MTA Sides With #ProudSavage
Mona Eltahawy, self proclaimed "liberal Muslim" and "#ProudSavage," scored a major victory against free speech. Her act of vandalism and assault spurred Metropolitan Transit Authority in New York to ban controversial advertisements. They haven't banned all political advertisements, only the ones that “would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace.”
In other words, advertisements against Jews, right-wingers, Conservatives, Republicans, Christians, etc. will continue to be displayed because these groups do not protest with violence or by breaching the peace.
The MTA is essentially rewarding savage behavior and punishing civilized, legal political displays.
Mona tweeted her victory.
