Anyone who has studied the career of Pamela Geller understands that she's a provocateur. I don't pay much attention to her because I kinda got her point a long time ago and further inquiry isn't worth my time, or yours, most likely. I don't pay much attention to Dan Savage or Tom Tomorrow either. All of these individuals have their patrons and that's cool. Patrick "Patterico" Frey sums it up well:
There seems to be a debate between, on one hand, 1) the anti-Geller/Spencer/Wilders types, and on the other hand, 2) a group consisting of both a) pro-Geller/Spencer/Wilders types and b) people who worry about the effects on speech of fanatics claiming a heckler’s veto by virtue of killing anyone whose speech they don’t like.Being a 2 is the right way to approach the matter. Terrorism is more difficult in Texas than it is in Paris, too.
You can put me firmly in the latter camp, and although I am more of a “2b” type of guy, it doesn’t really matter today whether I’m an “a” or a “b.” What matters is that I am a 2.
