Pamela Geller is now making out like a bandit, raking in the dough from her foolish donors because of death threats she has received from ISIS over a prophet Muhammad drawing contest she organized. When Geller came under attack from many on the left for organizing the Muhammad-drawing event in Texas last week, it was the backlash on the right that really made news.
One of the most unbelievable responses came from Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera, who implied that just watching Geller on television made him feel so dirty, he gets the urge to go take a shower!
“She most reminds me of the Aryan Nation, KKK, racists,” Geraldo said. “I see them on television now and I feel like taking a shower.”
He continued; “If Pamela Geller, if you put ‘Jew’ in there or ‘Irish’ in there or ‘black’ in there, any other groups, she would not be given the tolerance to spew her hateful rhetoric!”
Geraldo Rivera from the Fox News Network signaled that he may run for the Senate representing New Jersey, saying that he’s been in touch with “some people in the Republican party” about running in 2014. But it seems that Geraldo is suffering from short-term memory.
In the 2012 presidential election, Geraldo went against everything Fox News and the Republicans stand for when he openly admitted he was voting for President Obama. In the tweet sent on November 5th right before the election, Geraldo said that he endorses Romney/Ryan, but will vote for Obama/Biden because of their stance on immigration and gay marriage.
Yes, that may have been his best vote yet, but if you really think New Jersey Republicans will forgive him for voting for their enemy and send Geraldo to the Senate, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’ll like to sell ya!
Taking to his Facebook Page, Fox host Geraldo Rivera apologized for comparing Trayvon Martin’s hoodie to George Zimmerman’s gun, a comparison that caused Mr. Rivera to conclude that the hoodie was equally to be blamed for Trayvon’s murder as the gunman himself. In his so-called apology, Rivera basically said he was sorry for using “very practical and potentially life-saving” words advising blacks and Hispanics to discard their hoodies.
“I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my, “very practical and potentially life-saving campaign urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies.”But here’s the rub, according to my legion of critics, by putting responsibility on what kids wear instead of how people react to them I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager, and I began today’s program with a sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone I may have offended by my crusade to warn minority families of the danger to their young sons inherent in gangsta style clothing; like hoodies.
Over the last week, I’ve been buried under an avalanche of rage and the ridicule; essentially saying that I was blaming Trayvon Martin for his own death.
I wasn’t and I don’t. And, I remain absolutely convinced of what I said about asking for trouble. There’s trouble enough for minority boys and young men not to provoke mad responses from paranoid jerk offs.
But that doesn’t change what many, including members of my own family and friends believe.
That I have obscured or diverted attention from the principal fact, which is that an unarmed 17-year old was shot dead by a man who was never seriously investigated by local police. And if that is true, I apologize.”
– Geraldo Rivera
In other words, I’m sorry, but I was right for saying what I said. Some apology!
Rivera created a firestorm earlier this week when he argued the hoodie the unarmed teen chose to wear when he was killed in Florida was as much to blame for his death as the man that shot him.
Despite his own family’s harsh criticism, Rivera refused to budge on his position, adding on Twitter “Still I feel parents must do whatever they can to keep their kids safe.”
Rivera elaborated on his 32-year-old son’s shame to Politico.
“Gabriel broke my heart…He just told me for the first time in his life he’s ashamed,” he told the political website, adding his son believed he had “gone viral for all the wrong reasons.”
Rivera said he wrote Gabriel back and tried to explain his position that “every hoodie should come with a warning like cigarettes, ‘caution wearing this could get you killed.'”
