Pam Geller claims FBI, DHS have not contacted her

Pamela Geller, the woman targeted by terrorists in Texas over the weekend during a free speech event which inflamed tensions with Muslims, says the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have not contacted her after the failed attacked.

She made the comments Wednesday in an interview with Sean Hannity.

“This is a serious threat,” said Hannity. “Basically a Fatwa, a death threat, has now been issued. Your reaction to that? Have you had any contact with the FBI?”

“They have not contacted me, but of course we’ve now increased my team. I have a team now, private security, and NYPD counterterror has been in touch with me,” said Geller.

“I did,” Geller confirmed.

Hannity followed up, “Homeland Security hasn’t gotten ahold of you, the FBI hasn’t gotten ahold of you?”

“No, and this is interesting because this is a terrorist threat. And the FBI, President Obama should provide security. There’s no question about it. Because he created an environment that raised the stakes on this,” Geller said.

Geller has also been attacked by moderate Muslims and leftists/media because she has no remorse for the death of the gunmen: Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi.

Does Pamela Geller regret organizing the Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that ended in gunfire?” the AP began their story. In an editorial Thursday, The New York Times said Geller “has a long history of declarations and actions motivated purely by hatred for Muslims” and called the Garland event “an exercise in bigotry and hatred posing as a blow for freedom. … To pretend it was motivated by anything other than hate is simply hogwash.”

“Cartoons are political critique. It’s a cartoon,” she said. “Is that what we want to outlaw? We want to outlaw humor? We want to outlaw comedy? If you want to know who rules over you, find out who you cannot criticize.”

“I will continue to speak in defense of freedom until the day I die,” Geller said Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press, as a grim-looking personal security guard hovered nearby. “It’s just that simple. It’s not even a choice. It’s a calling.”
