Kevin “Kev” Carroll, the “Number Two in Command” of the English Defence League and Chairman of the nationalist British Freedom Party, was arrested last week on a charge relating to a Facebook post he made in reference to Muslims, which read:
“They are all backward savages, a devil-spawned death-cult worshipping [sic] all that is barbaric and unholy. Pure evil.”
Pamela Geller, predictably, rushed to Carroll’s defense, even claiming credit for his infusing reference to “savages” into the shared lexicon of banner-carrying Islamophobes (emphasis author’s own):
“Joining the co-founder of the EDL in prison, Kevin Carroll has been arrested for a Facebook comment. This is part of the war on freedom and its champions.
“Kevin Carroll and Tommy Robinson are on the SION President’s Council and are true fighters for freedom. They oppose the oppression, subjugation and racism of Islamic supremacism. But the savages have succeeded in imposing the sharia – hence their arrests.
“Apparently Kevin Carroll used the word I made famous in our AFDI ads, ‘savage’. And got arrested. The savages didn’t like it. The [sic] is blasphemy enforcement by dhimmi law enforcment. But their instructions came from on high. Shocking. If the Brits don’t fight back, it’s over for them.”
This should go some way to reflecting on Geller, of Anders Behring Breivik manifesto infamy, and the caliber of those who seek to work with her and vice-versa.
One needs not spend much time in the short-term exposing this international cabal of Islamophobes for what they are when they so openly expose themselves, after all, but the importance of doing so will never diminish.
