Breitbart News Daily: Pamela Geller on Terror Attacks in Paris and Garland

“We’ve lost our civilizational self-esteem,” warns Pamela Geller during a Tuesday appearance on Breitbart News Daily. Geller illustrated her point by discussing the Paris terror attack and comparing it to the aborted jihadi attempt to murder her, along with hundreds of other attendees, at her Mohammed Art Exhibit in Garland, Texas. She succinctly summed up the difference between Paris and Garland as: “We had guns.”

Media Highly Sensitive to ‘Blasphemy’ Against Islam, But Still Merrily ‘Provocative’ Against Christians

This sudden concern for religious sensibility from the media elite is astounding, since it seems like only yesterday they were gleefully encouraging hate mobs to trash Christians who dared to politely assert their own religious beliefs. The media elite has no problem whatsoever with cartoons, and other forms of entertainment, designed to offend Christians.

Texas Terror Shooter’s Parents Say He Was ‘Pushed’ Into Jihad

Nadir Soofi was, by all accounts, the junior partner in the Texas Terror jihad attack. His roommate Elton Simpson was a “known wolf” who was very much on law enforcement’s radar screen, which is giving rise to some awkward questions about why counter-terrorist agencies could manage little more than a last-minute heads-up to the Garland police.
