The lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of political activist Pamela Geller, challenges the Governor’s and Mayor’s executive orders which prohibit “non-essential gatherings” of more than 10 people in the City—orders which make it unlawful to peaceably assemble and protest, unless your protest supports the political agenda of the BLM movement.
In an extraordinary rebuke of judicial redress, Clinton appointed Judge Denise Cote tried to dismiss our lawsuit against New York City’s ban against protests. I have filed many a free speech lawsuit against various municipalities including New York and never before did I see a judge schedule our hearing almost immediately and try to dismiss it just as quickly – without even giving us an opportunity to present our case. This is a glaring example of how decayed and corrupt the New York political system is.
What’s missing from @NYDailyNews’ op-ed is their mea culpa AND that every single American city followed suit.
Cowed by Islamic supremacy, not one media outlet dared show the ad. Or mention that this is about free speech, not Muhammad. Which is why the ad must run.
“These restrictions are unlawful regardless of the nature of the forum.”
AFDI v WMATA — the freedom to express a viewpoint free from government censorship.
The D.C. Circuit revived our free speech case for further consideration of whether the ‘Geller ban’ on ads is reasonable.
Outrageous violation our our First Amendment rights. But there is a silver lining. The antisemites, “Palestinian”terror supporters, antifa terrorists et al can’t run ads either
It is good to see an uber-left organization like the ACLU, historically aligned with the jihad force, taking up a key fight for us in defense of our First Amendment freedoms.
We have moved forward with our D.C. legal action. On July 24, our legal team, AFLC, filed our opening brief in the DC Circuit in our lawsuit against Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Read it here:
Today the US Supreme Court ruled in our favor, that the government may not refuse to register “potentially offensive” names (SIOA is not offensive, that is a smear). We have been suing to trademark SIOA (Stop Islamization of America) for a number of years but were repeatedly refused because it was considered “disparaging” to Muslims. Longtime Geller Report readers are quite familiar with our First Amendment trademark case. It was, in effect, an application of sharia law (‘do not criticize Islam’).We have been fighting to trademark SIOA (Stop Islamization of America) for a number of years but were repeatedly refused because the courts considered it “disparaging” to Muslims.

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.
