This is What You Can Expect From a Mitt Romney Presidency: Islamophobia

16 October 2012 Loonwatch.com 25 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

It’s going to be Islamophobia on crack if Mitt Romney wins (thanks for all who sent in tips):

This is What You Can Expect From a Mitt Romney Presidency: Islamophobia

Pamela Geller, for all those who’ve forgotten is the looniest blogger ever. Everything out of her mouth competes with everything she has said in the past to be more over-the-top, racist, hateful, and Islamophobic.

Just take look at a sampling of her positions over the past three years:

Pamela Geller calls for the destruction of the Golden Dome;  Obama is a Mooslim, Jihadist, Pimp, anti-Semite who is aiding the Iranian Nuclear program;  Sharia Coke is taking over the world, it is defamation of Judaism and Christianity for Islam to include Moses and Jesus as Prophets of Islam;  Pamela Geller is a Holocaust Revisionist who claims that Hitler and the Nazis adopted Jihad;  Not only is Obama a secret Muslim, but according to Pamela Geller,  “Obama is bringing his jihad to Illinois…Obama’s treachery is breathtaking;  Pamela Geller calls for the nuking of Mecca, Medina, and Tehran;  Pamela Geller promotes a genocidal videoPamela Geller shows sympathy towards white supremacist;  Screenshot of Pamela Geller’s post on June 25th wherein she posted a video claiming that Muslims engage in bestiality;  Pamela Geller left speechless when called out for drawing a picture of the Prophet Muhammad with a pig’s face.

More serious than Geller posing in a pic with Mitt Romney is the insidious nature of Romney’s ties with the Islamophobia movement. Romney’s senior foreign policy adviser is none other than former Bush era UN Ambassador John Bolton.

One can only hope that in tonight’s debate the moderator questions Romney about his ties to radicals and inclusion of Islamophobes like John bolton on his staff. Gus from Little Green Footballs has compiled an incisive compilation of the ties between Bolton and Geller.:

Exhibit C: Mitt Romney Campaign Senior Foreign Policy Adviser John Bolton and Pamela Geller

Romney foreign policy adviser with hate group leader Pamela Geller in numerous meetings.

About John Bolton:

John Robert Bolton (born November 20, 1948) is an American lawyer and diplomat who has served in several Republican administrations. Appointed on a recess appointment, he served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 until December 2006. He resigned in December 2006, when the recess appointment would have otherwise ended, because he was unlikely to win senate confirmation.

John Bolton and Mitt Romney

Bolton is currently a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), frequent op-ed contributor to the Wall Street Journal and the National Review, Fox News Channel commentator, foreign policy adviser to 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and of counsel to the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, in their Washington D.C. office…

The reader should be reminded of the connection between Anders Breivik and Pamela Geller. There is also a connection between Anders Brevik and Robert Spencer.Tommy Robinson’s hooliganism and right-wing extremism is notorious and too extensive to cover here. You can however find many articles covering his organization, the English Defence League, which has been covered extensively at LGF including his connection to Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.

There is no vast conspiracy at play here. However, it should be disturbing enough that the senior foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney, John Bolton, has the ear of anti-Islam extremist, Pamela Geller. Her connection with the EDL makes this plainly obvious. This my friends is the post-modern conservative movement, where we find odious characters in the Republican big tent whose lives are intertwined; in this case from Mitt Romney to Pamela Geller; Tommy Robinson (EDL), Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller; and most importantly, the close relationship of John Bolton and Pamela Geller.

  1. Knew this anyway..not suprised

  2. Where is Pamela Geller from, anyway? She must have ties, being Jewish–as she looks Middle Eastern, which also makes her look completely out of touch with her own heritage…a one woman genocide. Sad, really.

  3. Lies just like all the rest of the political team…They are all puppets on strings..

  4. im in total agreement

  5. A lot of islamophobes are from Mideast, or have relatives who fled muslim govs. Muslims do not realize what a bad rep they have earned for themselves.

  6. “I will deepen our critical cooperation with our partners in the Gulf.” Mitt Romney

  7. I was listening to an interview with Romney’s foreign advisor on NPR. Obama is being blamed for not having a sixth sense not predicting the attack on US embassy in Libya. My question to Romney is, “do you blame Bush for not knowing about the attack on US, if yes, did he vote for Bush’s second term?” The only way they would be satisfied if Obama would have sent out troops or planes to kill thousands innocents without knowing who was behind the attack.

  8. Fortunately for O the R’s are in disarray and he will probably win. The Dems put up Kerry, the public did not trust him.

    The Dems have a way of putting up glamorous senators for prez. The public will trust a governor over a senator.

  9. Romney sucks

  10. The whole situation is summed up very well in articles over at pakistantoday. The clean handed people, theocratically minded, SUPPORT the TALIBAN and that is what keeps them going.

    This is what the islamophobes are saying.

