Playing for the cameras and getting played. What a racket.
I love when the DA tool District Attorney George Gascon badly paraphrases Edmund Burke’s famous quote that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Well, Gascon, the only thing worse than doing nothing is actually aiding and abetting the enemy.
Did Gascon and his council of quislings condemn the quotes by the jihadists? Not. a. chance. What is implied here is that Gascon and the craven council associate all Muslims with violent jihad. Whose the phobe now, clown?
Check out the small pro-jihad group mugging and jumping in front of the cameras.
I’ll say one thing, though: the ads look great. Love the ad? Make it happen. Contribute here.
‘Killing Jews Is Worship’ Ad Campaign Rolled Out On SF Buses CBS, San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – A controversy has been re-ignited this week
as ten new ads go up on San Francisco Muni buses containing quotes used

the ads, which has people debating the line between free speech and
“The purpose of our campaign is to show the reality of Jihad, the
root causes of terrorism. Using the exact quotes and text that they

is introducing a resolution at Tuesday’s board meeting to denounce the
Geller said the ads were a response to another bus ad campaign earlier this year by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
That campaign sought to disassociate the word “jihad” with violence
and reclaim its meaning as “the struggle,” which is a central tenant of
“When someone attacks our religion it’s like they are attacking us,”
said Oakland Imam Salah el Seeiadi in response to the new ads.
Similar ads have already appeared in Washington D.C. and Chicago.
Geller, whose group also ran an ad campaign last year on Muni buses that referred to Muslims as “savages,” [MEDIA LIE ALERT]criticized the San Francisco city officials for holding today’s event against her campaign.
“They’re holding a press conference to denounce … my pointing out the
truth,” she said. “The purpose of our ads is to show the purpose of
“I am merely using high-profile Muslims and their own words. How does
that paint every Muslim with the same brush? I don’t understand that,”
MUNI and its ad subcontractor decided the signs were well within
first amendment guidelines. However, the transit system decided not to
