Extremist Pam Geller Busted Sharing Fake Video

Media Matters reports:

Notorious anti-Muslim commentator Pamela Geller uploaded and shared an obviously staged video framing migrants in Italy as anti-police vandalizers in the context of Italy’s highly contested general election.

On February 11, Pamela Geller’s “Morning News Report” newsletter featured a YouTube video titled “Migrants in Italy” which was uploaded on February 7 to Geller’s YouTube channel, and shared on her personal website. The video shows people (who are actors) vandalizing an Italian police car with bats and sticks. Geller presented the video as real without verifying its authenticity in a shameless attempt to smear migrant men.

The video, in reality, is an amateur recording of an Italian film shooting. The drama Mediterranea chronicles two friends from Burkina Faso who experience hostility after immigrating to Italy. The allegation that the video depicts Italian migrants engaged in a criminal act has been debunked since as early as 2014, by Italian, French, and German language websites. (A directional microphone and light-diffusion panel are also visible in the frame, though Geller seemed not to have noticed them.)

          I see you’ve taken time off from fixing up the basement for Jared to practice your Latin translation skills.
          Not too bad.

          Is this a motto you are now going to use as inspiration for tormenting him?

          • another_steve

            Jared has disappointed me, Chris.

            I mean… I don’t require 100 percent devotion to the good and the noble, but at a minimum you must renounce the Ivanka horror and cast out all mob-related gentiles from your life.

          • ChrisMorley

            That did seem to be the weakness in your otherwise noble plan.

      Some people just have no conscience. Or empathy. If it doesn’t affect them or anyone in their circle, they don’t care at all. Psychopaths.

      • another_steve

        That. In a nutshell.

        In the fullness of time, they with “conscience” prevail.

        Why?

        Not because some imaginary deity declares it, but because they who possess it and who co-exist, prevail.

      I have seen that look before. Usually there is something on the table that he or she wants but knows better than to just grab it.

      My cat, in her old age, has taken to feeling out the edge of the table with her paw, as she can no longer jump up or even stretch to see over the edge. We’ll be eating dinner and out of the corner of my eye I see movement and, sure enough, I see a paw moving around the edge of the table. She’s so bad but she’s cute!

        Old, disabled cats appreciate being given help. Give your kitty a lift up to the table top so she can see what you are eating.

        • AmeriCanadian

          Oh don’t I know it. She regularly gets tours of the house and yard (when it’s warm) while being cradled in our arms. She likes us to stop and let her sniff things. Sometimes it becomes play time with the plants as she bats at them and tries to chew them.

      There’s a lot of very nasty racist hate and anti-migrant violence in the Italian general election campaign. The vote is on 4 March.

      “behind the sofa”

      My man and I were once caregivers for a wonderful Siamese cat. The smartest cat we ever lived with. He had a thing for cooked lamb bones, so we’d cook them for him, just as he liked them. The bones always seemed to disappear overnight.

      When he passed, we found a pile of half-eaten lamb bones stacked neatly under the living room sofa.

        We used to go to Chinatown to buy chickens’ feet for the malamutes. They loved them. The practice ended when I found one “buried” in the sofa cushions.

          San Francisco has a wonderful Chinatown. It was one of the highlights of my last visit to your fabulous city.

            Oh give them a chance steve… the whole upside of that whole Empire thing was the opportunity to appropriate the cuisine of the various colonies. I am sure you can get a better curry in Manchester or London than you can in Delhi now. But if your are talking that whole “boil it till it turns grey… then pour out the water and serve the grey” thing then I hear ya.

      • Nychta

        My cat friend Molly is a mighty hunter of lizards. Once she catches them she brings them into her lair – which happens to be the bedroom. Sometimes they escape.

        Last year I detected an odd, disturbing smell in the bedroom. Couldn’t find the source anywhere. Then I changed the bed and a dead lizard dropped out of one of the pillow cases. Evidently he’d gone into hiding there, died, and became stench potpourri. Lovely.

    On my 2 trips to Italy, last year, I was surprised to see and hear Arficans speaking fluent Italian. Then I though about the countries, that Italy had as a “Colonial Power”: Libya, Ethiopia and the current Eritrea. So, it made senses.

    • BobSF_94117

      Very few people of African origin in Italy come from Italy’s former colonies. Most are from West Africa. This is especially true of recent immigrants from Africa.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_emigrants_to_Italy#North_and_North_East_Africans

      • Hank

        Honestly, I did not know, from where, they came. Most of them spoke fluent Italian and I presumed, they were born there. When I did my Grad work in Bruxelles, Belgium allowed their former colonies, Zaire/Congo to send students for education at their Universities. The largest minorities, were from Morocco, who came in the 60s as “Guest Workers” similar to the Turks in Germany.

    • Reality.Bites

      A bark is really the same in any language, although obviously Arficans in Italy understand Italian.

      Most African migrants in Italy you see now are desperate asylum seekers from sub-Saharan African countries who’ve been people smuggled at high prices and risk to their lives crossing the Mediterranean.
      They need to pick up Italian to survive.

    As is so often the case, anti-foreigner radicals can’t put together any convincing data sets to justify their bias so they invent their own or creatively reinterpret something that bears no relation to the point they are trying to make.

    I still remember the Breitbart report that claimed a 1,000 strong mob of Islamists burned down Germany’s oldest cathedral… only to days later be forced to issue a correction because Germany’s much more vigorous and truthful media pointed out that not a single word of it was correct. It was a church not a cathedral, it was not deliberately burned down but instead scaffolding outside was hit with stray fireworks, there were no Islamists but a gathering of people some of which were Muslim, and there weren’t actually 1,000+ of them.

  • ‘Til Tuesday

    For right-wing groups, it doesn’t matter any more whether something is factual or true. What matters is, does it advance their agenda? And, do people respond to it? If those two things happen, then for the right-wing groups, it’s “mission accomplished”.

    And for people inclined to the right, they really don’t care whether something is true any more, but rather how does it make them feel, and does it confirm their worst fears and stereotypes of other? If it does, then it’s all good. They’ll dismiss the fact that a story is false with a wave of the hand and declare it as unimportant.

    I know that’s sick and twisted to rational people who still believe in things like facts, truth, and reality. Unfortunately huge numbers of our fellow Americans have taken leave of that.

  • The_Wretched

    Not that I’d agree with them but if the racist / phobic groups had actual bad events and harms to point to, I could at least see why they are endlessly fear mongering. But they don’t. The harms they are concerned about are so rare and irrelevant that they have to turn to manufacturing problems.

  • Puck

    The damage has already been done! She, Republican, christians don’t care if it is true. They put this out and their followers see it. The news debunking this story will not appear on their TVs. Those who do here it will say dems doctored it up to disprove the video.

    So like I said, the damage has been done.
