It takes a sick twisted person to lust (and I do mean lust) over fear and hate generated profits when dozens are injured and 3are dead, one of whom was an 8 year old child.

Meet Pamela Geller and her followers of her sick twisted blog Atlas Shrugs.

Without waiting for context or anything resembling evidence, without any assumption of innocence before guilt, when she learned  the news that an injured Saudi boy had been interviewed as a person of interest, Geller declared "Jihadi Arrested in Horrific Boston Marathon Bombing".

She declared while people were still being treated

Jihad in America. 2 dead, 80 injured. My deepest condolences to their loved ones. Monstrous.

MARATHON EXPLOSIONS: Boston hospitals report more than 100 being treated after Marathon explosions.

    Authorities ID suspect as Saudi national in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital NY Post

Then when news came out that no one had actually been arrested she blamed everyone else

UPDATE: The Boston police are not confirming the New York Post story, and the Twitter hyenas are rushing to blame Robert Spencer and me, as if we originated the idea that a jihadi did this. Spencer has this: "CBS and other sources say that police deny that they have a suspect in custody, but CBS also says that they're questioning possibly someone linked to the attack. The situation is unclear at this point, but despite the chorus of denials and numerous Leftists and Islamic supremacists crowing on Twitter, the New York Post story about the "Saudi national" has not been changed or taken down. I will keep you posted."
Being sold beside her outrageous articles are books on scary Islam and subscriptions to her blog, her site also runs loads of scripts linked to more and more advertisers and tracking software.

Geller profits from her hate. So as a result she did not relent.

She ran an article entitled "Saudi held in Boston terror bombing "smelled of gunpowder": “I thought there would be a second bomb”, it started

The Saudi being grilled by the FBI said, “I thought there would be a second bomb" and two bombs did go off. We now know that there were no unexploded bombs at Boston Marathon. Only two bombs ---

    Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says no unexploded bombs were found at the Boston Marathon. He says the only explosives were the ones that went off Monday.

“I thought there would be a second bomb."

He is being grilled by the FBI, and police were seen carrying 20 large bags from his apartment in Revere, Massachusetts. If the police charge him or even call him a suspect, he gets all lawyered up (the feds made that mistake with the Christmas underwear bomber.)

As if the right to an attorney was a completely Un-American idea.

She then posted a facebook picture of his, holding a golden gun. Something if he was white would be celebrated by her own compatriots as being something Pro American.

Linking to another hard right blogger David Hardwitz to justify her hate she repeated his article "Saudi Bombing Suspect: “If Today Really Was the Last Day, How Would You Spend It?”"

That facebook comment, posted a year ago, is no different to the common and positive way of looking at life as enjoying today is if it is your last. To Geller, the hate profiteer, that innocent statement was evidence of Jihad.

She exclaimed "Alharbi’s Facebook page hasn’t been updated in a while. He is a Saudi student and poses in the photo above holding a golden gun on Saudi Day. If he turns out to be one of the perpetrators, then the timing for Obama’s new open door policy to Saudi travelers will have been a particularly bad one."

She also ran articles trying to claim how the Muslim Brotherhood were involved in the outrage.

She then quotes the Daily Mail (already on the far right of the UK) and further twists them.

Of course we have to get this from the British papers. American media covered this same interview with the Saudi national's roommate, but left out what would be the most important piece of evidence if the Saudi national proves to be connected to the terror bombing in Boston.

    "He's a quiet, devout Muslim - he couldn't do that': Neighbors' shock as police raid Boston home linked to burned Saudi student seized near race finish line Daily Mail, April 16, 2013

        Bomb squad among 20 bags of evidence removed
        Saudi suspect, 20, under guard in hospital after 'acting suspiciously' in area
        Police also hunting dark skinned man with hooded dark-colored sweatshirt and backpack seen trying to get into restricted area
        Speculation mounts over who could be behind the attack that left three dead
        Fingers point towards either Islamic militants or right-wing extremists who chose to attack on symbolic Patriot's Day
        Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called bombings 'cruel act of terror'
        One of the bombs had been placed in a metal pressure cooker and was designed to look like a discarded item, police sources say

    Neighbors of the Saudi student who was detained for 'acting suspiciously' at the marathon finish line said they were shocked to hear he had any involvement in the bombing as he is a 'quiet, devout Muslim who is a huge soccer fan'.

Then she links the poor boy to Al Queda. Literally. Scare scare. Buy more books on guns, how gays are horrible unless you are doing adverts for hate in San Francisco and how Muslims are scary. Scare.

Then on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 02:37 PM Pamela Geller wrote the tiniest piece ever on her blog, not an apology, no a retraction just a wasn't me gov.

BREAKING: Steve Emerson on FOX News said  that the Saudi National has been ruled out as a suspect. Emerson also said that the attack has the earmarks of jihad.
The young man, not much more than a boy, a boy that Pamela Geller victimised for over 24 hours, someone she accused of being a "jihadist", was himself badly injured by the explosion. 3 people died. Dozens were injured. Pamela Geller hurt her profits by jumping on her usual Anti Muslim rage all too quickly. Which hurt does Geller care more about? Well she is now running articles claiming bombs made using pressure cookers are a Muslim invention.

She created another victim today. She attacked an innocent party and her her hordes attacked him. Even on his facebook page. They even hated him for his name alone:

Ishmail Alharoui said...

He is Bastard!, they all are, great picture for what? just reading his name makes me feel sick. Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi in English his surname will be the "The War", it is sick, I hate Saudis actually he looks like he is Yemeni more, don't forget Osama Bin laden was Saudi but Yemeni origin.

That Geller remains a leading light in the Republican movement of America says something about the GOP of today. Something seriously and worryingly wrong.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
