[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]After learning that free-speech advocate Pamela Geller was a planned target of a beheading by an Islamic terrorist killed by Boston police on Tuesday, CNN’s Erin Burnett interviewed Geller with a line of questioning so absurd that it would be comical if the topic weren’t so serious and the stakes weren’t so high.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Geller, who heads AFDI, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, and sponsored the “Draw Muhammad Cartoon Contest” in Garland, Texas, was asked by Islamist-sympathizer Burnett if she somehow “relished” at being the target of a Muslim beheading, insinuating that she was the guilty party for not kneeling to Sharia Law’s blasphemy laws.
“Do you on some level relish being the target of these attacks,” Burnett asked Geller.
According the Dictionary.com, “relish” is defined as “liking or enjoyment of the taste of something — pleasurable appreciation of anything; liking.”
“Relish for being the target?” Geller shot back. “Who self-promotes to get killed?” she asked Burnett.
Geller went on to blast the communist front group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, quoted by Burnett as placing Geller on their “hate list,” for promoting freedom of speech.
“The Southern Poverty Law Center? Really, Erin? Since When? Who designated them the arbiter of anything,” Geller asked. “They’re an uber-left group. They don’t track jihadist groups.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Later in the interview, Geller smacked down the CNN talking head, asking, “Why do you use the Southern Poverty Law Center, a notorious communist group, to slime and smear me?”
“I’m the hunted one,” Geller had to remind a confused Burnett.
