Sounds implausible, right? But it happened. As Pamela Geller put it, pigs flew.
This horrible arbiter of justice, Colleen McMahon, a Clinton appointee, has ruled that Muslim ads can be displayed in the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s system, while AFDI and SIOA ads cannot.
We’ve dubbed the initial MTA ruling, the one that McMahon is circumventing for the benefit of Muslims, the Geller Rule. The Geller rule was put into effect after Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer began countering every pro-Muslim/anti-Israel propaganda that Islamic organizations put up.
For instance, this ad
CAIR complained. Hearings were held. The MTA’s response was to put a halt on any ad that was deemed “political in nature.”
It didn’t take long for CAIR to find a sympathetic judge that would decree that Muslims aren’t political. They found hacktivist judge Colleen McMahon, a judge that gave the minimum sentence to the Newburgh Four terrorists.
When Muslims wanted to put up an ad for a pro-Muslim documentary called The Muslims Are Coming!, a propaganda movie made by Muslim comedians which is meant to counter “Islamophobia,” the MTA said no.
McMahon said, “yes,” explaining that it’s just an ad promoting comedy.
But it’s an ad promoting POLITICAL COMEDY. If a group of comedians got together and made a funny documentary about Israeliphobia and Palestine called “The Muslims Are Coming For Us!” it would be denied.
But leftist judges here in America do not have their eyes blindfolded when interpreting the law. They clearly rule according to their political philosophy.
