Rob Anderson's commentary on San Francisco politics from District 5
Monday, September 12, 2016
This reminds me of the famous "daisy" nuke ad from 1964, when Goldwater was portrayed as someone whose finger you didn't want on the nuclear trigger. Trump apparently doesn't understand the important unspoken assumption: nuclear weapons are madeso you don't have to use them. If deterrence fails, the game is lost. It's just another issue that Trump has clearly never really thought about. The Clinton campaign is doing a good job of disqualifying him for the presidency.
With no fanfare or hand-wringing by Muni, Pamela Geller has bought another ad (above) on the side of Muni buses. Recall the remarkable and clueless kerfuffle the anti-jihad ads caused here in Progressive Land several years ago.
I wrote about the original jihad ads back in 2012, ending the post with this: "The question now is, Will Muni roll over and take the ads down?"
But I have to give the MTA credit for ignoring the ads this time, since I haven't seen any notice or a silly "peace" campaign. Good that even the MTA has some kind of learning curve about the First Amendment and is no longer assuming that the people of San Francisco are morons.
And, yes, I went to Breitbart for the story after being tipped off by Jihad Watch. The ongoing threat posed by Islamic fascism is the only thing I agree with the right-wing Breitbart folks about.
