Sindy interviews Geller

Pamela Geller UndeadThe Independent on Sunday carries a lengthy interview by Robert Chalmers with Pamela Geller (“American patriot or extremist firebrand?”). You might think this is a bit excessive for a woman who, as Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs is quoted as saying, “has a very long record of absolute lunacy, mixed with bigotry and racism”.

Nor is the interview the hatchet job you might have hoped for. Chalmers does conclude the piece with a warning that Geller is acting “a magnifying glass capturing, focusing and intensifying the blinding prejudices of her compatriots … and directing them towards a pile of kindling”. But the main thrust of the interview is to present Geller as a personally charming right-wing eccentric.
