CNN’s Jake Tapper to Pamela Geller: ‘Is This Worth Dying For?’

tapper gellerUsaama Rahim, the Boston terror suspect fatally shot by law enforcement this week, had, according to authorities, been planning to behead Pamela Geller, because of her recent “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest a few weeks ago.

Geller reacted on CNN last night by saying this proves there’s a war going on in America over Sharia law and free speech, and she appeared on CNN again this afternoon to speak with Jake Tapper.

Geller said of course she fears for her life, but said “it’s scarier… to do nothing.” She again went off against the media attacks on her “instead of the jihadists.”

Tapper asked, “Is this worth dying for, in your view?” Geller invoked the declaration “give me liberty or give me death” and insisted that Americans will not throw their rights away, no matter what.
