A conservative blogger won the right to run poster ads in the New York City subway system that refer to Muslim radicals as savages, says the Times Union.
Pamela Geller, who previously headed a campaign against Park 51, the Islamic community center near the Sept. 11 memorial, won a court order to post the ad in 10 subway stations on Monday.
The poster reads, "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."
The ad was previously splashed across San Francisco city buses, and Geller filed a similar suit Thursday to place the ads on public transportation in Washington, D.C., says the paper.
"If it's not a film it's a cartoon, if it's not a cartoon it's a teddy bear," Geller said. "What are you going to do? Are you going to reward Islamic extremism? I will not sacrifice my freedom so as not to offend savages."
According to the paper, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Engelmayer ruled last month that the ad is protected speech.
"Our hands are tied," MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan said. "Under our existing ad standards as modified by the injunction, the MTA is required to run the ad."
