The Queens Village Republican Club, will be honoring Pamela Geller as the “American Patriot of the Year” at its 138th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner on February 10th. Ms. Geller is an author, investigative journalist, activist, captivating speaker and founder, editor and publisher of Atlas Shruggs.com a breaking news blog, and executive director of American Freedom Defense Initiative (ADFI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA). She is perhaps best known for spearheading the protest against the Ground Zero mosque, organizing several mass rallies to halt the construction of Park51, the Islamic Cultural Center near Ground Zero, which according to Geller, the majority of Americans, 70%, find deeply insulting. The GOP Club’s annual dinner will be held on February 10, at the famous Antun’s of Queens Village, where almost every New York State governor, mayor, and president of the United States has been present since the 1950s. A lavish cocktail hour with an abundance of food and open bar starts at 3 PM, and the sit-down dinner starts at 4 PM along with the award ceremonies and keynote address, and goes to 8 PM with a Viennese Table of delectable and exotic deserts accompanied by patriotic music and dancing at the end. Every year the historic Club, which was founded in 1875, when Queens was mostly farmland, honors unique and outstanding individuals who have made significant contributions to the community. Pamela Geller’s award for patriotism is due to her courageous and unwavering stance as a major proponent of free speech.
