Prominent Islamophobes have been on the run since their dream scenario in Norway -- another excuse to bash Muslims -- turned around to be just the opposite. One of those backpedalling the fastest has been the loathesome Pamela Geller, a hatemonger of the highest order who runs a blog with the ironymeter-straining title of "Atlas Shrugs". It turns out the Norwegian shooter was a big fan of hers, so now of course she's doing her best to distance herself from him:

Quote

“It’s like equating Charles Manson, who heard in the lyrics of Helter Skelter a calling for the Manson murders,” Geller said in an exclusive phone interview. “It’s like blaming the Beatles. It’s patently ridiculous.”

Sorry, but wrong. It's not like that at all. The Beatles didn't make it their life's work to foment intolerance and hatred towards Charles Manson's murder victims. People like Geller do exactly that towards Muslims, and towards those who refuse to go along with their anti-Muslim crusade.

A far better comparison for Geller would be the radical Islamic imams who incite their followers to violence against non-Muslims. Fittingly enough.

There was a really good article on Slate.com on this matter actually.
