LIBERTARIAN BLAST FROM THE PAST...
Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs has just discovered this video clip from a late 1970s appearance by Ayn Rand on the Phil Donahue show, in which she makes some rather politically incorrect remarks about Muslim Middle-Easterners.
"But if you mean whose side should one be on Israel or the Arabs? I would certainly say Israel!"Note From the Editor: Last night I had the pleasure of attending Pamela Gellers speech to the Collins County Conservative Republican Club in McKinney, Texas (just north of Dallas.) Her presentation was remarkably informative and entertaining. The woman is simply stunning in person. I was especially taken aback as to how well-versed she is in Randian theory, and how open she was about her Randian views, even to an overwhelming conservative audience.
Israel is up against "a group of almost totally primitive savages, who have not changed for years, and are racist, and resent Israel because it is bringing industry, intelligence, modern technology..."
"They're terrorists... they're monsters..."
Her message: This is the ultimate fight of Individualism vs. Radical Jihadist philosophy that seeks to destroy Capitalism and instill Collectivism through imposition of Sharia. And this, she said, includes the "Muhammadism" of Obama.
Pamela is currently speaking to select groups around the nation, in preparation for the release of her new book on Radical Islam, which is co-authored with Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch. The book is set to be released early next year. If you get the chance to attend one of her events, I highly recommend it.
