Breitbart – The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has announced a new billboard campaign to defend freedom of speech and stand up to violent intimidation.

AFDI President Pamela Geller said in a statement: “Because the media and the cultural and political elites continue to self-enforce the Sharia without the consent of the American people by refusing to show any depictions of Muhammad or showing what it was in Texas that had jihadists opening fire, we are running a billboard ad featuring the winning cartoon by former Muslim Bosch Fawstin from our Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas.”

    Pamela Geller is an idiot..she should just decapitate herself and get it over with..Most laughable about some of these posts is the fact that some of you will swear your Christians..All Muslims are not bad people. Pamela Gellar (who has nothing better to do)running around trying to see how vile she can be to Muslims as a whole is disgusting. And if you think that’s the right way to handle this situation..you don’t “really” know what’s going on.

  • I believe Mr. Cohen has missed the mark. Pamela Geller is not offending Islam, she fighting for the freedom we cherish and is now in danger of losing if the Islamists won.
    Mr. Cohen, whether you know it or not, Pamela is fighting for my future, your future, and the future of the world. We should all stand by her side.

      George how can you possibly say she is not offending Islam and a whole group of good people. Wake up for Gods sake. You must be the same guy that thinks Obama wants everybody’s guns..The “freedom we cherish”..How about tolerance??

    Muslim demands designed to offend us will never help anyone, and can only cause unnecessary harm.

    Very good Pamela! Brave girl. Thank you fighting our battle as well….. Kind regards!

  • Billboards with cartoons designed to offend Muslims will never help anyone, and can only cause unnecessary harm.

    It would be much more helpful to publicize these
    web sites, and help the organizations behind them:

      Mr. Cohen,

      I emphatically disagree with you. The deeper problem is government’s only proper role is to protect it’s citizens against physical force and harm but they are failing in doing that. The initiation of violent force demands a strong non-violent voice of defense by citizens. Why is it many like yourself compartmentalize your premises? On the one hand you say you agree with the First Amendment, but in contradiction to that, you are afraid to inflame, provoke and offend in non-violent ways. If we all took that stand, free speech would die quickly and along with that the free exchange of ideas which keeps us free. You should integrate the principle of free speech and apply it to the issue of censorship. There is a solid principle in this old saying, “Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.”

      Hiding our expressions via speech or any other avenue is not freedom. The Colonists used their FREEDOM of speech to denounce and overthrow oppression and offended their GOVERNMENT to do so. We’re not talking about permissions here, we’re talking about RIGHTS. They threaten violence and cowards retreat but there are too many Americans who fought for these rights who stand firm and fight back!
