“Geller’s ads demonize Muslims at a time when they are under attack. As an educator, I fully support free speech and the open exchange of ideas. But hate speech like the bus ads has a destructive, cumulative impact on society. The term ‘savages’ has been used to demonize people of color and marginalize them throughout this country’s history.”
An excellent piece by Hatem Bazian condemning Pamela Geller’s racist anti-Palestinian advertising campaign on San Francisco buses and their role in aggravating a situation where the US Muslim community is the victim of hatred and physical assaults.
