstalk radio program, Geller pulled out all the stops, suggesting that President Obama didn’t really want to kill Osama bin Laden, and “doesn’t respect or even like our armed forces.” She even claimed that fact that the president’s staff screens questioners at events shows that he is “obviously incompetent” and the “quintessential affirmative action project.” Geller also looked abroad, entertaining the idea that Prince Charles may be a secret Muslim.
Geller was seemingly put in a tough spot during the call-in portion of the show, when a caller asked why the president had Osama bin Laden killed “if he’s for jihad or whatever you were referring to it.” But Geller was ready with a response, explaining that Obama had no choice but to kill bin Laden, albeit reluctantly, because “there was no getting around” it.
In fact, she said, Obama showed his sympathies by waiting “ten months” to raid bin Laden’s compound and refusing to release pictures of bin Laden’s corpse so that the al Qaeda leader would not be “humiliated.” When the news of bin Laden’s death first broke, Geller predicted that the president might get “choked up” in sorrow.
Another caller told Geller that he had read that Prince Charles has “apostatized from Christianity and embraced Islam.” Geller responded that while she doesn’t “know that to be true,” she does “know that he has taken very pro-Islamic views.” She then took the opportunity to explain yet again that it doesn’t matter if President Obama is a “secret Muslim” or not because he acts like one. He “favors Islam over all other religions,” she said, and “never goes to church.”
Finally, a caller asked Geller why people asking the president questions at events are screened by his staff members. “This is not a smart man,” she responded. “This is the quintessential affirmative action project.”
