    Saw this on the street today, on a San Francisco MUNI bus.

    the thing passes because it does not say "civilized man" against "muslims" in fact---it is said "civilized man" against "zionists" it would pass too. I was once banned from a board for deriding "jihadists"------but it was a board on which "zionists" were cursed and demonized I did argue with the moderator who told me that "zionist" is a political ideology so demonizing it is ok but JIHADIST is a religious muslim. See? there are all kinds of perspectives

    Savage?

    Calling names is a sign that you are losing.

    Thoughts? I think the SFMTA is so desperate for money that they will accept advertising they find offensive or controversial and think they are still morally superior just because they tack on a disclaimer. I am fairly certain they would happily slap similar advertisements from the jihadists on the other side of the bus.

    Anything for a buck...

    There are pro-Palestine ads on SFMTA buses and trains as well, but they're no where near as offensive.

    They look like this:

    Yes, I do have a question. How come you haven't shown any pictures like this, or is OK in your mind for these nuts to protest against the Jews like this?
    After all, these were taken up in the San Francisco Bay area. Maybe you only notice ads on buses and not the huge protests that are carried out on the streets

    Gosh...I was completely unaware that the poor defenseless Jews were fighting a battle for "civilization" no less....dare we inquire further as to their definition of "civilization"?? On the face of it, I did not realize that policies of killing and terrorizing women and children were an attribute of "civilization", but I will consult Merriam/Webster and get back to you....

    Just figgered out why you're called Sundowner. That's when you can crawl out from under your rock without fear of being stepped on. Slipping in my old age.

    People are allowed to protest whatever they want.

    I live in San Francisco, and I haven't seen any of these "huge protests" that you're talking about. Not saying that they haven't happened, but I've never seen one.
