We are witnessing government systematically shutting down free speech across the Western countries. Our organization, AFDI, has submitted numerous ads to run on transit systems throughout the country. Our ads are either pro-Israel or counter-jihad, and sharia-compliant systems refuse them (while running pro-jihad, pro-“Palestinian” ads, of course).
As a result, we have filed numerous First Amendment cases across the countries, in our biggest cities (New York, Washington, Chicago, Miami, Boston, Seattle). Thanks to our preeminent legal team, AFLC, we have won all of our cases.
Great, right? Wrong. In response to our wins, respective city governments have banned all political ads — the Geller ban. New York, Washington, DC, Boston, Chicago, and Miami have all banned political, issue-related, and religious ads.
The city of Boston has been particularly egregious. They have run hundreds of vicious, libelous anti-Israel ads, while refusing all of our pro-Israel ads. This was the ad the MBTA first refused:
We spent 2 years fighting the MBTA.
We finally submitted this ad (below) — which led to the ban on all political ads. And while it is unconstitutional and must be fought, the good news is the jihadis and antisemites can’t run their ads anymore.
The board that oversees the MBTA voted Monday to ban all advertisements on the transit system that deal with political issues or “matters of public debate,” following recent controversies over ads dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Pamela: The MBTA has determined that your proposed ad is consistent with the current MBTA advertising policy. As you may know, however, the MBTA board recently voted to amend the current advertising policy. Unfortunately, your proposed ad does not comply with the amended policy and we are not able to print and install your ad…Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you. Scott.
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.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
