Pamela Geller is vile

Previously I knew Pamela Geller as a "creeping Sharia" proponent, the kind of person who makes a living off making Americans as afraid of Muslims as possible to the point of encouraging us to refuse them the rights we would ordinarily recognize as existing for any American; for any human. She is that, but her reaction to the Fluke/Limbaugh matter shows that she is a female misogynist as well, past the ranks of Ann Coulter. There's a special category of political commentator that should place them beyond consideration by anyone who strives to be rational. This category I called "unhinged," and Limbaugh and Coulter have dwelt in it for a very long time. Now, Geller makes me wonder if another category is needed for the super extra unhinged, the kind who might need to be institutionalized but instead are treated as a relevant political voice by...well, some. It's hard to tell how many. 

Exhibit A:
A 30-year-old poses as a 23-year-old, chooses a Catholic University to attend at $65,000 per year, and cannot afford ALL the birth control pills she needs... so she wants the US taxpayers to pay for her rampant sexual activity. By all accounts she is banging it five times a day. She sounds more like a prostitute to me. She must have an gyno bill to choke a horse (pun intended). Calling this whore a slut was a softball.
Exhibit B:
I have had it up to here with Fluke's vagina. Seriously. Clearly she's a plant. I don't have to exalt or honor women who debase and lower themselves to meat status. I will not honor this pig. I will not teach children to debase themselves. I will not teach children that this is "empowerment." 
I explain it to young girls this way. Go into any Wal-Mart or Target. There are hundreds of black handbags for sale in bins, hung on display walls, all cheap or moderately priced, and they can't give them away. 
Now  go into Hermes. There is one black, gorgeous, impossible to get, crocodile Birkin bag. There are waiting lists for this bag. No one can get that bag. It costs a fortune and still everyone wants that bag. 
Be that bag. 
I despise the women's movement. I despise what they have done to women (and men). Just look at Fluke. She is a full-fledged activist and an embarrasment [sic] to decent young women. 
Note: Sandra Fluke is not the one who made this about her sex life. Sandra Fluke did not make any mention of her sexual activity, and it wouldn't matter if she had. In no way did Fluke pretend to be anything other than what she is, and it's not her fault if conservative commentators made assumptions which proven to be erroneous. And Sandra Fluke is not the one comparing women to merchandise.

Women aren't an ideological group. We are a biological/cultural one, so there's no sense in which the behavior of one woman should be considered an embarrassment to the rest of us. But if one should be considered such, it doesn't seem like Fluke is that woman.

  1. What I find astonishing is that she gets invited to speak on a major television network where she is treated as if her opinions are respectable.
