    In the wide-ranging “The Kelly File” interview, Kelly asked the potential contender for the Republican presidential nomination where he stood in the debate between provoking terror and liberty. “I think it’s about both,” Bush said. “I think the First Amendment, and freedom — freedom of expression — trumps everything else.” However, Bush told Kelly, it’s not “necessarily appropriate” to hold an event knowing it could provoke a violent reaction from radical Muslims. *snip* Kelly pressed Bush, asking “Why is it inappropriate? Why not stand up to the terrorists and say we’re going to draw what we want to draw?” “I...

    Pamela Geller endorsed Ted Cruz for President Sunday, but hardly anyone noticed. The activist and outspoken critic of Islamic extremists made the endorsement in a Sunday blog post titled "Ted Cruz on Jihad in Texas: ‘Thankfully one police officer helped them meet their virgins.’” Though that headline doesn't offer a clue about her decision to back the Senator from Texas in the 2016 election, she didn't bury the political lede. Here are her first two paragraphs: I endorse Cruz for 2016. The media is going to try to use this against him. But they have been thoroughly discredited in the...

      The response in many quarters to Islamists' so-called outrage to insulting the prophet Mohammed has been to cower in fear and blame those who exercise their right to free speech rather than those who would kill over it. Lost in the argument is the simple truth that Islamists kill for the sake of killing Christians- both in the Middle East and Africa. ISIS and Boko Haram share that inclination. As slandering Christianity and persecuting Christians has become largely de rigueur in the United States of America it seems not to raise many eyebrows. The left, however, claims to own...

    Pam GellerI was surprised and pleased, upon scouring the Internet, to find that Pamela Geller, the anti-Islam activist, is a looker. I would have supposed, listening to the many male commenters who have been denouncing her, that she must be partly bald, with most of her remaining hair sprouting from her nose and chin, and with the most repulsive, irregular facial features. But no, she really is attractive, and I say this objectively. My appraisal has nothing to do with the fact that I am considerably older than she is, and am finding it tougher to get dates. And yet...

    Oliver Wendell Holmes made the analogy during a controversial Supreme Court case that was overturned more than 40 years ago. Ninety-three years ago, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote what is perhaps the most well-known -- yet misquoted and misused -- phrase in Supreme Court history: "The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic." Without fail, whenever a free speech controversy hits, someone will cite this phrase as proof of limits on the First Amendment. And whatever that controversy may be, "the law"--as some have curiously...

Throughout the week Pam Geller has been singled out as someone who unfairly provoked Muslims into attacking her by having a Mohamhead drawing contest.

The secular answer according to the media is mostly no, she should not yell fire in a crowded theater, in her case the theater is on fire while...

    et’s be clear: The great freak-out over Pamela Geller’s “draw Muhammad” contest isn’t about love for Islam or for robust and respectful religious pluralism. Indeed, many of those expressing anguish over blasphemy against Islam show no such concern over even the most vile attacks on the Christian faith. Beyond that, they’re among the leaders in movements designed to banish religious liberty — including Muslim religious liberty — to the margins of American life. Instead, the fury against Pamela Geller is motivated mostly by fear — by the understanding that there are indeed many, many Muslims who believe that blasphemy should...

That’s all. “My country is in danger,” she said to Sean Hannity on his radio show yesterday — and she is right. When O’Reilly says “Insulting the entire Muslim world is stupid… It does not advance the cause of liberty or get us any closer to defeating the savage jihad,” he is, as Megyn Kelly said, confused. It isn’t Geller’s job to defeat ISIS. That’s the President’s job. It isn’t her job to provoke — or not provoke. It isn’t her job to...

    It's quite astonishing to watch what is unfolding in America today as our media engages in self-censorship while acting as apologists for the actions of Islamic terrorism. By doing this, the media not only sacrifices the freedom of speech that is essential to our pluralistic society, but it also promotes the fear that jihadists seek to instill by dictating what is and isn't "off limits" to debate. This is already happening with news reporters such as Ayman Mohyeldin of NBC now calling for special speech protections for Islam in the wake of Sunday's terrorist attack in Garland, Texas.

To draw caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, which she knows is forbidden by most Muslims and frowned upon by the rest. The result? Two violent radical Muslims opened fire on the group, and the shooters ended up dead at the hands of...
