  •  Geller is just a useful idiot for the right (0+ / 0-)

    and a hardcore racist. I think Stewart will take her for the crank that she is. Fortunately, she represents a small number of people in the Jewish community. A community that overwhelmingly supports the President at higher than national rates.

    •  Unfortunately Geller's lies (4+ / 0-)

          sites including dKos the occasional appearance of memes rooted in the Islamophobic lies originating from Geller and her allies. More often than not the direct attribution to Geller, or Spencer or Fjordman has been lost as their ideas circulate across the Web and pique interest within a variety of communities (womens rights; LGBT; pro-Israel propaganda; atheists) by confirming caricatures of Islam and Muslims. Yet due diligence eventually reveals the source of misinformation.
