Censorship call for Islamorealism ads in NY

Truth falls victim to political correctness and the overwhelming desire to never insult Islam or Muslims.  Facts are trumped by feelings, and to hell with reality.  The fight is heating up and the prize is our continued freedom and liberty.  We stand together or we will surely fall together.

Leftist Protesters Denounce Islamorealism Ads, Call for Censorship

Last week, protesters gathered in White Plains, New York to denounce hatred. Were they protesting against murderous Islamic jihad terror attacks against innocent civilians in Israel and elsewhere? Were they protesting the escalating persecution of Christians in Egypt, Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and religious minorities all over the Muslim world? Or was it maybe a protest against the arrest of a 14-year-old girl with Down syndrome for blasphemy in Pakistan after an imam planted burnt pages of the Qur'an among some trash she had burned?

No. None of the above. The "hatred" the protesters came together to denounce was my Islamorealism ad that has been running along the Metro-North train line: "19,250 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11/01, and counting. It's not Islamophobia, it's Islamorealism."

Only a tiny handful of protesters turned out -- four or five at most, but of course the press coverage they received was lavish and respectful.'s coverage was typically fawning, leading off by saying: "As supporters held up signs protesting Islamophobia, a coalition of community leaders and residents gathered downtown today to denounce anti-Muslim advertisements posted at Metro North stations throughout Westchester County."

Note the use of the term "Islamophobia," a word that Islamic supremacists coined in order to intimidate people away from resisting jihad, as if it were an established reality. And "a coalition of community leaders and residents" that consisted of fewer than ten people and probably fewer than five. There is no reference anywhere in the article to how many showed at the protest, or a picture that would enable the reader to tell that it was a handful, if that. But our protests, like those at Ground Zero in 2010 and 2011 that drew tens of thousands of people, garnered no media coverage.

Present was Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner, who declared: "I believe we should not be encouraging hate, we should be encouraging people to live and work together. ... I believe it's time for everybody to work harder to live together and not incite hatred." He spoke about ancient conflicting claims over Jerusalem but said nothing about the jihadist hatred that gave rise to those conflicting claims. He was silent about the murderous hatred that motivated the 19,250 Islamic jihad attacks mentioned in my ad. Like all leftists, he associates "hatred" not with jihad terror and Islamic supremacism, but with attempts to call attention to it and resist it.

Feiner also wants my ads censored. According to, he "called on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to denounce the signs, suggesting a disclaimer be placed on Metro North platforms saying the agency does not support the advertisement's message." There is no record of Feiner ever calling for such a disclaimer on the genuinely hateful anti-Israel ads that ran on the same train platforms.

According to the left, protesting slaughter, murder, and persecution is hate. Where were these nincompoops when the real victim of jihad, Israel, was the subject of a smear and defamation campaign on Metro-North? Why weren't they protesting then?
