They’re the same, of course. But after the attempted terror attack by radical Islamists on the free speech event in Garland, Texas, questions are arising about whether Pamela Geller’s group is simply a hate group targeting Muslims. Maybe. But I still think the point that they therefore “had it coming” or something similar is a ghoulish idea. It reminds of someone saying that a woman is asking to be raped if she dresses provocatively. And further, I think it’s important to be able to say whatever, even hateful things, in a free society. And I also think Islam is VERY deserving of criticism.
