Sharia in NYC: City Council Members Demand our AFDI Ads Come Down, MTA Says No, “Our Hands are Tied”

Free speech — ain’t that a kick in the head, NYC City Council?

The fascists and totalitarians on the useless, bloated NYC Council have tried to impose their vicious agenda on freedom-loving New Yorkers by demanding that the NYC MTA take our ads down. Not concerned with the very real threat this city faces as the number one target of jihadists worldwide, they want instead to silence any criticism of our savage enemies who have vowed to attack New York.

If only the NYC Council was focused on keeping us safe instead of squandering millions of taxpayer dollars serving special interest supremacists and demagogues.

This is the poison fruit of a leftwing political machine that holds this great city hostage. Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall were pikers next to these ghouls. Another fat, bureaucratic, parasitical machine whose objective is control, control, control.

Upset joined by Public Advocate Letitia James, wrote MTA boss Thomas Prendergast this week to demand the removal of inflammatory ads placed by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. But the MTA says nothing can be legally done to stop the ads.Doesn’t matter how upset City Council members — of all backgrounds — may be about anti-Islamic advertising at MTA stations: The transit agency says even if they don’t like it, there’s nothing they can do to stop it.The lawmakers, joined by Public Advocate Letitia James, wrote MTA boss Thomas Prendergast this week to demand the removal of inflammatory ads placed by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.Among those protesting the signs — which include references to jihad, the killing of Jews, and images of an ISIS member standing over the late journalist James Foley — are the heads of the Council’s Progressive, Jewish, and Black, Latino and Asian Caucuses.But Adam Lisberg, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, says there’s no legal way to pull the ads down.”Our hands are tied,” Lisberg said in an email Friday.”A court ruled that our earlier ‘no demeaning’ advertising standard ran afoul of the First Amendment,” he noted.”These ads are in compliance with our revised advertising standard, including the mandatory disclaimer that they do not imply any endorsement by the MTA.”

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
