[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]To listen to many in the mainstream media, one would think that we are no longer living in America. After two Muslim terrorists from Phoenix tried to storm the ‘Draw Muhammad’ contest, which was being held in Garland, Texas, with AK-47s in an attempt to kill participants, before they were killed by a Garland police officer, many in the media placed blame not on the terrorists or on ISIS, who claimed responsibility for the attacks. Instead, they blamed the event organizer, Pamela Geller, saying that she was asking for it by holding such a ‘provocative’ event.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]These attacks on Geller came not only from the leftstream media. Both Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and Martha MacCallum argued that Geller was in the wrong for holding such an event that would provoke the terrorists to kill. Never mind that they need no provocation, they still held Geller to a higher standard than the terrorists. Some outright said that her free speech in this regard should be limited. Others, like MacCallum, claimed they were not trying to limit Geller’s free speech while simultaneously making statements or suggestions that would limit her free speech.
The Associated Press (AP) happily joined in on the chorus in an even more sleazy and disgusting way.
In a tweet posted on Thursday, the AP sent out a message incredibly misleading that, whether purposefully or not, lamented the deaths of the two terrorists.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Notice they used a picture of Geller smiling a big smile. Yeah, exactly what message were they trying to send with that? They also failed to mention that the two dead were the Muslim terrorists. Perhaps they see no difference in these jihadis dying versus innocent Americans. Hours later, the AP sent out a second tweet in a attempt to clarify their earlier tweet. It was no better and, again, they used a picture of Geller smiling from ear to ear.
The Twitterverse responded calling the AP out for their egregious, disgusting, and twisted accusation.
Yeah, not a slanted headline. RT @AP: Pamela Geller says she has no regrets about Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that ended in 2 deaths
