San Francisco Free Speech 'Kill Jews' Bus Signs

The outrage of the day is what passes for free speech in San Francisco this week.

Ten inflammatory ads are being plastered on the city's Muni buses carrying quotes from Islamic Jew hating terrorists.  “Killing Jews is worship that draws us closer to Allah,” one of the bus billboards boasts.

“The purpose of our campaign is to show the reality of Jihad, the root causes of terrorism. Using the exact quotes and text that they use,” said Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Institute.

Dense onlookers will process that complexity. Wrong. They will imprint the words like a chunk of Nazi propaganda. It's a massive, inexcusable mistake..

Lets do a reverse hypothetical and see if Pam's logic passes the smell test. Suppose the KKK put a sign on a bus that reads, 'Niggers are born to serve the superior White race.'

How about that Pamela? You know, just to show people how nasty the KKK is, right?

The irony? Geller is Jewish. She is a radical Jew hating radical Islam.   Fighting hate with hate is not a winning strategy.  These signs will encourage Jew haters who agree with the rhetoric.

Freedom of speech is a right, but it's not an unlimited one. Hate speech, even if used to illustrate someone else's hate is not okay.
