Sure, having a contest to draw goofy image of Mohammed should be met with death. We’re sure most liberals agree.
The right-wing blogger who organized the ‘Draw Muhammad’ event that was targeted by two gunmen over the weekend has had a fierce TV confrontation with a hate preacher, who thinks she should receive capital punishment.
Extreme anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller argued with British-based cleric Anjem Choudary during Fox News’ Hannity on Wednesday night, just days after Elton Simpson, 31 and Nadir Soofi, 34, tried to storm the controversial cartoon event in Garland, Texas.
Geller, 56, who has received death threats since the anti-Islamic exhibition, began by claiming President Obama has ‘created an environment that raised the stakes’ on terror in the United States.
Host Sean Hannity then reminds his viewers what Choudary believes in – which is imposing Sharia law across all countries, including America.
The controversial imam then says: ‘Let’s be clear we are not talking about Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. We are talking about people who deliberately had a competition to insult the messenger Muhammad.
‘If you saw the cartoons that Charlie Hebdo drew, you would understand the anger.’
Rabble rouser Choudary, who once said ‘the flag of Islam will fly over the White House’, then goes on to talk about how Geller was fully aware that many Muslims consider blasphemy a crime that is worthy of the death penalty.
Host Sean Hannuity then shouts: ‘You want her to die!’
To which Choudary replies: ‘She should be put before a Sharia court and tried and, if guilty, face capital punishment.’
Geller says: ‘To blame me and say that my cartoons are controversial… murdering cartoonists is controversial.’
The head of the American Freedom Defense Initiative then tries to get Choudary to stop interrupting her, and at one point says: ‘I know you’re used to stepping over women.’
Choudary then says Geller is worse than a ‘Khanzier’- Arabic for pig – and starts ranting about Americans murdering innocent people, prompting Hannity to intervene.
