Muni buses are once again riding the streets of San Francisco with advertisements critical of Islam. And while city leaders say the First Amendment protects the ads, they want it known they are staunchly opposed.
The ads feature incendiary quotes by Osama bin Laden, the alleged Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hassan, and other Muslims. The ads were purchased by Pamela Geller and the American Freedom Defense Initiative, who also put ads critical of Islam on Muni buses in 2012.
As of today, the ads are still running on muni, but city officials held a rally earlier this afternoon opposing the ads, supporting cultural freedom and diversity.
