Scrub Thoroughly After Viewing
by Geraldo Rivera | May 07, 2015
In the Greenroom at Fox News the beefed up security caught my eye. Curious as to which high-profile leader demanded the additional vigilance I was disappointed to see Pamela Geller in my shop. She is the fiery provocateur who runs the anti-Muslim hate group which was presenting a noxious Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest Sunday night that attracted two terrorists who staged a violent attack. The attack was repulsed, both extremists were deservedly shot dead by a traffic cop, but a hero security guard was wounded.
Over my five decade career, I have met all kinds of people, some with hateful ideas. Ms. Geller most reminds me of the hatemonger’s from the Aryan Nation, the Neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. Like those other racist supremacists, she has the right to voice her hateful ideas, but don't pretend it’s about free speech. It’s about insulting, taunting, inciting and dividing Americans. Sometimes it makes great television, as long as you shower afterward.
