Pamela Geller Reacts to Reported Targeting by Terror Suspect: ‘This Is a War’

gellerRight after CNN reported on the Boston terror suspect reportedly planning to behead Pamela Geller, Erin Burnett spoke with Geller over the phone to get her reaction. And Geller said right off the bat, “This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against the savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?”

Geller said that since her “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest in Garland, Texas was targeted, she’s had “an army of security” and has no intentions of “surrendering” to terrorists.

Geller declared that “this is a war” and got a little fiery with Burnett when the CNN anchor questioned she’s being a little too provocative. Burnett asked, “Are you stoking the flames? Do you, on some level, relish being the target of these attacks?”

Geller took great offense and asked, “Who self-promotes to get killed?”
