I flew into Michigan late last night after spending a good part of my afternoon and evening yesterday on the tarmac. I am being deposed today in my three-year legal battle for free speech against Dearborn SMART transit for refusing my ads to help Muslim girls living in dangerous and violent households. Longtime Atlas readers are familiar with my 2010 lawsuit: Geller Vs. Detroit
We won this case, but SMART still refused to run the ad (they were more afraid of offending Islamic supremacists than concerned with saving lives). The sixth circuit overturned our win in a "tortured and twisted" opinion. And so we are appealing. My legal team, Robert Muise and David Yerushalmi, will go all the way to the Supremes on this if we have to.
Postings will be light today -- so bear with me. These ads must run. It is a sad state of affairs in America that we have to fight to get them up, but fight we will -- we must save lives no matter how hard these government goons try to stop and silence us. We must provide networks, safehouses, and support systems to those who wish to escape. It is a difficult journey.
This is America -- everyone has the same right to a free life.
