Today On The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - Beginning Next week the Supreme Court will begin its 2014-2015 term, and Marriage equality, abortion, and birth control are all fairly likely to wind up on the Court’s docket before the justices go back on vacation next June.   Joining us today to discuss this upcoming term and the cases that are going to be considered is Ian Millhiser, Senior Constitutional Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and the Editor of Think Progress Justice as well as the author of the upcoming book INJUSTICES: The Supreme Court's History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted which will be published in March by Public Affairs Books.

4:35pm ET - According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Pamela Geller is the anti-Muslim movement's most visible and flamboyant figurehead. She is known for her broad-brush denunciations of Islam and preposterous claims, such as that President Obama is the "love child" of Malcolm X.  She appears on Fox News frequently as a guest and 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.  But as if that wasn't enough, she has recently launched an anti-Muslim advertisement campaign in New York City’s Public transportation system that is beyond the pale.  Joining us today to discuss Pam Geller and her bigotry is Dean Obeidallah & Negin Farsad the directors of the comedy documentary, “The Muslims Are Coming!” You can also follow Dean and Negin on twitter.
