Excerpted from ATLAS SHRUGS: In yet another act of destruction and lawlessness, our ads have been destroyed and removed from the kiosk at Hastings-on-Hudson and the White Plains train station. Clearly, the dhimmi sanction given by the town elected officials encouraged this kind of lawbreaking. This is the second time the sign at Hastings-on-Hudson has been destroyed. Put a camera on this location and arrest the jackbooted Islamic supremacist tool.
How many Americans sacrificed their lives for our rights guaranteed to us by the First Amendment. Thugs and goons would have us live according under their totalitarian ideology. They must be soundly and roundly defeated.
I wrote about this in today’s Thinker: “Dhimmi Officials Go Sharia-Compliant”
On Friday, I received an e-mail from Peter Swiderski ([email protected]), mayor of the village of Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, saying: I wanted to share with you what our Board of Trustees sent to the entire village tonight.” What the mayor wanted to “share” was a statement about our billboard that states: “19,250 Islamic attacks since 9/11: It’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism.”
“While the Board respects everyone’s right to free speech,” they wrote, “we categorically condemn the bigotry and innuendo expressed by this billboard message. To tar a faith and its followers because of the actions of a few is deplorable, hateful and morally repugnant.” But actually, the Board is reading the idea that “all Muslims” support jihad terror attacks into my ad. That is nowhere in my message. They are the Islamophobes and racists, not I.
Do these politicians really believe that all Muslims support jihad? And if they believe it, why surrender so swiftly?
The Board asked residents of Hastings-on-Hudson to write to the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) expressing their “dismay” that our ads were not deemed “hate speech.”
