Lawsuit forces Chicago to accept anti-jihad bus ads

The Chicago Transit Authority has agreed to display plain-spoken anti-jihad ads on city buses, following a lawsuit by the American Freedom Law Center.

City officials initially rejected the American Freedom Defense Initiative’s anti-jihad ads, even after the city accepted bus ads that touted a sanitized portrayal of jihad as exercise and education rather than warfare.

The center’s anti-jihad ads are “morally reprehensible — advocating racism, hatred and intolerance of cultural diversity,” said a Feb. 4 letter from Karen Seimetz, the general counsel of the city’s bus authority

The AFDI had already won two lawsuits “under the First Amendment of the United States,” Seimetz acknowledged.

Seimetz’s office did not return phone calls from The Daily Caller seeking an explanation of her “racism” and “hatred” claims.

“I am looking into suing them for their racist charge,” said Pamela Geller, founder of the AFDI.

“They are carrying water for the most extreme, brutal and racist ideology on the face of the earth. Oh the irony!” she said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

Geller’s five ads juxtapose advocates of Islamic rule with their statements.

    Thinking about your earlier post about some conservative bloggers possibly trying to start a new clique. The treatment that Miss Gellar gets is another area of serious douchebaggery by the “elite”. She pursues Islamists at great personal risk and a substantial sacrifice of her own time and gets treated like crap by some.

    Just my 2 cents

    It’s a damn shame we have to sue to force a company to advertise the truth.

    Good for her! It’s about time shitheads in America get held responsible for making false accusations of racism. Defamation of character was a legal liability in this country last time I checked.
