AFDI Freedom of Speech Rally in Garland, Texas



Pamela Geller was in the house, well in Garland, Texas anyway.

Ms. Geller came to speak to supporters at a Freedom of Speech Rally outside Sound Vision's Stand With the Prophet Muhammad fundraiser at the Curtis Culwell Event Center in Garland, Texas.

I find it interesting that the big to do made in the news by North Texas Muslims was about fear, hate, and oppression, yet dozens of cars pulled up to the center with women covered from head to toe in extremely oppressive garb. Muslims from all over North Texas came to raise funds to build a strategic communications center.

Two of the speakers, Imam Siraj Wahhaj and Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid are well known for making seditious statements against US Laws, support of bringing Sharia Law to the US, and have well-known terrorist ties.  Wahhaj is a possible co-conspirator to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. Yet since the 9/11 attacks, the two men claim to have toned down the seditious speech.

Protesters let them know in no uncertain terms that our citizens will not be silenced and will not submit to Sharia Law. Yet the Muslims co-protesting with their Give Peace a Chance songs blaring from loud speakers, only focused on the twisted message a handful of newly-created Facebook accounts posted in protest. Ironically, Muslims claimed they were afraid, but had no trouble admonishing protesters about being afraid of them. All concocted silliness to be honest and accompliced by some of the news media in attendance.

An acquaintance and I followed the media around and watched a particularly shameful WFAA reporter Jenny Doren ambulance chase a car carrying a crying Muslim woman into the event lot. Upon witnessing this, it was no surprise her report was one-sided.  Other reporters on Channel 11 told stories of make-believe TNT and threats made by Facebook accounts created just to cause trouble on social media, and since there is no way of confirming who those individuals were, they might just as easily have been Muslims bent on making themselves appear victimized.

What I witnessed were throngs of patriotic folks who love their bible and love Jesus and do not want the tenets of Sharia Law forced upon them. I witnessed the news media only approaching those who were shouting the loudest so they could get their sensationalist story.

True, there were Christians proselytizing, as they do even at our front door some Sunday mornings, however they were the exception and not the rule.

Here is what I witnessed.