    At some point muslims will figure out that the Taliban is a bad org. Their own little Malalas will be shot in the face perhaps.

  11. I use to think that Muslims were the worst things in the world untill I had a dream.I realize that the problem was me.most muslims are not as fortunate as us.they were born into islam ,not by choice and was not exposed to the different religions so that they can make an intelligent choice.As LONG as they are living in a muslim country they cannot change they religion because it is death .Christians should declare war on muslims because they are the only ones who have the ammunition. they should open fire with heavey artillary of love and bomb them with patience and kindness.

  12. raises many future possibilities,,

  13. @carlton batson

    I’m curious to know what you have to say about the millions of other Muslim converts from the states and countries outside of the Islamic world?

    The problem isn’t Islam or the Qur’an. They are both sufficient enough in turning Muslim’s around. With that said, the problem is Muslims who are ignorant NOT of other religions, but of their OWN religion. If they follow their own religion, they will become a healthy nation and people again.

    14th century Arabia was a place filled with disgusting practices. The arabs didn’t even have a state! They were just a bunch of nomads that traded and lived seperated but amongst eachother in tribes. Islam is what brought them together and gave them their country; their dignity and honor back. It brought them through a golden age and helped western europe get out of the dark ages.

    So no, Islam and the Qur’an are not the issue.

  14. So, does that mean Obama has ties with terrorism because of Bill Ayers?

  15. nutters

  16. I don’t think Ayers dared to live under communism either.

  17. @Nura: That became particularly ironic when this horrible “Jew” called for banning Halal food on humanitarian grounds, apparently unaware that her logic would also lead to banning Kosher food. I think the best description of her is “mentally challenged New Yorker,” and let’s leave it at that.

  18. Geller is just the flip side of the muslim hatred for Jews. It does not look any better on her than it does on them, and just as crazy.

  19. JayC,

    your history lesson is confusing. islam was introduced to the arabian pennisula in the 7th century. so why why did it take them 700 years for “Islam is what brought them together and gave them their country”?
    “14th century Arabia was a place filled with disgusting practices. The arabs didn’t even have a state! They were just a bunch of nomads that traded and lived seperated but amongst eachother in tribes.” i thought it was the house of saud that created the nation of saudi arabia?

    “The problem isn’t Islam or the Qur’an”

    http://www.islam-qa.com/en/ref/43087/jihad

    have you read the koran? if not, then how do you know it isn’t the problem. if so what do you think about the opening of the 24th surah?

  20. The opening of the 24th Surah “Surah Al Noor”

    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful

    (This is) a chapter which We have revealed and made obligatory and in which We have revealed to clear communications that you may be mindful

    According to this statement Mike, it seems to me you are not mindful in the slightest. Its just seems to me like you are just trying to scare people with your “So called Islamic Knowledge” but you know nothing about Islam. I expect you probably only read the part that comes next..

    “(As for)the fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them (giving) a hundred stripe, and let not pity for them detain you in the matter of obedience to Allah…”

    And then you decided to use this as propaganda to poison the hearts of other people. Now before you start getting upset, which is probably the reason why you have mentioned this (despite it having no relevance to your point) I would like to say that before Islam came into power (after the Prophet’s death in 632) the Arabian world as you quite rightly mentioned had prostitution, slavery and high levels of crime. After, the Islamic rule, all of that stopped as it taught the people the importance of a woman

    “…but provide for them with it and clothe them and speak to them with words of appropriate kindness.” –Surah An-Nisa; ayah 5 (this verse is directed to men about their wives)

    “And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them, perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.” –Surah An-Nisa; part of ayah 19

    And regarding the lashing, let’s not forget that just under 200 years ago, adultery as illegal in the UK and in some parts of the U.S.A as well. The punishment for committing adultery then ranged from imprisonment to the death penalty.

    The Qur’an was revealed thousands of years ago! Have you ever though that maybe some of the things may not be relevant to this time period? So many Islamic countries do not follow the punishment of lashing now. (with the exception of Saudi Arabia) Even if they did, you cannot deny that crime is considerably low in Islamic countries. Why? Because people are actually afraid of the law. (People in Saudi Arabia leave their house doors unlocked and go out, and their houses remain intact and burglary is unlikely to occur.)

    Look at this quote from the Bible about divorce

    Mark 10:9 reads, “What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”

    Do you agree with that? Do you accept that divorce should not be allowed? Or would you say it is not relevant to this time period?

    Yes you would agree with the latter. So here is a good piece of advice for you. Do your research properly and preach the facts rather than pretending to know more than you claim. You really are a first class idiot.

  21. sana,

    “According to this statement Mike, it seems to me you are not mindful in the slightest.” mindful of ancient laws. you’re, right i’m not mindful in the slighest.
    “Its just seems to me like you are just trying to scare people with your “So called Islamic Knowledge” but you know nothing about Islam.” true i know very little.that is why i ask muslims.
    “I expect you probably only read the part that comes next..” no i read the entire surah.

