Oppression & Tyranny: San Francisco Wages Brutal War on Free Speech

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.

Every news report on the San Francisco transit free-speech ban blames me. Every news report runs photos of my ads only. See, for example, this article. No establishment media news report mentions that my ads were a response to vicious Islamic Jew-hating ads.
