I am "crowing"? These tools should be crowing. It's their victory. too.
Note the Puff Ho's headline -- they cannot bring themselves to call the ad what it is, pro-Israel (even the NY TImes did). You can practically hear the Puff Ho's head exploding in this moronic and inaccurate report. With the exception of the NY Times and NY1, not one of these tools called for comment.
The Gothamist is whining about our win here:
On her blog, Geller crows, "Freedom, freedom, freedom ...... the sweet, delicious taste of it. This is a great victory for the First Amendment. The freedom of speech is increasingly threatened in the U.S. in recent years—the Left and Islamic supremacists are doing all they can to rule honest discussion of Islamic jihad violence and Jew-hatred out of the realm of acceptable public discourse. Judge Engelmayer has struck a huge blow against this sinister authoritarian effort and for the freedom of speech that is the cornerstone of all our freedoms."
WNYC.org here: Again and again, anti-Islam. It's anti-jihad.
Judge Backs Blogger Over Anti-Islam Bus Ads Friday, July 20, 2012 - 12:36 PM The Associated PressAn anti-Islam activist has won a preliminary round in her First Amendment fight to place New York City bus ads calling enemies of Israel "savages."
Federal Judge Paul Engelmayer in Manhattan says he agrees with blogger Pamela Geller. He says the Metropolitan Transportation Authority should not have rejected Geller's ad.
Geller is the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative. She publishes a blog called Atlas Shrugged that warns of growing "Islamization."
The MTA rejected the group's bus ad. Its standard says ads should not demean individuals or groups based on race, religion or other protected categories.
Engelmayer granted a preliminary injunction on Friday barring the MTA from enforcing the standard.
A conference in the case is scheduled for Aug. 29.
The MTA had no immediate response Friday.
