VIDEO: MTA Board Member Charles Moerdler’s “Filthy” “Odious” Attack on Free Speech

26

Here is the video I described earlier of power-mad MTA Board member Charles Moerdler, who led today’s putsch against free speech. He was the only one on record to support the ban. But the fix was in before this meeting ever took place.

Moerdler’s rant was not about the jihad ads. No. In a vicious and disgusting tirade, Moerdler attacked our BDS ads (below) that expose his pals, wealthy Jewish donors who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) initiatives against Israel.

Moerdler railed against our ads exposing wealthy donors’ support of the New Israel Fund, which supports BDS organizations, shrieking about lashon hara. Actually, truth is not lashon hara, but calling me an egomaniac and a zealot is. Calling our ads “filth,” Moerdler fails to acknowledge the damage and destruction of BDS to the Jewish state. Even an Israeli court ruled that funding BDS was terrorism. Mr. Moerdler and his country club buddies are OK with that, but a “zealot” calling them out about it is “filthy.”

This is part II of Moerdler’s meltdown. After several board members stood in defense of free speech, Moerdler berated us again with his “filthy” mouth.

Moerdler uses the Holocaust and Mein Kampf as examples of why free speech should be banned, but it was because free speech was banned that totalitarianism was able to spread in Germany. If the Nazis had allowed free speech, they would never have remained in power as long as they did. His flaunting of being a Holocaust survivor was simply evil.
The rich and powerful trumped our unalienable rights in New York City, April 29, 2015.
UPDATE: Atlas reader Russ points out:
At 7:37  Moerdler: “Neither the Quran nor the Bible nor the Torah nor any other compass of conscience condones hateful speech.”
With that, Moerdler’s vast legal credentials fall like dandruff from his bald pate. Forget the horrors of the Old Testament, the Quran is the “mother lode of bad ideas” (thanks, Sam Harris). For wall-to-wall, plain-as-the-broad-side-of-a-barn hatred, nothing compares to the Quran. For Moerdler to deny that impeaches all his other arguments. Unlike at a council meeting (where speech is limited to 2 minutes) in a court, you’ll have time to show how much hate fills the Quran. And Hamas airwaves quoting it.
You’ll also have time to show how your ads are NOT lashon hara:
“Lashon hara differs from defamation in that its focus is on the use of true speech for a wrongful purpose, rather than falsehood and harm arising. Speech is considered to be lashon hara if it says something negative about a person or party, is not previously known to the public, is not seriously intended to correct or improve a negative situation, and is true.”
Your ads, while true, expose horrific wrongs for the sole purpose of raising public awareness so those wrongs can be stopped. You “seriously intend to correct or improve a negative situation,” which means your work is NOT lashon hara.
Strange advice from a ‘30s German refugee: don’t provoke brutes, they may hurt you! Does meek silence protect you? Isn’t an informed public a better defense?
