No, I didn't know anything until the post here. Thanks for doing the research, Hank. I'm in NYC and haven't heard anything about it. I would think it would be on the front page of the NY Times if it was about to happen.
H-Antisemitism encourages scholarly discussion of the history of antisemitism and makes available diverse bibliographical, research and teaching aids.
This ad was initially planned as one of a series, probably the most provocative in that series, that the American Freedom Defense Initiative was to post. Similar ads have run in other cities. The ad was initially rejected by the NY MTA, and the group sued, with the Federal judge's decision coming down on the side of free speech. The NYT has been covering their activities, and ran a piece on this decision on April 21st.
I would like to start a discussion regarding the apparent (to me) hang-up of conservative factions on anticommunism, with communism being associated with Jews.
Is this really true? I haven't heard about it and I read the NYTimes several times a week. I'm about to go to New York City for the week-end. I can't believe this would be allowed, as in: You can't cry fire in a crowded movie theater...
I assume that people here know (although I had to do some searching myself) that the "American Freedom Defense Initiative" is an aka of "Stop Islamization of America (SIOA)"--Pam Geller et al. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists it as a hate group.
