We had submitted our winning Muhammad cartoon to run on Washington, DC buses. This was obviously not to endanger people, but to determine whether American authorities would have the will to defend free speech rights, or would surrender in the face of threats of violence. The decision has been made. Here is an important message from Pamela Geller:
Following the cowardly policy change for the New York MTA, the Washington MTA has suspended all issue-oriented ads through the end of year after we submitted our free speech ad.
Oh, the irony.
This is an end run around the First Amendment.
These cowards may claim that they are making people safer, but I submit to you the opposite. They are making it far more dangerous for Americans everywhere. Rewarding terror with submission is defeat. Absolute and complete defeat.
More demands, more violence will certainly follow. The message is that terror works.
This is sharia in America.
The only upside is the antisemitic groups will not be able to run their blood libels.