    ““(As for)the fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them (giving) a hundred stripe, and let not pity for them detain you in the matter of obedience to Allah…””

    “And then you decided to use this as propaganda to poison the hearts of other people.” propagana, poison hearts. you’re funny. how is what is written in the “holy” koran propaganda? why would is poison someones heart. i thought it was allah who has sealed some people’s hearts? made them blind and deaf. they wonder around as if in a thunder storm. only seeing when lightning, well i’m sure you know the verses from the cow.
    “Now before you start getting upset,” lol.
    “which is probably the reason why you have mentioned this (despite it having no relevance to your point)” what? jayc said “The problem isn’t Islam or the Qur’an”. my pont is that the koran can be the problem.

    “I would like to say that before Islam came into power (after the Prophet’s death in 632) the Arabian world as you quite rightly mentioned had prostitution, slavery and high levels of crime. After, the Islamic rule, all of that stopped as it taught the people the importance of a woman” you forgot to mention the pagan arabs practice of female infanticide. but what? islam banned slavery? what koran are you reading?

    ““…but provide for them with it and clothe them and speak to them with words of appropriate kindness.” –Surah An-Nisa; ayah 5 (this verse is directed to men about their wives)” there are all sort of forwaord thinking verses in the koran. the problem is the backward thinking ones. muhammad is considered a great law giver for his time. but his time has past. time to move on.

    ““And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them, perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.” –Surah An-Nisa; part of ayah 19″ awesome.

    “And regarding the lashing, let’s not forget that just under 200 years ago, adultery as illegal in the UK and in some parts of the U.S.A as well. The punishment for committing adultery then ranged from imprisonment to the death penalty.” oh shit, we have had all sorts of bad laws in the west. we still do.

    “The Qur’an was revealed thousands of years ago!” not quite, but it ws a long time ago, 1400 years.
    “Have you ever though that maybe some of the things may not be relevant to this time period?” absolutely. good to here. amen. i’ve had two muslim women tell me that 4:11 is no longer applicable. so you disagree with the hudud being “god’s law” and unopen to alteration? if so, great to hear.
    “So many Islamic countries do not follow the punishment of lashing now. (with the exception of Saudi Arabia) Even if they did, you cannot deny that crime is considerably low in Islamic countries. Why? Because people are actually afraid of the law.” yes draconian laws are often effective. so you would hope to see the government strike fear into the populous.
    “(People in Saudi Arabia leave their house doors unlocked and go out, and their houses remain intact and burglary is unlikely to occur.)” great. but now i’m confused. then again, i’m an idiot so that happens easily. are you saying some of the hudud is not applicable, or are you endorsing it for it’s effectiveness?

    “Look at this quote from the Bible about divorce

    Mark 10:9 reads, “What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”” lol. yeah i’ve been to many catholic weddings. four just with my brothers and sisters. the catholics read it as “let no man put asunder”. a little more biblical sounding, don’t you think. kind of like poisoning heart.

    “Do you agree with that? Do you accept that divorce should not be allowed? Or would you say it is not relevant to this time period?” i would say it was never relevant. was a bad law then and a bad law now.

    “Yes you would agree with the latter. So here is a good piece of advice for you. Do your research properly and preach the facts rather than pretending to know more than you claim. You really are a first class idiot.” well thanks for the advise. but what is “properly”. i’ve read the koran, and many hadiths. many islamic website. but i don’t follow you at all with pretending to know more than you claim? i don’t know what that means? but i’m glad to hear i’m at least a first class idiot.

    ‘Wa ‘Alaikum

    checkout these numbers. perhaps england has made you soft/unislamic.

    http://pewresearch.org/databank/dailynumber/?NumberID=1184

  22. would you call this propaganda? poisoning people’s hearts. there all sorts of muslims giving their opinion on the propoer punishments within islam.

    http://www.missionislam.com/knowledge/ruling%20zina.htm

    “The correct opinion (and Allah knows best) is that which the majority of the scholars have agreed to, and that is, the one who is to be punished by stoning should not be lashed.” sweet. no need to take 100 lashes before you are stoned to death.

  23. Mike, I really don’t know what you are trying to achieve here. You say you don’t know about Islam, but yet when we try to tell you, you just criticize what we are saying. If you are trying to show Islam in a bad light or try and get other Muslims to turn away from Islam, you’re in the wrong place I’m afraid. You will never change the hearts of the true Muslims and to be honest, there’s no point trying to explain anything to you because you don’t want to listen so just carry on with your mockery and your pessimism comments.

    P.S The Islamic greeting is As-salamu alaykum. And don’t you dare use the fact that I am British as a base for your argument. That’s just completely out of order and actually a little racist.

    Have a good day now.
