Southern Poverty Law Center Hates Pamela Geller; Which Means Geller is Probably Right

 Probably right about a lot of things.  I can't say I have spent enough time examining everything she has ever done but if she shows up on the SPLC radar and labeled an "extremist,"  then she's likely OK. 

From the SPLC profile of her:
  • Pamela Geller is the anti-Muslim movement's most visible and flamboyant figurehead. She's relentlessly shrill and coarse in her broad-brush denunciations of Islam and makes preposterous claims, such as that President Obama is the "love child" of Malcolm X. She makes no pretense of being learned in Islamic studies, leaving the argumentative heavy lifting to her Stop Islamization of America partner Robert Spencer. Geller has mingled comfortably with European racists and fascists, spoken favorably of South African racists, defended Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic and denied the existence of Serbian concentration camps. She has taken a strong pro-Israel stance to the point of being sharply critical of Jewish liberals.
