WASHINGTON: Conservative blogger Pamela Geller brought her controversial film "The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of The 911 Attacks" to CPAC as part of her broader seminar on the Lower Manhattan project. The controversy and media attention for the project may have faded but to many in the conservative movement, particularly defense hawks, the project is still extremely important. Her seminars yesterday and today were both well attended though by the end of the screening of her film the crowd was significantly smaller. The reason for the exodus of people from the screening room is simple: It was a terrible movie.
The film consists primarily of rally footage, interviews with Geller and her sidekick Robert Spencer, cable news clips, and the occasional violent imagery. While it dives into the the life and background of the controversial Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf it focuses primarily on the attacks on the opponents of the Mosque, relying heavily on media clips where opponents of the mosque are called bigots.
