NY Daily News (ht: Booman):

Manhattan blogger Pamela Geller and her posse of anti-Islamic protesters have been branded a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Stop the Islamization of America was included in the civil rights organization’s annual roundup of extremist groups – a rogue’s gallery that includes everything from the Ku Klux Klan to white supremacists and Nazis.

Geller’s group was one of the most vocal opponents of the proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero.

The group was also behind ads that were placed on city buses urging Muslims to leave “the falsity of Islam.”

Geller, who runs a blog called Atlas Shrugs, dismissed the Law Center as an “uber left” group that has “failed to address the greatest threat to our national security.”

“My group is a human rights group,” she said. “And these people are taken seriously? This is the morally inverted state of the world.”

My group is a human rights group! Man, irony is dead, cremated, the ashes were ground up and fed to monkeys and their shit was blasted into outer space.

One Response to Islamophobic Nut-Job Pam Geller Officially Designated a Hate Group

  1. Matt says:

    It’s easier to hate a religion than learn what about it causes controversy.

    Radical Islam is like the Westborough Baptist Church.
    Just because they have religion in the name, and say lots of religous sounding stuff just means that they had to dig through ancient texts to justify bigotry.

    Granted, during the time these texts were written, Sea Monsters were a legitimate danger to sailors.
