How nuts are they in San Francisco? Plenty. But you already knew that. AFDI counter jihad ads went up in San Francisco today, and a host of city officials, including the District Attorney and several city lawmakers are holding a news conference today to denounce the latest round of bus ads purchased by our organization.
The slaughter of Christians in Nigeria, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Algeria et al -- that doesn't warrant a statement, let alone a press conference, but my ads do. Think about that. Hundreds of thousands dead, but it would be blasphemy to talk about. The slaughter in the cause of jihad is OK, but my talking about it is the problem.
Even worse, they are so out of their minds -- the media has gotten the whole story and the ad wrong. CBS in San Francisco did a whole news segment here on the savage ad (!) going up on SF buses, saying we are calling all Muslims and Arabs in savages -- which of course we never said. Crazy time, folks.

District Attorney, Board President Chiu, and City Leaders to Denounce Islamophobic MUNI Ads
Who: District Attorney George Gascón
Board President David Chiu
Supervisor John Avalos
Supervisor London Breed
Supervisor Malia Cohen
Supervisor Jane Kim
Supervisor Scott Wiener
Supervisor Norman Yee
Ed Reskin, SFMTA
Theresa Sparks, SF Human Rights Commission
What: City leaders will hold a press conference to denounce
Islamophobic and racist advertisements by the American Freedom Defense
Initiative (AFDI). Last August, San Franciscans were outraged over AFDI
advertisements on MUNI that referred to Arabs and Muslims as "savages."
The new ads scheduled to run on MUNI buses today wrongly suggest that all
Muslims are defined by extremism and violence. Board President David Chiu
will introduce a resolution condemning the anti-Arab and Anti-Muslim
advertisements at Tuesday's Board of Supervisors meeting.
