Pamela Geller, WND Column: San Francisco wages brutal war on free speech

DEFENDING THE WEST

Now San Francisco wages brutal war on free speech
Exclusive: Pamela Geller exposes left’s ‘oppression and tyranny’ in silencing Americans

In a unanimous vote, the uber-left San Francisco autocratic government shut down free speech on transit systems last Tuesday after our organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, submitted our latest ad campaign to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority to run on buses across the city.

This action is emblematic of the left: Silence your opponents, as all totalitarians do.

Here is where the euphemistically named “Free Speech Movement” has taken us: not to free speech at all, but to oppression and tyranny. This is an outrageous violation of our First Amendment rights. Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced.

Inoffensive speech needs no protection. The First Amendment was developed precisely to protect speech that was offensive to some in order to prevent those who had power from claiming they were offended by speech opposing them and silencing the powerless.

Our latest ad merely calls for support of President Donald Trump’s immigration ban, and it runs the names of refugees into the United States who have been convicted of Islamic terror-related crimes. We intend to run it in sanctuary cities across America where the freedom of speech has not yet been banned. Sadly, the list of cities where it has been banned is ever-increasing. New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Miami and Chicago have all banned “political” and “cause-related” advertising.

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.
