Jim Herd: In the prog bubble

San Francisco Citizen's Jim Herd on the above ad:

This one’s new. I’m seeing it all over town. It makes me think of transparent dangling carrots, I’m srsly. It gives me an earworm is what I’m saying.

Oh what’s that, SFMTA---you don’t really want to weigh in on the Mideast, but the money’s just too good to say no?

Imagine a future SFMTA with 10,000 employees, which will happen soon enough. Maybe at that point it will start issuing foreign policy papers. But until then, this ad program will just have to do…

Rob's comment:

As of 2015, the MTA had 6,263 employees. It will take a few more years to reach 10,000. I don't know what the "dangling carrots" reference is about, but Herd seems mystified by the ad and mistakenly thinks Muni does it for the money. 

As I've pointed out for several years, Muni hates having to post the ads, because doing so violates its sappy, delusional multicultural ethos. Only that darn First Amendment loophole on free speech makes it accept the ads.

This post provides a short primer on the issue.

Muni's "foreign policy" is all about "love": See Muni's Fatuous Peace Campaign, which was the city's response to Pamela Geller's first ad campaign. (Click on Muni Jihad Ads below for more on the issue.)

The ad pictured above is from Christians United for Israel, a right-wing group. The ad below is by Pamela Geller's group:
