I’ve heard her speak. Pamela Geller has rightly earned the sobriquet of “Islamaphobe” as she has railed in voice and word about “creeping Sharia” and “political Islam” in the US. There was standing room only for her talk when I first heard her.

And there have been standing room only crowds for her presentations in the past at the Conservative Political Action Conference () held each year, usually in Washington, DC. But not this year. And she thinks she knows why:

I won’t be at CPAC this year. I applied to speak  and was ignored. I tried to get a room for my AFDI (American Freedom Defense  Initiative) event, ‘The on Free Speech,’ and was ignored. So, for the first  time in five years, I won’t be at CPAC…

Every AFDI event at CPAC was standing room only. We turned people away  every year.

In the past she has featured Geert Wilders, the head of a major political party in The Netherlands and an outspoken critic of Islam. She hosted “Jihad: The Political Third Rail” which brought in a number of speakers which included Allen West, Wafa Sultan, Simon Deng, and Anders  Gravers.

In 2011 she focused on opposing the Ground Zero Mosque controversy while last year her sell-out crowd came to hear her presentation on “Islamic Law in America.”

These issues apparently rankle some of the powers-that-be behind CPAC, including Grover Norquist. Says Geller:

Geller calls her annual appearance at CPAC “a must-see event, addressing  issues that the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan cabal refuses to address: jihad,  sharia, [and] the war on in the West.”

According to World News Daily:

Norquist is the well-known president of Americans for Tax Reform, who became  an outspoken opponent of politicizing the Ground Zero mosque issue,  calling it a “distraction.” Though he has called himself as a “boring white  bread Methodist,” he is married to a Muslim woman.

There’s more to Norquist than is shown on his Wikipedia entry, much more. There are certain topics that are now off-limits for CPAC, and Geller’s Islamophobia is one of them.

Instead CPAC this year will provide more “boring white bread” with speakers like Sarah Palin, and featured instead of Geller.
